    Default Time for you to Brag! "I've read *** issues of (blank)"

    Ok time for you to do some bragging. Impress us with how many issues you've read of a long series, or issues with a character or team.

    I read all 8(9) issues of Convergence, including a few tie-ins. I know, I know—you don't have to rush at me all at once to hand me my award.

    To my knowledge, I've read every appearance of Robin in Batman, Detective Comics and Teen Titans from the New Look era in 1964 until 1980. Working on filling the gaps with World's Finest and other minor appearances as well as extending this up to his transition to Nightwing in 1984.
    It's the Dynamic Duo! Batman and Robin!... and Red Robin and Red Hood and Nightwing and Batwoman and Batgirl and Orphan and Spoiler and Bluebird and Lark and Gotham Girl and Talon and Batwing and Huntress and Azreal and Flamebird and Batcow?

    Since when could just anybody do what we trained to do? It makes it all dumb instead of special. Like it doesn't matter anymore.

    If you take into account the different Flash series, I have read:

    -The Flash V2 (Wally's series) 1-247 + 0 + 1,000,000 + All Flash #1 + some annuals and one shots;
    -Bart's short lived Flash series 1-13;
    -Barry's post Flash Rebirth 1-12;
    -New52 Flash 0 - 51
    -All Williamson's run, except for The Price crossover and Metal tie-in , so around 100 issues
    -Adams' current run with Wally (6 issues)

    So around of 450 issues of The Flash.

    Impressive! Any idea on how many issues that is?

    I own and have read every issue of the Flash from #105 through till now.
    That includes annuals, one-shots, promotional issues and variants (yes even the 1:200 New 52 issues).
    I also have an insane amount of Flash trading cards, statues and figures.

    I try very hard not to think about how much money I'e spent compiling it all!

    Thanks! I mostly read the black and white DC Showcase Presents reprints which collected about 25 issues per run. I think it was around 6 or 7 volumes of Batman/Detective, 2 volumes of Teen Titans, and 1 volume of Robin that collected his backups from his Hudson U era, plus some missing holes from Comixology and scans online of the old Batman Family series that to my knowledge hadn't been reprinted or available digitally at the time... I'd guess they were collected from around 250-300 comics, but not all of the stories were full issues, some backups. I'm sure I could track it down on Comicvine, but that's an estimate.

    I read and own every ongoing monthly of Superman issue from from 1993, up until late 1998. Essentially from The Death of Superman up until the Superman: Save The Planet one shot. Upcoming graduation and general life after high school ended up breaking my streak.

    After that my next longest streak would be the entirety of New 52 Superman.

    I've read all 9 issues of ultimate power And all 16 issues of ultimate Marvel team-up.

    Remember those titles? Sadly UMTU is largely forgotten. It has Bendis doing compressed story telling

    I've read enough of Green Arrow to know he's almost as OP as Batman.

    I know I've read every issue of Wonder Woman (v. 1) from #288-329, and 1986's #1 (v. 2) through last month's #775. Add to that dozens of Annuals, mini-series, one-shots, and other specials... I've gotta be pushing 1,000 consecutive issues, right...?

    If I'm not I'm blaming DC's renumbering calculator.

    Ah just realised where this topic was placed ><

    I've read all of Morrison's Green Lantern... that's the only Green Lantern I've read.

    I'll come back in a month when I hopefully have New 52 Green Arrow done.
