  1. Well, I have been thinking about trading my Superman #16 CGC 8.5 o/w pages for an Incredible Hulk #181 9.4 ow. While I know there are many variables involved, I'd like to hear from the experts. I'm leaning toward not, myself.
  2. Hi Golden Age Collectors Dont look at this as advertising. It’s more of a giveaway. It took me 1.5 years to build the largest mobile database of key issues and Im giving it away for free on the iTunes Store and Google Play. Search “Key Collector Comics” You can view over 7,000 key issues with price guidance, catalog what you own and build a wish list of what you want. No ads. No freemiums. No profit. I have thousands of Golden Age books logged including 1st appearances, pre-code horror classics and World War II cover art. Hundreds of entries identify classic art by Wolverton, Schomburg, Baker and others. Check it out and let me know what you think. Have fun and Thanks! -Nick Free download on iTunes or Google Play or access links to download the app at keycollectorcomics.com
  3. PM me with offers but if someone else swoops down with an then it goes to them. it is the official sale of the book, the handshake if you will. I try to do my best with grading and can’t guarantee what CGC would grade it as. PAYMENT PayPal preferred. Winners can PM me their email for invoices. Checks/Money Orders please allow 3-5 days for clearance. SHIPPING I can ship 1 - 5 comics via USPS Flat rate padded envelope for $6 if value is under $100. $10 Flat rate if over $100 value. I can ship 1-2 CGC Graded books for $17 with tracking and Insurance. Please NO Returns, I’ve dealt with people trying to return the same issue that is a lower grade from what I sent them, claiming that’s the book I sent. I will leave you kudos so please do the same for me! See my positive feedback on eBay NuffSaid14 2 Golden Age Coverless Books for Sale: Sub-Mariner #8 1943! Rare book!! Looks solid with staple firmly attached but with rust. I’m amazed by the interior colors of this book. $100 National Comics #1 - 1st appearance Uncle Sam 1940! Will Eisner Classic and rare book. You don’t see these pop up often staples attached no ink bleeding - solid book for Coverless copy. asking $150
  4. For sale is batman issue 2 from the golden age. Comic is the second appearance of both joker and catwoman. Comic is coverless. Splash page is brittle and barely hanging on. Rest of the book is solid and page quality significantly better. Comic is complete minus the missing cover. Perfect for someone looking to put together issue 2 and finds just the cover. Asking $600 plus shipping obo. Returns accepted in 2 weeks after delivered minus any shipping costs.
  5. I'm not sure if someone has made a thread dedicated to Captain Marvel, but if so I couldn't find it. So figured I'd start one until told differently for people to share there's. Here's my three copies with more to come. -Whiz Comics #47 CGC 9.4 (Crowley Pedigree), 2nd highest graded with only 11 unrestored on the census. -Whiz Comics #67 CGC 9.4 (Crowley Pedigree/File Copy), 2nd highest graded with only 13 unrestored on the census. -Whiz Comics #69 CGC 9.4, 2nd highest graded with only 45 unrestored on the census.
