About this journal

Good afternoon and welcome!

I wish I would have started an ongoing journal when I first got back into collecting full force in 2013. I've seen and have had so many great things. But no better time like the present. :smile: Please join me as I share my interests and never ending hunts for collectibles and comics. I'm from southern California. My main collecting interests are Comics, GI Joe, Transformers, and a few other cool things.

For what it's worth I am the founder of #IGComicFamily on instagram. Feel free to follow me there and mention you are from the boards. Always nice meeting new folks. :headbang:

My 2018 Wondercon Experience :-)

Hello It's been a little while since I've done a journal. A lot has changed, also a lot has stayed the same First off I would like to say thank you to CGC for their part in providing one of the best convention experience I've ever had! As a comic collector, for me when books are graded it is the final step of the journey of my books. I love the signature series program, and getting yellow labels is the cherry on top. Blue labels are awesome too and I enjoy having them both. This convention w

Crom Conan Statue Finished

For my entry in the journals here is my latest project. Conan 1 statue. I got this kit for my birthday a few months ago and recently have been doing some rearranging of my glass display cases so I figured I might as well start building this guy. A little background. I first saw this statue on an interview with Roy Thomas. I was like oh my I have to have it to display with my book. A little research and I found out it is a resin kit. A little bummed I have to build it but I'm up to the chall

Hulk 181 Grail Call

A book I've dreamed of owning since I was a kid. :-) It's been a little while since my last journal. I'm very proud to be able to add this book to my collection. It was one of those books I was feeling like it was becoming more and more out of my reach. Indeed when I got my ASM129 it was a choice between that book and a Hulk 181. As it turned out I'm very glad with how everything ended up falling into place. I got my ASM129 before the spike of the Daredevil season 2 announcements, and this yea

Beta Ray Bill

Classic 80s I got to admit it took a little while for me to warm up to this book. And is now one of my favorites. I saw this book sitting in the showcase of a nearby shop for a couple months. At first glance I just noticed the old bag and board it had been in. Then my next visit to the shop I had some key issue money to spend and decided to have this book taken out for a closer look. To my surprise it was extra minty. I told the shop owner I would take it. He told me this was from his original

From Blue to Yellow

2015 with the help and encouragement of a couple of really good friends my CGC collecting has evolved into more and more beautiful yellow labels My very first CGC book when I started collecting comics again in 2013 was getting a Spidey 1 platinum edition signed by Stan and Todd. I always loved that book from back in the day. How it was made exclusively for shops as a thank you with a limited print run and no ads. I was fortunate to come across my platinum edition at a great price so I figured

First Long Overdue Journal STORMSHADOW_80

I've been meaning to write a journal entry for some time now. I've been a member of the CGC boards for a couple years now posting here and there. I know some of you guys already and hope to meet more of you in the near future. Some of my buddies already post so many journals, and this hobby has been so great to me, I owe it to all of you to start posting up some journals to share some experiences I've had with collecting. My name is Art. I live in SoCal. I've been reading comics for as long
