25. Been a fan of comics/superheroes since I can remember. During my teens I kinda stopped reading comics, but in the past 2 or 3 years I started reading again. Now I go to the local comic shop once or twice a week. It is my only hobby and it is pretty amazing. I love comics and will probably not stop loving them or reading them for a long time to come.
I'm sick of television, I'm sick of you!

I'm 24 and I read comics when I was 8-12 years old then stopped until 21....best choice I made in awhile picking them up again!
I'm 36 and I still collect comics I guess since I was a kid I've always been a good artist and Superman The Movie made me a lifelong comic fan.
What if a child dreamed of becoming something other than what society had intended? What if a child aspired to something greater?
Im 25 and 3 quarters. I didnt read comics as a kid, started when I got a job at 17. I have a couple of friends in their late 20's who read comics too.
Thor: God of Thunder, Indestructible Hulk, Deadpool, Captain Marvel, Avengers, Mighty Avengers, All-New X-Men
I am 19, been reading comics for almost 2 years next May.
I read and collect them because it's a great hobby to me, although I wish I picked it up when I was younger. Amazing stories and especially the art by talented writers/artists keep me going, and I hope to some day pass my comics down to my kid or nephew.
Pull-list: Action Comics, Batman, Superior Spider-Man, The Flash, Superman, Batman/Superman, Superman/WW, Superman Unchained, Earth-2, Harley Quinn, Astro City, Detective Comics
I think a big reason that there aren't many kids who read comics is the limited access to them (compared to when I was a kid). Of course the price now is a problem too, but I remember when there were comic racks in most pharmacies, convenience stores, and even grocery stores. I would buy a few and read them at the magazine rack while Mom did the grocery shopping. I'm sure she was glad that I wasn't bothering her while she shopped, and I didn't hate going anymore. It was worth it for her to have me content and accounted for. Comic shops are great, but making comics a specialized hobby probably has really cut back exposure to them at a young age. Instead of just walking into a store, noticing a cover and deciding to check it out, kids today have to actively seek out comics.
I am 40 and from Denmark, and I was reading American superhero-comic books from when I was 12 until I turned 16.... and then I at the age of 38 I bought 2000 American and Danish comics. Then it got totally out of control when I later divorced my wife. I am now the happy owner of about 4000 comics.
I have discovered the high level of the authors (Neil Gaiman, Alan Moore etch.), and I like the more mature line of comics from Vertigo, Icon, Image, Dark Horse etc., but I still find great satisfaction in superheroes. In my youth I wouldn't touch a DC Comics and was a huge Marvel Comics fan. Now I read them all and is buyng collections to supply my growing collection.
18. Been reading for 2 years, don't plan on stopping.
