Question for the community: If there are multiple series that you want to read that were all published at the same time, that all link up with the same event series, what, in your opinion, is the best way to read them? OK, I realize that it’s all subjective and that there’s no wrong way to eat a Reese’s read comics. So, I guess what I’m really asking is: what’s your preferred way of reading comic series?
So, how would you prefer to read these series? Choose one to read all the way through, read the events when they happen, then read the other two and try to remember what happened during the event? Read a trade’s worth of issues from all three, rotating among them, and incorporating the events plus the tie-ins as they come along? Or something else entirely? I’m concerned about the second option, because I worry about suffering from tonal whiplash trying to read three such totally different series at once, plus I have a hard enough time remembering all of the events that have transpired and keeping track of all of the characters when I’m reading just one series. But the first option doesn’t seem ideal either. So please let me know how you do it, because two-and-a-half years into my comic reading endeavor, figuring out how to read comics is still my biggest roadblock to actually reading comics.
