Continuing the subject of my last few blog posts and rants on the RaynMan Power Hour podcast....I'm getting rid of a whole crap load of comics.....that's right the G-man will have a vendor table at Champion City (hopefully I can find somebody to man the table by next weekend...I think I am scrapping the bottom of the barrel as far as volunteers go)
I will be getting rid of hundreds....actually THOUSANDS of comics. Everything must go! And go at crazy prices...I'm talking a buck or less on each and every book or a special deal to any vendors at the show.
As you can see...I just don't have the room to collect all these books any more and take into consideration that I recently thinned out 4,000 books for store credit at two different comic shops (the bulk of the D.C. collection and some rather disappointing recent stuff I picked up),and that there's two more long boxes and three short boxes not in this picture, on the other side of the room....I just have too many damn comics!!!!!
Hundreds I haven't even gotten around to reading yet.
After eliminating about 15 long boxes just a few weeks ago...the collection still comes in at almost 7,000 comics. (6,579 to be exact).
The plan is to get rid of everything that doesn't make me **** in my pants and get the collection down to around a "manageable" 2,000 books.
Several reasons for this decision.
1. My lack of interest in collecting current mainstream books......just Captain America and Secret Avengers are left (once a few limited series conclude)
2. No time to read or manage the collection.
3. Need the room in the office to actually work on producing my own comics for Twilight Star, Studio Akumakaze, and Comic Related. and I need the money to keep the production of these books rolling well into next year.
After Champion City is over, hopefully what is left of the collection is books I can read over and over and enjoy for years to come.....just like when I was kid.
