  1. Maintenance (or - The Vicious Circle)

    on Jun 16, 2008 4:00:00 pm - 786 views | 4 comments
    Spending my day off bagging comics. Apparently, I haven't done any bagging for about 16 months. Love collecting comics, but MAN do I get behind on that stuff. And then, after bagging them - I need to file them. Which means shifting boxes of comics to make room for the new ones. I stopped re-bagging my already bagged comics (like the experts recommend doing) a couple of...

  2. comic reader vs. comic collector

    on Jun 16, 2008 12:35:00 am - 791 views | 7 comments
    To me this is a very different thing. comic readers actually read comics!!! comic collectors just have them for investment or art. collecting started in the late sixties but didn't catch on until the 80's which led to the crash of the comic industry. i myself am a comic reader AND collector. i read all my comics especially my grails. i love the stories in the GA/...

  4. Milehigh comics super sale

    Events here in Colorado have just become overwhelming for me, however, with an endless series of meetings now set up to search for solutions to the flooding damage that occurred at our Thornton, Colorado Mega-Store. In case you missed the announcement in last Sunday's newsletter, a high-pressure water main burst in the back of our largest store on Friday evening....

  5. Origin Story, Part 2 (or - histoire d'origine, partie deux)

    on Jun 14, 2008 2:05:00 pm - 706 views | 2 comments
    In the summer of 1983, I was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. I was 10 going on 11. I won’t bore you with too many details. That’s partly because I don’t know a lot; but mainly because this is about comics, dagnabbit! I grew up in a small town, so of course, with all the benefit dances and fundraisers people were holding to help my...

  6. Tim Russert died

    on Jun 13, 2008 3:15:00 pm - 2116 views | 2 comments
    I am not saying that I am a huge fan of his...but you know what I am human and it is sad when people of his "stature" die unexpectedly (especially if you start thinking it was a conspiracy theory). One of the wonders (I guess you can call it that) of today's modern age is Wikipedia . It is almost comical how quickly it is updated when something occurs. Heck I...

  7. brief interlude (or - we interrupt this program . . .)

    on Jun 13, 2008 2:30:00 pm - 716 views | 4 comments
    I fully intended to continue my reminiscing today; however, when I got to work, I was told I have an online training thing to do. Yay, team! Anyway – I did want to give a brief update. I did, indeed, reach the 10,000 comic milestone with today’s trip to the LCS. It did occur to me, though, that – if I still had every comic I’ve ever...

  8. Origin Story, Part 1 (or - What the hell happened?!!)

    on Jun 12, 2008 5:40:00 pm - 740 views | 4 comments
    As of tomorrow, I'll have passed the 10,000 comic mark. In true comicbook fashion – a milestone like this deserves a telling of the origin story. So, without further Apu . . . I can’t remember a time where I didn’t know about superheroes. As a kid, I devoured reruns of the 1966 Batman TV series. I also enjoyed the Superfriends (because, hey –...

  9. The Incredible Hulk Pre-Screen Review

    on Jun 10, 2008 7:40:00 am - 2173 views | 0 comments
    Ok so the Mrs. and I were able to check out a sneak preview of the Hulk which comes out this friday. One thing I have learned about these sneak previews is that my time should be worth more than $4 an hour - the price of a movie ticket ($8) divided by the number of hours spent waiting for the movie to start (2). This screening was packed...probably 550 with them...
