Comic books inspired me to draw. I tried several times, unsuccessfully, to start my own comic book, but I was never any good at the writing part. My characters were paper-thin, and my stories were hackneyed and trite. I was the kind of screenwriter that, nowadays, could only get hired by Disney or Paramount.
My comic book collection contains over 1,500 issues from the 1970s.
Hey, I'll admit it: I was a loser when I was a kid. As proof, here's a list of all the titles and issues I have boxed up in plastic sleeves. I have no intention of selling my comic book collection yet, as it comprises the sum total of my retirement plan.
I mean, I haven't listed the entire collection on eBay just yet, as it's time-consuming as hell. But I will get the stuff up there eventually. In the meantime, check out the titles I used to collect below and see if there are any you want to know more about. If you want an issue that I might have, email me.
