A fairly recent pick up.

This is that one-off "What if Hitler was a cow poacher?" issue!

You know, as soon as I saw the guy with the orange top, I thought that if this were a WW II scene, the book would be on the "arguably a Hitler cover" list.  The "arguably a Hitler cover list" is to the "Hitler cover list" as the "Hall of the Pretty Good" is to the "Hall of Fame" in baseball. :)

This might be my favorite cover from that run.  Nice copy.

Glad that the science in this one is true. 

I was trapped in an electric eye the other day.  The eye was my wife's as she contemplated the dough I spend on comics.

Is Toby the company with the hardest books to locate?  It would be interesting -- but very tough, I think -- to try to accumulate a complete set of their books.

Yes, but in baseball the Hall of Pretty Good and the Hall of Fame have become indistinguishable.  :shy:

But Harold Baines was a feared slugger in his day, I tell ya!  :sumo:

Honestly, if Baines's mother is still alive, I have a feeling she would agree that the only way Harold should get in the Hall is by buying a ticket.

Reeled this one in the other night. Aside for being a Hitler cover it boasts the baddie the Hun, monsters, bondage, and 2 separate axis powers about to get thwomped by the Wizard and Shield. Great first splash imo and the Reiman Wizard splash is also very cool. This book also on a side note contains an add for Archie Comics #1. All around neat-o if I do say so myself...

What a score Gino! And a sweet bonus sharing the splash pages. The Wizard splash is :cloud9:
