    I've been finding myself getting more and more away from single issues and just getting TPBs.

    Bought all of Fables, Sin City, and Y: The Last Man. Only missing the final issue for 100 Bullets and am currently waiting for the rest of Jack of Fables.

    Also started to pick up Air, DMZ, and Rex Mundi.

    Are there any other good titles out there that can be suggested?

    I like trades because they are cheaper usually, but I don't like waiting so long for the story. I have been doing it with some books that I like but don't want to get every month like Superman/Batman.

    My wife is absolutely in love with the Lions, Tigers, and Bears books. She found them at a local comic shop. Anyone know anything about them?

    Walking Dead.

    I also decided to go the trade route with Transformers. Much better than trying to collect all those covers.

    Daredevil
    Thor

    Both are very good and are action packed.

    Batman and the Outsiders is pretty cool.

    Superman & Batman vs. Alien & Predator was good too, surprisingly.

    Preacher (Note: This goes for anyone that still lives at home, I don't care how understanding your mother is, DO NOT leave this book laying around where it can be picked up and thumbed through)

    The Garth Ennis and Daniel Way Punisher stuff is pretty good.
    Authority
    Ultimate Spider-Man
    Rising Stars
    Supreme Power

    I've heard good things about Invincible, but I haven't picked it up yet.

    I was curious about Preacher but never actually flipped through an issue.

    For TPBs I'm mostly getting the non-super hero/mainstream stuff. For some reason I enjoy TPBs of stuff like the ones I posted initially.

    All the super hero stuff I still get individual issues since I never know what will be made into a TPB.

    But with stuff from Vertigo it's pretty much guaranteed to see TPB. Hell, Vertigo has become my favorite publisher now. There's just so much good stuff there.

    Nextwave, you damned heathen :mad 

    Also Invincible and She-Hulk are really, really good (Slott run only on Shulky). Not your typical capes books in the slightest. In fact, pretty much anything Slott writes is gold.

    I agree, his run on The Thing was awesome, that was such a fun book to read, but apparently the sales didn't warrent the book to keep being published.

    Preacher is a great story.

    You also might like some of the Hellblazer stuff.

    A History of Violence is pretty good once you get used to the artwork, it has nothing to do with Super-heroes.

    Invincible
    Ex Machina
    The Boys(a little more abrasive and adult themed than most other comics)

    The Immortal Iron Fist is really good to. I only have Volume 1 so far but i aim to get more.

    I only read TPB. So much better than reading them issue to issue, and it saves space and is easier to organize.

    You go out and you buy Powers, Astro City, and both Hellboy and B.P.R.D. right now, young man!

    Then, when you're ready for some really good stuff, get the collected Alan Moore run of Swamp Thing, then hop on over to Grant Morrison and he'll fix you up with Animal Man and The Doom Patrol.

    Oh, and The Sandman, duh. And Watchmen, Squadron Supreme, Marvels, and Kingdom Come.

    Yes, yes I do get a lot of TPBs, why do you ask?

    Preacher is a fantastic read probably the best TPB i have ever read.. from angel have sex with demons to a guy with a ass for a face...fantastic
    i thought watchman was a bit overrated but worth a read

    I put in an order for Nextwave this week. Hopefully it'll be worth the wait. Also put in an order for all of the DMZ's and noticed from an online search that Fables is continuing again so I'll be picking that back up for TPB.
