Whether one is interested in today’s Disney comics, the story of Hopalong Cassidy, cast-iron mechanical banks, EC Comics, hard to find character timepieces, Tiffany Studios lamps, Carl Barks lithographs, or the history of collectibles, this new site is an excellent place to find it all.
“While our other sites have been running for quite some time, we’re very happy to provide this focal point, which gives a much better idea of the scope of the Geppi’s Entertainment Publishing & Auctions family of companies,” said John K. Snyder, Jr., President of Geppi’s Entertainment.
Each of the sites from the company’s individual units is still up and running and will remain so. This new site is designed to serve as a gateway for those new to Geppi’s Entertainment as well as old friends interested in seeing the depth and breadth of the operation.
