Well, thanks to a tip from reader Chris, I decided to go ahead and purchase the singles I could pick up from Rann Thanagar Holy War, rather than wait for the trade. I already have the two Specials, plus with my LCS's discount this is the cheaper route. Of course, as you can see I only was able to get the last four issues, meaning that until I can find the earlier ones (or, more likely, order them from an online service), I won't be able to read the story. D'oh! Such is the trials and tribulations of comic book fandom!
