Hello Comic Enthusiasts,
www.ilovecomixarchive.com 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.
Images of the items being sought.
We have put together a bunch of incentives to help you help us obtain our goal. We've tried to create levels of giving that are practical, so that everyone can pitch in, whatever the amount may be!
Thank you so much in advance. We've always felt so very fortunate to have the support from the collecting community, we are hoping to expand our resources with the help of Kickstarter! If you can't afford to contribute, please consider passing this along to someone who might want to help support our project!! Any and all efforts to reach our goal are greatly appreciated!
