I have discovered that my public library has a pretty large collection of current TPBs so I keep current on all the Ultimate titles, and most of the other mainstream stuff. The only thing I still purchase are the Marvel Essential Collections. I have been lucky enough to find 3 so far at Half-Price Books for around $7.00 or $8.00. I also happened along a "3 for a $1.00" comics sale at a HPB recently. I dropped about $30.00 on a variety of stuff.

If you are not familiar with the Marvel Essential Collections, they are black and white reprints of original comics. The usually contain around 18-20 issues of the title. The retail price is $16.99. I think it is a very nice deal. So far I have Fantastic Four Volume 1, which contains FF 1-20, Amazing Spider-Man Volume 1 (ASM 1-20), and X-Men Volume 4. I believe that Santa may bring me the 1st volumes of Punisher and Daredevil.

DC has a similar line.

The main thing that's driven my "new" comics buying way down is that every book is $3 now, which is way too fucking high.

I'd rather pay 50c for an old book out of the bargain bin.  Of course the shit I read (Cap, Avengers) tends to fill the bargain bins so that makes my choice easier.


Well with Wolverine and Spidey being in the Avengers now, Avengers is generally near the top of the sales charts nowadays.


Precisely why I don't read it.  Gimme a 15-20 year old issue with Vision and Wonder Man and shit.
