Anyone here collect comic books?

posted by doodo! on - last edited - Viewed by 483 users

I'm a collector. I'm not a freak about it. I have more than I can count in a week, but I don't have THAT many.

I just got done reading the Terminator versus Superman story. And I just started Predator versus Superman. I was thinking about buying the rest of the story, but I didn't really think the first part was that good. Anyone read through the entire story?


Anyways, feel free to share other comic books. THANKS!

  • Sure do! I don't collect single issues anymore... but I did up until about 1998 or so. Now I still buy the random hardcover or paperback collection.

    here's some of my favourites that I'd recommend to anybody!

    Mad Love (Batman)
    The Dark Knight Returns (Batman)
    Sin City: That Yellow Bastard
    Hellboy
    Bone by jeff smith (big surprise!)
    Usagi Yojimbo
    Kingdom Come (by Alex Ross)
    Shazam! and the Monster Society of Evil
    The Killing Joke (Batman)
    V For Vendetta

  • When I was growing up as a kid, I read pretty old school comics like Beano and Dandy every week, back when they used to be like 50p a comic.
    Then as I got older I didn't read comics, until the early 2000s when I got a taste for it again.
    (I did watch the 90s Marvel cartoons, so I knew the basics)

    The best comic series I have ever read, are the Evil Ernie

    And exiles comic series:

    (Both of these would have made fantastic animated series.)

    My best friend did have a thing for 2000AD for a long time.

  • I'm more of a novel guy, however I do enjoy reading Archie comics =D no matter how much the world changes, I can always count on good old fashioned riverdale to take me back to a time where you didn't have to lock your doors, everyone cared about everyone else, and young people didn't go wild every chance they got, they just hung out at the chok'lit shop and had good old fashioned fun ^_^

    I forgot to answer your question! haha... I did not read those stories, no. I was never a fan of crossovers.

    I started buying comics in 1990 right after Batman was big in the theatre. The first comics I ever bought were Ninja Turtles, Thor, and Silver Surfer.

    The first issue of Amazing Spider-Man I ever bought was #345. I still remember the cover. :)

  • Thanks for the replies every one. I should use this thread some how and post some of my oldest or favorite comics or something. I haven't taken the time to count my comics in years. I got worn out every time I started. :D

    I don't even know what I have...

    LOL THIS GUY! LOL! I like this guy...but still I keep all my comics and enjoy reading them.

  • What are comic books? I collect Graphic Novels.

    Okay, Snob Mode off.

    Me, I don't collect comics. I usually just buy the trade paperbacks of them. I got stuff like Bone, Eric Powell's The Goon (I highly recommend it), some Hellboy stuff, Mike Allred's Madman, Scud: The Disposable Assassin, Doug TenNapel comics, Invincible, Fables, and America's Best Comics stuff.

    The only DC (Non-Vertigo or ABC) and Marvel stuff I have are Kyle Baker's Plastic Man comics and Warren Ellis' Nextwave. I like DC and Marvel, but I hate too much continuity.

    Also, none of them are complete. I just buys what I finds.

    D'oh! Atomic Robo! I also have that!

    It's just that all my comics are in another place, and I can only make a list of the stuff I remember.

    I also have Transmetropolitan.

    Ahh another excellent choice! You'd probably enjoy Y:The Last Man also.

    If you enjoy the Thor mythos at all, I highly recommend getting "Loki" by Esad Ribic.
