Ben: I didn't buy Legion of 3 Worlds
I almost did
but I flipped through it and didn't know who anyone was, so I didn't want to spend $4 on that risk
Albert: you don't know who Superboy Prime is?
Ben: obviously I know who he is
I meant the other characters
they're all just random legion characters from who knows where
Albert: it's explained
not that I think you'll like it
but you know
Ben: for $4, I was not so confident that it would be explained
or that I'd like it once explained
Albert: yeah I think that's the bigger issue
I'm not even sure why you would consider buying
en: b/c everyone's jerking off to it
Albert: only DC fans
Ben: so what?
I like some DC
I'd like to like more
I read Action Comics, the first DC comic ever!
Albert: no, I'm kidding
you're a DC fan
you've probably read more DC comics than I have
en: I don't knowabout that
Ben: though, I did read every issue of PAD's Supergirl
Ben: that's 75 for me
Albert: I've read 17,612
how about you
Ben: probably like 100 or something?
oh, there was Young Justice
how many issues was that?
Ben: and Starman
Albert: you've read more DC comics than Supergirl and Young Justice
Ben: I've read a lot of Flash comics
Albert: you've read a lot of Batman comics
Albert: and Gotham Central
Ben: Robin and Nightwing
Albert: yes you have
Ben: I've read a lot of those
but not Batman -proper
Albert: you have lots of Batman trades
Ben: thsoe are just for show!
ok, I have read those
Albert: you've read Superman too
Ben: so we're up to 544 now
Albert: like during the Loeb/McGuinness era
Ben: yeah, I did read all those trades
Albert: or the Joe Kelly Superman
Ben: ok, so 712
still far short of your number
Albert: don't forget about Gotham Central
Albert: and all the Infinite Crisis lead in miniseries
oh, and 52!
Albert: did you read the Joe Kelly JLA run
Albert: you read some of Morrison JLA
but you didn't like it
JSA, you've read tons of JSA
Albert: Stars and Stripe
oh, those old JLI issues!
Ben: though, I haven't read through all of them yet
Albert: and you read Booster Gold currently
and Green Lantern Sinestro Corps War stuff
and I think you read Green Lantern rebirth
the sinestro corpse war I downloaded
does that count?
Albert: you still read it
we're talking about reading
Albert: not buying
Ben: one of the first comics i bought in 1992 was a batman issue with killer croc in it
so that's one more
Albert: have you read the Dark Knight Returns
and the sequel
Ben: but I already counted those
I did read year one twice, though...
Albert: Mark Waid JLA?
Ben: I don't think we should count vertigo
opens a whole can of worms
I did read those old Alan Moore Swamp Thing comics that were pre-Vertigo
Albert: sandman was pre-Vertigo
except for at the very end
Ben: ok, I'll count that first trade
Albert: so, y'know
Ben: and the second b/c it had Dr. Destiny
but that's it
Albert: Daniel was in JLA
Ben: we're up to 15, 672
Albert: and Lyta Hall has been in a ton of DCU comics!
Ben: don't care, I'm not counting it
Albert: the ninth trade should count too
is all I'm saying
Ben: it's a gray area, so I'm making a judgment call
Ben: you need to find 2, 000 more comics or else YOU will be the DC expert
Albert: wait wait I miscounted
Albert: I counted all of my DC/Marvel crossovers as 1
when they should have been .5
Albert: so my real number is 15,671!!!
Albert: YOU LOVE DC
post it on the site
Ben: do it!
