Major Payne's Comic Compound Takes the Pain Out of Comic Collecting

Edwin Payne, the owner and operator of Major Payne's Comic Compound, is proud to announce the grand opening of his store location on Hawthorne Boulevard in Torrance, California. The dream to open a brick-and-mortar store was created out of a drive and passion to help comic collectors and enthusiasts find what they are searching for.

“I am actually Major Payne, having served in the military for over 25 years. I’m a geek at heart and love all things comics. I turned that passion into a service to help other comic collectors take the 'pain' out of finding comics and comic art.” – Edwin Payne

Edwin has watched the comic collectibles market have its highest growth of investment through 2020 and 2021. While many consider comics as entertainment, more people are beginning to understand the financial and preservation benefits of the comic collecting & grading process. According to, the three most expensive comic books in the world are Action Comics #1 (CGC 9.0), which commanded a $3.2 Million price tag, followed by Action Comics #1 (CGC 8.5) at $1.5 Million, and Amazing Fantasy #15 for $1.1 Million. Imagine those comic book funds paying for your children's education, buying a house, or even retiring.
