CRAZY ED is ALIVE & WELL! Read more about what’s been “going on”
Serious or casual comic collectors, mainly in Florida (but also Nationally in some Convention venues) know Ed to be a straight forward knowledgeable comic expert and a serious collector & fan, having a great passion for the hobby. For 25+ years Ed has operated in the NORTH MIAMI, FL area. Maintaining a warehouse location (by appointment) he prepped for comic conventions (or “shows”) and operated a growing mail order and internet presence.
Ed is now over 60, and has a few logical reasons why his “comic business” has to evolve:
1. COMIC CONVENTIONS: fans have seen Ed less as he has cut back the number of National shows he attends: Ed’s schedule was as many as 20 comic conventions a year, with travel to major shows at out of state venues, Chicago, NYC, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Detroit, Baltimore, North Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia and more!
Hiring staff to assist with travel, lifting heavy boxes, set up and run a booth at a busy convention has proven difficult. So Ed has reduced his travel to regional and out-of- state shows within a one day drive (e.g Georgia)
Ed will miss all the out-of state fans and industry people he dealt with for 20 + years, and send his best wishes and affections. Send me an e-mail, I will do my best to reply. Call me and I will do my best to return each and very call!
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO REACH ME at one of the shows I STILL attend, I post a notice on this page of the upcoming event, its location and dates.
2. ONE on ONE SALES/APPOINTMENT:
Ed had maintained a warehouse in North Miami, FL near the FIU North Campus (off US1 and NE 151st Street) It was scaled back on inventory and closed March 2017.
Collectors or people selling a collection have looked to Ed for a personal face-toface for an assessment, advise or to buy. While arrangements for a private meeting may be a bit more complex, Ed is still available for anyone who needs to contact him about the industry.
We still have all the “good stuff” that we display at shows and that inventory stored in his warehouse! Comics, CGC graded and raw, high grade or readers, Marvel DC or Dell/Gold Key, Golden age, silver or bronze age comics and comic related materials, including art, trading cards, autographs, back issues, memorabilia and the like!
DON’T WORRY: We can still meet with you, at your home (locally) or in some other locale. It can be arranged.
Exa,ple-if you want to sell your comics, Ed has developed a “mail it to him” system that has proven fair and effective! You can read about it!

MORE ABOUT COMIC CONVENTION/SHOW HELP:
If you see an upcoming show that Ed is attending (in Florida or otherwise) and you would like to work at the show, with Ed in a great Vendor’s exhibit, contact me and let me know and we will see how you can help!
I usually need 1-2 responsible people, preferably males whom are licensed drivers (to help move the van if need be) who can take instructions for short periods and help Ed with the show set-up, security and customer help, and stay after the show to assist at pack up. You may expect to have lots of free time to circle and enjoy the show, and you will get free passes for the show as Ed’s helper and some cash pay from Ed to help you shop.
PART TIME EMPLOYMENT POSSIBILITIES ARE VERY REALISTIC IF THERE IS A FIT BETWEEN YOUR AVAILABLE TIME & INTEREST in the COMIC BUSINESS!
ALL-IN-ALL, Crazy Ed expects to be an active part of the comic industry for many years to come, at a few shows, by appointment, by phone, via eBay and through this web-site!
Thanks for all the loyal fans and friends whom have kept in touch to make sure Ed was still “alive and well” and while we miss seeing you as often, I still look forward to hearing from you! Check out this website from time to time!
