My name is Paul. I've been a comics fan since I was alittle kid. I was away from comics for alot of years. Put it tis way the last time I collected comiccs regularly was during the whole Spider-Man "Clone Saga" thing. It was a long layoff. I got back into them last year (2011) aroung August.

My biggest favorite is The Incredible Hulk and Red Hulk. and since my return I've gotten sucked in by the New 52 froom DC.

Can't wait to talk comics with everyone and show off some toys too.

Hi, I'm Tad. (Hello, Tad)

I've been reading and collecting comics since I was a kid. OF course there have been a few times I sold them all, then re-collected, then sold again, and so on and so on.

I've really been heavy into comics over the past year and a half, when my town finally got a comic shop again, and I had the opportunity to actually keep up with the titles and so ties I like. I've always been a big Batman guy, but honestly, nowadays, my pull list consist of a little of everything. And I'm enjoying every minute of it. Even when I read a bad issue or a bad title, I feel some strange sense of accomplishment and satisfaction from gaining a tiny bit more comic knowledge from that particular issue.

I'm a moderator on here, so sorry in advance if I accidentally destroy the internet and catch the globe on fire by pushing the wrong button.

I came to meet Chris, Paul and the other mods on here from our common passion for Star Wars collecting, which eventually turned into us all sharing our comic collecting as well.

But I really have high hopes for this site, being that comics have always been sort of a hard clique to gain membership to. Not here. All are welcome. No question is too silly, no expert is too knowledgeable. I firmly believe that in any collecting community, everyone from the shiny noob, to the cranky old vet are essential to building a great hobby.

I'm really looking forward to getting more and more folks on here, and hearing more and more views and opinions regarding the comes we all love.

Hi my name is Mike,and I love comics

I started out on this comic journey when I was a child and I used to get 2000AD every week and when we went on holiday I would get Eagle or Commando comics, then as I got older I moved onto DC comics at this time my local comic shop opened in my hometown and it introduced me into a whole new world (I really got into Hellblazer, Sandman, Spawn and the like).

Then I will admit I drifted away from comics till about a year ago, but I'm back now and loving it more than ever, to me now its not just about the comics its the new friends that the comic world has introduced to me I hope this forum will introduce me to yet more like minded comic collectors.

As well as comics I collect Vintage Star wars toys, but I love all things Sci-fi and I love all the old Sci-fi films Invaders from mars, The creature from the black lagoon, Day the earth stood still and Metropolis. But that will do for now I'm sure you will find out more about me as this forum grows.

Hello all! My name is Johnny and I'm a comic book lover! I've collected comics since I was in middle school. Comics, Star Wars, and my younger brother is all I really had growing up. We moved a lot because my dad was in the military, so I never really stayed anywhere long enough to make a lot of friends. So I got lost in comics. I mostly collect Marvel but Image and DC are always welcomed in my collection. Oh and I can't forget Valiant that was huge in my younger collecting days! I hope to learn a lot from the great group of guys on here because I'm definately no expert. But if I can help anyone in anyway that would make my day! cheers

Hey Johnny. Good to see you here. I knew we'd probably see you here sooner or later.

As Tad said above the goal of this forum is to have a place where ALL comics collectors can feel welcome. Chris and I felt it was time for such a place. starting fresh in a new home was alot easier than trying to make an older, established comics site, see the light. it'll take lots of time and keping our eyes on the ball. but we'll do our best to make it fun and welcoming and keep the arguemants and elitism out of here. No BS is our moto. We're all here for the same thing. Comics, comics related items and media oh and maybe the odd My Litttle Pony discussion farao

Hi I'm Paul and I live in France but grew up in the UK. My first comics experience as a child were the Dandy, Beano, Whizzer and Chips, Topper etc.
Then I remember being totally blown away by the Marvel characters and stories.
It was exciting reading about all those colourful superheroes and the buzz was definitely enhanced by the Saturday morning cartoons like Spider-Man and Hulk.
I also got into some of the DC horror/mystery titles like House of Mystery, Ghosts, and Weird War Tales.
Then I became hooked on 2000AD. Judge Dredd soon became a big favourite and I still have all my Dredd comics from my early teen years.

I particulary enjoy collecting vintage comics 1970s and 1980s - not just for the great stories and art but also for the cool vintage toy adverts inside which I collect and add to my toy adverts web site.

Thanks for having me here, looking forward to seeing all your great comic stuff Cool

Glad to see you here Paul. Love the Alice Cooper avatar.

You should put a link to your site in your signiture here. We don't care how big it is here Wink .

Also how about doing a weekly comic advert spotlight in the General Section?? It would be cool and really go along with the fun atmosphere we want to foster here.

Registered a few days ago and figured it was time I say something. Smile I see a lot of familiar names here.

My name is Shawn. I've always enjoyed comics but am more of a casual reader. I'll admit that a lot of my exposure to comic characters have been in movies and T.V. shows. Hopefully I can change that and get some good recommendations here.

Welcome Shawn. Glad to have you here. Weather you're a casual reader or hardcore you're welcome here. No question too big or small. Even if you collect Millie The Model you can join in. What a Face

As for what to read? Like we were telling Dallas in chat last night. If you live near a comics store of any place that sells comics. Just grab a few that you think look cool. Don't even worry about comeing into the middle of a story arc. Just try it and see. The nice thing about Marvel comics is that they usually give a little summary of the story on the first page. That was something Stan Lee insisted on back in the day. Have a little summary to catch the reader up. He did this because he said that "Every comic book is somebodys first comic book." So lets catch them up on the story.

I totally didn't know that! That's a cool story, and a cool quote. Smile

I didn't realize this either. I think that's great as it can seem overwhelming when you see a story arc several issues in and have no idea what's going on.

Good to see you here dude. Drama free and working hard to take over the universe over here.

Even if you don't want to talk comics. Stop buy chat and tell us about the baby or even that skinny white droid if you like.
