    I'm starting to think I'm spending a bit too much. Just wondering what you folks are spending on comics each month? :noes:

    meh not too much...I usually spend between 12-20 a week. It adds up though for sure. Tomorrow is a much needed light Wednesday.

    I limit myself to $25 a week, otherwise I know I'd go over each time. Being new to all this, I have a lot of catching up to do. Elephant drive has saved my wallet a bundle, though.

    First two weeks I went, I spent nearly 80 each time. Between random books, TPB, a long box, bags/boards, it all added up.

    I was about to only spend 3 bucks today but then I decided to catch back up with Countdown.....it's not that good, but It's so close to the end I just wanna see it through.

    I spent $26 today and it was a slow day, i usually dump $35-40 per week. Sad thing is that I've been dropping books. My pull list numbers probably 40-45 books :o

    Too much. Probably about $200, which included maybe a graphic novel at about $20. I really gotta pull back though.

    I think my pull list was at its largest at about 50 comics, but that included some mini-series. I'm actually going to redo my pull list soon.

    Capped at $20 a week.

    excluding the mats to keep them safe :)



    Someone suggested it'd be cheaper & more sociable to join an online game. I say tangible goods > *

    I can sorta understand doing this for some of the bigger titles, but some of the good books out there are selling like 4-5k titles a month. Seriously if you like 'em buy 'em..... its so worth it, not to mention the smell of the pages :big grin:
