@Mekboy: I think that the $18 ones are the older bunch. I don't know. Still quite new to comics.

There is indeed a price cut for purchasing it digitally. However, I don't see how digital comics are even interesting. I'm pretty sure digital comics would only cost me $3.60 in my currency since the conversion rate from USD to SGD is just 1.2. Anyway, is $18 dollars a lot for trades? Could anyone introduce me on methods of keeping track of trades cause I don't see how I can follow comic continuity with a 3month minimum lag?

I'm having dilemmas on cutting on my pull list. The titles in my pull list currently are Green Lantern, Green Lantern New Guardians, Batman, Detective Comics, Teen Titans, Justice League, Stormwatch, Aquaman , Action Comics and Suicide Squad. Also, I'm looking at wolverine and the x-men after reading schism. The problem is, I love them all. Which should I cut and why? And is it wise to pick up wolverine and the x-men?

cutting JLAI, Superman, Supergirl, LegionLost, LoSH and superboy. Considering to cut Stormwatch if # 3 isn't up to expectations. I just can't spend so much on comics anymore. Too much money involved.

I don't know. I'm living outside of US and comic books costs like a minimum of $5.10 bag and boarded in Singaporean currency with 2.99USD cover price. I just started reading comics this year and so far, I've been doubting the purchases I'm making even if I still do enjoy reading. I don't know, spending 15cents per page just seems like a ridiculous amount to pay. So, anyone have got any good tips on saving money on comics or whether I should stop buying comics or not?

If I'm not mistaken, the legion plastic ring similar to that of the blackest night rings would be available later this month with the release of Legion: Secret Origins.

Say if I only know barely 1/10 of the mutants in the X-universe, will I still be able to keep up if I randomly select a title after regenesis?

Yes. That's how everyone has to start...somewhere :)

Trust me, you'll meet new characters, get to learn who they are and decide for yourself who you like or don't like. And filling in the blanks is half the fun :)

Seems fun! Ahaha. I look forward to getting my X books. Thanks! Will probably be following uncanny X-men after the renumbering I guess.

What confused you specifically, almost everything that could be put in question was explained very explicitly through expository dialogue.

I don't get Hawksmoor's powers.City manipulation? What's that all about? And why were they on the Himalayas looking for a large sized worm?

So, after Schism and Regenesis, there's 8 different x titles. How many of the eight am I supposed to follow? Say, if I read wolverine and the x-men only, will I still understand the x-men continuity? Sorry, I'm kind of new.
