Comic Book Collections II
Not so much comic books as pulp magazines, but the family of a recently deceased 92-year-old man donated 35,000 science fiction and pulp magazines dating back to the 19th century to the University of Calgary. We'll see how they catalog and archive the materials -- much less make them accessible to the public, but this amazing research treasure trove might very well dwarf the MIT Science Fiction Society Library, which claims to offer the "world's largest open-shelf collection of science fiction."

Thanks to BoingBoing.
