So far there has been no response to my offer to give my comic book library to any worthy recipient. Worthy in this instance meaning an establishment that will make them available to the public and/or students. The list of books on comic history appears a few blogs over. As further enticement below is a list of the ‘Collected Editions’ that come with this amazing offer. These are publications containing complete editions of work previously published as serialised part works in comics or newspapers, or, as with Weird Science, the complete run of comic. Many of them from non-English speaking countries are in the language of the country of publication. The images here are from Kinema Komic1928, one of the books in the collection. In the olden days publishers would annually have made a bound copy of the of the years output. This would be kept in-house for record and reference. Not wishing to appear more authorative than I actually am I should say that I am assuming all publishers did this based on the fact that I know that ‘Kinema Komics’ did and that in the ‘seventies so did ‘Countdown’. This ‘Kinema Komic’ kollection kover is broken, some pages have been torn out and a few have been vandalised with parts of the pages scissored out - presumably by editorial staff wishing to re-use an image and lacking the convenience of a digital scanner. At 92 years old, despite its poor condition, it would be fair to describe it as an historic and possibly unique object.