  6. I've been meaning to write about this for a while, but it peeved me significantly that I decided to wait. In early June, I submitted some comics to CGC. Among those comics were some issues by the publisher Fox Feature Syndicate. (The specific issues included the titles Junior and Sunny.) I've always had a pet peeve about the misspelling of this publisher's name. The name, as indicated in the indicia, as well as the colophon (logo), is "Fox Feature Syndicate." It is NOT "Fox Features Syndicate," with an "s" at the end of "Features." It's just "Feature" (no "s"). It's easy to see how anybody would make this error, since when pronouncing the name out loud, the "s" sound seems like it is attached to the end of the word "Feature" even though it's really only at the beginning of the word "Syndicate." (Sort of like how some people misinterpret the Jimi Hendrix song lyric "while I kiss the sky" as "while I kiss this guy"... Or like the SNL sketch with Sean Connery reading "S Words" as "Swords"...) First-world problems, right? Okay, sure. But it's also an issue of accuracy. Would you want a CGC label that listed the publisher as "Marvell," or "Tymely," or "Needor"? I wouldn't. I wouldn't trust a company that made those kinds of errors. CGC is the kind of company that is based in the concept of accuracy. It's not a corrugated-cardboard company or aluminum-siding company, where a misspelling or typographical error doesn't matter. It's in the business of paying attention to details and getting little things right. So I feel that it's fair for me to take issue with the misspelling of the publisher's name. So yeah, I think it is a problem, and I think even though it's trivial in the grand scheme of life, within the realm of "Let's be accurate wherever possible," it is an abdication of that commitment to accuracy. So back to my experience this past summer: I submitted some comics in early June. Prior to submitting, I called CGC's customer service and asked them about the "Fox Features Syndicate" problem. I said I wanted to submit, but didn't want the label to have the misspelled publisher. I was told that they would address the misspelling and that it shouldn't be a problem, so go ahead and submit the comics. So I did. When submitting the comics, I attached a hand-written note on each comic sleeve, saying "Please note that the publisher's name is 'Fox Feature Syndicate,' not 'Fox Features Syndicate.' Please make sure the label reflects that." (Incidentally, I did my best to be polite in every communication the matter.) When the comics were received by CGC and processed as Verified, they were posted in my account's submissions section with the wrong publisher name, "Fox Features Syndicate." I thought that meant that they were ignoring my request for the misspelling to be fixed, so I called CGC customer service again. I was told, "Oh, that's just because it's the way it's currently spelled in our database. We will look into that issue before the comics are graded and the labels printed." I said okay, but also said "I don't want the comics graded if the publisher is going to be misspelled." The customer-service rep noted my request. Fast-forward a couple months. In early August, the comics were Scheduled for Grading (it took a while, and I realize it was convention season so there would be a delay), with the publisher still wrong. I sent an email asking if they were going to fix it, and again stating that I did not want the comics graded with the wrong publisher name on the label. Not long after, the comics were Graded and out for shipment (Shipped/Safe) in short order. I looked at the grades online and saw that the comics were still listed as "Fox Features Syndicate" as the publisher. That same day, I received an email response that stated the following: "Thank you for your email. I have confirmed with the graders and the Publisher "Fox Features Syndicate" will remain unchanged. I have also confirmed that they will not be indicating the issue date for the MLK comic as there is not one listed on the book. The Original printing is apparent from the "No Date" issue date and the Fellowship Publisher." Regarding the MLK comic mentioned above, I had requested if possible for the date of the comic's publication (1957) to be indicated on the label, to distinguish it from the reprints that happened a decade or so later. I didn't know how CGC had labeled the MLK comics in the past, but thought if they could include the date on the label, that would be useful since the whole point of getting comics CGC graded is to certify that they're authentic, and having the date of that comic on the label would make that clear. What I find interesting about this detail is that the crux of the reason they couldn't put the date on the label for the MLK comic was that "the date is not listed on the book." If CGC is that concerned about adhering to what is listed on the book, then why do they misspell "Fox Feature Syndicate" when it is written that way in the indicia? I called customer service again, and got Cynthia again. Incidentally, I would like to state that Cynthia was very professional and polite throughout each conversation, even though I got very frustrated with the situation at the end. I also realize that Customer Service reps are just doing what they're told to do by somebody higher up the chain. Here are the various reasons I was told for why CGC cannot publish "Fox Feature Syndicate" comics with the correct publisher name. I typed these down after the phone call, and they are as close to direct quotes as possible: -- Fixing the spelling of the publisher "would cause us to have to change our database." Yes, this was given as a reason. I cannot fathom why this shouldn't be a trivial change for a professional, functional company to make to a database. -- "Other sources (publications/companies) also