I'm similarly occupied with a family and job, so I only read what I really enjoy. If the books starts piling up, I make cuts.
I also read at night, usually before bed.
November 26, 2012 7:21 pm I'm dropping all my Marvel titles except Captain Marvel.
I'm not a Marvel NOW! hater or boycotter; I might pick up Avengers Arena.
Going to stick with my DC titles and use the extra money from my comic budget to explore other titles and publishers.
November 19, 2012 7:36 pm I'm slashing several comics to fit my personal budget.
Most 3.99 books or series with spin-offs (I feel like I have to read them all) will be cut.
I'm using Marvel NOW! as a jumping off point; I want to wait and see what's good and also look into other books.
My goal is to spend less and read what I really enjoy.

Short response: Was worried about continuity / renumbering, but makes sense, AND not a Marvel hater / boycot, just playing wait-and-see.
Long response / my CSB: Thanks, Mr. Montgomery for explaining the Marvel NOW! movement succinctly. Even when I've asked my local comic store owner about it, he wouldn't give me a straight answer; he's a great guy but a bit of curmudgeon, especially about any major changes to comic books.
Overall, I was feeling intimidated by Marvel's renumbering of several titles and had worries that I would need to be familiar with AvX or several previous story-lines in order to understand what was going on if I jumped into a new title.
Additionally, I've lost interest in several of the Marvel comics that I have been reading, so I see Marvel NOW! as an opportunity to jump off and evaluate Marvel titles. I did something similar when DC relaunched with the New 52, and some of the books that I picked up from that are among my favorites. I also intend to spend less on comic books altogether.
I might get some Marvel titles, but I plan to wait and see what's good.
November 16, 2012 5:40 pm I'm about to drop all things Marvel (the whole Marvel NOW! thing just confuses me), but I've always been a fan of Morbius.
@MisterKyleW: A black and white book would be fantastic!
