    Collector is an understatement.

  1. 1. The Stan Lee doesn't look like his signature. 2. The Jack Kirby doesn't look anything like his signature. 3. Signing comic books was very different back before Kirby passed away. Other than the Dynamic Forces books ghost-signed by his wife, Kirby rarely signed covers, he never signed in sharpie, and he never signed books that he didn't personally work on. Stan Lee, sure - but not Kirby. 4. A huge number of raw Lee and Kirby sigs on eBay are fake. Several con-artists are regularly churning out fakes. 5. Common sense. If it was authentic, it means someone took a beat-u
  2. So I've been schooled - I was wrong. CGC is not mislabeling them. The third printing G.I.Joe #21's have the symbiote-Spidey head box on the front cover and the Captain America "reach for the stars" ad on the back cover - and a "third printing" mark on the first page. But collectors have been finding a handful of G.I.Joe #21's with the symbiote-Spidey head box, Captain America back cover, and NO "third printing" mark. I don't know what you'd call this - another printing or a variant or something. Since they're not marked as reprints, CGC is simply slabbing them as-is. I suppos
  3. Ugh. Yeah - another third print that CGC mislabeled. Unfortunately, CGC seems to miss these regularly - here's another mislabeled third print that sold on eBay-
  4. Actually, now that I think about it, Xenosmilus, I think you might be right if you count Stan Lee's last comic book writing credit that he did as a regular monthly comic book as a full-time Marvel writer/editor - and not as a limited series or back-up story.
  5. Catman's right - I think your googling is off. Post that date just off the top of my head, I can think of Stan Lee's 80's Silver Surfer stories, Ravage 2099, the Stan Lee just imagines for DC. I could be wrong, but from my googling-
  6. All of my books signed on the interior got blue labels. Sometimes they identify the sig on the label - sometimes they don't. Here's one where they say who signed it. The grader's notes say: "celebrity name bottom of page(s) 1". But here's one - same sig on a different book - but doesn't say who signed it. The grader's notes say: "Name written on 1st page in pen". I've been told whether or not the blue label identifies the sig depends on if the grader can easily identify whose signature it is, but I don't think CGC has ever officially said.
  7. In Norway, they were published as "Tommy og Tigern" - color reprints of the strips, along with scattered other comic strips. The one I have from 2007 is comic book sized. Even though it's only in mid-grade shape, I've thought about submitting it to CGC just because it's so odd.
  8. Not Stan Lee. Those are Gerry Conway.

  10. Whoa. The logos on the Cobra Officer and HISS Driver are perfect. Nice.
  11. Bought an IH181 CGC from Kobra65. Received it today - quickly and very safely packaged. Thank you, David!
  12. I dunno - the sig kinda looks like the Bernie Wrightson books I have. Looping B with the bold vertical line in his last name. There can't be that many people faking Bernie Wrightson inside books. I lean possibly real.
  13. I bought a graded book from Adam in the last VCC. He shipped it promptly, very safely packaged. Recommended!
