Some Boxes




I had some time to kill with the kids yesterday evening and we happened to be near the “Comic Collector” shop (yes, that’s it’s name) in Sunnyvale, CA. They have many bins of strange old comics, typically for a dollar. In one stack of beat up coverless comic books I found these gems. From the top: Marvel Super Heroes 15 (1968) by Archie Goodwin, Gene Colan, Vince Colletta and Irving Watanabe; “Portrait of an Actress” from Girls Romances #159 (1971) drawn by Mike Sekowsky and Bernard Sachs (read the cover story from that issue here); Ensign Pulver (1964) art by Henry Scarpelli; and, unknown issue of Dennis the Menace, art likely by Al Wiseman.
