Do you collect Centaurs?

Do you like Centaurs?

Have you heard of Centaurs?

Is there already a thread on Centaurs that I missed?

Post them if you've got them!

Here is my Arrow #3. Paul Gustavson cover and art. Hitler cover.

So nobody owns any Centaur Comics?

You own them, but you haven't gotten around to posting them?

Am I going to be in here posting them all by myself?

Amazing Mystery Funnies V2#7, first appearance of the Fantom of the Fair. Cover and art by Paul Gustavson.

Funny Picture Stories #1, Centaur (actually Comics Magazine at the time), November, 1936.

Here is ComicConnect's description when they auctioned off Jon Berk's copy:

"Published the same month as Funny Pages #6, this issue contains one of the two first appearances of the Clock, who is considered by many to be the bridge that connects the pulp magazines of the 20s and 30s to the newborn comic book industry. The first comic character to hide his identity with a mask, the Clock was a master of disguise and a hypnotist, who had the additional benefit of massive personal wealth that allowed him to build gadgetry and a hidden lair, obviously becoming an influence on Batman and many other superheroes inspired by the mysterious crime-fighter. The historical importance of this comic cannot be overlooked, as it is basically ground zero for cape books, a key Golden Age book, and a major chapter in the story of the industry."
Per Heritage Auctions: Named one of the "50 Rarest Golden Age Comics" by Comic Book Marketplace. The Clock was the very first masked comic book hero."

Funny I saw that book posted at Metro at some point last year. It didnt even have a scan but I knew I had to own it. Turns out the highest grade is a 9.0 which I believe is this book someone tried to CPR and it was never removed from the census as there are scans of this book at HA in an old school holder at 9.0

Another interesting point is there are 2 other 8.5's on the census. I'd be interested to see what those books look like. Hawkeyes are beasts and I doubt the other copies measure up (or maybe they are resubs of the same book?)

@the420bandito Yes, that would be interesting to see, as the two other notable copies recently sold (Jon Berks and 'Gator' from the CGC Boards were 6.5 and 7.5 respectively. And they are notable Centaur enthusiasts, like @circumstances now a poster here
