I really love the series that were started in 1968. Cap 100 in particular is one of my favorite and they're more affordable than some of the other keys. Hopefully I'll be able to add a Iron Man 1 and Sub-mariner 1 in a few months.

I’ve been looking for a silver surfer #1 mid grade but they’re getting expensive 🙁 I’ve always wanted one since I was in high school in the 90’s.

That’s a good looking Hulk. Some of these like the Nick Fury get no love and are surprisingly affordable compared to the others. 🤷‍♂️

Yeah the Silver Surfer 1 is a tough one to find at an affordable price. It's pretty high on my list before he pops up in the MCU and the price goes even higher.

I would also love to have that Captain  America, what a great cover! All the silver age books are steadily creeping out of my price range, even in lower grades. At least I get to see the ones on the board 🙂

Maybe I’m weird, but I’ve always preferred the series’ starts; for example, Tales To Astonish 60 for Hulk, 70 for Subby, Tales Of Suspense 59 for Cap.

These books don’t seem to be getting love these days, and they’re cheaper!

Your right on that they definitely don't get the love they deserve, though I love the cover on Tales to Astonish 59 over 60. I need to get my TOS 59 cleaned.

Cool group! 1968 was quite the explosion of titles.

I'm missing Subby, Doctor Strange and Iron Man:

When I had my shop, people were willing to spend good money on Iron Man 2 but not Hulk 103.  Nor Captain America 102.  Tales to Astonish and Tales of Suspense were dead, especially the later issues. I tried explaining that Hulk 103 is the second issue of the title, just like Iron Man 2 is the second book in that title. You'd think you were breaking the HRN code from Classics or something.

I had no idea that Hulk 102 relaunched his solo stories until a few months ago. I think the way they kept the numbering system going from TOS and TTA hurt those titles. Same with Dr Strange 169.

The solo stories get re-started in Tales To Astonish 60. Hulk 102 gives the Hulk an entire comic of his own again. Most people like Hulk 102 better. 

 

But not me! :sumo:
