Author Wanted to say hello (new member)
Posted: August 19, 2017 3:14:05 pm
I joined a few days back, and wanted to introduce myself to you all.

I'm a 23-year old from Indiana, and have been collecting comic books (for reading purposes) since I was around 11-years old. While I have only a modest collection of Marvel comics (under 1,000 individual issues still), I have a deep love for them.

Just earlier this week, I picked up Strange Tales #124 (Sept. 1964), and while it's not the oldest issue I own, I'm rather proud of it.

Anyhow, I simply wanted to say hi (I wasn't going to make my own thread, but I didn't see the harm), and briefly introduce myself.

Hope this finds you all well.

Welcome to the Realm, Mike. My oldest Strange Tales book is a very beat up and taped up copy of #114 that has the first Silver Age appearance of the Captain America character – i.e. not Steve Rogers – and it predates Avengers #4 by four months. Apparently ST#114 was used to gage the interest of readers to see if they wanted the original Cap to return. Take care and enjoy the site.

Hi Mike! Welcome to the Realm. Very cool comic you have there with your issue of Strange Tales. My oldest issue of Strange Tales is issue #1 and it is in Near Mint condition. Of course it is also from volume two and has a publishing date of April 1987 so there is that! Hope you enjoy it here!

Many thanks for the welcomes.

Bobarian, that seems a rather classic issue to own. My copy of issue #124 is in decent condition, but I've no doubt that as the years pass, and I read it multiple times, it'll get beat up a bit too.

Truth be told, I didn't know that about Strange Tales #114 - makes sense, though, and it worked. Not that long afterward (1968, if I recall), Captain America took over Tales of Suspense, and the rest is history.

Thanks to you, Tenzil, and gth08, for saying hello. Happy to be here.

Assuming that making a collection on here isn't that difficult, I very well may start that process within the next few days. While I don't have a plethora of older issues (pre-1975), I have decent runs of X-related titles (New Mutants, X-Force, Excalibur, etc.), so at the very least, it'd be nice to show off what little I have.Very Happy

Welcome to the Realm Mikey! The best little whoxx, err comic site, in Texas or anywhere.

Check out my collection. I have a ton of Silver & Bronze Marvels, all of which are open to offers, including a pretty full run of Strange Tales 101 through 188. Let me know if you are interested in any.
The joy is in the journey, not just the destination.

I am new sort of new here also. I signed up to the community about a year ago, but just started to really pay attention to the page and use it for organizing my collection.

So I guess that makes me new?

Do what now?
