    I have a box of these things and really don't know why I am keeping them. maybe for that day I might eventually sell them but I doubt that'll ever happen.

    So do you guys keep the books or toss them in the trash?

    I trashed most of them. I kept the ones I enjoyed reading. It's too bad that Hasbro ditched the idea, I guess it would cost extra $$$$, even though they already charge more than Toybiz did.

    I keep the ones that are repros of important issues..particularly the first appearance Spidey, Hulk, IM issues. A handful of others, like the Uncanny that came with Phoenix and some of those earlyearly Avengers reprints. The rest, I put in a bag and left them sitting in the hallway of my old apartment complex when I moved so that presumably some kid would find them. They were gone by the time I brought down the next load of boxes.

    Well, even if they are reprints, doesn't that still make them limited editions? Sorta?

    I still wish I had chosen the comic over the miniposter for my movie Punisher, that poster is lame. The poster&still album that came with Blade was pretty cool, though.

    Trash them. They are just a waste of space to me. You want be able to sell reprints for much anyway.

    dont trash them, thats a waste of paper...give em to a kid or something....or cut them up, and use them as wrapping paper for gifts...it always freaks my friends out when i use old comics as wrapping paper...its better then just throwing them out...and most of the time i only use ones that are bent or really crap...

    The wrapping paper idea is actually pretty neat. I would do that if the issues have no significance to you. Which apparently is most, so your set for next year's holidays.

    That's a cool idea as wrapping paper. I have some comics I can't stand reading so I can use that trick to torture others now.

    If I had trick-or-treaters at Halloween, I'd give em out then to kids.

    I read them when I first get them, but then they just take up space. Joe Quesada may be a giant douche, but he had a good idea: Leave them in public places (I wouldn't do it with ones I pay for) for someone else to pick up and read. Who knows? You could make a new comic fan out of a perfect stranger.

    :wink:

    That's my feeling. I have them but why? Not like I'll ever care about most of them. Maybe I will just leave them somewhere.
