  1. What a ballsee story too! I'm not old enough to imagine how this book flew off the shelves because of the different direction - just look at the ho-hum cover of 38... maybe Ditko didn't want to go in this direction so much and Stan was needling him to change his mind that his work slid a bit??? 36, 37 and 38 were a lil sleepy especially when you compare them to any Romita cover... Even though Ditko started the design and feel of ASM this change was needed. This Romita realism look really flushed these characters that Ditko created out! and it all started with this issue...
  2. Children, drugs and akcohol have ruined my life...
  3. That cover is about as strange and esoteric as it gets... Those funky 70's... Dig It!
  4. I accept you bro... I don't know if that has any intrinsic value though, because I accept so much I could easily be a politician. My main goal was to be a Norm at the end of the bar type. I made it and I'm happy. Anyway Cheers to you and welcome to the club!
  5. And I agree with you 250%... I'm not throwing stones. I'm just defining what a PCH Junkie is to me. People want to quote my goofy made up title and I felt I needed to define it. I have a lot of buds in this biz that collect what they want to and they're awesome all the same. Don't take what I'm saying as some type of purist, because it's actually the opposite. Funny as it seems I care too much. lol!
  6. I never meant for "PCH junkie" to be some time of premium status that I was claiming, I see it as the exact opposite really... I did a lot of stuff that wasn't considered the smart money path for the love of it... For example, when I was at many a con I wouldn't go after the Hot SA Marvels that could be flipped for the big win. I was in a dirty old bin flipping through box after box of LG books of Pre-code. I would have stacks and stacks of not the Premium books, but just picking up the GA jewels in hopes to find a solid read. To me a PCH junkie isn't just about the price tags, covers or j
  7. I hope you're right. I 'm a pre-code junkie and would love to see the bump like SA marvels are currently enjoying... I do however find it amusing the upside down airplane of pre-code is a book built out of remainder issue stock.
  8. I totally love the cobra and hyde story in copper ASM by JR2... Congrats!
  9. Pretty soon we'll see bums on street corners with signs that read " Will work for Marvel Comics Drek"...
  10. I just had my 1st Covid shot, so next con (where ever it is) I'm going! There are 2 things that can happen between now and then - One the market will cool? or more likely the prices will set at the high level to a place where an educated person can learn what can be bought without getting burned. I on one hand think there will be a lot of deals! But you never know may of the dealers that I know that do shows didn't like to sell online and that could've changed since Covid. Sad enough I had the best show of my life right before this Covid slop...
  11. It's all in what you want. I like comics even if they weren't worth much, because of the historical aspect, I'm just lucky that they are worth something. That always seems the case for me though, whenever I like something it doesn't take long before it becomes successful. Just for reference - I never liked being poor, so I decided to work hard, become educated and learn to work a dollar at an early age even when I didn't have the support to do so. Back in 1978 when the superman craze was gloating on how much a copy of Action 1 was - as soon as I walked out of the theatre from Superman the mo
  12. You can take a soldier out of the service, but you can't take the service out of the soldier. I'm the trooper on the right. Godspeed brother!
