    MA #17 is an all-time classic! :-)

    No DC expert here, but the first for DC to bear the CCA seal were for those titles: Action 202, Detective 217, Superman 96, and Batman 90.

    It probably varies by publisher -- it'd be interesting to know (by publication date) what was the last precode standing; but many of the last of the precodes had already succumbed to self-censorship (all publishers were feeling the heat.) :-)

    3 others to cross-post -- all of a Fantasy nature!

    And this trio of Fantasies I have scans handy for.

    'PLANET COMICS' (is deserving of its own thread)

    All Planets are terribly cool; I have exactly one.

    Another horrific trio. Vault 18 I got long ago from Redbeard; TFTC 33 was from Showcase New England; TFTC 31 was bought while traveling in Michigan.

    Some other old goodies. Mister Mystery 7 is a long time keeper, as are any and all Haunted Thrills!

    Yep. Congrats Jayman! That is a very tough Voodoo, I never did run across a copy. The sampling of Eerie and Voodoo issues that I have are from many years ago. Attached is my Voodoo #16 Northford (unfortunately moisture staining that some of the Northfords suffer is on the back.) Call it a VG.

    Have a Cigar! Golden Age only....!

    Got this years ago in an antique shop, when I was in 8th grade. Not a single other comic to be found anywhere -- had there been more, I'd have tried to get them I'm sure!

    Love Kirby work on superheroes! But (for me) his horror and romance output always left me flat. Just not doing much for me. But being able to pick them up reasonably is definitely a plus outcome of that type of thing.

    The Undead Thread: Pre-Code Horror

    Beauties. Would love to get a #4 and 5, some day. If those were mine I'd give them each matching fresh new mylars and acid-free Gerber boards! But that's just my finicky-ness talking.

    Can't really confirm beyond my own personal experience, that 17, 18 and 19 are about the same, difficulty-wise. Never was able to pick up a 19 that I liked for the money (so far) but you never know about the future.
