He's an artist - probably living off the grid due to artistic temperment or financial (the only ones who make $$ in the art world are the supply stores!!)

Bet stuff like this happens all the time. I remember seeing an episode of cribs where the guy had what would be now almost 500k in comics as wall paper in his bathroom. Lol

Remember that copy of Action Comics #1, found in a house a couple years ago? It was used - decades ago - as insulation. It was actually quite well preserved, considering. It was graded at 1.5, but it might've received a 3.0 or so before the back cover was ripped "in an exchange between Gonzalez [the homeowner] and his wife's aunt."

Too bad for the books...but I would guesstimate that the status is well worth that notalagia.

Break even is about what it will be.

This will definitely be a purple label for restored. Graders note includes: page married with a small amount of glue
