Thank you Van Statten.
Yeah, it's a tragedy. The good thing about the comic book business is that you can now own them digitally so there's no risk on getting them damaged or lost. Granted, you lose the pleasure of having them physically.
I noticed you are a huge Doctor Who and DC Universe fan, I saw your posts on the New Additions thread (don't recall the exact name).
I've seen some interesting DC characters but I've always been more inclined to Marvel but eh, it's never too late to acquire new tastes.
