    You consistently choose really appealing comics.

    Marvel Westerns (Silver Age)

    I never picked up a copy of this one because Kirby did no interior work. Is the cover’s issue number hand- written? Ala Two Gun Kid 60?

    Marvel Westerns (Silver Age)

    I just assembled reading copies, but yep; tough.
  4. Just did 100 silver age, I have 34 of 100. I have owned 91 of them in the past.

    X-Men 1, a risky buy?

    My first instinct is to say no; DC keys are more scarce. That has been what we’ve heard for decades. My personal experience is the same; much harder to track down DC keys, especially in higher grades, even though print runs were higher for DC.

    Thor 167-169: The Origin of Galactus!

    I agree to a point, but he’s been overused. Every Marvel creator wants to tell “their” Galactus story. It’s diminished the character, IMHO.

    Pre- Hero Marvels!!!!

    “It” was a sweetheart; who doesn’t love him?
  8. Nice! That’s just exactly the kind of windmill I would tilt at if time or wife allowed. I joined 1990’s Wild Agents of Marvel. I don’t think I got an equivalent experience.
  9. I have that book, it’s everything you’d hope!

    Show us your books from 1959 !

    This probably has a lot to do with it. I'd be kiilin' this if I hadn't sold my Pre heroes!

    X-Men 1, a risky buy?

    I’m not above the occasional flip. One of the benefits of decades of playing with funnybooks is that eventually even I learned a thing or two. If I see an underpriced gem out in the wild I’ll buy it for resale, even if it’s something for which I have no personal affinity. ( like Baker covers, GGA, moderns, or most PCH). I still consider myself a Fantastic Four purist!

    Pre- Hero Marvels!!!!

    I’d call it inclusive, but the reality is that it’s way better than average!
