1964, New York City. A young kid named Gary Dolgoff discovered his older brother’s stash of beat-up Superman comics and it changed his life forever! The characters, the costumes, the universes: his imagination soared and he was filled with wonder. He soon immersed himself in Marvel comics (still his favorite to this day) and he was hooked.
At 16, he bought his first collection from legendary comic artist Frank Brunner- and Gary Dolgoff Comics was born!
He started growing his inventory and quickly developed a reputation as a serious and trustworthy dealer of comics and original comic art. He then established a location at the Brooklyn Navy Yard and started flying around the country, buying collections, and driving back with truckloads of comics!
In the late 90s, Gary fell in love with western Massachusetts and moved his operation to the Eastworks building in Easthampton. Gary Dolgoff Comics grew like never before and he soon had a collection of over a million comics! He also strengthened his inventory of original comic art, comic magazines, vintage toys, trading cards, and other collectibles.
Presently, Gary has a team of ten talented employees (experts in comics and collectibles) assisting with the ever-expanding Gary Dolgoff Comics! Gary Dolgoff has been at it for over 50 years and not even thinking about slowing down!
THE GDC TEAM!
The youngest member! I deal with shipping books. Also worked on the website. Big fan of video games, I also enjoy graphic novels and working on my digital art! LOVE the covers of Jimmy Olsen comics.
Some comics I've enjoyed include Batman: The Long Halloween, Ms Marvel, SuperMutant Magic Academy, Tomie, and My Favorite Thing Is Monsters.
I'm a people person.
-REIGNING KING OF TRIVIA-
My name is DAN! I do some computer-related work at The Warehouse. In my Free-Time, I like to Play Guitar in Bands, Watch Films, Paint Miniatures, Play D&D, Read Comics and Look At Websites! I have been here for 5 Years and am the most Recent Addition to the Gary Dolgoff Comics Crew. I am the Second Youngest Employee.
I love Swamp Thing, Hellboy and Horror Comics! I like to think about Matter-Eater Lad. I have also shown an interest in Pulp-Magazines…

Comic grader/assessor, warehouse assistant/advisor. I’ve worked at GDC for nearly half of my life = a long time! I prefer bikes to cars. Music is the healing force of the universe.
My love of comics runs deep, fostered by an unhealthy relationship with early Image comics and the Death of Superman arc in my youth, but has luckily grown to include favorites from all eras and genres - though I am most interested in the obscure and esoteric. Listing just a couple favorites feels too hard, but my discovery of Raw and the first Drawn and Quarterly anthologies in my later teens set the foundation for where my comics’ heart now points. But of course: Kirby is King; I’m continually bowled over by Emma Rios work; and Miyazaki’s Nausicaa is a masterpiece. So yeah, a little bit of everything!
I'm the 9th youngest!
Favorite comic book titles include Conan the Barbarian, Nancy, and Luke Cage.
Mark has a natural affinity for nearly mindless tasks with no end, making him a fine candidate for putting every blessed thing in alpha-numeric order. His hatred of mucilaginous scotch tape from the 1970's fuels the cleansing fires of a mind bent on tidying up the place. For over a decade the third youngest employee has haunted the halls of this hallowed house of wares, leaving only to organize LEGO and action figures at home.
Thinks he likes the idea of reading X-Men comics.
The 8th youngest! I mostly do grading, but like everybody else, I help out where I can.
The first comic I remember buying was Spider-Man #17 at the Union Market in New Jersey -- Ann Nocenti made me a lifelong comics fan! Other favs: Neil Gaiman's Sandman, Valiant Comics (see also: BWS), Incredible Hulk #127, Frank Thorne
I like to draw, too -- you'll see some of my stuff in the blog!
