I feel quite proud of getting control of my comic buying habit. I’m barely buying anything now. A big part of my decision to cut back was the incessant rebooting and confusing numbering systems the big 2 adopted.
I understand they want to attract new readers who may be put off by issues up in the 100’s hence a number 1 gives a natural jump on point for new readers. However, high numbering never put me off as a kid. I also question how many people are buying comics aged under say 15 or 20 to those over?
Every comic I enjoyed reading and, crucially, collecting has had its numbering messed with with many titles having multiple no.1 issues in a decade.'it put me off collecting.
Did it work for you?
