I here & now freely admit that I was an avid collector in the 70s & 80s. All these comics are now up in the loft earing me a fortune(hopefully).
I my opinion the best comic ever is 2000AD, the first 700 issues were fantastic.
My favourite single issue ever was Marvel's Strange Tales No. 179 (anybody out there care to guess who was in this issue and who wrote and drew it).
My favourite artist was, well the chap who drew the above issue.
Be seeing you.

Still am a collecter.
Have the entire Spawn series (Started collecting @ issue 42).
Also purchase various Star Wars comics just because I love reading anything in the Star Wars Universe.

I started collecting comics in the 80's sometime, and I still collect to this day now.
Personally, in the last 3 years, some of the best written titles have come out.. Amazing titles..
My very first comic that I read and collected was.. (Drum roll)..
Rom the Space Knight #33.. From their, I read the entire set, have all of em too.. Heh, I still love that title..
And, for super hero action..
Alpha Flight #8 is one that comes to mind.. Man, I remember going to the local store and digging thru huge racks of comics..

Well, I am starting to feel a little guilty since my wife and I are trying to figure out how to afford a house in Silicon Valley! I've been scrutinizing my list to see if there's anything I can stop buying. Unfortunately, every time I do find something that I can live without, some new title is announced that seems fascinating http://www.sffworld.com/ubb/smile.gif

I'm a 30 years old, but I still buy the occasional comic to fill holes in series. I have full runs of Heavy Metal, Epic Illustrated, 1984/1994, Savage Tales, Warlord, Grimjack, Dreadstar, Scout, Sable, Lone Wolf, Crying Freeman, WildCats, Eternal Warrior, Shadowman, etc. - the list goes on - over 10,000 comics. My wife isn't too happy - we're running out of storage space.
