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.
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.
>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.
