5,000+ Half Price Silver Age Comics Just Added
I'll start off today with a brief mention of two long-lost photos. Way back in 1979, I was interviewed by the Rocky Mountain News. My good friend, Mike Kott of Intergalactic Trading Company, discovered a copy of the newspaper containing that story in a box that we accidentally sent to him, and kindly returned them to me yesterday.
As a part of that news article, two photographs were included, one of me alone, and the other of Nanette and I together. I thought that those of you who have known us for a while would like to see how we looked when we were still in our twenties...
Chuck and Nanette
Fast-forward 33 years, and Morgan Spurlock's film team has now dubbed me "The Survivor" in their new
COMIC-CON EPISODE IV: A FAN'S HOPE
documentary. While somewhat a melodramatic attribution, I guess that name fits, as I have seen the entire comics world change drastically during my 42-year career, and have managed to find ways to outlast a great many of my less-fortunate peers.
That having been said, I am still filled today with the same degree of hope and optimism about the future of comics and graphic illustration that I had as a very young man, so that part of me really has not changed at all. (click on any of the images for larger views)

Speaking of the Spurlock documentary, it will be coming to Denver in two weeks, on Friday evening, April 21st at the
Denver FilmCenter Theater
on East Colfax. I will be attending the 7 PM screening that evening, and will be participating in a Q&A afterwards. If you live near Denver, and would like to see a really fun and heart-warming film about the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con, you should join us! Other cities screening COMIC-CON EPISODE IV: A FAN'S HOPE are as follows:
New York, NY,
Salina, KS and

Fantastic Four #12
Moving on to news from our website, Pam and Will have finished grading and entering for you the major
Golden Age and
comics collections that we purchased at the beginning of this week. As a direct result, our
list for this past week is the largest in our entire online history! Just to cite a few examples, we added
TALES OF SUSPENSE #39 (1st Iron Man),
JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY #83 (1st Thor),
SGT. FURY #1, and
SEA DEVILS #1
into our listings just yesterday. That's on top of the copies of
FANTASTIC FOUR #1-#12, and
that we added earlier this week, just to name a very few. We even added over 500 pre-code (prior to 1955...) Golden Age comics this week, so no matter what titles you collect, the odds are excellent that we just listed some rare comics that you would love to add to your collection...
While the overall number of great pre-1980 comics that we just posted into our website inventory exceeds 5,000 issues, I will caution you that we only received single copies on most of these cool older comics, and they are already selling very quickly. Especially in light of the fact that they are almost all available at half the prices listed on our website when the current MADNESS! Codeword is used (please keep in mind the codeword does not apply to new comics, trade paperbacks, hard covers, graphic novels, CGCs, treasury sized items, statues, or supplies).
If you would like to purchase any of these wonderful older comics from us for your collection, please be sure to place your 50% off MADNESS! order with us right away!
While I have been emphasizing our fantastic pre-1980 comics in my newsletter this week, I did also want to make note of the fact that we have also discovered more than 40,000 (!) modern and new comics during just the past ten working days. Click on any of the
publisher links at the end of this newsletter to view the immense numbers of comics that we just added into our website inventory for you.
Box #1 Larrys
Included among those great new comics were a few copies of the very rare
MUSIC BOX (2009) #1 LARRYS VARIANT EDITION.
If you would like a copy of this rare variant for free just place any order with us this week for $50, or more, and then ask for your free copy in the Notes area of our online order form.
A second giveaway that I can offer you today is the $19.95
MIGHTY AVENGERS HARDCOVER #4 SECRET INVASION.
If you are willing to cover just the shipping surcharge ($2 in the USA, $6 International) on this cool AVENGERS hardcover, we will give you a copy entire for free simply for placing a $20 order with us, and then asking for your copy in the Notes area. How can you beat getting a brand new $20 Marvel hardcover book for only the cost of shipping?
HC #4 Secret
Invasion Book 2
My only other news item for today is that I will be drinking coffee and sorting comics at our new
Jason St. Mega-Store
tomorrow from 10 AM - 3 PM. We had originally planned to have an Open House event tomorrow, but circumstances forced us to move the date of that big sale to April 28th, instead. That having been said, I was planning to work at Jason all day tomorrow (Saturday, April 14th) anyway, so I'm going to offer to unlock the doors, and spend the day chatting with folks who stop by to visit.
We did just set up a huge new Golden Age and Silver Age display (including most of the great older comics that we purchased this week...), so this would be a chance for those of you who live in the Denver area to actually examine in person many of the older issues that we just listed on our website. I will be selling items tomorrow, and the 50% off MADNESS! codeword will be in effect on of our back issues comics, except new comics and our CGC-graded copies. Join me tomorrow, if you can!
The address of our Jason St. Mega-Store is 4600 Jason, which is just two blocks off the Pecos St. Exit from Interstate 70. You can call 303-477-0042 for further information and directions, or
for a map of our location.
