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.

Ellie Frazetta, R.I.P.

I just received the following sad news:

July 17, 2009, East Stroudsburg PA: Eleanor ‘Ellie’ Frazetta, the wife of celebrated artist Frank Frazetta, passed away today to be with the Lord after a courageous one-year battle with cancer.

Eleanor Kelly was born in Massachusetts and moved to New York where she married Frank in November, 1956. She acted as his business partner as well as his lifelong companion. Known for her feisty personality as well as her intuitive business acumen, she was instrumental in successfully establishing record prices for Frank’s work throughout her life.

She is survived by her husband Frank, her four children, Frank Jr., Billy, Holly and Heidi, numerous grandchildren, and many friends.

A public memorial is planned and details will be announced shortly. In the meantime, the family requests privacy.


Startling Comics #53, Minimate Style

Here’s something pretty cool - a very creative gentleman used my scan as a guide to replicate the cover of Startling Comics #53, using some toys called Minimates.

Check it out on his web site:

San Diego Comic Con - Hayao Miyazaki

I plan to be at the San Diego Comic Con again this year. I was surprised to recently learn that legendary Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki will make a brief appearance at the Con. Miyazaki is famously reclusive and has never been to the USA before, so this is a big deal. He is considered to be something like the “Walt Disney” of Japanese animation. I especially enjoyed his films My Friend Totoro, Porco Rosso, and Spirited Away.

The Comic Con web site has a few more details:

Standard Guide To Golden Age Comics

Here’s that price guide I mentioned a couple posts back, which contains the market report that I wrote. It’s actually a pretty cool guide, with hundreds of pictures all in full color.
