solicitation for The Savage Hawkman #3, we Hawkfans got this tasty tidbit in DC's November listings yesterday:
HAWKMAN BY GEOFF JOHNS OMNIBUS VOL. 1 HC
Written by GEOFF JOHNS and JAMES ROBINSON
Art by PATRICK GLEASON, RAGS MORALES, SCOT EATON, DON KRAMER, ETHAN VAN SCIVER, JOSE LUIS GARCIA-LOPEZ and others
Cover by ANDREW ROBINSON
On sale JANUARY 25 • 688 pg, FC, $75.00 US
Geoff Johns's complete, acclaimed run on HAWKMAN, from issues #1-25, are collected in hardcover for the first time, along with JSA #56-58 and HAWKMAN SECRET FILES! These stories, also featuring the talents of James Robinson, Rags Morales, Patrick Gleason and many others, reintroduced Hawkman into the DCU as he tries to reunite with Hawkgirl.
But with no memory of their past lives together, Kendra wants nothing to do with Hawkman – that is, until she learns that the deaths of her parents years ago were actually murders, and she is forced to enlist Hawkman's help in unlocking the mystery and finding their killer!
While it pleases me greatly to see DC have enough faith in Hawkman to give him an oversized hardcover, I have to pass on this one since I already own all of the issues collected here, most of them already in softcover collections. Only the first two arcs (#1-4 and #5-6) do I have in single issues. So while I am tempted to buy it just to have it on the shelf, right now I am going to have to pass because frankly that is a bit rich for my blood (and my budget).
Anyone else suspect that this release is at least partially due to the Flash by Geoff Johns Omnibus?
Maybe I will see how much it is if I order it through DCBS and sell my trades...

I have all of the individual issues in question, but I managed to resist buying the trades. After seeing the wonderful job that was done with the Starman Omnibus volumes, this gem of Hawkman goodness will be mine!!!
I know it will never happen because a) there isn't enough interest to make it profitable and b) Tony Isabella isn't on good terms with DC, but a similar Omnibus volume that contained his Hawkman stuff from the 80s would be so incredibly awesome.
Mr P, I also have all of the Isabella issues, but if they did an Isabella Hawkman Omnibus, I would buy it out of principle. As it is I am seriously debating whether to get this one or not.
