I buy comic book collections. So, each Saturday I will show you a portion of what I got. Although there is variety in the comics collections I buy, I do have a type: Marvel Silver and Bronze Age. And I focus on key issues and stuff I’ve always loved from when I was a kid.
So, if you are interested in my comic book hauls, click the video above to see which comics I got this Saturday! Spoiler: This is a funky collection of X-Men, from beautiful J Scott Campbell variants to rare foreign editions.
By the way, I'm still buying comic book collections. If you want to unload anything from 5 to 100+ boxes in one easy transaction, then please do reach out. clave [dot] jones [at] nerdsonearth.com Click here for more details.
As a bonus, I’ve doubled the amount of videos on YouTube each week in an effort to show off more classic Marvel Comic book covers. But while Saturdays jump all over the place, Wednesdays focus on comic book runs.
I’m currently work through AN ENTIRE RUN OF DAREDEVIL!! I’m talking every single issue, starting at #1.
I invite you to look over my shoulder as I the sweet comic books I’ve aded to my collection. You’ll likely see covers that you have never seen or have long forgotten and, as we go, we’ll talk about some of the major keys, big events, comic trivia, and lore of late Silver Age and Bronze Age Marvel Comics. OK, a few Moderns too, especially if it’s Star Wars.

I have 40 years of experience in comics and try to be accurate as I present the comics, but I’m doing it on the fly, so an occasional mistake will be made. Although I don’t ask for it, people are more than happy to get pedantic in the comments on YouTube.
