AJD's "other" golden age album UpdatedSince I already have a fair chunk of my collection in albums, I thought I'd put up the rest just for fun. My EC, Australian, Dell ducks and war bonds covers all have their own albums. This one is a category I have imaginatively called "other". In it you'll find various things, including a Fiction House collection that almost got its own album, and selected covers by Golden Age greats - L. B. Cole, Wolverton, Schomburg and even a Baker or Two.
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
Dell comics are good comics! UpdatedMy collection of Dell comics. Dell was an incredibly prolific and diverse publisher, so my collection of mostly funny animal and cartoon characters really just scratches the surface. For example, I have none of their many westerns, war or ghost comics, no Tarzan, only a few of the movie and TV tie in books etc.
There are lots of duck books here, including
Four Color Comics : the classic Barks stories were run in the Four Color Series for many years, including the first 20 or so Donald Duck stories (until the Donald Duck series started with #26, which wasn't really the 26th...) and the first three Uncle Scrooge issues.
Walt Disney's Comics and Stories : #1 was published in October 1940 and the final Dell issue was #263 in August 1962. My focus has mainly been on issues 1 - 100, but I'll pick up nice copies of others when I get a chance.
AJD's EC collection UpdatedI've been collecting ECs for over ten years now, and I thought they'd look nice in a gallery. I'm not a horror fan, but you'll find full runs of the war and sci-fi titles here and all of the Mad comics (#1-23) and the first magazine (#24). I also have all of the New Direction books except for Psychoanalysis #1...
