Many consider it the most readable Hulk-related story of all time.

Hope you have a forklift to get that box off your front porch!

Seriously, I'm jealous of all those tasty titles. I'm still a number of omniboo behind on my reading, including the new MOKF that just arrived.

I've gotten in the habit of picking up omnibuses as soon as they are released because prices always start increasing once there is a hint they are going out of stock or out of print.

I keep waiting on the Golden Age DC Omnibuses getting clearanced and I don't think it's going to happen now.

Personally I'm not a fan of the Omnibus format for reading. They look cool and display nice but they're awkward to hold onto and actually read in my opinion. Same thing for the DC Absolute editions.

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

Well, I just spent a TON of money on a TON of books - too embarrassed to say exactly how much/how many.

BUT, I did do the math, and it comes out to roughly $1.50 per issue collected in all the books. And these are all high quality, over-sized, deluxe hardcovers with no ads. When you consider that the typical floppy is $4 these days and littered with ads, that's a hell of a deal!

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

^ Yeah, same here.

After briefly flirting with digital (just classic stuff via GITs and grey market comps mostly), I've swung back into buying hard copy books in a big way.
Loving the new DC omni's, and the Marvel Epics. Nearly every week since late summer I've been placing an IST order, trying to at least keep the extra 2% off going. Lots of Omnibus purchases and some interesting looking Humanoid releases that I'm looking forward to getting lost in this winter.
The Bernie Wrightson AE and Alex Ross - DC World's Greatest Superheroes Absolute just came in today.

The biggest boon to my reading/collecting though, came several months ago when I lucked into finding a killer deal on a very comfortable office chair I'd been wanting for a few years now. A comfortable chair, a nice cheap ottoman, and some good lighting (and a ample supply of reading glasses) and I can finally make a dent in this massive warehouse of books I've collected over the years.

I bought the Classic X-Men Omnibus and Justice League America Detroit Era Omnibus on sale at InStockTrades.

I still have most of the retro Classic X-Men issues...somewhere. I have much less of the Detroit Era JLA. Some of it may even be new to me.

Pics immediately or a complete, thorough accounting of what you got.

I probably won't be able to make it out there for a couple of days.

Wasnít too bad, only 15 or so. But hitting another Ollies tonight, pics later.

An oversized hardcover called something like the DC art of Brian Bolland has me most excited. A bunch of Showcases for $3-4 too.

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

About a month ago:
Batman Volume 2: I Am Suicide (Rebirth)

And then just a little bit ago Amazon sent me a shipping notice for Venom & X-Men: Poison-X. I forgot I even ordered it and think it was a late night oops purchase but itís no big deal. Iíll still give it a read.

I snagged the Absolute edition of The Long Halloween off eBay for a song. One of my favorite Batman stories.

The deluxe Irredeemable Volume Five hardcover. I have the first five volumes now in deluxe format. They make a nice set.

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

I just ordered Superman in the Seventies.

I just received a few in the mail...

Marvel Masterworks Daredevil Vol 2, Spider-Man: Hobgoblin Lives, Iron Man Epic Collection The Enemy Within, Green Lantern/Green Arrow by O'Neil and Adams, among them.

I also found a hardcover copy of The New Teen Titans: Games over the weekend.
