  1. First PGM. I'm looking at graded issues within the same series and +/- a year. I'll only say I'd think at least 8.0. Although, even lower might make it a candidate to send in. Comments appreciated. Will also find a few 80's that might have value if a 9.8, but not worth sending in if under that.
  2. Just one lot for sale tonight. Pay Pal is fine and shipping will be $5 in the USA. Anywhere else and we will need to discuss. Returns accepted timely. All these books present very well for the grade. All DC Giant Size issues from the Silver and Bronze Age. Feel free to PM me with any questions or Offers. 2017 Guide Vaule on this lot is $124 - Asking $35 Or Best Offer DC Giant Size Lot of 7 issues: 80pg Giant #11 1965 GD GV=$20 Jimmy Olsen #131 1970 VG- GV=$8 Superman #212 1968 GD/VG GV=$10 Superman #227 1970 F/VF GV=$28 Superman #232 1970 VG+ GV=$15 Superman #239 1971 F+ GV=$23 Superman #272 1974 F+ GV=$20
  3. Hi all, For the last few weeks I have had a thread up offering mostly Classics and related material, from a 16-box estate collection that was maybe 85% Classic Comics/Classics Illustrated. Rather than run one long, confusing (to me!) thread for everything. I am willing to share from that collection, I am trying to share in focused threads, for those who might not be interested in everything coming to the board from this sizable collection. So here is round two, about half a short box of various Silver age Superman titles. But first, First in thread wins Payment: Checks or money orders (I don't have PayPal) Shipping: USPS Priority $7 for as many can fit in a legal size priority envelope, inside a flip n ship mailer. Single books can ship first class at $5. If we're over the legal envelope capacity, books move to a Regional box or medium Priority box (est. $10-$13.65). Returns: Sure, just notify me within three days of receipt and get them back on your dime in the same shape for a purchase price refund. Don't be listy including the little one in my head. Ready? Up, up and away!
  4. Comics Unlimited's eBay shop! Check out my latest eBay auctions at the above link. This time around I put up a number of war comics from the 1950's, as well as a couple 1950's SUPERMAN titles, a TUROK SON OF STONE #16, THE SEARCHERS, and WESTERN COMICS, and an issue of TIP TOP COMICS #222 with The Peanuts. Many cool items! All the auction listings end on Sunday, August 20. Thanks!
  5. Yesterday we took a look at the dawn of the Bronze Age with the Superbooks. It would be about another year, however, for the Superbooks to start hitting their stride with some classic Bronze Age goodness. For me, the quintessential Superman Bronze Age book is Superman #233, so let's see what else was on the newsstands that month as well. Aside from having the most iconic of Neal Adams' Superman covers, this issue starts a year-long story of a de-powered Superman by Denny O'Neil. While this was supposed to reset the status quo, it was largely contained within the pages of Superman and lasted only as long as Denny O'Neil stuck around. Those eleven issues are now affectionately known as the Sand-Superman Saga. It has its rightful place in Superman history, but honestly...80% of the reason is that cover! Superman's Girl Friend Lois Lane #107 has another Rose & Thorn back-up, and nothing screams Bronze Age like street-level vigilantism. Superboy #171 has one of the better (and all too rare) Carmine Infantino Superman covers. Great stuff! I'm not much of an historian for Aquaman, but was Aquaboy ever really a thing? Jack Kirby was just getting started on his Fourth World epic, and we get Darkseid's second appearance here in Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen #135. ...and is that another cover in the "people vs. Superman" theme on Action Comics #396? Suddenly he's the Rodney Dangerfield of super-heroes. Another decent month in the world of Superman!
  6. Continuing on for the theme of the week, let's set the time machine forward a few years to April of 1969 to see both the end of one era, and the dawn of another. The end of the Silver Age is a hard one to pin down, and there's a ton of debate to be had. I, myself, like to keep things simple and generally assume that the end of the 12¢ books also ends the Silver Age, and this is the month that it happened. I sorted the books by release date, so you'll see that it starts with 10¢ books and ends with the 12¢ books. Aside from Adventure Comics #381, which features the debut issue of the solo Supergirl stories, there is no real tonal shift per se. It was more of a gradual shift as the civil rights movement started to shift the consciousness of the country forward. We do get a great month of Neal Adams covers though! Superboy #157 features another in the all time favorite "people vs. Superman" theme. Superman and Batman duel it out gladiator-style in World's Finest Comics #185. While not one of his most iconic covers, he gets the honor of doing Supergirl's first issue from her headlining run in Adventure Comics. He's also credited with inking the Curt Swan cover for Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen #120, but I'll be darned if I can see any of Curt left in the final project. Superman #217 is a giant-size issue, featuring a great load of reprints with the first appearances of Brainiac, Metallo, Lori Lemaris, the pre-Kara Supergirl, and of course...Mala! Four Neal Adams covers and a bunch of classic reprints? I call that a win!
