I finally got a box for all our comics and it’s already full, so we’re going to need another one! Did I go for the plain white box of the serious comic book collector? Hell no! I got the brightly coloured one aimed at 12 year-olds with the word POW! On the lid! Why? Because it makes me smile.
You won’t find many caped heroes in our collection (mine and Rachel Howells). It’s mostly horror comics and Sandman Universe stuff. And the odd My Little Pony/Transformers cross-over (Rachel).
Collecting comics easily becomes an obsession. It’s an obsession I’m willing to embrace. Storytelling and art. What is there to not like?
Support your local comic book store. I get mine at Frog Bros in Boscombe Sovereign Centre.
