Is "He has more comics than me". correct or is "He has more comics than I." correct.
In Gmatclub grammar book it was mentioned that comparative phrases are always followed by subject pronouns, but in the book "He has more comics than me." is used in which me is an object pronoun, kindly clarify. Thanks.

i think the second is correct even sound a little awkward , the better sentences must be “he had more comics than i had”

Comparison should be made between two logical things. If you consider 'me' as an object here than the comparison will be made between comics and 'me'. Replace here 'me' with some object(say chocolates) and you will understand,

Here logical comparison should be between he and 'I'.
Correct structure will be like
'He has more comics than I have'
Here 'have' is omitted which is makes the correct sentence look a bit awkward.
