Comic Books and my 40 Year History of Reading Superheroes and Funny Pages

How I Learned to Stop Being a Collector and to Start Enjoying my Collection

I’m a collector, a visit to my toy room is all it takes to see that.  I’m a collector of toys, movies, books and comic books, games and video games.  As a collector though I often lose out on much of the enjoyment of the exact things I’m collecting.  As a child I played with … Read more
