The Different Types Of Comic Book Readers

Comic book readers have such diverse opinions about the medium, and vary so widely in terms of commitment level, that it should be really hard to divide them up into categories.

And yet it seems that the 8 main types drawn up by Julia Lepetit describe most of the readers out there, especially when the types are combined into a new, improved super-reader-type.

There's the Museum Curator, who knows each issue's grade to the tenth; the Newbie, who has a hard time wrapping his mind around all the different worlds; and that maniacally geeky Researcher, who keeps all the alternate world stuff straight for the rest of us.

I'm a Collector-Groupie and occasional Lapsed Reader when I don't have the time or funds to keep up, what kind of reader are you?

That's why I never got into comics. I wanted stories to end, and not have to worry about trying to keep up and get the next issue.

They're trying to bring that same formula to the movies - you have to tie everything into the Marvel universe, and have every movie and tv show align. I'd rather see some good stories without having to tie everything in and beat dead horses. Just let those horses be.
