There was an adjustment period to be sure. I stay about 6mo-1yr behind, depending on the character, but when someone like Instocktrades.com offers 40-50% off on first week releases I can get, for example, nu52 Batman(first arc) and Detective(first arc) and it's almost like buy one get one free. Sometimes I feel I'm stealing entertainment. If one can adjust to "not needing to know right now" for some characters or crossovers you can save yourself some money. Heck get more bang for your buck.
Despite my efforts though Resurrection Man got cancelled and Frankenstein Agent of SHADE is as well. I mourn the loss of Rucka's Punisher and the current Thunderbolts/Dark Avengers book(love me some Man-Thing you know).
I get all VALIANT, Ghost @ Dark Horse, Aquaman, JLD, Swamp Thing, Sword of Sorcery, Animal Man, Red She-Hulk as an example. I will eventually be getting JiM starring Sif and Morbius as well. If that Savage book was Ka-Zar and Shanna then I'd be all over it but the inclusion of Wolverine means it's sells don't need my monthly dollar. I'll also be getting X from Dark Horse in December.
Just thought I'd expand on that thought for you. Hope it wasn't overkill.
