    It will be 25 years ago a week from tomorrow that Don Heck passed away! How time flies. Remembering Heck with what I consider his greatest Atomic Age of Comics cover.

    Such a beautiful copy with great rich greens on the cover. It seems like a lot of copies of Horrific 3 ended up with brownish, copper toning on the cover due to aging. Thank you for sharing :applause:

    This is the longest I've gone in a while without making a purchase (~57 days), so I guess my discipline is working a bit. This book made me cave though.

    What a sharp looking copy! I would've caved for this copy too. Congratulations!

    I think it's appropriate to promote one's new publication here (if not, the Mods can move it).  The new Bookery Guide to Pulps has just been released (first one in 15 years!).  This is published by Ivy Press and can be ordered through Heritage Auctions here (https://www.ha.com/information/bookery-guide-to-pulps-related-magazines.s?type=surl-bookery).  Heritage did a great job on the look and internal design, much improved over previous editions.  I also made some improvements to the layout of the listings, which should make it easier to locate specific issues, and there are new paragraphs describing most of the pulp titles.  This is the culmination of about 30 years of work, so for better or worse, it's here (finally).

    Congratulations! Thank you so much for all of your hard work & research. It looks fantastic & I can't wait to purchase a copy.

    Got back my first direct submission to CGC (still not word on the other submissions I did through a LCS last June). Very close in what I was expecting the grades to be, but a little disappointed in the True Love Problems grade as it seems I missed a very tiny split in the top spine they found which knocked it down. The Airboy would have been nice to be tied for highest grade, but with the chipping on the right it was more of a dream-gamble (but still happy with it as it was just for my personal collection, as this is my favourite Heap issue & cover). Love the colours on both of them.

    Great books! I'm especially fond of the Airboy. Gotta love The Heap!

    I'm still waiting on a response on when I can receive my payment from the last Event Auction. I was going to consign more books. But since CC hasn't pay me yet and the new site is not working properly. I'll hold off or consign to CL. Did everyone get their payment from the last Event Auction in December?  

    Did you ever get paid from the ComicConnect event auction?
