I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who has placed a donation in the Major Spoilers Tip Jar.Â As much as everyone at Major Spoilers loves sharing our knowledge and joy of comics and pop culture with like minded folk around the world, it doesn’t come without expenses (quite a large number of expenses).
While Luthor Dollars are great (see the Major Spoilers Dictionary), having real money to put to our growing expenses is nice.
I don’t want this post to come off as a “we’re bums and we’re begging for donations” entry, as tips are always appreciated, but never required, but I did want to take a moment and say thank you to everyone who dropped off a donation in the last couple of weeks.
Thanks Guys and Gals! YOU ROCK!
If you have ever dreamt of discovering the mother load of comic collections stashed in your grand parents closet, take a moment to read the first person account of the discovery of the Mile High Collection.
I quizzed the Realtor for a while about the contents of the closet. He indicated that there were a bunch of old cowboy and horror comics from the 1950′s, which sure sounded good to me. I then asked him if there were any super-hero comics, and he said he thought there might be some old Batman and Superman comics, but he wasn’t sure. In any case, what he had described was more than enough for me to get very excited. I asked him when we could get together at the house to look at the comics, and he indicated that he thought he could make arrangements with the sellers to be there on the following Saturday. I agreed to be there at the appointed time, and hung up the phone.
Seriously, the entire article is a fascinating read and worth every moment of your time.
