Welcome to my gallery of classic comic covers. I've been collecting comic books for over 25 years and made this web site to share some of my favorite covers. All of the covers, with a very few exceptions, are (or were) from my personal collection. Have a question or a comment? E-mail me, my name's Ben.

San Jose Ink Stamp

Ink stamps on comic covers are sometimes interesting, a mark of history of some kind or another. One of the most commonly seen ink stamps is from Bonnett’s book shop in Dayton, Ohio who must have ink-stamped thousands of comics over many decades. My copy of Green Lama #6 sports a Bonnett’s ink stamp; one of my friends even made a pilgimage to Bonnett’s, and discovered that the current owners still have the old rubber stamp!

One of my old romance comics has an ink stamp I’m not familiar with, from the “San Jose Book Shop”. I am curious if anyone knows anything about the shop… is it still in business? Did it sell many old comics from the 1950s? Do other collectors have comics with the same ink stamp? Inquiring minds want to know.
