I'm probably what would be called an "accidental collector". I started out as a comic reader. I still am. But comics being what they are, can't just be read and disposed of. They've been fetishized into supposed collectors items and priceless artifacts by most everyone when, in fact, most of them will never be worth much more than the paper they're printed on. However, the beauty of the artwork, the sensuality of the inks and papers and their popular art appeal make them hard to throw away. Consequently, after reading comics for 35 years, I've accumulated a great many of them. I don't keep them all, but I do occasionally indulge in back issues and comic book related merchandise. Here are some of the best examples of the collection.
