New Collection Arrives 3,200 Comics
Spider-Man, Batman, X-Men

Howdy!

More good fortune came our way on Saturday, as yet another very nice comics collection was offered to us at our Jason St. Mega-Store. This latest collection was nowhere near as large as the two that I purchased in July, but within those 3,200 back issues were included well over 100 key and semi-key issues published during the 1980's and early 1990's, with a special emphasis on SPIDER-MAN, X-MEN, and BATMAN titles. Nice collections like this one come along seldom enough that I just cannot ever turn them away.


Some comics from the New Collection

That having been said, the sellers also realized the quality of what they had, and thus drove a particularly hard bargain. They also demanded cash upfront, rather than payments over a couple of weeks. The purchase price was obviously adjusted downward to reflect that immediate payment, but that adjustment did little to offset the fact that we typically limit our buying during early August, as that is precisely the time that most families with school-age children are investing in back-to-school supplies. Will Moulton and I both looked through this awesome collection, however, and easily reached consensus that we had to buy it, regardless of the timing.


Some more comics from the New Collection

The very fact that you are reading today's newsletter now provides you with an opportunity to score some of these scarce comics at a lowered price, but only if you can place your order with us by this upcoming Saturday, at noon. Simply put, in order to help us to recover some of the funding required for us to obtain this most recent collection, I am going to offer you a very limited time 50% off FEASTDAY codeword sale. This half price sale applies to all ten million of our back issue comics and magazines listed on our website, excepting only new comics, a few variants, and our CGC-graded issues.


Even more comics from the New Collection

So you know, all 3,200 comics from this newest collection ARE included as a part of this short term 50% off sale, as are all of Pam's New-In-Stock books from the past week. Also included at half price are all of the higher grade Silver Age and Bronze Age comics which we obtained in July. As much as I am averse to letting some of these great comics get away, sharing our good fortune with you makes the most sense. Please do enjoy this little sale with our sincere thanks for your continuing support of Mile High Comics.


Feast Day photo

I will leave you with a couple of final notes. First, Feast Day (August 12th) is the annual gathering day at Santa Clara Pueblo, a small traditional Indian village just north of Santa Fe, NM. I have attended Santa Clara Feast Day ceremonies for the past 16 years, as viewing their centuries-old dances and hearing their sacred songs is particularly inspirational for me. By sheer coincidence, I was at the Feast Day celebration in 2003 when I first began to feel the initial wave of symptoms from the virulent case of West Nile-induced encephalitis that almost killed me that year, and again in 2007. Since recovering from that dreadful illness, I have made a special point to attend Feast Day every year, primarily to give thanks for still being alive.


Avanyus are deities from the Pueblos, with one interpretation being that they represent the power of the never-ending flow of energy that permeates the universe. I had a prayer comprised of seven Avanyus inked on me after my second near-death experience. Artwork is by Van Gutierrez, a noted pottery artist of the 1930's. Used with permission of his family.

Second, while I am off on my annual pilgrimage to Santa Fe, our entire inventory team will be focused on adding even more comics for you each day into our Premium New-In-Stock and New-In-Stock links. Pam just killed it on Friday, adding nearly 1,000 different titles and issue numbers, many with multiple copies and grades. This amazing productivity was made possible by her sorting team providing her with restock on a huge number of titles beginning with "SE" and "SI." If you collect titles such as SILVER SURFER, SIMPSONS, SERENITY, SENSATIONAL SPIDER-MAN, SIN CITY, SECRET DEFENDERS, SECRET INVASION, and/or any other comics title beginning with "SE" or "SI," Pam has just added a cornucopia of scarce comics for you!

Happy Collecting!

P.S. Below is a list of SPIDER-MAN comics. Some that were contained in Saturday's collection and others that have been enter this past week. Will Moulton is grading even more of those issues as I write this newsletter, with those issues being available for purchase in tomorrow's (Tuesday) New-In-Stock. We will be grading even more of those comics all week, so it would probably serve you well to keep an eye on New-In-Stock each day...
