  1. I didn’t realize all copper keys were doing so well.
  2. I’m dyslexic and found comics incredibly hard to read as a kid with their phonetic / dialect spellings which was very frustrating as you can imagine since I loved comics. I don’t think I ever learned to read properly but instead just memorized all words as I got older. The neat thing is I’m reading a lot of the Bronze Age Marvels now and its really been a blast!
  3. I am a Spidy fan but I never really liked the covers of ASM 252 and MTU 141. I always thought SW#8 had the better cover (plus it had the origin) but alas it didn't come out first.
  4. Yeah, I always think Elfquest too, then it takes me like 10 minutes to figure it's actually Elflord. I do remember when Elflord #1 was hot! I think it was going for around $30 or so back in the day? I am a little surprise that it's not even in the Registry though.
  5. He'd be OK but I have my for Jeffrey Dean Morgan!!! He might be boarder line too old though?
  6. I'm a little surprised no one has any thoughts/comments on this...
  7. Wow, I got lucky tonight and bought this beauty on eBay at the price range I was thinking (how rare is that?). I'm still looking for 2 and 3 reprints also. Why reprints you ask? The reprints are the ones I had as a kid and remember the "REPRINT" mark on them because i had no idea what it meant!

  9. Maybe my Elflord bw’s maybe worth something some dayThey are the only BW's that I still have and that's because nobody wanted them HAHA.
  10. A similar thing happened to me when I got something reholdered. LUCKILY I had HD scans of the back cover before I sent it in. It was definitely damaged at CGC and I was pretty upset because it was an early bronze age Don Rosa Pedigree (MTU #12 CGC 9.8). They were able to press it out though and it got the same grade but it was disconcerting to say the lest. It was a massive pain too (lots of phone calls and emails).
  11. Would you say pass on this then? https://www.amazon.com/Son-Satan-Classic-1975-1977-ebook/dp/B01M0OB37D/ref=pd_ybh_a_3?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=53EBVD536353T517Q4BX Collects Ghost Rider (1973) #1-2, Marvel Spotlight (1971) #12-24, Marvel Team-Up (1972) #32, Son of Satan #1-8, Marvel Two-In-One (1974) #14.
  12. Dude, it's the first appearance of Ninja Bread Man, classic . You guy's do realize I posted that as a joke right? LOL
  13. Looking back now IMHO, copper age art is lazy (I'm thinking of Marvel in particular). There is little to no background on the covers just action snap shots. I'm not sure of the exact time this happened, maybe 84-ish? McFarlane changed that of course.
