I wanted to make this thread for those of us with a love for comic books.. this won't be for just Marvel and DC discussion, the comic book world is much larger than just the "Big 2"... we will discuss our collections or collecting in general.. story lines (arcs).. old school and current.. favorite titles or books.. discussion on the care of comic books.. the characters.. stories involving comic books in some way or another. It's just a place for us comic geeks to hang out.. Tagging @Trip in the Head @GrammarNazi82 @Sharpy Sandow My story: I started collecting at the age of 8.. 1984.. for 9 years I collected anything and everything that came out and bought back issues like crazy.. at the age of 17 I sold my collection for $2800 to purchase my first car so that I could get a job to fund my new comic collection.. I missed my babies and wanted to try and get everything back.. and more. From 17 until 35 I, once again bought everything.. including the majority of the comics I had in the first collection I sold... at 35 I decided to call it quits on collecting comics.. I kept 3 longboxes full that I store away just to have them.. the other 54 longboxes I sold for $158,000 and banked it for whatever. I couldn't go without comics for long and it is now the 21st century.. so I figured why not go digital... I now have close to 10,000 digital comics including nearly every old school Marvel comic you can think of (since I have always loved Marvel) and a ton of current comics as well. Comics are a getaway for me.. spending a few hours reading not only keeps my brain fresh and active, but regulates my heart rate and clears my mind. It really is therapy. That's my story. So, let's get this started guys and girls!
