    Default 1000 books in 2018

    Another new year, another new thread but the same old challenge!

    The goal, just like in the previous 3 years (damn, we are doing this for 3 years?), is to read at least a 1000 comic book issues in 365 days, starting today!

    Keep us updated of your progress and if you fancy write a few lines about what you've read, what you liked and disliked, just to keep things interesting and informative (even if you just pick your favourite and least favourite of your batch).

    Usually a 22 pages comic counts as one issue, in case of other formats just divide it with 22. If you feel like your 48 pages long French album is really wordy and takes just as long to read as a 120pg american tpb then feel free to count it as 3 or even 5 issues, nobody gonna shout at you, it's all for fun.

    Happy reading folks!

    As I commented on the 2017 thread before it closed for this one, this was my first full year of reading comics and collecting after starting back collecting mid 2016, mainly Omnis and HC’s.
    I knew i couldn’t do 1000 issues, like many of you here, because of mainly running our business, but instead I wanted to track what I could do. It was only 117 issues.
    But, a girl can dream for a bunch of free time for 1000 issues!
    (Personally seeking to double 2017’s number)
    Reliving my second childhood.... Making my TPB's take a back seat.....I'm now a new DC Omnibus and Hard Bound Book Collector: Batman: The Golden Age Omni V1 / Legends of the Dark Knight: Jim Aparo Vol. 2 / Gotham Central Omni / Justice League of America Silver Age Omni's V1 & V2 / Superman: The Golden Age Omni V1/ Green Lantern Omni V1
    with many more purchases soon to come.....

    I've always stopped counting after a 1000 but I think I've finished a bit later every year, first year July then August and now maybe September? Although last year I got back to doing more creative stuff so I don't mind if I do more of that instead of just reading.

    I participated the last two years.

    2017 Total: 1,817 Issues, 55 Graphic Novels
    2016 Total: 2,157 + Issues

    My goal for 2018 is to read 2018 issues, with some sub-challenges: 100 comics from each decade (with the 40s and before counting as one decade) and 100 comics by five writers. I do also think it would be useful to read some scripts.

    This year I'm counting graphic novels and golden age comics in terms of 20-22 pages equaling one issue.

    Hello everyone! This is my first post ever on this board. I've been reading CBR forever(I loved the old format). I recently joined the community specifically to contribute to this thread! I first saw it a couple months ago and thought that it looked like amazing fun. I can't wait to see what everyone is reading this year. I'm sure I'll be introduced to some great comics. Good luck everyone! Let's all read 1000!

    Starting off the New Year with some recent Spidey.
    1. Amazing Spiderman 792
    2. Peter Parker- Spectacular Spiderman 297
    3. Peter Parker- Spectacular Spiderman 298

    Total 2016: 3! Only 997 to go!

    My goal this year is 1500 comics and 30 books, the latter is perhaps a little ambitious. I'm also keen to see how my reading over the year varies with regards to publishers etc... This will be my template for recording such things.

    I'm in!

    2017: 2017 comics
    2018: 35 comics, so far (which would put me on a pace to read 6388 issues this year, if I kept it up)

    One of my big goals this year is to read more books from more publishers. Last year I got to 25. I'd like to break 40 this year.

    I have amassed a pretty nifty Google Sheet for tracking my reading. I've piloted giving some other folks copies. Is this a thing many folks here would be interested in using?
    Do you read comics in TPBs, HCs, and omnibuses - or are just not sure where to start? Check out my definitive guides to DC (including Rebirth!), Valiant Comics, and Marvel - including every X-Men and Avengers team and each Marvel Event.

    You'll find definitive reading guides including every issue of every major Marvel hero and team, like Black Panther, Captain America, Captain/Ms. Marvel, Daredevil, Deadpool, Spider-Man, & and more!
