Up until very recently, I wouldn't even consider buying a TPB. I always thought the personal value of the books were far less than actually owning the first printing of the comic, and I would much rather pay the market value for the titles.
I'm just now getting around to changing my mind because i don't have lot of extra cash. You know, starting to think that I'll never finish my full run of Incredible Hulk :(
What are your thoughts on TPB? Love them and the value, or do you think it's far better to just buy the comics?
