Too Many #@&! Comic Books!
I have too many doggone comic books! It's a pitiful complaint to make, but sadly it's true.
I went to find the Sword of the Atom trade I bought a few years ago and I had to bust through nearly half the boxes in my over-crowded back bedroom to find it, and that was on the second attempt. I was exhausted after the first attempt and had to rest a bit before I tried again. I found it, and read and enjoyed it (review upcoming), but it was too hard to find. I need to clear out the stuff I haven't looked at in a decade or longer. It's just sitting there, soaking up room and offering up no value whatsoever.
Sadly, I know that much of what I have is largely worthless in the resale market, but nonetheless I need to bite the bullet and begin to move it out. I have some time today and and maybe it's time at long last to begin the great shift. It has to happen, regardless of the value I can reap on the other side.
I spend all my time with trades and collections these days. I rarely read an individual comic book, and in fact Popeye is the only regular book I get still. It's time to begin. Wish me luck.
