  1. And finally, we have what has to be the greatest of all Superman gorilla covers...or at least the zaniest!

    Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen #98

    I mean, c'mon...what's not to love about this one...

    Jimmy as Tarzan, getting married to a female King Kong in a bridal veil, with the ceremony being performed by Superman, who just happens to be the local witch doctor.  Since he's a witch doctor, he has brought with him his boiling cauldron.  It's good to know they went for at least one aspect of realism with this cover!

    Whatever drugs they were smoking back in 1966, I hope that a) they didn't screw up the writer and artist for life, or b) they helped you make heads or tails of this cover!

    This particular issue I got in a bulk lot of Jimmy Olsen titles from one of the LCS' auctions.  I think I ended up paying under $2 when everything was said and done.  Always on the prowl for an upgrade of this one.

    Have a great weekend everyone.  Don't do anything rash that you'll regret like our impetuous friend Jimmy!

    Swamp Thing #5

    Cover Impressions:

    Swamp Thing, Liz and guy in a blue suit running and fighting a pack of pinkish looking humanoids. A creepy looking house in the background. Another solid cover.

    Swamp Thing #5 (September, 1982)
    Title: The Screams of Hungry Flesh
    Credits:
    Writer-Martin Pasko
    Art-Tom Yeates
    Editor-Len Wein
    Colorist-Tatjana Wood
    Letterer-John Costanza

    Same creative team as the previous issues.

    Plot:

    Issue 5, opens with Swamp Thing being transported to a Sunderland medical clinic at the request of Liz from the previous issue. Swamp Thing after a brief attempt to escape is subdued by the clinic guards. Meanwhile Liz is leaving Pineboro and discovers that her assistant producer Paul has already left without telling anybody of where he is going. Back at the clinic Swamp Thing awakens to find that his wounds have been healed by Dr. Barclay who says that he is a psychic healer. (However he still slowly dying since issue #1 due to some unknown cause.) Swamp Thing later escapes and finds the true source of his miraculous recovery, the Sunderland Corp is using empaths to draw the wounds into themselves.  As he fights his way out of the clinic, Swamp Thing finds both Dr. Barclay and Liz and they make a quick getaway. The issue ends with the empaths over running the facility and Dr. Kay escaping by using the guards to cover his escape. 

    Remarks:

    Another quick moving issue and a lot of revelations about the overall plot. First we find that Dr Kay is not dead from issue 2, he used the same method of using the Sunderland empaths to heal his burns. Dennis (Dr. Barclay) and Liz both find out that their employer Sunderland Corp is not exactly an ethical company and may have many sinister plots in motion.

    Pros:

    Revelations about the overall plot.

    Liz and Dennis are joining Team Swamp Thing.

    Cons:

    Issue felt a bit choppy in regards to pacing.

    Grade: C+

  4. This will basically be my toy/collectible journal. I say Cobra first because I collect Cobra over most of the Joes. (thumbsu 80s were great for many reasons. The toys and franchises as a whole remain the best in my opinion. It's hard not to be nostalgic about all of the 80s toy lines and collect them all. But for my wallets sake I try to limit myself to GI Joe and Transformers. Those were my two main ones growing up as a kid. I held onto a few of my G1 transformers but unfortunately don't have the Joes anymore. When I got back into collecting a few years ago they did away with the O-Ring Joes and came out with the 25th line. Which looked like the original but more detailed :luhv: More new Joes have come out since then with the new style as well as vehicles. I dig it. I just wish GI Joe was more popular and more stores carried them. Transformers did the same with the masterpiece line redesigning them for us adult collectors lol. They are awesome!

    Here is my most recent acquisition I got in a trade. Nice batch of 25th figs and a Snake Eyes renegade. Part of the trade I did was a DJ Hero renegade turntable set for the PS3 that my father in law hooked me up with from a garage sale. I love when he is able to get some cool stuff that I can trade towards toys or comics. Last year I was able to trade a pair of car ramps for a nice lot of comics that included a couple of first hellboy SDCC 2. Thank you father in law!

  5. I finally completed my write-up for my newly acquired world class copy of Incredible Hulk #181 CGC 9.8 W for my CGC Registry Set entitled, "Enter Wolverine!" Just wanted to share with the larger CGC Comic Collecting Community! Enjoy!! -Professor Pecora

    [AND NOW...THE WOLVERINE!]

    Incredible Hulk #181 showcases the 1st full appearance of Wolverine and his 2nd overall appearance in the history of comics!

     

    Moreover, there are only a handful of comic books that have literally stood the test of time and have reigned over any other book of its era; Incredible Hulk #181 is one of those exceptions!

     

    If you were to think of a single comic book to represent the most sought-after, most valuable and most significant issue of an entire age, it would be Action Comics #1 of the Golden Age (1938-1955); Amazing Fantasy #15 of the Silver Age (1956-1969); and Incredible Hulk #181 of the Bronze Age (1970-1984). In other words, the 1st appearances of Superman, Spider-Man and Wolverine have superseded the importance of any other character of their respective time periods!

