This is my oldest yellow banner cover.

'Tec #18 with Craig Flessel's stunning Fu Manchu cover is also one of the coolest Edgar Church copies in my collection...

Can't blame Cap too much for lusting after that "sly, lovely girl" in the red dress.

The cover teaser says it all: "DON'T MISS THE STARTLING CLIMAX...!"

I kinda got sidetracked a few pages back by my own jaundiced attraction to the "yeller" cover discussions. Here's the second of the two key issues of Captain America Comics culminating in the last appearance of Bucky Barnes in CA #66 (CGC, 8.0).

From the prior issues slap-down to the dramatic shot delivered by another femme fatale, it's clear Bucky was headed for his final bow in the Sidekick's Lounge. Following this issue Cap would partner with the alluring Golden Girl, a team up that would last through the brief remainder of the 1940's series (both CA #65 & #66 have covers by Syd Shores)...




These two Timely's are tough in any grade.

There are too many to quote. I just have to say, you all have beautiful books. I am very jealous. I’ve been collecting for years and have yet to own one single golden age. I need to remedy this.


Keep them coming.

@earthshaker01 Yep, it's an addiction I can't seem to shake.











GA comics provide a monkey-on-your-back high that can't be purchased with chimp change, ...but will still probably be cheaper than the gorilla your dreams.

Note: These sets used to be rotated in my signature line on another board. A few of these books have been traded or sold to leverage other books and for future upgrades.

National #16 is an awesome Lou Fine cover. Uncle Sam, bigger than life, battling a decaying warrior demonstrates how America of the 1940's could rise to the occasion when called upon to repair the damage done by power hungry dictators who oppress their people and endanger the security of the world...




Poor Uncle Sam probably finds the complicated aspects of the current, more manipulative government depressingly difficult to make sense of in modern times. If asked to wear a MAGA hat, he'd probably just say "No thank you, what's wrong with The one I'm wearing?" The tactics employed to defeat a common enemy back in WWII were easy to figure out and made perfect sense, ...but times change. Like Pogo, today's Uncle Sam is probably thinking: "I've seen the enemy and he is us!"

I grew up loving the Isis/Shazam hour. Enjoy the kid power super hour with Shazam also. Captain Marvel was my favorite because he was a kid just like me who could be a superhero. Nothing better! Not a big fan of the new Shazam though. Hate the cape and the hood and most of the costume now. The original was one of the best costumes of all time I believe. Looking forward to the movie though. I have come to a conclusion that Captain Marvel and Shazam are two different characters in different universes.

Very rare Two volume slipcase edition from the late 80's of Captain America #1-10. It was pulled immediately after release for obscene touch-ups to Cap & Bucky that weren't discovered until this edition went to press.
...Big ooops!
