Maybe The US Marshals Can Run The Entire Comics Industry

I know that the main hook for articles about the final disposition of the comics collection owned by convicted meth dealer Aaron Castro is jokes about the nerdy criminal and his funnybooks, with a slight nod in the direction of underground economies and past rumors of same involving comics.

Still, I can't help but be impressed that the US Marshals service was able to get $125K for the 18,000+ comics seized. Have you tried to sell comics in a "take them all" fashion these days? They got a ton of bids, too. I'm not saying it's worth starting a prostitution ring to find someone willing to take on my complete run of Dagar The Invincible, but if I have to move again I'll definitely think about it.