     

    With that said, the world was introduced to the claw-slashing, berserker-raged mutant Wolverine, who made a long-lasting first impression during his debut in November of 1974, as he battled the most powerful character in the Marvel Universe—the Incredible Hulk! However, Wolverine wasn’t anything like the major superheroes before him; instead, he was ill-mannered, hot-tempered and walked the earth with a tortured soul, as he would later struggle with his origins and the purpose of his creation. He was a government experiment—the perfect weapon—Weapon X! As a direct result, the “anti-hero” was born!

     

    Wolverine was originally created by writer Len Wein and designed by Marvel Art Director, John Romita, Sr. However, in October of 1974; it was the late Herb Trimpe (May 26, 1939 – April 13, 2015) who first drew the character for publication in a last panel cameo featured in the Incredible Hulk #180. The following month, Wolverine was depicted on the front cover lunging in midair and slashing through heavy chains to attack the Goliath Green Machine! In my personal opinion, this is by far the most badass 1st appearance entrance in the history of comics! Wolverine battled the most powerful being in the Marvel Universe head on, so the story title, “AND NOW…the WOLVERINE!” served as an impact statement as if to say, “move over Hulk…another badass is in town to take on all challengers!” With that being said, Herb Trimpe’s classic cover of Incredible Hulk #181 forever remains etched in the hearts and minds of all Wolverine fans and collectors, and is easily recognized and revered worldwide by any comic book collector or connoisseur!

     

    Roughly 8 months later in the Summer of 1975, Wolverine made his 2nd “full” appearance in Giant-Size X-Men #1 and became a major addition to the new X-Men team. While Wolverine was kicking a** and talking trash in the process, he became increasingly popular with avid X-Men readers and became the most popular character on the X-Men roster! From this success, Marvel would later feature Wolverine in his 1st solo comic; in a classic four-part miniseries, which was published from September – December of 1982. Fast forward a little over six years ahead, and Marvel finally catapulted Wolverine into his own monthly series in November of 1988! Furthermore, in the 43 years of his existence, Wolverine has become the most popular character in the entire Marvel Universe, next to the franchise’s marquee character—the Amazing Spider-Man!

     

    In the Marvel cinematic world, Wolverine has been characterized on the silver screen by famed actor Hugh Jackman for an astonishing 17 consecutive years in a total of 9 films! With the start of the new millennium in the year 2000 up until the year 2017, Hugh Jackman (as Wolverine) has been featured in the following Marvel films: X-Men (2000); X2: X-Men United (2003); X-Men: The Last Stand (2006); X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009); X-Men: First Class (2011); The Wolverine (2013); X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014); X-Men: Apocalypse (2016); and Logan (2017).

     

    To say that Hugh Jackman has had success towards making Wolverine and the X-Men a viable movie franchise would be a gross understatement! Rather, he has ventured into “legendary status,” with almost 2 decades of filmmaking and helping to contribute a Worldwide Box Office Total of OVER 5 BILLION DOLLARS! As a direct result, copies of Incredible Hulk #181 will only continue to appreciate and rise in value annually, making it not only the most coveted book of the Bronze Age to collect and showcase, but one of the most secure long-term investments!

     

    According to the CGC Census Report as of June 20, 2017, out of an impressive 9,477 copies gradedonly one (1) freak of nature was graded (WAY BACK in April of 2001) as a Universal MINT 9.9, which sold for $150,000 on Comic Link back in February of 2011! Furthermore, only ninety-nine (99) copies (including my copy) were graded as a Universal 9.8 and only seven (7) copies were graded as a Signature Series 9.8. With these statistics in mind, the rarity factor for a CGC Universal IH #181 in 9.8 is only 1% of the total population! That’s extremely rare! Considering the vast number of copies that have already been professionally graded and the fact that many 9.8 copies are stashed away in private collections, it is going to become increasingly difficult to locate any 9.8 examples; raw or professionally graded!

     

    On that note, this particular CGC 9.8 copy sports PERFECT COVER WRAPPERFECT CENTERINGand PERFECT WHITE PAGE QUALITY along with being PERFECTLY cut! (okay, if you want to be a snob...99.9% perfect! :bigsmile:) The color saturation is deep and bright and the corners are razor sharp! Of MAJOR significance is the absolutely PERFECT CENTERING & REGISTRATION ALONG THE SPINE! It is extremely RARE even in the 9.8 grade to find a copy in this immaculate condition, which makes the Professor Pecora Copy of Incredible Hulk #181 one of the finest and most valuable copies in the world!

     

    I purchased this PRISTINE GEM in March of 2017 from the same auction house where the single CGC 9.9 MINT copy last exchanged hands—Comic Link! I had to bid very aggressively in the final seconds of the auction to secure it, along with auctioning off the majority of my CGC 9.8 Bronze Age Marvel Key Collection in the Pedigree Comic’s April 2017 Grand Auction to pay for it, but at the end of the day...it was all WORTH IT!

