Hey Gang. I got eight early Action Comics coming up today. Starting with #26. Be fore warned, these are all low grade but affordable copies. You high grade guys can just move along now. But, you poor schmoos like me who just want to own some early Superman might just want to stick around...

Rules:

No problem children or HOS members.

Postage is $5.00 each for up to two comics, very well packaged. I will combine postage on multiple purchases. All will come with tracking. 

I prefer to sell only to US addresses but might make an exception if I know you.

PM's and offers... I am trying to sell this stuff and want to get as much listed as I can. I try to price fairly. I probably won't have a lot of time to review PMs if I want to get this stuff listed. An "I'LL TAKE IT" icon takes it first. So, keep that in mind if you want something. When I get done, I will review PMs (in order of when they came in). If you have a question (other than a lower offer) post it and I will try to answer you.

Payment is by PayPal within 3 days FIRM. I will also take checks and money orders if you let me know after I send you an invoice.

Returns: No hassle returns within two weeks from when tracking says it was delivered. Return postage is on you unless I make a gross error and in that case I will "man-up" and pay return postage. I don't expect any returns though as I've only had 3 or 4 in 40 years. 

This stuff all comes from a smoke filled, varmit infested, mouldy junk house. (Just kidding!) Here we go...

Many back covers have full of ads. Probably that was the reason of the missing back covers.

I used to have 25 GA Adventure Comics from the same owner - four back covers were neatly cut. Left 1/2 inch left on the back cover from the spine. Amazingly no detached cover or tape.
