More Christmas gifts from a friend of mine who lives in my hometown of Greenwich. Two Batman comics and one Superman comic. One of these comics is autographed by the authors. "The Breaking of The Batman" is autographed. I never thought I would become a comic book collector but I'm thinking of starting.
For some reason, I find myself reading comics and graphic novels more. I don’t know why. I guess my interest in comics is growing. When I was a kid, I used to be a comic collector but I stopped for a long while. I’m thinking about getting back into them. Those three comics above were a gift from a friend of mine for Christmas. Never thought I would become a comic book collector but I thought I would finally get into them. Goal for 2017?
I could start buying comics and graphic novels online like amazon and Ebay maybe. I could also start buying them from the Comic Depot store in Saratoga Springs. I would like to start collecting mostly Batman & Superman stuff ’cause I’m a huge fan of both Batman & Superman. Why would I want to start collecting comics? Well most importantly, I like the stories so I’ll probably buy them to read. A lot of die-hard collectors like to collect them just to have them as a collector’s item ’cause they think they maybe worth something. Yeah, they could be worth something but I’ll just buy them ’cause I like the stories, ya know? I love Batman & Superman stories.
If I were to start buying comics again would I buy comics of other superheroes too? Maybe but not a whole lot. For Marvel comics, I would read the Punisher ’cause I love the Punisher. I love the Wolverine so I would read a lot of his comics too. I was never a big comic book reader but I should start.
As far as Batman goes, I’m becoming a huge Batman addict lately. I just love the stories and characters. I’ll try to get into more comics this year ’cause for some reason I find myself reading them more. Reading comics is actually pretty cool.
