Our Fighting Forces #63

This one just came by UPS today. At this moment it is the single highest graded copy and the next closest grade is a 7.5. I bought it from eBay and I even thought the price was good. I have spent so much time on my GI Combat set, the Our Fighting Forces  set (among others) has been neglected. September - October 1961, I'm happy to be able to add this one!

Vampirella 9

Won this in the recent Comic Link auction. Planning to concentrate on Marvels and Warren magazines for 2018. This book has a nice double panel cover with artwork by Wally Wood and Boris Vallejo. Also features interior work by Barry Windsor-Smith. Like the Defenders 5 from my previous journal, I got this book for dirt cheap. Enjoy.

Undead Man Walking--My CGC graded Tomb of Dracula Collection

Tomb of Dracula #1: So in October of 2006 I purchased my first CGC graded comic--Tomb of Dracula #1.. A cover that had been engraved in my earliest memories of childhood, and a series which I could not fully appreciate until I was a teenager. I had decided this was an issue that I would like to own a preserved graded copy of.  Well after receiving this copy, I had decided that I was going to try and complete the series in a grade of 9.2 and higher (high grade for me  )-- It's been a long and fun journey as I'm nearing completion of this set.... Issue #1 (April 1972) - "Dracula" -Written by Gerry Conway, Art by Gene Colan , and Cover by Neal Adams (inked by Marie Severin)

Defenders 5

Picked this one up the other day. Features the origin of the Valkyrie, a character who figured prominently in Thor Ragnarok. Got it for a cheap price too. Not the outrageous sum you'll find for this book on ebay for the same grade. Enjoy.

Winter Reading List

Wow I've really been slacking on my Swamp Thing journey. The good news is I'm still reading ol' Swampy, just started the Moore run this week and let me just say it has been fabulous. Not that I had any doubt in Moore to deliver.  I'll be back over the next couple of days to give a round up of the issues I've read. Meanwhile a pic of my stack of stuff to read over the next couple of months.

Classic Comics Forum Podcast #17: Wonder Woman: Space Pirate

This time around we do something a little different, as I talk to a new reader/collector about her experiences getting into comics more than two decades after being briefly introduced to the hobby as a kid. We also discuss the stories she first read as a kid, particularly the Wonder Woman: Space Pirate storyline from Bill Messner-Loebs in Wonder Woman #66-72.  Here it is. Hope you enjoy!

My First NEW Journal

Well, I can't seem to get the photo to display correctly, even though it shows correct before uploading, but here is my first new journal attempt. I tried to post earlier today, but the post never showed up...weird. Anyway, thank you to dreamtoreal1 for this sharp looking Iron Fist 14. I'm really looking forward to Ronnylama pressing it and then Chris Claremont signing it at ECCC this year. Hoping it comes back at least 9.2 but sometimes you never know. Hope everyone has a great year! Til next time...   ***
