Love that Shrunken Skull story! If I’m not mistaken, that story is the one that’s reprinted/redrawn in the Eerie Pub mags. (thumbsu

Congrats!  I think #2 is the toughest in the run to collect.  Also a good read if you decide to jailbreak it.

Their are several other books in that January 1952 time period that tend to have split spines.

Got back my first direct submission to CGC (still not word on the other submissions I did through a LCS last June). Very close in what I was expecting the grades to be, but a little disappointed in the True Love Problems grade as it seems I missed a very tiny split in the top spine they found which knocked it down. The Airboy would have been nice to be tied for highest grade, but with the chipping on the right it was more of a dream-gamble (but still happy with it as it was just for my personal collection, as this is my favourite Heap issue & cover). Love the colours on both of them.

Great books! I'm especially fond of the Airboy. Gotta love The Heap!

Awhile back I was looking for random stuff on goldenagecomics.com and he had listed that issue, but with a DOUBLE COVER. I was honestly floored and contacted him about it (and a few other things) to buy it...

...alas, after looking around I was told it must have been a listing mistake and they didn't have that issue. Damn collecting heart attack.

Finally able to check this one off my PC list. Been on there quite a while. Usually the underbidder or a few minutes late when offered for sale on the boards. Love this cover, and the colors are strong.

And I always enjoy a great skeleton cover

Thrilling Crime Cases 49 is the toughest of the run to collect, and that copy is really nice, congrats!

Thank you. Colors have much more pop in hand. I fixed my scanner settings. Realized for some reason after 3 yeras they went back to old default settings. Was wondering wh2020-02-13-0010.thumb.jpg.c6289b504ab877d6b648450225dd4374.jpgy all scans seemed so dark.

The 21 looked nice. And I like how there were grades given but wish there was less cropping. I was waiting on the 26 and didn’t refresh in time.

Which ones?
