I've not used this blog function before so this is a test. I do have my own blog (version 3 or 4, I forget) at my own site that is for my own pleasure. I don't talk comic books there but I just may start.
I've been a member of Comic BookRealm for 2 1/2 years now, a lifetime member. This site was just what I needed when I decided to start cataloging and selling my comics. Except I haven't sold any. I dug out 40 or so long boxes from storage. I bought shelves. I bought bags and boards to replace old bags that were yellowing. I bought more boxes. I now have 50 boxes all cataloged in ComicBookRealm and I'm trying to put a cap on the buying. No more $150+ online orders, no more 10+ pull list at the local comic store.
I've been collecting regularly since 1982 with many muitl-year breaks in between. Lately the stories just aren't grabbing me. Oh there are a few here and there but I find myself skim reading more and more comics. And the art has gotten really bad on a number of books. I don't care if my favorite writer is on the book, if the art is shit I won't buy it.
