  1. The art was awesome, DC sci from the same time frame was pretty good too. I was surprised to see how much the code affected the stories between WSF and ISF.
  2. Except the stories don’t pack the same punch.
  3. I sold all of my DC’s and started collecting Marvels...
  4. Brave and the Bold #2. I think this is one of the more difficult to find issues of the pre-hero lot (which probably means the whole series). One board member here has a ridiculously nice copy I offered to buy a number of times but kept getting laughed at I ended up with this nice mid grade copy only in the last year. I’m glad I got it because a 7.0 came up a couple of months later and went for almost 3X as much!
  5. There are a number of issues that are harder to find, not all but enough to make it a challenge for a high grade collector.
  6. Owning a B&B 1 has always been a kind of grail to me. I never really thought I would get one. Then around 2008 I put a Hail Mary bid on one in an eBay auction and was pleasantly surprised to win it. I sent in in to be graded to add to the set, it’s a nice looking copy. This was ten raw. It’s a 7.0 OW.
  7. It’s really a shame that Photobucket has left so many threads without scans after years of great posts. I want to restart the Brave and the Bold thread so we can get pictures that will last. While I would love to see everyone’s copies, I’m going to post all of my issues 1-120. I’m closing in on completing the run, I need two more issues to be complete 1-200. Brave and the Bold is a special series for me, It was the first title I ever collected! I started “collecting” them in 1974 by buying new issues as they came out. I was around 12 years old. While I really liked the Batman stories I absolutely fell in love with the Silent Knight and Viking Prince reprints that ran in the 100 pagers. My first pre-hero issue was a beat up copy of number 15 that is still a favorite today. I remember when I got it and loved the BIG logo! I never really set out to get a whole set. All of my copies from childhood were basically reader copies by today’s standards except 120-200 which I bought new. Slowly over the last 10-12 years I started replacing my low grade copies and searching for missing issue (I barely had any of the first 30). So here goes, I’ll post in order 1-120 minus the two I’m missing (you’ll see which ones those are 😂) and add a little color commentary along the way!
  8. I remember thinking how expensive they seemed at the time! I couldn't afford any, but I sure wish I had bought at least one! Very cool, post the books too! On a different note, I just got in the ISF 31 I recently picked up, I was pleasantly surprised to find out it was copy #1. Not that it really means anything, its just kind of cool. In the original article I believe it said Bill was going to keep several copies of each book. I always assumed he kept the first couple? He must of sold off whatever he kept at some point I guess. Anyone know? The ads only show the middle copies as being available to the public.
  9. Anyone know anything about this? I have heard a couple of different stories (Hollywood July 17-19, Las Vegas), Anyone know anything definitive?
  10. These next two pages are from CBM #2 (1991) and they are Russ Cochran's sales ad of GFC books. Oh my....
  11. Okay, I found that answers to my own questions. I have felt very "EC-y" lately, so I went through my old copies of CBM's and found the following. This may have been posted previoulsy, I apologize if it has, I can't say I have read this thread going back to it's beginnings. The following is a reprint from CBM 80 (the whole issue is dedicated to 50 years of EC, great issue!) Says it's from CBM#2, but I have #2 and I couldn't find it. Any ways, this is what I must have been thinking of, reading this story about the opening of the GFC collection:
