just picked up a full run of Daredevil 1-380 and Tales of Suspense 39-99. Sent these 4 in for grading and pressing. 

But not necessarily in that order.

Thank you ADAMANTIUM!!  I was really fortunate to pick up the Stan Lee sig book.  I was looking for his signature on a comic he had actually worked on, and got lucky to pick it up!  (thumbsu

I'm sure there must be a well-documented history to this, but I've never understood DC's obsession with gorilla covers.  They are obviously popular with collectors today ... but at the time, was there any evidence in the minds of the DC editorial staff that gorilla covers sold more copies?  Is there anything (continuity-wise) connecting all the different gorilla appearances?

I don't think there's any equivalent trend on the Marvel side ... off the top of my head I can think of one Silver Age book (FF #13) -- featuring the Red Ghost and His Super-Apes -- that sort of fits.  The thing is, the Super-Apes didn't even make it onto the cover.

I’ve read that the gorilla covers were indeed good sellers for DC so they kept using them. I think it was in IDW’s excellent book chronicling the decade of the 60s in comic book collecting.

Debated quite a while on the Atom 18 and when ebay had a 15% off coupon I jumped on it. One of my favorite Atom covers. Also picked up an Iron Man 4 (graded 7.0) and JLA 37 (5.0) from those cough cough other guys. Also favorite covers.
