I wish someone would find a picture of Kim Anderson circa 1982 and post that. She knows about the wood pile.

My comics suck, but I could go for a kitten thread!20170413_220029.thumb.jpg.3e241ae72a6faa41fc97b2892b030d7b.jpg

My comics kind of suck too but not all of them.  It is what it is.  Question, why are these EC Archives 300 buck a pop??  I think I will like but wow for 300 I think I could buy poor copies of the 6 books for same price.  I also would like to know if there was ever a slipcover for the sets.  Here is another kitten...

Certain books just immediately transport me back to my 1970's childhood.  It's amazing how that happens.

That's odd, because the comics I have make my depression even worse. I've had to put them in boxes and throw them in the utility room. I can't stand to see them. If they were worth anything I'd sell them.

I still want to know who Cap was talking to.

Looks like Cap's having to shout very loudly over lots of extremely deafening gunshots, which, IIRC, can be over 150 decibels.

At least Kirby's being scientifically accurate on that point.

I thought this was a tell all about depression.:sorry:

when I first saw the title-- I thought this might be a thread about Depression era comic books and collecting. Early thirties GA titles. Not sure how much interest there has ever been in those books though-- actually, I just don't know much about that era in general.

But the OP is right-- it is fun to look at scans of books and collections. The best is when you see one you need to fill a run or one you might have bought/still have. And the gore filled EC stuff is very interesting.
