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.

Rudy Palais Pulp Art

I recently discovered some work by comic book artist Rudy Palais in a 1950s science fiction pulp digest. Palais has two illustrations in the June 1954 issue of If - Worlds of Science Fiction. You can click either image below for a larger view. The artwork is interesting as it does not look like Palais’ usual comic book style. In fact, it kind of reminds me of the art of Palais’ Harvey co-worker Howard Nostrand.

ALSO, my big eBay comic collection sell-off continues. Please check my listings here. Every bid helps….

For Sale on eBay

The Obama Economy continues to drain my resources, and so treasured collectibles get listed on eBay. No reserve and $0.99 opening bid prices ensure many comics will sell for bargain prices. A lot of great books are available, now is the time to bid! See my eBay listings here.

Heritage Lawsuits at www.hvsh.info

As a former Heritage Auctions¬† employee, I had been intrigued by the now-defunct heritageauctionslawsuits.com website. I’ve recently discovered a new web site following the lawsuits against Heritage at http://www.hvsh.info

It’s worth checking out if you’re interested in the ongoing legal problems of Jim Halperin, Steve Ivy, Greg Rohan, and company.
