We all have secrets.I saw this picture in the Sunday newspaper and thought, “That was me when I was around 10”.
I collected and read and re-read all the Spiderman comics I could afford. Much of my pocket money went on these comics. I even branched out into Daredevil, Fantastic Four and Thor.
Captain America was a bit too American so I passed him and the Avengers by. Whereas Peter Parker was a Science whizz, just like me.
My collection was stored neatly in an old cardboard box and kept under my brothers bed, (we had bunks and being the oldest I had the top one of course). But leaving home to go to Uni, Mum insisted I get rid of the lot. So I loaded the lot onto the bus into town. I went into the second-hand Comic Book shop on Gilkes Street near the old Swimming Baths and got around £5 for the lot. I think I may be underestimating it to say they would be worth around £10,000 nowadays.
I still miss my Marvel Comic collection.
