Just came in today.  I'm astounded interest in these early SSOCs, especially the ones with Boris covers are so overlooked and cheap

Congrats - it's an awesome book! 

In case you have not done so, you can add your SSoC Boris collection to the Registry here:

Did get this one in 2018 for my Boris set, although it's not complete - but nice to see that CGC seems to love the great mags too!

I'm still looking for a 9.8 regarding #13 and #15, but no luck searching the first 5 (or more) years, sigh. With this speed I'll capture a unicorn or bigfoot before I get #13 and #15 in 9.8 :grin:

Okay Conan fans, this is the third and final Conan hardcover published by Mirage: The Conan Grimoire. Great Wrightson wraparound cover. No Frazetta or Wrightson interiors, but different artists, including George Barr, who is fantastic.

Definitely a buyer's market out there for Conan fans.  Picked up this nice copy for only $13.50.   Some of Gil Kane's best work.

Here's another random Conan/Robert Howard fanzine from 1976. Ashcan size, mostly text lists inside.
