"I need your clothes, your boots, and your motorcycle"

Had a small collection from my youth, but dove back in head first June 2018. Now going after the entire Hulk legacy run (among others).

March 2023




I don’t remember exactly what my first comic book was. I do know that some of my earliest books were masterpieces like Blue Beetle and Son of Ambush Bug. Not exactly classics, but those books got me hooked on a brand new hobby.

i couldn’t get enough. As soon as I had a couple of bucks in my pocket, I headed to the mall, Paper Tiger usually, and grabbed up whatever I could. This was the mid 80s, and I was in my early teens. My town would eventually get a comic book shop, but that hadn’t happened yet, so off to the bookstore I went. Every time, it felt like there was a new title I should grab, and pretty soon it led to what I can only assume happens to a lot of kids that age...insufficient funds!

I started selling off items to my friends, just to keep up my “habit”. Selling things I never should have sold! G.I. Joe and Transformer toys, and even some of my *gasp* comics! It had become a monster that was consuming its own tail! I couldn’t keep this up! But being a teenager with a self assessed IQ of 752, I knew what was best, and just kept the train rolling. Before I knew it, my collection had been picked over by my friends, and I was left with the scraps. That was a bit disheartening, and my love of comics started to wane.
