Suck it up, wusses. Everybody's Mom threw out their comics.

You know, Superman seems like a square type, but I think SUPERMAN'S PAL JIMMY OLSEN with Kirby definitively proved that he's one cool, counterculture-loving cat, and this poster clinches it.

I mean, all that stuff about him sitting down with headphones on and going on "cosmic trips" into Jack Kirby magazine collages...

And Dennis O'Neil writing about drug use in GL/GA is the ultimate case of throwing stones from a glass house. He had to have been on something when he came up with the idea to have Aaron Burr saved by a space civilization who declare him their emperor and give him immortality.

Actually, not quite everybody! My sister put all my comics into two cardboard boxes and stuck them in our basement. Then, unbelievably, the basement got broken into and my precious comics, along with some worthless bric-a-brac, were stolen.

I've often wondered what became of them. Did the burglars read them, and thereby learn the error of their ways? Did they sell them to buy drugs, thereby turning years of hard-earned pocket money into a quick fix?

My favourite line from the Spider-Man 2 film: Peter Parker returns to Aunt May's to find she is moving out, and asks in concern: "What did you do with my old comic books?"

My parents threw out all my old comics which I had kept safely away in our basement, during a spring cleaning. Sadly I wasn't an adult yet, I was in Jr. High! Only less than a handful of comics that I had in my room were saved. All of my old toys were thrown out that same day.

SUPER-TRAUMA, Beppo.

My parents liked to fool me they were moving. I would sell comix I didnt care about at the time like Blackhawk. With a limited allowance, it all went to Superman-Batman mags, Mad and the occcassional monster mag. Expendable income went on War comics with dinosaurs! :wink:

My Mads had a couple of years of extra life with my little brother, he also kept the grand total of two Marvel comics I had bought (Fantastic Four) and added them to some Iron Mans that he liked...
