For those who have read them:
1) How many volumes are there?
2) Would you recommend them?
I am into the old super hero comics, that are recreated (Spiderman, Batman, Hulk, Fantastic Four, etc.) such as these Ultimate Spiderman books and like the idea of hard cover comic books ( a lot of comics in 1 book). So that being said, can you recommend anything?
I've read Ultimate Spiderman, and that series is awesome, the storyline is awesome, the art is awesome (some of Mark Bagley's best work).
I think you can only get the hardcovers up to a certain point (there are like 17 or more volumes).
I highly recommend them.
go to your local comic store and look around, there are likely many different volumes TBPs, (graphic novels) - I like stuff by Top Cow, Vertigo, and Marvel - with a little Image thrown in there as well.
Marvel has "Essential" TPBs, which have 40 or more issues collected into one book, you can get Spiderman, Wolverine, X-Men, Hulk, etc etc.
