Underground Comics are in Abundance at Ray the Trader

Off the wall, weird comics are called underground comics, and many of them come from California.  Ray the Traders stores at 2505 NW Magnolia Ave have piles of them, and there are quite a lot at the I-75 Super Flea Market store.

Many of the supreme classics of the weird comic world emerged in the 1960’s with the hippies in San Francisco and I’ll certify some of the drugs must have been mixed in the ink.  Ray has some of these top of the head magazines.

One of the rare series in the early years of undergrounds was the Jesus story.  Jesus returns in this comic and he is now a hippie professor who walks on the grass and the angry cops beat him in the head and clamp him in jail.  If you have any comics for sale bring them to Ray at the flea market.  We are especially thrilled by rare undergrounds.  Let us see that you have.

Bartering for Business or Pleasure

My swap and trade business is at 2505 NW Magnolia Ave in Ocala Florida.  I trade and sell things there Mon. Tues, Thur and Friday from 11 am to 2 pm.  On weekends I operate from the I-75 SuperFlea Market on NW 44th Ave. on Friday from 7:30 am to 2 PM. 

People are always calling me asking do you take THIS or THAT.  Well I take most everything if it’s small or smallish and people collect it.  The really best things to bring in and trade are items that you no longer want to keep, or things, that people collect, but you don’t.  DON’T WANTS ARE THE BEST THINGS TO TRADE.  I don’t trade full sized cars (or big things like that).

Art & Reading Merge in Comic Books

Every town should have a comic book store.  To tell the exact truth I learned to read using comic books.  Of course I also loved the comic strips, and when I was 3, 4 and 5  I REALLY wanted to know what the characters were saying as the pictures talked to each other.  Well I could make up what they said, but I was curious about what they were actually saying in the stories.

As a teacher I found that many  students,  that everyone said couldn’t read, and those who hated reading loved READING COMICS.  So why do schools look with such horror at comic books — you would think it was an evil kind of book.  Teacher mostly take up and don’t give back the ONLY BOOKS BAD STUDENTS AND GOOD STUDENTS LOVE TO READ.

Comic books are also great for the study of art.  Many art students begin by reading and drawing art like they see in comic books.  Then they graduate to art they see in life in general  COMIC BOOKS ARE GREAT EDUCATION TOOLS!  They are so wonderful that I think that every town should have a book store like RAY THE TRADER.  In fact book stores are as essential as universities and have helped students for generations.  America is great because of comics like  Captain America,  Superman, Wonder Woman

Comics in Ocala since 1967

Ray the Trader’s is a comic book store that got started at Jerry’s Flea Market in 1967.  The comic trade went on for more than 20 years on Silver Springs Blvd. at the Esquire Shopping Center on the corner of 8th Ave.

Another location for Ray the Trader in Ocala was at 1733 E. Silver Springs Blvd. (above the Ocala Shopping Center). 

During most of this time we also had a store at 2505 NW Magnolia Ave. — where it is now.

Ray the Trader is a place to buy, sell and trade comics and many other collectables.  Customers can bring in almost anything that others collect and get credit for things they collect.
