LOVE me some chromium covers

I took a small break from buying lately.  Other hobbies need some love to...it's all about balance right? lol

I nabbed a couple Ebay auctions to get some wants off my list.   Adding to my addiction of the gatefold/prism/embossed/etc. covers, I nabbed a lot of various 90's goodness of Ebay....some I forgot about long ago. Nothing special, but they help feed the addiction ;)

Last week Friday (FINALLY.....slow shipping seller) I received a bundle of comics I had won on Ebay.  163 issues of X-Title goodness.   I got lucky as it was a solid deal, with some books I had really wanted to check out, and some to replace my old long gone collection.

Another SOLID deal with brownies8701 (always a pleasure) brought me some early 90's Image books...plus lot's of extras for my youngest kid slowly getting into comics.  Plus a few cheap nabs from one of the local Half Price Books...

I just received my bundle from brownies8701.  I can't say enough kind things about this cat, awesome prices, condition was as good/better than stated, great communication, SUPERB packing job...the REAL DEAL.

 

Plus LOOK at all this goodness I got, X-Men GALORE!!  A smattering of Valiant added for good measure (while Magnus is one of my favorite characters of all time, the X-series are more of a priority for now).

In the early 90's, my hobbies consisted of video games, comics, and baseball.  Out of theblue the comics world decided that "hey kids (like me) like baseball cards, we want some of that action. 


Out comes one of the most addictive cards ever... Marvel Universe, then Marvel Masterpieces, X-Men, and also Valiant (among others) jumped on the bandwagon.   Now were these the first comic nook based cards, no, but for my generation they were foil wrapped CRACK.  I'd honestly be scarred to add up all the time, and $ spent on these thru the years, but getting back into comics reminded me about these long lost treasure.

I grew up with comics.  As a very young kid, I wandered into my attic, and found a BIG box of my dads comics.  It was a treasure trove...old Gold Key Solar Man of the Atom, Magnus Robot Fighter, Thor, X-Men, Avengers, Dr. Strange etc, etc.  I read, and re-read this mountain of greatness many times over, learning more as I went.

 

Fast forward a few years, and I start buying my own comics at a local shop (that actually STILL exists).  It's slow going as even back when comics were a LOT cheaper, $ was also harder to come by as a kid.  I mainly stick with the X-Men titles until the late 80's/early 90's.   Marvel's reboot is ON. SO many variant issues (X-Men, Spiderman, X-Force)...then the Marvel Masterpiece card line comes out...I can't get enough.  Slowly but steady, the growing variant craze, story arcs that run loner/include more series, prices climbing, the start of Valiant, and Image just spread the time/$ WAY to thin...and I drop out of comics.
