Our auctions this week focus on a several fan-favorite superheroes — Superman, Thor, and, of course, Green Lantern. If high-grade auctions catch your eye, then look no further than our beautiful copy of a classic ’60s Superman, or a gorgeous example of Tales of Asgard (plus, it’s the first issue!). That’s not to downplay the sheer awesomeness of our Showcase #22, which features the debut of the Silver Age Green Lantern. Your collection won’t be complete without these!
Going to be in the Buffalo area today? Maybe at that Buffalo Comicon thing that’s going on? We’ll have a booth set up, so stop by and say “hi”! We’d love to see you there.
