Welcome, Christina :) Let me start by admitting I was trying to figure out your username. I thought it was supposed to be "Christ in a something".

How refreshing to see you like the 'cartoony' characters. I'm very good friends with former long time Disney artist (and Jack Kirby's favorite inker) Mike Royer (my Royer collection can be seen in my 'Public Stash'). I don't know if you're familiar with any
of his Dell/Disney work, but he has a real knack for the style.

Here's some of his art (that I own) for you to enjoy :)

Hi! My name is Tom and I discovered this site while searching for comic book inventory software.

So how did you start collecting?
I became interested in comics when I discovered the Star Wars comics...the original ones from 1977. I stopped collecting at some point in the 1980's but started up again in 1990 when I discovered The Sandman.

How many comics are in collection approximately?
This is a guess but I have 6 short boxes that are all almost full so about 900.

What do you like to collect?
I really don't collect anything new but I am currently trying to fill gaps from my collections.

Which title/character is most found in your collection?
Star wars, Sandman, X-men, Silver Surfer, Conan the Barbarian.

Hey guys. Pedro from Canada here and like many others, I discovered this site when looking for a better solution than just "excel" to inventory my aging comic book collection. Now my 12 year old daughter is hard at work cataloguing my stash for the negotiated price of $50/box.

So how did you start collecting?
I started collecting back in the early 80's, with the bulk of my comic purchases occurring between 1983-1889. For the last 20 years I've probably purchased 10 comics...they've been sitting idle, undisturbed during that time. How did I start? Hmm. Probably superman, batman and spiderman from the newsstand until I discovered that
comic book stores existed and the rest is history...

How many comics are in collection approximately?
I probably have 5+ boxes of comics..~1500 in total if I were to guess.

What do you like to collect?
In my 40's now....has not been something I have had or spent any time on. Will see what happens when I get everything catalogued...might think about closing some holes...or unloading the lot if my daughter doesn't want them.

Which title/character is most found in your collection?
X-Men, Spiderman, Batman, Swamp Thing, Avengers....probably half the collection or more across those titles.

Hi! I'm Sarah and I found this site while I was looking for some way to keep track of all the comics.

How did I start collecting?
Got hooked reading my Dad's old comics and then once I had the money on my own I started buying what I wanted to read and I haven't stopped since.

How many comics are in my collection?
I have 6+ long boxes filled so somewhere in the 1500 range?

What do I collect?
I am kind of all over the place when it comes to what I pick up from Classics to the small independents. Otherwise I am a big fan of a few artists so I try to pick up most of their books.

Which title/character is most found in your collection?
Star Wars, Batman, Buffy, Green Arrow, Fables, Doctor Strange

Hello everyone!

Most of my friends just call me Dix.

I've been collecting comics since the mid '90s. It all started because I was into role playing games and a friend invited me to play a super hero game. I can't even remember the name. In order to prepare for the game I went and picked up a half dozen comics, I and was hooked. I have to say that discovering this sight has added a whole lot of fun to my collecting, but logging my collection, adding book info, and writing reviews has turned into a major time sinkhole.

I've been on the site for about a month, and I'm up to almost 2900 books logged. I knew I had a bunch, but seeing the numbers grow has still been a bit of a shock. I have 35 boxes, give or take a couple. I believe most have been logged, except maybe one or two boxes. As I sort them out, I'll probably find books I've missed, since I had them written down in a theme book. I took some time off from collecting, so I'm still catching up on all the character changes. I came back to find a bunch of my favorite characters are now young women, which was a bit of a shock. Most of them have been good so far. I'm still working on sorting out the multitude of Superman changes.

I read just about everything. My favorites aren't necessarily the most numerous in the collection. I love The Green Hornet, and Doc Savage for example. Currently my favorite books are Guardians of the Galaxy, Guardians of Infinity, the DC Rebirth/Rebirth Universe series, Silver Surfer, Green Arrow, and the Green Lantern Books. I've just started reading them, but I'm really enjoying the new Wolverine and Thor.

Hi everyone.

New here but a long time on earth.
Been reading comics for over 50 years now, and if I have any regrets in this world it's not keeping and collecting all the comics I had right from boyhood. Ireally wouldnt have
to work right now.
Anyway, as this site gets populated, you'll see I am also a Trekkie, having most of the Trek comics that have been released. Also like Spider-man and X-Mex as well as a few
others.
I look forward to visiting here often, getting my stash inventoried, and looking around to see whats what. I'm glad someone recommended stashmycomics.com to me.

Sorry, you can NOT post a reply.
