I'm always on the look out for discounted/used trades, and with three V-Stock and Slackers stores within 25 minutes from my apartment, there's usually lots of cool stuff available. I buy trades at a couple local comic shops as well, but they don't have the stock rotation the mall shops have. These ranged in price from $4.99 to $9.99!
JLA/JSA: Virtue and Vice 2002
I already read this and loved it- both teams in one! Lex Luthor is President of the U.S. in this & Despero is involved, things get freaky!
JLA: Strength In Numbers 1998
I've enjoyed a lot of 90's comics since getting back in to comics a couple years ago, but haven't read much JLA from this era. Different characters like Superman Blue, Huntress, and Steel fill out the famous team's roster here, and Martian Manhunter's in it which might be my favorite character. I loved the issues I read of his solo title from this era.
Couldn't pass on more reading with Earth 2's Crime Syndicate, evil mirror versions of the Justice League. Just thumbed through, but the art looks killer!
Justice League of America: Team History 2010
This one's pretty recent. I really enjoyed the books I've read from the era right before Final Crisis (2009), which blew my mind having just got back into reading, so I'm looking forward to this slice from right after. This is supposedly during the Blackest Night era, and thumbing through I spied a Black Lantern, so I'm into that.
The New Avengers: Illuminati 2007-2008
This appears to be right before Secret Invasion dropped, and all the characters interest me- if Black Bolt, Leader of the Inhumans, and Dr. Strange are involved, my interest is peaked.
Ms. Marvel: Secret Invasion 2008
I was enraptured by Captain Marvel's Secret Invasion TPB, in which Ms. Marvel starred, so I had no reason to think I wouldn't love this hardback for $9.99. Look at that cover! Great!
This is a compilation of stories that illuminate key elements from the Secret Invasion story arc, biographical data and history on Skrulls through the ages, and a Marvel Spotlight on Secret Invasion. A sort of companion piece to the series, if you will.
Secret Invasion: Inhumans 2009
I've been fascinated with the Inhumans since I read about them in Marvel Essential: Fantastic Four, Vol. 3 a couple years ago, and enjoyed seeing them in the War of King's (2010) book I read earlier this year.
More Later- Make It FUN!
