At Adamstrange's request, let's have a thread posting our favorite SA books with 10 cent covers! What's that you say, that would eliminate every Marvel superhero book except for FF 1 & 2? Gee, what a horrible coincidence! devil.gif

 

I'll start off with a few favorites, which I've posted before because my scanner is down and I haven't been able to make any new scans in a while:

 

Flash 111 (CGC 9.4, OW-W)

Showcase 34 (CGC 9.4, OW)

 

684148-Showcase34.jpg

 

Green Lanter 1 (CGC 9.4, OW-W)

 

721230-gl1.jpg

 

And last but not least, a Redhook masterpiece I like to call Legion Psychedelico

Since no one else seems to care about your lame DC thread, I will help you out, buddy. Here is one of my DC 10-centers. It's a recent purchase from the LCS, where I paid the princely sum of $35 for it. yay.gif

 

Adventure Comics #289 (Legion Cameo) FFB 8.5 OW pages.

Here are a couple of 10-centers from Liz's scuba collection. (Perhaps we should call this thread attack of the killer mutant CCA stamps? Those stamps were BIG when they first started using them!)

 

Showcase #3 FFB 3.0 CR-OW pages:

Showcase #27 (First App. Sea Devils) FFB 2.5 CR-OW pages:

Very cool book and great price. yay.gif

 

I'll see what 10 cent issues I have when I get home. I could bore you with about 20 HG Atlas books, but I think I have a few DC's (since that seems to be the real topic of this thread).

your post inspired me to break out my 15 issue run of Adventure beginning with #279 in December 1960 to # 293 in february 1962.

 

here are 6 of those 10centers from that run. the run is mostly VG - Fine and includes the 5th, 9th and 13th Legion appearances. #283 contains the last Congorilla story and #284 contains the last Aquaman in Adventure. (they advertise his concurrent appearance in Showcase).

 

i have boxes of these mid-grade early 60's DCs.......... cloud9.gif

Of course Burntboy is likely the only one here who actually paid 10¢ for the books he posts.

Here is a missing image from Burntboy's run of Adventures. This one features the first appearance of Bizarro Mxyzptlk.

And so that we don't insult other members of the Bizarro family, here is the first appearance of Bizarro Krypto!

Can you imagine being a real person and have a comic book use your character! Must have been a real thrill.

One of my favorites, though not a 10 cent-er, is Action #309, which features President Kennedy helping Superman protect his secret identity. The issue was on the stands in late December 1963, just one month after JFK was assassinated.

While we're talking about 10-centers, you really owe it to the thread to post the scan of your Showcase #4 again. cloud9.gif

 

P.S. Those Bizarro covers rule! I love the Bizarro-Mxyzptlk cover! 27_laughing.gif Bizarro stories are just about the only things from the early silver age that are still as amusing in the present day as they were back then. 893applaud-thumb.gif
