  1. Not what you're actually asking for, but with the thread title I was unable to resist posting this. (Good luck with your search.)
  2. Didn’t paperkutz (sp?) do some Tales from the Crypt a few years ago?
  3. I would call you a hoarder but I can't argue that it's a brilliant speculative investment. I'll just be happy I managed to find one copy before you got the rest!
  4. I may have shown this before but for whatever reason I feel like posting it now. If it’s a repeat I apologize:
  5. The Return of Captain Future is one of the top demand pulp covers these days. My mind boggles at what that would go for if it was on a comic rather than a pulp...
  6. About sums up my reaction to the books; I've never read them and don't really want to based on what I've heard about them. Nice copies, though! The quote I've always liked: “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs." The one and only Ayn Rand book I own or am ever likely to own:
  7. In today. Not sure why Amazing Stories have been crossing my path so much recently, but you get what you can find sometimes. This gives me all 5 of the John Carter stories published in Amazing Stories in 1941, although the others are in the original issues, not the repackaged quarterly:
  8. In today. May go out of my mind trying to track down the first issue, though:
  9. I'm guessing the 1965 banner was to make it look like a new book to people who went to the Fair in 1965; maybe they figured there was a chance to get somebody to buy it twice thinking there was at least some new material. Again, just guessing here: They did the 1st print at 25c, it sold well enough that they decided to bump the price for the 2nd version. That didn't sell as well, so when they went to a 3rd printing for the second year they added the new banner as well as dropping the price back down. It's also possible they printed the covers at different times from the insides, do we have hard info on the printings or is it purely speculative after the fact?
  10. I can't argue with any of the suggestions so far, other than to note I think the 1st Rocket is probably more in demand than the 1st Starlord. I think Pussycat and Shock Illustrated 3 are probably the grail magazines for a lot of collectors. I wouldn't count it as such, but I think an argument could be made the first few issues of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are closer to comic magazines than standard comics. And if you feel they're magazines the first issue would be super high on the list.
  11. And I wouldn't have posted it if it wasn't on the request list on page one of the thread. With no clear faces I've never been able to guess who might have drawn it.
  12. Authentic Police Cases 26 and 35. I've never been sure if the 26 is actually Baker; but I'm not sure there's much reason to think it isn't, either.
  13. A couple books found in the wild today. The Adam Link story should be interesting, at least:
