Comix, how I love thee

...let me count the ways.

Ever since my dad threw away my comic collection away (or gave it away-same shit) my life hasn't been the same. Sure I could forgive him pawning my PS1 off to my "cousin" when I left home, or giving my Pikachu sheddup! assorted stuffed lovelies to my other "cousin", but man, when he gave my comics away to some damn charity simply because he didn't know when I "was going to come pick up this trunk full of paper" I lost a bit of my mind and I might add...a bit of my soooo-ul, as well.

*sniffle yes, cry with me folks, because it was a sad day, indeed.

I was so pissed that I vowed never to talk to him again.

Then, the next day I asked to borrow $20 for money at school, so you can see how that went.

Anyway, my point is, I have decided to collect comics again. I don't care if they are mint, or very good, or even down-right ragged. I just want to see pictures and correlating text and feel like a kid again.

Is that too much to ask for?????

I didn't think so.

So I log onto Ebay saturday morning and I have been perusing auctions ever since and I have already won 4 huge kickin' lots of comics ranging from the X-men to the New Teen Titans. Some collections are just varying and when they start flooding my job, all I am going to be dreaming about is throwing all the books onto my bed and swimming around in them like a fish in water.

It's going to be fun.

I think my head might explode at the excitement.

*update : just won my LAST auction for over 200+ comics all from DC for $10.50 plus $12 S/H, you CANNOT BEAT THAT PEOPLE...YOU JUST can't...anyway, that's all I had to add.

Oh and that I will be broke, but at least the bills will be paid and I will be happily smothered in comic ink and shiny covers.
