J-23 Posted May 2, 2017 Share Posted May 2, 2017 Thread, for all the comic collectors, lovers. It was about two years ago when I started collecting comic books, and ever since then I have been collecting. I have brought books from all across Vancouver, whether it's at a comic shop, Craigslist etc. I have around over 500 books, mainly consisting of Bronze, and Silver age, and a few Golden age books (Dell books mainly).Everyday I think, breathe, and live comics. i have been addicted to this hobby, and it's taking away a $&!# ton of my money. This thread is for people, to talk and discuss comics. Possible investments for the future. Show off some keys. Was it someone on these threads that brought Action Comics 1 for over 3 million dollars. Anyone have an Amazing Spider-Man 1. Also, feel free to share recent pickups on this thread, tell some stories. Keys I currently own are: Doctor Strange 169, New Mutants 1, Some Journey Into Mystery's. I don't have a job, so it's tough for me to buy big books that I want. Books that I want are pre hero books, such a pre hero from Tales of Suspense, Tales to Astonish, and Journey Into Mystery. Small runs that I'm planning on completing soon, include Web of Spider-Man, Howard The Duck, and new Mutants. Last year, I got to meet Stan Lee, and I was lucky enough to get my first ever Silver Age Marvel book from his signed. It was at Calgary Fan Expo, and I begged my parents for months, years, days, my entire life to go, as it was one of Stan's last cons in Canada, and it would most likely be my only chance to ever meet him. I got to go! It was one of the best days of my life, just meeting Stan, a legend! I got my Journey Into Mystery 101 signed by him, I got it CGC'd. Not a fan of CGC, but I wanted this one because it was Stan, the rest of my signed books get a Certificate of Authenticity now. Also, I'm curious to know how other bag and board there comics. i use Mylites 2 and Full Backs from E. Gerber. Super expensive, but worth it. I use Standard, SilverGold and Magazine size for my vintage Canucks Magazines. I will show some of my recent pickups, collections. Thanks for reading!