use that spelling." This is true, others do use the misspelled name, particularly the Overstreet guidebook. I see no reason why CGC should commit to compounding an ongoing error just because others do. I looked through multiple sources, and here are some of the ones who get the spelling right: Webcitation, the Comics Library, Wikipedia, Toonopedia, ComicBookPlus, Comic Vine, DC Comics Artists, Revolvy, the Digital Comic Museum, International Hero, Grant Geissman (in several of his published books), BIP Comics, and The Grand Comic Book Database. HAS IT WRONG: The DC Comics Database, My Comic Shop [fixed after reading this message! cool!], Good Girl Comics [FIXED! Gracias!], and the Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide. And....CGC. -- "Both spellings are equally correct. Your spelling is correct, but our spelling is not incorrect." This is a direct quote. For the record, the "Fox Features Syndicate" spelling of the publisher name is absolutely incorrect. I did a fair amount of research to make sure I wasn't making a mistake on my own side. Until 1944 they were Fox Publications and listed addresses in Massachusetts. Then the business was reincorporated as Fox Feature Syndicate, Inc., and they were located at offices located at 10 E. 43rd St. and also 50 E. 42nd St. in New York, New York until declaring bankruptcy in 1950. All of their indicia say "Fox Feature Syndicate," with there being two exceptions -- two issues of Romeo Tubbs from 1950, where it does say "Fox Features Syndicate." There are a handful of instances where the name says "Fox Publications" or "Fox Comics," and there are a handful of late issues that present the cover title with the words "Fox Features." But the indicia/colophon is spelled out as "Fox Feature Syndicate" 99% of the time. To quote the Grand Comic Book Database (from multiple pages, separated by ellipses): "Nearly all of Fox's post-war material was published as Fox Feature Syndicate, which is the name that the MSU Comic Art Collection applies to all of Victor Fox's publishing ventures. Only Romeo Tubbs #26(27) and #28 say "Fox Features Syndicate". ... Probably the result of a typo, this alternate company spelling (note the "s" on the end of "Features") has been spotted on one series (so far) from 1950. The vast majority of issues list the indicia publisher without the "s". ... Entry for Fox Feature Syndicate has 306 issues with the name A Fox Feature Publication (or Fox Feature Syndicate), as opposed to 2 issues of Romeo Tubbs. ... Confusingly, a few series in the early 50's [2 issues of Romeo Tubbs] featured an indicia publisher of "Fox Features Syndicate, Inc." (note 's' at end of "Features"), which is listed as a separate indicia publisher. However, that form is rare." -- "We cannot put the date on the MLK comic, because the indicia does not have the date. We can only put on the label that which is on the indicia." / ME: "The indicia for the other comics says Fox Feature Syndicate." / CGC: "That is correct, but our spelling is not incorrect." -- Finally: "If you want, you can mail them (the Fox Feature Syndicate comics) back and have them removed from the holder, and then you can get a refund." During our phone conversation, at one point the customer service rep. put me on hold to double-check with the grader/manager who was telling her the situation. While I was on hold, there was a CGC recording touting the company as setting the industry standard for its "commitment to accuracy." I found that ironic. The phone conversation ended with me telling the customer-service rep that I expected better from CGC. I tried not to be rude, but it really did frustrate me because I thought I made a strong case, and I felt like CGC didn't care about my concerns, and was just blowing me off without much explanation (or with explanations that didn't have much merit, in my view). I have since cooled off about it, but I wanted to write something to get this off my chest. I realize I am sort of tilting at a windmill here. But it does bug me. I have to say, at the time, I felt like it put me off of the comics-collecting hobby to a large degree. It also made me question getting anything graded again. I do see how CGC might want to just consolidate a bunch of "Fox Feature Syndicate" related publisher names into one catch-all name that they can use for all the Fox publications in their database, to make it easier on themselves. I also see that Fox comics are a pretty small percentage of the stuff that CGC grades, given that it's a solely Golden Age publisher and not something that is going to affect anything but a tiny percentage of customers, many of whom don't care anyway. I also realize that CGC was dealing with convention season at the time, and probably had much bigger fish to fry than dealing with this issue, even if they agreed with it to some extent ("Your spelling is correct, but our spelling is not incorrect.") AND... I can see why CGC would not want to open a can of worms by suddenly writing the publisher a different way, because then all the people who had labels with the other spelling would have a spelling deemed "incorrect" by CGC and could then demand to have their comic reholdered for free to fix the error. Nonetheless, I am frustrated and disappointed that CGC has stated they have no concern about a verifiable error being published on the labels of their graded comics. I am also disappointed that CGC misled me about a situation until it was too late for me to make the decision not to have the comics graded (though they offered a refund if I sent the comics back for de-slabbing, which is kind of an insult.) I have spent several thousand dollars at CGC and would hope to be treated as a valued customer, not somebody whose concerns are a joke to them. Okay, well.... I think I have fully vented here. Thanks for reading.
