I'm interested to know which characters appear in the Superman comic strip and the Batman comic strip, but this wiki doesn't seem to have any pages for any of the stories despite the fact that many of the strips have been reprinted in hardcovers and trade paperbacks. If anyone has these books, can you please create pages for each story?
I know everyone's excited about the new stories, but these forgotten classics from the Golden Age and Silver Age need some love too.
It's not a conscious decision not to cover them in depth, however, it's more a practical one.
As you can see in the examples Koavf linked, they're awkwardly named and awkwardly ordered. They often only spanned one row/three panels, and had no indidivual identifiers other than the date. If we did separate pages for every day, we'd have so many practically similar pages our SEO ranking gets tanked. Ordering them by "Storylines" isn't really possible either as they didn't really have names either. And if we were to list everything on the strip page, it'd be so long it would become innavigable.
Short version: we haven't really got a clue how to best cover them within our existing framework. We've for some pages, but nothing in depth.

This is actually the real issue. Those books are not easy to come by. Even completionists have a hard time hunting them down. And that's the second issue. Time. There just isn't enough people here dedicated to even fill out the pages for the recent comics. Chances of folks willing to spend their spare time indexing long forgotten comic strips is rather slim.
It's nice to think someday it will happen, but for now keep it in the endless "to do" list of tasks on the wiki.
SforHope brings up the most key issue: manpower. But NetSpiker, I think we are all in agreement in principle that the content you mention should be here, it's just that we only have so much time and so many editors. :/
The problem with storylines is not all the strips have them, so you'll get an inconsistent mess. I've got the Wonder Woman: The Daily Comics collection (which is published by IDW, so that's another point of discussion), and it's just an endless string of strips that isn't broken up.
