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. Recently though, I am realizing how much I enjoy and have great admiration for Gold Key & Dell/Four Color cover art!!

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 really enjoying picking up Gold Key One shots and TMNTs. I think its due to different layers of nostalgia currently....gets me every time:)

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