A MODEST COMIC COLLECTION PART 8

My comics collection and comics related material is very diverse.The comics themselves also spawned an industry of books, magazines, fanzines and then the comics themselves began to be reprinted in hard-bound books as collectors’ items in their own right.I think it might have been the EC line which mined this territory first. The entire line of 1950s EC comics was reprinted directly from the original artwork in beautifully made boxed sets aimed at collectors.They were expensive of course because quality was the standard. This set the tone for future publications.
