yes
>>
>>64597986
Yes. JLA is how I got into comics. Also how I got into Morrison. The main story of vol. 2 is one of the best stories featuring that villain ever written.
You'll want to pirate or buy DC 1,000,000 though, one of the issues (forget if it's in vol. 2 or vol. 3) is a plot-important tie-in, so it basically reads
>synopsis of DC1M

>summary of rest of DC1M

Picked up a copy of 300 today for a buck. Only issue is that the binding is nearly completely destroyed. It looks like it's all there, so I'm going to try and use some wood glue or something to rebind it. It's worked before, so it should work in this case. If not it was still just a buck.

What's that massive Star Wars book next to Dark Tower?

Also, you gotta step up your indie game. Focus less on long running series; you're missing out on a old of good one-offs.

Marvel stuff is pretty solid looking though.

If you're looking for series, I'd recommend Manhattan Projects, based on what you've got. All the zaniness of Chew but in a completely different way.

On the subject of Chew, I love - LOVE - that boo, but man those Omnivores really aren't that great looking. Glad I stuck with the trades.

Hey, to each his own, but...

Yeah, all these collections start to look the same too, especially if you go to CBR, that place is full of this autism.

/v/ fag here.

An Xbox One costs about $500 depending on some factos. Some of these shelves have like $5000 worth of stuff on them, and they probably are used less than a video-game console.

>A game is $60 has atleast 10 hours of gameplay

>Graphic Novel ranges from $10 - $100 probably takes less than 2hrs to read.


Even then, my library of video-games always hovered around 20, with me selling what I didn't like/never played on EBAY.

There's no reason to have that many comics, other than being a hoarding autistic. its a fact.
>>
>>64608097

Most video-games are like ten bucks if you wait a year. But, yeah, comparing /v/ fags to these retards who let their comics collect dust on shellfs is stupid.

Why are you so worked up over people spending money on comics?
>>
>>64607775

Tbh, these guys should be embarrassed in some way. They make these threads here (and on CBR) for dick-measuring and lauding by idiots like them.

Any casual person would think of this as hoarding or some disease. There are people in here with perfectly reasonable shelves though, but there will always be that autist who thinks spending 10000 on comics is cool.
>>
>>64608219
He used the word autist and he's form /v/. He just wants to get a reaction out of people

For the record, I come into these threads wondering:
>I wonder what /co/'s taste in comics are like
>What do people read

Which these threads are interesting barometers of.

My thoughts when I guy posts five shelves worth of comics:
>He probably doesn't like/read half the comics he owns
>There are people in this world who could spend his money better than him.
>>
>>64608097
For some people the collection is part of the hobby. This happens for video games, comics, records, blu-rays, and whatever else people buy. It's just a different mindset from what you're trying to make a comparison too. You said you're hovering around 20 but their are people that keep every game they ever buy and they're probably proud of their collection of Atari Lynx games and have a special bag just for carrying them. Medium doesn't matter here.

Besides those 3x3 threads this is where I pick up most of my comic recommendations. It's also nice to get to see what a collection actually looks like and sometimes things like the binding , paper quality, or ugly recoloring. Honestly things like comixology are a god send because I don't have to buy a physical copy of a trade in a long running series like Hellblazer. I can stick to one shot graphic novels or short runs for my shelf without just pirating everything else.

Borderline Unhealthy

Of those four, the only annoying autistic is Johnny Walker, who posts in everyone of these threads, so you get the sense that he's proud of wasting his money.
>>
>>64601039
I just wish that getting my hands on chapters 7 and on wasn't such a pain in the ass! Heavy Metal has 2 volumes out that collect 3 chapters each, but that's it. The only way to get the remaining chapters is by buying the Panini Press books which only have two chapters per book. For fuck's sake, Heavy Metal, step up.

yeah I don't like reading comics digitally, but I put up with it because I just don't have the shelf room to spare for longer series. Those Hellblazer trades are really nice, but I just don't want to have 8 volumes of it physically

I disagree with your borderline unhealthy choices. Those are pretty nice collections, both in size and as showcases of their taste.

