  1. Hello, I will be at the San Diego Con from Tuesday on, til the show over on Sunday. If you have a specific book(s) you need, and unable to attend, drop me a PM. will do my best to find what your looking for. YOU ARE NOT OBLIGATED TO BUY THE BOOK FROM ME IF FOUND. Or I could send a pix and price and put you in contact with the seller. GA, SA and BA ONLY, I don't do copper or modern books, so please don't ask, (Obscure publishers and titles, more preferred, and more exciting to dig out) You don't need me to find your a Hulk 181 right? If this helps you find that special book you have been looking for, great, I'm happy to help out, Brian

    I can smell the fresh white pages from here, nice book!!!!!
  4. I think John's idea for this type of con, is great, if a lot of collectors show up AND BUY COMICS! more dealers will participate and maybe John will expand it with more days. Bunky's were invited but between prepping in No Cal and So Cal, for the SD "media" event, could not find the time to make both happen. I would love to do this type of show, if it grows and sustains real deal collectors that buy! and drop SD forever, Just saying, Bri

  7. GREETINGS ALL, We have stumbled across a collector, and comic publisher, and purchased some 200 ish Gary Arlington comics. The first load was put up for sale couple weeks, ago, and the second batch was just taken in to be processed. As it turns out, the seller, also has some OA that he like to sell. I will be putting them up here, to see if anybody has any interest in them. I have seen them all, they are gorgeous and unique and one of a kind, first a back story for your enjoyment, Cryptic Entertainment In the early 1990’s, after two decades of collecting EC comics, Jeff Cain decided it was time to pick up where William Gaines has left off. Cryptic Entertainment launched as a small, independent publisher, located in the San Francisco area. The goal was to publish a line of EC, "homage" titles. With little money and much effort, the first title "Tomb Tales" was published using a small printing company out of Texas. About 3,000 copies were printed, of which one third went to Diamond for distribution. The flagship title, "Tomb Tales" ran for 7 issues. A second title called, "Grave Yarns" (featuring one artist doing the whole book), was published and begin building some buzz in the comic industry. With interest building, plans for a third and fourth title quickly came about. Leveraging longtime relationships, Cryptic Entertainment reached out to legendary EC artist such as Jack Davis, Al Williamson, Johnny Craig and Jack Kamen for covers, mock ups and story ideas. As the story goes, Diamond then "killed" the company by requiring minimum target sales, and additional advertising that would require huge amounts of cash to fund ads in the monthly catalog. Unable to raise enough capital to meet marketing needs, coupled with production costs and mounting debt, Cryptic Entertainment had no choice but to closed up shop. The artwork you see was either used in the first series title, Tomb Tales, or mocked up and scheduled to be used in the upcoming titles that never made it to print. One small tiny story in the universe that is comic fandom. All orders come with 100% full refund if not happy. Payment any way you like. All orders shipped FEX EX insured, sig req, USA only, sorry international, References Gator, Bedrock, Vinnie, Bob Storms, Primetime, I can and will get more pix if and when needed, I will be laying these out very slow, as to gauge the interest, THEY WILL NOT BE AT THE SAN DIEGO SHOW, BUT I WILL HAVE BINDER AND FULL PAGE PIX FOR ANYBODY TO SEE IF INTERESTED.
  8. Agreed, will be getting pix this week, of the original EC art, and post here to offer to the boardies first. Bri
  9. Thanks to everybody that bought in the thread, Gary sounds like an incredible passionate collector to say the least. I could use some help, in strategies' for selling a ton of original EC artist commissioned art, and paintings. Any experienced OA collectors reading this, give me a PM, to discuss in detail. thanks Brian
  10. last one TALES FROM THE CRYPT #26 Grade: 5.5 FN - Price: $350 OCT 1951; Cream to off white. One half inch tape inside spine. The book has the distinction of sporting Wally Woods second cover for EC. The comics lead story, drawn by Jack Davis, features an artist who thinks he is been underpaid, and in true EC fashion, the guy has got a plan to exact revenge. Other artists include standby Graham Ingels, plus Golden Age stalwarts H. L. Larsen and George Roussos. From the Gary Arlington collection, known for bright colors and supple pages. COA included.
  11. Sorry, I missed these two books TALES FROM THE CRYPT #25 Grade: 5.0 VG/FN Price: $350 AUG 1951; Cream to off white pages. Al Feldstein does one of his six covers for the title, which evolved from The Crypt of Terror, which evolved from Crime Patrol, which evolved from International Crime Patrol, which evolved from International Comics (whew!). We think they finally got it right with the final name! Jack Davis, Graham Ingels, Wally Wood, and Jack Kamen make the insides as good as the outside. From the Gary Arlington collection, known for bright colors and supple pages. COA included.
