I've cleaned out all dealers in the Northwest of romance books, even Hawaii where a shop had put some aside from a collection waiting for me to holiday there again to pick them up. Like this

That's a King Karen there... very cool. Now that I think about it, I have Kirby's from bout every phase. Crime, Marvel capes, DC 4th world capes on down to Topps and Silver Star. No romance though.

I’ll buy them all at fair prices, just shoot me a DM whenever you find them.

Or I’ll trade you for them, I have about 30 short boxes of silver thru copper books and about 40 CGC and CBCS slabs available for sale/trade.

Here’s a stack of slabs I have at hands reach in my guest/storageroom ( actually took a few pics but I have to load each individually so I stopped but yeah, just DM me when you find your romance books

Ten n Stimpy 9.8 newsstand……

Killing Joke 3rd print UK newsstand not a book you’ll see on eBay.

50’s war , PCH (have a decent amount of 50’s war books (75-100) in raw and maybe 20 raw PCH and 1 PCH slab….

Just a small example…..



m and a couple raws I have lying out (had a sheet of copy paper over each to keep dust off them) to be dry cleaned and pressed 🤷🏻

Just curious why?

Is your name Karen or your significant other’s name Karen?

Or is it based on the “Karen meme’s” that started circulating on the internet a couple years back?

I love collecting romance books, across the board.

Most silver/bronze romance books can be found cheaply- some not so cheaply and are tough to find, at all

But if you do the leg work, which is very time consuming, I have found that most SA/BA books are indeed out there, waiting to be picked up at decent prices.

I gravitate towards Romita and Pike covers, but there are a handful of other under appreciated SA romance era artists who deserve much more recognition than they receive.

Same here, but the northeast.

Over the past 2 years,I have switched more over to 40’s-70’s romance as my rabid collecting focus.

For the 2 year’s previous to that, I relegated my main focus towards DC Universe logo variant books, Timely & Atlas western books and 50’s war books.

I still hunt them down but switching my main focus up every 2 years or so is more fulfilling.

Timely western keys are a MF’er to find, here’s one I finally scored for a song off eBay a couple months back.

A 1.0 or 1.5 copy popped up in my mycomicshop want list last month, it sold within the first hour or so of it being listed at the asking price at $150 or so.

About the same grade as my copy.

I think it’s just a matter of time until Marvel , and the MCU films, start rebooting their 1940’s-50’s western characters- as well as Matt Hawk- Gun Kid 60, which is a book that has already become pretty pricey and if you get lucky, you can get a raw beater for $75-100 but that’s unusual.





The title was mislisted, and it was an auction. IIRC, the starting bid was $19.99.

I was the only bidder,

The Charlton nurse books are my #1 jams. Betsy Crane, Cindy Doyle 🔥, even the flying ones. Wasn't a great deal of them on the DC side.

I have a love/hate relationship with Romance comics writing. The endings are often predictable, just so many bad decisions, like my grandmother’s soaps. Yes, I watched the whole Luke & Laura saga, even the amnesia story arc 🫣

In general, I do like the humor and the artwork. It is good for the variety and breaks up the action stories.

Here are a couple of Baker’s and Millie when the title became a romantic adventure series with all the same characters (#113–153). Millie was a Humor book with Romance sandwiched in between.

Been doing a little research on the Harvey romance books lately. I was surprised to learn that Harvey did use female writers and editors for the romance titles. It definitely speaks to the pre-women’s lib culture of the 1950s with regards to the portrayal of the role of women in society.
