Hi Jay, it’s an older book I finally decided to slab - got it from Payette decades ago. Also Planet 16 and 24 and 27...

Ah, back in the days of the Giants, when high-grade Planets grew on trees for the plucking!!

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, these boards are awesome!

It’s been a weird month of second chance books for me.

Planet Comics #5!  Arrived today.  Less than 11 months ago I purchased my first Planet Comics book ever, a copy of issue 11.  Now I have a full set of “rivet” issues with the arrival of #5 today!

I’ll probably try to post a pic of all 22 together soon. I just love these books.

I don't think there were that many hi-grade Planets available even back around 1975. Was just happy to pick up this Planet that still had original cover lustre on the black cover at this late stage:

Wow, that Planet 36 has great looking colors!!! (worship)

Usually a very drab color strike on this book.
