What were the last three trades you bought? Recommended or no?
Walking Dead Vol. 8: Made to Suffer - Simply put, one of the most heartbreaking things I have ever read. I needed a drink after finishing this one. Recommended.
Fables Vol. 4: March of the Wooden Soldiers - I am way late to the party on Fables. While I enjoyed the first three trades, it wasn't until this one that I understood why people seem to worship this book. Great story. I recommend it big time.
The Legion of Super-Heroes: The Beginning of Tomorrow - This is the only volume of the Post-Zero Hour Legion that I can find in trade. If you're a fan of that particular Legion, recommended. If not, get therapy.
The Incredible Hercules vol.1: Against the World - fun charming stuff, the wife liked it too. Definitely recommended
Immortal Iron Fist vol. 3: Book of the Iron Fist - not recommended (unless you're really into Iron Fist mythology), not that it's bad but the first two volumes contain the meat, this is the extracurricular.
Nova vol 3: Secret Invasion - haven't finished reading it yet, but the Galactus story was flippin' cool. Recommended.
Scud: The Whole Shebang- I bought the first trade when I was in eighth grade, oh some years gone, wanted to see the end. I can't say I'd recommend it unless you were wallowing in nostalgia, honestly.
All of Annihilation- Thanks to judicious use of coupons and buy-one-get-one-half-off deals, I got all three trades for like twenty bucks. I read the first couple trades of Nova prior to this and liked those way better- I'm kinda failing to see what the big deal was, I guess. The Ronan mini read like a weird Transformers filler issue starring, like, that Pretender that looked like a whaler, but I suppose that's just Furman for you.
Ares: God of War- Plan A is lighting yourself on fire and having Hercules throe you at stuff? Sign me the fuck up.
Daredevil: Born Again- Loved the hell out of it when I was fourteen and loved it even more at *cough*. I was just as enthralled by its pacing. This time around, what I was struck by was the logical abruptness of its ending. Still the best comic I ever read, though. Highly recommended.
The Death of Captain America: The Man Who Bought America: Vol. 3- Jason Bourne meets superhero comics. What's not to love?
Scott Pilgrim vs. The Universe: Vol. 5- Took it behind the CHUD bleachers and made out with it.
