If you've ever had the chance to check out an ABSOLUTE edition of a comic, you know how amazing they can be. They're not just oversized (dimensions are around 12.7 x 8.6 x 1.4 inches), they're a different way to read your comics. Seeing them in this format is almost like watching a movie in high definition.
Today, DC has announced two upcoming releases. The first is ABSOLUTE GREEN LANTERN: SINESTRO CORPS WAR.
It will contain GREEN LANTERN 21-25, GREEN LANTERN CORPS 14-19 and GREEN LANTERN: SINESTRO CORPS SPECIAL 1. The Sinestro Corps War storyline really changed the face of the Green Lantern comics.
The second release announced will be ABSOLUTE BATMAN AND ROBIN: BATMAN REBORN.
This release will collect the Grant Morrison, Frank Quietly, Philip Tan, David Finch, Cameron Stewart, Andy Clarke and Frazier Irving stories in BATMAN AND ROBIN 1-16 as well as BATMAN THE RETURN 1.
The Absolute editions tend to have a retail price of one hundred dollars but usually pop up around at various places with lower prices. ABSOLUTE GREEN LANTERN: SINESTRO CORPS WAR will be released in September 2012 and ABSOLUTE BATMAN AND ROBIN: BATMAN REBORN is out in November 2012. That gives you some time to think about it and to start saving up for them.
