Longbox Graveyard Podcast: Curse of the Marvel Value Stamp

It’s the story that never gets old (or less painful) no matter how many times I tell it!

Hulk #181

Join me for the “Curse of the Marvel Value Stamp,” a terrifying podcast recounting of how twelve-year-old me cut up his copy of Hulk #181 for a useless scrap of paper … and maybe became a better person for it!

  1. Great podcast! As a child even into my early 20’s I aspired to be a comic book artist and I used, more so in the early years, my issues as reference art. So I traced, roughly, over a lot of pages and even going as far as bending and carving out some pages. Some of those issue, only from the early 1990’s, might have had some value today. But I used them for the stories and the art! I loved them for their true value not cash value. Every great collector started off for the stories and never let it become about.


    • The real joy of collecting occurs when you cut loose from the idea of market value and instead embrace the intrinsic value of the things you have, specifically in terms of what they mean to you. People who think something is worth collecting only because of the dollar value of that object …? I don’t think I care to impress people like that.
