Or if you are me, you wish you never removed the ads from your comic as a kid. My MJV are in high grade minus my careful extraction of the ad. 🤦🏻‍♂️

Ouch! The folly of youth...

I learned a lesson on the vagaries of bound volumes recently. I almost passed on this bound Looney Tunes collection covering the year 1960. It is volume 19, covering issues 219-230. I already have in my collection a volume 19, but the issue numbers are 217-228. The new volume has a rounded spine, while the other volume has what is called a “floating spine”, a different binding type used for volumes that would receive heavier usage. When I looked into the reason for the discrepancy in issue numbers I found that back around 1959 Dell decided to change their binding schedule to go by calendar year. Previous LT sets were bound Nov-Oct, not Jan-Dec. However, Western Publishing was a massive enterprise, with many physical locations across the country. The policy wasn’t universally implemented in an expedient fashion throughout the company, meaning that there were 2 variations on the 1959 sets. The rounded spine (editorial) sets for 1959 contain all the 1959 issues plus Nov and Dec 1958. The floaters for that year contained only Nov-Oct 1958/ 1959, same with the 1959/60 sets. The biggest problem is that by 1961 everyone was compliant with the updated policy, so ALL of the Vol. 20s (the final volume of the run) contain issues 231-242. In other words, if I didn’t pick up this rounded spine set, my bound collection would be forever missing issues 229 and 230. Sorry if that explanation was a bit long. On to the good stuff!

This was an anniversary gift from my wife. I remember this storyline from 1988 and thinking, that this was pretty a intense storyline. I was not collecting comics at the time but some storylines were worth paying attention to. I would consider this storyline a milestone in the comics world. Jim Starlin at his best.

I've had my eye on this one, finally found it at a great price. Classic Jim Lee cover.





This one was just an awesome book from 1964.

Freshly BACK in my collection. I'm a little surprised the other guy didn't change mag slabs and labels over time like the rest of their books but hey, where else was I going to send it?

Thank you. I got it from my LCS which is pretty cool. He called me on a Saturday night at 9 and after a sleepless night I locked it in the next day at noon.

One of my last grails. If you ever decide to part with it please let me know

@cesidio, I take that as a compliment to the highest regard. It’s a book I never thought I’d own and I really only have one other of its caliber, so selling isn’t likely. If ever need bail money though I’ll keep you in mind!

@starlord I appreciate the kind words, I've been very blessed with a supportive wife and fortunate with opportunities to be able to hustle books to afford or feed the addiction. I saw this showcase earlier this year and and was thinking that it would be incredible to have it in the collection. But no way i could afford it. When the sale fell through and I've done business with the owner before. I reached out, we negotiated a little and to my surprise, we made it happen. 👏👏🙏🙏. As far as my collection, we're all in different stages, different circumstances. Some of the collectors I rub elbows with have insane collections. Some have 1 or 2 books worth more than my entire collection. They inspire me to get creative in ways of building the collection. Just making new friends and having a blast doing it.

lol I call all comics Drek except blue chips like Action 1 and Amazing Fantasy 15.
And all Drek belongs in my collection 👍

I picked up the HOS 92 for $400
My big buy in the last couple of months.
Thought it was a nice price for a book to go into my personal collection.

$400 for HoS #92 is not a bad price at all. I'd jump on it, too! Add it to my drek!

Other than an insane amount of modern Independent common issues in multiples, these are some of the books that were squirreled away in a hoarders house that I am helping to unload some of his stuff. The golden age just mixed in, no bags mostly, or boards. Randomly placed. Precious few cool books so far, seems he mainly hoarded the stuff others did not like, and what keys he had, were mostly gone long ago, by his more savvy friends.
You never know though, still 499,000 books yet to go! If he lets me look, that is.
The Marvels were under some boxes,loose, no boards, but did have bags. Survived being yanked out, one by one. Thought I was gonna have a heart attack, when I saw what they were, and how they were handled. Were mixed with some Disney books in the same stack of 15 or so. Had to be a story there, but oddly, he cares nothing about the more valuable ones. These few books have given me hints there may be worthwhile sellable things, buried. It is a slow process, however. A weird disease.

Just got in touch with a guy in the area who sold me these stacks/boxes of old pulps and digests.

I still have to go through them, some are in really bad condition, but he's the original owner of a lot of these, bought them when he was a teen. The ones in stacks are the worse condition ones, the ones in the box are better, just haven't pulled them out yet.
