That can be had right now, CGCed at 9.4, at the Buy-It-Now price of $280 on ebay. Although the book had several subsequent printings, only the first printing ($2 cover price) contains the Vampironica story. Much, much scarcer than B&V #261 & 262, but then far fewer people seem to be aware of its existence. It may not be the same Vampironica as the one that appears in her own comic book from ACP, but then you can easily make the argument that neither is the Vampironica from B&V 261-262.

Image Comics H to M

Hadrian's Wall 1-8 - A science fiction murder mystery on a spaceship.  A detective is hired for what is said to be a routine check into an accidental death.  However, it turns out to be a much bigger deal and not just because the dead guy was married to the detective's ex-wife and shot him four times years earlier.   This was a pretty decent story.

Hit-Girl 1-9 - I didn't really like the first arc that much, but I did enjoy the second arc in Canada.  The art was much better and Lemire's story was more interesting.  The third arc is off to a decent start.

Horizon 13-18 - We learn a lot more about Lincoln here and this science fiction tale is brought to a premature end since it was canceled, but they had enough time to wrap up a number of things.  I enjoyed it while it lasted.

invincible 138-144 - The End of All Things did wrap things up nicely and then we get a peak at the future.  I was on board this series from the first issue and it has been consistently entertaining.  I'm glad it went out on its own terms.

Jupiter's Legacy 2 1-5 - How do you take on a group of superhero kids who murdered the parents and now essentially rule the world?  Recruit a bunch of supervillains to take them on.  A fun series that sets up the final series next year.

Kick-Ass 1-9 - I'm actually enjoying the new Kick-Ass, a former marine sergeant trying to earn some money to provide for her family.

Kill or Be Killed 1-20 - A man tries to commit suicide, but fails and starts seeing a demon who forces him to kill at least one person a month or die.  He becomes a vigilante and targets bad people.  I've been a fan of Brubaker and Phillips since Sleeper came out 15 years ago though I enjoyed other works like Lowlife from Brubaker before that.  This series is entertaining as expected.

Kingsman The Red Diamond 1-6 - I didn't think this was as much fun as the first two series (or the movies either), but it was okay.  I liked Kwaito, the South African agent.

Lazarus X+66 1-6
Lazarus Sourcebook vol.3 Vassalovka
Lazarus 27-28 - The miniseries does a nice job giving us background on some of the other families and some of the minor  characters from the main book like Casey Solomon.  It was a fun series.  The ongoing series returned with a two parter about Jonah Carlyle and sets the stage for the next major arc.  Unfortunately, that arc, which was supposed to start in September, has not even been solicited yet.  Lazarus has been a very good series about a future world taken over by a small number of families.

Maestros 1-7 - I wasn't sure about this series after the first issue, but it grew on me and I enjoyed it.  The Maestro is a big and powerful magician who rules most of the magic realm.  He is also kind of cruel, though with a mean sense of humor.  When he and almost all of his wives and children are killed, Will's mother comes to find him and inform him that he is the new Maestro.  He had been raised on Earth and never quite fit in with the people in the magic realm and he now institutes a bunch of reforms.  This was a funny series that told a decent story, too.

Manifest Destiny 30-35 - What if the Lewis and Clark expedition found tons of weird and supernatural stuff.  Strange animal, plant life and a bunch more.  This has been a pretty strange, but enjoyable series.

I've largely gone the other way. If I can stand to wait until it's released, I prefer reading (and collecting, and owning) the trade collection. All of that bagging/boarding and (if we're talking about something older that I'm re-reading after a long time) UN-bagging or RE-bagging/boarding (depending on age) gets tedious after a while and the trades just seem much more convenient, more durable, and less susceptible to damage through routine handling. That's truer than ever of comic stories published in the last couple of decades, because the stories are being designed to fit the collected edition format.

As a side note, I'll make the observation that manga stories, whose individual chapters as anthologized in various Japanese manga periodicals (mostly weekly or bi-weekly, sometimes monthly) are basically analogous to an American floppy comic book, could be (and used to be) published first in English translation in the U.S. standard popular periodical format, but now they're going straight to collected editions of 200 or more pages, and they read much better that way. I really think U.S. comic publishing would have been much better off if it stuck to a disposable first-publication format (CHEAP! ... as MAD Magazine used to say...) instead of making an expensive, computer-colored, slick-paper 'disposable' comic that no one is ever going to dispose of, but which requires post-publication protection (in the form of bags and boards) from normal handling.
I don't use bags and boards, except on older, more valuable comics so that isn't an issue for me as much.  I do prefer the collected editions for manga.  if the U.S. publishers were to switch to that format, though, I would probably drastically decrease what I buy and just use the library for many things I wanted to read.

