Axel-In-Charge: Navigating the "Civil War II" Landscape, Bringing DMC to Marvel
Sometimes, life gets in the way of my comic book history so I’ve decided to make a few resolutions to keep my eye on the prize.
1. Keep Piecing Together my Lassie Run
This series features so many great artists, including a long run by Dan Spiegle in the final years. They are often quite affordable when they turn up but I have not been very diligent about tracking them down. This must be rectified.
2. Read the Iron Man Omnibus
I picked this up at half-price when the first movie was released. I had sold all of my Tales of Suspense issues and was happy to get all of this Silver Age goodness for such a low price. It’s been gathering dust, begging me to crack it open. Lo, It Shall Be Done!
3. Find Some Inexpensive Harvey books
My kids have really enjoyed what they’ve seen of Casper, and I think they love the entire Harveyverse. We’ve picked up some nice collections, but I want to keep my eyes peeled for some inexpensive floppies from the 70s. They seem to turn up less frequently than Gold Keys from the same time.
4. Read Electric Warrior in One Sitting
I started this series during the summer when I had a couple of days to myself. I didn’t get through it, and since I thought the cover to #8 would freak out my kids a little, I packed it all away. I’d love to find an afternoon this year during which I can plow through the whole thing.
5. Add a Few More Infinity Covers to my Collection
I’ve got more than 50 infinity covers and I hope to collect them all some time. I haven’t focused on this aspect of my collection in recent years, and it is time to get serious. Terry-Toons #55 and Captain Marvel Jr. #37 are two that have eluded me thus far – very tough to find at a reasonable price.
