Fantastic books, fantastic achievement - well done!

 

I gave up trying to do the same thing a while ago, so I just have a paltry 40 odd issues from the run.

Wonderful accomplishment Artboy! :applause:It is getting more and more unusual to see collectors complete significant runs like this as our hobby has shifted toward collecting keys and classic covers.

 

Rarely has a truer sentence been written than this - many congratulations to you sir !

 

Hear, hear!

Karl, rarity aside, which is your favorite Planet issue?

 

I love my 48 for the double cover. I also love the black covers. 10 is a favorite. I also love 6. Very hard for me to decide

Congrats on putting this together. I have about 25 issues now, only another 50 or so to go. It feels like I will never get there. Hopefully in the next 10 years I will complete the run.

 

Thank you for sharing!
