Okay, don't laugh! When I was a kid I loved the Baby Huey comics. I actually read them up till I was about 12 or 13. I also liked the classics such as Duck Tails (lot of movie's were made based on the Duck tails stories) and Superman and Spider Man. Never really was a big X Men fan. I did like the Star Wars comics but they were hard to find back in the day. Now I pretty much only read Star Wars. Now that I can actually find them.

Man!That would be a nice investment! Would fetch a nice chunk of change today. I have that but it is in a big book of all the Star Wars comics that have Luke in them. It's like a few hundred comics all in one. Really cool book!

hmmmm.. lets see here, i love comics been collecting since i was a kid-- started with iron man and star wars, micronauts toys and comics!, but then sometime around 14 or 15 i thought it would be a good idea to give all my collection of comics and toys away as girls and surfing took over!! all those original comics,toys, so anyway i hit about 27,28 and decided to start collecting again so i started reading star wars,spawn,witchblade,fathom,was never really into the usual superheroes oh and i liked reading the darkness a lot, i think thats pretty much it- im out.

Conan The Barbarian was probably one of most dear to me. I was really drawn to it when I was a kiddo. Also read some Marvels like the Ghost Rider, X-Men. Donald Duck, in Finland known as Aku Ankka comics were probably the number one thing to me. I could just lay on my bed and read hours and hours of them. In my adult age havent read much of comics, just childrens books with my kids. Seems that it's a special task for me each evening as mommy doesn't change her voice for different characters lol, that's what the daughters say.

DD is awesome, especially by Don Rosa, Vicar or Carl Barks! Okay, Daniel Branca is very nice too. Shame that the current artists & writers don't produce such great stories and today's issues are seriously lacking in that area.
Otherwise, I'd love to read more SW comics, but story-wise they could also pack more punch...

Okay, so I thought I'd add my two cents to the comics thread as I've loved reading comics for as long as I can remember (even though I don't buy them on a regular basis these days).
I grew up reading Marvel comics, especially the Hulk. I still remember the first comic I ever bought. It was a British reprint called The Mighty World of Marvel and it featured the Hulk as its main character. The cover had Hulk going toe to toe with Doc Samson.
These days, rather than reading new stuff, I just revisit the old stuff I used to love reading. I've just finished re-reading The Korvac Saga, an epic Avengers story from the 70s, and The Great Darkness Saga, a fantastic Legion of Superheroes story from the 80s (I like my sagas).
The Hulk's still my favourite character though, so if I had a superpower I'd probably want to be the strongest one there is!
jaltrooper: Hey guys! Dumb question...but are there any t-shirts available, or any other swag I can buy to support the Page?

ARKM: We have challenge coins. Contact Luke Skywalker if you want one.

Luke Skywalker: We never did any swag. There's never enough interest to even break even. My sponsor coin run was a huge success and helped us pay the bills well into 2018 and even gave us the money to fund a couple of one time costs we incurred this year.

Luke Skywalker: As for shirts. I really need to get one for me as well. I've been wanting one with our new logo since we changed over. My desire has always been that this is a site for the members. I consider you all my friends and have no desire to make a profit from

ARKM: Luke Skywalker, hit me up if you want the image I used for the front of my shirt.
Sept 23, 2017 16:25:38 GMT -5
Luke Skywalker: Site. I never intend to charge selling fees. The coin drive was a much better way to go imho. As for our logo, name and copywriter and TM's go. I have no issue with anyone wanting to use them. I ask two things. Please let me know prior. If it's crude

Luke Skywalker: and vulgar and casts us in a bad light I simply won't approve it. The other thing I think would be nice is that if our name is used on things like t-shirts that you do make a small donation to help support the site.

Luke Skywalker: My recommendation, and the place I will definitely go when I want to have a shirt done is TRA member defcon. Al's work is outstanding. Al is the Solo's Hold of saber bags and other fabric items. I've had him make me a couple of shirts and several

Luke Skywalker: saber bags. His merchandise is perfection.

Luke Skywalker: I think I'm down to about 8 coins.
Sept 23, 2017 16:30:26 GMT -5
Luke Skywalker: ARKM what image did you use? Was it the one with SVD's glowing eyes? I'm really curious to see how our logo looks on a shirt. Defcon would certainly need to use the flattened simpler version. For a detailed logo I think you'd need it silk screened.
