Spector's Comic Book Blogs

  • Spector | Male | 47 years old | LA

"“I don't wear white to hide myself. I wear it so they'll see me coming. So they'll know who it ..."

Collector for the sheer passion, as comics have had such an impact on my life. 3rd time around doing so and by far the greatest experience of them all. Lover of Silver Age, but have come around to bronze and dabble in the rest.

One day she was going to a different supermarket that we had never been to before.  Food Warehouse.  "Do they have comics?" I asked.  "I really don't know", she replied.  The possibility was more than enough for me to make that ride.

I had $2 to spend, once finding the spinning racks, and I wanted to make it count.  After going back and forth between probably 20 choices, I narrowed it down to 3 books.
