Bang! Pow! Shezaam! Zap!

As it is with me, I am sure those words bring back memories for you, right? And, as such, you probably even remember where those were first seen. That's right! Inside the pages of your favorite comic books!

Many of us grew up reading about the adventures of Superman, the exploits of Batman and his sidekick Robin, or the misadventures of Hue, Dewey and Louie as they frustrated their Uncle Donald.

You may even remember those Saturday afternoon trips to the local store, searching the shelves for the latest edition of the Green Hornet or Wonder Woman comic books. You saved your allowance and lawn mowing money to afford those treasured comics and couldn't wait to get back home, hurry to your bedroom or hiding place and enter the wonderful world of your favorite characters' lives.

Well, those days might be gone, but they sure aren't forgotten, right? In fact, if you could, wouldn't it be great to recapture that time in your life and lay hands on some of those comic books today? Well, the fact is, you can! The question is, where to begin?

That is where we come in.

We have assembled a powerful eBook that will show you how to start collecting comic books, one edition at a time. You can start collecting comic books just like you did as a child but with a whole new reason behind it!

As a child, those comics were only interesting as long as you hadn't finished reading them. After that, they eventually became lost in the shuffle of life. However, now that you are all grown up, you understand the value they held beyond the adventures. Much more than just the story line or great artistry, there is money to be made! The fact is, comic book collecting has become big business.

If you have been considering a hobby, maybe comic book collecting is right for you. After all, as a child you knew what was a good comic book and what wasn't. Now you could draw from that insight and turn a hobby of collecting comics into another source of income.
