Ya know, it's funny; most people only think of New Jersey as a suburb of New York but it's really very pretty country. :thumbsup2:

"Unaware" might be a better way to describe someone who has never been there. "Ignorant" would be better for someone who has, but still thinks of it as simply a 'burb.

Victoria, Australia. I started reading Marvel comics in the late 60's into the mid 70's. After its rapid expansion of titles, I felt a loss in quality in the art. With the inevitable price rises (to 25c!!) it was all over for me around 1974-75.
The last 15 years or so I've spent re-visiting my childhood heroes.
Good fun.

Hey PJ, got any of these? I stumbled across them years ago and I had to buy at least one. Thickest comic I have (at least until I get some of those EC annuals).

Why are some comic collectors so proud to have fake OCD? Is it cool to pretend to be mentally ill?

Hi all thought I would come over here and look around.
The truth will always be known, you just need to know where to look.

Yes, welcome! It's kinda quiet around here, but we're a friendly bunch. Not much in the way of money talk around here. While some of us dabble in sales, we seem to be primarily collectors.

Glad to have you aboard!
