I do buy trades and hardcovers though. Of the hardcovers I buy, one of my favorites is INVINCIBLE. In my opinion, this is a great comic. Superheroes done right. A full, rich world of characters that you can really get to know and care for. I have always been a fan of Superboy. The idea of a character destined for greatness and you are along for the ride of him growing and learning. This is how I think of Invincible. Odds are he will be one of the best but right now, he is just trying to find his way and do what's right.
I only purchase the INVINCIBLE ULTIMATE COLLECTION's as they come out once a year. It takes a lot of patience to not buy the paperbacks that come out more frequently, or the monthly. But I am rewarded when the big hardcover comes out. If you have a chance, give it a try. There is another hardcover I pick up that only comes out once a year, but I will save that for another post.
