I had hoped to make it there one day. But after this Sunday, the museum will be closed and the exhibit will be donated to the Library of Congress.

Damn. I so wanted to check that place out. I guess the glimpse we got on that episode of “Comic Book Men” will have to do.

A few years ago on my first trip to Baltimore Comic Con I continued my stay at my hotel through Sunday night so I could check out the museum the day after the show only to learn that they are closed on Mondays. Never did get to see it.

The writing has been on the wall for years. Surprised it took this long.

It's a shame, but thankfully the LOC will be housing it

Man, he owns Diamond, another (in essence) American monopoly. Place is lousy with them.

“Steve’s generosity will allow for these priceless memorabilia to be shared with all Americans at the Library of Congress.“

This is a good thing. Amazing books like this housed and preserved along with the most valuable of books in our history (as long as some congressman doesnt put his greasy old paws on any of these books 😁)

Comic book men didn't even scratch the surface. An amazing channel I'm subbed to called "Comic Trips" did an in-depth tour of Geppi Museum. It is fantastic!

It's an all-around awesome channel! You should check it out...also, here is the video I mentioned!
