Hi Everyone.

Just wondering if anyone owns every single comic issue that a particular character has appeared in, and who has the most?

The only ones I have that I know of are Mindwarp(5) and Tanga(12). Easily beatable I imagine.

So who do you have? :)

Aside from one-shot characters, I don't think so.

I wish. Haven't been reading comics long enough. I feel like you really need to make a conscious effort and pick a less popular charater to do this. One would have to work so hard for those popular characters who appear in multiple solo titles and/or team books and crossovers. In which case it'd be more work than fun for me.

I've thought about collecting Nightwing's issues as he's been around for not too long and in which case might be doable. But there's still plenty of titles he's appeared in besides his solo title so I might never bother.

What we should really do is list popular (but not too much) characters who this might be doable for.

Anyone have suggestions?

Well, not every single appearance, but I have most appearances of Rose Wilson. All of her significant ones (where she doesn't just make a cameo), at least, even the ones from way back in the early 90's, including her first ever appearance (those took a long time to track down). That's over 100, at least.

@extremis: Yeah, I think it would only be characters with a small number of appearances that you could accidentally own all of.

I wouldn't be surprised if someone on here has all of Damian Waynes issues.

I own everything Grant Morrison has ever realeased, including old shorts. As well as all of Brandon Grahams work and ALMOST every Dave Johnson cover.

When the last issue of Savage Hawkman comes out, then I will own every issue of that series. And so far I own every issue of Flash from the New 52.

I own the whole Catwoman v3 series. Loved that series, even the worst issues are 5x better than the crap written for Catwoman now.

Mark Hazzard , 2099 (not counting that new stuff after 2099: Manifest Destiny, unfortunately missing Spidey's run in the Exiles, but I read them in trade.) and I'm sure I have one or two others I haven't pulled from there boxes for awhile.

#24 Posted by End_Boss (749 posts) - - Show Bio

Erm, I suppose the entire New 52 Batwoman run, if you count that.

#25 Posted by TifaLockhart (15122 posts) - - Show Bio

Every single appearance of Lobo.

#26 Posted by Spawn92 (296 posts) - - Show Bio

I have every appearance of some Wildstorm characters mainly because they only appeared in les than 30 issues. I have every appearance of the Planetary crew, Automatic Kafka, and most of the cast of Wildcats 3.0

............... I miss Wildstorm :(

#27 Posted by Mercy_ (92772 posts) - - Show Bio

I'd imagine it would be easier for minor or newer characters, but it would be nuts to collect every single Cap comic and appearance ever. Aside from being a colossal waste of money, I don't want to own issues I won't enjoy.

Sorry to hear that.

Glad to hear that.

The only thing I can think of is a few Star Wars characters.

#37 Edited by lykopis (10868 posts) - - Show Bio





I think Wolverine. I think.

Probably a few others as well, X-Men related.

If character specific, I could list off characters from Fables etc but that's more a series thing -- even with the 50 issue Jack spinoff. I might have every issue of a character but more because of their appearances only are as part of a team so I wouldn't necessarily say I collect the issues for the characters themselves.

I am pursuing a couple at the moment, hopefully I can get my hands on them.
