Hi welcome to Graphic Illusion comics and art. Thanks for buying from me.
The first super hero comic book I ever read and picked out from a corner store was a (Superman) Action Comics with Brainiac on the cover. As a kid around 1961. I then proceeded to buy every SUPERMAN related title for years and then everything.
Soon after I was also hooked on MARVEL and by age 15 explored Golden Age and EC comics and comic art. And fanzine publishing.

Domestic Shipping: I often combine & discount shipping for more than one order & only charge shipping one time.
Normal sized comics ship for $4.00 and more via ebay’s/pitney bowes system on average for 1st comic via First class MAIL for the first 1-3 items. Around $8.00-$10.50 up in a Priority box) (Buy 2-3 comics at same time no additional fee) shipped in same order.
I ship internationally. All fees must be covered by buyer.
Most items ship within 1-3 weekdays (not counting weekends, holidays/vacations or conventions (which I rarely attend)). This keeps my comics in higher grade. Usually I ship within 1 weekday. Unlisted items may take a week to process. I stay in communication at all times.
I insure expensive items. You are responsible for actual shipping and insurance costs. Though if I say FREE then I’ll cover all fees for no additional fee. Please do not alter the total without my permission. Do go to Paypal directly if you suspect anything from anyone. I can send an invoice to you from them too. Request it as needed via email please. firstname.lastname@example.org.
If I accept your offer then reasonable to exact postage is due. *Offer when accepted usually means we renegotiate shipping. It costs about $19 for art to ship via Priority between 3 boxes;
I ship of course using ebay/pitney bowes/ usps lowest possible first class price/rate. Often it will still be free. Tracking free on everything. Off ebay I use the USPS. But other options are open.
Regarding International shipments: I only use Ebay’s Global Shipping platform. . Contact me if you have a question. Although I usually cover the extra shipping costs and insurance that may be due you are responsible for shipping to your Country. I appreciate you buying from me. I’ll work with you on everything until we arrive at something.
Talk to me, all options are open. After you pay for shipping for 1st page of art (if it so says) additional art shipped in same order ships for free. Buy a bunch of art it will usually all ship free, domestically.
Refund Policy: Sold as is, all sales are final. In rare instances a mistake may occur. If this happens email me or call please prior to returning anything. I cover return shipping if it is my fault. I do not offer a look at this free return service. Thanks for understanding.
If I send the wrong item I’ll cover shipping both ways!!! Everything is sold as a is final.
Nothing is sold by grade or guide and I make no assertions as to what a grading service or guide may think, say or do. Not sold by grade or guide by me so that cannot be a reason for return. I’ll give you an idea of the shape. Sometimes I can show you the item in person. Happy to describe item in detail. Skype and video are options for pre-viewing. I have graded comics professionally for 52+ years. I was there at the beginning.
I grade in your favor; I just don’t sell many graded comics (I have a few); I sell comics you could get graded. When I owned my stores I’d order 10-100 or more copies of some great comics that have never been read or opened. Ask me about them. X-men!!! Spider-man. Batman. Superman. Pristine sold as NM. For example. I am PMC comics so all you buy from me will be accurately graded for free.
Buy what you love if it goes up that is an added bonus.
As far as shipments to other Countries I’ll insure it and mail it and prove it was mailed. Will ship as you ask and pay for must be insured.
Been on ebay over 22 years. I have been selling comics and art for over 50 years. And I’ve graded comics & done mail order also for about 50 years. I want your satisfaction and repeat business.
All comics and art are from a fresh air environment. Thanks for reading my ads and this blog and buying. My kids, my grandkids & great grandkids and I deeply appreciated it.

