Details

Thirty-five rare comic books, valued at a quarter of a million dollars of rare comic books (including the first appearance of Superman, Batman, Marvel Mystery Comics No 1.), have been stolen. Insurance claim adjuster Hobart Lindsey at first can only laugh, but that is before he finds that he must follow a dangerous path from the backstabbing and dangerous world of big-time comic book collectors to the kinky streets of Berkeley to the holographic wonders of a computer millionaire.

"He was a white, suburban bachelor. A total square. Lived with his mother. Worked for an insurance company. She was a black, tough, streetwise cop. Then somebody stole a quarter million dollars worth of rare comic books. And then people started getting murdered. Lindsey and Plum were like oil and water, but they had to work together, like it or not! Joe Gores, author of Hammett and other novels, said: "Lupoff writes with intelligence, humor, wisdom, and a zest for life. He had a lot of fun writing this book, and it shows; because of it, we have a lot of fun reading it." The Comic Book Killer is the first volume in Richard A. Lupoff's hugely popular Lindsey-and-Plum series".

Included in the slipcase is a copy of the comic Gangsters At War, June no. 27. Comic illustrations by Alex Schomburg, Trina Robbins and Steve Leialoha.

Note: This is an out of print, used and/or rare item. Very Fine/As New. Jacket has some edge wear, slight curling at the top, and a tiny tear at the top of the spine. Book, comic and slipcase are excellent.
