I just got a call this morning from Ted Fisher JR. That Captain Collecto AKA Ted Fisher passed away Friday night 4/3/09.

He was like a second father to me I'm having a hard time wraping my head around this right now. Ted will be missed.

:(

Great, great story. In fact, it's not simply your story; you are in some small way a part of the entire Valiant story. How cool is that?

I tip my hat.

You forgot to say how you made a home for my childhood Valiant collection when my comic book shop closed in 2003.

Best $20 you probably ever spent lol

If it weren't for the bump I don't think I would have ever read it, even after knowing you all these years. Such cool stuff in there.

Thank you for sharing. My intro to Valiant was when a buddy loaned me his "clipped" Harbingers (for Unity 0 I believe) to read. Loved 'em. It was nuts how hot that market got for a while.
