Two new Absolute editions -- Absolute Kingdom Come and Absolute Dark Knight -- are among the highlights of DC Comics' list of new collected editions scheduled to arrive in stores in July and August.

Scheduled to arrive in stores in July, the Absolute Kingdom Come HC collects the work written by Mark Waid and illustrated by Alex Ross, with Ross providing a brand-new cover painting. The two-volume, slipcased set, coming for the 10th anniversary of the original mini-series' debut, includes an extended character sketch section, a peek into Ross' sketchbook, text pieces by Waid and Ross, annotations of the entire series, rare art (from magazines, trading cards, T-shirts, the novelization and more) promotional images, a gallery of DC Direct Kingdom Comie products, the evolution of a story page, and more.

And coming in August, the Absolute Dark Knight collects both The Dark Knight Returns, written by Frank Miller and illustrated by Miller and Klaus Janson, and The Dark Knight Strikes Again, written and illustrated by Miller. This two-volume, slipcased Absolute edition contains all previous collection covers, retail posters, excerpts of press coverage, and sketchbook material originally seen only in the tenth anniversary edition of The Dark Knight Returns, along with never-before-seen material such as the plot to issue #4 of The Dark Knight Returns, excerpts of scripts to The Dark Knight Strikes again, and a sketch section. In addition, Miller provides a new introduction, a new cover, and new art for the slipcase.
