Oh boy let me add this up... 3.99x4 2.99x3 = 24.93 plus bags and boards and tax it comes out to 28.17, and I always buy more random stuff and trades. I collect:
With the New 52 out, and Marvel NOW! kicking off, I've been following a tonne of books, at least for the first arcs...It's anywhere between £15 and £28 a week in the heavier weeks...so maybe around £100 a month? think that's the first time I've thought about it...I need to slow down haha
This question is the exact reason I now make sure to pick up my pulls every week. The few times I took a few weeks off, I walked into a shockingly large bill. I have also cut back a comic or two. I'm guessing I'm around $50 a month now. Too much.
I'm in an excessive over-spending phase trying to pick out a few ongoings and catch up with them so that I can finally engage in current discussions of series without fearing spoilers (AA notwithstanding). My planned pull list is Batman, Batgirl, Red Hood & the Outlaws (unless Lobdell leaving makes it start to suck), Scarlet Spider, and X-Men (XX) and Uncanny X-Force (NOW) will join the list as they debut. I haven't worked out what those cost but that's six books, so I'm thinking 20-25 dollars a month. I'll tell you, though, between Night of the Owls and Death of the Family, these DC events are killing my nascent budget, and I imagine I'll find myself in a similar fix once Marvel NOW gets rolling. Though to be fair the DC events seem to be better-orchestrated than the Marvel ones I've run into in back issues. IDK if that's a DC/Marvel thing, or if Snyder is just a genius.
Right now I've got 31 monthlies (counting Crossed: Badlands twice since it's every 2 weeks).
I can't keep track of which ones are 2.99 and which ones are 3.99, so I figure just split the difference and call 'em all 3.50 (which would probably be on the low side since I get a lot of Avatar and IDW stuff)
Rough estimate would be around $110/month. I don't want to figure it up exactly though or my wife might discover how much I spend.
