Holler at the Haul Question of the Week (from October 21st)

“What is the longest Comic Book series/run you have ever read consecutively, WITHOUT missing an issue?”

Joe G.

I bought, read, and still own, issues #212-400 of the original Uncanny X-Men run. I’ve since filled that back to #176. But as far as a consecutive streak, 212-400.

Ashlee B.

The entire New 52 run of Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo on Batman #1-51 (I even got the first 3 issues signed by them at Boston Comic Con after it came out) and Saga #1-50 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples.

Neil T.

Every regular issue of Justice League of America (About 700 issues) starting from the 60s, Every regular issue of Teen Titans starting from the 60s (About 600 issues). Every regular issue of Superman (About 850 Comics), Action Comics (1028 issues), Detective Comics (1025 issues), Batman (About 650), Flash (I think 800+), Green Lantern (Including Corps, at least 900 issues) and Wonder Woman (At least 700) starting in the middle 70s with some going back as far as the 50s. (Thats at least 7200 books)

Adam B.

New 52 and rebirth Batman all (carries into another box). Batman Eternal [52 weekly ] & Batman and Robin Eternal [26 weekly] was my biggest collection. Love the Aaron Thor Run. Jane Foster Thor IS MY Thor. I’ve still never read John’s GL run.
