Lee's Comics

Lee's Comics had a 25c comic book sale last Saturday. Sorry you missed it. I was asked to help out for some trade and gladly accepted since I didn't have anything particularly scheduled to do. It's amazing to me that when I was a kid comic books were worth something if published before 1970. With a few exceptions, that is still the case even though more time has passed since 1970, than the amount of time between 1938 (the arguable start date of comic books) to 1970, but books from 1970 aren't worth nearly as much as books from 1938 were worth in 1970.

It is a sign of changing times, where people are spending far more on homes, gas and utilities than on frivolous items such as comic books which hit their peak of collecting around 1993.
