Valuable comic book collection swiped from former state senator

Former State Sen. Marc C. Panepinto could use some help from the Justice League.

Someone recently stole a bunch of high-priced collectibles from him. Panepinto told Buffalo police that a box of comic books – a collection he valued somewhere in the neighborhood of $20,000 to $40,000 – had been taken, according to a city police report.

Panepinto told officers the box of roughly 100 comic books were stolen sometime between Sept. 22 and Nov. 26. The Buffalo attorney moved to a home on Chapin Parkway near the end of September and the box may have been taken then, he told police.

The News was unable to reach Panepinto on Friday.

Our first question might have been, "Is he a Batman guy or a Superman guy?"
