It's full and it's whitey-white :cloud9: 

(the discoloration is just the paper texture)

I have Detective Comics, and Superman.

I should also note that I'm looking for already-CGC'd copies.

Action Comics will be difficult to find since there are only 2 on the census. I may have to put up a bounty.

@TwoPiece do you just collect legit #666's?? Or would Milk and Cheese #6 be of interest to you?

This was precisely why I asked what's on the list

just wondering if this happens to anyone else. I collect Marvel Value Stamps. I learned some time ago that there is color variants of the stamps so I have been collecting them. I am down to needing 2, one of which just happens to be in Giant Sized Fantastic Four #4. I dont care at all about some multiple man character i want the book for the stamp, but because the book is considered a key and i want to complete my collection i will have to shell out hundreds of dollars. 

Happen to anyone else? Collecting something but not for the reason everyone else is?

For me it's FOOM #2.  As a Steranko cover collector it's been on my list.  But not that it's the 'first appearance of Wolverine' it's out of my range.

It's real and it's great. Every issue of this series is a gem. 

This is genuinely laugh-out-loud funny

:p

That's just as stupidly bad as the example I provided.

I used to chase the Boy Commandos appearances in Detective Comics. Had 64 and 65 once, but 66? No way!

I'm currently debating whether I want to throw together a Vampire Tales run, but Satana's first appearance in issue 2 is pricier than I'd like and that's put me off the whole endeavor.

That's similar to what I go through as a run collector. One day, a complete drek book that I haven’t picked up yet zooms into the stratosphere due to movie hype. 

I didn't know GSFF #4 was still a thing; I thought it already blew over.

 

It's hard being a run collector these days.

The whole reason I started collecting was at the young age of 3 my older brother would give them to me and I loved the artwork. I didn't even know "collectors" existed yet
