I've been delving more and more into Vertigo comics lately as opposed to DC proper, and I am generally enjoying this stuff better than what the main company puts out.
Anyway, I decided to get into Hellblazer. I got the novel 'Subterranean' by John Shirley and thought it was a great story, so I took the next logical step. I had a crapload of giftcards from Christmas, so I ordered the first trade 'Original Sins' online. It'll come here...eventually. And if I don't like it, it's not really my money, so no skin off my back.
But I was reading into the trades, and they're supposed to be collected incompletely. The first trade in particular is supposed to have a cliffhanger that is not resolved in collected form. And the list on Wikipedia shows some notable gaps here and there.
So just wondering, is it still good to get? As in, will the lack of those issues make any difference in how the story is told? Because I can only imagine that those uncollected books are at best hard to find in most backissue bins in the LCS.
I imagine it still is, and that the responses I get here will be more than likely positive, but humour me. :D
