I just started collecting comic books a little over six months ago and I'm currently following seven series;


Guardians of the Galaxy

Indestructible Hulk

Iron Man

New Avengers


Superior Spider-Man

Is this an average number of series to follow? I don't want to bite off more than I can chew.

Seven is a pretty admirable amount. I assume that is probably at the lower end of what the average comic reader does. Personally, I read between 15 and 25 series at a time, which is probably on the higher end of what is average. Then there are people who only read one or two series, and people who read upwards of 50.

I got started with just one series, New Avengers #1 back in '04 and moved up to about 5 different books pretty quickly. I was probably between 10 and 15 up until I graduated college a few years ago. Between the massive increase in Avengers titles, the New 52, and an increased income, I got up to where I am now pretty quickly. It would be nice to trim my list a bit.

Some of what I'm currently reading: New Avengers, Avengers, Young Avengers, Ultimate Spider-Man, Hawkeye, Deadpool, All New X-Men, Uncanny X-Men, Thor, FF, Green Arrow, Batman, Justice League of America, Earth 2, Animal Man, Justice League Dark, Fathom, Shadowman, Saga.

I think its intresting to read the trio's solo series and then watch them work together in Justice League.. Injustice is cause im gonna play the game, eagerly awaiting a Zatanna solo series to add else I might be putting JLA Dark on the list in the future. (My time is limited right now though)

At the moment ten. I recently dropped a few because I either wasn't enjoying them or - in the case of Superior Spider-Man - I was enjoying them but not enough to warrant buying it twice a month. I'm considering starting on a few others in their stead but for now I'm going to leave it.
