Default Books of Magic

So, they've started to publish the Books of Magic here in Finland too (altough with a stupid Magic Fantasy title). One local issue seems to cover two original issues. I've read the first TPB and I recall that it covered the first four issues.
So I'm asking, what's the series like after the first TPB. Is it any good? Is it as good as the start? Should I spend five and a half euros for an issue? Should I trust any of your answers?

Thanks D!

Well, I read an excellent one which had Death of the Endless in it (it was the last of a set of four), but the preceding three chapters were pretty dull. Basically it's the bit with the manticore and faerie, etc.

Another random issue I stumbled across involved John Constantine and a trip forward through time, which was extremely nicely done, IMO. You can see where Harry Potter was lifted from in places, too... the likeness was so close, DC considered legal action.

So, from what I've seen, it's a mixed bag, occasionally mediocre but never dire.
