  1. ...there will be something, probably not 15 pages though. GOD BLESS.... -jimbo(a friend of jesus)
  2. ....... such a neat book...and yes, it's available. GOD BLESS.... -jimbo(a friend of jesus)
  3. I'm particularly fond of this one ..... Colletta never did a "bad" one, but some are just exceptional in their execution. The OA for a Colletta Atlas cover would be so cool to have. People in the SA Forum denigrate him as a hack, but I personally loved his inks on Thor.... and when we go further back to Atlas, it's obvious what a consummate Pro he was. It wasn't just Romance either.... he had work in the Horror and Crime genres as well. Anyone interested can go to www.atlastales.com to find an index of the hundreds of jobs he did at Atlas with plenty of actual scans of splashes.... well worth the time. GOD BLESS... -jimbo(a friend of jesus)
  4. GOD BLESS.... -jimbo(a friend of jesus)
  5. BILL WARD ....He used to be a hotly collected artist who isn't as avidly sought after now.... which means you don't usually have to "bend over" when purchasing .....although some of them are still pricey.... like the Torchy bpoks. GOD BLESS... -jimbo(a friend of jesus)
  6. Yes they are ......and very well done for the time. When I was buying books at the stands in the 60's, I shied away from them.... probably because I was young and they were a little too sophisticated for me. GOD BLESS... -jimbo(a friend of jesus)
  7. Original Owner ....... bought directly from the person who bought them off the stands..... and usually still in high grade despite the passing of many decades. It's a term usually applied to Bronze and earlier, when folks didn't take as good care of their books, if they even kept them at all. GOD BLESS... -jimbo(a friend of jesus)
  8. People just don't realize what they're missing...... the one casualty of the slab era..... but time marches on, eh ? ..... everything changes. GOD BLESS... -jimbo(a friend of jesus)
  9. The price is certainly reasonable enough..... I remember when the Adventures from 73 to 80 wouldn't last through a whole show..... with the dual S&K features and the rest of that stellar line-up..... just good comics all the way through ..... like More Fun. GOD BLESS... -jimbo(a friend of jesus)
  10. Thanks, Russ...... I know you'll love it as much as I did. It's the Rockford Copy...... I still remember reading the reprint of this one back in the early 70's and just being blown away by that vintage Simon and Kirby. I think it was in one of those 100 pagers. I read it on our stoop until it got too dark to read ..... it was part of the Janiewicz (sp?) collection that Heritage offered about ten years ago..... this one was bought by him second hand, but his original owner Silver Age books were just off the hook.... GOD BLESS... -jimbo(a friend of jesus)
  11. That's it for now...... I might toss in a few more things later.....I've got some mid grade 10 and 12 cent DC and Charlton Romance and some BA Charlton Horror, don't know if I've got time to photo them all.... GOD BLESS... -jimbo(a friend of jesus)