Well, if you are retired I guess it explains how you have so much time to read all those comics.

Given that you're saying you might check out Exorsisters in trade, I wonder (based on your reading habits of waiting months to read 5 issues or so of any given title) why you're not just getting the trade collections of all those other titles to begin with. I mean I can see it where some people just want (theoretically at least, presuming that they can find the time) to read things while they're still "fresh", and not wait on a gap of several months until the trade collection is released, but it seems like by the time you're getting around to those particular issue numbers, the TP collection must already be available or at least imminent within the next month or so. It seems like next to nothing (getting to the real fringe publishers otherwise) that isn't getting that trade collection, almost like clockwork in today's comic publishing world.
I have been reading/collecting a lot of titles since since my early teens.  It increased when I started working at a comic book store when I was 16 (in 1986) and has stayed that way even after the store closed in 2005.  I also read 100-200 books each year, though more have them have been audiobooks in recent years.
I like the individual comic format more than the trade is one of the main reasons that I stick with it.  I will often save up a bunch of issues to read early in the run, but then will read them as they come out (assuming that I have the time) after that.  I don't mind reading trades for series that I didn't buy as individual issues, but will usually just check them out of the library instead of buying them.

I remember debating picking up Exorsisters, but ultimately decided to pass based on the preview.  Since you are recommending it, I will plan on checking the trade out when it eventually is released.  Even if I was collecting it, though, I wouldn't be reading it.  My policy on many new series, especially from Image and smaller companies or miniseries, is to keep the books in a box as they are released and to read the title when it is complete or when four or five issues are out. 

As for the number of titles I have going, it is hard to say with the frequency that various titles are published.  Looking at my latest orders from DCBS and Mycomicshop (which is where I get my new comics and graphic novels), there are about 150 different ongoing or limited series, leaving out specials, annuals and so on.  There are probably another 20-30 titles or more that just didn't have an issue during that month.

When I was teaching, I would start falling behind in my reading around the end of September/beginning of October and it would get worse as the school year progressed.  When school got out in June, there would often be 800-1000 comics to get caught up on and it would take me a month or so to get caught up.  Due to a variety of circumstances, I never got caught up during the summer of 2017 so my pile this year was even bigger.  I spent time getting caught up on the manga backlog and am now getting caught up on the comics.  Since I am retired, though, I should be able to stay fairly caught up.  I get my comics during the first week or two of each month so that means each month I will have a large stack to work through, but nothing like what built up over the past 16 months.

Since I have over 300 Image comics to catch up on, I'm breaking it up a bit.   B-F to start

Barrier 1-5 - This book touches upon the barriers to understanding that are thrown up by differences in language, race, species, experience, etc.   The main characters are Liddy, a widowed young rancher near the Mexican border and Oscar, a man from Honduras who is trying to escape gang violence and reach the United States in hopes of a better life.  They get thrown together by 'circumstances'.  It was a decent series, but I wouldn't rank it near the top of my favorites from Vaughan.

Birthright 26-31 - We learn more about the Nevermind and the world of Terenos as Mike's family tries to find a way to free him from the Nevermind's influence.  This is a pretty good fantasy series and I think that it has gotten a little bit better as it has progressed.

Black Cloud 1-10 - Zelda is of the Old Blood, but has been living in the normal world in exile for quite some time.  Her return to her homeland with a spoiled young man in tow disrupts things in many ways.  Zelda has always been a good talker, but her decisions haven't had good results.  I enjoyed this series and it reached a fairly decent conclusion.

Black Magick 7-11 - Rowan Black is a police detective who also happens to be a powerful witch.  She doesn't use her powers for evil, but is hunted by a couple of groups nevertheless.  A very nice series touching upon the occult and fantasy elements.

Black Monday Murders 7-8 - A number of groups have profited for a long time through their dealings with the god Mammon.  A police detective investigating a murder and a professor uncover more info in these issues.  This series is pretty good, but comes out too infrequently like many Hickman books.

