The 70s and 80s were the foundation for many comic book readers. While that may be a couple of decades ago, do you still read comic books? And if so, which ones do you like reading?

Yes, I love them. I was sad to see an end to the days when you could get a decent range of independent comics down at the local newsagent, but many publishers couldn't afford to put out and distribute physical comics when the bubble burst. But then the internet came along and now you can read them online which makes them a lot cheaper to produce and easy to get hold of. I love visiting my favourite comic shop, but I also borrow comics from the library or get them for my Kindle. Currently I read Wonder Woman and Catwoman mostly and I'm slowly reading the trade paperbacks of Y the Last Man. Old favourites include The Sandman, Strangers in Paradise, Calvin and Hobbes and Frumpy the Clown.
No I don't anymore. My dad occasionally reads them in the Sunday newspaper.
I still, on occasions, read Comic Books. I introduced my girls to the Archie and Richie Rich comics. So you will find me reading these once in a while. LOL
I last read a comic book in 1963
I have a great nostalgia for Archie comics. My dad read them as a kid, and when I was a child I found an old stash of his at my grandmother's house. So now I can't resist grabbing some whenever I see secondhand ones for sale.

I also recently discovered the new Archie Married Life comic books which imagine his life as a grown up, and they are terrific. They led to me branching out into the world of comics a little, and I've recently been devouring the Fables series by Bill Willingham, which imagines classic fairytale characters exiled from their home lands and living in New York.
Not anymore, but I have read that somebody is going to make the Heroes tv show into a comic book. I would read that to find out where they were going with the storyline.
I don't read soft cover comics, but I have read a couple of hardback graphic novels which I really enjoyed. My son loves books and is really into Neil Gaiman and Alan Moore graphic novels - he suggested I try graphic novels. In fact I am just about to order the whole series of Agatha Christie graphic novels. Strange really as I'm not a big fan of her writing, but the graphic novel I read - "Endless Night" - was pretty good in the comic version.
