About this journal

I have been on a quest really for the past 3 years to complete not only my Vampirella run, but my Creepy and Eerie run as well. I have had a lot of help along the way, bounty_coder, deadone , wolverine180, jayman, wombat. More people than I could ever mention. I want to thank you all for enlightening me to this new area of comic collecting, it has been a ton of fun so far.

My Warren Vampirella

I have alway been a superhero kinda guy , that is until I was introduced to Warren Horror mags. Now I have always appreciated Frank Frazetta, but I always thought this book was outta my reach. I mean there's not a ton of these out there in high grade, but through crazy luck a board member told me about one for sale. Board member October sold me this beauty, and I know I've shown it off before . Just wanted to get it in with my other Warren books. Vampirella 1 to me is the Action 1 of horror mags , and I am proud to have this book in my collection. Here is the very rare in any grade Vampirella U.K. 1-4

My Warren Eerie collection

Starting my Warren Eerie run. Hopefully you guys enjoy my journey as I fill in this run. For starters here's the famous Eerie 1 ashcan, this however is the bootleg one. Here is Eerie #2 which in  my opinion is a solid 9.6, just a perfect book. Eerie #3 Manitoba pedigree , another perfect high grade beauty. Eerie #5 signed by Al Williamson, and another NM beauty book. You magazine collectors know how much harder it is to find NM magazines than their comic book cousins. Here's a very hard book to find in NM in Eerie #7 DeadOne mentioned he had a few Eeries for me to look at, and he wasn't kidding. So without further ado.

footsteps

me,myself and I I was adopted at birth,my real mother 15 my father 16 which was'nt too cool in 1964 .My adoptive parents were the only parents I had known my whole life.until age 32.my adoptive parents had both passed away at this time. A man comes to my door and says he's my uncle and here is the number to call him ? I call and he tells me that my real mother had been looking for me for years,and was afraid to call,but if I want to call here's the number.So I call and oh boy what an emotional rollercoaster ride.I fly to Texas to meet my mom and brother and sister(full blood)and what seemed like hundreds of relatives,it was so overwhelming.I'm so glad I had my wife was there for support.I felt whole,all the guessing of who my mom was is over! So now I wanted to meet my father, my sister pointed me in the right direction,and had to trick him to meet him.I just showed up at his door. He tells me that I was not his son NOT HIS SON? I knew from the moment I saw him that he was my father!I did'nt think he would be my best friend.I just wanted him to acknowledge me as his son but no.I'm telling you this because today my father had shot himself in the head,commited suicide.The ultimate goodbye.I will never be able to try to mend that fence.I always hoped that someday he would call me just to say Hi son,how are you doing.
