A smash-and-grab crook stole $42,000 worth of comic books from a Denver Store. Shouldn’t I be explaining this to you? isn’t that our thing? Also, which Denver Store?
Mile High Comics. Fox31 Denver says the store “is known for its large collection” and “has some of the rarest and most expensive comic books in the world”. Once he broke the glass, the dastardly devil stole valuable books that “had been locked in Mile High Comics’ showcase at 4600 Jason St. ahead of Denver Comic Con this weekend”.
Do we know who did it? Was it the Joker? It was the Joker, right?
We don’t know who did it, but this cruel crook cut himself on the glass and afterwards he tried to clean up the blood with toilet cleaner.
Just one question: Did he steal a Batman comic?

On a serious note, the merchandise stolen from the Denver store “includes the first ‘Avengers’ comic book, the first ‘Iron Man’ book and a rare autographed ‘Spider-Man’ edition”. It’s some expensive comic, and supposedly that Avengers comic book is wroth “about $14,000, according to experts” and fourteen books stolen are, all together, total about $42,000.
“Whoever did it knew what they were going for,” William Moulton of Mile High Comics told Denver7.
This seems right on the money, given that the security footage shows “the thief picking specific comics and putting them in a plastic bin”.

His plan didn’t go off without a hitch, however, because in the process, “the burglar cut his hand or arm on a piece of broken glass” before proceeding to grab window cleaner and toilet bowl cleaner wipe up the blood.
The thief eventually took both the comics and the trash can filled with the bits of broken glass.
As of now the thief remains at large, but even Batman encourages anyone with information to call Denver Police at (720) 913-2000.
