I am about half way through Blackest Night currenly (reading BN, GL:BN and GLC:BN concurrently). Which although I am enjoying, it does so far feel a bit short of actual storyline and just random carnage. Green Arrow : Big Game is next after this...

All bagged on a book shelf unless they are collectible or dear to me, then they are bagged and boarded and put in comic boxes.

TPBs are in a 4-shelf bookcase, alphabetical by character/team
Premiere HCs are on 2 other shelves.
Oversize HCs are lain flat on yet 2 other shelves.
Comics are bagged in white comic boxes, and one or two Volstor cases.

Going to have a big reorg this holiday season, and try to make some space.

Up to volume 3 of 52 and loving it. A real slow burn with vol 1-2 but it's all starting to pay off. Will read vol 3-4 back to back I think.

My trades are on a bookshelf in the spare room, all my floppies are in boxes. I buy mostly trades these days so my book shelf is slowly filling up

No worries

They've been recommended before, but Y The Last Man and Walking Dead are both brilliant. I loved Moore's Extraordinary League of Gentlemen and his From Hell. I'd go as far as to say From Hell is a masterpiece.

If you like his Preacher, you'll almost certainly appreciate The Boys and Punisher MAX (ignore his early Punisher stuff with Steve Dillon, because it's pretty poor).

Also Hitman, which was written largely in parallel with Preacher, is a fantastic read when read as a whole, and imho is actually a better book overall than Preacher. Hitman is currently being slowly collected by DC, I'm lucky enough to have all the original singles.

I have now subscribed to Clint because I like every story running in it, and a few of the articles as well. Anybody else?

Gave up on issue 2 - liked the stories in it but the whole "edgy adult articles" thing put me off - made the whole think feel rather juvenile and seemed to set how people would view comics back 15 years

I agree with you about the articles, but just dont read them.

My subscription works out at around £2.55 per issue (took a gamble and pre-subscribed before issue 1 was out, via a website offer), which works out a dirt cheap way to read some comic stories.

Mark Millar = Juvenile. And not in a good funny way.
