    I'm suddenly poor again. If someone wants to drive to my house for a box of my trades, they're welcome to it. However, I can't afford to ship one out this year, so I'm out.

    i'm in but i'm confused. what's considered a self contained story?

    i sent starman vol.1 last year, would that not be considered acceptable now?

    i'll update the list of trades i own in a while.

    Self-contained probably just means that the book doesn't end in the middle of an arc. Starman Volume 1 doesn't end with Jack Knight dangling off the edge of a cliff, so it should be cool.

    This is pretty much it, although I do think it's cooler to find some more self-contained stories than continuous volumes.

    I guess an example would be like, JLA: Tower of Babel is fine since the whole story is in the one trade even though it's part of a series, while Y: The Last Man Vol. 1 is not fine because it ends on a cliffhanger.

    Does that make sense?

    Does the Y: hardcover end on a cliffhanger?

    probably, since almost every issue ended on one

    I mean, it is a BKV comic

    What if I include my own ending so my Spoilee can enjoy a BKV book, but still get that all-important sense of closure?

    I'm thinking about signing up but this self contained thing has scared me off. I'm ok if someone got me Y Vol 1 but I could see not doing something like issue 3 (of 6)

    I much prefer the idea of a self contained story over the previous minimum of a single issue. My Secret Whatevers have gotten me awesome self contained trades in the past, things I otherwise may never have read, and that was great.

    I'm looking forward to stalking the shit out of whoever I get this year, with a goal of getting them something I think they'd like but wouldn't think to buy for themselves. Not sure if I can pull it off (my own knowledge of cool alternative stuff is a bit shallow) but I'm going to give it a crack!

    I sent an email yesterday for this, so I'm assuming Spoiler just hasn't quite gotten around to checking them yet.

    As for the self contained story, if anyone is too worried about not having one, just pick out whatever else you want to send, and if you're still unsure if anything "counts" just go to your local comic shop, go to the bargain bin, and pick up some cheap old issue of something that isn't part of a bigger story. There, problem solved.

    It doesn't JUST have to be a self-contained story, but there needs to be at least one.

    I think it's a lot more fun to give a friend a complete story than just leave them hanging.

    Look, whoever it ends up being, just buy them the Annotated Mantooth. It's self-contained, it's excellent, and no one in the world (except me and Bale, who was my Secret Slo-Boee last year) has it because everyone in the world is dumb. Oh, and they are guaranteed to love it (unless they are dumb) (which they probably are).
