February 27, 2012 4:55 pm Well I for one will never stop buying the paper version of comics. The only collected editions of comics I buy are the ones I can't afford to buy as back issues and as for downloading comics that's just something I'm not into, I just love the feel of a comic book in my hands and as I have my own comic room to house my collection it's nice to retire there and just lose myself in my hobby. I've been collecting since the early 70's and yes over the years I've culled my collection from time to time but saying that I still have 88 boxes full of comics and I've recently started buying back issues of comics from the 70's and 80's which I've just started bagging and I must say the smell and feel of a comic that is over 30 years old just takes me back to when I was a kid. I will always stand buy the paper version of comics because if I started downloading them I'd miss out on my weekly trip to my local comic shop and I can't see myself ever not collecting,besides I think I help keep my local comic shop going as I collect 105 comics a month and spend more on other comic related items as well.
November 10, 2011 6:26 am Hi Jesse1125,to answer your question,no I never lose track of any of the stories in the comics I collect, I have a pretty good memory for remembering where each story ends and begins from comic to comic and sometimes it doe's help to have the recap page,but so far I've never had to go back and re-read the last issue of any comic to pick up where the next one starts, probably comes from reading and collecting comics since the 70's.
November 9, 2011 4:00 pm I buy on average 32 to 36 comics per week and I collect 105 ongoings per month and if I add in the mini series and one shots I average between 130 to 145 comics per month,but I can honestly say that I don't get tired or burn out from reading so many comics, I try to read all the comics I pick up weekly before the following weeks comics are out and sometimes if I do fall behind in my reading I've been know to pull an all nighter but that's always on the night before my day off, I've learned over the years to time manage my life as best I can and I'm just like everyone else to a degree I have a job,go to the gym,have a wife etc.
