Hello everyone. I want to start off by saying that I'm both new to this site and to reading comic books. I love the DC Universe and I've mainly experienced it through film and video games. However, I recently stumbled across the New 52 and figured it would be an ideal time to start reading.
I went ahead and bought Batman: Volume 1 and Batman & Robin: Volume 1 from Amazon and I'm patiently waiting for them to arrive. In the meantime I bought Action Comics #0, Nightwing #0-1, Greenlantern #1 and Justice League #0-1 digitally. I'm also interested in Detective Comics, Batman the Dark Knight, Batgirl, Redhood and the Outlaws (yes I love Gotham!), the Flash and Swamp Thing.
Now my questions to you are as follows. How many series do you currently read regularly? I fear that my list may be too large to keep up with, both in terms of time and money.
Do you prefer hardcopies or do you buy them digitally? I much prefer having a physical book in my hand when I'm reading. I never got into e-books apart from owning a few for my commute to work on the London Underground. It could be due to the fact that I'm reading on an iPhone and I should just get myself a tablet or e-reader. However, as I live in a one bedroom flat (apartment) with my girlfriend, space is at a premium. If you do buy physical comics, do you prefer hardcovers or paperbacks?
Lastly, what are your current favorite series? Thanks for the help!
