My oddball collection journey/Chill Bloggity Thing Fun Adventure: Marvel and DC Novels

Over the past couple years or so I’ve been on a collecting spree of Marvel and DC Novels. If I stumble upon them in a used book store or anywhere, I’ll usually grab them. How did this start? Honestly out of pure curiosity of knowing they exist. I didn’t know so many of these were around until I started wandering bookstores and finding them. I have mostly the modern ones from the 90’s on up but I don’t have as much of the late60’s/70’s novels. I really didn’t know Marvel and DC had such a long history of novels. So that’s what I hunt down from time to time is those novels. Most of them you can find for scary cheap too, heck I got two Generation X ones for 2 bucks a piece so that was neat and the rest I’ve gotten for around 3 bucks a pop overall. Only a couple of the 70’s ones have run me about 5 to 7 bucks so I’m not arguing much about that at all. This is my weird collection that I like but it’s also fun because I do plan on reading them at some point as so many of them look like they’ll be a ton of fun to read.

I’ll have to list all the ones I got later as I need to write all the ones I have down and I’m writing this near midnight so, yeah it’ll have to wait for now. Promise I’ll get to it though. Yet I wanted to mention this fun adventure as it has been quite the journey for me. I’ve been to many different used book stores over the years and not even really hunting for those novels officially, they just seem to appear before my eyes. It’s been only recently I’ve seriously started to collect the novels and make a point to look for them. Of course you ask yourself as you read this why haven’t I just gone on ebay or amazon and so forth to get the ones I can’t find, it is because I enjoy the hunt for these. It’s not a big major hunt at this point, it’s my leisurely hunt for these novels. Stumbling upon them at random is still a lot of fun and I want to keep that up.

That’s my fun little story for the night I got an urge to talk about it and I’ll dive more into it later. Thanks for reading, take care and keep being awesome everyone.