Info and Article/BLOG:
Hope you find something you are looking for.
Comics make great reference material & teach business, art and writing skills. Plus they entertain the eye and mind.
I’ve been selling, promoting & accurately grading comics for 52 years.
I spent my first 47 years on Earth in the San Fernando Valley. Specifically Van Nuys, CA for most of it.
I owned my first comic & bookstore in 1978 in Venice/Ocean Park, CA (Called “Beyond Illusion” for a solid year). And I managed a chain off and on for most of ten years in the 70’s and 80’s.
I once owned the super ultra cosmic magical comic book shop:
Ninth Nebula from Oct. 1986 to Oct. 1996. The actual name was: “The Comic Book Store Museum.” Though I just called it the Comic Book Store for a long while.
In my lifetime I probably held over 50 autograph parties with comic & SF professionals (mostly between 1976 and 1996) (artists and writers, including several times with Jack Kirby (Most Early Marvel’s), Stan Lee (Author, Publisher Marvel Comics + Film cameo artist), Dave (Rocketeer) Stevens, Paul (X-men) Smith, George Clayton Johnson (Twilight Zone), Harlan Ellison (Author), Steve Gerber (HTD), Marty (Dr. Fate) Pascoe, Sergio Aragones (Groo), Larry Niven*, Roy Thomas (Conan..), Gerry Conway (Conan +; Fire & Ice with Bakshi), ask to see the videos of some of the events* some are posted already on youtube and with many many other awe inspiring pros.

I had two interviews published in Comics Journal (one with Roy Thomas and one with Gerry Conway).
Over 28 years ago: I managed a chain of comic stores. I also owned two stores (at different times, 1978) and as mentioned (1986-1996) and threw a small comic book convention 1985/6 at an SF clubhouse (LASFS) next door to where I opened my small but mighty comic store.
Some of my collection (at the time) of old comics appeared on the front page of the Burbank Daily Leader Newspaper along with an article I wrote on comics in 1985. My advertisements appeared in RBCC and Comic Buyer’s Guide early on. Five of my 10+ articles are on “ezine.”
I am a private party off loading most of my old store stock & personal collection. And I collect still.
I sell comics, original comic art — I want to share my abundance of Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, SPIDER-MAN, Fantastic Four, Daredevil, Hulk, and X-MEN, Avengers, Frank Miller, Frazetta, Kirby, Ditko and thousands of titles and including about 25,000 to 50,000 HIGH GRADE comics with you now.
I have some of these in quantity and high grade at low prices… And I sell comics from many companies including DC, Pacific, EC, First, Tower, Harvey, Marvel, Fiction House, Charlton, Eclipse, Image, Valiant, Dark Horse, independent comics, bronze age, silver age comics, (all ages), golden age, big little book’s, pulps, original comic art, old fanzines...and more.
I published 5+ fanzines from 1965-1971 Beyond Infinity #1, Eon #2 — says on the back the Magazine of Graphic Illusions and sports a Tim Kirk wraparound DRAGON cover), Eon #3 (with a Ditko back cover) & Graphic Illusions with A Steve Fabian front cover, Al Williamson, Wally Wood, Ditko, Jeff Jones, George Barr, Tim Kirk, Wendy Pini art. And others. In 2001 I put out Graphic Illusions 30 year anniversary special. My words and art have appeared in 100’s of SF & comic fanzines too (such as Apa-L)…sort of (never counted).
Photo is sample of a few items. I probably have all of the BLB’s for sale plus more still. Can list them on ebay or anyhwhere you want if you ask.
I have tons of comics 50,000 back issue comics still. They were reduced from 250,000 comics to the best grade, variety & quality. I have some antiques, real and costume jewelry, books and magazines.
I have tons of comics from the 60’s — 70’s! Bagged & boarded. Many from the 1950’s too. I buy. I collect. I sell.
I was a member of Capa-Alpha (the elite comic apa zine club) as a kid & the comic club SMASH of Los Angeles. And contributed to Apa-L.
I also accept payment via PayPal and am verified. Sorry no cash through mail only in person!!! If ebay allows checks and money orders then I accept them. (I don’t think they do at the moment).
All my comics & Vintage Collectible Items are left over from personally collecting and reading and caring for them; and from owning two comic shops and throwing 19 mini comic cons prior to 1996.
