Well, the rules haven’t changed; simply tell me why – in the comments section below – you deserve my comics! Be ridiculous, be desperate, and be silly and overly emotional.

  1. With the horrible impending possible digital only (shudder) world of the comics of the future, I’ll need a giant stack of real hold in my hands, smell of the paper throw backs to my childhood. Help me comics guru get a start on my comics stash. This comics geek is craving some comic book tastiness.

  2. Because I will love them more than my girlfriend. I suppose that’s why I’m single…. but I’m being honest about my love for comics!
