I am happy to say I have added an original art page to my Planet Comics collection. No not the Planet Comics #1 page :ohnoez:but I did win this page. Some great panels definitive of Planet Comics:

Love it!

Oddly relevant philosophy from a funny book.

I like how the villain 'scours the universe' in a single panel!

Probably he can scour all bathtubs in a single panel too.

The colors just jumped out at me.  So, I had to have it!

This copy's indicia states the publication date as Winter 1953.  CGC slab data (via CBCdata.com) indicates that this should be 1952 BUT there is also a listing for the 1953 date.  Chronologically, it should be Winter 1952.

Question:  Are there 2 variants/flavors for this issue?

Thanks!

Forgot to post these at home base, but then I'm not the only one! Just paid, so I guess it will be up to a month before they reach me here in the UK....

I am both happy for you and sour that I lost the #5. Well I take solace in knowing it went to a good home.

Is no big deal, I really am happy it went to a friend. I already have a 5 as well, I am always looking to upgrade.

Grats!

Thanks Rick. In your uncanny way, you will probably have #1-73 in about 3 weeks!
