Comic Book Collecting, I Canít Get Enough!

-- Tuesday, 04 April 2006

Have you ever read a comic book before? 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 comic book
collecting some day. Heck, you may even have several comic
books lying around that you have just never organized.

What do I do to start comic book collecting and what all do
I need? Well, as I am sure you realize, you need to
with a passion. You have a comic book collecting passion,
you say, but you don't want to be labeled a "comic book
collecting 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 book
collecting. 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 comic book collecting
passion aside when I got older and went 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
collecting 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 comic book
collecting interests and I hope to connect with many of
them through my comic book collecting 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 comic book
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 these comic book collecting items in a
spreadsheet and using my trusty copy of the Overstreet
Comic Book Collecting Price Guide to determine my new comic
book collection's total worth. As I do that, I will be
reporting results on my website.

Through all my research over the last many months, I have
even created an ebook product on how to start comic book
collecting, which is filled with Internet resources. I want
to have an inexpensive resource available to help others,
with the same passion I have, to get started. If you care
to see what the book is about, you can check it out at

and let me know what you think.

When you start your comic book collecting, you will need to
start thinking about sources to purchase your comic books
from. You will want to start learning about comic book
supplies to help preserve and organize your magazines. You
will want to learn how the rest of the industry goes about
grading physical condition and what your individual comics
are worth. Personally though, I believe some of the
greatest worth in a comic book is what it means to you and
the enjoyment you receive from owning these little pieces
of art. You may even what to find where all the great comic
book conventions are and if there are any close to you. All
of this information is available on the Net and I am hoping
to build a central hub to all this other great info.

Want to start comic book collecting? Come on over and visit
me. Kick your shoes off and stay for a while. I don't think
you will be disappointed. You may even want to bookmark my
site. Have something of value you want me to add or a
question that needs an answer? I am all ears. So start
scanning the want ads and I will see you at my site. Flame
on! Or was that "Up, Up and Away"?
