Hi, I'd like to thank you for taking the time to check out my website.  My name is Tim Bildhauser and I'm known as lscomics on the comic related sites that I frequent.  I lived in Northwest Indiana for 43 years and in October of 2014 moved to St. Petersburg, Florida.  I've been in the hobby, both collecting and selling comic books, for over 30 years.  I've always been a fan of signatures so many of the books you see displayed on the site are signed by various creators.  Several years ago I switched the main focus of my collecting from American published books to foreign editions, mainly those with art by Neal Adams, Bernie Wrightson and Nick Cardy.  Along the way I've also managed to dig up quite a few other odds and ends from various countries as well.

I'm the Associate Editor of Foreign Comic Collector magazine ( http://foreigncomiccollector.webs.com/ ) which is an online fan publication about foreign editions of comics published in the US as well as original material published around the globe.
I relocated to Florida in October of 2014 to work as a grader at CBCS Comics. https://www.cbcscomics.com/#/index
I have been added to the list of advisers to the Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide as Foreign Comic Book Specialist.
Due to recent developments I have resigned from my position as a grader at CBCS and moved back to NW Indiana.  I will, however, be staying on with the company as Foreign Comic Specialist & will be working many of the conventions throughout the year where I'll do my best to advise collectors submitting comics for grading about whether or not a book is worth submitting as well as answering general questions about grading and foreign comics.

Have questions or comments?  Contact me here.

I'm sure that while checking out the site you've seen quite a few books you never even knew existed.  Collecting foreign editions isn't for everyone but I hope that I've been able to broaden your horizons at least a little.

If you have any questions or just want to offer feedback about the site fill out the form below and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.  I look forward to hearing from you!
Thank you for contacting us. We will get back to you as soon as possible
