Always felt that THE HEAP was a true comic book creation.

- I had a few old Airboy comics that had Heap stories. Definitely an under appreciated character who had to be the inspiration for both Swamp Thing and Man Thing.

Vast majority of your collection is in raw state, Marty? Do you use bags/boards, top loaders, or some other form of protection for your collection?

Over the years I've used a variety of bags to store my books...
in the beginning I used Freezer Bags, then bags from a local Comic
Book Store and for the past few years I've stored them in 2 mil
Archival Mylar Sleeves with thick Museum Grade Buffered Backing
Boards...both from BAGS Unlimited.
They are then stored in both Compact and Long Plastic Corrugated
Comic Boxes.

I love the history details of your collection. That is why I collect pedigrees. Not because they are better than the other copies of the same issues. But because of the stories and history behind them.

Kudos to you and your collection. You are one of only a handful of people to stick with the hobby for so long. Most of us are on and off many times.

Thank you for your kind words...little did I know back in the 40's
when I was picking Comic Books from the Newsstand that I would be
sharing them with so many collectors this many years later.
I truly appreciate everyone's interest in my collection.

I remember being told as a little kid digging in the sand at the
seashore that if I dug deep enough I'd come out in China.

These ads were sometimes as enjoyable as the stories in the comic.

I remember this was the first comic book I bought after we moved
from Newark, NJ to Augusta, GA. I had never seen this character
before.

Always thought this was a stand-out cover...and it was the last
MARVEL MYSTERY COMIC I ever bought.

I believe this is the only graded copy of ZOO FUNNIES #101 (#1).
And it might be the FIRST CHARLTON COMIC BOOK.

One of those missing cover comics that I always enjoyed...I think
the character HURRY KANE appeared in some other comic book but I'm
unable to remember where.

One of those covers that has nothing to do with the stories inside.

The character HARLEY QUINN reminds me of THE HARLEQUIN in GREEN
LANTERN stories.

I've been on the lookout for a copy of this book lately as Captain Marvel visits my hometown, Kansas City (with accurate portrayals of our court house, city hall, and Municipal Auditorium), and it's dated my birthday, though quite a few years before my time.
