  1. @Sardo Numspar Thanks, just if you have time, no worries.
  2. Josh! Great to see you – how are you? This one is super-cool, is it possible to see a picture of the insides?
  3. Thanks for the heads up, @Readcomix. I’m more interested in the earlier ones, early years of Timeless Topix still eluding me… I’ll post something more when I’m on my Mac.
  4. Agreed. It pretty much coincides with the 1970s, although in many cases I’d go back to 1968 (at least for Marvel) and yes… in some cases 1980 is already "out".
  5. Great Weird Tales and super-nice copies!
  6. With such massive creasing I would not grade it above VG/VG+, depending on how the book, overall, is solid.
  7. I would add that if there is a thing I love about Golden Age (and early comics publications, also from other countries, which fall under different cultural/time classifications) is the variety and richness of themes/approach/ideas within the same book (title). Quality aside, the stories were unrestrained. My favorite titles generally fall into two or three genres at once: – Military/Uncle Sam is classified by the GCD as war / superhero / occult – Zip Comics can be seen as superhero / crime (gangsterism) – Daredevil Comics and Boy Comics have stories falling in superhero / war / crime / horror Same goes for various Timely or MLJ titles which – unfortunately – I can’t afford.
  8. Well, strictly speaking these are not "genres", rather labels one uses to aid classification. If you wish to stick to genres, the list becomes a lot shorter.
  9. Very excited to add this one to my Daredevil Comics small collection… One I had been looking for since the beginning, but never purchased. A few pages from the insides (scans courtesy of the DCM – Digital Comics Museum):
