From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:09 pm on 13 October 2010

Tom Mackie loved comic books. He loved collecting them. A lot of them. Mr. Mackie died two years ago, and now his collection of about 10,000 comics is up for auction. The collection includes a big selection of Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers comics, and other classics like Hurricane Hawk, Jungle Jim, Secret Agent X-9, Prince Valiant, Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and Popeye. Tom's daughter, Kathleen Mackie, says the family home in Auckland was always full of boxes of comics.
