I can still get stuff from both of them upon demand -- often in a day.

A. At book they are probably valued at $3-5 Million Dollars.

More about me (all this was on my about me page at ebay and elsewhere long ago):
(I had a small ad (3 actually) in Overstreet in 1985
(as Ninth Nebula, The Comic Book Store);
I attended San Diego Comic Con
from the earliest days -- earliest 1970's and SF/Fantasy Conventions
dozens of times around the Country).
Sold there (in S.D.) twice with a table 1985, 1996. Dealt with Rogofsky where
I bought Superboy #1 for $10) back in time from him;
Managed a chain; owned two stores (Ninth Nebula** 1986-1996 and
Beyond Illusion New Age Books and Comics during all of 1978 (comics paid the rent),
threw comic conventions (19 of them),
one store** was next door to LASFS (Los Angeles Science Fantasy Society),
published 6 Fanzines (see my blog on main home page)+ many covers for Apa-L.
My interviews have been published. One with Gerry Conway and one with Roy Thomas.
Wrote an article which appeared on the front page of the Burbank Daily Leader
Made hundreds of videos of my comics for sale I have so many in super high grade.
They are on youtube mostly as urmzogna, but also as funster13 and zero0aeo.+
I am on facebook (see http://graphic-illusion.com/twentylinks) to see them all and JOIN.
In my youth one of my first jobs was at Collector's Bookstore.
I haunted the Newsstand on Cahuenga Blvd. in Hwd., Argosy,
Cherokee and Bond St. (Friends with Steve E. and his partner) and Collector's Bookstore
(Friends with Leonard Brown--he treated me well selling
me copies of Conan #3 by BWS in mint for $8 each at the time).
Mostly I just want to sell my comics and art since it is how I pay my bills.
Suggestions and offers appreciated.
Note I write and draw see my art and comics at Pinterest.
Grew up in the San Fernando Valley. Now I live in Southern Oregon.
