The library DOES have the hardcovers. So I'm guessing that's a better way to go?

For me it was. If your library has both, why not go there and try both. Find a chair and try reading a compendium and a hardcover. I find the hardcovers much easier to read without a table (due to the hardcover) and much more manageable (due to the decreased weight).

Re: The Walking Dead (and other zombie discussion)

So my boss told me that he read the volumes first and then the compendiums and that he noticed things missing and double-checked his issues/books and that the compendium skips pages. And I did find them unwieldy. So volumes are definitely the way to go.

Comixology Unlimited has some and my local library has some, both e-issues, but I found it hard to read and cumbersome to zoom in and out on a pc. Then today I got an email about some new stuff added to Hoopla digital (offered through the library) and checked it out again and it's grown extensively. 13 movies I want to watch, books I want to read, 1-9 seasons of Dark Shadows, etc. But also volumes 1-26 of TWD. AND it zooms in to a specific panel and right arrow/left mouse button on right part of the page gets you to the next panel and so on. Great way to read it. All for free of course.

I hadn't heard of things missing between the individual volumes and issues versus the compendium. That's interesting if true.

Ditto on not hearing about stuff missing from some of the collected books. I wonder what was missing? Do the compendiums have the extra stuff that the hardcovers have? What I beleive is cover art, as well as some extra type stuff.

The one thing that I sort of wish they had included in the hardcovers was the cover art in the correct spot in the book. Just as a signpost to know where in the run you are as you read through. The hardcovers do include pages every so often that have something of a title, which I assume corresponds to the trade paperbacks.
