Hi all,

If you've been collecting for over 10 years you've
probably considered the following. Your collection has
grown to an enormous proportion. It's begun to take over
your living space and you wonder what you should do with
it. What do you do? Well, there's two options:

1> Get a storage unit or move into a larger home to store
2> Sell 'em.

I decided after 15 years it's time to get rid of the
majority of the 15,000 comics I've collected over that period.
It's just time. So, I've set up an on-line shop where you
can buy, well, MY comics and the majority of them are
dirt cheap. Check out Jonah Weiland's, The ComicVerse at:

Daily I'll be adding more product and making changes to the
site frequently. You won't find much in the way of new comics
there, I won't be buying collections and I'm not opening
up a comic shop. I'm just selling my collection slowly but
surely. I'd appreciate it if you stopped by and took a look
around. Click on the About link to learn more about what I'm

Thanks and don't forget that CBR is updated daily with news,
columns, commentary, features and much more. If you miss a
day, you miss a lot!
