Hi everyone, time to finally jump in. I'm George, I finished my ASM + AF #15 run last year! That was my big collecting goal. I also collect and read mostly Marvel Silver Age and The Walking Dead. In the last year i have been reading Golden Age Human Torch, Marvel Mystery Comics, All-Winners and pre-code horror.
I'm 38 and I started reading comics at age 7 when my father gave me some FF and Thor books that he enjoyed as a kid. I fell in love with spidey after I read Kraven's Last Hunt (I wore those books out). I stopped reading after McFarlane's run on Spidey and took an 18yr hiatus as there were too many X books and I didn't enjoy the early Image Comics.
Five years ago I had a renewed interest in this fantastic hobby (or lifestyle) you can choose the wording. I have been soaking up some of your comments and insight like a sponge, I hope to learn more about adding and upgrading to my collection from some of the masters in the hobby. My collecting goals over the next year are to add a Tales of Suspense #39 mid-grade, either upgrade one of my 4.5 AF #15's or add one more mid-grade and start an All-Winners run(I love that series)!
Thank you gentlemen, I look forward to hearing from some of you.
