Villains, superheroes & gods abound in Oct. 4 comic book auction

Comic books were never meant to be anything but ephemeral. Printed on cheap paper and priced to fit the budget of a 10-year-old, they nonetheless delivered entertaining stories about characters that still hold our interest today. These publications delivered so well that grownups who once lavished their allowances on the newest releases from DC, Marvel, and others now pay a premium for vintage originals that survived the decades unblemished.

On Monday, October 4, starting at 7 pm Eastern time, Jasper52 will conduct an 169-lot No Reserve Rare Comics sale.

Thor #126, March 1966, est. $5-$500
