This is the lotto-ticket kind of bullshit that makes me hold on to that 5th printing of the Sin City graphic novel in hopes it will be worth a squintillion dollars some day. I'm an idiot.
The story of this collection is soon to be a movie, enabling everyone who ever passed up a box of comic books at a garage sale to face-palm simultaneously.
In 1977, comic book dealer Chuck Rozanski unearthed the most important comic book collection that the world will ever know. 18,000 comics from the late 1930s to the early 1950s — the earliest days of American comic books — in unimaginably high grade condition. All the important issues from comics’ formative years are there –Action Comics #1, Detective Comics #27, Marvel Comics #1, Superman #1, and on and on — as well as most of the impossibly obscure ones. And many of them look like they were just purchased from a newsstand yesterday.
