Right now I'm reading about 10 Comics a month, a couple of them are mini-series which will end here soon and bring me back down to about 8, but I'm finding that any more then that and I have a hard time keeping track of what's going on in what story. Am I just a loser with a pee brain? Or do others have this same issue? How many comics do you read a month? Just curious, thanks!

Mine's about 7 at the moment. Mainly for money reasons though but I'm happy with the amount I get. I always get 2 tpbs a month too and I only read them on the train and stuff so I can pad them out a bit too.

Lets see

  • Captain America
  • X-Men
  • WATX
  • All New X-Men
  • JLA
  • Aquaman
  • Hawkeye
  • Wonder Woman
  • Batman
  • Avengers
  • Xtreme X-Men
  • Gambit
  • Ultimate X-Men
  • AVX consequences
  • Black Lightning and Blue Devil
  • Adventure Time
  • Avengers Academy "will be getting Arena"
  • Journey Into Mystery

I also occasionally pick up Detective comics depending on the villain so I'm getting the Ivy arc.

Also looking for some recommendations for the New 52. How is Justice League Dark? I like Zatanna and Constantine alot.

I find it easier to buy tradebacks and/or volumes.  It forces me to pick and choose unseasonable of getting random comics just because I was interested at the time.  I used to get 10 comics a month, and that is a lot to me. Now its 3 to maybe 4 (+)

Long enough to give someone a black eye. No really it's just 5 or 6 titles but it's only because I'm buying a new (used)car and paying for school but I suppose we all have our expenses.

I don't officially keep a pull list, there are certain titles I pick up on a monthly basis but a lot of times I fall behind in that format and just end up picking up the trades when they come out. I like going after comics that are already done, it's easier to keep track of then new titles that could get delayed or go on hiatus and what-not.

Yes, it's absolutely fantastic. I recommend starting with issue 9, which is when Lemire took over.

I used to do the same thing like "Most" people. but since I found out I have lack of patients for waiting for the new trade I went straight on to issues. But why tell you when I can show you.

I agree with you there. I've just expanded to 10, after going for a good while on 6-7. That and I usually buy a few tie-ins when they occur, so I'm actually getting more than just 10.

Everyone's doing a relaunch these days so I decided to do the same and relaunch my comic collecting. I was picking up WAY too many titles before and I never even read any of them so I stopped buying altogether. But now I'm starting again and I'm no longer doing pre-orders and just visiting my LCS on new release day and picking up books.

I've just started up with Uncanny Avengers, All New X-Men, and Batwoman. Once some titles end their current arcs, I'll be starting with those (i.e. Wonder Woman). I'm also interested in the Marvel NOW! so I'll be getting FF next week and likely the new Uncannies when they start up.

At my height, it was around 20 a month. Now, I haven't picked up a single issue in months (mostly been reading TPBs from the library)
