Oct 2011. I collect purely DC's and focus mostly on silver age titles starring Superman and Superboy! I have completed Jimmy Olsen, Lois Lane, Superman Family, Superman 100-266, Adventure 266-380 and Superman Annual 1-8. My goal is to complete Superboy, Action Comics 250-414, World's Finest 85-225 and every Legion of Super-Hero appearance. I am less than ten books away from completing this chore that I started in 1984 (hey that rhymes!)
Superboy 1 will complete that run and I am not far away on the others either, except, well, a friend from England has been taunting me about my Adventure Comics collection (an easy thing to do when you have the finest silver age Adventure run on either side of the Atlantic). So I heve been picking up a few here and there. A very nice run of books that will ensure I never really am done buying comics!
You know, all of this would be easier if A) I didn't collect mid to high grade books and B) I had more money! As much as I love the comics, my wife loves the money I don't spend more than the money I do.
So, with all that being said, this collection has been a testament to keeping a goal in sight for...well decades...and keeping at it!
The books you see in my registry are just the ones I bought already slabbed or use my Collector's Society coupon for each year.
I have also taken on the fun task of upgrading a low grade Brave and the Bold run that was one of the first sets I went about completing. At one time I had 31-200, but mostly the issues below 120 were in the VG range. I have since replaced a few as you can see in the registry and acquired a mini grail of a sorts, a number one!
Oh...I also am a big fan of Sugar and Spike as well!