Dang. I have way less than the other borderline unhealthy guy though.

Our average purchase order from customers is actually around $270, its crazy.

Good. You seem like a douche bag who only cares about his paycheck anyways. I'd tell you not to bite the hand that feeds you but you clearly already have other ways you'd be retained at your position in some way or another.

Another disposable worker. Scurry back to the fast food restaurant. I'll be over here with all the other autists with a salaried position, job security, benefits and spending my money how I see fit. Good luck paying your rent.

Over the course of four years that adds up, and it's only like an hour of work for most people a week, if even that. People can be responsible with their money and still have large collections, especially if they keep at it long enough.

If you like Warhammer 40k, check out this crazy vampire comic that Heavy Metal does called Requiem: Vampire Knight. Vol 2 is pictured here >>64595403

It's a hyper-violent undead fantasy/sci fi series, and the art is equal parts gorgeous, brutal, and totally fucking bonkers. Pic related.

>>64621092
Is there trades for this that aren't a thousand dollars?
>>
>>64621092
Yeah. I mentioned here >>64608603 that Heavy Metal has published the first six chapters in 2 tpbs that run about $20 each. Amazon, ebay, etc sell 'em.

After that it gets more complicated...Heavy Metal hasn't published any trades past those. Panini Press has published up to Ch. 10 or so, but their trades are only 2 chapters per book. So you can either wait to see if Heavy Metal will step their shit up or mix and match.

So I have an interesting question that's kind of related to this thread. How much do you spend on comics a month
My purchases vary, because I don't have a LCS. Sometimes I go months without buying, but it's 15-40 every 3 month, and I make a big 80-100 dollar purchase about once a year.
>>
>>64621688
20-35/month. No big purchases.
>>
I forgot i ordered some tpbs on Monday until I saw this thread. They won't be here for another week at the earliest
>>
>>64620847
Lol im not C.R.E.A.M.
>>
>>64621688
100ish a month. I splurge when I find a good sale. Up to 200 for those.
>>
>>64621688
60-70 on single issues and then 50 or so per month on collections

I should really cut back on the number of books I pull monthly but it's hard
>>
>>64602149
just ordered Batman: Under the Hood volumes one and two and No Need for Tenchi volume 12, less than 21 bucks.

Disposable income.
A lot of collections here are someone spending $20 a week for years. If you can't afford $20 a week, you should focus on your career instead of reading comics on your stolen laptop anyway.

The Jim Henson books are awesome, I'm still reading Dark Crystal and it's great. In The Labyrinth they expanded on a ton of stuff, like there's a whole chapter of Sarah looking for the castle with The Fireys. And in the back there are copies of Jim's idea book of everything he was thinking of putting in. The Dark Crystal has Brian Froud's sketches of the Skeksis that look really cool.
>>
>>64626909

You're pretty much right, but it's totally out of hand. Sometimes people miss details when they read, and some of the stuff people talk about came out years ago. It's nonsense then, but it's twice as ridiculous when you're literally using the fact that somebody has a large collection of comics as proof that they don't read comics. Like, how do you even get that twisted logic?

I met him the year before as well and had him sign my Absolute Kingdom Come. It was at a local college and he was actually wandering the dealer room with several people following him around, but when he saw me at his empty booth, he excused himself from the crowd and came to chat with me for a bit while signing my book. He was overly cautious about signing it too, claiming he didn't want to ruin such an awesome (and expensive) copy of his book.

I didn't have the heart to tell him that I actually got it from a friend for about $15 after he scuffed the bottom of the spine and didn't want it anymore.

Collecting for the sake of collecting is retarded. Collecting because you like a specific character or author is cool.

>>64627684
Yeah. He got it during a local shop's storewide 75% off anniversary sale, read it, was carrying it to our friend's apartment and dropped it in the parking lot, then almost immediately told me he'd sell it to me because it was damaged.
>>
>>64627939
yes, we've established both of those things

I'm still not sure why buying a trade is suddenly the worst thing ever
>>
>>64627825
Look bro, I could see owning like 10-20 of your favorite all-time comics, and a couple toys/posters.

but regularly dishing out 100s of dollars on editions just for the sake of hoarding is some kinda autism.

