Totally riffing on jamnloki's thread here, what books are you buying/collecting that you haven't or aren't reading?

I'm working on getting all of the original G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero books as well as G.I. Joe Special Missions and have the new ARAH on my pull list but haven't read any of the new books as I'm not done with my collection of the original stuff.
Same goes for the original Marvel Transformers books - I have Regeneration One on my pull list but haven't read any of 'em because I haven't gotten all the originals yet.

How about you?

I'm collecting the Hellblazer run and almost all the old school Valiant titles. I have alot of the Hellblazer but I'm waiting to read it and the Valiant stuff I had when I was young but my ex-wife sold it to be well an ex-wife. Other than that I am reading everything I'm collecting

Good topic.

I pretty much consider myself to be a dealer these days, but I still carry a torch for my old collecting habits. I still pick up anything Daredevil related, but haven't read any of them since around #90-something when Brubaker was writing it. The End of Days mini looks good; I may actually get to reading those.

Same goes for anything having to do with Power Pack, so I was getting FF and Avengers Academy (haven't read them).

Also love ROM. I hear the Age of Ultron has something to do with Spaceknights, so here's hoping for a ROM revival (Bendis is local, and once said at a show that ROM is the one character more than any other he'd love a crack at).

It's finished now, but I collected the whole run of Uncanny X-Force (2010) but still haven't read about half the series.

I'm working on pulling my Marvel G1 Transformers collection together. I'm about half-way there. Although I am reading Regeneration One.

Also, trying to get all of the Locke & Key books. I read the first series on my Kindle but haven't read anything else since.

I'm getting Chew right now, but not reading it. I have to catch up since I read the first 3 trades and nothing more. I have heard there is a big shocker in issue 30, but have kept myself from reading it so far!


Free shipping is available on ANY order $40.00 and above. No minimum books necessary. Whether it's 1 book or 100 books. If it's $40.00 or more, it ships FREE!

Also, if you buy 10 or more $1.00 books, all the $1.00 books are 25% off. Effectively making them $.75 books! I've got hundreds of them!

Come take a look!

Last amazing spiderman book I read was 200ish range and been buying them since, just got in all the covers for ASM #700 and Superiors should be here any day. I stopped reading them and just collect. I keep busy reading the random one shots and GNs. Though I might start up with the superior cause I am really curious how he is going to turn this stupid octo/spidey around.

I just realized that Fatale from Image existed so I'm trying to get all the issues before I read them. Love the Brubaker/Phillips team.

All of the Marvel Now #1's, the Scotty Young Variants.

I am only collecting/reading All New X-Men by Bendis.
I pick up Deadpool Now, but my 11 year old reads that.

I was collecting, but not reading Fantastic Four until it ended for Marvel Now because that was the comic I first started reading as a kid... I don't think I have read, except for a few story arches, in years. but I decided to stop spending money on it to switch to Bendis X-men, which I really enjoy.

I simply fail to understand why you'd buy a book, and not read it. Unless you bought one of those imprisoned books, and simply hadn't set it free yet.

I read every book I buy. If it's part of a series I haven't finished yet, I simply read it again when I've finished the series.

I'm anal about reading a title in order.Plus it will take a few years to read all my back issues.

Me, too! I'm sitting on my Goon comics until I can get those last few early issues that I need. Other than that, there's a bunch of newer Image comics that I'm collecting that I just haven't gotten around to reading yet.....

Ya know, I guess I can see that. But I also try to add as much information to the DB as possible ... so I just read everything so I can do credits and characters. :)
