    Description

    Humongous Comics Group (Various Publishers). This gigantic lot contains approximately 300 long boxes, packed full to the gills. This material appears to be from a comic shop that closed sometime during the late 1990s. One section of this collection is what you would expect from back issue stock from a store, containing approximately 100 long boxes of bagged and boarded comics, arranged alphanumerically within each box, although the boxes themselves are in no particular order. There are runs of Amazing Spider-Man, Alpha Flight, New Mutants, etc., spanning the years 1980-1995. This part of the group lot also contains several thousand older comics, mainly from the 1970s in mid-grade, with a smattering of Silver Age thrown in, usually in lower grades. The remainder of the boxes contains overstock, sometimes with very heavy duplication such as a full long box of unbagged copies of X-Men #1 (the 1991 series) with all variant covers. It is very heavy on Marvel and DC titles from the late 1980s through the mid-1990s, with a fair amount of other popular publishers of the time such as Image, Dark Horse, and Valiant. In general, this material does not appear to be cherry-picked, so all of the core titles are present, such as Wolverine, Amazing Spider-Man, X-Men, etc. There are as many as 50 copies each of these titles from the 1990s. Thousands of high-grade copies, including many that appear 9.8. PLEASE NOTE: The high bidder must arrange pick-up in the Dallas area within 45 days of the closing date of the auction. With 75,000-90,000 comic books, the Overstreet value will easily be in six figures. The original art commissioned to depict this lot in our catalog is being offered in a separate lot - Lot #6605
