Confessions of a Collector – misdemeanours of a comic book addiction
A blog serialising the memoirs of Ian Rakoff, screenwriter, film editor and obsessive comic book collector. Ian grew up in the 1940s and 50s under apartheid in South Africa where he began collecting comic books. Forced to give up his childhood collection, Ian then began collecting again years later following a move to England. His vast collection is now housed at the V&A’s National Art Library.
