Hi everyone,

It's been a looooong time since I've run a sale, so be gentle ;-)

A nice stack of war books coming up today, with a little something for everyone including some things that you don't see every day. First 'I'll Take it' rules.

All sales are guaranteed, and paypal only please. If I can clear these out by the end of the weekend, these will ship out on Tuesday.

Shipping is $8 for one book, $10 for 2, $15 for 3, and beyond that we'll figure it out. Good luck and enjoy the sale!

Shep

Two Fisted Tales 19.  GD

This book is super tough, and something of a classic Kurtzman cover and interior story, ‘Jivaro Death!’ I would grade this a weak GD+/VG-, but it has a story panel cut out of the third (and weakest) story. Not sure if that knocks it out of GD, but I’ll leave that to you. A super affordable way to put a tough war book in your collection and basically at half guide at $28

Capt. Storm 8. CGC 8.5 VF+ (unlsabbed)

Washtone cover and high grade to boot. Awesome book, with old label CGC header still with book. C/OW pages, though I think they went a little hard on the page quality. Wonderful book – nicest copy I’ve seen in many years of collecting.  $50.00  SOLD!!!
