Always loved comics, never liked the idea of buying them. But recently I broke down and began to read. I've read through quite a bit of Ultimate Spider-Man (Up to issue 102), Spider-Man: Reign, Amazing Spider-Man: Civil War (Dear God I love Spider-Man, if it weren't obvious), Batman: Hush (These two books were wonderful, a favorite of mine), and Civil War.
Obviously I'm deep into Marvel (Not just Spider-Man... But especially Spider-Man.), but Batman is always an option for me. So, my question to you, dear PAers, is where should I go from here? I'd prefer to keep purchases limited to TPB, because I don't want a bunch of single issues lying around and would like to have a complete (Or as close as it comes) arc contained in the pages.
I've been looking at the X-Men: First Class books, and perhaps other Civil War books such as New Avengers or X-Men. House of M seems to be a good purchase as well. And, are the Runaways good?
So, long story short, I'd like some really good TPB since I'm limited on money. Given what I've read and am interested in, what should I go for?
