I started reading comics again around the time of Civil War and recently started collecting some titles. Nearing 2,000 comics.
I’m new on here so I figured I’d do a bit of an intro of myself and my comic book collection for anyone that cares.
I started getting into comics when I was 13 or so like most people. A while back I started getting into comics again and currently I get a fair amount of new books each month. I was mostly into Spider-Man and the X-Men as a kid and both still remain my favorites. When I got back into comics it was a bit before Civil War so when Civil War came out, the amount of titles I got grew.
Recently, I have become more interested into collecting and getting back issues of some of my favorites to try and get complete collections of these titles. Again I haven’t been getting back issues to add to my collection for that long and I’m still looking for a better job so I only have so much money to spend on comics.
My goal right now is getting comics that came out when I was a kid which I loved and got me into comics. My current goal is collecting all of the X-Men vol. 2 title that came out in the 90s. Right now I have a fair amount and I’m going to keep chipping away getting a few each month until I can get every issue. Eventually, I plan on doing that with the Amazing Spider-Man and the Uncanny X-Men titles. It might be too lofty of a dream to get every issue of those two but I want to at least get the issues from the late 80s until now.
I know about the rating system on comics to a degree when it comes to if its near mint, very fine etc but I’m not too particular about that right now. I’m collecting comics because I like to read them and I love the characters. I’m not looking to get comics just because some of them are valuable. I just care that my comics are in pretty good condition meaning no cuts, tears, wrinkles or folds etc. I myself make it a priority to take good care of all my comics. I have been bagging and boarding comics since I have been reading them and I have them all pretty well organized in comic boxes.
So I just wanted to give a bit of info about myself and what I’m looking to do as far as collecting. I’d loved to chat about comics and collecting with anyone that wants to. I talk to some of my buddies that seem interesting in what’s going on with certain characters and the marvel universe but I don’t have any friends that are into comics like I am. I’m going to leave my list of what titles I read each month below for anyone that cares.
Amazing Spider-Man, Uncanny X-Men, X-Men: Legacy, X-Men, Wolverine (still Dark Wolverine), Avengers, New Avengers, Secret Avengers, Captain America, Invincible Iron Man, Thunderbolts. Just recently added: Daredevil, Fantastic Four and trying New Mutants. Also getting: Shadowland and Avengers Prime.
