Trade or Digest?

#1 Posted by Eggimann (57 posts) - - Show Bio

I am planning on getting the first volume of this series, and i have found them, but they are in either trade paperback or Digest form. The Digest form is alot cheaper, but i am wondering, what is the big diffrence and which one is better to read?

The size difference is pretty massive. Marvel's digests are as small as manga - So if you have a collection of those, they'd fit alongside them nicely, but if you have more trades, then they'll fit better with those. I would go with the trades, myself - The reproduction of the art in the digests is much too small and the paper quality is quite poor.
