  3. If you're a fan of pulps and paperbacks, you may want to attend the 2019 Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention (April 12-14, 2019 at the Westin Lombard Yorktown Center). There will be several dealers there with vintage comics as well (among our 180 tables in the dealer room), though the focus is more pulps and paperbacks. This year's show will kick off the first part of the Robert Weinberg Estate Auction, will be held on the evening of Friday, April 12, 2019.Here are two of the rare British paperbacks that will be in the auction, both reprints from the pulps.

  4. Here's a small, 32 page (plus covers) pamphlet, "The Case Against the Comics," published in 1944 by the Catechetical Guild, written by Gabriel Lynn. This warned against comics, which were fueling the rising tide of juvenile delinquency. And, of course, they were also a menace to chastity, as well as creating fear and distress in younger children. And superheroes, who act outside of the law, were viewed as un-American and a threat to democracy. Whereas the dime novels of the previous generation, such as Frank Merriwell, were good, wholesome reading. Among the things their study of 92 comic boo

    For a review of the show earlier this month, you can see one at: http://mysteryfile.com/blog/?p=54846 We pick our dates a few years in advance, before C2E2 announces their's, so it's just been coincidence that we've been the same weekend the last two years. In 2019, we will not be; we're on April 12-14, 2019, again at the Westin Lombard Yorktown Center. We do have comics there, though as noted, it's not a comics show, as the amount of comics there is small in relation to the overall room. A few dealers there specialize in them, but more will have a box or two or three at their

    Our 18th annual convention! Held at the Westin Lombard Yorktown Center in Lombard, Illinois. 155 tables of pulps, comics, paperbacks, movie memorabilia and other vintage paper collectibles!
  8. Well, we're now four months away from the 2018 Windy City Pulp and Paperback Convention (April 6-8, 2018), which will be held at the Westin Lombard Yorktown Center in Lombard, Illinois. We're pleased to announce that we're now sold out of tables in the dealer room (all 155 of them, our earliest sell out ever!). If you'd like to be placed on the waitlist for a table, please let me know. The hotel has created a website to make it easy to book a room for the convention; the link is below. We hope to see you all there next year! https://w
  9. “The Art of the Pulps”, co-edited by myself, Ed Hulse and Robert Weinberg, came out earlier this week, on October 24 from IDW. For me, it was a long wait, but I think the final book was well worth it. Bob and I actually started preliminary work on the book back in January 2016, so it’s been nearly a two year project for me. Bob unfortunately passed away in late September 2016, just as we were about to start working on it in earnest, but fortunately Ed Hulse was willing to step in and help see the book through to its completion. I think Bob would have been very pleased with how it came out.
