Flipper used to be in the end zone of the Orange Bowl when the Dolphins played there.  Had to get it.

you mean Snowflake?

 

Quote

Two weeks before the Miami Dolphins are to play in the Super Bowl, their mascot, a bottlenose dolphin named Snowflake, is kidnapped. Melissa Robinson, the Dolphins' chief publicist, hires Ventura to find Snowflake

Just kidding--

Quote

Flipper was a mascot for the Miami Dolphins from 1966 to 1968.

Stumbled across these 3 last week. $20 for all 3. The Flash 218 caught my eye for it's appeal even though I already own one. (It's in the PGM section as I need some experts here to help me with one defect on the back cover.) The What If I remembered as a kid on the newsstand. Since I have the entire Conan run, I thought "why not". The Flash 225 is the shocker. It's at least a 9.4 and I bought it even though it's not on my list but love the Reverse Flash. Little did I know that the book has jumped considerably.

I went to a massive community garage sale yesterday - but I slept in a half hour longer than I should have.

By the time I got there I had a look around for comics and couldnt see any. Asked one of the ladies that was running it if they had any, she said there was a pile that sold about 10 minutes prior. She had no idea what was in the pile, so I couldnt even find out what I had missed.

I spent the rest of the day kicking myself haha.

The Flash 225 is a great cover.  Looks like it's in great shape.

it looks like to me the answer is Conan would get shot at quite a bit - that's what you get bringing a sword to a gun fight, by Crom

but seriously-- was the answer that he ended up working as a Chip 'n Dales dancer?

He turns into a mob boss, if I recall.  He doesn't understand the language, so he steals what he needs, and finds criminals willing to follow him.

Where did that box come from?  I've seen the longer orange ones from Sears/JC Penney around 1989/90, but never this.

Not sure, this is the first time that I've seen as well.

Just storage for a new collector.  The orange one was advertised in the 1989 (possibly '90) Sears and JC Penney Christmas catalogues in Canada and US.  They came with ~30 overstock comics, a guide to collecting, a repro of the first Overstreet, and a poster.  I'd very much like to know the details about this one.

Picked up an original owner collection of around 200 silver age Marvel that I bought over the weekend. Some of the better stuff.
