Welcome to ComicArtFans!

  

Shell, Larry

Hi, I’m Larry Shell, a native of New Jersey who’s been an original comic art dealer and collector for over 40 years.

I began collecting original art in the early 1970s, when I was offered a couple of original newspaper dailies for some comic books I was selling at a NY convention. I then got the art bug and haven’t looked back since. I’ve sold art on and off, seriously for the past 10 years and have represented a number of artists.

I was Director of Publications for the late, great Heroes World Distribution (the third largest comic book distributor in the country until its demise), where I edited and packaged their 250+ page monthly catalog, along with several specialty catalogs for 10 years. My article, “How To Solicit In The Direct Market” was published in Comics Buyer’s Guide and served as a template for many small publishers for a number of years. I have also done freelance marketing consulting for several small publishers.

I’ve been self-publishing sporadically since 1975 when I released a funny animal horror comic entitled, The Barn of Fear, whose contributors included such industry professionals as Doug Moench, Tom Sutton and Alfredo Alcala. I also packaged a couple of other titles, 50s Funnies published by Kitchen Sink Press and the original Alien Encounters #1 published by Fantaco Enterprises. I later licensed the title to Eclipse Comics. In the early 80s, in collaboration with Alcala, I contributed a story to Heavy Metal Magazine. In the late 1980s, I formed Shel-Tone Publications, which published a number of trading card sets and a CD, the soundtrack to R.Crumb: The Musical. We’re on publishing hiatus but all available products are available online at http://www.shel-tone.com.

Outside of comics and spending too much time trolling on eBay, My other interests are Music and Movie/TV related as if one collecting interest wasn’t enough!

I’m very excited about being part of the Comic Art Fans site and look forward to interacting with my fellow collectors!
