I asked for people who wanted to donate bronze/copper/modern superman books to Mike to PM me. That is getting messy. So I am creating a post to handle just these books so we can eliminate any duplication of issues. I know it will happen but we can try and keep it down. So please list any Superman titles and issue numbers that you want to donate in this post. The way I look at it this includes any title from these time periods that include Superman. Action, Adventures of,Worlds Finest,DC Comics Presents,mini-series,etc.

 

If you want to donate and don’t want your name mentioned send me the list and I will put you down as anonymous. Also if you need the address to send the books,PM me and I’ll get it to you.

 

I do have a list from an Anonymous donator:

 

Superman Vol 1 #352 –407

 

Superman Special #1,2,3

 

Superman Annual #11.

 

 

From Aszumilo:

This story thouroughly disgusted me when I read it.

 

It's threads like this that make me proud to be part of this community.

 

Although I've never been a fan or collector of Superman, I'll certainly have a dig through my old DC stuff and see if there are any odd issues to donate.

 

If I find anything worth sending across to the U.S. you can most certainly have it.

suggestion, is there any way to just keep one master list going on the first post? I know it will take some editing on your behalf but otherwise this thread is just going to become a big jumble 2c

Really awesome of you, genrlzod, for helping to make this happen :headbang:

 

I'm so sorry that I cannot work too much on this right now, because we are also running around helping our recently arrived exchange student get situated and registered for school!

 

Just want to point out that all those interested in sending books should get the (not publicly available) address via PM with either myself or genrlzod. Please do not post this address anywhere because it is Mike's friend who does not wish his address to be out in the inter-webs.

 

Also amazing for me to see (although well-meaning) somebody in Facebook say that they have Mike's address to pass along. This is unbelievable since this will only attract more Garys to his house! doh!

 

I'm also not sure if all these donation funds that are being set up are legit. It seems best to just send Mike comic books or action figures. Mike's friend told me he really is saddened by the theft of his Captain Action figure with Superman costume. I'm going to re-post the original story from St. Louis Today because it does have the most detail about his collection.

Super fan could use a hand from Superman

 

BY JENNIFER MANN • jmann@post-dispatch.com > 314-340-8315 | Posted: Monday, September 5, 2011 12:20 am

 

GRANITE CITY • If Mike Meyer were a character in one of his favorite comic books, right about now he'd be looking up to see his red-caped hero swooping down.

 

Superman would use his X-ray vision and super hearing to track down the ill-willed individual who stole from him and hurl mountains if needed to capture him. That Meyer knows only the first name of the man, and can draw just a rough sketch of what he looks like, wouldn't matter.

 

"He uses his powers not to benefit himself, but to help others," Meyer said, explaining his fondness for the fictional character. "He's the champion of the oppressed."

 

Meyer, 48, of Granite City, has been on Social Security for a mental disability since age 23. To supplement that, he has worked part time at a McDonald's in Collinsville since 1996. He lives alone in a humble, two-bedroom home with his dogs: Krypto and Dyno. Just about every room is a shrine to his hero.

 

It's Meyer's starry-eyed worship of Superman, protector of the world as it should be, that makes the theft from his home two weeks ago seem particularly cruel.

 

Meyer was tricked out of about 1,800 of his favorite Superman comic books, some dating to the 1950s. He also lost many of his favorite collector's items: lunch boxes, an old-time radio, a Monopoly game and television set — all Superman-themed. The loot is worth about $4,000 to $5,000 in total, according to a friend who also collects.

 

The back bedroom of Meyer's house used to have nearly 100 Superman figurines tacked to the walls. Now, those walls are bare.

 

Also stolen was Meyer's Captain Action Superman figurine with costume, a sore point for Meyer because it reminded him of one he had as a child.

 

"A lot of that was sentimental, and he stole that from me," Meyer said. "He invaded my privacy, and he took away my peace of mind."

 

Granite City police are investigating.

 

Meyer bought his first Superman comic book for about 20 cents in 1974. Soon the then-10-year-old discovered he could also buy the back issues. That allowed him to delve into the character's earliest appearances in Action Comics, then follow Superman's evolution through the years, along with a changing lineup of costumed villains. Growing up, Meyer spent all his spare money on comic books.

 

"I had pretty much every issue of Superman from number 99 to the present," said Meyer, who keeps a hand-sewn Superman costume hanging on his back door underneath a brown trench coat.

 

Meyer gets giddy recalling the première of the first Christopher Reeve "Superman" movie, which his father took him to see on Dec. 15, 1978, at the B.A.C. Cinema in Belleville. His dad died when Meyer was 20; his mom, three years later.

 

Meyer said mostly only his friends and family knew of his collection, but he also made the mistake once of telling someone less trustworthy: a guy named Gary whom he worked with at the Hardee's on Madison Avenue in 1991.

 

Meyer said he ran into Gary recently while at Kyle's Baseball Cards and Comics in Granite City. Gary asked Meyer whether he still collected Superman items and asked to see the collection. Meyer first gave an excuse, but then Gary called him later saying he was in the neighborhood and hoped to stop by.

 

"He just kept talking like a salesman," Meyer said. "He wouldn't take no for an answer."

 

Meyer said he let Gary into the house that day and gave him a quick tour. Gary asked to see "my most precious comics," Meyer said.

 

The next night, Gary was back again, asking whether Meyer would let Gary's girlfriend watch some of his Superman movies. Meyer said while he and the girlfriend watched, Gary disappeared for a while.

 

Meyer noticed the theft two days later, on the morning of Aug. 24, and called police. All he knows is that Gary has dark hair, a goatee, is about 35 and drives a silver or gray car.

 

Meyer has taken heart in the fact that he wasn't cleaned out of his entire collection. Still, he said, "I have moments where I want to cry."

 

He sees Gary as a real-life Lex Luthor, calling him "a no-good excuse for a human being."

 

He noted, "That's pretty low if someone steals your stuff."
