Does anyone have an very extensive comic book collections they would like to humbly brag about?
Seems we are a rare breed and im verry new to the hobby. I have a few new DC comics im especialy proud of. My wife is interested in collecting Batman 50 virgin covers/ variants/ signatures. she just scooped up a Catwoman in gown virgin cover.
That looks awesome I have a decent amount from various timelines but no specific special ones, I mostly created a collection by just wanting to read them.
we usually just read on here or mu. we do buy and read graphic novels. but for comics we buy specific copy’s or blind box to hunt tresure.
I typically read the graphic novels that are collection of comics do you have any recommendations?
Well I have been collecting for 45 years so I think I qualify. using the free time to try to organize it just a little better. the fun part is finding cool books I forgot about.
Mine is kind of a mess right now too, I think I may organize it too, how large is it?
honestly I couldn’t even tell you at this point. I stopped counting at 9000 and that was a couple of years ago. most of my time is now collecting original artwork which I have around 400 pages.
That’s pretty impressive!
I just took these photos to post on another thread a couple days ago. I built this a couple years ago. You can actually buy cabinets like this with drawers that are stackable. Mine are a little more heavy duty and I built them to fit in that closet. By no means do I have my own pedigree here but I do have some really cool silver age comics. I’ll probably post some pics of the stuff I think is really interesting.
Btw I don’t usually see people post images of older comics or toys on dcu. I’m not sure why. I’m not saying it means anything just an observation. Or maybe a question why? I love seeing what other people have in their “vintage” collection.
I have my little slice of comic book heaven! I need more board and bags Plus a new long box image|375x500
That’s amazing do you ever want to display it?
Mine looks like that minus the pops, respect!
I do too none of mine are really vintage but I’m interested.
I really like that file cabinet / drawer / shelves.
I need something like this for the books at the house.
I don’t have a lot of older DC Comics but I have this one thing that’s pretty cool. It’s a lower grade run of justice league 1-34 plus brave and the bold 29. I’m on the scout for a 28 but I can’t spend a mortgage payment on a comic book right now . I’ll pick up a 30 at some point too
The 7 and the 13 are in tatters. The 1 is vg ish. Most of them are in the G-VG range.
I’m open for business!
