So many choices

So after visiting my LCS tonight (and finding out I don’t have my wallet, yikes!), I took a good look around. We, as comic book fans, are over stimulated with choices. There are roughly 183637 different Batman series, and about 275141 different Spider-Man books. On top of that we have graphic novels and digest books and big reprints and all kinds of goodies. To be blunt, being a comic book fan will drain your wallet. Obviously the most cost-effective way of collecting books is by getting graphic novels. They take up less space and are easier to read. However I’m impatient and don’t really feel like buying graphic novels.

So what is a fan to do? I couldn’t tell you. I limit my modern buys to Batgirl, Gotham City Sirens, and Green Lantern. I will buy mini series as well as one shots if I’m so inclined. I check graphic novels out at the library (which is the best way to do it), and I only buy big commemorative books of platinum age comics, such as Bringing Up Father. 

In nothing related to this post, I might go see Star Wars for free tomorrow night.


(And yes those numbers are accurate and true.)
