For whatever reason I dislike half-grades as well.  I wonder how common that is.

I feel like 6.0s are the start of legitimate grades, so 5.5s are SO disappointing.

I'm a fan of half grades. My favorite grade for my PHM collection is :

Speaking of recent convention pickups, snagged this Thing today from the Akron-Canton Comic Con as an upgrade. The dealer said this is from the S.S. Wilson Collection (??) - the PQ on them were great and none had any Marvel chipping. I was very surprised by the quantity of PHMs present at this local show, but had to stick to my budget :)

Here's what it replaces:

I quite like the old one. "The Thing is here! Sep 13". Makes it sound like he's in concert :)

I prefer 6.0 as a minimum grade for my pre-hero keepers as well, so I can relate.

5.5 are still sweet looking copies. Just missed 6.0 in the CGC graders eyes, but may still be sweet to YOU. If you thought they were a 6.0. There you are.

Bonus points for you (thumbsu WOF is like the red headed stepchild of the PHM set (apologize to all the red headed stepchildren here).

Tough book to find in mid and upper grade!

Best copy I've been able to get, wish the wrap was as good as yours:

Seems that any titles that aren’t in the “big 4” that spawned heroes fall into that category to some degree. The “World of” books, Strange Worlds, Uncanny Tales, Journey Into Unknown Worlds, etc. are all great books that just lack the following of the titles that survived into the late 60s. This seems especially true for those that don’t have a pre-code component.

ROMBUU I love him. Besides he is my name-name sake. And then one more, just because I feel like it.
