Common Sameer..is it a joke from you!!!..1st April is still far away.
Don't get frustrated due to lack of comments as the no. of comment is only a matter of time...the more time you will devote on blog the no. of comments will increase to sure!!
Anyway just think over it and selling your collection!!!!!!...are you fed up of it??..i don't believe man..i believe its a initial negative euphoria which will settle down soon.
Still then if you wish to adhere at your decision then kindly let me know what price do you expect for your collection.
It will be better if you can put a online auction process as that will provide you better chance to get a decent value for your collection.

Hey Sameer,
Didn't expect this.. I still hope this is a joke...if not, please reconsider.
Just consider this: if you love someone/something do you love because you expect something in return?..so if you love comics and love showing off your collection and sharing it with the world.. why expect something in return.
Do your part and in time you will get the returns.

Somehow this doesn't sound real.

Have you thought of those visitors who have been commenting on your blog?

I would repeat the two fundamental questions that are present on the subject of lack of comments:
1) For the bloggers: why do you blog
2) For the visitors: do you believe in the credo of saying "thank you"

I still can't understand why you wrote that post.

Sameer,

Didn't expect you'll quit so soon. Still can't believe this. Guess you have your reasons.

If you've firmly decided to quit, let me take this opportunity to tell you how much I enjoyed this blog & thank you for sharing your treasure with us.

Hi Sameer,
I am guilty of only reading your comics and not leaving any comments...but do not quit doing things you like just because nobody tells you how much they enjoy it.

On record -- thanks for all your posts and hope I am not too late to stop you...

Sameer and all friends
Hold On a Mo.
Dont quit yet and dont sell your collection even if u decide to quit later.
Firstly I am back. Flew out of Basra, Iraq on the 2nd march and got de-mobilised on the 3rd, came home on the 5th in UK.
De-mobilisation is a process when a military forces'reservist has to undergo a medical to ensure u r disease free, a psycho assessment to make sure you havent got PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) and de-kitting when they relieve you of your weapons etc.
Guesss what the first thing I did after my return. Check all comics blogs for my child hood memories. Internet access in Iraq was incredibaly difficult and strictly monitored so could not download anything. Most blog sites are filtered out.
Forget about quitting. I know it can be frustrating when u spend your valuable time for others and sometimes it is not appreciated. I had the same feelings when I got back from Iraq when I did not get the attention and recognition I thought I deserved from some of my friends and even family members (my elder son who is a teenager and is anti war has been very negative)has been ignoring me!Some of my medical colleagues here in UK actually have been complaining because of some extra duties they had to do on a few occasions. But there you go, I did it for myself and my beliefs and enjoyed it esp the adventures and the risks of treating soldiers in war.
I know we r talking about different scenarios but take a step back reflect on the good support you had before and basically if you enjoy what you doing, keep it up. You can count on my support.
Love

By the way the only phantom thing I saw in Iraq was the Phantom cigarettes for kids, the one you chew as sweetie/lollies.
This is the only officcial Phantom merchandise in my opinion as I have never come anything else apart from official Phantom collectables and memorablia etc.
Does any1 know the origins of these Phanton ciggys?
Have started a thread lets see how many reply.
Cheers

I'm sorry to hear this.

Even though it is the first time I'm writing a comment, I am (was) a big fan and a regular on your page. I did appreciate it and I want to thank you for the job you have done.

"ICC & CW are lucky to have so many visitors and commentors"

This is not true. The comment/download ratio is very poor for all blogs. CW, ICC, MTM and TPH realised that this is not going to change and that they would be satisfied by the visitor count. In such a short time you have 6000 visitors. Which is quite remarkable.
The reality is comments are not going to increase. All of us are just going to have to accept it.

Sometime back I warned you of over enthusiam. One post in about 10 days is all that anyone of our age group can manage. If we overdo it we are going to get frustrated. I do hope you change your mind.

When TPH stopped posting, when ICC took a leave of absence, when TPH stopped (before he arose like a phoenix) I was in despair. I thought I wont get any more comics. Now I have grown up a bit. Now I realise no one is indispensible. If you go, tomorrow someone else would come.

Sorry if that sounds a bit harsh. But all of us are disappointed by your post. Did something happend that we dont know about?
