Justice League of America #52 (March 1967) GD/VG 3.0 $4.70 I do not believe that I would be as interested in Hawkgirl as I am today if I had not been so girl crazy when I was a kid. I recall the first time I saw Hawkgirl on the cover of a comic book and I have told the story here before about how I … Continue reading Hawkgirl/Covergirl Collection #97

Yet knowing that I am being redundant and repetitive (see here and here), I will summarize why I read comic books … Continue reading How I Read Comic Books

I have used the service for about two years now to keep track of both my wish list and my collections list. I was able to download two csv files holding both lists. I hope they … Continue reading Oh No! Comicbookdb.com is going away
