         Having an autographed comic book is a dream of any comic book collector. I bought a Captain America comic book at Comic Odyssey. I noticed that Mark Gruenwald and Ron Lim autographed the comic book. I quickly researched their autographs. Ron Lim usually puts the date on the right side and Mark Gruenwald usually writes the letter d like a triangle. I never expected to get an autographed comic book for $3(P150). I’m really happy because I am a fan of Mark Gruenwald. I have some comic books written by him. Three days ago, Comic Odyssey had a sale. I took advantage and bought three X-men comic books and two Captain America comic books. I noticed again that both of the Captain America comics are signed by Mark Gruenwald and Ron Lim. I showed it to the guy at the store. He said that it is a really good deal and I said to myself it’s more than a good deal. It’s a jackpot! It seems like the guys at Comic Odyssey didn’t scan the comic books that they bought.

comic collecting

My hobby for collecting comics started three years ago. Before that, I wasn’t really crazy about it.

We first bought my 90’s comics in an old book store right after we came from the hospital. I was 7 years old at the time so I knew nothing about comics and on how to take care of them.

Two years later, I learn more and more about them, and I got interested in comics that’s why I started collecting since then.

Right now I have about 29 comics. The series that I’ve been following recently is the X-Men Curse of the Mutants. So far, I have the issues #1-#5, all in perfect condition. I really wish to complete this series.

If you’re wondering if what else would be interesting to collect aside from comics, I suggest Marvel cards or DC Cosmic cards and Heroclix. I’m still researching where I can buy them here in the Philippines aside from Sulit, Ayosdito or OLX. Some of the ads are waaay too expensive like 100 pesos each card I guess that’s too much. I’d rather find and buy the brand new ones, if that’s the case.

If I know the place to buy Marvel cards or DC cards I’ll write about it right away. But if you want to buy Heroclix I know that they sell it in Comic Odyssey.

I’ll continue my comic collecting until I have a room full of them!
