About this journal

Although the ONE book that I started this Journal about is still my primary focus, on 29 April 2022 I changed the name of it to better reflect what this Journal has become since I started it.  As it's evolved it has become, at least to me, less about ONE book, and more about sharing my overall collecting journey while I ALSO look for the last 9.8 for my Registry set.  

I have been on the hunt for the below book for several years now. I have a 9.6 and a 9.4 (now TWO 9.4's!). I had the chance to pick up the 9.8 on eBay a couple years ago but at the time I still needed about 30 other books to complete my set and couldn’t justify the high price with so far yet to go. I am now at a point where this book is the LAST 9.8 that I need to have all books 9.8 or above in my set!  Whenever I start to regret not picking the book up when I had the chance, I stop myself... if I had done that there is no telling how that may have impacted the rest of my search and, who knows, if I had that book now maybe I would have missed out on other 9.8's or the many raw books that I had to buy to get the 9.8's that I made myself (check out my set to see some of those!).  The prolonged hunt for this book has also resulted in me meeting some cool people that I might not have met otherwise.  No regerts!

I’ve had a WTB post for quite some time and was able to obtain a few other books that were on the original post, from other board members.

I started this journal originally as another means to get the word out but also as a place where I can occasionally comment on how my search is going.

Thanks for reading and please let me know if you can help.

Triple Cover 9.8 Man of Steel 18!

I call this book The Beast... with a triple cover it must be BULLETPROOF! I could have included this with 'in the meantime' but I feel that this book is so awesome and unique that it deserves it's own entry! The full details of how I came upon this book are in it's slot in my addendum set here: https://comics.www.collectors-society.com/registry/Comics/PeopleSetDetail.aspx?PeopleSetID=148555 Not that it matters, but my opinion is that the 1st cover is also an easy
