Comics Ate My Brain

Well, this can’t be right.

So I just finished entering about a year’s worth of comics into the Vast Comics Library’s spreadsheet (I still have the nine issues of Trinity and this past week’s books to do), and looking at the bottom line appears to yield just over 10,000 individual issues.

Let me repeat that: Ten. Thousand. Comic. Books.

My Dad called me last week to ask how many I had, because he’d seen someone on “Jeopardy!” with, like, 1,500. I told him I didn’t know, and I ended up lowballing my estimate.

Still, I can’t quite believe it. It’s all there in the spreadsheet, but it’s an awfully big number.

I don’t know if I should feel proud, a little embarrassed, or some weird mixture of both….
