Tales to Astonish #55 also GVG but more 3.5+ than mid-3.0 that the range implies. Another sweet date stamp. :news: SOLD! ($15)

I see some of my pix are blurrier than I realized. If you need a re-shoot on anything, just ask.

FUN FACT: The original owner who sold me these books said Giant-Man was his favorite growing up, and he was disappointed that Marvel was not able to make more of him. This is completely unimportant on the one hand, but on the other it's cool as all h-e-double hockey sticks to know, and I wish there was a data repository somewhere with this sort of stuff about original owners. I wonder what Edgar Church thought was the coolest thing coming off the racks in the '40's?

Tales to Astonish #58. I'm going to call it a G due to some spine splitting, oddly, between the staples, though not reaching either one. But flat and clean, with a superior date stamp. :news: SOLD! ($10)

Okay, key time...Tales to Astonish #59 VG. First Hulk in title, first mention of Hulk getting stronger as he gets madder. Classic Marvel slugfest vs Giant-Man. Just look at that date stamp! :cloud9:  :news: SOLD! ($50)

Seriously, this is one I will miss as I love my copy and this one is nicer, but I read it too often to keep ia nice one, and I can't keep everything from this batch.

Tales to Astonish #60. My notes say 2.0; I think I went G mostly due to the rusting at the lower staple, which is attached at back cover only. Hulk gets his own series. :news: SOLD! ($15)

Tales to Astonish #61 GVG. First Glenn Talbot, plus an interesting android baddie that seems like a Vision prototype. (OSPG says 1st Mailbag, too) :news: SOLD! ($10)

Tales to Astonish #65 GVG the new Giant-Man, with art by Bob Powell inked by Don Heck. :news: SOLD! ($15)

Extra cool fact: the original owner filled out but did not clip the coupon on the Mighty Marvel Marching Society ad page, which is how I determined the collection was amassed in Springfield, Mass.

Tales to Astonish #82 GVG $5

Great Iron Man vs Subby slugfest. (If you've never read this, it's jarring in a cool way. First two pages drawn by Gene Colan, the rest by Kirby, because Colan got sick. Different as night and day; reminds me of the first time I heard the Traveling Wilburys, with vocals transitioning from Roy Orbison to Bob Dylan and Tom Petty.)

Oh man... These date stamps are really cool. They just missed a couple of family members' birthdates.

Hang on...maybe 2/3 of the books to go; we might hit those dates yet! (thumbsu
