    Definitely need to cut back on that monthly expense!!
    Of course if you look at back issue prices and how they have skyrocketed in the pandemic era, new comic seem cheap by comparison. Stuff that was dollar bin fare for decades is now selling for hundreds of dollars. It's definitely a time to be a seller and not a buyer of back issues.

    The last comic book I bought was around 1986 off the squeaky turning comic rack.

    I still have a bunch of Superman and Spider-man comics from the 70’s - 80’s the oldest is marvel-team up
    Spider-man and Black Panther, a whopping 20 cents, I think it’s dated 1968.

    If I want to go back and read comics, I go to the read comics for free website.

    This is me... I can't get into the new stuff and there is a lot of great old stuff I missed.
