Every month I spent arround 25-40$ for comic books.

I am actually collecting: Justice League, Deathstroke, (Pre-Ordered) Fear Itself: The Fearless, Uncany x-men, Wolverine and the X-men and buy One or two HC or TPB a month. Especially Daniel Way's Deadpool when it is coming out.

So what are you investing in Comics? And what titles are you collecting?

I spend 21.40 euros on my ongoings (Justice League, The Flash, Action Comics, Batman, Green Lantern, Stormwatch) and I may spend 20-30 euros on a TPB if I find something really good. I bought All Star Superman yesterday and last month I bought Batman: Hush.

I generally spend 30 bucks a week on comics.. which is like $120 a month. wow, never thought about it like that..yikes. ive got a disposable income, im gonna be screwed when i actually have to cut back on my comic book addiction when i have to pay real rent and not just to help out my parents.

Pull list includes: Uncanny X-Force, Uncanny X-Men, X-Men: Legacy, X-Men, the Punisher, Daredevil, Moon-Knight, Amazing Spiderman, the Spider-Island crossovers, FF, Vengeance, Daken: Dark Wolverine, Venom, Secret Avengers, X-23, Haunt, and I'm about to start collecting the Hulk once it's first issue comes out next week. Looks like Ive got all sides of the Marvel universe covered (excluding Image's Haunt)... I rarely pick up a DC comic, and 90% of the time it's Batman.

$10 dollars (in the best month) or $25, if there is a new graphic novel, most of the time I just buy 1 or 3 issues per month...

#15 Posted by The_Tree (7930 posts) - - Show Bio

$40-ish on an average, according to statistics I barely remember...
#17 Posted by _Cain_ (23659 posts) - - Show Bio

$15-20 dollars

#18 Posted by Nikoleta (14 posts) - - Show Bio

On average I spend about $400 on new books every month and then about another $100 buying back issues and if someone is selling a nice lot I want I'll spend another $100. So usually I spend $500 and sometimes $600-$700. I very rarely buy trades and when I do it's always because they're on sale so it's not factored into my budget.

I usually also get a figure or a statue of some kind once a month.

And then I'll also spend about $20 a month on supplies (extra boards/bags, boxes)

I keep saying I'm going to cut back to about $60 a week. It happens some weeks. But then I think "Oh, I've saved some money! Hey, look! A statue!" And then something new comes out or I suddenly become very interested in a title I wasn't into before.

$200 is my standard limit, although I made a temporary exception to that which is becoming a not so temporary extension.

The worst part is that I'm not planning to trim anything for a while, and am actually considering more.

In August, I probably spent $200+ on graphic novels. In September I purchased $90 worth of comic books, and this month I'll probably have halved that to $40. I'll probably stick with a $40 budget for comics for a few months.

#21 Posted by MethodMan008 (74 posts) - - Show Bio

to much.. every since I got an iPad I read SO MANY DC books... they are killing it with sales and stuff.. Marvel not to much..

#22 Posted by NX (307 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't keep up. It all depends on the comics,I don't buy em every week or Month.

#23 Posted by Halle Romanova (499 posts) - - Show Bio

Currently...anywhere from 100-200 bucks. But that's including the fact that last month I bought all 52 DCnU issues, as well as a bunch of Marvel stuff. That's also taking into account trades and $1 back issues.

#24 Posted by RScottH08 (249 posts) - - Show Bio

Idk, depends, the only place in my town with comics kinda sux, so not exactly the best selection, so sometimes i end up having to order my monthlies online. So prob about 20 without have to use the net, maybe more if they manage to get some good trades or graphic novels.

$10-$20 on average, though that average varies wildly. Not currently picking any books up, but starting either November or December, I'm going to be picking up JLA, JLD, Swamp Thing, Batman, Detective Comics(possibly), Ult. Hawkeye, Ult. X-Men, Invincible Iron Man #509, maybe Animal Man(not sure if it's any good yet), Deathstroke, Nightwing, Men of War, Batwoman, All Star Western, Green Lantern, Grifter, Aquaman, maybe The Fury of Firestorm, and New Guardians. So my monthly average is going to double most likely.

£30 a month, once I hit that magic number... I have to find other "means" of reading, as I simply cannot afford ):

The £30 is spend on, the walking dead, daredevil, ironman, ult hawkeye, uncanny x-men, some of the new 52!
