The I Love Comix Project

Our old friend Steve Cottle of the I LOVE COMIX site and archives has latched onto a major opportunity for comics (and even non-comics) historians and he needs our help!

Here's what Steve has to say:

Hello Comic Enthusiasts, is trying to purchase an 8,000 lbs collection of vintage newspapers located in West Virginia. There are over 220 consecutive volumes of full newsprint, plus stacks and stacks of comic dailies (mostly full and partial pages) and boxes of Sunday comics pages. The ratio is 90% dailies to Sundays. The newspapers collected are pulled from the following; The Cleveland Daily Press, the Cleveland Plain Dealer, The Atlanta Georgian, and The Seattle times and many others. The dates collected range from the early 1930's to the late 1970's.

The ilovecomix archive's goal is to scan the material and save it for it's historical value.

All funds received from this project will help pay for the material, transportation fees, and cost to ship all items to our location in Alabama.

Follow the link below for full details on how you can contribute to this worthy archival project and even get some incentives!
