I LOVE date stamps. This one is especially well placed. And pedigreed no less!

I am not a huge fan of the mid-run issues. For me, 1-35 are great for the most part, and so are 65-73. There are about 5 exceptions to that rule and 53 is one of them! Very nice.

I love 53. Bondage cover, used in Soti..what's not to love?

So, does anyone here collect the Planet Stories pulps? I honestly no nothing at all about pulps or the market for them, but I’m curios given that Planet Comics came from Planet Stories, at least in the beginning. Any insights into the quality of the art? Collectibility? Prices/values? Thanks

I was offered the #1 pulp by a fellow board member and had the copy been in slightly better condition I might have purchased it.

(I have a soft spot for 44 and 51 too)

Wow. I said there were 5 and you guessed them all.  I would be impressed if I wasn’t a bit freaked out.

Thanks to Artboy99, I now have (or soon to have, when delivered) 4 more Australian versions of PLANET COMICS.

Anyone else out there that has the AUSTRALIAN versions and are willing to sell?

That presents astonishingly well for the given grade.

But those number 50 issues have Mysta of the Moon by Matt Baker. Also some Evans and Kamen as well I believe. Gotta look inside!

I totally agree. I highly recommend that people read them. I know some people don't read comic books, which I do not understand at all, but some of the stuff in there is ground  breaking on the sci-fi front for the time. You can even see influences which shaped some of the modern classic films we have how. There's actually some Star Wars references for example which George Lucas obviously stored away and used many years later.

Comic books are for reading  :sumo:

Enjoy them!! rantrant

I wonder if the preference of cover also is influenced by the book you own?

For example: I used to think issue 48 is just an average cover, BUT I absolutely love my copy and it ranks very high within my own Planet collection.

Anyone else feel the same?

 

 

That book ticks a number of boxes.

1. Amazing condition

2. Great colour density.

3. Robot cover.

4. Double Cover

5. Quirky 'out-of-register' copy.

What's not to like?

Great find by you, a Pedigree is always a plus.

About as nice a 4.5 as you would see or hope for.  Buy the book not the number :preach:

^^ If I owned that copy I would definitely feel the same.

Oh boy, 48 is pretty great too. And I also love 36, which is drawn with similar perspective.

Ditto. The art in between the covers rivals the covers. Shame that humans ever invented plastic.
