Just wondering if any mudcats were also current or past comic readers. I just rediscovered my collection that ranges from Marvels to old Freak Bros and Crumb comics. Where can I find out how much some of these are worth { the first dozen Conan's and Silver Surfers for instence } if I decide to sell these to finance my next guitar ? Do any of you stay current with comics now or is it something from your past ? Who were some of your favorites ?

Hal,

I try and stay current with some books. I still collect and I buy original art from all types of comics. AS you may know, like guitars and comic books, condition is everything. Conan #1 in NM condition might have a book value equal to a new Seagull S 6, Conan 1 in VG condition might buy you six sets of strings.   At A comic show this past weekend I saw Silver Surfer #4 ( Square binding, 25 center with Thor on the cover, John Buscema art I think) in Very Fine condition priced at $280.00. It was there in the morning at that price, it was there when I left at that price.

Give a message, I'll help if I can.

I was a bigtime comic reader, cos we didn't have a TV till I was 18 years old, and I have remained a lifelong comics fan. I had very little interest in the superheroes, but loved the old Dell and Gold Key adventure comics, the Disney stuff like Donald Duck and Uncle Scrooge (which had superb art and stories by Carl Barks), and I later was a fan of Howard the Duck, Groo the Wanderer, and Elfquest.

I also read most of the Classics Illustrated ones. The comics I have are not in mint condition by any means, cos they've been handled quite a bit. I always bought them to read, not to collect.

Some of the old adventure titles I recall were: Tarzan, Turok (Son of Stone), Magnus - Robot Fighter, Jungle Jim, Ben Bowie and his Mountain Men, John Carter of Mars.

Then there were the comics issued to go with various adventure movies, like Moby Dick or Davy Crockett. Had lots of those. There were plenty of western comics too, but I don't recall the titles.

I also liked Mr. Magoo...VERY funny stories with great art. I don't think there were more than maybe 10 issues of it, and I wish I could find them now. It totally outstripped the cartoon...as did the rest of them, in fact. Nothing beats the printed medium for subtlety and humour, when it's well done.

I have a few thousand comics. I like to keep them in good shape so I take care of them. I have friend who think I'm nuts because I also read them. They don't think I'm nuts because I read comics at 52. They think I'm nuts because I might damage the investment potential.

Oh well.

I gotta tell you I rode many a mile with my Schwinn Roadmaster, ball glove on the handle bars, Royal Crown Root Beer in my left hand and Captain America in my back pocket. The big difference now is it's a Plymouth Voyager, gas station coffee, and Xenozoic Tales on the passenger seat.

I used to read comics regularly, but haven't really continued to do so since the end of The Sandman. Everything else seems disappointing in comparison. I do keep checking out the DC Vertigo line to see if there is anything promising on the horizon, but have come to the conclusion I was much more a Neil Gaiman fan than I was a comic fan - though there have been a few others I enjoyed: Early Hellblazer, for example, and some short series like The Last One - also in the Vertigo line. Oh and a lot of Alan Moore, like Watchmen, V for Vendetta etc.

My mother must have thrown out THOUSANDS of my comics! I doubt if any of them were first editions, but ya never know. It's one of the reasons why, when thinking today about a great book I often have this two-dimensional picture of the characters in mind! Gawd, some of the "Classics Illustrated" artists were bad.

Thank Gawd, I'd already moved out when I started my Furry Freak, and Crumb collections.

Classics Illustrated were the only ones I had, I think because it was all my mom allowed, but also because they were what I was interested in. Loved them almost to tatters! I only have a few left, Count of Monte Cristo, Three Musketeers, A Study in Scarlett, and Jane Eyre come to mind. I used to get a new one about twice a month when mom would go to the grocery store.

Some Saturdays, after we cleaned house, I'd get to ride my bike into town, about 3-4 miles one way, go to the drugstore, get a bottle of coca cola, a package of sunflower seeds, and a new comic, go home and hole up in my bedroom readin' and spittin' and sippin'!

I've tons and tons of MAD, but, again, read almost to tatters because my kids all grew up reading not only new editions but also all of mine. Funny that mom had no objection to them. I guess the others must have been what I wanted and not so much her stricture. We quit reading them after Wm. Gaines died.

Of the various Classics Illustrated I fondly remember: Moby Dick, The Hound of the Baskervilles, Chief of the Cossacks, Julius Caesar's Campaigns in Gaul, Last of the Mohicans, The Three Musketeers, Cyrano De Bergerac, Ivanhoe, Robin Hood.

I still read and collect them. Between my CD's, LP's, tapes and comic books - we need a bigger house!

Don and Kat's separate mention of riding their bikes to buy their comic certainly bring back memories for me.   While my parents bought me some Disney comics when I was real young, I first fell in love with them in 1967. Amazing Spider-man #53 was the first one that I bought after a friend of mine told me about Marvel Comics. I was... amazed!   I still have that dog-earred copy and while it is worth nothing to a collector because of the condition,it is priceless to me. I collect them, not for their value, but for the pure enjoyment.

Comic book heros ARE modern folklore and mythology.   Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko and all the others who should be mentioned created something very important to our culture.

When I started college I drifted away for awhile, but after my kids were born I started into them again.    My son, who is 7, loves the movies and DVD's that we have collected.   Unfortunately comic books today are not created for that age group anymore, but they still offer some wonderful stories for adults.   I love the way characters like Spider-man and Captain America have evolved.   I've always been a fan of Prince Namor and I'm thrilled at the new mini-series that just came out.   Anyone read the new Rawhide Kid?   I was worried that it would become an excuse for homophobic humor, but they explored it in an admirable way - in my opinon.

Anyone mention the Spirit?

