Action 36, Robot cover, and one of my favorites. Another book from the Evelyn Collection.

I believe this is a married centerfold (well maybe it's an engaged centerfold, since it's not attached and it's a double ceremony because there are 2 loose centerfolds.) I'm not certain because the staples line up and the paper seems to be the same color, but they don't match the spine roll, so it's a good possibility

Elwood loved this book;)

There is a very small piece of tape at the top staple and there might be a drop of glue on the tape, there is a little rust on the staples. Paper and pages are very supple and light in the white to maybe OW range. Cover is detached at the top staple and there are tears at the bottom staple. My grading guess on this would be VG- with slight A (because of the glue) I think that could be scraped off. I don't know if more would be deducted for the writing.

I'm not great at interpreting the new resto rules, but a C1 with trimming sold for $300 last Oct, this should be better than that and I don't see trimming.

Bin is $450

Adventure Comics #44, DC, 1039 , From the Evelyn collection

Great cover image, cover is supple. Inside is complete, pages are supple. They are turning tan where the tape is on the spine, otherwise they are in the cream range. Two centerfolds are detached. 
The white tape is probably glued on and there is a spot of white paint on the spine about an inch from the bottom. 

The Sandman cover is by the wonderful Craig  Flessel. 

A book with a completely split cover sold on eBay in Nov for over $600.00

Bin is $550.00

All Star Comics #2, DC 1040, from the "Evelyn" collection.

Let's start with the good stuff, it's complete, pages are in the white range and supple. There is a small piece off the boarder of the 1st wrap (about 1/4" x 1.5") it doesn't affect the art, and it was torn, it's not chipped. The cover is attached. The not the best stuff. It must have had cellophane tape that came off, or was ripped off.  Someone, most probably a child he loved his/her book,  decided to paint red where the tape was on the front and white on the back. I think there is some glue mixed with the paint, the color match is not perfect, but it's better than a lot of books I've seen. There is tape or glue inside on the spine. The funny thing is, it doesn't look like it was split very much.

It's still a great book, with GL, Hourman, Spectre , Hawkman, Sandman, Flash, Johnny Thunder and Red White and Blue. A 3.0 sold last year for more than $1900. I have no idea how they determine the grade of restored books, but I'm guessing, it's about an apparent 3.0 with slight A (no pieces added) Then again, it might be considered something totally other than that, I'm not familiar with the new resto grading system, but I do know this is amateur, not professional.

Bin is $625.00.

Sensation Comics #30, a 10 cent comic book  published by DC  Comics in 1944. Sold to Geezuswalks
 

Many Sensations are scarce, this is one of the last ones I needed to complete my run. 
 Color is excellent, there is a split at the top of the spine, a small piece off the bottom of the spine and a corner crease on the back. Tears at the staple, but the cover is attached. Pages in the W/OW range. Grade is Good+ (2.5), it may be better if pressed.

I had this on eBay at a much higher price, then I put it in my maybe I SHOULD have this pressed and slabbed pile;) I know how hard it is to find and what I had to pay for an upgrade, but I'm going to lower the price here (because I'd rather sell it now of course;) Last recorded sale that I could find anywhere close to the grade was a 4.5 in 2014, but prices have surged in the past 3 years.

Bin is $175

The Blonde Phantom had appearances in the issues 2- 4 of these books. SOLD to Shrevvy.

More adventures with Blackstone the Magician, all stories I enjoyed. 

It's kind of hard to get them straight because they jumped from company to company, but this one was published by EC. 

Blackstone Magician Detective #1, there is a nice Moongirl picture in the back, advertising Moongirl and the Prince #1. 

It's a low grade copy (Obviously) with supple pages (except for the lower right corner). An oddball for EC, for sure, only 1 issue was printed by them. Cover is split about 2 inches and is detached, there is some tanning inside the cover. 

Fair? But not too easy to find. An incomplete sold on eBay recently for $22, I'll ask $40 for a complete copy.58bc386f2d8bb_blackstonedetective1_0001.thumb.jpg.6aa56a7ec97d778a91c93fb839734ecc.jpg58bc3879625a2_blackstonedetective1_0002.thumb.jpg.5231fd7e55f74935ce7d8b1c9b38f805.jpg
