    Just arrived:
    Hellboy Library Edition Vol 1
    Hellboy Library Edition Vol 2

    Arriving Friday via Ebay:
    Uncanny Avengers Omnibus

    IST shipped today:
    Aboslute All Star Superman
    Invisibiles Omnibus
    Thor by Simonson Omnibus
    Fantastic Four by Waid and Weiringo Omniubs

    CGN Special Order (1 - 2 weeks out):
    Daredevil by Bendis Omnibus 1
    Daredevil by Bendis Omnibus 2

    Once my Ebay sales end Saturday I will be ordering one of the following (PLEASE OFFER YOUR ADVICE!):
    Astonishing X-Men Omnibus
    OR
    Invincible Ultimate Collection Vol 1, 2 and 3


    WOW. When it's typed out like that I need to slow down!
    So many good runs in that. I LOVE Hellboy but please try to put aside the hype or your preconceived notions based on the movies (any of them). I've read the whole run up to In Hell like 3 times at least in the last decade and I appreciate the whole as is it but at first it only really grabbed me with the Chained coffin short stories onward (namely The Corpse).

    Also Invisibles... listening to podcasts with Morrison and reading that book changed the way I think and it's one of my all time favorite series but it's not for everyone that's for sure.
    And Bendis DD is just the best DD in my opinion (Born again, Brubaker and the current Zdarsky run comes close. I know it's debatable and most people put Miller's above Bendis but I most of that run did not live up to it's reputation for me).

    As for recommendations, it's tough. AXM is probably the best self contained X-men story, back to basics, consistent art, but Invincible is such a wild ride that keeps escalating and it's one of the most consistent long running superhero series ever. I truly love both but I would say only buy Invincible if you're ready to take the plunge on the rest of the series (budget friendly solution would be the 3 compendiums).

    Haha I remember that feeling, when you just say screw it and buy both

    Not saying you've shouldn't have but Invincible doesn't really require any additional material, that's why it's one of my favorites. It has a 2 issue crossover with Astounding Wolfman but you are fine without reading that series (although I've actually did read it a long time ago but nothing else, just Invincible).

    But Astounding Wolfman is a fun read too!

    Not a trade or graphic novel but still a cool item. my aunt found this at goodwill for me today. This local goodwill has been a nerd haven for me with The Batmoblie, a SPiderman poster, and lots of action figures.

    Sweet. I’m actually reading New Frontier right now. I normally only get omnis and only have Luthor/Joker in absolute. Just got the absolute Daytripper. Only my second one.

    Those are all great pickups. The lockdown has severely reduced my average books arriving each week, close to 1 or 2 each week.
