A historic day for the "Thinker"

Back in September of 1985 I was in Acme Click in North Canton and for some reason I was browsing the comic book rack when I noticed Iron Man #198.

Written by Denny O'Neil and Drawn by Sal Buscema. I picked it up and was hooked. Over the past 30 years I have worked at various speeds to fill in the gaps. For the past 8 to 10 years I was down to needing only 5 issues. Today I am glad to report that the final issue I needed arrived in the mail after I won it in an auction earlier this week. 

I now own all of the issues of Iron Man vol.1 including the annuals. I am very happy to have completed this 30 year journey. What an adventure it has been.
