Great #17, Sharon! The Hangman was such a crazy concept for a hero. That's an issue I'd love to own someday too.

I've been chipping away at those early Peps as well, albeit at a glacial pace. Here's a recent pickup from ebay...

GREAT PICKUP BRO!!! That one slipped right past me didn’t even see it. Happy it went to a great home though!! Most all of us are moving at glacial speed apparently haha!!

A few more. Pep 38 is in pretty rough shape but I had a hard time finding a better one so I decided this was probably as good as it was going to get for me. As a few others have commented, it's tough and expensive to find early Peps.

:golfclap:Very nice! 

Issue #38 is very popular (Schomburg playing a very big hand in that no doubt). There is one on C'Link right now (Rockford) though not high grade, i'm sure will finish with a bang!

That said, #38 with the firing squad cover is no slouch either! Throw in the Hangman and you've got magic.

Love that one. What a sick double hypo cover!

It is. Even though #34 gets more 'hype' (and understandably so, as it has a much more sinister caricatured villain, replete with skulls and a woman in bondage) but it's a gas syringe, not a needle cover like this one though it's often mistakenly described as such. Great pick up @MustEatBrains

Next up is Pep 32. That's a nice reflection of my hand, isn't it? :facepalm:

That’s certainly an exceptionally cruel contraption the damsel is hooked up to. Yikes!
