    Okay, here is the scan.

    Teen Titans 22

    Just won this in the Comic Link auction. My first 9.6 DC acquisition in quite some time. Neal Adams sharing artwork duties with Nick Cardy. Five more Adams books to go.

    Nice acquisition and meeting The Man

    Picked this one up today at the Niagara Falls Comic Con. An awesome 9.2 that looks more like a 9.4. And on top of that, Neal Adams, the artist of this cover, was there. Chatted him with a bit and bought a reprint book of Deadman stories from Strange Adventures, which he signed. This was my third meeting with him at a show. Also, for the first time, a finally met Jim Steranko here today. Very nice guy. Anyways, enjoy.

    Behold The Mandroids!

    Just won this in the Comic Link auction. Probably the hardest one to find in high grade among the Kree/Skrull war issues, due to the black picture frame cover. Although here we take a detour from that storyline, as our heroes battle the mandroids. Surprised to see that my winning bid was under $250. Six more Adams books to go. Enjoy.

    At Long Last......Creepy 14

    Just bought this one on ebay. Ten years of waiting to acquire this super tough book. Third times the charm I guess. On two previous listings of this book on ebay, over the last two and a half years, I did not have the funds to buy it now. Needless to say, on both occasions they were snatched up very fast. This marks the first work at Warren for Neal Adams. Only 18 of these on the CGC census. And with this acquisition, I have seven more Adams books to go. Enjoy.

    Flash 195

    Just won this book on ebay. Very tough one to find slabbed. One of the better covers by Neal Adams for this title. Enjoy.

    Won this just now in the Comic Link auction. A book that has jumped up in registry points recently - 750, to be exact. Don't know if the character will be appearing again in the movies. I'm just happy to have all those points. I had a CGC 9.4 up until three years ago, then sold it. That one had crm/ow pages, so I've managed an upgrade here. Got it for under $400 too. Enjoy.

    Vampirella 9

    Won this in the recent Comic Link auction. Planning to concentrate on Marvels and Warren magazines for 2018. This book has a nice double panel cover with artwork by Wally Wood and Boris Vallejo. Also features interior work by Barry Windsor-Smith. Like the Defenders 5 from my previous journal, I got this book for dirt cheap. Enjoy.

    Defenders 5

    Picked this one up the other day. Features the origin of the Valkyrie, a character who figured prominently in Thor Ragnarok. Got it for a cheap price too. Not the outrageous sum you'll find for this book on ebay for the same grade. Enjoy.

    Creepy 10-100

    Very nice run here. You even have a slabbed Creepy 14, which has been on my want list for ages.

    Last Buy For 2017

    Picked this one up just now from World Wide Comics. A nice pedigree copy and also an OAK, as this is the only 9.4 slabbed copy. Another lightweight fantasy cover for this title, which was so prevalent with DC at the time. Still, a guilty pleasure nonetheless. This was absolutely my best year for acquisitions. 39 CGC books in all. The breakdown - 19 DC, 16 Marvel, 2 Warren and 2 Amryl. Happy Holidays everyone! Enjoy.

    Captain Marvel 17

    Picked this one up on ebay today. The start of the Mar-Vell/Rick Jones body transferral between Earth and the Negative Zone, by way of the nega-bands. This new situation would eventually lead to the Thanos saga a couple of years later. Now if only I could afford a high grade copy of Marvel Super-Heroes 13, the first appearance of Carol Danvers. Enjoy.

    Frazetta Greatness IV

    Just won this gem on ebay. An interesting take on the Kong story. Seven of them actually, in this issue. Frazetta at his best, as is usual with his Warren covers. Like my recently purchased Eerie 7, this is another super tough one to find. Enjoy.

    Avengers 93

    Picked this up from Comic Connect yesterday. The beginning of the alien war saga courtesy of Roy Thomas and Neal Adams. The most valuable Marvel book featuring Neal's artwork. Would have preferred a higher grade, but one buys what one can afford. Eight more Adams books to go. Enjoy.

    Horror From Neal

    Just won this in the Comic Link auction. A very nice cover by Adams with interior work by him and Berni Wrightson. Amazingly, a 9.6 in the same auction went for $1,300. More than a grand than I paid for this one. This is an upgrade from the 9.0 I have. Also looking to do the same with my 178 and 179. One of the very few with Neal's work interior-wise on this title, I think there was four or five in all. Enjoy.
