I would keep every book that comes may way if I could, but I need to make some room for more additions... such is life. This is my first attempt of selling comics on the boards, although I’ve purchased items from various members here. So if I make an error somewhere, please contact me directly.

Here’s the fine print:

CONUS only, unless we have agreed on other arrangements ahead of time.

No PL/Hall of Shamers, or probies. The first “Take” wins. I definite "I'll take it" in the thread trumps pending negotiations. I'm sure most of you know the routine.. Please review photos carefully and ask any questions beforehand.

I accept check, money order, or add 3% for Paypal.

Payments must be made within 7 days or the item goes back up for sale. If you have been nominated for probation for non-payment in the past, I will require payment within 24 hrs.

Unless a different method is agreed upon beforehand, shipping will be USPS $10 for raw books, $18 for slabbed, with both insurance and signature required (buyer pays insurance on full value) . 

Returns are fine within 7 days of receipt for raw books, but Buyer must cover return costs, and items must be returned in their original condition. No returns on slabbed comics.

Matt Baker Lot. 
 

1. The Wartime Romances displays vibrant colors and features multiple Baker babes. VG

2. Pictorial Love Stories -a solid Fine, just a really nice copy that has a couple small pieces out of the front cvr (does not run through book.)

3. Fightin’ Marines - Vg-Fine. A solid copy featuring Canteen Kate in the sidebar. 
 

4. Cinderella Love features and awesome winter scene. Unfortunately the spine is completely split, both front and back covers are completely detached.

Undercover Girl #5, features a reverse bondage cover and a badass gal with a gun. 
 

I’d say this should fall in the Fine range, albeit with noticeable oxidation/discoloration on the top staple and a few spots on the bottom staple as well.

Undercover Girl 5 $425  NOW $400!

Chilling Tales 13 has nice eye appeal but the book was apparently manufactured with one staple (which is rusty), and the cover is completely detached (the spine is not split, so at least there’s that.)

note: there is migration on the cvr around where the staple pulled through.

A decent reader or starter copy.

Chilling Tales with detached cvr.

$300

This provocative sex-robot-operated-by-an-alien cover for Amazing Adventures 4 seems just weird enough to be on any genre collector’s list. 
 

Amazing Adventures 4. VG-minus - obvious rip on right front, small spine split, small tears back cvr, multiple stress lines . $400

Well, that's  going to be it for now. If these find new homes, I will post a bunch more.

In the meantime, feel free to make an offer, especially if you're interested in multiple lots.

Anyone who purchases multiple items will get first crack at some other nice pre-code comics...

First up we have a brutal war cover by Matt Baker. The front presents better than the grade, in my opinion, but there is a small piece missing from the back cover that keeps it down. 
 

I think this book has yet to receive the recognition it deserves. 
 

Approved Comics 11 $550

Here are two great copies of Spellbound, with the star of the show being #3 with an awesome cover by Russ Heath.

Spellbound 3 has the eye-appeal and colors of a comic in the Fine range, but I’m calling it a VG due to an unfortunate spine split from the top corner down to the top staple and some damage to the bottom left corner. It nevertheless looks awesome in a Mylite, and looks far nicer than most examples of this book.

Spellbound 29 is VG/F in its own right. A solid copy.

Not sure how to price these two...

$700 for the pair.
