    One of my oldest comics is all roughed up but it was Avengers vs. Frankenstein. :biglaugh:

    Correction: it was X-men.

    Great Escape and Collector's World.

    There was a Collector's World near my dorm. Then the owner fled the country for tax evasion and the guy working there bought that store's stock and made it his own.

    Maus is good... hard to read, even though it's drawn the way it is.

    The Holocaust, but the Jews are mice and the Nazis are cats. Polish are pigs.

    There were a few. I think the original was on Nolensville Road. I actually met Stan Lee at a signing there.

    Just happened to walk in and there he was!

    I have about 100 or so. Very random, many from the 90’s but a couple go back to the 70’s. A few of the original run of transformers.

    Really haven’t read any, I got them passed down at some point.
    I just try to keep them in as good of condition as possible but I think the highest value, if graded in good condition, is probably less than $50.

    I still have the original Transformer toys. Megatron, Optimus, all 3 jets, Bee, and the army jeep Hound. For some reason Hound was never in the movies, which is weird because he was my favorite and was prominent in the cartoon. Also funny that Bee was so big, because his role was pretty negligible in the cartoon as far as I can remember.

    I may be mistaken, but I believe Hound died in the beginning of the cartoon movie with Ironhide and Ratchet.

    took about 10 minutes into that cartoon to see they were Fn around. For kids, that was extreme shocking then Optimus and negation both going down? Unreal.
    Bumble bee had a fairly small role in that movie but survived with Jazz to hang around with the Gen 2 characters.

    that movie is probably the greatest cartoon movie ever. Maybe should add “spoiler”?
    I mean, if they haven’t seen it since release in 86/87, probably ok.

    those original die cast metal toys are valuable too.
