"The nostalgia was palpable as participants provided photos and/or memories of their cherished classic comic stomping grounds. I hadn't given much thoughts to my own local shops for years, and this discussion had me spending hours on google maps, trying to figure out where they'd been located."
"There were so many bad ideas over the decades. It was neat to discuss them in one place. It made me feel like I was in a LCS discussing stories."
"Truly insightful and interesting to read someone else's thoughts, remembrances and adoration of collecting comic books throughout their life. " -- brutalis
"It's always interesting to see what other people here think about various comic books and comic book characters, and there have been some great discussions in that thread." -- lobsterjohnson
"It's one of my favorite threads-it's always interesting to see what people are buying, to discover new books I didn't know about, the cheer for people as they acquire their holy grails or cheer along as they work towards completing long collected runs, marvel at the deals people get and get to hunt comics vicariously through their acquisitions. It's full of comics joy, which is refreshing when there is so much negativity in this hobby at times (not here so much, but on the interwebs as a whole where comics are concerned). " -- mrp
