I have been a comic reader for 20 years. A few years back, I discovered hardcovers. I spent a fortune on Masterworks, Archives, etc. Couldn't get enough -- until I lost my job and had to sell most of them off.

Nowadays, I prefer to spend my extra money on rasslin tapes. But I miss comics. So what is one to do? ILL, of course. Never used it before a few months ago, but my small town library offers the service for free. So I figured I would give it a try, and I ordered the Captain America Omnibus, along with a couple of Astro City trades I hadn't gotten around to reading.

Then I read the Silver Surfer Omnibus and an Adam Strange archive.

Yesterday, I picked up the Fantastic Four Omni vol 1. I can't begin to share how much fun this has been. I'm reading some superb stuff (seriously, the Brubaker Cap is amazing, and the SS omni -- while a bit preachy at times -- was far more engaging than I expected it to be). From reading in Essentials awhile back, I already know I like the FF.

On deck to request soon:

TOMB OF DRACULA OMNI
HOWARD THE DUCK OMNI
STARMAN vol 2
Sekowsky's DIANA PRINCE: WONDER WOMAN trades
SHAZAM, PLASTIC MAN, JUSTICE LEAGUE, LOSH, and JUSTICE SOCIETY archives
JLI hardcovers

Wow, it's endless. That list doesn't even scratch the surface of what I want to read. I wonder if they have Absolutes. . .
