This is wrong. DC books had bar codes on books cover dated May, 1976. First Marvels with bar codes were cover dated June, 1976.

I'm with you lol

I thought there might have been a "start" date but wasn't sure what it was. Seems as though I've heard about this eb ay seller before in eBay threads. It's a pretty gutsy listing....