At some point you will collect enough reading material that you will NEVER be able to re-read it all (if you are working as you claim) so whats the point?
>>
>>64627967
>0 reason to own a physical movie collection anymore.

I don't pirate because I'm on a college campus' connection. Stuff like Kaiju movies or old Brian De Palma films aren't readily available on streaming sites. I like having physical copies of my favorite films available.

Why, though? What's the difference? Why is owning 20 books acceptable but owning 100 is mental illness?
>>
>>64627825
>Do you seriously only spend money on absolute necessities?
Mostly, yeah. There's always ways to better your situation, I don't think anybody on /co/ is such a millionaire that they can flagrantly throw away all this money on fucking comics.

It's a cool hobby, but at the end of the day it's unhealthy, expensive hoarding.

If you want a buddy to go outside and do things with, let someone know.
>>
>>64627967
>0 reason to own a physical movie collection anymore.

This only works if you can readily pirate films.

>I really want to pick up some Perez Wonder Woman for my wife

Good luck. Amazon has them listed at crazy prices, and Ebay's inconsistent. I got lucky and got them both in a lot pretty close to cover price while I was looking for Azz Vol 1, so there's hope.

You'll probably have to go digital at some point, though. There are only four trades printed, collecting 24 issues of a five and a half year run. But yeah, WW trades are tricky to come by sometimes. A League of One is a pretty good find, though. The art is gorgeous.
>>
>>64626496
if you earn good money like me, you can spend all the cash you want on comics, wife, sons, car and other stuff. Besides, tecnically you don't own a shit when you "buy" online, or when you pirate comics.
>>
>>64628078

There's no specific number, but you can usually tell when people collect for the sake of collecting. Go to the CBR forums, for example.
>>
>>64628035
>just for the sake of hoarding
It's for the sake of reading, idiot. And after I read them, I have no real reason to get rid of them unless I didn't like them. I'm not hurting for money or storage space, so getting rid of them serves no purpose. I can always go back to them if I like them or lend them out to friends or whatever.
>>
>>64628078
chances are you will never reread those 100 in your lifetime, and are just owning them for hoard-reasons
>>
>>64628126
>I don't think anybody on /co/ is such a millionaire that they can flagrantly throw away all this money on fucking comics.
Do you seriously thing spending a hundred bucks a month on books is some kind of ridiculously extravagant spending? I pay my bills, buy necessities, put some money in savings and investments, and then I have leftover that I can put towards entertainment and hobbies, it's not like I'm starving myself and letting the electricity go out so I can buy comics

Not them, but I built a HTPC with XBMC. So everyone can watch things but I still don't have to buy things. That said, I still spend a lot on comics already.

Ok /co/, here's a rule its totally fine to own shit, but if you have over 300 dvds/book/comics whatever you probably have too much.
>>

I'm trying to get a copy of every comic Morrison and Moore ever wrote. Then I'll arrange them in concentric counter-circles with a stack of Niel Gaiman's Sandman in the center and invoke the name of mighty Dormammu whaile accessing my Kermit chakra to fix the hole in the center of the universe.

>>64628844
If you look at the responses you'll see people say they called IST and asked, and the average seems to be $70.

Yes, that is how this started.

They run out of DCBS, so that doesn't make any-sense. I'll trust the guy who's losing his job. Besides, look at CBR forums, those guys look like they spend $200+

wow, /co/ has changed. I don't remember summer ever being this bad.

Anyway I just bought/ordered the following this week: Absolute All-Star Superman, Final Crisis, and Batman & Robin; 52 vol. 1, and Seven Soldiers vol. 1.

