    Best Barks' stories

    I just ordered Four Color 367 from Jim Payette, and am hoping Christmas in Shacktown lives up to the hype. I must confess, in the 70's I just couldn't understand what all the fuss was about a funny animal book, but about 10 years later I got my hands on a copy of Vacation Day Parade and my eyes were opened. I picked up a copy of Uncle Scrooge 7 from an original owner collection, pretty sharp, and thought Seven Cities of Cibola was pretty cool. I sold it to Bill, but miss it enough that the next copy I get will likely be a keeper. GOD BLESS... -jimbo(a friend of jesus)

    What are the rarest romance comics?

    This one is very challenging to find..... and the cover story, very gritty, is handled by Jack Kirby. So far only one in a slab.... but this is the kind of book someone like Robot Man, the box diving machine, might be able to turn up. GOD BLESS... -jimbo(a friend of jesus)

    Son of My 50 Year Junk Obsession

    …… thanks, Bob...…… I LOVE your reports ……… it really does seem like a 70's show..... except that the books are all in bags and boards …… and that carpet really nails it. First pic I've seen of Pablo.... he has a twin in North Carolina. GOD BLESS..... -jimbo(a friend of jesus)

    Torpedo Comics offers an alternative to SDCC

    …..Boardies will have a puzzled look on their face, as they wonder if anyone around them is also a Boardie..... GOD BLESS... -jimbo(a friend of jesus)
  5. It's in the slab, so it won't get any worse..... it still looks basically complete.... I'd leave it be...… unless....I wanted copy I could handle, then restoration would be the responsible thing to do. I might feel differently if it were something other than a Superman 1. GOD BLESS.... -jimbo(a friend of jesus)
