    I own 199. My collection consists of mostly Punisher comics. I would tell you other comics and what issues but I'm not at my house so...just post what you have for now.

    Too many and I don't want to count. Probably close to 100,000, maybe more.

    I've got about 750. I have been following comics all my (relatively short) life, but I've only been seriously collecting for the past two years or so.

    I've got between 2,000 and 3,000.

    I don't doubt that 100,000 comics would be too difficult to come by. Once you start buying entire lots of comics to get that one issue you want, they start adding up quickly. I know some people who shell out a couple grand to buy 2 or 3 longboxes of comics because they're missing a few issues that are included in them. Usually, they sell off the books they don't want, but some guys build massive collections doing that.

    I must ask: why do you come here if you've only ever bought 2 comics? and how do you even know who nightwing is?

    I must say I am amazed I just bought about 500 and I already see it as a storage problem for my new appartment given the DVDs, books, etc. Here I see numbers of 30,000+. I am amazed where did you keep them all?

    Now I did see and it looked very well organised. I don't know how mine will be stored as I am waiting for my appartment to be furnished. Once I see how that is done, then I can see how I do, but I have a feeling boxes are a must :D

    More than 10000. I stopped counting at that number three years ago. Now I'm buying some 30-35 new books every month. They are quite all in my basement in boxes. And I can't find my "V for Vendetta" and some of my "Sin City".
