Regular Budget: Comic: 1-5$
Optional Budget: Comic holder with stand: 26$
If you are one of those people who don't like to read much, but love to collect and enjoy a good story, comics are the real thing for you! I'm not saying you can't read them if you do like to read books, everyone can enjoy comics, no matter the age or gender.
Comics have been around for a long time and based on stereotypes they are mostly read by geeks or kids, which is actually not the case. Reading comics usually goes with collecting them, but you can just read them or go to the extremes and only collect them, without even opening the safe bag.
You can get comics online, at book stores, second hand stands, trade with other collectors or you can read them online.
There are a lot of comic genres like fiction, humor, horror, detective, kid's, love, anime and so on. Choose what you like the most and either stick to that genre and make a collection, make a collection for a single comic series or you can just mix them all together.
Comics are great for killing time, enjoying your free time and the feeling of completing a collection is great.I enjoy horror comics and am a fan of Dylan Dog, but mostly the older ones. If you can't quite decide which comic you want to buy or which series, you should go on a comic reader's forum and read what others have to say about comics. One that I found best is: http://forums.comicbookresources.com/ You can also find descriptions of those comics and possibly reviews.
