What's the last TPB/Graphic Novel you bought?

We have all kinds of threads like this over the rest of the forum; so I figured that we should have them in Comic Book Talk too. They might be fun, and spur some additional conversations.

I just received my second order from InStockTrades. One of the titles inside should be Crisis on Multiple Earths: The Team-Ups vol 2. My current reading project is to go thru selected DC history from the Silver Age to the new 52, hitting all of the major events and crossovers.

Re: What's the last TPB/Graphic Novel you bought?

Today, I got the Killer volume 4 in the mail, as well as Mark Schultz' Xenozoic, which came courtesy of Kickstarter.

The last thing I actually purchased (as opposed to having a preorder delivered) was probably an Amazon order a few weeks ago when I bought the third TPB of Wasteland by Antony Johnston and Christopher Mitten.

Even being inside of Colonial Williamsburg can't stop me.

Re: What's the last TPB/Graphic Novel you bought?

My copy of Chrono Mechanics by Art Thibert showed up today. Technically, I bought it months ago when the Kickstarter campaign was running, so if that doesn't count, then the answer would be the DC's Shade miniseries and volume 1 of Sandman Mystery Theater, both a direct result of my readthrough of the Starman Omnibuses.

Re: What's the last TPB/Graphic Novel you bought?

I'm avoiding this thread because my backlog is too overwhelming to start memorializing my additional purchases.

Just received a misc comic lot from ebay that included a very hodgepodge collection of new books, old 12 cent books, promo items, and trades. It was cool to finally get this:

Re: What's the last TPB/Graphic Novel you bought?

used at half.com, listed as new/like new though and came that way save for a little damage from shipping on one other title. If you can find a seller with several titles you want at Half you can put together some decent orders, but I do find their interface slow and it's a crap-shoot to find someone with a lot you may want (it can be dangerous though too, I pared down my order that had gotten up to close to $100 with stuff just because it was cheap).

Re: What's the last TPB/Graphic Novel you bought?

I just went a little crazy and bought two huge DC trade lots on ebay. 42 books from the last decade for less than $200. Some Countdown and 52 and various Crisis stuff, lots of JSA and JLA, some Hawkgirl and Flash and Human Target, even a bit of Vertigo.

Re: What's the last TPB/Graphic Novel you bought?

Hush, which might be the most overrated book in a long time. But maybe I have grown Jim Lee's art (which I used to love when I was 12).

Re: What's the last TPB/Graphic Novel you bought?

I'm a sucker for Omnibuses...

I just got this one:
(Mighty Thor volume 2)


Probably some of the best, most creative work Kirby has ever done, which is saying something.


And this:



Still the best iteration and storyline Iron Man's ever had.

Re: What's the last TPB/Graphic Novel you bought?

I love that Iron Man omnibus. I'm very much looking forward to the Epic Edition that picks up where it left off with the start of Denny O'Neil's and Luke McDonell's run. But pretty much from the start of the first Michelinie/Layton run, through the O'Neil/McDonnell run, on to the second Michelinie/Layton run, that's a solid stretch of more than 100 issues that are just stellar.

Meanwhile, I wandered into a used bookstore today and wandered out with these:

Re: What's the last TPB/Graphic Novel you bought?

Finally opened my last instocktrades order.

Had to buy the stupid overpriced Carnage book because it has some Micronaut appearances. Looking forward to reading the massive Elephantmen book which was quadruple the page-count and half the price.
