    Loose Centerfold Grading

    The timing of this topic is quite interesting, as I finally found a higher-grade raw copy of Brave and the Bold #60 with a rock-solid centerfold a few weeks ago, and had this exact discussion with the dealer who sold it to me...he was commenting on how difficult it was to find a copy that was 1) higher grade and 2) free of centerfold issues. It took me quite a while to find a nicer copy that didn't have either a partially detached centerfold or a centerfold that was on its way to being detached...even higher grade copies of this book seemed to have this issue. The dealer and I also discussed how a lot of copies of Hawkman #1 seem to have a partially detached cover... @boomtown, good luck with your hunt for copies of Brave and the Bold #60 that don't have centerfold issues!
  3. I was first going to vote for Iron Man #1 or FF #48, but decided on the 7.0 Spidey #50...

    Why are Hawkmans so cheap?

    When I first collected comics as a kid in the late 70s, I got into Hawkman because of the awesome artwork and science-themed stories, and completed a low-grade run of #1-27... When I got back into collecting Silver Age comics in 2000 I decided to collect the Brave and the Bold and Mystery in Space Hawkman issues, along with Hawkman #1-20 in mid to high grade...I have a few books to go, but at least have a Hawkman #4 (whew!).

    Fanzine and Convention Program Book Appreciation Thread

    I've never collected fanzines, but recently read Bill Schelly's book about comic fandom and really enjoyed it...it has quite a few images of early fanzine covers and interior art: https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/562290/sense-of-wonder-by-bill-schelly/9781623171513/ It's interesting that several (many?) professional comic writers and artists started out in comic fandom...

    Bigger SA key: Silver Surfer 1 or Fantastic Four 49

    Fantastic Four #49 for me as well, but I'm trying to put together a run of Fantastic Four #1-60 and do not collect the Silver Surfer title, so I'm somewhat biased...

    Stan Lee RIP

    A sad day indeed...RIP Stan. Thanks for everything you did to make this hobby of ours so enjoyable.
  9. I agree. Shipping a $150 slab from California to the East Coast via insured USPS Priority Mail costs a bit over $16, assuming postage is not purchased via a website that offers a discount...
  10. Great reports, as usual...thanks for sharing!

    1975 San Diego Comic Con

    The 1975 price guide was the first one I bought too, right after I got into buying comics...will always have a soft spot for that price guide! As a little kid I remember being floored by the prices for Golden Age and early Silver Age books...if I would have known then what I know now... I think a buddy of mine bought a nice Avengers #1 for $30(!) and traded it for a sweet Spidey #2 around that same time, if I remember correctly...
