Here's another artist themed cover by the S&K team, this time for Timely:

I think I may just sell a bunch of my ok stuff to get one old timely comic in decent shape. They are just cool to look at.

Very cool.

Now for something you'll never see again. Here is one of my graded "Vic Torry and his Flying Saucer" 1950. I have several, but what I want you to see is I recently found a high grade copy of the British version from 1950, albeit a little rust on top left staple, it's gorgeous. Notice the British version is about an inch or so shorter than the American version. See where the girls neckline is cut off.

The sole Alex Schomburg Cat-Man cover (Edgar Church pedigree)...

This book took me a good 10 years of hunting to see if one existed in high grade. I found a guy who had this, but wouldn't let it go for 3 years, until now. I'm a huge Ziff-Davis fan, as imho, they had some of the oddest and best painted covers.
This book is rare in general and never in high grade like this.
"Teenie Weenies" #10(#1) 1950.

That's a really nice book. I bought one with half a cover on ebay for cheap but it's no where this one.

Yes I saw that one on ebay. I posted mine on Facebook and it turns out there is quite a history of these characters long before this comic came out. Interesting stuff. Glad you got a copy. I'm looking for one other Ziff-Davis #10(##1) title in high grade. Hopefully, I find it one day.
