What age will you stop reading comics?
I honestly feel like I should stop right now. I just turned 24 last week. I feel like... I have to start focusing way more on my future than enjoying the moment.
I have said though depending on how many kids I have I might still buy comics but it depends cuz kids are expensive.

I'll stop reading comics when one of the following happens: I find another hobby that takes up my time (which actually happens rather often for me), I find no more worthwhile stories involving my favorite characters, if I exhaust myself and make myself despise what I am reading, if the comic companies do something unforgivable to my favorites, or if I get too busy that through force of habit, I stop reading them. I'm going on 24 this month and any of those things have a high chance of happening especially in the coming months when things will be getting very busy for me. So who knows? Often more than not, I never fully stop liking the stuff I like, I just have to get away from it all for a few months or years and return with a fresh perspective later.
I don't know...one can't determine the future, but I have a feeling that my comic-book tastes might shift in my older years. I mean I'll always love superheroes, but every now and then, I need a break from the constant fighting and tights and read something else.
I don't know. I might take a temporary break in my last year of university to focus on my final year and the strenuous work I'll have to do in it. But as to when I properly stop reading comics, I don't know yet. Superhero comics always have a special place but if DC and Marvel keep messing up and getting worse and worse, my tastes could shift into the indy realm of comics to perhaps leaving comics altogether. Honestly I can't say because we don't know the future and what might happen.
For me its like asking when I'll be too old for novels, of films. I may stop reading everything as regularly or as intensively as I do, but If an amazing series comes out when I'm in my 60s or whatever, who's to say I can't enjoy it.
And I don't think that superhero comics specifically are exclusive to young people, look at the most passionate people in the industry and how old they are!
