Thank you. I spent years tracking that down. Then more years trying to get him to sign it. Then a year for a frame. It's been a journey .

@VaComicsGuy Thanks, I've always liked this damsel saving hero cover. Or did she? Lol.

For movie serial fans there are a variety of interesting collectibles ranging from lobby cards and posters to props and sales kits, but one of the holy grails for most serial collectors is the limited edition Valley of The Cliffhangers, an oversized book privately published by the late Jack Mathis in the mid-1970's.

This gold embossed leatherette bound, fully illustrated volume covers the entire history of Republic Studios serial unit with detailed entrees and synopsis of every production. An amazing labor of love, Mathis's magnificent book is highly prized by serial lovers and exceedingly rare. My copy...





There's a supplement that's also desirable, but less elaborate and much less rare. Both are a prized part of my collection.

That's an interesting piece. I collect movie posters and try to get in person autographs so the serial world has crossed into my domain once or twice and I've only HEARD of this book once in 30 years.

Great find

my holy grail was Avengers 1.when I was in school
the second comic book I bought was Avengers 277 the conclusion to masters of evil taking over Avengers mansion. that book got me hooked on comics.
I use to read the Ross ads in marvel comics and you could buy the first Avengers book.
fast forward to my adult life and my LCS had a Avengers 1 for sale. the owner just wanted their money back and was selling on consignment.It was priced as a VG and only 6 months before the first movie. so I bought it and sent it into cgc

it came back 6.5 offwhite pages
the book I would have loved to have back when I was 14

Here's a little bit of Turtles history I picked up this morning... way overpaid for a $2 comic book but eh, it has history behind it I suppose.
