  1. Just saw it and thought it was great. That said I’m a pretty big ShymalanaFan. I think most of his work is pretty brilliant. Glass is not perfect but I loved it. Took a bit of time to mull over some parts but it all makes sense.... Nice to see these characters again on the big screen. Gotta go with the Goobers over the Snow Caps as well! 🙂

    Nice one! Love the title logo with the ghost looking over the SP. and those gravestones....

    Bought my first collection: merry Christmas to me!

    Looks like this copy was actually read by a werewolf. Well loved copy.

    The Undead Thread: Pre-Code Horror

    Congrats on completing this run. Some of the best Precode horror stories are present in this title. Many Precode horrorheads say there’s not a bad issue in the whole run. Having read through them all, I agree. What’s your next title to complete?

    Fantastic Four Collecting Thread!

    Amazing looking books everyone. Jimbo, I think I saw this copy in a photo in The Leaders Con report.. Glad to see you grabbed it. Such a great far out SciFi story in this one as well! The FF always has that cosmic edge compared to the other titles. I also believe the splash from this issue is the art used to create the Third Eye black light poster. Anyone on here have the poster?
  9. The letter and story are as collectible as the comics. Thanks for sharing. I always enjoy the Leaders Con reports. It’s been awhile since I’ve seen Gene at a show and I’ve yet to meet Jimbo in person.

    Three years of purchases piled up

    Awesome thread! Thanks for sharing and taking us along for the ride. I love getting comics in the mail. I often joke that I should just mail old comics I already own to myself to save money on buying books. My wife thought it was a good idea. That Famous Funnies is a gem. Great books and welcome back! 🙂

    It’s a nice little run to put together without too much trouble. I remember having all three at one point and then selling off the number one. It didn’t feel right having issues two and three only, so I was able to pick up another copy of issue one here on the boards. Now the trilogy is back together and it’s hats on the ice. 🙂 Congrats. Love that date stamp as well.

    Red Sonja Fan Club

    Just finished reading through this short series of Marvel Feature and the fifteen issues. Not bad. Started strong and then thinned out. I enjoy the offbeat storylines that often happen as titles begin to wind down. I wasn’t too familiar with Frank Thornes work. Some creative drawings and layouts in there.
  14. Nice books. That Haunt Of Fear has a killer Ingels story and that Contact cover is a beauty. GLWTS

    Fantastic Four Collecting Thread!

    Agreed on the brown covers (gray ones too #13). #50 is king of the brown covers though with that awesome green accent in the top left box. #11 is a choice issue as well with two stories inside. Always love visiting this thread. Great books. Thanks for sharing!

  20. Not to add to the speculation but I can offer the opinion from a professional illustrator/passionate collector myself. The two habits are different but there is a lot connecting them. Creating art and collecting it. Reference files are important and in the pre computer days many of my illustration teachers, and some went back to careers in the fifties, had reference files. Many had multiple file cabinets loaded with clippings. In fact there’s a saying among illustrators that goes “you’re only as good as your reference”. This was said to instill in young artists a sense of drawing from life and learning from the world around you instead of just “winging it”..... Essentially: good reference = good preparation = good picture making. The life of a professional illustrator/artist/author is busy (it’s not a job that you click in and out of 9-5) and then adding family obligations into it...there’s not too much time for recreational things. I manage to read a fair share here and there in stolen moments and have been lucky to find some time but a lot of the time the comics sit there....and that’s cool. Sometimes the collector is happy to know they are just there. Perhaps Edgar was going to read down that stack and get to them all “one day”....or perhaps they were all purchased at once or multiple lots and he never really got around to reading them....or maybe he bought two copies..one to store for his “archives” and one to read and then maybe give away...? We do know there were items already discarded before Chuck got there.....who knows what those were...reader copies of his favorites? I guess we will never know but it sure is fun to talk about it.
  21. Hi Gang! I have some overstock of comics I have written and illustrated as well as some cool related comic merchandise and original art. Some of it is cute. Some of it is monsters and most of it is in between somewhere. Here is a chance to buy some items directly form the artist and creator. I appreciate all the support this community has shown my work over the years. This place is very special to me and I consider myself a passionate collector like many of you here. There is so much to love about the medium of comics. -First to post the wins whether in the thread or in PM -No hall of shamers or naughty list people. -Prices include shipping in North America.
