Tired of seeing overpriced "Pop Hollinger Rebuilt Comics" sold as if they are a pedigree restoration. :facepalm:

It often seems that Pop Hollinger rebuilt comics that didn't need to be rebuilt. He just liked trimming and taping stuff.

Flying Monkey seems to have removed all of his comics from ebay, so no Pop Hollingers right now...at least they were gone a few days ago...

This incredibly over priced comic. So very tired of seeing it

 

I need to adjust my search for Funnies on Parade to eliminate "Wanamakers"

 

http://www.ebay.com/itm/WANAMAKERS-TOY-WORLD-FUNNIES-1933-FUNNIES-ON-PARADE-FR-G-/231744009299?

 

 

Agreed. It's a great book that I would love to have, but not at a DTA price.

Hey Brian, did you ever make it out to DavidT Alexander / Terry Stroud's American Comic Book Company store in Sherman Oaks back in the day?

Yes, I bought my Dennis the Menace #1 from Terry...those were the days, when a comic with a chip missing from the upper left cover could be called "Mint"...

Yeah, but man they had the stuff. They would almost daily have collections of GA and SA walk into the store. They had 5 foot tall stacks in the back room un-bagged and un-sorted. I remember a 3 foot stack of nice Timelys back there once. Terry told me they walked in a few weeks earlier and they paid something like $2-$3. each for. Now, they didn't extend their good fortune over to us usually but if you were looking for something they probably had it.

 

They termed the phrases "Good Girl Art", "Injury to the Eye" and others and pimped out the outrageous horror books and bondage covers for a stiff price. I got my Mister Mystery #12 from them.

 

They threw some pretty outstanding parties too. The "bad boys" of comic dealing.

I'm not saying it wasn't a wonderland of books...I just never bought anything else from them. I liked going to Cherokee and Bond Street (I was banned from Collector's Books). I did go to see their warehouse once...a whole house full of comics and pulps...

 

And, I collect Esoteric because they coined the term and showed examples...why do you think I have the "Fish in the Face", "Muggsy Mouse" and "Elsie the Cow" books? I draw the line with "Muggy Doo, Boy Cat" tho...no need... lol

 

But, the real reason I didn't buy stuff from them was because I was sorta out of the collecting mode by the time they showed up. I was buying Amazing Spiderman...and that was about it...for a long time...I was one of those "On again, off again..." collectors.

I just learned that the most important creator in the history of the Golden Age is...

 

Kari A. Therrian

 

Just look at all the comics she authored!

 

Kari A. Therrian on Amazon

 

Then other people on eBay / affiliates link to her Amazon product and bump up the price for their cut.

Seriously, I'm guessing she just downloaded a bunch of files from the Digital Comics Museum and then uploaded them to Amazon's Create Space / Print on Demand program.

 

No problem with people packaging public domain material, but to list oneself as AUTHOR is disingenuous.

 

And it will continue to confuse, as standard listings for some old comics will be pulled from her "catalog", like this eBay listing for an original comic that has her as author:

 

Dell Three Stooges comic on eBay

 

Get that gar-bage outa the real GA section!

"This book is in the public domain" / "Copyrighted material"

 

Hey, that makes sense!

Here are the first 3 items that came up when I did a search on eBay just now:

 

-- Catman Comics #5 Photocopy Comic Book

-- Detective Comics #27 May 1939 Batman Coffee Cup Mug

-- Phantom Lady #16 Photocopy Comic Book

 

All of them listed in Collectibles / Comics / Golden Age / Superhero -- even though eBay's GA section has a "Reprints" sub-category.

 

What a bunch of dillweeds. Please do not buy from these bottom-feeders.
