Here's a sample of a few books I picked up last night (I seldom run into early DC but this is the 2nd collection I've seen this summer but this one also included a few Marvels I like).  There was a bunch of Batman, Action, Adventure, JLA from 1-30 and TECT's from the 50's, 60's...

That is awesome (thumbsu

Most of the JLA's seem in decent shape.  :whee:

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.

I heard that the green one was from the Marvel fan club in the early 90s but I’m not sure.  I have one and I’d like to know about it also.

Hadn't gone bargain-bin looking in a long time, so the past two days I hit some old haunts and came out with a decent little group of cheapo comics.

Who could resist Leonard Nimoy's eyebrows?  :x:x :bigsmile::headbang:

That was a great haul though, I certainly agree!  :foryou:

Picking through a LCS. Two of the last issues of the 1980s Star Wars Fan Club (Bantha Tracks), some 1986 DC promos, Batman novel, and some really cool 1976 stamps (complete with the bonus stamps).

I wasn't sure the exact date. I never go to the July one (too hot usually) and the Sept one is pretty slim pickins. I'm spoiled. I go to a big flea market just about every weekend all year long out there. I actually skipped the Rose Bowl today and the local comic book show yesterday to just chill and do other stuff. I'm going to take the Indian out for a roll in an hour or so. Cruise down Coast Highway with a couple of buddies.

Found these at a junk shop yesterday.  Not really my thing, but when I see 8.0-9.0 comics from the 1960s priced at 4 for $10, I will buy. According to OSPG, the Ellery Queen is worth $50 (in theory) but where do I find the elusive Ellery Queen fan nowadays?  

 

I could not not find any listing in OSPG for the Prince and the Pauper.  Please advise if you have any thoughts on its value.
