So with the Vertigo sale, what collections should one get to experience the complete Morrison Doom Patrol? I know there are new omnibuses being collected but I don't know how far they've come yet.

There are two omnibuses (omnibii?) that came out this year.  

Book One collects #19-34 (the start of Morrison’s run) and has introductions by Morrison and editor Tom Peyer.

Book Two collects #35-50 and has a forward and sketchbook section from Morrison.

To complete the whole Morrison run, you’ll want to also pick up vol. 5 (#51-57) and vol. 6 (#58-63, plus a special) of the earlier collections.
