    Thanks guys, he was the main guy i went for so I was after something a bit different and I think he was a great character.

    Can you spot the error ? Not sure if he did on purpose or as we were short of time and I never noticed till I got home.

    Volume 1 has gone down to £3.99 on Amazon so I've finally taken the plunge and ordered it along with volume 2. :thumbsup:
    I've been loving the TV series and really wanted to see how these compare as despite being a big reader I've never looked at graphic novels before.
    Volume 2 was more expensive at £7, but hopefully the prices go up and down a bit on these and I can catch the later ones as they get cheaper.
    Got the whole series in my wish list at the moment and I'll keep checking the prices regularly.

    Oh my god, these are very addictive! As soon as you get to the end of one you want to start the next, but I've only got 1 to 4 and can't afford any more until the end of the week!
    Really good though and it's great reading the stories as they were written and comparing them to the TV series.

    Pace yourself.....:D

    I bought two a month roughly, and when I bought them, would re-read the previous one before starting the new ones and spread this over a couple of days.

    Otherwise, you will catch up like some of us waiting of vol 16, which must be a June? release date...unless you start buying the comics each month that is.

    Haha, yeah, going to pace myself now. I ordered the next few off eBay this morning as I had some funds in Paypal so I'll read the first four again when they're on their way. :)

    Must remember not to read them before going to sleep though, they make for some particularly bizarre zombie dreams and don't encourage a good nights rest! :laugh:

    Number 100 out today, FP opened at 9am for the rush. I think I will pick up a copy of the Cromium edition if I can, or maybe the Frank Quietly cover.

    Anyone else?

    Edit: And all the comics on Comixology for those of you reading this on the iPad are in the sale until the 15th. The iPad GN are £2.99ea and they have all 16 in 'print'. Bargin!

    Is anyone able to let me know where we're at with these? I was reading the ones that are labelled as volumes so I think these are up to around number 16 or 17? These issues are separate and smaller, is that right? Issues are over 100 now?
    Sorry, if I should know this, but I was buying them in paper form from amazon, but I'm now getting them in digital form on my iPad from comixology. Just want to make sure I get the right ones and don't miss the latest ones.
