Same here. I hated the way these were originally collected. I haven't taken the time yet to rebuy them, but probably will.
As far as only including pertinent scenes in some issues rather than the entire issue...That used to piss me off. I think it was Legacy or Contagion the first time where you only got a couple of pages of Catwoman - when it listed the issue in the contents. If you list the issue, I assume it's complete unless you clearly put it under another heading also including material from...
Yeah, whatever smiley

One thing to keep in mind is that DC in their utter uselessness have managed to get the solicitations for most of these completely wrong. If you check the Amazon reviews for accurate issue lists, you will find some very different to what is advertised.

Ok, let's try to tackle this:

Contagion - I haven't bothered. It does NOT contain the issues leading into Legacy (that has apparently been held back for Legacy itself). It has unrelated issues of Robin etc easily available in other existing or upcoming TPBs. The only thing it seems to have unique to this publication is a three part Deadman story unrelated to anything and inessential.

Legacy - Makes sense for you to get it for the specified reasons. But until it's actually out, the contents remain speculation at best.

War Games - I'd recommend War Crimes as a separate book and then Detective #800 single issue, that gets you everything and looks tidier than matching new and old. Also War Crimes comes after Under The Hood Vol 1 so is tidier for timeline obsessives wink

Murderer/Fugitive - These are massively expanded. I hated the fact that the original ones cut out massive chunks of single issues. I guess I can see the benefit in the story flow, because issues like Batgirl and Nightwing may have only had one 'scene' (a few pages) of tie-in content with the rest dedicated to their own isolated stories, but personally I prefer the complete editions.

Evolution - The new edition is reported to double the issue count with the previously uncollected issues between Evolution and Officer Down.

NML - I got all of these, they are massively expanded, probably double the size of the originals.

Catwoman - Book 4. The One You Love and Book 5. Backward Masking will complete the run for you with a little duplication, but I picked these up too and am happy with the result.

Birds of Prey - I too picked up Book 2 for the previously uncollected material (although that may have been pointless as I had the single issues). I'm going to get every book until they go into the Gail Simone run I already have because memory says they did a complete collection of her run between the dedicated TPB series and other related crossovers (and Oracle The Cure).

Batgirl - These too are expanded with a lot of previously missing material. They still royally suck, so definitely for the completionist only. Yes, that includes me. rolleyes I once reviewed this series with a rule that I would only say nice things about it, that was fun wink

Nightwing - Only a small fragment of uncollected material so far, I have not bought these and am just filling the gaps from my monthly duplicates (yeah I kinda bought Nightwing monthlies twice...). One we get to the fully uncollected material I'll jump on, there are a few Chuck Dixon issues never collected, as is the majority of the sublime Devin Grayson run, cannot wait for these to be collected at last!

Robin - I've done a complete rebuy on these because they are actually collected in a sensible order this time. As with many of these, the print quality fucking sucks, which is a crying shame.

Azrael - The first volume recollects SoA and starts the solo series with some good bridging (I know Azrael Year One Annual was published later but that would have been good here, unfortunately it isn't though). None of that ever got TPBs before. Other than what has made it into crossover collections, everything going forward will be new to TPB so is highly recommended for the completionist. Honestly, the series itself isn't great, and really falls apart the longer it goes on. But it still has good moments along the way. If you are at all interested, I would certainly pick them up.
---

I've been more brief than I'd like due to time pressure, but hope that helps a bit.

I've been getting the Nightwings (of course) and have been contemplating the Robins. I'd say the Road to NML is a must since it has some previously un-reprinted material IIRC.

Ok I'm wondering which reprints to get and who better to ask than you guys tongue

Ok so.... deep breath!

Contagion - I have the old TPB so debating. It's nice it contains the Catwoman issue that lead into Legacy but a shame it doesn't have Bane of the Demon. Not sure if it's worth the upgrade.

Legacy - Definitely getting since I sold my TPB years back thinking I had 2 copies....

War Games - I have Drums and Games 1-3 but not Crimes. So maybe vol 2 but maybe I'm better off getting War Crimes

Fugitive - I have the 3 old TPBs so not sure if there's anything relevant added in the new trade

Evolution - I have the old TPB so we'll have to see

NML - I bought all the new editions but I realized they released a Road to NML 2 that I don't have. worth it?

Catwoman - I have the old tpbs and got vol. 3 Under Pressure which that started collecting uncollected materials. Anything since?

Birds of Prey - likewise I have the old trades and got the new BoP vol.2 which was uncollected before. Will have to look into vol 3

Batgirl - I have all the Cassandra Cain tpbs released at the time so am I missing anything?

Nightwing - same as Batgirl

robin - I have Tragedy and Triumph, a Hero Reborn and flying Solo oso are the new trades worth?

Azrael - I have Sword of Azrael and not much else I think

phew!

There didn't seem much reason to start a new thread, so I just altered the title of this one.

This film was pretty great also! It felt like a love letter to the history of Batman on screen. Definitely the more you know about Batman the funnier it is. Very well observed humour.

My latest re-read noticing one I had forgotten (or ten years ago when I last read it I wasn't taking note of these instances like I am now) has finally added Timmy Drake to the list! cheesy I bet he has more to add.
