  2. COMIC SHOP The Retail Mavericks Who Gave Us A New Geek Culture Signed
    $17.95

    Dan interviewed me twice, once in person, and we continued to work together to get facts right and questions resolved. I was a partner in one of the earliest comic book stores (1968). In 1972, I co-founded what may be the first chain of comic stores (Comics and Comix), and I was one of the earliest mail order retailers, beginning the business that you see now back in 1970. On the distribution side, I began wholesaling comics-related material to stores before Phil Seuling created the Direct Market. Phil and I often would take entire print runs from publishers (Squa Tront, Elfquest, Comics Journal) to make them viable, and we'd distribute them to comic shops, before any other distributors existed.

  3. ROY THOMAS BARBARIAN LIFE A Literary Biography of Conan The Barbarian Volume 1
    $19.95

    In thousands of four-color panels for Marvel Comics, Roy Thomas told the tale of Robert E. Howard’s greatest creation, Conan the Barbarian. Now, in this definitive biography and analysis, Roy chronicles Conan’s comic-book life, issue by issue, plot by plot, and artist by artist. For ten years, from October 1970 when Roy and artist Barry Smith assembled the first issue of Marvel's Conan the Barbarian, to October 1980 when Roy and artist John Buscema completed their last issue together on the series, Thomas wrote of Conan's gigantic melancholies and gigantic mirth—as well as the wars, the wenches, and the wizardry that bedeviled the Cimmerian from one issue to the next.
