Great thread! A lot of very nice books

 

Is Batgirl wearing stiletto heels?

Sexy? yes!

Conducive to running and fighting? Not so sure about that, but very hot.

Here is a neat Batgirl cover from the late 70s... not quite an 'appearance' per se, as it's someone else in her costume, but I always found this cover fun and intriguing, with a memorably wacky cross-section of DC characters.

Hey guys this is my first post here and I'm working on getting this issue as my second key issue. I've noticed the top right corner for 359 can have different rows for the checkerboard pattern. Can anyone explain to me why some issues are different?

I wonder if this issue has seen a spike with the Flash TV show airing this fall? Classic issue featuring the "death" of Iris - she is killed by the Reverse Flash.

Welcome to the boards! (thumbs u

 

If by 'different rows' you mean that some copies have an extra column of boxes to the right of the CCA box, that just has to do with the printing cut of the book and how much cover art is showing along the right edge. If that's not what you're referring to, hope you'll come back and clarify.

Cool thank you that's exactly what I was looking for. Just wondering if extra or less rows meant it was fake or trimmed. And is there a supply thread here? I'm looking for a top loader that can fit a standard size or silver age mylites2.

A few days late, but felt I should add it to this thread... RIP to Yvonne Craig, TV's Batgirl. :( She'll be remembered forever.

I sold a 7.0/7.5 copy at the Edmonton Expo a week and a bit ago for $900 CDN. There was lots of interest in the book.
