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.

Action #1 + CGC 8.0 = $1 million

This probably shouldn’t be news to anyone who follows comic book news, but here it is: a CGC 8.0 (Very Fine) graded copy of Action #1 sold for one million dollars (US $1,000,000).

I think whoever bought got a darn good deal.


Web site status update

Hello everyone. I’ve FINALLY updated the individual comic background color codes, which indicate if a comic has been sold, is for sale, or is not for sale. Many comics have been sold, but I am keeping several, and a few are still for sale.


Comics signed by Bill Sienkiewicz, Sergio Aragones for Sale

I am offering some CGC graded Signature Series comics for sale on the CGC message boards.

  • Fantastic Four 223 graded 9.6, signed by Bill Sienkiewicz
  • Fantastic Four 229 graded 9.8, signed by Bill Sienkiewicz
  • Groo The Wanderer 1 graded 9.6, signed by Sergio Aragones - with CGC label error: says “Groo Chronicles #1″

Scans and more details here.


I’m With Team Coco

Well — he is a comic, after all.


Foreign Comics, and Stuff

Well, my big eBay sell-off is done. I haven’t updated the for sale/not for sale/sold status of the comics in my gallery here yet, but I will soon.  I’m keeping around 20 or so of my favorites, but I raised enough money to satisfy my immediate need for prescriptions, rent, and miscellaneous bills. A big THANK YOU to everyone who bid on my auctions.

Meanwhile, in other comic-related news, I’d like to share a photo I distributed privately but think others may be interested in too. It’s a photo of a few select books from my collection of foreign-published comics of American origin.

They are:

  • British - Ghostly Weird #1
  • British - Hulk #1 digest
  • British - Mystic #54, featuring Avengers #1
  • Australia - Batman #8
  • Brazil - Superman #42
