There's something about those German comics that are just cool!!! I only have a handful of German editions, no Avengers, but I like them!
Those are West Germany editions. I hope the weren't trimmed and taken from bound volumes. That's quite a score though!


@NScott When you say West Germany, do you have knowledge of mainstream comics being published in the Eastern Bloc countries? If there were, I would imagine that it would be underground since the various socialist/communist governments controlled the media and wouldn't want anything critical to be said of the system. A brief Google search seems to populate Stripburek as the most popular search result. Just curious. Thanks!

Yes! But East Germany only published a single children's comic series but international editions of that were published in many countries outside of East Germany. Most collectors have been referring to German comics incorrectly as far as region/country goes. So the 3 Germany's explained = It's only GERMANY if prior to 1945 or after Oct. 1990. After 1945, there is no Germany so comics were published in WEST GERMANY from 1945-Oct. 1990 and 1 series in EAST GERMANY called Mosaik. In 1990, when unified we're back to comics being published in GERMANY.

This is no different from clarifying those series/publishers for comics in CZECHOSLOVAKIA and after the split in SLOVAKIA and CZECH REPUBLIC. I only recently realized this myself but it means all the grading of comics in German language published between 1945-1990 were, in fact, labelled wrong as far as country goes. We're collectively learning something all the time! I think I'll post on German comics now!

Germany was divided in 1945 into 2 countries: West Germany and East Germany. The comics you have were published in West Germany.

East Germany did publish one original series, which surprisingly was distributed and sold in many parts of Western Europe.

Comics that were published in Germany when it was a unified country are either pre 1945 or post 1992.

If anyone is wondering about the condition of the foreign edition comics market, here is a good CBSI article on it. If foreign comics interest you in the least, you should read this. A lot of prices are mentioned in it. Everything from the Filipino ASM 300 (of which only about 35 copies are known to exist), to non-canon Spider-Man, to Golden Age Brazilian comics are talked about.
