Did you ever make good with his widow after you fleeced her for her husband's comics once he died?

Please, tell us more.

Is that you, Dr. Butt?

Yeah, yeah, I get that.
But why TEC and not just DC or DTC?
If it's shorthand, does it have to do with the distribution systems, and why?
Who decided that was going to be the code?

Sorry for hijacking your thread @BLBcomics.

Last year I had it grade by CBCS and it came back at a 4.5. I don't think this was part of the "TOM REILLY" collection but I did buy many a comic book from them including a LARGE amount of HOWARD THE DUCK magazines #1 (which I still have).


Here is the entrance to the first Comics and Comix Store #1 address of 2512 Telegraph Ave. Dunno about any #1 over on Irving St. I sold out from C&C in 1975 then opened my first solo store in Nov 1976 so by the time this pic is taken May 1977 I was taking over my ex-partners' location at 2512 Telegraph Ave near UC-Berkeley.

It's all cool. Peace.





I didn't get my drivers license until 1975 and my mother told me about this comic shop on Irving St. which I started going to in about 1978-79. I do remember walking into the that store and to my right was the counter and cash register and on the wall above it were many comic books one was that Capt. America 37. I asked how much was it and was told $30.00 or $60.00 in trade. I had recently bought a 3,000 comic book collection for $1,000.00 took what I needed and traded $60.00 worth for that beautiful Capt. America 37 (which I still have). I was sad when it closed.

It actually has to do with the way people pronounced the word detective. In the time Batman debuted the US was filled with newly arrived immigrants. They would struggle with DEtective, and shorthand it to DAtective, or just tective.

How TEC27 was thought up COULD very well be based on this.
