My one win from the CC Berk Extravaganza: Planet 14

 

As most most Planet collectors can attest, just owning a 14 is special so condition can sometimes be secondary.  This one is second highest graded behind the Church copy, and I have no hope that book will be available in the next decade or I could afford. Happy to say that in hand it looks just as good or better than the scans. It has a true purplish background where a majority of Planet 14's have a blue background.

Way to go Kelly, that's a fine funny book! :applause:

Yowzal! Fantastic book, Kelly, one of my favorite Zolnerowich covers, and so hard to come by! Wonderful colors on your copy. (thumbsu

This cover always reminds me of the cowardly lion in the Wizard of Oz, though these tomahawk-wielding lion aliens ain't very cowardly.

Not only is this a Top Ten Planet Comics cover (by Maurice Whitman) for me, it's slowly become a favorite overall... 1950's sci-fi at its best. :cloud9:

Definitely one of my favorite Planet covers too. A great looking copy.

This is indeed a great copy, but your memories of childhood are questionable  :insane:

 That cover has really grown on me. I just got my copy back from being pressed today.  Not quite as nice as that one though.

I always thought this cover had an old B movie poster look about it. Just so incredibly awesome classic 50s sci fi.
