Go, Read: The Beat On The Maggie Thompson Collection
Good catch by Steve Morris -- who write for Heidi MacDonald's The Beat -- on something that completely escaped my attention. Apparently the longtime trade magazine editor, writer about comics and early comics-culture superfan Maggie Thompson has released her massive comics collection to be auctioned off in waves. These are not only worthy books from decades of collecting; they are well-maintained. Morris' piece indicates this sale is not driven by desperate financial need, which puts Thompson in the enviable position of simply moving the fruits of her collection into the hands that will value those books.
