Does anyone read Trades from their local Library?


Recommended Posts

I use to be a HUGE comic book junkie. Spending any where between $20 to $50 a week. A couple years ago I quit reading comics for about four month and realized that it was something I really did love but needed to scale back what I read. So I went through what I read and trimmed it down to about eight or so titles a month. SO about a year and a half ago I noticed my library really started ordering quite a few trades. So for the last couple months (mainly because of summer and my daughter really taking to reading this year) I've been catching up on a lot of stuff I didn't read.


So I was just wondering if anyone else was doing this? Does your local library even carry comic trades?

Wow, either there are no comics readers here or people just don't do it. Since my daughter has started reading at a pretty good pace and the local branch of my cities library is just up the street I've read quite a bit this summer. Read all of the Before Watchmen mini's, The first three trade from Marvel Now's Thor, Hulk and Captain America (really liked Aaron's Thor). The first two trades of Valiant's Unity series (which was a lot better than I thought it would be). All the Marvel Crossovers for the last several years (Fear Itself, A vs X, Age of Ultron). A bunch of different X-men mini's and x-related what not. Hickman's complete FF run along with his East of West (first two trades) and Manhattan Projects (all four trades, quite an interesting series too). The first six trades of American Vampire (by Batman's Scott Snyder). Quite a few of DC's new 52 books that I didn't try at launch. Hadn't read Green Lantern since War of the Lanterns, so I got caught threw the First Lantern Saga. Geoff John's 3 Flash Omnibus' of his Flash work (which was around 50 issues plus). Now I'm in the middle of reading Mark Waid's Irredeemable and Incorruptible, both which have been pretty good.