>>64629327
Are you gonna have a Morrison shelf like this guy (>>64601415) does with Whedon?
>>
>>64629443
Eventually. I've got the Invisibles and Animal Man omnibuses, and most of his Batman run. I got into his stuff a few months ago and basically went full Morrisonfag
>>
>>64629443
Not that guy but I just realized just under a quarter of my books are Morrison, I really need to stop riding that guy's hyper-dick
>>
>>64629327
it's kind of silly. i personally buy comics because i love the feel of them in my hands as i read them, and i'm more likely to reread them if i have a physical copy

also i'm >>64628502 >>64628730, and a lot of the books that i do have, i've met the creators in person - deforge, beaton, brown, santoro, kc green, north, alabaster, etc. i've met in person. i like to support the artists

>>
>>64629707
Before I had bought it, I had previously read the first 16 issues. But man that book is good. More complicated than anything else I've ever read, and much more of a trip. Despite that, it is not incomprehensible, as a lot of people say (unless you're not willing to reflect on it). I couldn't bring myself to read any other comics for 2 months, because it was such a high standard for me. It's about everything, and the attention to detail is staggering.

Having it all in one volume also helps to better understand the time-travel related bits.

>>64630121
it was alright. kind of slow at times, but the ending is absolutely heartwrenching. if you can find it for cheap like that copy of louis riel, go for it

he seems to have had a fairly normal childhood for someone who later went on to write things like paying for it and ed the happy clown

speaking of which, if you're into REALLY weird comics, check out ed the happy clown
>>
>>64630212
does the omni have anything? i thought about getting it but decided on buying the cheaper books when i could instead of one big purchase
>>
>>64630256
It's been a while since I read it, but I remember it had an intro by Gerard Way, a few essays by Morrison that were in original issues/trades, and the normal omni fare (sketches, designs, covers)
>>
>>64630397
I would like to have read those essays but the rest I'm pretty sure I can live without...

>>64630778
How is Solo, overall?
Kinda interested just from Paul Pope
>>
>>64630807
Absolutely terrific, but it's probably far cheaper for you just to buy the individual issues. My favorites were Paul Pope, Richard Corben, Teddy Kristiansen, Damian Scott, Sergio Aragones, and Brendan McCarthy.
But I suppose it must be worth the buy if half the volume can be described as favorite.
>>
>>64630807
A lot of good issues in that book. I never read it, but I got it as partial payment for a commission and don't regret it at all. Some really great pieces throughout the book. Some great art, too.

Wish DC would revive the idea seeing how many people seem to have it and give some artists that outlet again. Some real interesting work came from it.

Yes it includes Franken-Castle, so funny you mention that as I pulled that omnibus off the shelf earlier today just to read that! Fell asleep super early due to drinking too much so now I'm about to start reading some more invincible on my tablet! Man I'm loving invincible.

Nice to see someone else with love for Tomb of Dracula.. man it's great fucking stuff... Are the first 2 omnis in color? I don't think I could ever get rid of the first three trades as they are in color. Black and white is so nice as well though...
>>
>>64628595
I own both. Have since sold bother simply becuase I'd rather make room for something else (I think I'm going to end up getting Invincible hardcovers...)

They are both extremely good but I'd give the edge to conan..

So many things I want to buy right now it's crazy
Annihilation omnibus
Guardians of the galaxy complete collection
manhattan projects vol 4
Doom Patrol Omnibus
Invincible compendiums or hardcovers

Must. Fight. Urge.
>>
>>64634085
Only one of those things is worth owning and then it isn't in the format listed becuase Omnibuses are not worth the effort to read them comfortably.
>>
>>64634113
There's always some guy in these threads saying how omnibuses are difficult to read, but I've never had a problem with them
>>
>>64634113
They are less comfortable to read but sometimes it's the easiest way to collect or cheapest way. A lot of times for omnibuses I will read them at my desk sitting in a chair and let the omnibus sit on the desk in front of me. This way comfortability isn't an issue.

I read comics on my tablet in my family room in a recliner. I read comics in my office in my recliner with the lights on.

Depending on what I'm reading, depends on where I read it. Kind of weird but some things are more comfortably read in certain conditions/places.
