Statues!

.. but it's those ****ing boxes would become a problem at some point. At least art can be either framed and hung or stored in a flat stack.

I'd stick wit comics and art if I had to start choosing.

The art has a personal touch statues never will (unless done as a commmission or a custom().

Having said that, I prefer to have them all.

I agree, if you have to choose it has to be about the source material...comics. I can't read or enjoy a statue or piece of art like I can a book. I can wind down the day by reading a few comics or re-reading a trade paperback, much better than what's on TV or most movies. The art and statues I enjoy owning and displaying, but it's just kind of limited in their appeal.

I stopped collecting comic books in 1980. I presently am collecting mini busts (and some statues) (all Bowen). The drawings are nice but I really have no interest in them.

The short answer is; mini busts.

It all started with the comics, so in this order:
comics - art - busts
