I have never read Next Men before, but I just found the Next Men: Parallel trade at a LCS and plan to read it tonight. I'm very excited to have what is for me "fresh" Byrne characters and stories.

newkadia.com has good prices on most of the individual issues as well. the
trades can be harder to track down. i paid upwards of $30 for a copy of the
second volume last year.

I got 25% off because this copy was second hand and has some wear on the spine and a crease in the corner but I couldn't care less, I've been wanting to read Next Men forever it seems.

What's funny is that I had a spare copy lying around for a couple years. I put it up on eBay 2 or 3 times before it finally sold at around cover price!

As much as I understand your enthusiasm and envy the fact that you are getting to enjoy these stories for the first time, I strongly urge you to seek out a copy of the first trade before leaping into volume two (there are a couple of VERY reasonable offers on eBay right now I believe).  Next Men is very much one single, highly complex, constantly evolving story.

 If at all possible though, you must track down the single issues...JB's editorials and the letters columns were at least half the fun of any given JBNM comic!

All the NEXT MEN stuff will be coming from IDW in big, honkin' black and
white "phonebooks" in the New Year. Don't have a more precise schedule
than that, but when I know, you'll know.

JB, is it too much to hope that the rest (as in the ending) of the Next Men saga might finally find a home at IDW?


edited to clarify

I'll be buying copies for myself, plus all my friends and family then. Thanks! And I'll keep my fingers crossed as well.
