Someday your collection will be known as "The Pepperoni Pedigree"! known for the tomato-sauce fingerprint marks


I occasionally take trade paperbacks with me when I travel for business. Once when I got my upgrade to First Class (yeah, I travel A LOT) I was reading one and people around me kept looking at me. I wasn't sure if they were curious, thought I was weird, or were jealous that I was relaxed and enjoying myself. Probably all three.

I am always interested in quality Silver Age and Pre-Hero original art pages by Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko.

I was surprised to see a guy reading a copy of ASM #153 (from the 70s) on my subway commute to work last week. (And a nice copy, too!) After some time, I looked back over at him, and he had put the #153 away and was reading a nice copy of ASM #154. Funny!

.....Was it one of you guys? Fess up.... hm

I said "Never" because my books never leave my house. As most member of the boards know, I'm not an ultra high grade collector- only CA and the few moderns I have would be in this range. Still, even my low grades I like to take special care of and there really aren't any areas I'd feel comfortable reading them in. \(shrug\)

Now ask me this question when I collected as a kid and I'd say no due to embarrassment. But getting married and being in the military frees from 1. worrying about what the girls will think and 2. getting beaten up for being a geek ;\)

I usually have TPB/Masterworks in my car or at work. I have no problem reading comics in the real world. Maybe someone will ask me about it and a new comic fan might be born.

On the rare occasion that I leave my cave and venture into a public place for something I have no problems at all reading a comic.

Though I tend to take a trade rather than an individual issue.

When my wife goes to the casino I'll always bring a couple trades and then just sit in one of the restaurants or the hotel lounge and read. Same if we've got a dr appt or anything like that when I know that appointment time rarely reflects AIS time.

Never noticed any strange looks but also nobody has ever asked me about the books and if they're worth reading.

I usually read all my new issues before I go to bed, and I sometimes bring the TPB's to work to read at lunch.
