I'm a Black Widow fan, and this is her first appearance as the Black Widow I know(her early appearances in TOS were horrible). Plus, this is one of my favorite Romita covers and ASM is my favorite title, not to mention that perfectly centered copies of this issue in grade don't come around that often and always command a premium when they do. Plently of reasons for me to pay silly money for duplicates. grin.gif

I passed on the Metro one because some of the Bostons are 9.2s not 9.4s but the page quality on all of them is beautiful, so I'm sure you got a sweet book.

 

Page quality and, at least in my (limited) experience, cover color. Inks just jumped off the cover of the Boston Caps I had. cloud9.gif

100 Bullets #10 courtesy of Crisco. I mentioned I was missing it in another thread and Chirs mailed me one of his extras -- no charge. Major props to Chris. thumbsup2.gif

thumbsup2.gif That is a sweet cover, and it seems to fall in the Avengers 93 category as far as finding one well centered.

I enjoyed that whole story arc, and would love to own a OA page of the Black Panther breaking the Red Skulls jaw.

 

I'm missing a few issues but I should get them shortly. That Avengers run sure did have some cool covers.

What did Ted grade that TOS #48???

 

Eric

 

He gave it an 8.5. I wouldn't grade it quite that high but it's a nice book.

Wow, I guess so. I need all of those frustrated.gif

 

Here are a couple of others that arrived this week. I wish I knew how to properly scan/manipulate these Harvey's to do them justice. The color is remarkable.

True. Thanks to Rip, I just got my hands on a tough book that I've been looking for for some time.

To true about the networking, as Ariach found out I was in the hunt for some more Swampy # 1, and instead of getting one off him, I took both he had to part with, as he accepted my offer.

Just arrived tuesday from Heritage... #91 is damn hard to find and under valued. #85 was just a good deal. There would be more, but a chunk of money just went out for a commissioned repro of the #91 cover.
