The MLP comic launch inspired me to check out the format for the first time in almost 2 decades, and I picked up a half dozen other issues with some buzz. So far I really like Saga and Hawkeye, but it looks like those aren't exactly news to anyone here. I also thought FF #1 was pretty fun. Waiting on a pile of positively reviewed trades at the moment.
Oh man I saw the latest Locke & Key sitting in a comic shop yesterday. Had to resist peeking inside. Must wait for the trade.I really love the fact that Locke & Key is a set 6-trade run, after which the story will end. Anyone else have recommendations for good series that are of manageable length to read the whole run? 30 issues or so? Something in-between reading a graphic novel and sinking into a 100-issue comic run.
Saga is amazing. I just ordered the first trade after paging through #5 at the FLCBS on a whim. So cool.
Just recently read that first trade myself after having bought it a little while ago. Holy shit indeed. It is now on my pull list because our shop tends to sell out of the new issues very quickly. As for the trades, I think their plan is to release new issues consistently, then take a break for a little while, then have a trade come out, and then they start up new issues again. Sort of like having breaks between seasons of TV shows and releasing season box sets in the off time. I don't know why more ongoing American comic series don't do that. It probably helps make sure the writers and artists don't burn themselves out, letting the series quality stay as high as possible.
