IMG  RANGERS #21    PAC (200 dpi)         .jpg

Red-blooded adventure in its purest form.

I know you bought a fair number of strip reprints or comics based on you favorite radio shows. Had there been more content like that Rangers on the newsstands, would you have bought it or were you as satisfied with Jack Amstrong as with Rangers?

Now that’s a dime well spent Marty! Curious why you picked that one that day? A little different than the ones you usually post.

As I might have mentioned before, I was able to read a lot of FICTION HOUSE COMICS at my local barber shop so I felt I would spend my dime

on other comics that were not available for free reading.

I remember buying that book at the Greyhound Bus Station at a stop-over in Baltimore on a trip from Washington, DC to Philadelphia.

I don't think there was to good a selection on the rack and this was a FICTION HOUSE COMIC that I hadn't read in the barber shop.

(thumbsu Great taste at the barber shop :)

Years later, I tried to read comics at the news dealer ... it didn't go well, let's just say that. My mom took me to with her to get my hair cut so no luck there with the reading material. Wish my dad had taken me instead.

I was lucky...we had an apartment on the third floor over the Barber Shop.

This is the only book I've ever purchased from Gary Dolgoff, off ebay, despite seeing his adds in the OPG for years and years ...he called it a stricly graded vg/f.  Again I defer to the experts.

Nice book. I used to buy from him at shows. I found he was always a strict grader and a great guy to deal with.

Congrats on the #2.  Was watching it intending to bid but missed the end time and I think it was a pretty great steal, even with the issues.  Nice work!

Hey gang

just wanted to drop in and show you my new book. I'm so giddy right now. This was one of those books that not a lot of folks will understand how tough it is to acquire. I'm not going to hit you with any cgc data because there isn't much lol I honestly I thought I would of found this book in the next 2-3 years but thanks to the fiction house gods this low grade copy popped up on ebay and I was extremely happy to have won it. I want to thank a few members who I have reached out to educate me on the scarcity of this book. Thank you to @Tsp99  @Drgoldage @walclark and a special thank you to @kelholt for all his knowledge on the book.

 

well here it is

I automatically think of this meme when I posted this

Serious question, is this the rarest of all Fiction House books?

Love this Zolnerowich cover! Well done!
