    Every few years my local Comic Shop will do a trivia contest, typically 100 questions and 0.10 in credit for each one right as well as getting your name in a drawing.

    This year is his 20th anniversary so its a 200 question quiz! Your allowed to take it ome and use the Internet so I try and find them all through searching & board posting.

    As such I'm going to post it here. Feel free to give it a shot and see how many you can get, if you want to help me out by all means post your answers [img]smile.gif[/img]

    I personally got right around 100 of them off the top of my head, can probably another 10-15 more with some thought. The rest will require research. Some are really easy, others are really hard.

    I used to be heavily into comics, in fact I used to own a comic book shop. 15 years ago I read pretty much every Marvel and DC book published, I guess it stuck! Now I'm down to about 10 titles a month, mostly GI Joe and X-men.
