I'm still waiting for Peter David's Aquaman to be collected in trade format.

For Superman, or just more trades in general?

Either way, more trades are always good.

DC sucks at collecting trades. So many damn ongoings of popular characters and half of Vertigo are uncollected.

@Z3RO180: Yep. They haven't even released it (complete) in Comixology. F*** their goddamn Lil' Gotham BS, I want my Aquaman.

Since I've gotten a tablet, comixology has effectively made getting trades a non-issue for me. Not always as good of a deal, but it's nice to have most everything available and occasionally there's some good sales.

Storage is an issue for me so trades are pretty much the only thing I buy. It is especially frustrating because most of my favorite characters are from DC so waiting forever to get the next trade sucks. I should also note that I have never really been a fan of buying comics online. I prefer to have a physical copy.

@Reignmaker: see on a tablet do you get the whole page to read from cause i have the app on my phone and you get to read each panel.

@Z3RO180: So far I have only gotten the free previews on my ipod. Otherwise I don't have anything digital. I have thought about buying the new issues online monthly and when the trade comes out picking it up for my collection but that's a lot of money. haha.

Well, I view them on my 10-inch ipad. So I can easily read it page-by-page - which is my preferred method. I will say it may seem slightly small when you're viewing a double-page spread but it's not bad and can still be read without straining your eyes. Plus it's all in HD, so everything looks vibrant and is very sharp. The option to zoom in or read panel-by-panel is there too.

I'll admit it's not the traditional experience, but I'm not in the position where I can regularly go to a comic shop. I'm also pretty sure my wife would get annoyed at me if I had a bunch of issues or trade paper backs laying around. :P
