How big is the TPB? I remember buying the hardcover and it was pretty damn enormous.Originally Posted by Duxdoom
I recently got:
Essential Avengers vol 3
Neil Gaiman and John Romita Jr's ETERNALS tpb
Starman volume 1 (James Robinson's run)
Jack Kirby's Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen vol 1
so, not worth it
Haunt Volume 3 - Been waiting for this one for a while now. I'm actually glad Kirkman left as the writer because he was starting to repeat himself like he always does. Honestly, it started to feel more like Invincible than a different comic. Greg Capullo did some great artwork though.
Batman Bruce Wayne: The Road Home - My issue with the Batman books is how out of order they're published. But I still liked this, Bruce checking up on everyone to see how they've been since he left.
Incorruptible Volume 6 - Interesting, I don't really feel too strongly about this series one way or the other but I still liked it.
Irredeemable Volume 9 - Much better. I really liked getting the origin stories for the pair. Wondering what'll happen to Tony next.
Kick Ass - Meh. Honestly, that's all I can say. I was very under whelmed by this whole thing. I think Millar's better when he writes established characters rather than attempting to create his own. At least then I care about the characters. Probably not going to pick up volume two, nor will I check out any of Millar's other creator-owned work since I had the same problem with Wanted. I'll watch the movie adaptations but unfortunately the comics do nothing for me.
The Boys: Good for the Soul - Interested in seeing what'll happen now that Butcher knows about Lamplighter, but aside from that I still feel nothing for this series.
The Sandman: The Kindly Ones - A little dragged out, but wow, I enjoyed this a lot. I knew he was going to die, but wow, nice work Gaiman.
The Walking Dead: A Larger World - This could work if Kirkman has a set ending he's working towards, but if not it's looking like he's going to retread old ground.
The Eldritch Kid: Whiskey and Hate - Picked this up at Supanova. Really enjoyed it. It's like Hellboy meets Preacher, if you took out Ennis' need to be offensive.
Dreamless - Sat next to the artist at Supanova and I bought this since I liked it when it came out as a webcomic. Lovely story but the artwork is really the main draw.
Daredevil: Parts of a Hole - Can't believe I found this. Loved it, really need to find more stuff by David Mack, who I got to sign this.
Fatale - Icon's going to get a lot of my money soon. I need more Brubaker and Phillips.
Moon Knight 1 - Always love Bendis and Maleev together, though I think Maleev should stick to his painted style as it's his best. His inking, not so much.
