Die Kunst des Comic-Sammelns gives insight into an amazing parallel universe! The book shows people full of passion – full of passion for comics!
Whether perfectly preserved first editions, limited special editions and original drawings or even dedications, figures and paintings: what the comic collectors show here are treasures of an often underestimated pop culture. From superheroes to mangas, from fixed and foxi to mosaics, from Franco-Belgian classics to experimental graphic novels: the worlds of comic collectors are full of surprises! Unfortunately they are rarely or never shown!
15 comic collectors open their treasure troves for us, show us their favourite pieces and tell us their stories. Often they are about queuing for hours at a book signing or about the success of finally getting hold of the missing issue after years of searching. But they always tell of passionate enthusiasm for the so-called Ninth Art.
