Amazing Spider-Man #5!

Thanks to my wife and the Ebay gift card she gave me for Christmas, I've knocked another Amazing Spider-Man off the want-list.

I picked up an Amazing Spider-Man #5, in pretty decent shape.  It's missing the upper and lower corners of the front cover, and the cover is a bit brittle, but is free of creases and has some nice gloss.

Now I just need #'s 1, 3, 6 and 9.

Strangle Tales #106 - Fantastic Four Appearance

Has it really been eight months since I posted to this blog?  Wow.

I haven't been buying a lot of comics lately.  Or much of anything, really.  I've recently decided to start cataloging my Star Wars toy collection and I might start a blog for that as well.

Anyway, back in June I took my son to Ames, Iowa on a campus visit to Iowa State.  While there, I stopped in to Mayhem Comics and picked up a copy of Strange Tales #106.

It features a Fantastic Four appearance, as well as the first appearance of the Acrobat (who?).

X-Men #6

I haven't been buying many comics lately.  For some reason, I was watching the CGC boards and ended up buying a decent copy of X-Men #6.

The price of silver age comics has gotten pretty crazy, so I can't bring myself to buy many.  Have you seen what Fantastic Four #45 is going for?  It's the first appearance of The Inhumans.  I think my lower/mid grade copy would probably sell for over $200.  Crazy.
