I'm 37 years old and bought my first comics this year. I started by picking a select few #1s from DC's new 52 at a local store by chance. Now I am getting them regularly: Justice League, Detective, Batman, Batman & Robin, Action, Superman, Green Lantern, and Flash. The thing is where to store all these as the accumulate. We are already tight on space in the house and my mancave homes my home theater, LPs, guitar & amps, computer desk with 3 monitors, not to mention game and movie collector editions on display. Space is crazy limited.
I am also trying to get a crash course on comics also. So I just learned of the trade paperbacks. This may be a space saving option and money saving as well from the looks of it. Do many people just wait for the trade paperbacks? How long is the wait? Speaking of which, can anyone recommend a trade reading order for Batman?
