I found a weird hobby, i collect comic book stories.. I dont mean any special universe, i just go into a flea market, of a garage sale, even comic book stores and search for stories that been left behind.. And there are thousands..

Do anyone collect stories?

Wanna buy Amazing Spider-man #200-#350

Still need to fill in that 100-199 gap, but I'm running out of arms and legs.

How about the Underground Comix from the Hippie 60's by R. Crumb, Gilbert Shelton and others?




Zap
The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers

Fritz the Cat
Mr. Natural
Wonder Wart Hog
Harold Hedd
Dopin' Dan
Further Adventures of Jesus
Young Lust

There are dozens and dozens of those...all indicative of the hippie/alternative lifestyle of the 60's...music, pot, communes, lifestyles..

I am a major fan of Marvel comics from the 90s. Punisher, Spiderman, Cable, X-Men, Venom, Carnage, so many great plotlines to follow. Guest appearances frequently, way better than anything you could find on TV.

When I was in high school I thought of making a website start selling some because I have many comics where i had 7 or 8 copies of the same one. It never happened though - they're all still sitting in my family's home in the middle of nowhere, untouched. When I get my own home I'll add them to the mancave to go along with the pool table and other fun manly stuff

Greetings-

Then You'd love Stanley Mouse, probably best known for Grateful Dead stuff but also did some Hot Rod type stuff. When I last saw Him He was living in Sonoma and working in His little shop.. He has some real great stories..

www.mousestudios.com...

I'm certain there were some real good ones mixed in with the baseball cards My Mom threw out..

the whole Phoenix Saga from Xmen 101 to 137, especially the Dark Phoenix Saga. For me, it's the peak of comicdom.

I have the first appearances of: Deadpool, Cable, Domino, Mystique, Deathstroke, Apocalypse, Lobo, Weapon X, Omega Red, The Hand, Misty Knight (first African American female hero), Black Cat, She hulk and some others I'm forgetting at the moment.

One of my favorite series is Shaolin Cowboy by Geoff Darrow. There isn't a whole lot of dialogue in that one but it is full of action and the detailed artwork style of Geoff Darrow is awesome.



I like anything with Frank Miller involved, he has such a dark gritty style. I always loved the punisher series and I'm looking forward to the Deadpool: Back in Black series coming out in October, in it the Venom symbiote attaches itself to Deadpool which equals total bad assery.

What are your thoughts on cameos as first appearances, or magazine style comics? I only ask because 1st appearance of Apolcalypse is X-Factor, but cameo was revealed as Marvel Graphic Novel, The Living Monolith.
Also, Rocket Raccoon is first in Marvel Preview #7 but lots of people only view his appearance in The Hulk as first appearance because magazine style appearances don't count(?). Those same people want Marvel Preview #4 for the first appearance of Star Lord though!

Anyone can weigh in here, I just find it funny how fickle and weird the hobby gets when it comes to first appearances.

Walking Dead was previewed in Capes, before it was anywhere else too.
