I did a bit of a search for vintage comic books for sale online and found a particularly good website based in Canada that syndicates the results from all other consumer and auction websites. Pretty neat. But I can't vouch for the reliability of the individual sellers on there. The reason I am so keen to start collecting is that my son has shown an interest in comics in recent months and I think collecting would be a great father/son hobby for us to take up. Does anybody else do this as a father/son team?

    It never occured to me to do a search on Facebook. Thanks for the tip sandsjames!

    Here's the website I was referring to in Canada by the way: http://www.canada.for-sale.com/comic-books

    And Just as we were about to have your #4 jersey retired..... Rainmaker was hoping that the talk about comics would convince you to come back!

    Comic books

    Figured I'd start a thread. Obviously feel free to remove if it's not allowed. I think there used to be one around here somewhere.

    April starts a short two book crossover with Batman and Flash called "The Button". Supposed to lead into the investigation to discover Dr. Manhattan/Watchmen being the cause for all things Multiversal and New 52/Rebirth, etc. Hopefully it's as good as most other rebirth stuff has been.

    Also, the first appearance of Penguin's son happens in next weeks Batgirl. Should be interesting.

    The DC Rebirth has really impressed me ... am liking the Justice League vs Suicide Squad book especiallly ... don't need to have too much background to follow it well enough.

    Yeah, the crossover is much better than I thought.

    Had a thought recently. Not sure if you read New 52 Justice League, but in the Darkseid War, Batman ended up sitting on the Mobius Chair. It gave him answers (Joe Chill was definitely his parents killer, there are three entirely separate Jokers, etc). I'm wondering if it will turn out that it also gave him insight into the Rebirth/Watchmen at all.
