Interesting. That would really be cool to know. Fir myself, I love the books with names on the cover. It is such great history.


Interesting, I have an Avengers #11 with Danny Langley written across the top. I'll try to get an image of it up on here today. Related maybe, father and son???

Here's the book with Danny Langley's name on it. Not only that, it has Stan Lee's autograph too. Interesting piece of history.

That is very cool. That is definitely a great comic to own.

Now for something a little diffrrent. Two NM copies of book 1 of the 1948 flip comics series. These are hard to find without being damade from thumbs flipping through them. Can CBCS grades these is the real question?

@Badger I think the Disney ones are likely more abundant than the ceral tom and jerry ones, since the Disney ones were sold at Disney gift shops. Going to see if they can grade these since high grade ones are tougher to get.

@earthshaker01 I think you are right. There are no Tom and Jerry flip books on eBay while there are examples of both of our Disney flip books.

She here is some crazy s**t. So I collect mini comics as well as all the other GA#1's and dell stuff, right. Well someone might appreciate this.
So in the past I think I posted this pic of some recently graded 1948-50 Vital-wisco books. Here is the pic again of a few I got back. Notice the Wacky Quack specifically. The scroll down.



So I recently got 6 copies of these uncut mini comics in gorgeous shape. They came from an estate sale originally must have been someone who stashed them away that worked at publisher. Here are a couple of them.






Next question is can CBCS grade these? Unheard of books right?

@earthshaker01 - obviously the width is okay, so if the length is the same as a normal comic, there shouldn't be a problem.

@esaravo true. I think they will be okay. It will be interesting to see what the label says when I get them back.

Awesome book. I have a couple of those in high grade. They don't come up too often. Nice pick up. Here is one of mine.

I'm glad I joined the "club" you're in. It's a great looking book, but has a few spine dents on the back cover. I'm debating having it pressed, but don't know if I should risk a spine split on this 69 year old cover.

@Darkga I press GA books all the time and have never split a spine. It should be safe

Funny, like there are no Disney 'Super-Book of Comics' issues, i don't think there are any Warners 'Flip Books' like these....

@Sagii Interesting. I had never noticed super book of comics before. I take it they were like March of Comics?

@Badger Hey buddy, yeah they were, but more harder to find for some issues than the MOC series. Even collector Robot Man who has seen many a collectible says he hasn't come across them ( a regional distribution issue?)
There were two series: Omar Bread editions and Hancock oil (reprints of the Omar books) except the last issue featuring Bugs Bunny which according to Overstreet is not. I've never seen the cover for this book posted anywhere I'm beginning to think it doesn't exist. It's become my 'white whale'.

@Sagii To my failing memory, I have never seen them and I love books like that. I'll have to keep my eyes open for them. Were they East Coast only?

@Badger That was a theory he threw out, so it's very plausible. I'll post some later tonight

Ok, so these had 8 Looney Tunes issues in the Omar editions (I am two issues from completing the sub set). I still need #2 and #30. #6 with the Porky cover and four ducks that look an awful lot like a certain duck and his nephews was the first one i acquired.

This one is tied for highest grade examples in my set with #18 (my copy is in a PGX slab so it won't show up here. This is issue #14

This Elmer Fudd issue is a fave. Such a 'Fall' cover, my favorite time of year
