How did your family influence your comic collecting when you were young?
I was raised by my mom and fortunately she never gave me any flack for all the comics I was buying. She never really read much of them when she was younger but sometimes I would catch her reading my copies of Mad Magazine or Lois Lane at breakfast when getting ready for work. I know she enjoyed them as something quick,funny and entertaining. When stories about valuable comics started appearing in newspapers ,she thought her young son might be very rich soon.
I had more disagreements with her over rock n roll than comics
