  1. I have here a fine copy of the scarce and sought after POCKET GUIDE TO CHINA which contains an 11 page mini-comic by Milton Caniff (creator of Steve Canyon and Terry and the Pirates) titled "HOW TO SPOT A JAP". Published by the U.S. Government Printing Office in 1942 for the War and Navy Departments. Story is focused on determining the difference between Japanese and Chinese when experienced in the field of battle. Controversial and ridden with stereotypes. These were intended for use by servicemen/personnel overseas, not for domestic use. 75 pages total. Pages are in excellent condition. Minor wear to spine. No writing, no tears, no loose pages. takes it. No probies or HOSers. Please contact me if purchasing outside the U.S. REDUCED TO $65 postpaid to U.S. address
  2. That is a very high grade for this book. What a copy! Not just an all-time classic (psst... better than BCM50) Bernard Baily cover, but an awesome Wolverton interior story, too!
  3. Yow! Fantastic book! Or should I say Terrific? There will be people here who will remember they had a chance on this book here before acquiring a copy of becomes out of reach.
  4. I always preferred MC 1, still do. I realize Cap 1 is a better financial investment.
  5. Yeah it's a face close up, but it's a damned brilliant face close up! What book did this before Mask 1? Context is important.
  6. He did do a bunch of covers with floating heads (Mask 2, Suspense 10, etc.), but I don't think that applies to Mask 1.
  7. I'm thinking Hollywood or Madison Avenue!
  8. Cole was a brilliant designer and visual marketer. I think that he could have been a very successful career in advertising or the magazine industry.
  9. Wow! Killer set of books! These Star books aren't that difficult to find in VG, but 7.0 and up, very tough, especially with black covers. Your Terror of the Jungle 17 is the best one I've seen. I passed on so many beaters of that issue.
  10. That offer isn't even close to what the book is worth now. Very wise buy!
  11. I think there's room to go on that auction, and I think that this is a book that is going to explode if it hasn't already. I've always thought that it was one of Cole's best, top 5 likely. What's the top census copy? I just zoomed in on the auction photo.... damn! Look at the that copy! White spine, super bright colors, super flat and clean. I have a nice copy, but this one is brilliant.
  12. I'd love to see the Church Suspense 8 since I've never seen one with a really nice spine. Is there a Church Mask #1 also? If not, I thought that I recalled a big pedigree having one.... or maybe I'm just confusing it with Suspense 8.
