I read somewhere that there were printing problems with this trade.

Is there something wrong? Like DC recent printing of the Teen Titans (pages upside down)

Help?

I don't know about any printing problems, but DC didn't include the three prose stories Moore wrote for some of their UK annuals. Two Superman stories and a Batman story. Maybe Moore wouldn't allow it (if they even asked him)? I think he still owns the rights to those stories.

I believe the "printing problem" was that Amazon.com listed the book as cancelled.

Didn't include Swamp Thing #20, either.

Yes, it was a story called "Protected Species" that ran in the 1984 UK annual, "The Superheroes" (it's sometimes erroneously listed as having run in the '84 Superman annual). The other Superman prose story by Moore was called "I was Superman's double". It ran in the 1985 UK Superman annual and was about a cab driver bragging to his passenger that he once filled in for Superman (the passenger turns out to be Clark Kent). PDFs of both of these can be read here:

There was also a Batman story called "The Gun" which ran in the 1985 UK Batman annual. It traced the path of the gun that was used to kill Batman's parents.
