    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 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.

    There are plenty, but not gigantic if you get me. I think guys like Cromagnonman will know more, I've never attended one but have seen many advertised.

    There are actually a lot of regular or semi-regular ones (Bristol, for instance), but they perhaps don't get the level of advertising they should.

    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, Flash, Daredevil, Ms Marvel, Silver Surfer, Thor: God of Thunder

    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.
