    I pre-order all my comics so that I get a 25% discount. And depending on the releases of the week, I try to go to the store every friday to pick up my new stuff. What about the rest of you?

    i make a list of all the comics for that month that i want the store to hold for me. he holds them and i go prolly every two weeks to pick them up. since civil war came out i have been going every week though :hsd:

    for harder to find books i use ebay or i see if the store can order them for me and they just hold them in my file

    I'm about two blocks away from the shop I go to, and the owner has a book that he keeps that has my name, e-mail, phone #, and a list of the series I want. He contacts me when they come in.

    When I have a lot of money, I just visit the downtown comic book store and pick up old retro/classic issues of Spider-Man, Ghost Rider or The Punisher.

    They usually have these 5-issue packages for around $11 and I often grab those. I'm also a manga reader, so I pick up any volumes that I can't find elsewhere, locally (mainly the Spawn manga titles). I haven't been really digging into the titles of mangas lately due to time, but I'll probably get back into it soon.

    I also love graphic novels, but they're so expensive. Getting one copy of Y: The Last Man costs around $40. It's not like the graphic novel is thick either.

    god, eBay is going to be the slow MURDER of my bank account. i've seriously bought $400 of comics easy in the past few months, but i can't HELP it.

    like my most recent purchase, i snagged the current run of the punisher, 20-32 for $16.99....how do you say no to that? :hsd:

    Till I was 12 I read European comics. I stoped read comics when I was 12. Now I'am 22 and I start reading comics again. I read american comics. I have read this year Punisher: black is white up is down, Punisher: welcome back frank and 100 bullets.

    I liked both punishers, but the first part of 100 bullets was a little boring in my opinion

    I read the reviews at amazon and then buy the american comics via internet.