  7. So I was ruminating on the state of my Superman collection the other day, as I am getting close to checking off all of the 12¢ books from Superman and Action Comics. That made me curious as to how far back I could get in my collection, and have the entire month of Superman books represented. I figured it would be early in the 12¢ run somewhere, but to my surprise it was late in the 10¢ era instead. Step out of the time machine, and welcome to the world of November 1959! No key issues for this month, but the Superbabies are quite popular as we get both a Superboy and a Supergirl Superbaby story. Since Supergirl only made her first appearance less than a year prior, I'm guessing that this is the first Supergirl Superbaby story? See, there is a key here after all! Now I know what your thinking..."Hold up, how can there be a story of Supergirl when she was a baby as she came to Earth as a teenager?" Blame it on the fountain of youth she inadvertently swims through while rescuing a drowning native in a far off exotic island. And that is why Silver Age stories never get boring. There's always a fountain of youth around when you need one to spice up a story! While the cover for Superman's Girl Friend Lois Lane #14 teases a Batman appearance, it's not to be. It's all a ruse by Supergirl meddling in her cousin's love life trying to make Superman jealous. This is Supergirl's first appearance in Lois' book and her third outside of Action Comics, after guest-starring in Jimmy Olsen's and Superman a few month's prior. The Superboy #78 is the real winner from this month however, as not only do you get a great Jor-El cover, but all three of the stories inside are gems. Since the aforementioned debut of Supergirl had just happened and proved a hit, I guess Superboy wanted to get in on the action as the opening story has Clark changed to Claire Kent, Super-Sister! Hey kids, look! It's Supergirl as a brunette! The second story gives us the origin of Clark's super-suit, while the last one gives us a view into the early life of Mr. Mxyzptlk and the origin of their longstanding feud. Good stuff! All in all, a solid month, and it's especially great if you are a Supergirl fan. I do wonder though, how this period played out if you were a Superman fan who was still of the age where girls had cooties.
  8. Yesterday I was a little surprised that I was able to go all the way back to November of 1959, with having a complete set of all the Superbooks on sale for a particular month. I thought for sure that my oldest set would've been in the early 12¢ era. I ended up being wrong twice, as not only could I go farther back than I thought, but the next instance of this happening is way into the second half of the Silver Age. It takes another 7 ½ years for my collection to once again have all of the Superbooks for any particular month. I give to you, the Superman newsstand of June 1967... There's two things to notice here. First, we have three different cover dates for the books that were on sale during June of 1967. The monthly books are all cover dated August, while the 80 Pg. Giants are dated September and October. I don't claim to have a PhD in cover dates, but I do know enough that the month on the cover is supposed to be the month that the books were to be removed from the newsstand, and not the actual month that they were released. Why they decided to give Lois' 80-pager an extra month over Jimmy's is curious. I'm guessing it's because the Lois book was released during the last week of June. For future newsstand months, I should probably put them in order of release date, rather than my typical fashion of ordering them by the age of the title (e.g. Action always goes first, then Adventure, World's Finest, Superboy, etc...) The other thing that sharp-eyed readers may notice is that there is a book missing...Superman #199. This book is the first Superman/Flash race, and a true key for any Superman or Flash collector. So why is it missing? Here's why... About 8 years ago or so, I finished up the small run of the Silver Age Superman/Flash races, which includes the following... Superman #199 Flash #175 World's Finest #198-199 When I laid them all out in order, it was a perfect example of the linear storytelling we all enjoy so much. The first book has the two heroes right at the start of the match, then Superman pulls ahead, then Flash pulls ahead, then to the last book where it is neck and neck over the finish line. I loved the way they looked so much, that I hired my sister to mat and frame them for me! She ended up doing it for free as a birthday present, and they've been hanging up in my office ever since.
  9. And finally, we have what has to be the greatest of all Superman gorilla covers...or at least the zaniest! Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen #98 I mean, c'mon...what's not to love about this one... Jimmy as Tarzan, getting married to a female King Kong in a bridal veil, with the ceremony being performed by Superman, who just happens to be the local witch doctor. Since he's a witch doctor, he has brought with him his boiling cauldron. It's good to know they went for at least one aspect of realism with this cover! Whatever drugs they were smoking back in 1966, I hope that a) they didn't screw up the writer and artist for life, or b) they helped you make heads or tails of this cover! This particular issue I got in a bulk lot of Jimmy Olsen titles from one of the LCS' auctions. I think I ended up paying under $2 when everything was said and done. Always on the prowl for an upgrade of this one. Have a great weekend everyone. Don't do anything rash that you'll regret like our impetuous friend Jimmy!
