A new week means a new post for Collector of the Week here at The Art of Fatherhood. As a fellow geek and collector of all things Pop Culture I wanted to showcase some cool collections that dads share in our community. We love to see this passion in what people collect. We talk about the latest movies, sports memorabilia, A GI Joe comic book collection and video games that we are enjoying at the moment.
This Week’s Collector – A G.I. Joe Comic Book Collection
This week’s collector is from Matt. Matt had a lot G.I. Joe toys when he was a kid. When he started collecting comic books he saw that G.I. Joe had their own series. He was really excited to pick that series.
I was with my friends at the comic book store and glanced to see the G.I. Joe logo from one of the comic book racks. I sprinted over to see if G.I. Joe had it’s own comic. I was excited to pick up a few comics from that series. I was done with playing with action figures at that time, but was thrilled to read the stories from my favorite cartoon series. After a while I was able to catch up on all the comics and had the whole series of books in my collection.
Thanks for sharing Matt. Really enjoyed the fact that your fandom of G.I. Joe could include comic books.
It can be comic books, bottle caps, records, helmets or whatever you are into! I want to see what your passion is and why you started up that collection. For me, I believe that in each collection lies a better story. I want to share your story! Feel free to reach out to me and share your collection.
