Set Description

I started collecting Wolverine comic books when I was twelve years old. During this time in my personal life, I began a journey of overcoming many hardships & adversities, which if I were to share with most people, they would be astonished as to how I went from being a ninth grade drop-out in the City of Rochester, NY, to an adjunct professor at a well-respected university in New York City! Hence, the name "Professor Pecora" is more than just a CGC Board Name; just as the name of this set, "Against All Odds" has significant meaning - as it represents the quest towards becoming the best ... regardless of the challanges or obstacles in my way!

With that said, I present to you ... "Against All Odds!"

This set contains high-resolution scans of both the front & back of every book registered! You don't see this often, as most collectors will simply scan the front cover only (unless it is a wraparound cover or if it contains a back cover pin-up), but I figured there is a "back scan slot" for a reason. For me, it shows how our culture has developed throughout 1.5 decades from 1988-2003! You can view the advertisements and witness how the rise of technology has influenced our American culture. Also, certain ads can spark specific memories of commercials and times in which one was growing up as an adolescent, that is ... if you were born in the late 70's or early 80's as I was.

On that note, as you browse through, please enjoy the vibrant colors of the scanned images and the individual commentary specific to each Wolverine issue.

Some of the key highlights of this set include eleven (11) Signature Series books graded as a 9.8 or higher. Of these SS gems, the first five issues have all been signed by Stan "The Man" Lee! Moreover, my copy of issue #1 is currently the only CGC SS 9.9 in the world! Another noteworthy highlight is owning a Wolverine #145 Nabisco Variant Cover CGC SS 9.8, that displays a rare Wolverine head sketch drawn by the cover artist, Mr. Bill Sienkiewicz!

This set is a work in progress, but is sure to break into the top 3 ranked sets in the near future!

Thanks for visiting - and I hope that you enjoy your personal tour through the A.A.O. Gallery!
