Stats Week: 2014 - A Year of Reading Comics

Here's a chart showing how many comics I acquired each week, and how many I read each day of 2014:

My comics week starts on Thursday, as that's when the weekly DCBS shipment usually arrives. Each individual item counts as a comic, whether it be a 22 page floppy or a 600+ page graphic novel opus. The 'Roll' column represents the total delta from when I started keeping track (Feb 2009).

Once again this year I counted digital comics in the count in addition to physical comics. While I purchased fewer comics this year than last year (1591 vs. 1683) I read even fewer, leaving me with a sizable 129 comic deficit. I partially blame taking over writing the DC Month-to-Month Sales chart for the Comics Beat, which is a huge time sink each month and takes away from actually reading comics. Also the massive comic book weeding and organizing project.

Hey look, graphs!
