More about Dr. Kahn:

Dr. Steven Kahn remembers that the call came at 11:21. The oral surgeon who gave it all up to follow his lifelong passion of collecting pop culture got a call from someone who had a couple of beaten up comics. He was told the covers were coming off and they were in terrible shape, but would he like to buy them. A nanosecond later, Kahn hopped into his car and drove 100 miles to pick up the first two Spiderman comics ever produced.

It was so much fun, he recalls.  The guy had a price in mind after he had done his research, but Dr. Kahn was able to offer him three times that amount and everyone went home very happy.

A lifetime collector, Dr. Kahn decided after 43 years of the stresses of being an oral surgeon that there had to be a more fun way to live his life. He opened the Inner Child Comics and Collectibles store in Downtown Kenosha  as he transitioned from practice to fun.

"I chose Kenosha to open the store because it was near Racine, the home of Western Publishing Company, which produced comics and such for Disney as well as Gold Key and Dell comics.  The real treasure that still lurks around here is the original art for these comics," Kahn says. “I truly believe that another call is coming for all of that kind of stuff.”

His other dream is to open a pop culture museum in Kenosha and he is stocking up for that in his store. Vintage comics, toys, and believe it or not, even Nintendo games are all woven into our collective zeitgeist, he says. For now, however, he will have to focus on what call will come next, as the treasure hunter waits for the next hidden treasure to surface.

"I have found that the most rewarding part of this is to find a collector who is either downsizing or is in need of cash that treasures what he has and wants a custodian for his collection, not just someone eager to flip lifelong collections for a quick buck," says Kahn.  "These items have an energy of their own and should still be honored and cared for as they were for a lifetime by someone else."

Dr. Kahn has appeared on Fox 6 Milwaukee news at the first Fantasticon Convention in Milwaukee (October 2014) and the Hardcore Pawn: Chicago television series (July 2013). In 2017, he was named an Advisor to The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide. Dr. Kahn can be heard each weekend on the Kenosha radio station WLIP. He has a show called The Pop Culture Collector.
