    Default How much do you spend on comic books?

    Whenever you have the time to go to a comic book shop, how much do you usually spend for old stuff Even new stuff? T shirts, posters, old action figures you buy from the comic shop but old action figures like g.I. Joe and Terminator 2 Kenner figures still in cards get a little expensive.

    For me I spend up to 84 bucks every time on old back issues and new comics whenever I go to the comic shop once every few months .

    It's not the old back issues that cost alot, it's the new comics that are spendy at 3-4 bucks Marvel mostly. That and the new trades too cost alot too such as a Marvel Epic Collection even the 16 dollar price for DC Rebirth trades etc

    80-100 a month of new comics(which is probably around 3/4ths DC, 1/4th Marvel for quite a bit now) though i'm trying to cut down, and once in a blue moon I'll pick up a figure or a trade(mostly on a sale or on FCBD)

    To much... Way to much. But that depend of what is out at that time.

    I'm near 80/100 a month too but if there is some TPB, a lot of variant I want or more comics than generally it can go way higher... And of course during the Comic Con period or when I go to Paris to search for old comics, commissions or figures, It goes so much.

    From a comic shop? Probably about $30-50 a month. Total, including collecting back issues and trades? Probably about $75-100.

    Well...

    I generally limit myself to five or six new comics per month.

    Then, once a year I go to my local con and spend about $100 on trades (with as many for only $5 as I can).

    And then there's the few times during the year where I might buy $50 worth of comics off Amazon or eBay.

    So yeah.

    Depends on the shipments that week. Anywhere from $25-$50 if all of my DC books align. I'll be trying a lot of the new Marvel #1 issues when they come out, so that figure will rise a bit.

    I try to keep it to around $40.00 a month. Sometimes depending on cheap finds through the dollar bin or eBay it could be about $50.00.

    As of now I have four DC titles but will be dropping to one title soon.
    I will probably keep my three Marvel titles and may actually add one or two more.
    Favorite Characters: The Flash (Jay, Wally, Barry), Daredevil, Spider-Man (Peter Parker), Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), The Atom (Ray Palmer), Starman (Jack Knight), Stargirl, Captain Marvel/Shazam! (Billy Batson), Hawkman (Carter Hall), and Iron Fist.

    Current Pulls: The Flash, Hal Jordan, Daredevil, Amazing Spider-Man, and Iron Fist.
