Building my Spidey Library

So, my local comicbook shop (A Timeless Journey) shot me an email the other day about a big one-day-only sale. So — given that I’ve been working on the Official Index to the Marvel Universe Spider-Man entries, I just couldn’t resist the opportunity to fill in some of the gaps in my Spider-Titles. So I scored a fist full of comics at a sweet discount.

While I’ve been doing this type of back-fill over the recent years whenever I go to a Comic Con, I finally realized that I sort of owe my local shops some of my back-issue business, and want to purchase as much of my back issue needs from their stock.

I figure over the next couple of weeks I want to seriously take stock of the Spidey comics that I’m missing, and make up a serious list that I’ll start carrying around with me. I really would like to see how close I can come to completing all my runs by the end of the year (I’m not that far off).

I’ll keep you posted.

Marvel gets owned By Disney?
