    My 1-4 (limited run before it expanded into the series.) Marvel's Transformers.

    My 1-4 (limited run, also) Headmasters series.

    My original GI Joe VS Transformers that I got from my friend for my birthday.

    (I'm addicted to Transformers.)

    I found the first two sets from a Mom and pop comic shop for a couple of bucks a piece. They're in pristine condition! :bowdown:

    I have a copy of Deadpool #66 written by gail simone where wade is hired to cut of the rhino's horn. It's probably one of the funniest damned single issue comics I've ever read and I bought it randomly about 8 years ago.

    I finally got gail to sign it when she was here for FCBD a few years back

    I have a Anna Mercury Sketch Cover done by Paul Duffield(who draws FreakAngels with Warren Ellis and does the covers for Anna Mercury). English dude, quiet, but super-nice and his work is amazing.

    Yes, he did all this with an ink pen in about 30 minutes...it's insane watching some of these guys

    I met Kevin O'Neil at Wizard World Texas in 07 and got him to sign and do an Allan Quatermain sketch in my new copy of The League of Extraordinary Gentleman - The Black Dossier.

    All I have is this pic, I can't seem to find one I snapped of the sketch. I'll have to dig up my sketchbook box and find it. Oh and I was really excited in this one, that's why I look so goofy :o

    Other than that, I have my Micheal Turner Civil War Variants

    A graded Uncanny X-Men #275 signed by both Claremont and Lee. One of the first comics I ever bought.

    Final Crisis 6 signed and with sketches of Batman and Darkseid by Doug Mahnke.

    I am waiting on CGC to ship out my Amazing Spider-man 187 signed by Stan Lee and Joe Simon.

    I have a first printing Green Arrow #1 signed by Kevin Smith that I have framed. Probably my only unique comic. Other then that, I have the entire Age of Apocalypse run in a box. Still probably my favorite Marvel run.

    It's funny because they are probably some of my most beat up comics. The Judas Contract from Teen Titans. They are what got me reading the Titans - my favorite comics ever are the early Wolfman/Perez stuff. I then had the fun of hunting up the rest of the series before that and somehow buying it all with my babysitting money.

    These comics have some of my favourite artwork. There was 2 more for my top 10 but don't recall. When I was living with my ex, and our place caught fire, these were the only things I went out of my way to save. She never did forgive me for that.:o

    All the issues? The first few become really expensive for a while when 28 Day later came out. Zombie fever ftw.

    Does my complete hard cover books of Calvin and Hobbes count? I intend to be reading them when I'm in my 80's.
