Howdy page sniffers!
Well,  I may finally be seeing  the light  at the end of the tunnel.   My Beloved and  I got  our  first  Covid vaccinations  yesterday, with the 
second  due  March 24th.  A couple  small  shows  locally  have opened back up, half  capacity,  masks  mandatory. We might actually 
be  able to come out  from underneath  a yearlong lockdown  in  a couple months!  Cat and I locked down  last year on  March 10, 
and  it's been post office,  doctor,  pharmacy and bank for me,  with  bank  and  pharmacy  being  drive thru,  and grocery store for Cat, 
and  except for  a  couple  invitation  buying trips,  masked and gloved,  that's been  about it!

February  was  brutal here in Michigan, subzero temperatures at night,   teens for daily  highs,  and  a buttload of snow after a warm and 
open  January,  we've got  cabin fever like you  wouldn't  buh-LEEVE. 

So to while  away  the last dregs of February,  I've rooted around in the Basement Crypt of Comics  and  come up  with  yet another mixed grille.
Couple  pulps,   some western  digests,   mixed grille  of  comics including a SA  key or two, and even  a couple more  Atlas books. 

I'll  probably  run this  for about five days,  maybe  six,   I don't want to work TOO hard during  Cabin Fever  Season, :D

DA RULEZ

I'll put up a big scan of the FC,  note anything else I spot,  and as always,  if you'd like a scan 
of the  back cover I'll be happy to  supply it.

Shipping to USA preferred, but if you want something sent to Canada or overseas PM me 
and we'll work something out. 
 
:TAKEIT:  rules the roost,  but PM's, kibitzing,  and general tomfoolery  are welcome.

$8.50  Priority shipping to the USA for one to  four comics, well packed in a padded  envelope.   
$15.50 boxed  Priority  for  larger quantities.  Canada or overseas to be determined.

 
CHECK OR MONEY ORDER  PREFERRED, I just plain out don't like paypal.   

If you just GOTTA pay with paypal  PM me first and we'll work something out.

Returns for any reason on your dime,  and  for any missed major  flaw or bad description on my dime.

Spider The Master of Men!  V24 #1,  June  1941

You can see the  bit upper  RH  folded over,   I thought it would be  good to show the tear...and of  course the piece fell off  when  I 
tried to rebag it, lol  Piece included of course. Bit of  spine roll,  fair sized corner off lower  RH BC. 
Page 6,  the first of two editorial pages  has  a good  half page torn out,  see the pix. Split  upper spine along  BC.
Still,  it's  a  Spider pulp, stories  are complete,  and  the cover is  juicy. Cops to the left,  Robbers to the right,  and OUR HERO
fights his way  through to  rescue the leggy damsel!

Asking  $35
