A Beginner’s Guide to Collecting Comics

I love comics.  Always have, always will.  However, I didn’t always have them.  I got my first comic book at about 9 years old, when I was in Universal Studios in Orlando, FL for vacation.  I didn’t get any more until I was in high school, I didn’t have more than 5 until I was in college.  I’ve realized after talking with several people that I’m not an outlier in that regard.  A lot of people don’t really get into comics until they’re older.  That’s not surprising especially because comic books are more marketed towards teenagers and young adults now, whereas the animated TV shows are what’s aimed at the younger audiences.
