    Don't know what their plans are, but I imagine some of both.

    Pre-trends are great! Don't have any yet but wouldn't mind 'em. This Crime Patrol #16 was a very satisfying find from BigGuy's Comix when I was building my run. It's a solid reader, but not so beat that it's unattractive.

    And this Unseen #10 was from Jim Payette. :)

    Here's some new things scanned: Astonishing 22, I got from Andy Cretella, about 12 years ago, I think.

    Wonderful Horror from the Tomb! Great cover and great stories inside -- never have managed to get one yet.

    Yes, and the more the merrier! The stories in this ish are pleasantly bizarre.

    What else do you collect??

    While I'm not sure what a "cretian" is, of course I get it. What's not to get? Very nice taste in toys and I love the Marx playsets, but perhaps the best to me are Aurora kits, and thus, the Big Frankie box with builtup. Of course Big Frankie has been recreated and is available for builders again, but a nice original box is a toughie.

    Indeed, that is one I'd pick up, for that story -- the cover great as well! :-)

    Dang! In grade. Nice. Watchout Mr. Illmannered doesn't come after you for this one, if he's not got it in nosebleed grade already! Very sweet copy!

    The Undead Thread: Pre-Code Horror

    I had no doubt it was a '60s composition, even more due to the guy's hairstyle, than the clothes -- it's speculation on my part, but maybe it was a what-if we revive the "Out of the Night" title by ACG? Adventures into the Unknown was still in publication, albeit code-approved at that point in the middle '60s. It's a great cover anyway, would look right at home under a '70s DC House of Mystery or House of Secrets title header as well! :-)

    Great issue Jayman -- don't have this one but would like to correct that one day! :-)

    While I was never (still not to an extent) into the EC war issues, I do love TFT #34, due to first discovering it as an East Coast Comix reprint, back around 1985 or so. I then made it a point to get an original copy a few years later. While not super into the war ECs generally, I don't mind getting them for particularly noteworthy stories or covers -- for me, the Horror, Sci-Fi, Crime and SHOCK are my mainstay EC loves. Plus a little Valor and Piracy.
