In reading this many will think about their early comic book collection, now ancient and probably tossed, and wonder what became of it. Was there an early Superman comic in the bunch? It’s now difficult to know but we can remember and think there was. In doing this, if random boxes long since packed away and forgotten, stored in attics, crawl spaces and basements, are remembered they will, when the time is ripe, be opened. Our own histories will spring to life and we, the hero of our own sagas, remember and appreciate the supermen we have tried to be, to parents, lovers, wives and children. Is there a superman in one of these boxes? No doubt there is but probably not the one ringing up the big bucks. Rather it’s ourselves detailed in the debris. Our stories will for the most part not be told but we know that we have tried.
So we may never have a perfect first edition of Superman but have other things, perspective beyond comics and an understanding of why we collect. We collect to fill spaces and are fortunate if we know what it is we want. For most its not a perfect copy of Superman but if it is I hope you won it.
