Who We Are
Basement Comics has been in existence since 1991 but Albert Stoltz, its co-founder and current president, has been in the business of buying, selling, and collecting comics since the early 1970's.  Albert is a recognized authority in the comic book and paper collectibles market and has been an advisor to the Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide for over ten years.  From his office and warehouse in Edgewood, Maryland, he and his staff maintain the on-line Basement Comics presense (look for his virtual stores on eBay and Amazon) and prepare for shows all around the country.

To say that Albert has an interest in the preservation of paper collectibles is an understatement.  He's devoted years consulting with experts around the country and delving into the secrets of comic and magazine pressing and restoration.  It wasn't until he'd applied his newly-acquired knowledge to thousands of books from his own inventory to perfect his own technique that he decided to offer this unique service to the interested comic collector and retailer.
