My Current Obsession: Comic Books

So, I’m not sure what triggered this one. Just, one day last week I started looking for comic book subscriptions. That night I asked my wife if there were any comics she would want. She listed a couple and I was off. I created an account at atomicempire.com and started adding stuff for subscriptions. Before I knew it I had something like 50 comics on my list.

After having a hard time trimming the list down, I asked my wife how much I could spend per month. She said probably no more than 60. So I kept trimming down the list.

I finally got it down to 20. But I keep adding them back. I’m back up to 35. I don’t think I want to miss out on some of these. I also secretly bought all the back issues of Buffy the Vampire Slayer for my wife. Maybe to convince her to let me keep them.

Since then I have ordered some comic storage boxes and comic dividers. Last night I organized all the comics we already have and labeled the dividers and put them into one of the boxes. We have allmost a whole box full already. It’s mostly filled with my Fight Club 2 and Fight Club 3 comics and variant covers, but also includes my wife’s Cable and Ghost Rider comics. I’m pretty sure with 30+ comics coming a month we’ll finish filling up that box and start on the next one in no time.

Next I have to hunt down all the back issues of the comics I subscribed to too late to get issue #1 of. The 2019 run of X-Men, Spawn, Miskatonic, 2021 Suicide Squad, Vampire: The Masquerade, New Mutants, Children of the Atom, and Strange Acedmy.
