I'm so glad you have decided to do this! Your show (and Chris's Collected Comics Library) were among the first podcasts I ever subscribed to and learned quite a lot from both of you. I have no doubt you have more to teach in the future!

Bill, you made my evening! I am one of those people who has eagerly awaited the return of your podcast episodes, not knowing if it would ever happen. I first discovered your podcast in 2009 or 2010, subscribed on iTunes, and downloaded the previous episodes in your archive. I'm guessing I listened to 20-25 of them and had the rest stored on an external hard drive for listening later. However, in 2011 or so, I bought a new computer and while I was setting it up, the external hard drive I had archived your episodes on failed. By this time, your episodes were off the feed and I was out of luck...or so I thought. :) I am very grateful to you for making your episodes available again! I've loved golden age comics since I was a kid, and purchased DC's Famous First Edition oversized edition of Whiz Comics #2. I read that edition backwards and forwards. I'm a DC Comics devotee, so in recent years, I have gone back to experience more of DC's golden age material in the Archive editions, and most recently in digital form on Comixology. Comixology has been adding lots of DC's golden age comics lately, mostly featuring Superman and Batman, but hopefully more are coming. And DC's recent omnibuses and trades are a real treat. I've been purchasing the digital trades, and it looks like we have a lot more to look forward to from DC in 2017. Your podcast was there when I first really started to discover DC's golden age material, and now I can resume listening as you re-issue the episodes! I really appreciate your take on these wonderful stories, and share your appreciation for the Golden Age Batman. I love the atmosphere in these stories, and it's fun to see how one of the most popular comic book characters of all time began. Anyway, thanks again, Bill! I know it costs money to host these files, and I want you to know I appreciate it. I hope others get as much enjoyment out of them as I have! Daron

Comment on Disney’s Fourth of July and Vacation Covers by Al Canales

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 22:59:40 +0000

Hi Bill, As a kid (previous century), I bought mostly Disney comics and had quite a collection. I left home for college and my younger cousins ransacked my room with all my Disney treasures! I have just a few of the comics that I kept with me but I have been going crazy trying to find one particular comic. The one I'm thinking of had a page (probably the back cover) with a cutout of Grandma Duck's electric car. It could be put together and powered by a wooden spool with a rubber band and matchstick. If I could find out which comic that was in, I'd look to see if it can be purchased. Any help you can offer will be appreciated. Warmest regards, Al Canales Temecula, CA

Comment on The Trouble with “Famous First Editions” by Bob

There are other difference besides the size. The original Action #1 cover was cut a little lower, and the car's fender had a white reflection on it; it was colored solid green in the FFE reprint. On the original Detective #27, Batman's rope went all the way to the top of the cover, the roof has two pipes on it instead of one, and Bob Kane's signature is on the bottom; not in the reprint.

Comment on The Trouble with “Famous First Editions” by Tony Ortega

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 01:40:03 +0000

I am absolutely sure the Famous First Edition of Batman #1 was never published in a hardcover version by Lyle Stuart. Overstreet's Price Guides have been perpetuating that myth for years. I believe the next edition will finally correct that mistake. I'll be happy to supply you with the evidence supporting my findings. Please correct your listing, so others using your it for reference won't make the mistake of wasting their time searching for a non-existent book. Have a wonderful day! Tony Ortega.

I realize a lot of these comments are several years old now, but if folks would stop thinking comics are their highway to riches and just enjoy them, they'd be a lot calmer about the whole issue (pun intended). A comic book is worth as much as collectors are willing to spend. The Overstreet Price Guide is not a sales catalogue but a GUIDE. Resale value is based on age, condition, and demand. True Romance comics for example are not in as high demand as superhero comics are, yet both printed in the 1940s. To an earlier post, the first Batman appearance was Detective Comics 27. These comics are rare because many were pulped to support the war effort, thus their rarity. Today's comics are barely worth the paper their printed on, typical copies at $4 a copy and resale value maybe 50 cents if you're lucky.

Comment on The Great Comic Book Heroes by Paul Zuckerman

Tue, 29 Dec 2015 04:36:58 +0000

Just discovered this discussion--someone on FB linked to it. Nice summary of the book. I got the book in 1965, when it first came out. I was thirteen. It blew me away. Carried it to school almost every day to share with my classmates. I had never seen Golden Age stories, except for a one page reprint in a Superman annual. Reading the early and raw versions of the characters was a real eye opener. Heroes killing? Not the ones that I was familiar with! And some of the art was really sensual, in a way that current comics in 1965 were not. The icing on the cake, of course, was the Feiffer essay, which had apparently appeared previously in a shortened version in Playboy. I knew of Feiffer from the Village Voice and collections of his early material that my aunt had. That stuff didn't appeal much to me in 1965, but I knew he was an Important Artist! So, what he said carried weight. I was a little put-off when he called comics junk, but he had an unabashed love for the medium. What I didn't know then, when he waxed eloquently about Eisner was that he himself had worked for Eisner for several years. Later on, I found out that he had a hand in writing some of my favorite Spirit stories. I still have my copy, somewhat beaten up (I had put a plastic book cover on it in1966 to protect it, and it's still covering the book). It probably would be the last book in my comics book collection that I would part with.
