I'm some sad to see there's such little interest in the Duck titles. Dealers
don't even bother to bring Disney's to the local comic con, no one asks for
them much.
I still buy the Disney titles from IDW but I find I read one or two issues
every few months and the rest pile up in a stack that I need to read but
It's gotten to be a large stack. I'm finding I'm just not that keen on the
IDW stuff as I was when Gladstone or Gemstone was making comics.
I haven't even bothered with the other Disney comic publishers, I'm just not
as interested in their comic books.
I have been buying the Fantagraphics collections of Rosa and Barks as well
as some comic book reprint anthologies and omnibus's that have been coming
out lately.
I am amazed at all the collections of old comic books currently available.
Where were these collections twenty or thirty years ago when I was much more
Over the last several years I have gathered a pretty large collection of
Disney comic book scans and I find I am reading those over the actual comic
The whole collection resides on a HD not much bigger than of a pack of
cigarettes, and there's plenty of room for other stuff too.
As I get into my mid 60s I find I'm thinking of getting rid of the old paper
comics and keeping the scans to read in the future.
I'm not thinking I'll make a lot of money, there just isn't the market for
the old Disney's there once was.
It's more I'm thinking I'll get rid of a lot of weight and gain some space. 
As I move toward living in an apartment I have to give up some stuff as I
won't have the space I have in a house.
