Anyone a comic book / graphic novel reader?

Used to read a lot of comics from the age of about 5-13 or so but didn't really pick any up until recently.

I've just got the first issue of the Buffy Season 8 comics (these actually takeoff where the TV series ended) written by Joss Whedon himself.

I also enjoyed Joss' Fray comic that he wrote, about a slayer in the future.

I was never bothered until I saw Sin City. I've read the first couple of them, and began to read Watchmen, but didn't finish it, enjoyed what I did read though.

I do read Marvel Legends every month for a bit of light relief. Good fun.

Does 'VIZ' count? I used to love that. We used to get a ward copy every week it helped to run the NHS smoothly.

I used to be a big fan of D.C. Comics back in the late '80s and early '90s.

Especially Green Lantern, Green Arrow and The Flash.

I've still got a shitload of them in the loft.

I've always been more of a Marvel man than DC :)

Definitely a DC man, although Marvel have brought out some decent stuff ("Marvels", "Ruin" etc) over the years. I started collecting as a kid in London, stopped when I moved to Oxford area aged 10 (couldn't get American comics out here then!), and then started again aged 35!!
Am now at approx 5000 and counting.................(sad old git)..........and today's my 50th birthday! My wife and children have officially given up on me.

I used the read some comics regularly (2000AD, Judge Dredd Megazine), and have a small collection of graphic novels; 'From Hell' being a recent fave.

I of course (like every proper slacker/stoner) have every issue of the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers, and most issues/collections of Pete Loveday's 'Russell' character.

I used to try and read Live and Learn I think it was called, because I loved the Triton Empire science fiction comic serial.

The only thing I own (I think) is the comic book adaptation of Stanley G. Weinbaum's A Martian Odyssey.

I read quite some comics, but none of the American stuff. I prefer the European (mainly French and Belgian) comics.
