To clarify we aren't talking about manga here. We are talking about Western styles of comics. So who collects? What do you collect? How long have you been a collector?

I personally didn't get into comics until after I began enjoying manga. There haven't been too many things that have caught my eye but The End: Wolverine series certainly has. Thats all I have at the moment, but I am looking at branching out into other things.

What about the rest of you?

I'm not much of a comic nut, outside of TINTIN. The last comic I read was a trade paperback of WATCHMEN that I bought for cheap (it had a bent back cover).

It's simply one of the greatest things I've ever read in my life.

I have the JTHM and Squee strades, as well as I Feel Sick issues 1 and 2. I'm also gradually collecting the trades for Tank Girl and Crimson. Oh, and most issues of Platinum Grit except for, I think, issue 7. Zedstar put me on to ALL of those.

Other than that, nothing really. As a young teen i used to collect Star Wars comics, the Mara Jade: Emperor's Hand set was a pretty kickass story.

I used to collect heaps of titles a few years back, before Marvel starting going down hill. I collected Fantastic 4, Deadpool, Mutant X, all of the X-Men comics, Amazing Spiderman, Peter Parker Spiderman and a few others I can't remember.
At the moment I'm getting Punisher: Born. Comics have gotten too expensive and slow paced for my likings.
Although as mentioned below, I encourage anyone to pick up a copy of Watchmen. Its probably the best comic book ever written.

I have every Simpsons Comic till number 40.

Ironically that was the month that I got a job and could afford to buy comics.

I'm slowly getting all the Sin City books I can, because Sin City is just pure Hardcore comics.

I used to collect the sonic comics that was produced by archie comics. But ive stopped because i dont like the new approach. Also the quality of the artwork has dropped considerably since i last bought one. The best part was the End Game mini series. A really good mini series. Very Happy

2000 AD and all its related magazines past and present (Megazine, Best of, Judge Dredd monthly etc)
Started in 1988, so into my 16th year of collecting (800 + progs). Don't enjoy as much as I used to - Its only Dredd and inertia which keep me collecting at the moment.

I used to collect Spiderman comics and obtained well over a hundred issues in the years that I bought them. Then the stories became stale and at that stage my income was high enough that I could afford videos and then DVDs.

X-Men is really the only American comic I read reguarly, with the occasional Spider-Man. I do try and pick up as many Dreamwave comics as possible (Street Fighter, MegaMan, Transformers), though.

I prefer to just buy the graphic novels. It's easier and works out being cheaper, for me. Although when Astonishing X-Men (VOl. 3) is first released in May I'll be picking that up: Joss and Whedon and John Cassidy? Oh yes!

Anyone collect Image comics? Don't know what the general concencus is (I've heard ONE negative comment about them), but I find they bring out the most interesting, dark and pretty comics out there.

I used to (until I ran out of money, and moved to Japan) collect Out There, Last Shot, Violent Messiahs, Transmetropolitan, Lenore (LENORE!), JTHM; aaand a few other tie-ins, Star Wars mini series, and many, many Aliens and Aliens vs. comics. If the story was dark enough and most pretty (I really went for clean or defined artwork) I prolly got it from Image. Not to mention the thousand other independant comics out there that didn't last a day, but were really good IMO.

Lenore rocks. That and Transmet were prolly my favourites.

About 6-7 years ago I use to collect Spider-Man, but then there was a huge price jump where I use to buy them from so I stopped. The "Return of the Green Goblin" story arc was incredible though and I was surprised that I felt sad when Ben Reily died.

Though depending on how good Hellboy (the movie) is I might start collecting that.

I've never really bought comics. I've always wanted to get X-men comics but wanted to start from the beginning. Well I can do that now, the other week I saw these Marvel Essental's books. I think thats what it's called. Five volumes worth of X-men up to issue 200 or so. I'm gonna buy them, $30 each.
I also want to buy the new Street Fighter comics, I have the scans and they are really good.

Got into comics via anime/manga (and the X-Men cartoon of the early 90s), dropped out for several years, then came back a couple of years ago. Favourites include Knights of the Dinner Table, Birds of Prey, Abadazad, and Legion. I collect a lot of others as well.

I don't read comics, except The Phantom on occaision, and I am firmly of the belief that the only good "comics" come from Japan.

Although, I do like Nodwick, Knights of the Dinner Table, What's New With Phil and Dixie, and that other one that's in Dragon Magazine (I can't remember what it's called:cry).

I read a lot of Manga, but when it comes to actual comics, mainly all of the multiple Transformer series that are available... There are a few now, and I haven't bought them for a couple of months. I'm in it mainly for the amazing artwork... Brilliant stuff.

