The Seven Soldiers of Victory TPBs Are Trying to KIll Me!

From Newsarama:

Written by Grant Morrison
Art by Simone Bianchi, Cameron Stewart, Ryan Sook & Mick Gray and Frazer Irving
Cover by Stewart
The brilliant mind of Grant Morrison (THE INVISIBLES, JLA, ALL STAR SUPERMAN) is showcased once again as the collections of his most groundbreaking and ambitious project yet! Comprised of seven different 4-issue miniseries and two bookend Specials, this colossal 30-part tale of death, betrayal, failure, joy, loss, romance, triumph and redemption is being collected in 4 volumes!
This second volume features the continuing exploits of four of the seven soldiers, and collects KLARION #2-3, SHINING KNIGHT #3-4, GUARDIAN #3-4, and ZATANNA #3. Independently, each of these characters is featured in a story arc that redefines their purpose in the DCU. But their stories also interweave with the other Soldiers' tales, and tells a grander story of a devastating global threat to mankind. Together, these reluctant champions must arise and work together to save the world...without ever meeting one another!
On sale March 22 • 176 pg, FC, $14.99 US

"Hi, I'd like to have the Klarion the Witchboy miniseries in trade paperback form, please!"
"Sure kid. Only thing is that it's spread out over three seperate volumes."
"But it's only FOUR ISSUES!!"

I give up. Thank god I actually do want the entire thing in TPB, because if I only wanted a couple of them I'd be tearing my hair out.

Dc could have put the minis out by themselves, but no. With this they send a big "FUCK YOU!" to all their fans who'd rather see a well-thought out, masterly-crafted event-driven story, rather than Infinite Shitebox. Bah. Merry Christmas, geeks!

At least they reconsidered their original plan of collecting individual pages from each book in random order, then changing all dialogue to Clash lyrics.

That would have been a little aggravating.
