The Resource Brian Flota comic book collection, 1952-1999
- Brian Flota comic book collection, 1952-1999
- The Brian Flota Comic Book Collection consists of 7.84 linear feet of over 1,900 comics from the years 1948-1999. It is made up of mostly of comic books, although it also includes a TV guide from the 1990s, children's magazines from Walt Disney, and a few other materials from independent publishers. While the publication dates on the comic books range from 1948-1999, the majority of the issues were released in or near to the 1980s, just before and while Flota was actively collecting the materials. Box 12 is a half-sized Hollinger box that contains oversized comics. Box 12 also contains a copy of the cardboard backing for the first comic in the collection, a June 1974 issue of Justice League of America
- Biographical or historical data
- This collection was assembled by Dr. Brian Flota, English Liaison Librarian at James Madison University Libraries. The collection had its start in 1983, when Flota was seven years old and his father gave him approximately one hundred comics. From that early start, Flota began collecting in earnest in 1987 at the age of eleven, eventually amassing around 2,700 comics when he ceased collecting around 1998. Of those 2,700 comics, Flota donated a portion of the collection to the University of California, Riverside prior to his donation to JMU Special Collections in 2015.
