    The problem with 'trade waiters' is that if not enough people buy the series it lowers the chance of becoming a trade. I'll admit I've done it with a few books, Spider and Kato:Origins to name a couple. And it some times seems tht writers are writing with an eye toward the TPB and not the regular series.
    I try to meet halfway; I get the books digitally (usually discounted) then buy the trade for a hard copy, assuming I enjoyed the book enough to warrant what is basically a double purchase.

    I have a cottage at which we don't have an internet connection so I like being able to choose my reading format.

    With the exception of some titles aimed at younger readers, it pretty much seems to be industry standard. A title has to perform pretty poorly to NOT get a trade collection. Even Green Hornet Strikes! got a trade collection once the long-delayed final issue was published. In another instance, Dragonsbane did not, after its long-delayed final issue. There's been no solicitation (unless it's in February's Previews) for an Owl TPB yet either, but I feel pretty sure it'll happen, if only because it's PSP-related. No trades for Peter Cannon or Thun'da, either. But it seems like about 80-90% of DE titles do get one, regardless of whether it's a mini or ongoing series. At Marvel, DC, Dark Horse and Image, it's closer to 100%.

    I don't do digital, but I buy the single issues, and like you "assuming etc." That usually works out for Dynamite titles something like 50-60%. I can always sell the single issues off later, unless decide to keep them just for the covers.
