I think I had started a thread on the old forum, but I can't remember. I'm a Silver Surfer fan, have been for as long as I've collected. I've been an on\off collector since about 92' when my uncle gave me a pile of bronze and modern books(nothing great value wise, but it got me going). So long story short my end goal has been to collect Silver Surfer books and iconic covers/cameos. Much to my chagrin, I've realized he spends a lot of time with the Fantastic Four. Being the completionist that I am, I'll be collecting that whole series as well. Intro done, here is a list of the back issues I've snagged over the last few weeks that I started collecting again.


Fantastic Four:56,151,153,155,156,160,162,170,219,222,223,224,225,228,229,230,231,232,248,255,256,257,258,259,260,
261,262,263,264,272,273,274,275,276,277,278,279,280,281,282,283,284,285,287,288,289,291,293,294,295,311,319,325,
341,347,354,356,369,374,380,381,382,384,387,388,389,396,402,403,Annual 17,20,21,22,23,24,25,26, King Size 5
Silver Surfer(vol 1): 5,6,8,9,11,15
Silver Surfer(vol 5): 2,3,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14
Silver Surfer(vol 7): 6,7,8,9,10
Silver Surfer(vol 8): 1,1a,1b,1c,1d,1e,2,2a
I also picked up a few books I wanted.
Avengers 116
Thor 193
ASM 430
I'll post some scans of the books I like when I get a chance.

Managed to fill in some more FF issues. Streamlined the list a little bit too.

1/2,56,63,76,80,84,86,134,140,142,144,147-153,155,156,158-160,162-165,169-177,181-183,185,186,188,191-195,197-211,213,217-241,245,248-285, 287-316,319,323,325,339,341,344-349,354-356,358,360,363,366-369,371-377,379-382, 384,387-389,396,402,403,Annual 3,11,14,17,19-26, Special 5,7-10

I'm going to fill in 100 to 400 first. Then whittle down the sub 100s. My 56 is pretty nice and I'm sending it to get slabbed. First book ever for me, so it will be a learning curve. May sell it off if it comes back good. Use the monies to buy more stuffs lol.

Oh yeah, eBay can be a money pit when you are really focusing on collecting a specific thing. Conventions, too. On the plus side, you're building up a nice collection.

I have never made it to a convention actually. Really want to. My son is getting into comics with me now, so I may look for the nearest big con coming up. Maybe Charlotte, NC. I think there is a big one there, only 2 hours away.

In other news, I just added 81 and 94 to my ff run and 12 and 14 for silver surfer. I'm really excited about the 14, scans showed it looking nm ish.

That's too cheap. Nice steal smile
Did people stop collecting FF because the last movie sucked so hard?
Or maybe because Marvel has cancelled the series.

I don't know what happened, but I'll take it. If I can land a few things I'm looking at today, I'll have my first 100 issue run done(217 thru 316 of FF). I'm only missing 5.

Hi Greg,
I sent you a PM a couple days ago, not sure if you got it? I always have trouble with the message system here so I never know when things don't go thru unless I get a reply. Or I get 5 copies of the 'your message has been opened/read' overkill.

I see you already have most of the Surfer issues I told you about anyway, but please let me know if you got my message, thanks.
-Charles (Collectibleshop)



I did get your message Charles, thanks. I just saw it last night, didn't even know this site had that feature lol. Yeah, I pretty much have what you mentioned, but I appreciate it.
