    Pre- Hero Marvels!!!!

    C'mon Dave, once you got 28-34, 1-26 aren't anything special ... Let me know what you need from AA/AAF - I got multiples of almost every issue and need to free up some box space. Embrace the vortex! -bc

  3. The 9.9 link is incorrect- takes me to the 10.0 page instead.

    Anybody happen to see what the Amazing Adventures 1 CGC 9.0 from the Second City Collection go for on ComicConnect this past Monday night? Forgot to bookmark it and not sure how to lookup old auction sales on CC. -bc

    Hey gang, Dang postman rang and he brang me a Krang - bang! Thanks to RICK STARR for parting with this! -bc
  6. I remember the original pics in that thread - simply jaw dropping Wished I would have saved them purely from the historical perspective. Each time he posted something new was almost unbelievably overwhelming (almost every pic was a massive group shot of piles of high grade Golden Age books, pulps or novels). I really hope he is doing okay as he freely shared tons of pristine material that I had never seen before from so many genres, artists, publishers & authors. -bc
  7. Since the SA Avengers roster included about half the MCU at the time: Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Ant-Man/Giant-Man/Yellow Jacket, Wasp, Vision, Captain America, Hawkeye, Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, Vision, Swordsman, Hercules, Black Panther & Black Knight. That would seem to be an easy pick. Add Fantastic Four (which also introduced and featured a slew of characters like the Silver Surfer, Black Panther, HIM/Warlock. the Inhumans and others) and the X-Men & Spider-Man to round out 4. Then for me it would have to be Dr. Strange (SA Daredevil just doesn't do it for me.) -bc
  8. "Ash can" is an old term that used to be associated with a fairly raw comic being produced to secure the title or character - sort of a legal thing like a trademark. Several examples are posted here: http://www.recalledcomics.com/GoldenAgeAshcans.php Now it seems that the term is much more loosely applied to indicating more of a variant or limited edition. -bc

    Not sure anyone said this yet, but welcome aboard! This should be a fun hobby, not a formal investment product that you are planning on contributing to your retirement portfolio. If you got money that you could throw away, then a 60's/70's key with a well placed and applicable signature is likely the closest to an investment you can make in this hobby. I'm personally not a signature guy and wouldn't pay a premium for it. Original Art is also an option depending on the format of the media you prefer. As always- just collect what you like! -bc
  10. Very impressive Atlas catalog!!!! If you could bring either of the Yellow Claw #2's you have listed, I'm looking to pick one up to complete my run.
  11. Think Wolverine would be considered part of the MCU and is definitely part of comic fandom. Since I've been watching this dumb series on TV, I vote that it is the Rifleman, Lucas McCain. He killed at least one person in every one of the 168 TV episodes (and no one ever really seemed to care about it by the end of the show). Westerns seem to always end with a wagon full of dead bodies, think that is a bit worse than brain trauma or some busted bones. -bc
