  1. I have been collecting the Brave and the Bold since 1974. It's been one of my major collecting goals to have 1 hrough 24 complete, the pre-hero issues. I just love the characters, stories, and art from those issues. With the addition of #12 that goal is now complete! I'm now one issue away from a complete 1-200 of B&B...sadly it is #28 and the right copy just hasn't come along yet.

  2. 1965. I was attending the fourth grade at the newly-built Cape View Elementary School in Cape Canaveral, and that fall Spider-Man #32 came out. Not only did it continue the latest eagerly-awaited installment of the awesome Master Planner story, but the mystery of the mailing tube - which had been teased in prior Bullpen Pages - had finally been solved. A six foot poster of Spider-Man by Ditko! Wow! After haggling with my mom for a couple of weeks I procured the $1.99 (or whatever it was) and sent away for the poster. A couple months later I was the proud owner of a beautiful 6-foot

  4. Finished my last shops/dealers I buy from in the winter. Interesting viewpoints I got on the market the last month. Many dealers have run out of what they call good inventory. (I disagree because I still bought tons from them, but I digress.) They explained to me that Covid money as wiped them out of key books and they are struggling to find books to replace them. I heard this at 4 different shops or dealers over the past month. The rest either wouldn't tell me or the owner wasn't there at the time or didn't care to talk to me. Some are purposely overpricing some books in an eff

    Stolen Books Alert!!

    Hi Daniel, I was just made aware of this thread. Sunday night on Valentines Day, so do not know if you will see this, but someone will be reaching out to you Monday AM first thing to get this resolved. The good news is the books in the auction are safe and sound. -Douglas Gillock, ComicLink

  7. SOLD! This is an unequivocal I'll take it in the thread. A "I'll take it" pending back cover is common but it is "pendng" even when it is implied and not stated. You do not say you are wanting to see the back cover unless you are leaving yourself a way to back out. All PM negotiations are canceled. I know there are some disappointed people but my rules are clear.

  11. There are many people who I think deserve recognition on this board, but you don't have to scour the ranks of banned members to find them. Nik was a hero, he did so much for the board, between his grading contests, standing up to the bad guys, his wit and something else people might not even know, because he didn't brag. He reached out to new people to help them find their way here. I know about that, because he helped me. . LarryW7, is a hero. He's been a member since the beginning and if you remember, Larry had a heart transplant about 7 years ago. He was not well before that, but

  15. Ok.... I know everyone is dying to know what my cameo in WV is...... When I watched the show thru I NEVER even saw myself hahaha But I went back thru and found some screen shots. Pics 1: I'm wearing the Jughead hat and juggling behind the girl. (When they set the shot up they put me all the way in the back so I knew I probably wouldn't even be in the shot) Pic 2: That's my head getting out of the car right in the middle... with Visions arm in the foreground. I believe Vision is about to blast me for being such a bad actor. Pic 3: Here's the money shot. Look at t

    I am 50 years old....

    At 71 ,I think I might be the oldest member on this thread .When I was your age I told myself that when I hit 65 I would start an exit plan but here I am 6 years later with just about the same number of artworks that I had at 50 . Why ? Because as I got older I found fewer and fewer things that interested me or got me as excited.I love comics but today's comics seems to be a wasteland .Loved music but many of the musicians and bands that I liked have either broken up or died and nobody sells CDs anymore (I have yet to learn how to download music.).Books ? Try and find a good book store . Dinin

    Once upon a time I would have had hundreds of books for this, but reality sucks sometimes. I have hung onto some titles that are rare, high grade, special, and generally low value because I expect I would sell them at a loss and prefer to just keep them. THis is one. 79 year old, white page, blindlingly white cover (it's inked), and it looks like it was just printed. I think I have almost all of my Large Feature books still.

  21. Shipping is included in the US. Paypal, check/MO for payment 7-day return on raws. No return on slabs No members of bad lists This one is a bit hard to price. I would call this a 4.5, but qualified. It is missing the centerfold. Classic LB Cole cover, probably the most desirable of the run. The colors and great and it has good gloss. I took pictures in natural light. I also angled one of the photos to reduce the glare to get a better view of the colors. This would benefit from a press, if that is your thing. The picture with the glare shows you some of the non-color breaking wrinkle

  25. This is the part which is unacceptable and the fact that you find it funny is alarming. Not a good way to comport yourself or portray yourself business wise. I realise that you likely do not care about my two cents here. Perhaps step back and ponder the optics here about what you are saying to people you desire to do business with. You are getting steamed here. I get that. remain level headed and think about what you are saying. It doesn't look good and, frankly, is damaging.

  31. This is my Dad's story. He has advanced dementia now so his story is lost to him. Growing up he didn't have a great home life so I think he escaped into comics,cowboy books of the 50s and so forth. In 1962 he was 17. There was a young girl he quite liked who worked in a newsagents where he would buy his comics, so he would go in there quite often. There was one comic in there he said that looked different to all those he'd seen before. It was hung on a peg and piece of string above the counter. Eventually he bought it. AF15 was the start of his collection and a fascination with com

  36. There seems to be such an easy solution to resolve this....but apparently we're going to do this the hard way. @Top City Comics seriously, if you care about your reputation on the Boards, you really need to drop the "bro" smack talk, the profanity, the sarcastic , the lectures on 'professionalism' while simultaneously engaging in blatantly unprofessional discourse, the all-caps screaming. Regardless of how upset or "wronged" you think you are, this isn't helping your case.... at all. @Polonsky in terms of PL I don't think there's a need to belabor this back-and-forth posting of PMs.

    Great thread idea! I’m cheating here but actually have a few others I consider keepers so here is a majority. Some of these I have I had for almost a decade now which is as long as I’ve collected Gold. Some are simply too hard to replace either do to rarity or the current market pricing. I have had some rather grand offers on some of these and turned them down. The Our Flag is probably the book at the top of the keeper list. Mystery Men 30 and AA61 closely behind. I would like a second copy of AA61 but prices are to the moon right now.

    I consider all of my personal collection books to be keepers. Even though some of them are a bit scruffy, it was hard enough to find some of these then to wait for a great copy, even when they were cheaper a number of years back. I had to get the ones I wanted, and nowadays I would rather add a comic I don't have in my collection than to chase after a great copy (and spend a small fortune)...bird in the hand sort of thing, I guess. These are some of my personal favorites.
