I'm sure I'm not the only one here who likes to read comics on the porcelain throne so who else here does? what are your preferences? do you have a stack next to the crapper? I've taken to reading the IDW spotlight issues, nice, short, contained stories make them the ideal choice, plus spotlight Ramjet is an added bonus if you run out of toilet paper!

You know what, I clicked into this, read it, went "... Uhh, what? Why?!?" Then realised that this must be what it's like to come across some of the random shit I've posted.

Nope, I'm in then I'm out. Reading material in a bathroom has always struck me as a little bit odd... I don't see "bathroom time" as a time to relax, kick back and crack open a book or a magazine. And when I see reading material in a WC, I usually avoid touching it.

Next time out, just open the thread by telling us you're insane and save us all some time.

so no-one reads on the toilet? how about in the bath then? if i was insane i'd be asking what you read in the shower...unless of course it's the back of shampoo bottles

I read whatever new comic or book I happen to have to read while I'm doing my business in the bathroom.

I don't see anything wrong with it. I wash my hands.

It'd be cool if I could put a TV in there though.

Ah, I note this is a man thread... Sades states the female perspective.

Isn't there a :locked: around here somewhere?

Or should that be ENGAGED?

I'm not adverse to reading on the toilet, but I'm a straight in and out man (It's a lifestyle choice *cough*), plus I find if I spend too long on the pot my legs fall asleep and the phone invariably rings and I have to stagger half naked towards wherever I left it, crippled in my circulatory paraplegia.

I alschoose not to 'sit' on the toilet, I crouch on the toilet like Toad from X-Men, much easier to evacuate that way, ever tried readin 'Roccet Raccon' issue 4 that way without falling off and taking the seat with you? Impossible! Not even Mignola's greatest work can imbue me with enough balance to avert disaster there...

No sir, I'm a Toilet Stuka, straight in and no messing.

I read on the toilet, every time I am dropping a deuce. And I often take way too long because I get caught up reading what ever it is. Toilet time is most certainly a time to relax and get away, because I have two kids, and this means toilet time is about the only time I get to myself!

I generally have a few TPB stacked on the back of the toilet, along with 1 or 2 of my favorite books. Typically you will find a Ghost Rider and/or Spiderman TPB and a few occult and/or philosophy books there. I have been known to read single issues as well though.

I hadn't read on the toilet for years, but recently I've been buying loads of random comics from my comic shops 50p bins. So I've read odd issues of Excalibur, Generation X and a long forgotten Marvel UK mini-series called Children Of The Voyager, which was actually suprisingly good, considering the majority of their early '90s output was derivative superheroics (ah, Death's Head, I still mourn over the witless hackery of Death's Head II)...
