    Show Us Your Ducks!

    Welcome aboard DD! Those are all wonderful books to own and read. The good thing about low grade copies is that you can handle them with no concerns. I think you were spot on with your grading. With those two corners off it looks like a G/VG to me.

    AJD's comic notebook

    Just a quick update from my travels. Here in Kyoto they have identified a market segment long neglected in the west - people who want to read comics and sleep in a cylinder.

    AJD's comic notebook

    I had a few minutes before I head off, so let me post another Cheetah book with a locally drawn cover. It's based on the pretty neat splash page: But the local artist has managed to make the figures so stiff that it has turned it into 'Ken and Barbie' ride an elephant... (and is it just me, or does Kaanga's elbow/shoulder seem to be on back to front the way he's holding that tusk?)

    Australian golden (and a few silver) age comics

    A selection of Australian comics from 1938 - February 1966 These are all from my collection. Most of them are reprints of American comics, but there are some Australian originals in here as well. Check out the Crimson Comet by Australian artist John Dixon - one of my favourites. The Silver Flash books have some great covers (and not so great interiors, but you're spared that here) and are well worth checking out. Australia used a British-style money system until February 1966. The prices translate roughly like this: 6d = sixpence = 5c 1/- = one shilling = 10c

    I'll be away for a couple of weeks, and I'll get back to the Cheetah collection on return. Until then, here are a couple of Australian crime reprints to tide you over. For those keeping score, it's blondes 1 v criminals 1 for this round. She seems nice... And this lass is just tired and having a lie down...

    Crime Busters 19 (Australian)

    I'd say so. When I posted this in my journal I imagined a CGC annotation "Bondage cover. John Wayne slapping some dude".
