Th Confused How Many Trades Do You Own ???

126 at present.

So that's over $3000, at least.

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

Pretty good...that's a little less the thirty cents off Amazon's price. Although, I notice shipping charges for anything under 50 bucks. Amazon wouldn't have charged you shipping for that book. (Or, is that the price after shipping? I looked on that sight, and didn't see the Omnibus listed.)

I own a good 200 trades, but probablly a little more, not all that sure. I have spent a good 4k on comics and trades but I didn't pay full price since I work in a comic book store

194, but I have been buying them since the early 90's

Not sure of total cost, buy most from Amazon, unless I see one that catches my eye while I'm in my Local comic shop

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.
