    How many DC-several thousand plus trades etc. (and several thousand form other publishers too)

    What are they-well that could take a while, but stuff ranging from the Golden Age (in trades) to the present, from super-heroes to DC war books, mystery/suspense titles, westerns, sci-fi etc.

    When did I start collecting...reading, as a wee lad int he early 70s, collecting in high school in the early-mid 80s.

    First DC comics-Batman #250 in the summer of '73. I was mostly a Marvel kid until high school and really got into DC in the wake of Crisis and the post-Crisis era, but always read some DC and Batman 250 was my first super-hero comics of any sort (I had other non-super-hero stuff earlier).

    Comic fans get the comics their buying habits deserve.

    I started buying comics before I could remember and I've never stopped. It used to be a lot more Marvel than DC, but it's mostly DC now. I don't remember my first DC comic, though I do recall a Legion of Superheroes (I remember thinking, "why is that lightning guy from Superfriends white in the comics?") , a Green Lantern (I recall a scene of GL recharging his ring while his hands were tied behind his back) and a Captain Marvel (the villain was the robot Mr Atom) when I was kid...

    A pile of trades and a few floppies that I bought because they're not collected in trades. I stopped buying modern continuity because I'm annoyed by how they collect the crossover issues and decided to go with the free continuity or early continuity classics because it's less annoying to collect.

    I've about 30-40 long boxes, and four 2x4 Ikea Kallax bookselves worth of trades. So however many that is...?

    I started collecting comics in 1987 (Archie), but DC became my favorite publisher soon after. My first DC books were a couple of 1989 annuals a neighbor (or uncle?) bought me.

    Way too many.
    The MAIN runs are:
    Every Flash comic starting from #106 (1959) through till now.
    Including annuals, one-shots, variants, tie-ins etc.

    Green Lantern #194 through to Geoff johns' last issue #20.

    Green Arrow #1 - #137 plus the following volume till #75.

    Batman starting with #348 up till #702, plus the first dozen issues of the New 52 book.

    Detective starting with #500 up to #756 plus the first 6 issues of the New 52.

    Justice League/America/International/Europe/JLA - all of 'em.

    Robin #1 - 64

    Aquaman - Everything from #1 PAD's run till now

    There's a metric ton of other stuff, but these are the books that spring to mind.

    Way to many to list. I have greatly decreased my number through the years to about 3 long boxes of just the characters that I REALLY love and want to collect.

    Characters or runs I collect:
    Flash- Random older Barry issues and almost (getting really close) all of Wally West run.
    Starman- the entire run.
    JSA- random old issues and all of Johns run.
    Hawkman- all of Johns run.
    The Atom- Whatever appearances that I can find.
    Green Arrow- Mike Grell's run
    Green Lantern- All of Johns run.
    Shazam! Mainly Ordway's run and random older stories.
    AKA FlashFreak
    Favorite Characters:
    DC: The Flash (Jay & Wally), The Atom (Ray Palmer) , Jack Knight, Stargirl, & Shazam!.
    MARVEL: Daredevil, Spider-Man (Peter Parker), Iron Fist, Doctor Strange, & Ant-Man (Scott Lang).

    Current Pulls: Daredevil, Amazing Spider-Man, Venom, Immortal Hulk, Guardians of The Galaxy, Ghost Rider, Dr. Strange, Star Wars,Shazam, & TMNT!

    The last count capped out at around 21,000, about 80% of them DC. I started collecting in around '74. I stopped seriously collecting when the New 52 kicked in, though I've been sporadically picking up titles hither and yon since then. I have complete collections of too many series to count.
