With regards to Image's awesome trade pricing: Does anyone else find it extremely difficult to trade wait for Image? It's great to get a $9.99 book that's chalked full of comic-y goodness, but then the crushing realization sets in that you're going to have to wait between 6-8 months for another one. By the time the second trade comes around, I usually can no longer remember what happened in the first one, let alone that I even bought it. Anyone else have this really horrible (but not really) problem?
Otherwise, great show as always. Keep Stephanie talking and rambling. It's some of the best stuff on the show.
Currently reading comics and writing reviews for fun.

For me it depends on the series. I read Saga and East of West among others in trade, and it's great. I will usually spend the month or so before the new trade comes out going back and reading the previous stuff again to catch up and prime myself for the new stuff. Others like Low or Rat Queens I can't do in trades I like the month to month excitement.
If I buy the first trade and I forget about it, it's usually a good indicator that I wasn't that excited about it in the first place and I will get around to it when I can or sometimes not at all. Prime example for me is Manifest Destiny, grabbed the first trade and it was fun, but I haven't went back to it.

I still loathe the term trade wait. I never remember to go back and read a series unless it was something monumental. But if it is that good i just stick with the floppies. My main issue is that i hate reading trades because i can never get comfortable reading them when sitting or laying down. I can man-handle a regular issue and hold it in such ways that would make a super comic collector cringe.
