  1. Yep. My fave is 40, but honorable mention goes to 44; classic Flessel!

    That ST 67 is crazy nice!

    FF 48 vs Strange Tales 110 both Keys

    To each his own, but I've never really understood you hyper high grade types.

    My honest opinion is that no one can say definitively which book is the objective better pick. I will say that you will almost certainly enjoy owning the comic more if you choose the one you like best. No math involved, just cool factor. Channel your inner 12 year old!

    My copy was low grade , but I think you’re on to something, bc. I had this issue for years before I ever came across any others of the title.

    40Yrs is now 50Yrs!

    This caught my eye. That crease looks like it was intentionally folded to correspond with Green Lantern’s “phase out”!

    Fiction house anyone?

    Impressive! Back when I actually spent decent money on funnybooks, 1-3 were big on my list, but I never found one that I could afford. Got to hold a minty #1 once, tho!
  8. As I understand it, the story in Adventure 40 was conceived and produced first, but the appearance in NYWF 39 was rushed to press and released earlier. I would honestly like to to be told if I’m wrong, especially because I’ve never heard anything about Adventure 40 being a third appearance! FWIW, I like Adv. 40 a whole lot.

    You wouldn’t have Jumbo 1,2, or 3 by any chance?

    I should start rebuying beaters just to keep this thread humming! It’s weird; the Pre Hero Marvel thread was one of the most active not that many years ago. We gave the War guys a real run for their money!

    Good man!
  12. Cool! I love George Tuska. For me, he is THE Iron-Man artist.

    Wow...$4K for FF1 in FR

    Love it, Brave Concorde! My first copy was similar, and my best friend's #1 presents a bit better, but with a vicious spine roll. It's amazing how owning a comic in such humble condition can be so exhilarating!

    Serious collecting. I bought my first comic as a kid in 1974. In 1987 I started buying reading copies for a buck, but in 1988 I paid $75 for Tales To Astonish 27, and straight into degeneracy from there!
