Plattsburgh resident builds himself a sizable collection

The Plattsburgh Press-Republican interviewed a guy in New York who's got quite a comics collection accompanied by memorabilia, and I'm decidedly pleased by what he says was his first personal purchase:
Scott was fortunate to be able to snag firsthand pick of whatever comics came in.

“Spider-Man was the first one I bought for myself,” he said.

“That was the Amazing Spider-Man #120. It was a battle between Spider-Man and the Hulk.”

Marvel Comics published it May 1, 1973.

“In that title, they had an appearance of the Incredible Hulk in it. They started out in a little bit of a fight, but of course later on, they are on the same side. They are not enemies.”
I think that story took place in Quebec, Canada, and came shortly before Gwen Stacy's curtain call. And, as I'd said in an earlier post about a store manager who's a Spider-fan, I'm glad when something that isn't Batman is cited as a favorite, though again, I'll still be much happier if and when somebody comes along who can cite Superman as a great pastime to boot. For now, I am pleased that Spidey gets some attention, since Peter Parker's world doesn't emphasize what Bruce Wayne's does to the max, and, Spidey's world often employed much more sci-fi elements than Batman's does.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
