How many comics are on your collection?

Postby The Shadow » Fri Jul 05, 2013 1:08 am

It's a poll.

Just curious how many books people have.

I have a little over 30,000 floppies and 1,000 trades and OGN's.

How many comics are typically in a regular longbox? 150-200?
Probably 4,000 floppies and a couple hundred trades?
I really need to take an inventory sometime.

Depends in the era, and bags/boards.

Good rule of them, Bronze age or before: 300 comics/long box maximum
Bronze to end of Flashpoint: I would sometimes see counts hit 450

Flashpoint to present: infinite, they are like cotton candy and have no substance.

I had around 5500 before I got rid of everything a few years back and now I mostly get trades from the library or Byrne-steal at books a million and Barnes and Noble.

I took a guess. I never have counted them up and never will. Too many.

Either nobody knows how many comic books they have or nobody reads comic books on here.

I probably have about 20 long boxes (some are in storage in various places) and a bookshelf full of trades (again, also in storage).
