Wanted TPB : The Bat, the Croc, and the Snowman

Writer:Various
Artist: Various
Publisher: DC Comics (1970's and 80's)
Includes: Man-Bat: Batman #341-343, Batman #348, Detective Comics #527, and Batman #361. Killer Croc: Detective Comics #523, Batman #357, Detective Comics #524, Batman #358, Detective Comics #525, and Batman #359. Snowman: Batman #337 and Detective Comics #522

I have noticed that several of Batman's foes (Scarecrow, Two Face, Ra's al Ghul) have gotten TPBs dedicated to them. It's time to give Batman's monster foes the same treatment. I would just do it a little different and put them all in one book. A nice fat TPB!

I know you are asking...why the Snowman? Because the reason is the question. Think on that for a bit.

Wanted TPB : Red Tornado Mini-Series

Writer:Gerry Conway (Justice League of America) and Kurt Busiek (mini-series)
Artist: George PĂ©rez (Justice League of America) and Carmine Infantino (mini-series)
Publisher: DC Comics (1981 and 1985)
Includes: Justice League #192-193 and Red Tornado #1-4

The Red Tornado has been playing a major part in the Justice League for decades and these two issues put him on the map for me.
I know a George Perez Justice League of America TPB is in the works, but I would love to have these collected with the
Kurt Busiek and Carmine Infantino mini-series.

OR

Have a collection; which comprised of all the Red Tornado tales told in the World's Finest Comics from issue #265-270 and 272 and his greatest moments in the Justice League issues.

Wanted TPB : Firestorm, The Elemental War

Writer: John Ostrander
Artist: Tom Mandrake
Publisher: DC Comics (1989)
Includes:
Firestorm, the Nuclear Man #90-93 and The Spectre #19-22

This four issue story arc I found interesting, because it took on the concept of the elements being personified in the DC-verse.

Fun Fact (clipped from Wikipedia): Naiad (Mai Miyazaki) is the elemental of water for the planet Earth. The Parliament of Waves, is a group made up of older Water Elementals. The five Elemental Parliaments (Trees, Waves, Stone, Flames, Vapors) were destroyed by a Spectre level being called The Word. Naiad shares the title of "Elemental" with Firestorm the elemental of (fire), Red Tornado the elemental of (air), and Swamp Thing the elemental of (plants).
