Hehe, my favorite was Superman. Then Batman, Spiderman(Edderkoppen (Danish)) and Darkman (Demonen (Danish)) I had about 3000 of these magasines, but around my 14-15 years birthsday i sold them all, excepts from a few very old 60th. Supermans and Batmans... The best story was this guy Parasite, i think he was named, witch took away Superman powers but ended up exploding, becourse hes human body couldent hold so much power.... ;D ;D ;D
Came across this thread and I just had to post in it.
When I was a kid I was in to comic books hard core, still am. One of my personal projects I have going on that I work on every now and then is a comic book revolving around Quake 2 dm/sp then it off shooted in to another about a group of Quake 2 players who meet up during an apocalyptic event. My girl friend is always pushing me to finish it, like pain in the ass bugging me to finish it and I probable should dedicate more time to it and complete it. I just enjoy and like a variety in my all things quake world so I bounce around with my personal projects and they all feed in to one another and bring knew ideas forward. I would say its about 2-4 years from being completed. (have 3 completed in the series now)
Back to why I wanted to post in here, when I was a kid, I lived comic books!!! I met an old man who stopped to talk to me about comic books when I was sitting outside with mine rereading them for the mil'th time. Long story short when he died he left me his comic book collection, big big comic book collection! One of the comic books was the original superman 1st addition, there were a lot of 1st editions in mega mint condition. Make a longer story shorter again, my mother (whole family) was a bit of a bunch of f**k ups when it comes to being role models to look up to, ..they all ended up getting tossed out. I was never the same with my family after that, I got a lot of enjoyment on one of the rare occasions I would visit and shoved in their face what the worth of them was. I would have never sold them but I may have been really tempted when I was trying to scrap enough money back in the day on my own collecting beer bottles to buy my first pc. I use to pretend I was superman with xray vision when I would go on the hunt for beer bottles, lol yup def not your norm type of kid lol.
Girl friend is into collecting Harley Quinn, love it when she cosplays
