Using DCU to identify chronology and first appearances and specific collections has been one of the greatest pleasures of this service! It’s like we’re all working together to roll up our sleeves and clean up all this history into a beautiful card catalog.

I definitely collect just for the stories and don’t care about the worth of them at all So simplistic for me. Although I will collect different covers for display purposes. I started buying some digital ones when tablets were allowed at work, but then they were banned so I’m back to buying old fashioned paper books!
These also look good on ye olde bookshelf!
I’ve got some comics I want graded but it seems expensive.
Yeah, when I buy new stuff, I tend to get trades. I’m already having trouble with space for new teen titans.
I guess it depends on what you want to do with them- like what this gentleman is saying, it’s ideal if you want to resell but if you don’t NEED that it can wait
I mostly go for collected issues now. Digital too—saves space.
I might just cover the walls of my house in comic covers and sweet, sweet posters from DCU
It’s a hard life
@Applejack absolutely! Its really brought back a lot of nostalgic feelings and its brought me back to the core of why i fell in love with DC as a kid in the first place.
Im heading out…I enjoyed spending almost all day here!!!
Yeah. I can wait, but I am very curious what my comics would grade.
Thank you so much for joining DG_TBFW, if nothing else you were hooked into DCU’s exposé on Dick Grayson’s…assets! Have a great rest of your night
Why thank you, Captain.
You know what I notice DC Universe is now officially 2 years old!
Speaking of old comics, I have some from the '70s and they’re in remarkably good condition. It really IS amazing considering how delicate they are.
I am much more of a trades person myself these days then single issues. I think the only series that I have every issue of are Manhunter and the main Princess Amethyst series, the maxi, minis, and special. Otherwise I don’t think I have any other complete runs. Oh wait, just remembered I have all of Countdown and 52.
Ooh, here comes the good stuff.
