For those that have followed this blog for a few months, you know that my LCS recently reduced its sports cards inventory. The owner still buys a few boxes of each new Topps product, but mostly he concentrates on comic books. I have been going to that shop for about 2 years now, and I just realized the devious genius that is the owner. For two years he cultivated a relationship of friendship with me, paying special attention to my wants. His generosity has been documented in former posts. But I realized that was all a guise. He saw me as prey and he has now pounced.
I am a collector. Aside from cards, I collect books, movies, LPs, and now comics. Yes, I have fallen victim to the collecting bug once again. Over the past few visits to Collector’s Den, I have acquired a growing pile of comic books.
I really only have two interests when it comes to collecting comic books. The 1st is The Incredible Hulk. As long as I can remember, the Hulk has been my favorite comic book character. For reasons that will be examined later, he has fascinated to me. I can’t help but grab a handful of books for $1 a piece.
My other interest is Thor. His origins and storylines have so appealed to me, that my son is named after him. I now collect these comics in hopes that when he gets old enough, my son will want to take over this collection.
Starting this thursday, or more accurately, Thor’s day, I will have a post every thursday about my growing comic book collection.
