    Reading comics/trades at least twice. Once they come out and once the second hits, I'll reread the first. After that its storage for the meh stuff and book shelf for awesome material.

    The only comics I read now are back issues e.g. those that I read back when I was a teenager, or ones that look good from the long period when I didn't read comics. I will often read them more than once.

    Actual comics? Maybe twice. Trades? Numerous times. Regarding the latter, I've lost track of how many times I've read Kingdom Come, Walt Simonson's Thor, Claremont/Cockrum/Byrne X-Men, Grant Morrison's JLA, Iron Man: Armor Wars, Punisher: Welcome Back Frank, JLA/Avengers and Green Lantern: Rebirth, just to name a few.

    I reread more comics than I read new ones.

    Currently working myself through the good first half of Ultimate Universe again.

    Absolutely. There isn't any new Kirby stuff to read.
    There came a time when the name edhopper died! The final moment came with the fatal release of indescribable power--which tore every post that bore the name edhopper asunder--split it linto a new identity, and filled CBR with the blinding death flash of it's destruction! In the end there was a new user name, spinning slow and barren, clean of all that had gone before, adrift in the fading sounds of binary thunder...THEN----THERE WAS KIRBY101

    I reread comics constantly. My favorites like Miller's DD, Byrne's FF, etc., I have probably read at least 6 or 7 times over, maybe more. Newer comics I have not had a chance yet. I want to reread the New 52 Batman family stuff.

    Rarely ever. The only books I reread are the ones I felt mixed on, but in a couple of years I try to go back to, because I like the author of that book's other work.

    Very rarely, which is pretty much why i only buy 3 books nowadays per month.

    This is almost exactly what I would have said.

    In addition, some titles really lend themselves to being reread as the title is unfolding. The events in Atlantic City happening multiple times from different perspectives in 100 Bullets being an example that comes to mind.

    Quite a bit of Jonathan Hickman's work also lends itself to going back through the trade paperbacks after reading the latest issues.

    I reread under two circumstances:
    1 - On summer holidays, I take some whole runs of trades and reread them.
    2 - On a long series, then I'll forget what's going on, so I usually keep getting the trades until I have the whole lot and then start from the beginning

    Other than that, practically never. I have too much stuff I haven't read to do that.
