Meet this week’s Featured Collector

Ryan A.

Location: Plantation, FL.
In 2010, I moved to the Fort Lauderdale, FL area from Detroit, MI, and got a job working at a local comic book shop called Zaldiva Comics & Collectibles (fast forward to today and I’m the store manager). During my first Christmas at the shop, my bosses gave me some store credit and I used it to put money down on the Ms. Marvel Premium Format Figure. It was my first Sideshow piece and I was hooked right away.

I grew up reading comics when I was a kid and watching all the cartoon shows. I feel like I have an attachment to each one of these characters, so having a physical representation of them in my home is really important to me. To me, there is a story involved with each piece. I try not to buy into the hype online, and to collect only the pieces that I really connect with.
