I collected as a kid back in the 50's. I still have a nice run of Superboy from about 1955 until 1960.

I too collected in the 90s. I had about five long boxes full of books that I sold a few years ago to give my kids a little nicer Christmas than I was able to afford otherwise that year. I got a very fair offer from a great dealer in PA for the lot of them along with some old toys I had. I sometimes have seller's remorse from some of the books I sold, but it was worth it for me to see my kids on Christmas that year. There are still some books worth money from that period, but not many I don't think. I love seeing books from that era too so thanks for posting some pics of the books you have. Were you into the Valiant titles when they came out or Image?

I collected Amazing Spiderman as a child in the #250-400 range. The earlier issues were out of reach to me back then. For the last two years I have been slowly putting together a 1-50 ASM run and its been a lot of fun. Great reads too. The language has changed quite a bit since that era

I don't recall Valiant. I do remember Image and Dark Horse being like the new wave dark edgy comics of the era. I have a few Maxx comics (Image) but never was able to purchase any beyond that as a kid. Are there any Valiant/Image comics you'd recommend or you enjoyed collecting?

I liked most of the Valiant titles to be honest. They were all good reads although a different kind of superhero. Not a lot like Marvel really. I liked a lot of the artwork too. Barry Windsor Smith did a lot of work for them. They had a huge crossover mini-series called Unity. I would suggest getting all those books to read that story at the minimum. As for Image, I liked Spawn the best. I think that was their flagship title too. I could be wrong there though.

I was wrong about Spawn being the flagship, I think it was actually Youngblood by Rob Liefeld.

ASM was always my favorite title. I have a 100-252 run (that's when my subscription ran out!). What a great (and challenging) run 1-50 would be. Good luck!

I sold my Golden and Silver Age collection years back, and I've always regretted it.

What's depressing is the fact that despite superhero movies being hugely popular now, literally none of these new modern fans collect old books.
There's no reverence for the history of where all these movies spawned from...