Well, I did have that attitude for a while, and I'm still primarily a manga fan, but in the last couple of years or so I reassessed it and decided it was a silly attitude to have, and there is a lot of enjoyable American-created material. Admittedly, the fact that I like the superhero genre helps, and I think the biggest weakness of American comics in attracting more of an audience is the dominance of that particular genre.

Yes, it does. I seriously dislike the american fixation on superheroes.

[gross generalisation] It further demonstrates that no-one in their society could actually be bothered to do something to help those in need. The just rely on "someone else" to do it for them. [/gross generalisation]

I used to collect comics. Ok, I still have boxes and boxes of them in the back room and the garage. Mostly Marvel, some Image, DC and others.

Gave up when just wasn't finding the stories of interest anymore. If I remember correctly, I think I spent about $15,000 over the years buying them.

I just moved, and those boxes are heavy suckers!

The Essential Books that Marvel release are in black and white. hence the cheepness. Thought you'd like to know. It doesn't really detract much, but some of the scenes look slightly cluttered.

And the Street Fighter comics are very good.

I used to collect comic books, but stopped when I realised just how much I spending every week on them - so I went cold turkey! On top of that I was even publishing an Australian comic there for a while. It was good fun but the Australian market isn't nearly strong enough to carry its own comics industry much further than just doing it for the enjoyment of it.

Last night I read the first comic I've read in ages - Ring of Roses, a 4 issue arc from Dark Horse - excellent. I'm even thinking of entering a comic store again.... and see what's around Exclamation

Any recommendations for current series that have really good stories? Given, I also tended to read stuff like Sandman and independents.

I have a MASSIVE collection of Star Wars comics. I love the expanded universe stories. I'm not really into the Episode 1 & 2 stuff, but anything revolving around the original trilogy is great. I'm currently getting Return of the Jedi infinities. Infinities is a great series. For those who don't know, they start the story off the same way as the movie, but 1 small detail is changed & the whole story arcs in a different angle. For this one?? It is during the scene where Leia disguised as Boussh negotiates a deal with Jabba. Jabbe hits C3PO & knocks him over. The 1 thing that changes?? Jabba hits C3PO a little TOO hard & he smashes into pieces. It all changes from there.
As a kid I used to collect Fleetway comics: Buster, Whizzer & Chips, Whoopee, Monster Fun etc etc. Now I'm kinda in a revival stage of my life where I'm scouring Ebay for those comics to read again for old times sake.....

Well, in that line you'd probably enjoy "Lucifer". It basically carries on from when Lucifer left Hell in Sandman and successfully captures the...inhumaneness of Lucifer. "1602" by Gaiman is also interesting and current.

Ooh speaking of Star Wars related comics, anyone read Tag and Binks are Dead? It's not really an alternate storyline, but of two happless Rebels that intercept with the main storyline of A New Hope and Empire. Damn funny, and will leave you thinking 'OOOh so THATS how it happened!'. Laughing

It's early days yet (only the first two issues have been released) but I'm really enjoying "Abadazad". In a nutshell, "Abadazad" is the world in a series of childrens books written by Franklin O. Barrie (bonus points if you get the references), which the main character, Kate, loved as a child, before her little brother disappeared. Now a cynical teenager, Kate discovers that Abadazad is REAL, and her brother has been captured there.

I love this title for its juxtaposition of childhood innocence and adolescent angst, without going too far either way and becoming fluffy or nasty.

Oh yeah. Ima BIG comic fan.

My wife and i get:
Ultimate Spiderman
Nightwing
Robin
Spidergirl
Y The Last Man
Exiles
Superman (while Jim lee is drawing it anyway)

i get the Dreamwave G1 Transformers stuff as trades, and used to get Street Fighter, but had to let it go for budgetary reasons. Shame really, its a good series.

ive got lots of complete series of comics. Over a 1000 easily.


For a GOOD series to collect thats not superheroy: Y The last Man. everything with a Y chromosone on Earth dies except for one uy and his pet monkey. BRILLIANT series

B U M P

I started buying X-Men comics because of that whole "Reload" deal. So now I am buying the following comics:-

Astonishing X-Men
Uncanny X-Men
X-Men
New X-Men: Academy X
X-Force

I also found something much better then the Marvel Essentials range, its the Marvel Masterworks HC's. In Australia they are about $85 each, but you can import them for about $55 each. They are great because they are in full colour and currently go from issues 1-42 and then 94-132.

Lastly can anyone tell me about the Ultimate X-Men, Exiles, District X, X-Statix and Excalibur comics?
