I love your collection. Am seriously envious. The stand outs for me are Moonshadow, The Maxx and Junk Culture (in fact anything by Ted McKeever i absolutely love)

@feebadger: ^_^ I love stuff like that, until the new 52 Batwoman relaunch, I hadn't really enjoyed a cape-and-tights title since X Men in the 90's. I am determined to have every Vertigo title EVER!

That's a pretty big call. I've got most of them in digital format, but I know that's just cheating and makes me feel kind of cheap and sleazy. Don't know why. it's like the difference between discovering an amazing new band on some forgotten CD you found in a record shop as opposed to buying a song on itunes. It's just not right. Anyhoo, have you read Eddy Current by Ted mcKeever? Not a Vertigo title, but amazing. Don't get me started on the Vertigo titles. I could waffle all day (and i probably just have). Byee!

@feebadger:

No I haven't read that yet, I'm quite intrigued by McKeever....

I know what you mean about digital comics, but that is definitely the way I would have to do it (on my PC I currently have something like 20Gb of just Vertigo comics). Then all I do is the ones I really love, I pick up in real life. Because while I enjoy a lot of them, there are only a few titles that I just need physical copies of.

That said, I do have an awful lot of actual comic books. You can't beat the smell of them. Also, people look at you funny if you hold a computer up to your face to the same degree that you would with a book! I was reluctant to go digital, but I am quite enamoured with it now.

Of the above, I only have Batwoman and Young Liars digital, the rest is physical (I have yet to add most of my digis to the list)

Oh, and waffle away ^_^

@BumpyBoo: Oh, don't worry, the waffle is coming! I'm just going to try to spread it out over the coming weeks and months instead of hitting you with it all at once ;P

regarding digital comics, the one thing i hate most? Can't read 'em upside down. I have this strange habit of liking to read comics in strange and unusual positions so i'm usually either scrunched up into a small ball somewhere or i'm hanging upside down off the couch. Can't do that with my laptop.

@feebadger:

Yes, that is the problem I have!! Can't take a computer in the bath. Well you can but you really shouldn't.

@BumpyBoo: I have definitely weighed the risks on occasion but have nearly always decided that NOT getting electrocuted in the bath is probably a better choice than finding out what happens to Rocket Racoon in issue 4.

Haha yes! Although with some titles, I think it would enhance the experience :P

Is this up to date? Did you ever get any of the new Maxx run? Please don't inter anything from these suspicious questions.
