I love the Giant Size books! This would be fun to put this run together like you did.

What grade did they say it was? Looks very sharp. 

Sold as a 7.5 

It was the only one they had (at the time) so I really didn't bother with the Zoom feature.

This was one of my all time favorite books as a kid growing up. I still have my original (read it ragged, and loved every page, over and over again!)

Love this.

I eagle-eyed your lead photo but I don't see GS Superheroes 1 (1973 Spider-Man with man-wolf and Morbius). I've been trying to upgrade mine for years. When I do, I'll trade my old one for an extra GS Captain America if you have it.

Good catch! I accidentally left it out of the photo :( Shame because I have a nice copy. Now I have to retake the photo!!!

Pretty impressive - enjoy the fruits of tour hard work - I can’t recall seeing a full collection ever

I think Colmore man had a full set (or near as damn it)  in 9.8, Heritage auctioned them off last year.

Don't forget about the first appearance of Tigra in Giant-Size Creatures #1! :preach:

A book I have and oddly have never connected in my head to giant size marvels.  Honestly didnt even know there were so many!

Don’t forget those solo Howard the Duck stories in man thing GS 4/5 won’t don’t forget that many of these have insidious marvel value stamps to clip :-)

If you're serious about wanting to read the books, note that only some of these were new stories -- many of them were reprints.  Off the top of my head, G-S FF #4 has the first appearance of the Multiple Man (Jamie Madrox) so if you're an X-Men fan that could be one to focus on.

The Roy Thomas Gil Kane GZ CONAN run is among one of the best of the era IMHO
