*Magazines/Books About Vintage US Comics: From 1991, commencing as an unpretentious adzine for aficionados of Golden and Silver Age Comics to sell and trade, Comic Book Marketplace mushroomed in popularity during the first wave of investment and speculation, and quickly evolved into a slick magazine with articles and features on classic titles, creators and publishing companies, with the appreciation outstripping the commercial aspect. Over the course of more than 100 issues, overcoming two publishing hiatuses, CBM enlightened, educated and entertained before it breathed its last with 2005’s issue #121, its declining readership having largely switched allegiance to the Internet. We have a virtually complete run of this classic body of scholarship, criticism and nostalgia, from its premier issue to its final number, missing only a handful of the earlier intervening issues. Pictured are #1 VF £20 and #17 FN £5 (by which time it had settled into what would become, with minor variations, its ‘slick’ format).
