Dynamic Comics #19 VF-/VF Very tight copy. Staples are firmly attached. Some interior tanning. Pages are OW to CR/OW. Harley had this copy pegged at a 8.5, but the small tear on the spine, located at the bottom back cover, & some non-colorbreaking light creasing on the lower edge of the back cover prevent me from calling it the same (It seems that the light creasing could possibly be pressed out). Overall, the spine of this book is really sharp & clean. Awesome Ricca cover & Tuska art $1800

Staying with the pre-code theme, I'm gonna shift gears a little for this next listing, with a cool piece of GA Original Art. It's page 29 from Joe Palooka #67 (Harvey, April, 1952). It's a 1 page story titled "Ancient Lands of Mystery". Artist is unknown. It's really a great page that evokes all of the viscous violence from the pre-code era. 20.5" x 14.5" Some toning. Several stains that don't hinder the composition. Some corner edge creases. A "ding" on the upper left edge. A couple spots of white-out correction. Based on the published page, It looks like there was a stat with the story title on the black banner in the upper right, which is no longer there. Overall a sweet piece in Very Good condition $550

The art looks like it could be by Rudy Palais, especially the first and last panels.
