Danzig became an avid collector of comic books (especially Golden Age comics), rare Japanese toys, occult books, horror related articles, b-movie posters, Japanese animation videos (especially Astro Boy, Black Jack, Captain Harlock and Devilman) and the skulls of deceased animals. He was an outsider in school.
Around the time he began writing music, Danzig worked in a comic book store in nearby New York.
Glenn Danzig graduated from Lodi High School in 1973, aspiring to become a comic book writer and/or photographer. He eventually started an adult-oriented comic book company, Verotik, in the 1990s.
Sometime in the late 1980s or early 1990s, Danzig became a student of Jerry Poteet, a world-renowned martial artist in Jeet Kune Do.
Danzig's personality has clashed numerous times with musicians with whom he has crossed paths. At a show in Tuba City, Arizona, Danny Marianino (lead singer of the band North Side Kings) punched Danzig after being pushed. The altercation was posted on the internet and became a popular download.
