i don't know if 1975 was a good year for comics or not but thats when i started collecting them, i had read them before that, but this is win i started collecting them, keeping whatever i bought and preserving them as neatly as i could.
Probably one of the best days in my life happened somewhere around 1978, my dad brought home a sack of comics, don't even remember where he got them, but it was a bunch of old Fantastic Fours, i think issues 32-64, some of the best comics ever done,and sue valuable ones, after that i was a serious collector. Especially Fantastic Four.My friend Willie also began collecting at about this time, we were both about 13 years old. He started collecting Spiderman, his earliest was spiderman 12, so it was a really good collection.
As it turned out a comic book store started in our neighborhood at this time, and we spent a lot of time there, though the place was really a front for the mob.
Now i have thousands of comics, and really don't know what to do with them, if anybody wants to buy my collection let me know, its everything between 1975 and 2000.Though i really don't want to sell it, but yo never know.
Anyway i will use his blog to talk about it and anything else going on in comics these days.
