I didn't either until I saw this.

I did know there were paperback vending machines back in the 1940s ... the books that were sold out of them are known as "LA Bantam" books because they were only test-marketed in Los Angeles and they only contained books from the publisher Bantam. In all my years of collecting paperbacks, I only ever found two "LA Bantams"... the thing is, they have minimal or no cover art because they were sold out of vending machines, so they figured they wouldn't need to bother.

This comic book vending machine is a whole 'nother thing entirely. I used to think a 1940's wooden DC comic rack was the ultimate "display collectible", but this thing is just plain awesome. I'm sure it still works, as these vending machines are usually built to take abuse. ME WANT.

man, that is a beaut. I would love to find one of these, but I'm guessing the chances are slim based on how many people never heard of these at all. Awesome design. Hell, I would buy a replica of this even. drool.