Copperhead 15-19 - The sheriff has disappeared thanks to her late sister's husband and his current girlfriend.  The mayor appoints an interim sheriff and deputy to try and find her while also protecting her son.  This science fiction western has a few interesting turns here as we find out the background of the sheriff and what brought her to the planet. I have been enjoying the series.

Descender 22-32 - The time for the battle between the robots and the UGC arrives and we find out a lot more about the Harvesters who attacked the UGC years earlier.  Tim-21 is the key to everything and all the groups want him, but he only wants to be reunited with his friend Andy.  It all comes to a conclusion here in a fast paced story that also sets the stage for the sequel, Ascender, which I am looking forward to.

The Dying and the Dead 4-6 - Another enjoyable Hickman book that comes out far too infrequently.  The story advances a bit as a group of soldiers are detailed on a special mission to Miyajima in August 1945.  Hirohito wants to live forever and plans to make a trade with the Spear of Destiny to achieve his goal.

Eclipse 9-11 - The sun changed years ago and now kills anybody who goes out there unprotected, except for a few daywalkers who are immune.  Solarity is a company that runs things now and is killing off all of these daywalkers in order to stay in power.  I've enjoyed the book so far.

Elsewhere 1-8 - Amelia Earhart fell through a bright light when she parachuted away from her failing plane and ended up..Elsewhere.  She befriends the natives, helps defeat an evil warlord, goes on an adventure to return home and finds that a lot of time has passed.  This is a decent adventure story, though I found it kind of lacking in complexity.  It was stil entertaining enough, but kind of predictable.

Eternal Empire 1-10 - The Eternal Empress has been conquering the lands of Saia for 120 years and is getting close to having the whole continent under her control.  Tair is a female slave in a snowy region of Saia who has finally had enough and makes her escape soon after having visions of a land of warmth.  Rion is a male slave from a different part of Saia who also has visions.  These visions lead to the two meeting and discovering that when they are close to each other, they gain some ability to control fire.  They only want to find a place where they can live in peace, but are drawn into trying to defeat the Empress since there will soon be no place outside of her reach.  I like Luna's art and the story was pretty decent as well.

Evolution 1-10 - I thought that this series would be a bit more science fiction, but is more in the horror genre.  A number of people are getting infected with something that can cause great changes in their body and make them look like monsters, but it may just be an advanced case of evolution hitting in a short period of time.  Throw in a mysterious group and a cult and it is a decent story, though the art style employed here is a bit muddled and can make the characters difficult to differentiate.

The Fix 9-12 - This is a fun, but crazy series.  It also comes out far too infrequently.  Corrupt cops, a brothel, a plucky dog and lots of wild humor.

I'm caught up on Dynamite now.

Classic Battlestar Galactica 0
BSG vs BSG 1-6 - I enjoyed the preview issue for the classic series and the crossover between old school and new school Galactica was pretty cool.

Doc Savage: Ring of Fire 1-4 - This was a nice miniseries with action in the Pacific.  Good art and story.  Pat Savage plays a bit larger role in this series.

Dresden Files: Dog Men 1-6 - Harry is suffering lots of rage from his recent encounters with various supernatural entities.  In this original story, one of the council members enlists his aid for a road trip to a town where a family has been attacked by creatures from the woods, but it turns out that there are two possibilities, not just one.  I liked the Dresden Files tv show and plan to read the novels some day.  The comics are fun.

Green Hornet 1-5
Green Hornet '66 Meets Will Eisner's Spirit 1-5 - The Green Hornet mini series starts with Britt missing and the newspaper in danger of a takeover.  A new Green Hornet has to step up and the action eventually shifts to other cities in the search for what happened to Britt.   In the Spirit miniseries, Spirit has been missing since the early-mid 1950s.  Britt Reid is demonstrating the Newspaper of the Future (a computer that makes predictions) at the Chicago World Expo.  The computer predicts that Spirit will resurface that night and this is the start of a battle against Kid Kraken and his crew which involves missing astronauts and more.  Both series were fun.

James Bond Black Box 1-6
James Bond The Body 1-6
James Bond Kill Chain 1-6
James Bond M, Moneypenny and Solstice one shots - All are fairly typical Bond adventures, though M and Moneypenny take center stage in their one shots.  Good stuff if you are a Bond fan.

Legenderry Red Sonja 1-5
Red Sonja 7-21 - The Legenderry series features a steam punk era Red Sonja and was pretty good.  The regular series has a time displaced Red Sonja traveling through the present day U.S. trying to find a way home.  Lots of fun.  I thought it became a bit less interesting when she got back to her own time, but it was still good.

