Default Saga or ToT???

That's the question. I've only enough "spare" $$$ to buy all the back issues of one of these titles. And I'm intrigued by both. I've read what reviews and preview issues I can. But still hard to decide.

So I'm asking you all, what's the "stronger" title.

I like the art and story(sci-fi meets fantasy) of saga. But with ToT I'm worried I'll get bored. It's just a series of heists with the issues that causes for him correct?

Whichever title gets the most "reccomends" I'll buy.

Thanks in advance all!

I assume you are looking to buy for personal collection and not to flip based on what you said. If thats so, why not pick up either the trades paper backs since its cheaper to do that way and read both? They are about 9 dollars each. Or another option is pick up Image firsts, they reprinted all of the #1 issues and they cost one dollar.

If you really want to pick up a collection I prefer Saga however thief of thieves has a TV show that we will hopefully see in the future.

Correct, they're for my PC. And I don't mind trades. That's how I read The Walking Dead and any other books I'm WAY behind/or started late on. But since these are some what new and singles are easy to track, I prefer to go that route. The collector in me wants 1st print singles. Thanks for the input

Dont rule out manhattan projects! Also another great image title. I say hit your LCS and buy image 1st's, pick up all 3 and read the first issues. See what you like best

Excellent advice, and don't forget Revival! It's been great so far.

Don't rule out Think Tank either.

If this is for personal collection then I'd say saga. The art and story are so beautiful. If you are flipping on potential to be a TV show then grab TOT. The pilot is with AMC right now, so we'll see what happens.

With that said... the early Saga issues are starting to increase in value. The print runs for the first arc were in the 30,000s but #7 and 8 are more like mid 40s I believe. More people are coming on board.

Make sure to get in on Happy and Clone while they're just over cover price too. Not sure why, but the Robots having TV's for heads in Saga bothers me, I don't quite understand their characters, that holds me back a little. I haven't gotten into ToT yet, I'll probably pick up the TPB.
