Over the years, we have been privileged to handle and market many prestige collections of note, such as the Alan Class Private Collection, the Whitko Collection, the Square Mile Collection and, still ongoing, the Good Doctor Collection and the Totally Amazing Spider-Man Collection.
We are now delighted to announce the impending Bute Collection.
Named after a favourite place of the owner (Bute is an island in the Firth of Clyde in Scotland), this is the personal reference collection of a working comics artist and author who wishes to remain anonymous. Derived from a multiplicity of sources over decades, but characterised by an astonishing depth, breadth and diversity of American and British items from the 1930s onwards, including many seldom seen on these shores, in a variety of grades.
The overall collection comprises literally tens of thousands of comics, and our job is to sort through them and extract the vintage gems. They are not recorded or ordered, so the journey for us will be just as exciting as it is for you as we’re able to reveal these treasures. We’ve already seen enough to know it will be quite an experience! Special thanks to Will Morgan here for services above and beyond.
Due to the particular circumstances surrounding the owner of this collection, we can only carry out the sorting on an infrequent and incremental basis, and we expect the whole job to last several years. We will be branding comics from the Bute Collection with special labels and a logo on our What’s New page. And we’ll be starting next week with the first releases. If you’re a lover of vintage comics, you’ll enjoy the ride, and you’re certain to find many comics you’d love to add to your collection.
