Times are tough and comics can be expensive! We here at Major Spoilers understand that and we know that many people are trade waiters. We want to help you make the most informed buying decision concerning collected editions.

This month we asked our contributors “What one collected edition would you recommend readers pick up?” Just one. The best of November. This is what we all had to say:

 

ASHLEY’S PICKSEP140647_m
Rat Queens Vol 2 The Far Reaching Tentacles Of N’rygoth TP
Writer:
Kurtis J. Wiebe
Artist:
Roc Upchurch
Publisher:
Image Comics
Price:
$14.99
In Stores: November 12th, 2014
ORDER ON AMAZON
“I’ve loved Rat Queens from the very beginning of the series and can’t wait to have a huge chunk of it to binge-read this month! Ladies of all body types, personalities and mythical races are represented in Kurtis J. Weibe’s sword and sorcery tale that doesn’t shy away from colourful language, sexy situations and Saga-level violence. Great for Dungeons and Dragons fans or anyone into high fantasy with a bit of sauce on top!” – Ashley

 

WAYNE’S PICKSTK650163
Grandville: Noel HC
Written/Art/Cover Art by: Bryan Talbot
Publisher:
Dark Horse Comics
Price: $19.99
In Stores: November 18th, 2014
ORDER ON AMAZON
“I have enjoyed Mr. Talbot’s work for years now, and his Grandville series of hardcover graphic novels have been something very special, so I can’t wait for the next one. If you haven’t read these or his The Tale of One Bat Rat yet, you really should! Great work on all levels!” – Wayne

 

ZACH’S PICK index
Miles Morales Ultimate Spider-Man Vol 1: Revival
Writer:
Brian Michael Bendis
Artist: Dave Marquez
Publisher: Marvel Comics
Price: $17.99
In Stores: November 25th, 2014
ORDER ON AMAZON
Miles Morales is a Spider-Man character that I have truly enjoyed since he was brought into the Marvel Universe. Brian Michael Bendis’ writing combine with the stellar artists that they bring in on every issue hits me right in the sweet spot of comic loving goodness. However, I feel that the individual issues of Miles’ adventures are priced too high for my wallet when compared to the number of pages in each issue. So, if I could only pick up one trade this month it would certainly be Miles Morales Ultimate Spider-Man Vol 1.” – Zach


CHRIS’ PICK wake
Wake HC
Writer:
Scott Snyder
Artist: Sean Murphy
Publisher: Vertigo
Price: $24.99
In Stores: November 11th, 2014
ORDER ON AMAZON
“Possibly one of the best stories I read this year was Wake. It had twists that caught me off guard not once but twice. Snyder crafted an excellent genre bending sci-fi/horror/thriller story about mermaids, off all things. Sean Murphy’s art makes Wake even more stunning, making this collection well worth the purchase.” – Chris

 

MATTHEW’S PICKwicked
The Wicked + The Divine Volume 1
Writer:
Kieron Gillen
Artist: Jamie McKelvie
Publisher: Image Comics
Price: $9.99
In Stores: November 25th, 2014
ORDER ON AMAZON 
“This series is beautiful, lyrical, gorgeous and weird: Everything I want in a girl comic book. The story of 12 beings who reincarnate every 90 years and take the world by storm has a dash of superheroes, a dash of reality programming, and a big ol’ helping of “Take That” for our celebrity-obsessed media. These are the same guys (Gillen & McKelvie) who brought us ‘Phonogram’ and ‘Young Avengers’, so you know it’s going to look gorgeous and make for a challenging & fun read. Highly recommended!” – Matthew


JASON’S PICKff
Fantastic Four By Jonathan Hickman Omnibus Volume 2 HC
Writer:
Jonathan Hickman
Artist: Various
Publisher: Marvel Comics
Price: $125.00
In Stores: November 25th, 2014
ORDER ON AMAZON
“It’s 832 pages of an amazing Fantastic Four run! Of course, you need to read omnibus vol 1 of this fantastic, no pun intended, run. If you have the money then you owe it to yourself to read one of the best Fantastic Four runs ever!” – Jason

 

STEPHEN’S PICKbatmantas
The Batman Adventures Vol 1
Writer
: Kelley Pucket
Artists: Ty Templeton, Martin Pasko, Mike Parobeck
Price: $19.99
In Stores: November 11, 2014
ORDER ON AMAZON
“If you loved Batman: TAS, then you really need to dive in to the pages in this collection. The same art style by some great artists, this is nothing but page after page of fun. Interestingly, some of the very first original art pages I purchased were Mike Parobeck’s Batman: The Animated Series work. This collection comes out just before Thanksgiving, which means you have something to read while you drift off to sleep after that big Thanksgiving feast.” – Stephen
