so ive always wondered this: do those little 6 issue paperbacks generally take as long to read as the average movie does to watch? also, dumb comic question general.

no judgment from me, folks. ask away

In my case and with the tight schedule I live with a trade can take me a couple of days but if I sat to read a trade from beggining to end I'd say it'll take about a hour.

Depends on how fast you read your comics.

i guess that would make an 8 issue mini like a movie then, if you read fast enough

About an hour in general, depending on how much you pay attention to the art. Some of the more wordy stuff like Stan can take longer.

In terms of form and composition I think that comics are more like literature
A 6-8 issues trade is like a novella and +10 issues tomes are like movies.

I've found that a single 24 page issue takes me about 24 minutes, so about equal to an average episode of a TV show sans commercials. That makes a standard trade close to 2 and a half hours so I'd say that a movie is a decent comparison.

I read comics relatively slowly though, I take a lot f time to soak in the art and trace the page/panel transitions with my eyes. I hate just jumping from balloon to balloon but if it's a quicker sequence that can happen. Depends on the comic and the creators, there can be a large variance in pacing.

Depends if you are reading something like Sandman or are reading the latest thing Bendis shat out

>I read comics relatively slowly though,

Me too. I also take about a half-hour to read a single issue. Maybe more if it's an older comic with more text and exposition.

When I lend my comics to my normie friends, they finish them in, like, five minutes, and then go "that was short, lol."

I don't know if I just take more time to appreciate the art and layouts, or if I'm just dyslexic.
