1st Comic was a Thor book

Entry posted by RayJr · - 255 views

My very first comic book was Thor #282. My stepdad got it for me when I was 5 going on 6 in April 1979. I was fascinated with the stories of Asgard and continued collecting Thor until I joined the Army January 5th, 1993. A lot of my collection was lost except for Thor #282. I started back up collecting comics in the Summer of 2000. Last year I sent my beloved book in to CGC to get pressed and graded. It came back a 9.0. I was very happy with the grade considering how long I have had that book in my possession.

9.0 is great since back then CGC was even thought of and to get white pages too.

Thanks Rockblazer. I can't wait to get back from Afghanistan in December to start sending in my whole Thor collection to get graded to see what I get.
