Yeah, mines a tiny thing at the moment, but I JUST got out of an ice cold swimming pool. No, REALLY!


My collection?
Yeah, figuratively speaking, it wouldn't be hired for a career in porn either, but please keep in mind that I've only been back in the hobby for just a year now. So, I'm not doing too bad considering that & the fact that I'm working with a somewhat limited budget.
Now, if we went back about 31 years & we looked at the collection that I had at 18, we'd have somewhere between 3000-3500 more comics to figure in. Including full & near full runs of ASM, THE AVENGERS, FANTASTIC FOUR, DAREDEVIL, THE X-MEN & quite a few others. All of which I'd put together since I'd begun to seriously collect at 10. With a big helping hand from my parents, of course.
Unfortunately, as I lamented in this forum elsewhere, I sold off that wonderful collection for pennies on the dollar in a moment of TERRIBLE stupidity.
So, I went three decades before beginning to collect again last June.
And, I'm having more fun & experiencing more satisfaction with each comic & collecting  supply that I purchase than I ever recall having as a kid.

Wow, it's funny to see how much LCS charge. I only pay 7bucksfor along box and 4.50
for a small one. Damn.


At my LCS i pay $9 for a long, $5 for a magazine, and $4.50 for a small (At least that
is what i think it is[I have not bought one in months][going to buy one soon though, i
have about 400 comics and no more space for them])...I buy small ones,[no space for long
boxes at my house] And one time they gave me a magazine box it is just wider so i put
them in a row and also sideways (i dont lay them down flat,it can ruin the bottom one)

Also at the dollar store i have been given empty cardboard boxes that hold coloring
books,etc it can display the first comic so i put it on top of my boxes...it may not be
acid free though...
Also bags cost 7 dollars, boards cost $10 (is that normal or too much ?)

Since I cannot accurately recall how much I paid for my comics over the years, I have entered them all at newsstand price.

Nah, I have a pc. Currently a netbook, but I'm always using
different computers, and they all do the same thing.

Ah well!

I should mention that most of my comics are also entered at
newsstand price. Since I've bought a huge chunk of my
collection at conventions or sales, I didn't actually pay
that for a lot of them.

Speaking of which...I've gotta go add this year's
convention finds to my stash!

I attended a very small convention that is held in a meeting room or small ball room of a hotel close to where I live. The convention has the same dealers, and is held 3-4 times a year. The dealer I go to sells his comics for a dollar each, or 50 for $20. His comics are all in long boxes, and if you want to buy one completely full, it'll cost you $110.

Those are fun. I used to go to a con like that when I was
in college. They're nice because there isn't as much
chaos, and you can find some really cool things. Also,
MUCH cheaper :)

Haha, thanks for the confidence! Well, I've got five
months until then...I better get started. Hopefully this
DC Comics "reboot" will result in me getting MORE books,
and not LESS...

My totals are in my signature, but I still haven't posted about 7 boxes of Marvel, so it is inaccurate!

since the relaunch started...

And it grows by about 20 or so a month. My paid amount would go way, way up if I included shipping & handling costs...which is exactly why I choose to turn a blind eye towards it.
