Let's get one thing straight. This thread aint about your favourite characters or series, nor is it about your favourite run or your favourite series that you downloaded. This thread is about your top five trade paperbacks that you own, and cherish.
I will have to defy the requisites of the smutters here and name some TPB's that I would certainly
buy when I move to a country (hopefully in January) whose government allows you to spend more than 400$ per year on internet purchases.
! I already have:V For Vendetta
, this one was a gift from a friend of mine who went to New York, at the time I was a psychotic fan of Moore, and I just HAD to read all I could from him, I loved the movie, but I kinda looked down on it after reading the comic.The World Without Superman
, I think this one is actually Superman's "Funeral For A Friend", but on the cover it says "El Mundo Sin Superman", still, this was, and will always be, my first TPB, my mom bought it for me, may the guardians of the universe bless her soul !
Ok, so that's it for what I got, now, when I move to Peru, I can ask my cousin to buy some stuff for me, this are priority number 1:Watchmen
, because I would be completely full of shit If I didn't buy this ASAP, no more words are necessary to describe why this is a must.Batman: The Dark Knight Returns
, Yes, as unbelievable as it sounds, I AGREE WITH BROOKLYN
! But he is right, this is one of the best, if not THE best Batman story ever brought to comics, I really love it, and anyone who hates Batman won't have the same opinion of him after going through this, god bless that asshole Miller, he knows how to do something right.Taskmaster Volume 2
, a lot of you have heard me mention this one A LOT, and when it comes out on March 16th of 2011, I will treasure it like if it was an eye, a leg, or any other appendage that would actually be more valuable to me than this TPB. It is truly fantastic, and like many others before, it vindicates the comic medium with a goddamn punch to the face.Anything From Hellblazer
, I say anything because anything will have to do, these are a fuckin' bitch to get, Amazon has NONE, I've only seen "Rake At The Gates Of Hell" a long time ago, but nothing else. And even if I got my least favorite issues I would be bouncing from the walls given how this is THE comic that made me a comic-freak.
