Congrats Scott. Its strange how we where all chating about how strange was this book and how no one has seen a copy on the market and then sudenly in less than one week two copies pop out of nowhere. 

This happened already with others: Cuentos de brujas 37, Misterios del Gato Negro 132, Marivila (Showcase 30) . Somehow we call them and the blessing comes twice ...

Nice books. Who was the Nembo Kid @marmat ?

Nembo Kid was Superman, it was his name in Italy. 

Actually, he was first called Ciclone in the first italian edition back in 1941.

He later got his own series and he was called Nembo Kid. 

It wasn't until the 60's when he got his real neme back. 

Pretty crazy, isn't?

Indeed. Nembo Kid seems so far away from Superman. I like it though.  Stand back, it's the Nembo Kid! Ciclone sounds more villain like. Love foreign editions...?

Oddest place to find something.....

I was on a 2 week family vacation to Scotland and then Barcelona.  On our last day in Barcelona, we came across a small antique show just off "La Rambla" and the marina.   I found this stack of books in a box full of paper.  I had to negotiate from his asking price of 50 Euros down to the 35 Euros I had in my pocket along with $5 US.  It was an awesome back and forth but no way I was leaving anything.  Almost 60 books in all.  The condition is not so great as you can see including some separated  covers, but some really cool books in there mostly from the 50s.  The 3 "Pieds Nickeles" are french from the 40s and include #1 (3rd series).    The Flash Gordon is a compilation book, also from the 50s        I will be cross posting this in the foreign book area as well.

I was thrilled with this find and the deal I got on it!

Wasn't quite sure where to ask this question so figured the knowledgeable folks over in this thread may be able to help me out. I work with a few gals who are from the Philippines  and they know i am into comics. They talk about Darna all the time who is a female superheroine from around the Golden Age. Anyways was looking for her 1st cover app and keep coming up with this book. Pilipino Komiks #78. Problem is I can't find an actual copy anywhere and that includes sold items as well. Anyone seen or heard of this book and have anymore info on it? thanks!!
