    I love a lot of the stuff IDW puts out, but I'm not into buying 6 comic books per story and then be flooded w/ them. I just wait until the graphic novel is out and read all at once. I figured I'd start a "book club" of sorts to discuss current and already read graphic novels, or one thats on the read list.

    Already read:
    Warwithin Vol. 1
    Warwithin Vol. 2
    Infiltration
    Stormbringer
    Escalation
    Spotlight #1
    Evolutions: Hearts of Steel
    The Animated Movie 20th Anniversary
    Generations: vol. 1

    Currently reading:
    Spotlight #2

    To be read:
    Target: 2006

    I was not as, impressed as I thought I would be. The whole thing with not wanting to wake Prime? There were some cool concepts of him, plus it would have added to the story.

    You know I'm not sure, and even though digest size may be more convenient, E.J. Su's art has to be seen in color. It's amazing.

    I hate how they publish them as "manga" by just printing the exact same thing in black and white. Manga has a totally different coloring style, and these sucky reprints are too dark, color muddled and hard to read.

    If they want to do manga right, either recolor them entirely or print straight black and white like the old UK comics did.
