Your opinion? Better: AA: Romance or Andromeda TPB?

Post by Oxmyx »

I'm thinking of buying one of those, but probably not both at the moment. I've read AA In the Bag. Obviously the next sequence is Romance Road Trips but I don't like Faith very much.

Just looking for educated opinions
I've been looking everywhere for the ultra-rare Turok vs Blister issue. Anybody able to help me out?

Nah, you don't wanna skip the 2nd trade and only read the 3rd one.

The Faith story is a one-shot only and it's a quite funny. The rest of the 2nd trade isn't less funny as the boys meet GUB GUB and he isn't even the weirdest of the newly introduced characters. Oh well, let me take that back. GUB GUB is as weird as it gets. Also, as cute as it gets.

Last not least Andromeda first appearance is in the last issue collected in the 2nd trade. It's a brief appearance but you don't wanna miss it.

I made the choice to go Unity Vol 1 then 3, 4 (skipping Webnet) and didn't feel like I suffered much from it.

That's in no way saying you are wrong, just that I've done this before. And actually my VH1 reading has been so monumentally screwed up it's not a foreign idea

It's not about the skipping and suffering (story wise). It's about missing lots of fun stuff. Those people in Podunk are nuts. :lol:

IMHO the first arc is the least interesting here.

Are you talking the first part of AA Romace or AA In the Bag or AA Michaelangelo Code?

The first arc of The Adventures of A&A => "In the Bag"

Just looking for educated opinions
1. Faith is only in one issue, and that issue is the best issue of the entire A+A series.
2. Clowntown, or whatever the *SQUEE* it's called, sucks.
3. The Andromeda arc is the strongest arc of the bunch (which isn't saying much).
