Bob Bretall has read every single one of his over 129,000 comic books. He currently has the largest collection of unique comic books in the world, and he continues to grow this collection every week.Man, this makes me wish that somehow I'd been able to hold on to every comic book I'd purchased over my 40+ years of collecting.
Bretall started collecting a child, and he doesn't just look for comic books. He had art, figurines and everything else to do with the comic world.
In this episode of The Vault, Bretall explains where he got his passion for all things superhero and comic strip.
I estimate the collection that currently dominates our office (and numerous short boxes around the floor, under beds etc) is probably a tenth of what it might have been.
