Comics I've Read: 2012

These are the comics I read in 2012, listed in order of first reading of the year, some may have multiple dates listed, some are read for the first time, others for the tenth. Some are from decades ago, some read as they came out. I will always list the items I read in the original published form when possible. So if I read a trade, I would list the issues collected UNLESS the trade contains original story material in which case it will get the sole credit or if it's an anthology and the stories are from other books but don't constitute having read that entire work but just a portion of it, I will credit it in the form I read.

24 Hour Periods Over the Course of Which No Comics Were Read

  • 01/13 (lay in bed for thirteen hours...it wasn't a good day)
  • 01/19 (let's just chalk it up to another bad day, mmkay?)
  • 01/21 (recovering from a bad week? this is happening too often...)
  • 01/23 (perhaps the problem is that I do not live a conventional "day" but choose to record it as such)
  • 02/18 (worked for a third of the day, slept for half of it and in between that got my largest tattoo to-date, no regrets about not reading any comics, I chalk this day up to a success)
  • 02/19 (it's funny, after finally getting an actual break from work, I find myself too relaxed to catch up on all my comics-reading)
  • 02/21 (not even sure what happened here, presumably the same as above)
  • 02/24 (I guess I need one day a month where all I do is sleep?)
  • 03/02 (spent a couple hours watching Dave Chappelle stand-up instead, oh the laughs I had, no regrets here)
  • 03/14 (apparently when you can't afford to eat, your body demands you sleep instead)
  • 03/18 (not sure what happened here, must have forgotten)
  • 03/24 (one of those days where you work, then you get a tattoo and then just sleep...)
  • 03/28 (too much sleep is probably unhealthy but I'm too tired to care)
  • 04/05 (slept for a whole lot to make up for not sleeping the previous night)
  • 04/11 (I was distracted by a lady...)
  • 04/12 (...for two consecutive days)
  • 04/17 (was not in a good place)
  • 04/19 (love is a burning thing)
  • 04/20 (and it makes a fiery ring)
  • 04/21 (and holy crap I didn't even notice I hadn't read a comic in three days)
  • 05/02 (so sick of the hobos...)
  • 05/12 (sick)
  • 05/13 (and tired)
  • 05/14 (and sicker)
  • 05/15 (and tireder still)
  • 05/18 (sometimes you go to fall down to get back up, or something

Cool list, STRANGER.

Going for the most comics read in one year?

Good idea for a list and: Great list!

@PowerHerc: nah, I plan to make a list each year, I regret not doing this for previous years as I'd like a reference to point to see what comics I read in what years...I've definitely read more comics in previous years then I'm going to this year at this rate, too much going on in real life this year to dedicate record-breaking time to comics :P