Librarians 1-4 - Kind of pedestrian, but it was okay.

Lone Ranger 1 - The new series is off to a decent start.

Magnus 2-5
Sovereigns 0-5
Turok 1-5 - I'm not really a fan of this iteration of these characters.  Hopefully they reboot it again.

Mighty Mouse 3-5 - This was a fun miniseries where Mighty Mouse and his cartoon physics cross over into our world.

Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys: The Big Lie 1-6 - Frank Hardy has been murdered and his sons are the suspects.  While it was interesting having all the classic characters at least mentioned here like the Bobbsey Twins, Rover Boys, Tom Swift, etc., I didn't like the way most of these characters were used.  I think I would have enjoyed this series more if they had used original characters.

Project Superpowers 0-2 - So far, so good, though perhaps not quite as good as the original series.

Red Rising Sons of Ares 1-6 - Kind of a slow start, but it got better.  A knowledge of the Red Rising world is kind of needed for this.

Sherlock Holmes Vanishing Man 1-4 - A good adventure with Professor Moriarty pulling the strings.

Spirit: The Corpse Makers 1-5 - A fast paced adventure involving people going missing leading to Spirit investigating.  It was a decent series.

I have a few trades to read and then on to Image Comics which will take a while.

Hearts Beat Loud (2018) - Frank Fisher owns a record store that is about to close.  His daughter Sam is about to leave New York to attend college at UCLA.  Frank has been raising his daughter alone since the death of her mother in a cycling accident years earlier.  The two start collaborating on a few songs and Frank wants them to form a band, even though she is leaving soon.  This is a very nice comedy/drama with plenty of good father/daughter moments

I liked Jodie Whittaker as The Doctor.

WHObender.  :o

Not yet, but it probably is only a matter of time.  It doesn't matter to me as long as the stories are entertaining and the actor does a good job.

I got tired of waiting for Into the Badlands to come back from hiatus, so I went ahead and watched the first 8 episodes from season 3 that have been sitting on my dvr.  They were enjoyable, though maybe not quite as much as the first two seasons.  They do set up an interesting second half of the season.  I also liked the teases as to what happened to cause the breakdown in society.

I also watched the first episode of the new Doctor Who series.  It is only one episode, but I liked Jodie Whittaker as The Doctor.  I plan to watch the next four episodes tomorrow.  It is a short season with only 10 episodes so it will be over in another 5 weeks.

I've come to the conclusion that it must be some sort of generational thing, since large numbers of people seem to have absolutely no problem with the idea. That goes for reading comics or e-books, as well. Then again, if a video is not being displayed in its correct aspect ratio it's immediately apparent to me (and annoying to the point where I just can't watch it), but apparently what's annoying to other people that they just can't stand is an area of their screen that isn't being used where nothing but black bars appear.

But that's coming from a guy who has no idea why anyone would want to text on a phone using a tiny keyboard when they could just call (even if it's just to leave a voicemail) or email someone. People not only seem to enjoy but actually prefer texting, though.

I've gotten used to reading ebooks on my phone, though usually it is when I am waiting somewhere and it helps pass the time.  I've started texting more since I got my iPhone a few years ago, but still prefer the phone call and actual talking.  I've adapted somewhat, though, as it had become clear that some of my friends are much easier to reach via text since they tend to respond to that more than a voicemail.  I will sometimes make use of the speech to text option with my texts where I just have to tap the microphone button and then dictate my text message, making sure to read it over for any errors.

Stephen Mooney wrote and drew each of the issues for Half Past Danger and its sequel.  He did most of the covers, too.
I won't subscribe to the CBS service (or the DC service for that matter).  Discovery is coming to BluRay and DVD in a couple of weeks and a friend of mine who is getting it will let me borrow it to watch.  The same will probably happen for Titans and the other DC streaming originals eventually.  I have a Netflix subscription that I share with my niece and may give Hulu a trial some day in the distant future, but I don't like how all of these pay streaming services are popping up.  I will give the Apple one a try since it should be free for me to watch their content on my phone, though watching things on my phone is not ideal.

I'm all caught up with IDW now.

Atomic Robo The Spectre of Tomorrow 1-5
Real Science Adventures 1-6 - The Atomic Robo books have been consistently entertaining for quite a while now.  The Atomic Robo series has plenty of humor and not as much adventure this time, though Robo does have to combat and defeat a long time nemesis.  The Real Science series takes place just after WWII and has a long aerial chase by pirates trying to recover one of their planes after being taken by the Flying She-Devils.  This series fills in some of the history of Robo's world.