  7. Hello, As my title says, I am looking for a special book to buy for a former Marine. My father served 30 years in the US Marines and inspired me to join (I currently have been in for 12 years). I am looking for this book as a gift for him. The details for the specific book I am looking for are below. I have seen a couple online but was wondering if anybody has (or knows someone who has) a copy that they might be willing to part with. Thank you. Book: United States Marines #3 Year: 1944 Publisher: Magazine Enterprises
  8. Seeing how many links to images of Bangzoom's amazing collection have been broken I though I'd create a thread to store what remains. The original thread is here Images remain up to page 11 and are missing from page 12 to current page 908. What a sad loss.
  9. Hello! Just joined this forum, hopefully I'm doing it right. My father has an extensive golden age collection, and as I'm getting older and going through his stuff I've fallen in love with precode horror books. The guidelines said to post specific wants but I have so few so far I'm open to anything honestly. I love the EC stuff like Shock and Crime Suspenstories, but I'm really interested in non-EC horror books too. Avon, Farrell, etc Buying on a college budget so I'm not looking for any high grade or slabbed comics, low grade reader copies are fine with me! I included a pic of what I have already. I also have a double of Haunt of Fear #27 that I would like to trade for something if anyone is interested. Any help is appreciated. Thanks
  10. Hello, I'm new to the boards here so please excuse any clumsiness on my part. I am looking for a coverless copy of the DC/ National : More Fun Comics # 55 from the 1940's. If you know anyone interested in selling one, please contact me. Thanks for your time and kind attention.
  11. Detective Comics #73 - 1st Scarecrow Cover These are the only pictures I have...didn't have white gloves. This book belongs to a friend of mine that stashed away about 70 comics 20 years ago and had 4 really neat GA Books! NEED YOUR HELP WITH THIS GA CLASSIC! Based only on what you see what grade do you put on this one? Defects I can only see without taking the book out: This book appears to have pulled away from the staple but some of the cover is still attached. The top edge is where I see paper very brittle and sticking out passed the top edge. This leaves me to believe that this defect is one where the page is torn and folded over. Obvious writing on the FC, may have it on the back. Tears up and down the spine, crease on the cover that break color. Page quality looked Cream but not tan so that's good! Now for the good Despite the creases and color breaks this book really pops. Strong eye appeal! Edges are not bad probably the 2nd best thing about this book's condition. Still attached and I assume no missing pages. Anyways...thanks for any advice. I won't say what grade I think it is to keep the mind open. -Jeff
  12. The Edmonton boardies are discussing taking the show on the road and attending a US show next year. While I freely admit that it sounds like mostly an excuse to go drink beer away from our wives, I would love your thoughts on what show you would recommend and why (e.g. Guest List, Party experience with Boardies, Best GA selection). As a side note, I've been to the NYC show a couple of times and a couple of the other guys have been to SD in the past. I have asked a couple of people and heard differing responses, so let the conversation begin...
  13. Please reply to this post sharing your experience(s) dealing with me (buying or selling). Thanks! - Sean

  21. I regularly buy and sell comics, as many of us do, but I've come into a Phantom Stranger 6 from the 1952 series. Typically, I use completed eBay listings, as a guide, but eBay hasn't seen a copy of this book recently enough. It's rare I find something this scarce, and I would love insight, as to what other sources may be trusted, as a true market price. I'm not opposed to hearing opinions on a price range or grade, but I'd also like to find out what could be used in a situation like this. Is it better to just auction an item this rare and see what it does? I'm aware of gpa, but I don't have access to it, and I would ask, if it isn't reliable on a scarce book like this? The book is obviously low grade, but it is complete (I've counted the pages). The cover isn't detached, and there is a spine split nearly half of the way down. It's a pretty incredibly tight book though. There are other various condition issues with the water damage, smaller tears, and such, but the pictures should help clarify those. There are no cutouts or other major defects ( aside from what is in the photos) in the body of the book itself. This is my first post to any of the cgc forums, so I hope this is in an appropriate place and within guidelines. I'm just looking for some information and iddealy some new tools to be able to help myself in the future. If not, then I'm here to share this scarce old book. Thanks for your time!
