Comic book collectors are still collectors and every collector enjoys a good story.

I know, I know, it's a comic book blog, why should I read an excellently written article in collectorsweekly about a woman makeup mogul?  Fine, skip the article.  

But if you are a collector then try this exercise: there is a picture of a makeup compact shaped like a frog in the article.  Very cute.  But if you knew the story behind it...you'd buy it.  Happens all the time.  Collector's rarely just buy the comic/dish/toy.  In their mind they are buying the story.  Here is an excellent article about a fascinating woman and after reading her story, if you are a collector and you came across something that was from her company in the 20s...you might just buy it.
