YAFQ: Fire!

Yet Another Friday Question:

There's a fire at your place of residence. You of course have first made sure that your family members, loved-ones, and pets are safe, and have already rescued your picture albums, heirlooms, and important documents. You have time to grab just one more handful of things before it finishes going up in flames, so which comic books do you grab to save from fiery destruction?


Me, I'm saving three things that are nearly irreplacable: the Flex Mentallo mini; Tales of the Beanworld; and my Curt Swan original Superman art pages.


How about you: which comic items would you save from the flames of fate?

Hm. From now on, I'm keeping a large duffel bag by my comics so I can get as many out in case of fire as possible. The ones I'd be sure to take are "DuckTales" #6, "Donald Duck Adventures" #21, "Amazing Spider-Man" #264, and "Web of Spider-Man" #2. All of these represent more to me than the rest of my collection.

Hmmm.. gerat question... I'd have to grab my Terry & the Pirates books, my near-complete run of James Robinson's Starman, and (embarrassingly) my fully complete run of All-Star Squadron.

There goes my indy cred...

I'd grab my issues of Zot!, Amethyst Princess of Gemworld, and some Yuu Watase manga.

This reminds of when I was a kid living in a tornado belt in the midwest. Through the summer I'd keep my most prized possessions (mostly baseball cards and G.I. Joe's) in a ready-to-run-to-the-basement crate. Good times. Nowadays I'd stick in that crate my multiple-creator autographed Gotham Central issue, a recent ebay purchase of some 1920s-1950s Swedish underground comics, the first comics I ever bought (a G.I. Joe 3-pack), my con sketchbook, and my Y: The Last Man collection.
