    Fantastic Four Collecting Thread!

    Agreed on the brown covers (gray ones too #13). #50 is king of the brown covers though with that awesome green accent in the top left box. #11 is a choice issue as well with two stories inside. Always love visiting this thread. Great books. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Not to add to the speculation but I can offer the opinion from a professional illustrator/passionate collector myself. The two habits are different but there is a lot connecting them. Creating art and collecting it. Reference files are important and in the pre computer days many of my illustration teachers, and some went back to careers in the fifties, had reference files. Many had multiple file cabinets loaded with clippings. In fact there’s a saying among illustrators that goes “you’re only as good as your reference”. This was said to instill in young artists a sense of drawing from life and learning from the world around you instead of just “winging it”..... Essentially: good reference = good preparation = good picture making. The life of a professional illustrator/artist/author is busy (it’s not a job that you click in and out of 9-5) and then adding family obligations into it...there’s not too much time for recreational things. I manage to read a fair share here and there in stolen moments and have been lucky to find some time but a lot of the time the comics sit there....and that’s cool. Sometimes the collector is happy to know they are just there. Perhaps Edgar was going to read down that stack and get to them all “one day”....or perhaps they were all purchased at once or multiple lots and he never really got around to reading them....or maybe he bought two copies..one to store for his “archives” and one to read and then maybe give away...? We do know there were items already discarded before Chuck got there.....who knows what those were...reader copies of his favorites? I guess we will never know but it sure is fun to talk about it.
  7. Thread closed. Thanks to all for the great messages and for picking up some original art and goodies. Happy Collecting everyone!

    Stan Lee RIP

    I first posted this over in Silver Age but might as well add it here in comics general: Horrible news. We all knew it would happen one day as these years ticked by. Thank you Stan for everything. A true giant is gone. One of the things that always impressed me about him was how hopeful and optimistic he was about the world and future of comics. RIP Stan Lee.
