I went to the 50% off sale at a local comic store this past weekend. I actually went twice: Friday (their website said they were open until 7:00 . . . but they actually close at 6:00 and I didn't have time to finish shopping). Saturday (finished shopping!).

I ended up buying 36 Silver and Bronze Age issues
* Weird War Tales



 

Oh my. I loved that comic.

A near mint condition copy of a 1941 comic featuring the first appearance of Captain America has been sold for over three million US dollars (£2.3 million) at auction.

The sale makes the Captain America Comics No 1 one of the top five most valuable comic books in the world.

The edition features the well-known Marvel superhero, played by Chris Evans in the film franchise, punching Adolf Hitler in the face on its cover.

It also introduces readers to Captain Americaís sidekick Bucky, played by Sebastian Stan, and their Nazi nemesis Red Skull, played by Hugo Weaving.

The final sale price was 3,120,000 US dollars (£2.4 million), and the item was sold as part of Heritage Auctionsí comic and comic art events in Texas.
At the same auction a CGC NM-9.2 copy of the Fantastic Fourís 1961 debut sold for 1.5 million US dollars (£1.1 million) (Heritage Auctions/PA)

^ They name the actors in the movie, and nothing about Simon and Kirby?  Question

It may be my native Celtic gloom peering out but it has felt to me for a long time now that the comics industry is in a serious gully as far as quality and imagination. I think that's afflicting a lot of other fields in the entertainment industry but with comics it feels particularly, dismally true.

One example, they ended Hellblazer a decade or so ago in the midst of a great run, then brought it back as this train wreck of woke awfulness.

That's just one case but it's indicative of what I've seen among graphic novel offerings for most of the last ten or fifteen years.

We went through a golden age in the late-20th century and even for a while in this century comics rode on momentum, and then it is like the bottom fell out of creativity. I have looked hard to find something new to interest me and I haven't found much, and what I have tried to delve into hasn't matched the quality of a generation ago when we had The Sandmen, The Watchmen, Sin City, Ghost World, Hellblazer, The Cartoon History of the World, Maus, and so many other great series either having just wrapped up a good run, or they were still ongoing at the same time.

I don't read super hero comics, never have no matter how many times people have tried to push Batman on me, so maybe that part of the field is doing great, I have no idea. But as far as graphic novels that radiate their sheer brilliance....it's been a long time since I've encountered anything new or relatively new that has impressed me.

I know I grew up amid a once-in-a-lifetime run of freakish greatness in the field, but I hope things turn around eventually and some new blood comes in with talent to bring out what comics can be.

And by the way, in my day we had to trudge barefoot seven miles through hip-deep snow to get to comic shops!

You had comic shops? You have no idea how lucky you are. In my day we'd to make our own comics with 2nd hand toilet paper and our own blood for ink.

Last week a local comic store put out boxes and boxes of comics for $1.00 each. They much have had a few thousand comics in those boxes. I ended up buying just over 50 comics from the 1980s and early 1990s (that's sort of my usual cut-off point because I think comics went drastically downhill after that). They are all in excellent condition. Most of the ones I got were SUPERMAN or ACTION COMICS (starring Superman). But I also got 1 FANTASTIC FOUR, 1 EVERYTHING'S ARCHIE and a few IRON MAN. I didn't have time to look through all the boxes (which probably would have taken about 3 hours if I wanted to do a thorough job), so I probably missed out on a lot of good stuff.

I, myself, lost interest in comic books about 1979. And yes- I prefer Marvel over DC.

A local comic store just had a 50% off sale. I grabbed 30 comics, including a huge run of Kamandi (I have #1 - 58 and just need #59 to complete the series) as well as some Daredevil, Weird War Tales, Iron Man, Green Lantern, Detective, Jimmy Olsen, Lois Lane and House of Secrets.

I finally decided to move my comic boxes off the floor in a spare bedroom. I bought 4 Origami foldable shelving units for the basement. Each one has 4 shelves that can hold up to 250 pounds (much less if you put the wheels on, but I'm not using the wheels). I'm using the bottom 3 shelves of each unit for comic book boxes and I'll use the top shelves for some of my board games as I'm completely out of shelf space in the spare bedroom.

The Origami units are great. They come already assembled (except the wheels) and are folded on hinges. You just remove them from the packing box, unfold them and snap 2 locking clasps into place. It takes less than a minute to set up each one. Which is great for me because I hate assembling things.
