Which brang up a nother thought. You ever remember the old Crypt Keeper Comics (I inherited all of my cousins EC comics when he went to West Point and I was still a kid). I read and reread this story about "Heap", a garbage pile that, with just the right mix of ingredients randomly disposed on his own pile, came to life and terrorized a small town in Ohio.
ANybody remember that one?
My mom threw ll these comics out when the "Comics Code" was enacted and these old EC comics were considered "Occasions of SIn"
Today they would be "Occasions of Disposable CAsh"
I 've heard that story more than a few times from too many guys in agony.
have 1OOs of comics from the 1930s thru to around maybe 1958.
I thawt that their quality decreased in the writing, around then; disappointing.
It was NOT
that my tastes matured; DON'T
accuse me of that.
Thay remained status quo
but the comics began disappointing me; disaffected me.
I did not seal them under plastic, which is just as well
considering that I don 't wanna sell them.
Tho I paid a nickel for a lot of them, some of them appreciated up
into the hundreds of $$ @
