Great book! I own the cover proof!

 

Otherwise, great books guys. I just can't throw down for your high grade copies. However, I did manage to grab these 2 lately, and I've actually picked up 10-12 since the new year, but these 2 are newest:

Happy to have picked this book up recently. So many of Cole's Star books are printed off-center, was glad to find a nicely-centered copy.

Researching comics at the DCM, I came across something that may be of interest to L.B. Cole art appreciators. While it is not a cover per say, it is the inside front cover of 4 Most Comics V7 #4, in which the Editors offer a small, cute interview with Cole (that issue's front cover artist). I mention cute, because 4 Most was targeting more of a juvenile demographic. I hope this has not been posted before.

I showed this book I creacked out to Gator recently. It has the WHITEST pages I've ever seen on a 40's comic book. Sun glasses required! :cool:

That's awesome - thanks! I haven't picked that one up yet but I have a good reason to now.

 

I've picked up a bunch of Cole books recently, but here is the latest: YOUNG KING COLE Vol 3 No 11. I hadn't seen this one until recently and found one at a decent price from the UK. I believe Cole did the interior story that goes along w/ the cover. It's hard to tell from the pic but the cover gloss is really nice.

I also grabbed a CRIME FIGHTING DETECTIVE #17 from the same seller. Only a VG copy, but it was worth it. Other semi-recent purchases:

 

- Terrors of the Jungle 17, VG

- White Rider & Super Horse #5, VG

- TRUE-TO-LIFE ROMANCES #16, FN

- SHOCKING MYSTERY CASES # 58 G/VG

- THE OUTLAWS#14 VG/FN 5.0

- CONFESSIONS OF LOVE #12, GD

- BLUE BOLT #120 VG- 3.5

- THE OUTLAWS#10 VG/FN 5.0

 

I'm not sure how many LB Cole covers I have now, but just recently I filled up a small box with only golden age stuff, and LB Cole covers are at least 90% of it! I'm now overflowing! :headbang:

I'll start doing that soon. I've been meaning to hook up my scanner, otherwise I can always take pics quickly with my cel. I've been thinking of getting a few group shots where I have a bunch of issues of a title. For example, all my CONTACT COMICS in one shot, all my STARTLING TERROR TALES in 1 shot, etc...
