  1. My only issue with Eerie is it is the first but was it the influence of this book that led to the horror comic genre or another book? Being the first doesn't necessarily mean it's the influence on the others, but just the first to print. And wasn't it a couple years before Avon returned to Eerie? Sales couldn't have been out of this world if their first foray didn't pan out immediately...at least Young Romance was a long-running title...
  2. The more I think about it, the more I think Diary Secrets combined with Teen-Age Diary Secrets and Blue Ribbon and the nn issue is the hardest Baker St. John run to complete. Any thoughts on what the ranking of runs would be?
  3. It just occurred to me that there is an argument for Classic Comics 1. Reprinted for decades and being a gateway to comics for so many people. Continuously published throughout the introduction of the comics code and generally accepted as appropriate reading material even when other comics were not. Not the most valuable either, but that's because they were so ubiquitous. The influence is there and they are largely different from trendier comics coming out at the same times...I pick number 1 because it's the first. Is there any particular issue that was reprinted more?
  4. The human torch is awesome in it's own right! No way I'd mess with that back cover!
  5. Pep 22, Crime Does Not Pay 22, and probably whatever EC horror book is most responsible for their horror runs...vault of horror 12? Or first crypt keeper? I'm not sure myself...but teen humor, huge-selling crime and popular horror seem important to me.
