What would that contain? The Bill Mantlo Alpha Flight issues (which would take up a big chunk of book)....some random Marvel Fanfare issues....a Wolverine one-shot (which was pretty bad)....
The Rocket Raccoon mini has already been collected.
It seems that  a lot of Mignola's work at Marvel was alongside Mantlo.
I thought he did the Sword Of Solomon Kane mini and some of the later DeMatteis Moon Knight as well?

Nope. That's being collected on its own. It wasn't that good of a story though, so I doubt it would have been enticement for Lou to get this book.
This collection is just such a horrible rip-off. It's just a collection of odds and ends. I knew that the Mignola Batman Elseworlds "The Doom That Came to Gotham" wasn't included, but I forgot Mignola did the artwork on Cosmic Odyssey too.
They just put together all of Mignola's DC work that hasn't been collected yet, and are charging $40 for it. If it were $15, it would be a fine enough deal.
Now I think about this more, a Marvel uncollected Mignola would probably have better stuff in it than the DC one.
(Even though they've already collected the Fafhrd and Gray Mouser series he did with Chaykin as a TPB...)

To be fair, they started rebooting Midnite's story during his second appearance in the original series, when Ennis decided he had to be from Jamaica rather than Haiti, and retconned his sister's death...

As the better of the two stories wasn't pencilled or inked by Mignola, I doubt it'll be in this collection.
(But the Cosmic Odyssey will, of course...)