Now instead of the bike and the trip to the candy store to pickup these gems, I get in the car and head to the comic book store on Saturday mornings where my order awaits me.   Times they are a changin!

Excelsior!

Ron

Many of my bike trips up to the local drug store were when I was eagerly awaiting the Secret Origins Annual from DC with reprints of the first issues of the Flash, Green Lantern, the Atom and so on. I was never the biggest Batman or Superman fan, always prefering the other superheros. Same with music - I never liked the most popular ones.

Yup, I remember the Cardiff Giant.

Also the adds in the other comics were great. Remember how you could sell SALVE and buy a Schwinn bike. Wonder how many tins of salve you had to sell? Hmmmmmmm, pyramid sales for the very young.

Ads for Charles Atlas. Damn I'd have loved to have kicked that bully's ass on the beach (even though he left me alone cuz' I LOOKED big enough to fight!)

OH! And also in the backs of the Classics...little tidbits about Paul Revere...complete with totally wrong information, ha ha! George Washington too. Canadian bios always pointed out the WORST in our heroes (it's the Canadian way) so that we knew that DOLLARD did save the settlement from the injuns, but he also blew up most of his own men when he aimed the cannon the wrong way!! The Americans would have left that bit out.

We knew that our first Prime Minister (the Father of our country, so to speak) Sir John A Macdonald was a total depressive souse, before we read about any of his accomplishments.

Ever since Billy Bishop was recognized as the greatest WW1 flying ace, writers have been trying to figure out how he probably lied about his exploits. Hell, I knew EVERYTHING about Charlie Lindbergh longgggg before I found out he was a Nazi.

I know a LOT about Davy Crockett, Dan'l Boone etc. but very little about Raddison and Groseillieurs. Surely between then they killed at least ONE b'ar.

Rick points out an interesting fact, which is that a whole pile of obsessive readers were comic book fanatics, contrary to everything your librarian/parents/teachers used to preach about.


The one comic I would like to have again is the first one featuring Supergirl. For some reason (duh) it was like pure oxygen to my fevered adolescent brain. I always felt she was seriously underused -- also, how come she was underendowed in the chest area compared with Wonder Woman (not to mention her cousin Superman)? Was this a deliberate policy choice? yours, Peter T.

Liberty Meadows is a wonderful comic strip created by Frank Cho.    I haven't seen an issue in awhile, but the strips have been collected in a comic book. I believe Cho stopped drawing the daily strip, but I'm not sure about the status of the comic book.

Liberty Meadows is a cross between Walt Kelly's Pogo and Bloom County but with an adult sensiblity.   Liberty Meadows is an animal farm and the character that you mention is Brandy, an animal psychiatrist. The humor is full of double entendre "Nice beaver, Brandy" that runs afoul of the newspapers, which is one of the reasons he probably stopped doing it.   Check out the website - www.libertymeadows.com. The "censored" section is worth it!

Why does he draw Liberty Meadows with such voluptuous females?   Because he can!

And every one who wants to buy back that four color colection of memories, if it is available, its on EBay.

Mr. Magoo was probably a DELL/GoldKey book. And possibly Hanna -Barbera. Look on EBay.

I agree with Rick and Peter point out obsessive readers as often as not started with comics.

Frank Frazetta did many years as AL Capp on little Abner before he became well known for his comic and illustrative art. Frank's middle name is "Voluptuous". I think he was heavily influenced by Roy Krenkel and Al Williamson when they all worked at EC comics.

Kat, I suggest you find Xenozoic Tales, you'll be hooked again.

Hmm. Supergirl was pretty far along to be just a girl, unless girls on Krypton had delayed puberty. I seem to remember that her alter ego held down a job (cut to the "when do you become a grownup" thread).

By the way, did anyone ever explain why Wonder Woman had a golden lasso, an invisible jet plane, and the other rococco bits? I can figure the golden lasso -- just, though it doesn't figure in Greek Mythology -- but the plane? Were the writers drinking on the day they thought up her extras? Why not a plutonium pepper mill?

I will watch for it, Don, thanks. I interviewed an artist, a young man in Wyoming, a few years ago who had just had his first of a comic book series published. I'll have to see if I can dredge up his name - he was really talented and I felt some privilege at seeing his early work, the stages the finished product went through, and to visit so with him before any major success took over. He had already done some fine book covers.

Sheesh! I just found a Frazetta website and, I dunno, Cluin, yeah they've got nice arses, but those bosoms look mighty fine, too! And, now this page makes me wonder if Rog isn't sitting on a small treasure trove.

His, meaning Frazetta's, not rog's! are certainly more buxom than Vallejo's. His all seem just a bit too masculine to me. I like a little softness in my Amazons!**bg**

Julie Bell was a favorite model of Boris Vallejo's and then became his collaborator and wife. Julie would inspire me to do great things as well. Julie is however, not as well attenuated (sp) as most of the women Boris paints. With that being the inspiration it could explain the less bosomatic women in Boris's portfolio.

Frazetta did a TON of comic art.   Most notably in my mind is Vampirella.

That was me - I'm at work so I'm a "guest".

Frazetta had two distinct periods of comic book work - the late 40's and 1950's where he worked for a number of publishers including DC.

In the late 60's and early 70's he was THE artist for Warren comics.

Folks, check out Bill's blue clikie....it's fun.

Does anyone else here read exceptionally fast? I think that's another comic consumption result.

Were there any major Freudian slips during those more naive times?

I wouldn't say I'm a speed-demon, but I go along at a fair clip. I wonder if they are part of why I am such a thorough reader, too. Reading every inch of a comic, all of the little bits and pieces. I cannot skip anything in whatever I read, have never been able to. Have to make sure I've got it all.

Oh, and Bill's link? Naturally it is the REDHEAD who beats out the blonde and brunette and gets to have all the fun!
