Eerie 77

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.

The Taj Mahal of Comic Shops

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 as

Now to add some Romance

Snagged this book from Billy. It wasn't quite the iconic Gga I was looking for, but when someone posts. WINDY city per book for a couple of bills you type take it fast and think about it later."A. Wallace" in small print up near the title, and a bit of a miscut, but it all adds to the charm. And she does have that come hither look in her eyes....

A first Confession

Ok this lady is rough, subscription crease (ok not really a subscription crease, since this was probably not a subscription order, more likely a "fold it in half so no one sees the cover and shove it in my back pocket" crease) along with a ring "stain" (color loss, we'll see about water damage), and a rough spine... but Intimite Confessions #1 is one of those "Bombshell" bad girl covers, that you just cant hate, no matter the condition... Red dresss, blonde hair, stole, plunging neck line, this

A very Human Torchy

Just a classic GGA cover in my book, Torchy 4. There are quite a few great Torchy covers (really there are no losers in the 6 issue run). #4 though is the swimsuit edition, with the periscope gag (how do all those subs fit in that space!?!?!).  The old piece of tape that is holding the tear in place on the bottom edge is actually on the back of the cover (with the adhesive making the discoloring thru the cover material). And some cheeky kid decided to draw on the first page in the margin to

My Favorite Wings episode

Wings 61.  Not the mintiest of copies, but I'll always pay $40 for a favorite cover as long as the cover image presents well. I love the deep colors in this copy. The blacks and dark browns drip. I love the Lee Elias cover with the two gunners back to back with each other, and the frame of the plan around them.  The gunners with their oxygen masks so they can work in the open fuselage at higher altitudes. Just great details.

First horror, then romance, and now war!

A few years back Sharonville sold a copy of this book on the boards and I fell in love withheld perspective of the cover shot, and the fact t thatched book was pre-assembled involvement in WWII (1940). So here we go another genre, another deviation from my "focus" Sky Blazers #2!

Believe it or don't

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

Green Lantern 89

A nice acquisition from ebay. This issue brought an end to the legendary run by Neal Adams regarding social comment that began with GL/GA 76. I'm trying now to pick up the other issues I need in this set. Have to do some serious saving if I want to buy a 9.0 or higher grade 76 one day. Actually, the stories continued briefly as back ups in Flash 217-219. Alas, then it would end for good. Enjoy.

the end is the beginning is the end is the...

OK so this is my first activity on this forum in over 3 years.   Who the heck am I?   Why'd I fall of the forums?   Why am I back out of nowhere with 200 slabs to sell?  Long story short on the slabs... They are all my personal collection that I picked up some years back.  I bought all of them already slabbed, none of them are my own submissions.  So I have no idea if any of them have ever been pressed, but judging by the prevalence of pressing, its likely some have.   I truly do not want to par

What Is...The Power?

Bought this one from Worldwide Comics just recently. The first work by Neal Adams at Marvel and likewise collaboration with Roy Thomas. A great cover to kick start his X-Men run, albeit a run too brief. Enjoy.
