What is in the comic book box, will Dustin Hoffman sign my ‘Hook’ comic book

Nostalgia.

Hook comic book MarvelThe love of tin lunch boxes, the taste of Wonder Bread, and need for comic books.

I have too many. I not even sure I know what I have, sooo…

While sorting my comic collection after my recent move I was floored the number of movie and TV inspired books that I’ve accumulated. The obvious stuff: Star Wars, Trek, X-Files, Terminator, Aliens, etc…then there’s the rest: from Bill & Ted to Indiana Jones to Hook and even, Married with Children.

Maybe some I have held onto for obvious reasons: The Twilight Zone, for instance, is a great read.

But how did Hook survive all of these years?

Why wasn’t it appropriated at the last garage sale?

What is wrong with me?

Well, I decided I needed a story – an excuse if you will.

Have you ever wondered what you say if you’d meet certain celebrities?

I mean the “A-list”, the elite – Dustin Hoffman for instance. Well, this is my in. How many times has he heard about “Rainman”, “The Graduate”, maybe even “Family Business” – maybe not. Well, nobody goes up and chats with Hoffman about “Hook”. I could throw down about “Wag the Dog”, “…but imagine the look on his face when I extend a copy of “Hook” and …” oh god, nevermind.

I toss the “ish” into the garage sale box.

What?

I’m keeping the Ren and Stimpy. At least I don’t own a “Phantom Menace #1”, the photo version with Qui-Gon on the front.

Hmmm, or do I?
