comic book collection inherited by family expected to net $2M at auction
When Michael Rorrer found 345 comic books neatly stacked in a basement closet as he cleaned out his great aunt’s Virginia home after her death, he thought they were cool but didn’t think much about their value.

He later discovered that his late great uncle Billy Wright had managed to assemble a remarkable comic book collection that included some of the most prized issues ever published, and kept them in good condition. The comics are expected to fetch more than $2 million when they are auctioned off Wednesday in New York City.


Happy Birthday Unshelved!

Ten Years Old
Ten years ago we put the first Unshelved strip on the web.

Our expectations were low, to say the least. The only reason we even bothered posting strips was to keep ourselves honest in the eyes of a few dozen friends and family. The plan was to churn out strips for a few months, then start over again using the lessons we'd learned, and finally apply to syndicates. (Remember newspapers?)
