  1. I've asked this on the general and GA forums, with no response. I have a book with a Speed Comics 14 cover and a Pocket Comics 2 interior. It's not a married cover, it's a manufacturing defect, I'm 100% certain. How common is this, particularly with GA books? How exactly does it happen? I was tempted to return the book, but I think it may be unique and that I'd be wise to keep it.
  2. Does it happen as the books are being printed? Is it more common in GA or SA books? I just got a book with a Speed Comics 14 cover, and a Pocket Comics 2 interior. I've confirmed it's not a married cover, it was created that way. I asked about this on the GA board and got no replies. Thx.
  3. Just got this book from the last weekend Heritage auction. It was simply described as a Speed 14. The interior is actually Pocket 2. It's not a married cover, it's clearly a printing defect. I'm considering whether to return the book, or consider it a bargain. Thoughts?
  4. Named and depicted appeared in November 1974 Marvels, prior to Hulk 181 being published? I'm looking at Daredevil 115, which contains the ad. I have every Marvel book from that month, and can determine how many of the issues have the ad if it's potentially of any significance. Thoughts?
  5. Every time I say that about any GA book I'm proven wrong. What GA books have ever really depreciated? Some (funny animal, western, for example) are out vogue for years, then they inevitably go up. GA books are of limited supply, and aren't getting any younger. They'll all inexorably go up in price/value.
  6. I've struck out on everything, still a couple of bids left to go. Results on some of these books are astonishing IMO. Can't stop thinking about that Blue Bolt 115 7.0 @ $3511. I'd guess on average Cole books have tripled in the last year or so.
  7. Seriously, what has caused L.B Cole books to go nuclear? A 7.0 Blue Bolt 115 just went for $3611 on CC? Glad I bought my 3.0 for a hundred bucks a few years ago.
  8. Tried for a dozen Centaurs so far, and I've pulled back a nub. Bidding on these is extremely strong IMO.
  9. How much do they add to the value of a book, really? I have a Spook 22 with an L.B. Cole auto, and a Silver Streak 11 with artist Don Rico's auto. Those guys are long deceased, so they aren't signing anything else. The autographs are to the interiors of the books. How much do they enhance value? I'd guess roughly double what they'd otherwise fetch?
  10. I will be bidding on a number of these books, no doubt.
  11. Won two books I've wanted forever, and lost out on multiple times, Science Comics #4 and USA #6.
  12. Yeah, I have that one saved in my Ebay. Man, 12 large is steep. But I know I won't find a 36 or 37 being given away either.
  13. Would love to find complete restored copies. Any serious responses welcomed.
  14. Can a complete (restored) copy still be had for $30K? There is a 4.5 A-5 on the 'Bay with a BIN of $39,000.
  15. I've always viewed it that way, mainly because the GA sandman character just doesn't resonate today. Still, I've always wanted a copy of the book, and thought I'd finally post a WTB notice on the buyer forum. I could see the Spectre eventually making a big splash in the DC movie universe, or on one of the shows on CW. The guy with the suit, tie, hat and gas mask? No. But hey, I love the character myself.
