I`ve been collecting comics for over 40 years and am able to answer most questions regarding comics, creators, fandom and the industry from the Golden Age through to today`s comics, with an emphasis on super and action heroes and most of my expertise ranges in the Silver to Modern Ages. My expertise lies in DC Comics/National Periodical Publications, although my general knowledge extends well into Marvel, Tower, Archie, Charlton & many of the "Independent" companies that began in the late 70`s & 80`s. I do have some knowledge of the Western, Funny Animals, Romance and other genres, but to a lesser degree, so please don't grade me on specific knowledge of these areas if you choose to ask me questions on those topics. For questions related to or similar to "How much are my comics worth?", please see my website, which will provide quick answers and tools for you to obtain those answers at:

Collector since I was 8, never thrown any comic away in all that time (45 years!). Expertise in Marvel and DC superhero comics but also knowledgeable about a variety of independents as well. Know a lot about 1960s and 1970s stuff. NOT an expert on prices or relative commercial values -please don't ask what a comic is worth.

I can answer questions about the *contents* of most superhero and sci-fi comics (and also fantasy/sword'n'sorcery like Elfquest and Conan the Barbarian) and also about the writers and artists, but not about the *condition* of your comics (i.e. I will not grade your comics or evaluate their value). I am very knowledgable about American comics in general, esp. Marvel, but also DC and indies. I cannot answer questions about Japanese manga comics, which I know very little about. The majority of my expertise spans from comics published between 1960 and 2000, but if you have questions about before or after those dates, I probably know enough to find the info you need.

Hi, Grant -     Thank you for your question!    There is some difficulty in pinning down when the "serious" nature of Batman might have begun. Or, for that matter, what you yourself might consider "serious"

2016-09-18 I want to know where to start reading some comics:

As a Superman expert, I really can't answer the Batman side of your question. But for Superman comic books, if you really want to get into older comics, I'd suggest you start with the revamp in 1986.

2016-09-18 help finding a starting point in some comics:

Bit of a broad question to answer.    Comics started getting 'darker' in the 1980s. A turning point was Watchmen by Alan Moore. Try picking up the series you're interested in from the late 1980s and see

2016-08-13 help with finding a starting point in some comics:

Hey Guy,    Okay, I guess you want to jump forward to the really modern stuff - you need to start with Batman #404 from February 1987, then. It's the start of Batman: Year One, a four-part story by Frank

2016-08-06 help with finding a starting point in some comics:

Hi Guy!    That's a great question. The silly comics from the 1940's and 50's are indeed hard to work up proper enthusiasm for; I myself also prefer the modern comics that come later. I think the quality
