A Comic Book Ambiance

     Hello everyone, hope all is well.  As I write this, today is a Tuesday, the day BEFORE comic book day.  And to me that is just as exciting.  You see I can begin to think and to make room for where I'm going to put my newest comics.  Every week I look forward to the remodeling of my den with new four-color material, the greatest building blocks of all construction...comic books!

     And I ponder how tall the stack of comic boxes will be, what dizzying heights they will reach.  Let's call it, as the stack of comic boxes tilt one way and then the other, a sort of feng (pardon the upcoming pun) sway-ing back and forth.  I can't wait til' Wednesday!

     Take care and remember to adopt a comic (one that can preferably be stacked) book today!

Detective #1000

     Hello everyone, hope all is well.  I have been enjoying a great event all week since last Wednesday.  The event was the release of Detective Comics #1000.  This has been in the works since 1937 and took on more importance (I think) since Batman debuted in the same book in issue 27 80 years ago.  Yep, you do the math, May, 1939-Now, 2019.

     The anniversary gives us 8 different covers, one for each decade.  Before you know it, I bought all 8 (plus a 9th main one) covers for ten bucks each.  And get this, I own from #28 on.  I did own #27 for a summer, but the relative who passed on the current 3 million dollar comic said I was too young to take good care of it.  Yeah, right!

     So to make up for it I got #28 (two copies) to present.  Add that to my Batman #1 to present and I have a lot of Batman stories (too bad mine are all super beater copies, the only way I could afford them).

     So yes, pick up this great comic, this Detective #1000.  I did and now I have 973 issues of Detective.  Yippee!
