$317,200 Comic Book!


I read in The New York Daily News about a rare comic book that sold for $317,200.

Reminds me of a conversation with a friend who was throwing away her son’s comics.

I told her that a comic I treasured, “Lois Lane: Super Brain,” was valued at nearly $50,000... but that my mother threw it away... effectively throwing tens of thousands of dollars away.

She shrugged and threw out her son’s comics, anyway.

Maybe that is why they are so valuable... mothers have the uncontrollable need to throw them away.

Maybe we need a government-sponsored study of this strange behavior.

Hmm... how can I get an earmark?
