    My latest acquisition from the recent Comic Link auction. This book being from 1966, it's the oldest 9.8 in my collection. Always nice to have books in 9.8 from this era, which I have very few of. It's also nice when they end up at a lower price than expected at the end of the auction. My winning bid here was under $300. Enjoy.

    Just won this on eBay. The last Deadman story in this title. This has always been my favorite Neal Adams run. Awesome covers and stories to boot. Enjoy.

    Adventure Comics 373

    Won this book on eBay today. My first signature series purchase in four years. Continuing with my acquisition of Neal Adams covers. Features the first appearance of the Tornado Twins, Don and Dawn Allen, far future descendants of Barry Allen. Enjoy.

    WW 189

    One more auction win from Comic Link. And, like my win from yesterday, another cover scene depicting war, this one from the Vietnam era. A particularly difficult issue to find from the Diana Prince run. Interesting to see her blasting away with an automatic weapon, instead of wielding the proverbial sword.

    Our Army At War 240

    Won this in the current Comic Link auction. With this book, I now have all four issues with Neal Adams interior art on this title. Surprised to find my winning bid was well under $100. It's back to buying comics again after taking a break during the summer. And this is a good one to start with.
  6. How did Scooby Doo 1 become so hot? Probably due to all the spin-offs and reboots over the years, including the current popular series, Scooby Doo - Guess Who?

    Jerry Lewis 123

    war comics - Not likely. The CGC 6.0 SS on ebay has been sitting there for two years. Which means that nobody is interested and sees no value in it. Now, if it were a 9.0 SS, I'm sure it would have been snatched up very fast. I don't know why more high grade copies turn up slabbed. There are only 6 on the CGC census. I guess I just have to wait for scrape1 to part with his 9.0 copy some day.

    Jerry Lewis 123

    war comics & pemart1966: I won't settle for a low or mid-grade book. Which is all that is available on ebay. On the CGC census, there are only six issues graded, with a single 9.0 as the highest. That book is owned by CGC member scrape1. I've contacted him and asked if he'll sell the book, but he is unwilling to part with it for now. And no, I don't have any Neal Adams SS series books here.

    Jerry Lewis 123

    War Comics - Neal Adams did the artwork in issues 101 -104. I guess those qualify as key issues. The only one I need is 101, which is next to impossible to find.

    Jerry Lewis 123

    My recent auction win from last month. This puts me in a tie for first place in the Jerry Lewis registry set.
  11. This book seems to be getting very hot. A CGC 9.6 ended up with a winning bid of $457 in the Comic Link auction last night. I may have to add it to my want list. A couple of 9.4s on ebay at the moment are going for roughly $275 each. Must admit I love this cover, the women's lib contradiction notwithstanding.

    One More Auction Win

    Torchwood - I wonder also why some books go for such high prices. I guess it depends on how badly the collector wants a certain book, especially if it's tough to find. Still, bidding for books at auction on Comic Link or Heritage sometimes results in very low winning bids compared to what you would pay on ebay for the same book. Perfect example: I won a CGC 9.6 Hot Wheels 3 at Heritage at the beginning of the year for $240. Same book, same CGC grade was listed on ebay at the time for $620.
  13. I need to add the Adventures Of Jerry Lewis 123 to my registry set. Please add it to the registry point totals page. I believe it goes for 250 points. CGC certification # is 1571172009. Slot Created. Thank you
  14. Please add Secret Hearts 133 to the CGC registry set. Certification # is 1059982008. Slot Created. Thank you

    Superman 234

    You're right Brandon. Another great orange Adams cover I need is World's Finest 180.
