    Default Do you reread comics you like?

    Do you reread comics you like?
    Or do you just read a comic once?

    Reading comics/trades at least twice. Once they come out and once the second hits, I'll reread the first. After that its storage for the meh stuff and book shelf for awesome material.

    The only comics I read now are back issues e.g. those that I read back when I was a teenager, or ones that look good from the long period when I didn't read comics. I will often read them more than once.

    Actual comics? Maybe twice. Trades? Numerous times. Regarding the latter, I've lost track of how many times I've read Kingdom Come, Walt Simonson's Thor, Claremont/Cockrum/Byrne X-Men, Grant Morrison's JLA, Iron Man: Armor Wars, Punisher: Welcome Back Frank, JLA/Avengers and Green Lantern: Rebirth, just to name a few.

    I reread more comics than I read new ones.

    Currently working myself through the good first half of Ultimate Universe again.

    Absolutely. There isn't any new Kirby stuff to read.
    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    I reread comics constantly. My favorites like Miller's DD, Byrne's FF, etc., I have probably read at least 6 or 7 times over, maybe more. Newer comics I have not had a chance yet. I want to reread the New 52 Batman family stuff.

    Rarely ever. The only books I reread are the ones I felt mixed on, but in a couple of years I try to go back to, because I like the author of that book's other work.

    This is almost exactly what I would have said.

    In addition, some titles really lend themselves to being reread as the title is unfolding. The events in Atlantic City happening multiple times from different perspectives in 100 Bullets being an example that comes to mind.

    Quite a bit of Jonathan Hickman's work also lends itself to going back through the trade paperbacks after reading the latest issues.

    I reread under two circumstances:
    1 - On summer holidays, I take some whole runs of trades and reread them.
    2 - On a long series, then I'll forget what's going on, so I usually keep getting the trades until I have the whole lot and then start from the beginning

    Other than that, practically never. I have too much stuff I haven't read to do that.

    When I was a kid and had only a handful of them, I read them numerous times. Now that I have thousands (don't ask how many ), I only reread the ones that are special to me or just to refresh my memory regarding a plot I was now fuzzy on.
    A bat! That's it! It's an omen.. I'll shall become a bat!
