Spotlight: Turok, Son of Stone sales

Monday, February 23, 2009

Here's something that should interest collectors of Dell, Gold Key, and Whitman comics — and the later Valiant and Acclaim comics: The complete sales history of Turok, Son of Stone is now on The Comics Chronicles, including all data from all the Statements of Ownership ever printed in the title. We even go back to 1957, when there were no figures printed but the statements still ran. The Statements were photocopied from a complete set and provided to me in the 1990s by a writer who signed his name simply "Bill Turok." Thanks, Bill!

Interestingly, the highest reported sales of Turok from its original run were lower than Capital City Distribution's sales, alone, of the first issue of Valiant's Turok, Dinosaur Hunter in 1993. (That issue, with its "chromium" cover, cost $3.50, about what the average comic book today sells for.) Another time-lost time...

The Title Spotlights section is coming together slowly, yet, but this is one title report that's likely complete.

Unrelated note: My work on Comichron is among the topics in an interview just posted on ComicsCareer. You, too, can count comics for fun and profit. Well, for fun...
