Current Status on my comic sets.

Snapshot: 2/28/09

Well, it's been a slow go since my last update. Probably the biggest movement has been a 2,000 increase in my HOM set (with only a 4% improvement towards completion) and a BIG jump on my Ghosts set (78% to 91% completion) and Witching Hour set (70% to 83% completion).

Snapshot 1/18/08

Well, I've compared my status from below in 6/07...here are the updated stats. The percentage completion is misleading b/c I've done a lot of upgrading of existing issues...which is why I'll be tracking points as well from this point forward.

-------------------------------------------

Wow! It doesn't seem like I've been collecting Bronze Age Horror comics for over four years, but I have. I've had lots of highs and lows, and I've had much success in upgrading many issues in my collection.

One of the things I've found is that you must realize that this is a marathon, and you can't sprint like this is a 100yard dash. Retrospectively, I used to find myself impatient in acquiring books because "they won't turn up again" only to see more around the corner. I've learned to be patient to ensure that I get the right book "at the right price".

Anyway, this is my status of completing most of my horror sets. Wish me luck...I think I can almost see the finish line from here.
