:banana:  Alright!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I just got it.  I wonder if a press would improve the grade?

Strange Tales #110.jpg

Beautiful presenting copy!

I wouldn't touch it....centering is great, book looks clean & colors pop. More than likely, it's already been pressed.

Congrats!

Surprised how many of these stories had Larry Lieber & Don Heck art. Guess it makes sense since Kirby & Ditko were busy on the hero content at the time.

Yup, Kirby & Ditko had their hands full for sure! Some slam Lieber and Heck art but I don't. They both made some great contributions to our beloved Marvel and while they aren't Kirby, that's ok .... because we already had a Kirby. I've never seen anything from either of them that I'd call "bad" or even approaching that. I've heard several comic collectors slam Ditko over the years too and I guess it just comes down to personal preference. I'm happy to have all that we have!  :)
