How many comics do you have in your collection

Recommended Posts

I just reached about 6500 books in my collection. It grows easily by 100-150 books a month, that is if I dont go to any cons. There are a wide range of books but I have larger comic runs in Captain America (my fav) Batman, Spider-man, Xmen and punisher. How many do you have in your collection? While or what is your favorite to collect?

Holy crap that seems like a lot of comics! Where do you store them all?

My "collection" hasn't changed much since 1984, and I didn't have all that many then. Most of them are bagged. My hope is that my son who is 11 now and I will go through them someday and find one or two have "popped". I remember being talked into the New Mutants when they first came out, but seems like their values never increased. The rest are randoms, most Avengers and Fantastic Four I suppose. I have a few golden oldies like a Seventh Voyage of Sinbad or something like that are over 50 years old. You never know.

Actually, I have a daughter who works for Dynamite Comics. She's seen some good stuff, has met some interesting people (Alice Cooper). She was just at another comic con this weekend. She has some nice older "first appearance" stuff, mostly Batman. I got her the first appearance of Poison Ivy for example.

Batman 181 is on my wish list of books. 

I will have to take a pic of my collection when I get home. But they take up some room. In fact we just moved and I was thinking I need to get rid of the ones i have already reviewed and didnt like. 

Here is a link to my old room tour

That's awesome man!  My "office" is such a friggin' mess.  I have a feeling it will be a while before it gets presentable.  I don't have a balcony either 😞

That's awesome to have that man cave Huey. Wish I was able to have my own as well. 

My girlfriend keeps telling me that I need one since it's always been my bedroom and after she moved in, she wasn't so excited about my late night gaming expeditions (plus I hesitate to get on comms as I don't want to disrupt her). Oh another 4 years and hopefully one child will be off to college.....and hopefully then I can reclaim some space....maybe...

It was a long wait for me too. Luckily I have a wife who is totally cool with my hobby and give me my own space
