Smile New Junkie

Hello, I'm a collector in Phoenix, AZ. I've recently got back into comics after a 20 year break (did I miss anything?). The ASM 50th anniversary, and the Marvel now relaunch drew me back to comics.

I've found a few great LCS's around here and have started a few subscriptions. I've been looking around the Internet at different comic sites and forums. I registered here because it doesn't seem so "fanboy-ish", if you know what I mean. Some forums tend to host a lot of people that complain if their favorite character isn't written the way they agree with. Nothing wrong with passion, but this site seems more collector orientated.

I'm not into flipping very much, but enjoy collecting.

Anyway, I scored a great addition to my collection, and I just had to share it with someone. I was at a shop, and they were going through a box that they received with some older comics. They pulled out this copy if ASM 300, and I asked if they'd be willing to sell it. It's not NM, the pages are yellowing some, but the cover is in good shape. They sold it to me for $30! I was stoked because all the ones I've seen have been out of my price range.

Thanks for the great forum everyone.
Cheers!

Thanks for the welcomes. I don't mean "fanboys" as a swipe at anyone. I just don't know how else to describe some of the other comic forums. This forum seems more about comics in general.

Ill share some more recent pick ups this weekend when I have a chance. I've had a couple of good finds at the local shops this last week.

I understood what you were saying, and totally agree with you.
