A few new additions to the Planetarium. ;)

The 19 has a wicked spine split that really hurts the grade, but this is the best looking VG'ish book I own.

All great but that 19 is awesome!! I love books that look like that with a hidden major flaw. Great bang for the buck!

It sure did!  I mentioned that I thought he looked familiar, then realized I recognized him from photos of The Leader's con reports, which you're also in! :hi:

That's a true statement.  I saw more books on my wantlist at his booth than I've seen at the last 6 cons I've attended.  His inventory is incredible.  Pricey, but very willing to negotiate, and you won't find a friendlier guy.

Gene is also a walking encyclopedia of comics, I am pretty sure he will be at Baltimore, he always does the monthly Shoff Shows here in the DC area, if any of you are quasi local and have not done the Tysons or Annandale shows they are pretty good.

I saw him at the Annandale Shoff show.  That place is fantastic, and was very unexpected.

I dont think so, his business is All-American Comics, he always has the most amazing wall selection only exceeded by what he keeps under the table so always ask.

Thanks Vern!

I while I love the colors I wish it was a higher structural grade as well. Don't like the dust shadow and the missing chips out of the cover.

Oh well, it is a keeper.
