I don’t know about you, but I used to stare at reprints of these pages for hours on end. I love the shot of Peter Parker jumping onto the wall to avoid Flash Thompson’s car.

John’s wife, Judith Yates Borger, wrote a beautiful Blog about this, and it’s worth a read:

U of M Gets Major Collection — of Comic Books

It’s wonderful to know that this history will be preserved. Even nicer that it will be available to anyone who is interested and able to travel to Minnesota.
