WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
"Metropolis' grading is what makes them head and shoulders above the [business name omitted]s and [business name omitted]s of the industry. I have bought many books and I mean many that other dealers would grade (and price) a full point higher than how Metropolis would strictly grade. I always look to Metropolis first when buying any key book."

METROPOLIS ON THE MOVE: BIG APPLE COMIC CON, C2E2!

Metropolis is delighted to announce the return of the beloved Big Apple ComicCon, just a stone's throw from our offices at the venerable Penn Plaza Pavilion, 33rd @ 7th Ave, this coming weekend, March 11th and 12th! Metro will be in its traditional spot, showing off thousands of the vintage comics and original comic art treasures we're reknowned for, plus highlights from our upcoming auctions, and more!

 

"It's no secret that this show is a hometown favorite," enthused Sales Director Frank Cwiklik, "and we're always happy to be at the Big Apple show right here in the heart of Manhattan. It's a great show with a loyal fanbase, and we always do great business there with clients old and new. Also, it's, like, a five minute walk from the office, so if I forget any office supplies I can call and make one of the new guys bring it over. Are you gonna print that?"

 

We're also very proud to that to commemorate the appearance of Frank Miller at this show, Metropolis Gallery will be hosting a special exhibit of the maestro's extraordinary work on the show floor. "We're thrilled to announce that Metropolis will have an exclusive Frank Miller original art display at our booth," explained Vincent Zurzolo. "Original art collectors and comic book fans need to stop by to view this incredible selection in person."

 

We're still taking requests for the show, but with our hectic schedule (don't ask), we only have a little time left to prepare, so if you're going, get your requests in now! We'll be happy to bring one book or a hundred, if there's stuff on our site you wanna buy, we'll have it at the booth for you! Just call us at 212 260 4147 x110, or reply to this email, and we'll bring your requests along for you to pick up at the show and take home in your very own Metropolis bag! Be the envy of friends and strangers! Plus, we're always buying, whether it's comics or comic art, so bring your collection to us for an immediate cash offer! WE'LL SEE YOU AT THE BIG APPLE CON!

While he was a superhero comicbook fan since he was a boy, Jon didn't get serious about collecting until his law school days. Back then, he could pick up back issues for a quarter a piece. Now a civil trial attorney, Jon has acquired over 20,000 comics including some of the rarest books our graders have ever seen and, hands down, the most impressive and valuable collections of original comic art ever offered at auction.

"The original Cover art to Planet Comics #1 by Lou Fine, Pep Comics #30 by Bob Montana and All New Comics #8 by Alex Schomburg will blow your mind away," stated ComicConnect COO Vincent Zurzolo.  In addition to the wondrous collection of original art, visitors to the auction preview gallery will also find copies of Action Comics #1, Detective Comics #27, Captain America Comics #1, Fantastic Comics #3 (Church Copy), Motion Picture Funnies Weekly #1, Fawcett Flash Comics #1, and dozens more.

"I have known Jon for over thirty years as a fellow historian, fan, client, and friend. I am truly humbled to have him entrust the solemn task of bringing his collection to market. It is an understatement to say it is one of the greatest, deepest and richest collections, not only in value but in historical significance I've ever had the privilege to be involved with" exclaimed ComicConnect CEO, Stephen Fishler.



With one of the most famous collections in fandom, Jon was interviewed in 2005 by Forbes magazine where he was described as a collector "with the seriousness of a historian and the zeal of a kid," a description he heartily embraces. When asked to give advice to collectors, he stated, "Don't have feet of clay. A lot of this stuff comes around just once. You've got to be ready to go for it." And boy, howdy, did Jon Berk ever go for it.

"Whether you are a collector, investor or just a fan, I invite you all to enjoy my collection at this amazing auction preview. I built this collection to honor the legends behind and on the pages. Now it is time for me to share the collection with the next generation. I hope you will appreciate and safeguard it as much as I have" shares owner, Jon Berk.

In addition to the has-to-be-seen-to-be-believed cover to Planet Comics #1, the ComicConnect auction preview in conjunction with Metropolis Gallery will showcase art from Jack Kirby, Alex Schomburg, Jerry Robinson, Steve Ditko, Carmine Infantino, and so much more.


Items will be available for bidding May 15th, ComicConnect's completely online auction will end June 12th through June 16th.  For more information on the auction or other questions email ComicConnect at [email protected].
