Not even American Vampire or Unwritten?

I need to read Morning Glories #10 and do a thread for that. I may wait until tomorrow, I don't want to read an issue of MG whilst tired.


Great issue. Joe Eisma started out a little rough but he's really grown as an artist over the last year.

I don't get it, why do you want threads for single issues if you wait to read everything in trades?

Part of the issue is that most of us regulars don't really make threads to talk about specific issues. It's a shame that such a large percentage of our News Stand single issue threads are Herald or Zechs bitching about the lack of Cassie Cain in the DCU.

imo, it would just be better for the community if you had to unignore them as an option (instead of ignoring them)

sorry, that is a popular thread, where as you are not even allowed to use your father's surname!

I read some stuff in single issues. By July I think I'll be up to 7 or 8 series. :wink:

Cause, then he couldn't bitch about other people not doing it.

And btw, bastard boy, (not you Vic), I started that thread at the request of Ru, who is infinitely cooler than you (again not you Vic).

I read everything I like in single issues and buy cheap trades of stuff I might like but didn't chance. Books like Scalped, I'd like to get caught up in trades so I can switch to single issues. But there's no urgency in trades so I never catch up. It's just as easy as not to forget about most things as to go out of my way to search them out to order online at that point.

Mail order. I'm always a month behind making it even more futile to start new threads.

On the rare occasion I do buy something the week it comes out, I usually do start threads for things that I liked.
