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!

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!

      Little Giant Comics OLD SCHOOL COMIC SHOW 
      Here's the deal, I wanted to create the kind of show I would want to attend.
      GREAT COMICS, GREAT ART & ARTISTS!
      I want to enter a room filled with amazing comics, incredible art and talented artists, I don't think that's too much to ask.
      Seems like every show I attend only has a small amount of comic vendors (usually the same 3 or 4 people I see at every show), the rest of the floor is fidget spinners, Cosplay stopping in front of your booth for photo shoots, sweaty ROOT BEER mugs everywhere dripping on your comics or art, Pirates running around, knick knack patty whacks, energy drinks, Ice Cream vendors and flea market fodder........
