About a month ago, I wrote a piece about the value of stamp collecting. It got one of my family member's nose out of whack. Ron, my CPA-son, has a rather extensive comic book collection, particularly on a series called "SubMariner." I believe he has every issue except one. So, what about comic books, he asked? What are they, chopped liver?

Hardly. When I was a kid (which goes back to when I rode up San Juan Hill with Teddy Roosevelt), I had an extraordinary comic book collection. It literally ran into thousands, from "Little Lulu" to "Joe Palooka." I also had a mother who ran a very tight ship. So, when I headed off to college those comic books were packed in cartons and relegated to the garage. You know what happened thereafter, don't you? Sure, while I was away, my mother went into a Spring cleaning mode and that's all there was to tell.
