Here's an interesting listing on Craigslist forwarded to me by my pal at Big Brain Comics, easily one the finest comic stores in this great country of ours. It's a listing to sell a not-very-large comic book collection. But it's the last sentence that really makes it sing:
352 comics assembled by professional comic collector. Books range from
mid 70's to early 80's & are in absolute pristine condition. Many 1st
editions & collector editions. AC, Atlas, Cadillac, Comico, Continuity,
DC, Deluxe, Eagle, Eclipse, Epic, First, JC, Maevel, Pacific, PC,
Red Circle, & Spectrum. Face value of books is approx. $400, will sell
for $250, or will consider trade (+/-) for modern pistol or rifle.
