Re: Comics and Graphic Novels Vol. 2

Trade waiting is usually cheaper if you consider how much it is to buy a new issues within a month or two its out.

Lets say the normal issue is $2.99. A normal trade is 4-6 issues and costs $10-14 on Amazon.

4 issues at $2.99 + tax is $12 + tax, 6 issues is $18 plus tax. Plus there is also the peace of mind of only getting stuff you know may be good or worth it. You could buy every Spider-Man issue this year and guaranteed there will be a good number of bad issues that you wish you didn't spend money on. If you wait for the trades, you'll at least know what the opinion is and what could be avoided.

And then there's also the alternative of reading them online and then if you know something is great, buy it.

First statement contridicts the second

Also if its price youre worried about and youre not worrie about waiting, most single issues are significently cheaper by the time the trade comes out. Espcially the big events and more popular series because comic shops over order them like crazy

Re: Comics and Graphic Novels Vol. 2

I'll have to see.

I don't even know any comic shops around me, so yea that could be a problem.

I still have a ton of actual novels I want to pick up so singles are pretty far down the line.

i only buy issues that are really good

i enjoy picking up wonder woman and batman every month for some reason. mostly wonder woman though. i felt batman was too decompressed for a while before the final issue of court of owls pulled it together

better?

Re: Comics and Graphic Novels Vol. 2

anyone have a tablet where they do their comic book reading? how does it compare to owning the print version of the book?

Re: Comics and Graphic Novels Vol. 2

Only buy single issues for my favorite titles like TWD, Locke and Key, my new favorite SAGA!!!, etc. Otherwise its trades all the way.
