surfer99's Bio
Born and raised in California over 40 years ago (seriously, has it been that long?!?). Moved to Arizona 20 years ago, cause I can take the heat (it hit a record 122 degrees that year)! Married to my loving wife for 22 years (as of 2013) and have two boys ages 14 and 16. Pets are now down to two dogs and a conure (the bunny, fish and cat died and we had to give the corn snake away). I'm a born again Christian (as canned as that term has become) and I live my life by two principles- love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind, soul and strength; and love your neighbor as yourself (first one's easy, it's that second one that can be challenging). Romans 1:16

I got into comics when I was 17 and a friend of mine gave me a few Silver Surfer comics for my birthday. I've been hooked ever since. Nowadays I'm primarily focused on high grade Bronze Age appearances of the X-men outside their own title, particularly during the time between teams (X-men #67-#93).

Current "Top 10" list in my collection:
1. Amazing Adventures #11
2. Amazing Spider-man #92
3. Marvel Team-Up #4
4. Marvel Tales #30
5. Fantastic Four #104
6. Avengers #110
7. Avengers #111
8. Daredevil #111
9. Incredible Hulk #181
10. Giant-Size X-men #1