Back to the Future 21-25
BTTF Biff to the Future 1-6
BTTF Tales from the Time Train 1-6 - These Back to the Future series have been a lot of fun.  I think they do a decent job capturing the feel of the movies.  The Biff series explores the world created by Biff taking the Sports Almanac back to the 1950s.  The Time Train series has the professor and his family visiting the New York World's Fair in 1939.

Donald and Mickey 1-4
DuckTales 0-13
Mickey and Donald Christmas Parade 3
Uncle Scrooge 28-40 and My First Millions 1
Walt Disney's Comics & Stories 739-744
Walt Disney Showcase 1-6 - These books mostly reprint stories from Europe that have never been published in the USA (except for the DuckTales series which I think is all new).  The tone is often a bit different than the classic Ducks (and Mouse) tales, but they are usually still pretty good.  There are a lot of stories available from Europe that have never been seen here and it is nice that IDW is putting a lot of them out.

Half Past Danger 2 #1-5 - A decent sequel in the Indiana Jones vein.  I enjoyed it and would read a third series.

Judge Dredd Blessed Earth 1-8
Judge Dredd Under Siege 1-4 - Blessed Earth takes place 10 years after Mega City Zero and a thousand years after the original Judge Dredd books.  It wasn't my favorite Dredd series, but it was okay.  I liked Under Siege a lot more which deals with mutants trying to take over a residential block near the edge of Mega City One.

Orphan Black Deviations 1-6 and Crazy Science 1 - The Deviations series is a 'What if Beth didn't jump in front of the subway train' story and I thought it was pretty entertaining.  The Crazy Science series got canceled after one issue due to low sales and hopefully it will be completed some day in a trade.

Saucer State 1-6 - This series continues Vertigo's Saucer Country series from a few years ago.  The President and a few others see aliens on occasion and the question is whether the aliens are real or just the product of microwave technology.  First contact may be on the horizon.  One more series is being kickstarted soon to finish off the story.  I've enjoyed it.

Star Trek Boldly Go 10-18
Star Trek Discovery The Light of Kahless 1-4, Succession 1-4 and Annual 1
Star Trek TNG Mirror Broken 1-5 and Through the Mirror 1-6 - Boldly Go continues the adventures of the reboot Enterprise crew.  I hope that their adventures continue in comic form since this was a good series.  Light of Kahless shows how the reunification of the Klingon Empire came about and was good.  Succession is a Mirror Universe series and I didn't find it as interesting, though it wasn't bad.  Mirror Broken shows how Picard gets the newly built Enterprise and holds on to it while Through the Mirror is a crossover between the Mirror Universe Enterprise and the regular universe Enterprise.  Both series were pretty good.

Star Wars Adventures FCBD 2017 2018 1-14 Annual 1 Tales from Vader's Castle 1
Star Wars Forces of Destiny (five one shots) - The Star Wars Adventures books feature two stories per issue from throughout the Star Wars timeline.  The characters change from issue to issue except for the occasional two parter.  They tend to be lighter in nature, but are fun.  The Forces of Destiny books focus on some of the female Star Wars characters (Ahsoka, Padme, Hera, Leia, Rey, Rose, Paige) and are pretty decent stories.

Tangled the Series 1-3 - About what you would expect, but decent Disney fare.

The Highest House 1-6 - In the beginning, Moth is a young boy sold into slavery by his mother.  He is taken to one of the most important houses in the realm where he will serve the family as a roofer and later in other ways.  This is a fantasy series by Mike Carey and Peter Gross and is very well done.  It is done in magazine size which I think suits the story well.  It looks like this will be told over many miniseries and I'm looking forward to the next one.

Dynamite is next

I can't find The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina on Netflix. Is it only streaming or is it in discs you can rent?

Streaming only.  It should become available on disc eventually, but it will probably be at least a year or two.

Nobody watched The Chilling Adventures of SABRINA on Netflix?

Wow, the apathy is mind-boggling. I mean, even I'M a little curious about this one, and usually I couldn't care less about this kind of stuff.

Can't believe Tuxedo Mark isn't all over this.
I plan on watching it, but am catching up on other shows first.  It will be available on Netflix for quite some time so there is no real hurry.
