I’ve been collecting The Amazing Spider-Man comics for several years now. My collection is pretty decent at around 200 or so comics out of nearly 700. I made a sizable dent this weekend at heroescon when I was able to pick up around 50 back issues from the late 100s up to the 400s. Most of my collection is from the mid 500s onwards, since that is when I started heavily collecting comics. The goal is to one day have a full run, but it will take me many years for that to happen. Almost every comic from 10-150 goes for at least $50 if it is in good condition. Maybe one day I will get lucky at a yard sale or thrift store and find some old issues I need.
Anyways, I think after I get all of my new comics bagged and boarded and into some kind of order I will post it on here so that you can follow along as my collection grows.

Another pic of the Joker.
I took this picture in front of the convention center. One of my favorite photos ever, and surprisingly, it has been making its way around the internet. The original is here
Ghostmobile, or whatever it is called.
And a great end to a great weekend.

My friend Scott and Heather and I went out to the Brewhouse Cafe this past Saturday to watch Chelsea take on Bayern Munich in the Champions league finals, arguably the biggest sporting event in the world. I had a blast. We drank beer, ate pub food and screamed so hard that I lost my voice for about 24 hours. In the end, it all came down to Drogba. He scored the equalizing goal at 88 minutes and the decisive penalty kick to win us the game. By far, this is the greatest game of soccer I have seen since I have been a fan.