     

    In closing, I would like to thank Mr. Doug Schmell of Pedigree Comics for helping me to acquire this MEGA Bronze Age Key!

    Im a huge baseball fan, and I love Wil Eisner's cover here for Baseball Comics #1 (of 1) depicting the Badgers vs Iron City Nine. From 1949, the book represents one of Will's attempts to break out of news paper publishing with The Spirit, that unfortunately did not lead to an issue #2 or more.

    Picked this one up from Pedigree Comics. A nice cover and story - Within You... Without You. There are still several Warren magazines that I'm looking for, notably some with Frazetta covers that are very hard to find - Creepy 16, Eerie 7 and 81. Well, sooner or later they should turn up on the market. Enjoy.

  8. Last October on the way back from a mini vacation in Kentucky I stopped in four Cincinnati area comic shops. I'd been in two of the four before. One of them Up, Up and Away Comics said they had opened a new shop in the suburb of Blue Ash . It was on the way home and just off the interstate so I pulled off and proceeded to a really nice plaza. I saw the sign and walked in the door.

    To my surprise it looked like I walked into an upscale store of some kind.  A young lady walked up to me and asked if I need help and I said "Is this Up Up and Away Comics? I thought I went in the wrong door outside. She said it was and I said I have never saw a shop look like this one.  She explained that it was a former design center that went out of business.  So instead of the landlord remodeling the owner said why change something that looks so nice.  The Silver age comics were in a small well lit glass room near the center of the store. Very upscale.

    One feature which was unusual was a huge Lego bridge which was a scale version of an old bridge over the Ohio river. I have attached a picture of it and the main hallway of the shop.

    Not your average shop.

    My wife recently got on me to do something about something that happened back when I was 13 years old, I am know 55.

    I know that nothing can be done about it, But I will pass on the story that only a few friends and family know.

    I will start with some of my background, I started collecting Marvel comics back in the early 70's  I of corse sold that collection back in the 90's.(Bad mistake)

    I restarted collecting in 2000. I went on to work  as a layout designer for the HASBRO Toy co. Starting in 1984  worked on Transformers G.I. Joe ...

    Instruction layout & line art ... I will get to the story, as most 13 year olds that are big Marvel fans I was a member of "FOOM".

    I would send drawings of super heros that I created, the first time I sent one in my brother in-law took it and had a copy made and I sent the copy.

    The second time I did not make a copy . It was not like today as you can make a copy at home. You had to take it to work or to a copy store.

    About 6 months after sending it in I received FOOM #12 and there on page #28 was my Super hero ... The Name was the same his helmet and chest design

    Was the same. They had dropped the cape, shield and changed his boots but it was my hero. I sent a letter asking about my hero but even at 13 I knew 

    I would never get a response. I recently picked up a copy of FOOM #13  and showed it to my wife, she knew the story.

    I know it was Marv Wolfman and John Buscema ... That "created" him and of course both worked on Foom magazine at that time.

    But all I can do is tell the story, You can choose to believe it or not.  The Super hero is NOVA.

     

     

  10. Ya know, I should have entered this set into the registry back in 2013.  There's a few pedigrees, some keys... it was a nice set.    The Ghost Rider and Spider-man sets were just starting up but the Transformer and X-men sets were filling in nicely.  Ah well no point in doing it now as these are gonna hit the forum market and then whatever is left will head off to the auction houses.

    At the bottom of the list I added thumbnails, only because I thought it looked kinda cool.  I'll be uploading the real scans this weekend as time permits, likely the actual listings will begin next Friday.  Prices will be close to GPA, give or take a bit, but time payments are available so that's an extra incentive.

    On February 10, 1974 Amazing Spider-Man #129 was released, and so was the first appearance of Frank Castle--The Punisher, coincidentally this was also the first comic I would pick off a spinner rack at the local corner store, and purchase. And So began my hobby of collecting comics.

    Here we are 43 years later, and I still have this special issue today.. It has been through a lot, and shows, although I have an upgraded copy of this issue the value of this one is priceless in memories for me. Happy Birthday Frank ...

    So I have posted before about my love for Invincible and no not Iron Man. This is about the only comic book that I have been able to read through a few times and still enjoy. And while Kirkman and company deciding to end it at 144 I have made it a personal goal of grabbing up every single issue including 2nd prints and variants. And now with only about 12 issues left in the series I am almost to my goal. I only lack 6 issues to complete the series thus far minus the extras. It's a great feeling actually being able to handle and hold the issues I once thought I would never see. Last time I was this excited I had 1 issue left to completed a full run minus Variants of ASM 200-700. Which I had to sell (financial issues came about). The only thing that will be left to do is start sending these books off to be graded and hoping my eyes are as good as I think and not have anything less than a 9.6. But I like to think being able to say I own every single issue of an amazing series will be worth it and the grades I get back on them not being as important. We shall see. Thanks for reading.
