So Dave O'Dell's books arrived and I am very happy. In fact I let out a gasp when I opened the box.

I've waited 20 years for a copy of GS 13 to come around, and it made it's way to me. I was going to get it no matter what. I upped my ebay snipe at the last minute to $3600.00, even then I was worried. But all's well that ends well as the Bard once said.

I brought it to a local show where I boasted it's probably the best existing copy. A local dealer corrected me and said the Bethlehem copy is better. He said he'd seen it and knew the guy personal. Everybody wants to harsh my mellow.

The DS 11 was also a beauty and I'm more than happy with the price I paid. If I sold it on here, I'd ask for, and I imagine would get more.

Just do a "Teen-age Romances" search and look for the water-logged copy of issue 32 (or search "Matt Baker").  Avalon-Collectibles is the seller, and you'll want to look at all of his/her listings.

I'll attempt to link it though:

Great taste in comics, but evidently used them to line her hamster cage.

Nothing a good press couldn't straighten out I'm sure...

I'll be keeping that secret until I have finished acquiring at least one copy of each issue.  I will reveal that these are 60+ page foreign editions, and each copy I have so-far procured has been PACKED with Baker art.

OK, Seven Seas cover is an action shot but in case you wonder what happened next (as I do) I noticed a page with a follow up.  Luckily she was fighting a lone shark.

I have a 2.0 copy coming back from CGC, so it will be interesting to see what it brings.

If all 2.0's looked like that, what a wonderful world it would be!

His Venus 19 and TAR 43 also present fantastically for the grades.  Quite a good eye, this guy.
