The Saskatoon Star Phoenix wrote an article about a good news story that we all wish could come true. Al Neumiller visited Lee Pearson of Bridge City Comics and Collectibles to sell his old comic books. Rather than throw away the old comics, Al asked Lee to check the value and to the surprise of both, the results were amazing. The highlights included Fantastic Four #5, Tales To Astonish #27 and Journey Into Mystery #73. Al explained his collection as: “Basically it was just a matter of being a kid and being interested in the different books — there are all kinds, even some western stuff and war stories in there — but a lot of them I don’t even remember,” he said. “I should have known (that they were worth something) but I totally forgot about them.”
