Have you ever read a a course in miracles I imagine just about everyone, at some time in their life, has read at least one comic book. But do your interests and enjoyment level go beyond that? You may have said to yourself, at sometime or another, I would like to start a comic book collection some day. Heck, you may even have several comic books lying
around that you have just never organized.
What do I do to start a comic book collection and what all do I need? Well, as I am sure
you realize, you need to start with a passion. You have a passion, you say, but you don’t
want to be labeled a “comic book geek” and remain alone in your enjoyment. Well, my
suggestion to you is “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff” and believe me, you are not alone.
You would be amazed at the multitudes of individuals who have a passion for comic
books. And there are a plethora of related sites on the Web.
I couldn’t get enough of these colorful action-packed little devils when I was young. But
like any supposedly responsible individual, I lay my passion aside when I got older and
when to college and got a good job. Well in the last several months, I have rekindled that
childhood passion and have spent a good share of my time researching and creating my
own comic book website. And what a rush it has been reintroducing myself to myself. I
am finding quite an avid interest in all the new comic book hero movies Hollywood is
cranking out. I have even started my own comic book hero DVD collection. And this is
big business, so I know there are throngs of people out there with my same interests and I
hope to connect with many of them through my website.
I ran into a major thrill the other day glancing through the want ads of my local
newspaper. Lo and behold, someone was selling a comic book collection. A quick call
and a meeting in the shopping mall parking lot and I was the proud owner of 189 comic
books kept in beautiful condition. And get this; it cost me $50.00 for the whole
collection. I have as yet to determine the actual worth of the collection, but it has got to
be substantially more than what I paid for it. As time goes on, I will be organizing all of
them in a spreadsheet and using my trusty copy of the Overstreet Comic Book Price
Guide to determine my new collection’s total worth. As I do that, I will be reporting
results on my website.
