Welcome, Underground Comix fans!

I am Sir Real, and this is Sir Real's Underground Comix Classix.
This site is my collection of Underground Comix (and a few like items).
That's all it is.

It is not an Underground Comix Price Guide.
It is not a Guide to Comix Reprints.
It is just my collection.

Someone in California appears to have these personalized license plates.  I sure would like to know who.  I wouldn't mind attempting to negotiate  for either of them.  I have just the car to put one of them on.

I originally created this site to help me easily determine what I had in my collection.  When I'm out buying, either by online auction or other location, and I needed to  know what particular edition or title I already had, I could refer to this site.  I have purchased duplicates in the past, and I try to avoid doing that. My site has helped  me keep things straight, and is readily available to me, no matter where I am.  It is not a fancy site. Pretty bare-bones, actually. But for a collection site that was only  intended for my use, it gets a pretty fair number of hits every day.

As a side-effect, it has vaulted me into the little-known world of Underground Comix Collecting.  UG collectors are generally a tight lipped bunch, gleefully sitting on  their hoard of comix.  For some reason, the underground genre has recently started to enjoy a small amount of popularity.  As a result, I've been contacted by a number of the  original artists, and a large number of fans.  If you're a UG collector, want to be a UG collector, or just have an Underground Comix question, your best bet is to visit the  wealth of Comix knowledge at the Comics Price Guide Forums.

And now for a brief description of what you'll find here...

Home - You're looking at it. This link will always return you here.

Who Is Sir Real? - This is my little explanation of how I got into Underground Comix Collecting.

Comix Blog - Yeah, I keep a blog, too. Its not much, but I find it worthwhile. And you can leave  comments there, too.

Vanity Page - My small collection of renditions of myself as done by a variety of artists. If you'd like to contribute, I'm MORE than happy to  display it here.

Numeric, A-Z - This is the core of my comix collection, sorted in alpha order.

Comix Series - Some comix ran in long series, like Rip Off Comix, or  American Splendor.  I figure that any comix that had eight or more titles constituted a series.

Books - Not everything is comix.  This is where all the comix-related books are stored.

Posters - I'm using this as a pretty broad category here.  Posters are here, plus portfolios, original art, and pretty much  any single, flat item.

Comix Related Stuff - Here you'll find videos, trading cards, munchie bars, and other stuff.

Non-Undergrounds - These are comics that should have been undergrounds, or are done by artists that started in the underground.

Wants - While there are probably hundreds of comix that I want, these are comix that I've got my eye open for.  If you've got something  I want (or think I might want), feel free to drop me a line.  I'm pretty discriminating and tough in dealing with individuals.  I've been burned before, but I am honest  in my dealings.  If you do write to me, please make sure that your subject line at least has "Underground Comix" in it.  Otherwise it stands a good chance of  being tagged as spam and deleted.

I am always open to suggestions as to how I could improve this site.
