Comics Golden Age

The Golden Age of comics19

Collector michaelekrupp private msg quote post Address this user
Just acquired this beauty. A Publisher’s bound volume of all the Harvey Comics published for the months of March and April 1956. This is a one of a kind item in super clean condition. Most publishers kept bound volumes of their comics, both for editorial reference and for proof of publication. In the case of Harveys, Leon Harvey is known to have bound several volumes by title for his personal collection, many of which have hit the market over the years. These are distinguishable by the fact that they have his name printed on the binding. I have been tempted by a few of those over the years, but never pulled the trigger because many of them show significant wear. This one is direct from the publisher’s archives, and one of the nicest bound volumes I have seen.










There are many more comics in the volume, but that’s enough photos for you to get the idea. Notably, this volume only contains 11 pages of Richie Rich during these two months. It’s amazing how long it took Harvey to realize the full potential of their greatest star. It would be another year and a half before he was finally given a try out in Harvey Hits, and another three years after that before he received his own title. This is a truly awesome book! It is definitely a fantastic time capsule from the tail end of the golden age.

Awesome grab. I have always been fascinated by bound volumes. I still have yet to pull the trigger on one..but some day no doubt.

This is the first one I actually pulled the trigger on. Hard to justify the hefty asking prices for comics that have been trimmed and then stitched or glued into a book. However, after acquiring this, I can say with certainty that I am now on the lookout for more high quality volumes!

Just for grins, I'm always trying to find something that relates in one way or another to a prior posted image. Publisher bound GA volumes exist, but are pretty rare and none in my collection. Then it occurred to me, I don't have any leather or cloth bound volumes, but I do have Volume 2, #2 of Mystic with a bound beauty! Mission accomplished...

You actually have two bound beauties there, Cat, which definitely qualifies it as a bound volume 😉👍🍺🥃.

Thanks, the beauty on the lower table isn't bound, but appears to be unconscious or ...! Very creepy cover in either case.

Timely exposed a number of nasty villains trying to subdue beautiful women with syringes...
