Walking Dead and Mark Waid's Daredevil for me. :) The only issue is that now I'm caught up on both so I have to wait. xD

Snyder's Batman.

Supergirl. I enjoy her New 52 run but can't afford another pull list title. So TPBs is an economic way for me to stay up and up. Lately I've been getting Astounding Wolf-Man in trades as well.

Batman The Long Halloween by Jeph Loeb, Court of the Owls and The Black Mirror by Scott Snyder, and any Batman story written by Grant Morrison.

Anything i read DC except Batman is typically in trade because Marvel is putting out such better comics i'm buying like over 10 comics from them a week and at DC i'm only picking up their Batman stuff and weekly series one of which is already getting picked up because it's Batman. So i mostly read DC in trade because Marvel is putting out too good of content to wait.

But my favorite comic to read in trade is The Walking Dead. It's such a slow story but it's still amazing and you want to keep reading and reading until you force yourself to stop reading before you finishe the trade in one day. They give you so many twist and turns that you want to keep reading so that's why trade is good for TWD but that and there are literally issues where nothing happens because like i said the comic is slow. Treats itself like a movie where you will have 5 mintues of straight dialogue on the same topic. I haven't read anymore of the Compendium 2 since TWD season finale because i don't want to finish it when Compendium 3 is like a year or two away.

The Walking Dead and Y: The Last Man are the only trades I have done. Any other book I read I try to do with single issues.

Any comic that is not from Marvel or DC aka any non- superhero comics.

Wonder Woman I love the series I just feel like it's to slow of a burn to read monthly.

TPB's are not good for publishers, writers, illustrators or readers.

When a book goes into trade the comic publisher has to pay a book publisher and immediately you are supporting everyone less.

Trades restrict writers into arcs parallel to how the trades are released. We'll never see a 5 or 7 issue arc on Saga for example.

Trades often omit covers, denying the reader of those beautiful pages and also preventing illustrators from that added revenue.

Cancelations are decided by the issue sales and not the trades (which often come out too late), so if you want to keep that book ongoing you must buy issue to issue.

Lastly trades are creating sensitive spoilerphobes. If you don't want to know what happens in Walking Dead, you have to read that book the week it comes out. The onus of the spoil is on the spoilee, not the spoiler. It is your responsibility to catch up, not my responsibility to keep track of how far everyone is in every series.

Birds of Prey. My library had all the trades. I checked them all out and burned through them in a few days.

All the INVINCIBLEs! (except 99-105. Had to get the floppies for that) and I read all the walking deads up to were we are at in the show. Dont want to spoil everything

Brian Bendis' and Ed Brubakers' Daredevil! Heck, almost everything by those two, I like better in trade!

I enjoy reading anything in trades that I like to read, however, part of it for an old timer like me is the collection of singles and making sure I get that story asap when it releases. Rereading a classic series is always nice in trade. I'll say Alan Moore swamp thing.
