In addition to the weekly pull list, I've been buying and reading TPBs in the last few months, mostly books that I've heard good things and decided to try out. The big one was Y the Last Man. Damn, what a great book. I bought the first volume mainly to get free shipping on Amazon. Finished it and immediately placed an order for the remaining 9 volumes. Flew through those in about a day and a half. Now I'm waiting patiently for the last volume (I think it comes out in June) to see how things with Yorick end up. I've managed to stay spoiler free regarding the last six issues or so of the book and would like to keep it that way, so please provide suitable warning if you're going to comment on the book.
One of my local comic book/music/movie/action figure/pop culture store (Newbury Comics) had a 20% off sale on all TPBs this week. I've heard great things about Geoff Jones' run on Green Lantern and the Sinestro Corps storyline, so I decided to start there. Picked up Rebirth and the first volume of Green Lantern Corps. So far, so good. Did some researching and I should have bought GLC: Recharged first, so I just placed an order for that book and volume two of GLC and the first three volumes of Green Lantern. I'm not 100% sure, but I think that'll take me to right before the Sinestro Corps storyline starts. Will grab the Sinestro Corps HCs and decide from there if I'll add GL to my monthly pull list.
Any other suggestions? My monthly pulls are mostly DC - Batman, Teen Titans, JSA, JLA, Outsiders and the Countdown weekly. The only two Marvel books I grab monthly are Daredevil and Ultimate Spider-man. GIJoe and Savage Dragon are the only two non "Big 2" books that I read. However, I do read Powers and 100 Bullets in their tpb format and enjoy them, so I have not qualms about trying a non-superhero book.
