When I was a kid growing up one of my favorite pastimes was making models. I had a friend that lived adjacent to our house, and he built them and got me into them. I started out making plastic planes and cars, and gradually, when they came out, built some of the Universal monster kits, like Dracula, Wolfman, and so forth. For some reason, I don't think my mom liked those very much. She also had a disdain for me reading Mad magazine. I also, once they came out, built some of the Big Daddy Roth models, and spinoff type models like Rat Fink, the Werid-O models, and so forth. I don't think she like them either. When we moved from East Texas to West Texas the models were one of the things that had to go. I have to hand it to my parents, however, they got rid of them discreetly, and I never knew they were missing until many years later. And to tell you the truth, by the time we had moved, my interest had switched pretty much to music. I wish I had kept up with buying a few comics back then as well, but for whatever reason, that wasn't within my area of awareness at the time either.
If you are a comic or more specifically a Superman fan, you should check out the podcast called thesupermanfanpodcast.blogspot.com They have podcast-a-plenty on the Man of Steel, and can be pretty fun to listen to from time to time.
