CRANSTON, RI.- An outstanding single-owner Marvel comic book collection featuring copies of Incredible Hulk #181, Amazing Spider-Man Annual #1, Werewolf By Night #32, Tales of Suspense #39 and Iron Man #1 will be sold to the highest bidder with no reserves on Saturday, September 16th, by Bruneau & Co, Auctioneers, online and live in the gallery.

The collection is that of William Troy Potter, who turned his passion into a career, being the proprietor of Wonderland Comics in Putnam, Conn.

The rest are bagged and boarded raw groupings.

Numerous other Silver through Modern Age key issues will come up for bid. “Troy had a focus on collecting rare 30-cent and 35-cent variants, along with Mark Jewelers, National Diamond and Mennen insert variant comic books,” said Travis Landry, Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers’ Director of Pop Culture. “I believe this will be our largest auction ever.”
