"Every once in awhile I receive a call about a collection for sale and I know I need to rush right out the door to buy it. When I was contacted by the daughter of a former employee of Dell Publishing who lived in Poughkeepsie, New York, I knew it was one of those calls!" states Metropolis CEO, Stephen Fishler.
The father of this family worked at Dell from 1946-1980 and passed away approximately 23 years ago. "The books were kept by his wife and daughter and remain in a very well preserved state with nice pages and glossy covers," Fishler continues. The collection of Poughkeepsie Dell File copies consists of over 1600 comics from the 1940s to the early 50s. Titles include Donald Duck, Little Lulu, Lone Ranger, Gene Autry, Mickey Mouse, Dale Evans, Andy Panda, Uncle Scrooge, Rootie Kazootie, Zorro, Looney Tunes, Tom & Jerry, The Brownies, Annie Oakley and many others. Highlights include early Lulus, early Four Color, March of Comics #41, Race to the South Seas, and a gorgeous copy of Four Color #62 (Donald Duck in Frozen Gold).
