This one was destined to come home with me.  Maybe my favorite Heath war cover, a pedigree, and signed by Russ himself. :cloud9:

that's the same book I have signed by Heath, it's my #1 favorite cover of his all time.... My copy happens to be restored (some color touch on spine, touch ups to the black line to hid some of the spine ticks). I could not care less about it being restored. Your's is great, not every day you see a red pen signature!

That pair of Hero For Hire 1 CGc 7.5 just highlighted why I don't understand the restored marketplace.  A restored copy with minor color touch and glue went for $110 while a blue goes for $299.  So a tiny bit of color touch and glue drops the price by 70%?? 

well thats a notoriously color touched book due to the cover. In the last couple of years its a 40-60% drop range, where BA books (since there are more of them) take a greater hit in the 60-70% range 

and there are plenty of non-restored copies available, so people can easily opt for the non-touched version.

Is there a story about why Hulk (in the pre-code JIM comics) was renamed the Titan in the reprints? I'm assuming it has something to do with our beloved green behemoth being in print.

 

Cool book, btw. I googled this Fantucchio fellow ... seems he had quite the collection.

I think you are correct given the timeline - Xemnu appeared in JIM 62 (11/60)  & 66 (3/61) as "the Hulk".

Once fans latched on to that big mad gray/green dude in May 1962 thru March 1963 (Incredible Hulk issues 1-6), Stan likely wanted to keep the branding focused on the title character.

After that Xemnu is always referred to as 'the Titan" (Marvel Feature 3, IH Annual 5, etc).

I gave that one serious consideration.

He had an amazing collection. I snagged some Batman’s Clink auctioned a while back.

Been trying to curtail my comic-spending lately, but just like the groovy chick on this compelling cover - my absolute favorite among non-Wrightson DC Bronze Age horror and also very HTF in high grade (only one 9.6 copy known) - I couldn't help myself!

I got a rock

Sgt. Rock? For some reason I thought you might have been the high bidder on this one. It was a steal at only $2,255.

The winner made a mistake by giving me time to bid at the end

It’s been a year since I won a book off Comiclink. A Dave Stevens cover you don’t see everyday.

X-Men #11 second print - a book I had been looking for in 9.8 for a while, and got it for a song.

Punisher #100 variant - another book I had been looking for in 9.8, but found it cheaper than anywhere it had sold up until this auction.

Nothing but love for Comiclink.

 Clink can be great like that sometimes. Sometimes you get a book for an absolute steal, others times you can get into a bidding war and end up paying 3x GPA.
