Here's a quick sampling of strips I've found from just the past week...
Does anyone else notice, too, that comic books are NOT mentioned? The Age of Superheroes may have arrived, but it left the comic books where they originated back in the dust.

"What the Amazing Spider-man/One More Day/Brand New Day taught me is that I can drop any comic title from my pull list and never have to worry about it again. Even the titles where I have compiled in a zombie-like fashion 300-400 issue runs."
"A comic needs to be pretty great for me to justify spending money since I have two daughters that always need new shoes."
"I download everything except for trades I read at my local library."
"I now pirate copies most of my comics but i would pay for digital copies legitmately if they were made available."
"We dropped all pulls on monthly floppies with the exception of Steve Rude's Nexus, which comes out infrequently enough to justify any cost on. We buy trades & GNs now when we can."
"I would love to have Fanta's big new Luba collection, but didn't I already buy all those stories at least twice already?"
"I've already changed my comics buying habits by... waiting for trades."
"I could see my comics-buying habits change in 2009 in that I... will continue to buy those books that I know that I want, but I will be less likely to buy an unfamiliar book that is highly recommended. Or I will buy it much later, used, from a seller on Amazon."
"The last thing having to do with comics I'd ever give up is... downloading 'em for free off the Internet."
"I could see my comics-buying habits change in 2009 in that I... live in an area with a very manga/graphic novel-friendly library system."
