@SoA: Haha, yes I can imagine. But I guess everyone does things differently.

@SoA: Thank you :) And, yes, going digital would make things simpler, and I have thought about it, but i'm old fashioned in the sense that I like to have the solid, real object in front of me. reading off a screen just doesn't feel the same for me.
@jonEsherfey: I've read those two stories. I used The Killing Joke in my A2 English Language coursework :) Personally I preferred Batman Year One to The Dark Knight Returns but there isn't much between them. I'm moving to Leicester at the end of September to go to uni and there is apparently a really good comic shop in Leicester so getting hold of comics will become a lot easier.
@Twentyfive: I love Batman as a character, so I figured it would be a good place to start. The same with the X-men and Spiderman, and I have about 40 years of storyline to catch up on for each so I figured that would keep me busy for a while. I have one DMZ comic, which is pretty good so I might pursue those as well.
@JediXMan: I keep an eye out for multiple comics reprinted as books, I have Knightfall: The broken bat and Hellblazer Original sins in that format and that seems to work well for me as I can read them all straight through.
@JSH92: I'm afraid I'm in a fairly old fashioned state of mind about things like music, books and Comics. Reading stories off a screen just feels wrong and I hate it. Digital comics would be an ideal option if I didn't have OCD. I have a habit of needing to collect things I like, and it doesn't work if they're on a screen :(
I haven't been reading comics for very long at all and the record shop near me was selling a random pile of comics a while back so I picked up a couple of the uncanny X-men ones, can't remember what the issue numbers are though, and they're pretty good. That's about as much help as I can be on this front.
