    The real question is: What are we going to do when comics become alive?

    @Op: So is the radio, vinyls and punch tape.

    Stay frosty.

    Vinyl is most certainly not dead.

    I still love comics, still read between DC and Marvel, still buy some even. Though with the internet it's a lot easier to keep up with tie-ins and ongoing series. Some people even upload entire issues to sites youtube, you can just skim through the video at your reading pace.

    It's one of those things I've been doing since I was little and I doubt I'll completely lose interest in them.

    I would be in debt if you consider that I read manga that are 500+ chapters and only 10-20 pages long,.

    If you really wanna save money, why not wait for a collected volume? Or are they not good about doing that? I dunno, I don't read any super hero comics...but I buy some TMNT stuff from time to time, and I've been meaning to grab some more. Got a really funny one called The Pro in a reddit gifts exchange (don't look it up, extremely NSFW...although I totally read it at work now that I think about it.)

    why not wait for a collected volume?
    Sure, you'll save 30-50% that way but for a trade paper back(TPB) you'll have to wait quite a while after the last includeD issue has been released.

    If you don't mind being several months behind that's a good way to follow a couple of series cost efficiently but ultimately still not that good.

    For example Batman's "Death of the Family" has 9 connected series, each with it's own TPB. Buying them when they were initially released would have cost around $200.

    That doesn't come close to other forms of media entertainment. I can watch every season of Breaking Bad for $10/mo on NetFlix.

    I hear ya on not wanting to wait. I can't wait 6 months for the Walking Dead collections...but maybe pick your favorites to do monthly and snag the collections when they come out for the others?
