Heritage Comics Website Tops 3000 Registered Members!

Dallas, TX -- Heritage Comics Auctions is pleased to announce that membership in its on-line community has recently topped 3000 in just over six months of operation. While is a free website, taking the extra step and becoming a member of HCA (which is also free, and requires only a few minutes to register) entitles members to bid on-line in both Signature sales, and internet-only Amazing Comics Auctions. Members also receive a weekly e-newsletter, updates on important happenings in Heritage Comics, access to Heritage’s Permanent Auction Archive (including prices realized) plus 20% rebates on CGC submissions.

This 3000-member milestone takes place just a few days before HCA’s second Signature auction, which features over $2 million worth of rare comics, original art, and movie posters.

“This is a great show of support, and we’re very pleased to be topping 3000 members,” said ACA Assistant Director Jeff Smith. “Membership far exceeds our initial projections, and we couldn’t be happier. However, we’re not resting on our laurels, and we want that number up to at least 4000 by our next auction at WizardWorld over the 4th of July weekend!”

HCA director John Petty also expressed his appreciation: “We're thrilled that 3,000 people have chosen to become part of the Heritage family. It shows that the comic, original art, and movie poster market is strong and thriving, and this is good news for everyone. Heritage looks forward to bringing more services and benefits to our comics family in the future, and deeply appreciates the interest and support that has been demonstrated by our members.”

Heritage Comics conducts three $1 million+ live “Signature” comics and original art auctions per year, but bidders can participate online in Signature auctions as well.
