I dont know which issue or series it is from but does have a cool factor IMHO

Looks like it might have been taken from the daily newspaper strip. It is a very cool find.

Got this yesterday, Brazilian TEC 38 from 1941

I've always been curious about how the process worked when it came to these kinds of GA books showing up in other non-English speaking countries (like Brazil) ... How did DC go about accomplishing this? The book would have been printed right in Brazil, or elsewhere (New York, and then sent south)?  How different (if at all) are the panel layouts compared to the US version?  Would the stories have been altered, or perhaps lost a little in translation? Different stories altogether?

I think they where printed in Brazil Rio de Janeiro by  Grande Consórcio Suplementos Nacionais , probably someone from DC was living at Brazil at that time so they printed it very close to the US dates . Here`s a pic of the insides, they used B&W

Yeah, seems pretty common to get the LT designation even when the covers seem more or less white.  Makes you wonder if you resubmitted, whether the pq roulette might result in a CR-OW. 

Hmm. Page quality as a game of roulette. Seems about right to me.

Picked this up last week.  Love the date stamp in the T of Two.  I'm not typically into war covers but I've always thought this was one of Davis' best.  This is a Jim Payette 3.0 by the way.

I purchased a Payette Batman 49 as a VG+ that CGC graded a 7.0. Of course I no longer have it.  :sorry:

This was my first purchase (Bought a couple of books) with Jim and it was great.  He's a good guy and his grading is obviously incredibly strict.  Definitely the strictest grader I've come across.  Needless to say I will be a returning customer.
