Hello, my name is Tom. I began collecting comics about 8 years ago. So, yes. I am still a newbie. One of the things I learned quickly, was you could spend a lot of money in a short amount of time. I also ran into some folks that were more interested in my money than helping me when I asked questions. Now don’t get me wrong. I also met some good people that helped me out, but there were fewer of them. So I have started this blog in hopes of spreading information to those who may need some. Now, I do want you to remember. What I write here is mainly my opinion and how I feel. By no means is it the rule or an exact science. Read it, and then do your own research and hopefully you will not hit the same pitfalls I did. Please feel free to comment, ask questions, share stories and knowledge you feel is pertinent. But I do ask there be no name calling or arguing. I can tell you for sure, that I do not know everything and will even be wrong sometimes. I hope you find this helpful and good luck in your collecting. This is an awesome hobby and a lot of fun.
