Icculus308win's Bio
--------------------------------------------------
I collect 9.4s or better and strive only* ow/w or better pages pre 1979…..
(Certain Dell and Four Color books are making that pretty damnn tough to achieve! Especially that of Ben Bowie and Smokey Bear - so hard to find in HG, let alone with ow/w or better pq!!)
…...Post 1980, I collect at least 9.6s with again, at least ow/w pages. And yes I have a tad bit of OCD.


I am a Marvel fan & collector. Daredevil being my favorite. My Father was a TOS fan (Sgt. Rock was his favorite) and I easily gravitated to it. In 5th grade Wolverine was the first comic I had a subscription to and began to actively collect.
Past several years, the power of nostalgia definitely has driven my collecting. Wether GA, SA and Copper so many memories with family, friends or alone time revolved at times around comics.
More recently with the advent of the 2012 TMNT cartoon series. All 5 seasons were watched and loved by my boys. Couple that with, again nostalgia of my affinity for all things TMNT growing up in the early/mid 80s - it was off to the races for me and recollecting in a sense - TMNT books.

Without a doubt, I have a lot of love for DC (who doesn't like Batman!?!?) and much respect for some other Publishers with their creators, artists, writers and great characters.
For instance - the Best CARTOON Ever, a MOUNTAIN Man, the most famous BEAR ever who does NOT play with matches, "ONE SHOTS" and a TOTALLY TUBULAR Group Of 9.8 Terrapins - have helped me venture out of my Marvel collecting bubble quite a bit past couple years!
My "Golden Year" of comics is without a doubt 1964!
Four of my favorite characters grace the covers of comic books for their first time that year: Daredevil, Jonny Quest, Hawkeye, and the sexy Black Widow.

I seem to gravitate in my collecting trends to: 1st three appearances or just 1st appearances, 1st & 2nd origins, particular cover art I'm drawn to, 1st own titles and than small runs of stories I was captivated with or artwork I was enchanted by in my youth or now discovering for the first time in my life.
As of late, I'm still really enjoying picking up Gold Key One shots and TMNTs.

Thank-you for taking the time to read my BIO, happy viewing, happy reading & HAPPY COLLECTING!!
