    A lot of continuity ordering mishaps, especially in the early trades, with Wolfman vs Byrne. Lots tend to blame Wolfman for being lazy on attempting to (and not attempting to) sync up with Byrne, I don't know who was at fault. But DC certainly has order errors as obvious and bad as one (Wolfman) issue referring to another (Byrne) issue's events and then the trade ridiculously putting the referenced issue after the former issue that mentioned it already.

    (we've seen DC make surprising limited progress on dealing with such errors (they finally fixed Knightfall ones in the Omni), but that most often either doesn't happen at all or they miss ones)

    Actually, the order errors are a big reason why I'm doing this now (and not waiting further): I reminded myself that a DC omnibus of the era is likely going to replicate such errors, so why try to wait for those and cross fingers on correcting every error?

    Plus I'm gonna add a few things like some Legeends proper issues and other such additions. (Which I know any Omnis won't do)

    (this is the kind of thinking I use when choosing/prioritizing binds...they have good collections? If no, likely to soon enough have them? Do I want unlikely additions or expect trade errors?)
    This is another run I'm going to get bound eventually. Can you let me know what order you settle on when you get them done?

    Yes, I shall try to remember to post it. It will be definitive as far as I'm concerned, meaning I might make some arbitrary decisions of my own that others might not agree with (and by "others" I mean some of the well thought folks with orders I've seen online that I'm using to help me with my order). I'm pretty rigorous and weigh a lot of things, so I know I will at least be totally cool with my order.

    I've got the entirety of Byrnes run from 1986 to Jurgen's last issue in 1999 mapped in 20 volumes right here : https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...t?usp=drivesdk
    And then there were none...

    Hey GT, do you have a map just of Bryne's initial run from the MOS mini through his Superman run, with additional issues?

    Just out of curiosity, do you have any pics of your bound books? I always like to see other's books.

    Also, the trades are incomplete, one of the best Lex stories ever told "Metropolis 900 Mi"....not in MOS vol 5 where it belongs. Apparently it was punished for having no Clark or Superman.
