    I've been thinking about re-reading Green Lantern and/or Green Lantern Corps in anticipation of The Blackest Night.

    Also been thinking about re-reading Captain America (have the omibus TPBs and now issues)


    Problem is I just don't know if I have enough time to do so..... wondering how often if ever you guys do this?

    I've re-read Crimson more times than I can remember. Love it.

    Spidy's clone saga I re-read a few times just trying to make sense of it all. And all the Death Of Superman TPB's I've gone through a few times as well.

    Oh and Battlechasers, since re-reading them was the only way to keep enjoying the series :(

    Not too often outside of a couple of storylines. I have re-read The Watchmen a few times over the years. Just re-read all of the Age of Apocalypse books for the first time since it was released. That arc was the one that really got me into collecting comics when I was younger. I go back and read the Hellboy books every now and then as well.

    Beyond that, I do not think there is much I have re-read.

    yeah im gonna re read the watchmen the day before the movie comes out so i can hate on all the differences. I havnt been reading comics long enough to have a chance to re read stuff. I think im gonna re read the walking dead though that shit is riveting.

    I do, but it's always the strangest shit I wouldn't expect to re-read, like Kyle Baker's Plastic Man or the Adventure run of Spectre.

    Kyle Baker's Plastic Man is awesome though.

    If I get the chance, I'll look at my old batman stuff.

    I re-read a lot of shit, just generally whenever I'm in the mood for something. Last thing I read was Ultimates 2 and The Long Halloween/

    Why would you want to hate on the differences instead of enjoy it?

    It's Mortixer, he hates the fact that the suit in Kick-Ass isn't an actual wetsuit and it has a mouthhole, besides the fact it almost looks exactly the same as in the comic.
