I was cleaning out my room today, getting rid of old books and the like (I have a problem with packrat-ism, it runs in my family), and I came across crap I did not know I had. At some point in my past I bought the first three trades of Spawn, as well as the Violator mini-series.
I feel dirty knowing I spent money on these things, and worse knowing that I've had them in a box for years.
Make me feel better, GV? What are you almost too ashamed of buying to admit?
I also have a comic where Spawn fights Batman, and Batman gets giant power gauntlets to fight Spawn after Spawn kicks his ass.
Oh god... I need a shower.
I'm ashamed I spent so much time and effort getting those comics. Same with my 9/11 Spidey comic. That one I am truly ashamed of.
I just remembered the spawn t-shirt I used to have.
What the fuck was wrong with me? Can I blame my parents? Did they not beat me enough?
My current shame is my constant purchasing of overpriced hardcover reprint collections.
TylerJ on League of Legends (it's free and fun!)
I've also got almost every Wildstorm comic ever published - including Wildcats 2.0.
And all of the Ben Reilly issues of the Spider books, plus most of the Clone Saga.
And the Red/Blue Electrical Superman arcs.
And yeah, plenty of Spawn.
But wait - this is a shame thread. And these books are fucking awesome. Nevermind me.
Oh god... please forgive me...

I was a big fan of WildCATS, mainly because of Jim Lee and the cartoon. All those worthless mini series, a series that kind of went to crap after they came back to Earth during Alan Moore's run, and the delays (Grifter's series was good though, early Stephen Seagle work).
let's keep our shames comics related
I also thought it was really cool when he was afflicted with THE MADNESS and grew a few extra arms, a dozen or so extra heads, and then smacked around the Juggernaut a little.
Well they're mixed in with my marvel trading cards and I bought them at the comic book store I used to frequent. So sometimes I go through my collection and that wall of shame hits me in the face. I guess I should also add that's the only thing I have weaboo related.
probably not a shame though. It still seems like it was real rad.
And I still buy it and like it so you can all go to hell.
I also may have spent a large amount of money on the Malibu/Marvel Relaunch called Black September. All those #1's (or were they 0's or Infinity's?) were so hard to resist. But again, once I read them I began to realize that I had just been had. Some of those relaunches were horrendous.
I say almost, because I own this Justice League Annual.
I also have some Spawn stuff, that Batman crossover included, which is written by none other than Frank Miller. (It's kind of so-bad-it's-good, kind of not.)
Since I don't ever have a ton of money and have to be pretty scrupulous in my purchases, thus going from recommendations a lot, I don't have an abundance of shitty stuff in my collection (or an abundance of anything, really). Sometimes you wind up with something like Venom Vs. Carnage, though, or Spider-Man: The Other. :P
I also used to buy a ton of shitty manga, back in my awkward high school days, but have since sold most of it on eBay, except for the stuff that's actually good, like Onizuka, a dabbling of Lupin, Drifting Classroom, Good-Bye by Tatsumi, and, say what you will, the manga adaptation of Evangelion.
That's the one where some hot lady turns homeless people into cyborgs (the efficiency of a robot and the deadliness of a hobo!), Batman turns a pair of robot fists into strength-augment gloves to beat Spawn, and then the inevitable team-up ends with Batman embedding a Batarang into Spawn's hamburger face, right?
Dude... I would sleep in Gambit pajamas NOW.
And why don't they make Spider-Man sheets in Queen size?
Maybe next she'll convert your race car bed into a Batmobile.
also I have no shame whatsoever
I recently bought an entire run of Marvel's Blackwulf
it looks like this
Now that I think about it, this might be the most embarrassing thing I ever owned. For those who don't know, Nightwatch was a Spawn knock-off who spun-off of Maximum Carnage, which makes him like double '90s.
Also, steel gauntlets.
Edit: Fuck you and your edits, Robos, I wasn't talking to you
