Probably around 300 to 400, I don't keep count. Just make note which ones I have and don't have and go to ebay, you usually can find some nice ones cheap

171

As for how much, I can't honestly say. I do know that I spent about 280 bucks on all 28 volumes of Lone Wolf and Cub, 75 bucks on an absolute edition, and 300 or so on Neil Gaiman's Sandman series in Hardcover. The rest of the prices are varied and I don't feel like going to my bookshelf to check the prices when listed on the back of each book.

I'm guestimating 2000-3000 bucks spent on trades over the past 10-12 years

hahaha, I was thinking the same thing.

Could you imagine the shelf space you would need.


I have two Superman TPB and the Smallville one.
Plus Ultimate Spider-Man up to the Hobgoblin arc.
Plus a few of my favorite classic X-Men stories that Claremont did.

Boosh.

My book shelf. All 400 of them.

Taken two months ago. I keep a list of every trade I have, I write down the name, writer, artist, and my rating of the book.

I know how many books I have.

Probably about 300.

Yeah I never used to buy tpbs or hardcovers online until a couple weeks ago and realized how much money I could have saved. Now I get all my trades online.

A few dozen Graphic novels, but TPBs as in Reprints Ė 0. I know itís purely a collectors preference but personally, I Only go after the Original Comics. Whether itís something really good that I would want the Originals in my collection for value or even if itís only to read, I would still rather track down lower grade copies of the Originals. Sometimes itís not as cheap or convenient of a way to go but hey, to me thatís part of the Hobby. jmo

Not that I'm going to count it, but that doesn't look like 400.

I can email you the list if you don't believe me.

Also, that may not be 400. I took that photo a few months ago, so it's probably closer to 380.
