Twins! In the course of human events duplications occur. When these rare anomalies appear they should be duly noted, scientifically examined and when possible explained!

In upgrading Marvel Mystery #19, the acquisition and retention of one such celebrated doppelgänger occurred. There would be others!

A different copy of this comic was my first GA DD. I still think the story is awesome!

shut out on EVERY book I bid on. I think people are overvaluing these books. It is funny to see some copies go straight to feebay for 3x what they sold for. I for one will wait for the market to crash to grab one.

I've noticed that as well. The amount being flipped (or attempted flip) amazes me.

I picked up mine with only a slight premium over the original sale. It is a western book, so no huge initial sale price. It might be the cheapest third-owner Promise book sold.

@figment this is the only thing I have with Dollman, I think. Feature #83, not even sure the year it is. Not really my thing. I'm more a first issue guy. Anyhow, it was in a box, had bad spine roll and a little dirty, as seen in picture one. One day I was bored so I spent a half hour and took out most the spine roll and cleaned it a bit. I could tighten up a little more if I wanted to probably take another half hour, lol. Always liked this character just never collected him.

The only reason I have those two is because I was chasing Torchy. Can't imagine why.

Doll Man has covers that if he was a female hero they'd be unaffordable. Some very interesting scenario lol

Ace Comics #117. The scan doesn't do it justice, but the colors on a high grade copy are incredible.

Based on being advertised in DCs from around March 1938, as far as I can tell, this little panel of Dr. Occult (holding a sword, wearing a cape) on the "lower left middle" of the front cover is the first appearance of a Superhero on a comic book cover. Predates Action Comics #1 by a few months. Does anyone know of an earlier superhero cover appearance?
