Comics Sale - Rare Variants Collection
Forty-seven years ago today, I was 14 years old, and firmly convinced that I could earn a
living by selling old comic books. Everyone that I knew at the time thought that I was crazy,
except my mother, Margareta Rozanski. She helped me to purchase my first big comics deal
(3,500 comics!), and then talked the owners of the monthly Colorado Springs Antiques Fair
into renting me my first professional sales booth at their February 6th, 1970 event. My
mother passed 17 years ago, but only thanks to her kindness and unwavering support do
Mile High Comics
(and my family) exist today. Thanks, mom!
Nicole the Great, Queen Mother of the Americas
In other news, I am writing this newsletter on a plane back from San Diego, where I attended
this past weekend's coronation of the new monarchs of the
Imperial Court de San Diego
. While I enjoyed the coronation event a great deal, my primary reason for my
brief visit was to give a presentation to Nicole the Great (Queen Mother I of the Americas)
and the 40-member
Imperial Court Council
about the Harvey Milk graphic novel project that I am working on with renown Denver artist,
Thomas Haller Buchanan.
Our book project was incredibly well received by all, so our next step is to gain approval
to proceed from the
Harvey Milk Foundation.

As an aside, on the morning after most
coronations there is a Victory Brunch held, during which the new monarchs are introduced,
and typically a few awards are given out. At yesterday's brunch, our Queen Mother unexpectedly
presented me with her highest honor, by inducting me into her personal "Order of the Double
Eagle." Nicole's accolade obviously means little outside the
but when the head of an organization with 68 chapters in the USA, Canada, and Mexico
honors you, it feels amazing. I intend to continue to work very hard to validate our Queen Mother's faith in me.

My only other bit of news for today is a quick mention that our weekend 40% off GROUNDHOG!
codeword sale had an incredibly positive response, which instantly created a 7-day shipping
backlog. We will continue to accept 40% off orders under the GROUNDHOG! codeword through
tomorrow (Tuesday) night, but then it really has to end. If ordering today or tomorrow, please
allow us 7-10 days to process your order. The 40% GROUNDHOG! codeword applies to all ten
million of our
back issue comics and magazines
excepting only new issues, our CGC's, and a few variants.

P.S. Speaking of variants, our head buyer, Will Moulton, purchased a large private collection
last week which contained an awesome spectrum of extremely scarce limited editions. Many
are pictured for you in the arrays below, and almost all can be purchased using the
40% off GROUNDHOG! codeword. Please bear in mind, however, that we only received one copy of
each, and that we will allocate them on the basis of which orders are received first. Many of
these variants had to be "created" in our database, as we had never before owned a copy...
