  1. I’m not sold on Action #1 remaining this far ahead of Tec #27 forever.
  2. One of the good things that the parting out of single-pages has done for our hobby is it has increased the desirability and rarity of complete, and even mostly-complete books. Lets face it, if GA books were as plentiful as BA books, they wouldn’t be nearly as cool or enjoyable to own. Rarity drives desirability in a very big way.
  3. That Zatara splash has to be the most desirable page in the book outside of Superman and the centerfold. Great pickup!
  4. Hi guys, As I was reading a reprint of Whiz Comics #2 (#1) this evening, I was wondering if anyone might know what the symbols and letters mean throughout the Captain Marvel story? Can anyone translate them? Does anyone know what the inspiration was? The first image below looks like the Star of David. That meshes well with the “Wisdom of Solomon” component of the name Shazam, although as far as I know, C.C. Beck and Bill Parker were two of the few early GA creators who were not Jewish. Mac Raboy was, but he didn’t come along until later. I do not know if the symbols from within the train have any meaning. The letters on the throne of the Wizard Shazam appear to be Arabic, with the top line possibly reading “Shazam”? I’d love to get other people’s thoughts.
  5. Hi guys, I spend most of my time on the boards in the GA section, so I couldn’t tell you if my observations here apply to other sections as well. It seems to me as though the GA boards are a lot less active than they were 10 years ago, 5 years ago, etc. Not only that, but the overall level of enthusiasm also appears lower than it was in past years. Not negativity so much as a lack of overall excitement. I realize this is impossible to quantify, just an observation. Does anyone else feel the same way? Any theories as to why? Any ideas as to what we could all do to change it? I really enjoy my time on the boards regardless. But it would be fun bring “the good old days” back.
  6. How long until we see a higher graded copy of Tec #27 come to auction?
  7. Tough to say. If given the choice between these 3 books, how are you ranking them?
  8. When was the last time we saw a book with greater FMV come to auction?
  9. That really was a great looking 1.5. I suspect that $79,000+ will become $100,000+ sometime within the next 2 years.
  10. I’ve been off the boards for a bit recently. When did you come back? Good to have you back!
  11. If you get a free moment, I’d love to see your 2020 estimations for blue label 1.0 FMVs.
