    Hello fellow comic book nerds! I know I am not the only one on the forum so I figured I would start a thread dedicated to comic book lovers/collectors. Feel free to show what you have, talk about your favorite characters, sell or even opt to trade!

    As for myself, I started collecting when I was about 9 or 10 when my Grandfather took me to my first comic book shop. Of course my favorites ending up being X-men and Spiderman, but I also loved other characters; Deathlok, Avengers, Venom, etc.. Luckily, when I was young my uncle was also into comics and lead me down the path of collecting and properly preserving the comics to keep them in good condition for years to come. As I have gotten older and funds allow, I have concentrated more on the silver (1956-1970) and bronze age (1970-1985) of marvel books for the first appearances and origins of my favorite characters. The set I am currently working on is the Secret Wars from 1984 and I am trying to have them all Near Mint or better. Currently out of the set of 12, I have 1-3, 6, 8, and 10. I have also decided to try and have a full set of Amazing Spiderman 1-700. This will obviously be extremely hard, but will be awesome when complete and I have nothing but time to try and do so.

    To get the show aspect of the thread started, below you will see some of my favorites of my collection. I may also have some I am willing to trade / sell, but lets see how this goes first.

    Uncanny Xmen 12; first appearance of Juggernaut
    [​IMG]

    Amazing Adventures 11; Beasts further mutation and first fur covered appearance.
    [​IMG]

    X-Factor 6; First appearance of Apocalypse

    A few others in a group photo. Spectacular Spiderman 1, Web of Spiderman 1, Amazing spiderman 121; death of Gwen Stacy, amazing spiderman 122 death of 1st green goblin, daredevil 168; first appearance of elektra, Wolverine 1, amazing spiderman 300; first appearance of Venom
    [​IMG]

    Uncanny Xmen 266; first appearance of Gambit
    [​IMG]

    The New Mutants 87; first appearance of Cable
    [​IMG]

    Those a few. I could keep going, but I'll spare you. Haha. So let's see what you got or chat about any characters!

    So much. So many. Will have to start going through them in the next few months. Expect to see lots.

    Been into the books since I was a kid. Dad was a huge collector. Have a lot of really old books. Some really nice expensive ones.

    Marvel > DC.

    And I've always read Batman comics. Especially the Detective Comics. City of Owls is amazing.
