A recent sale of a copy of this one made a BIG splash recently. Nice Marty!


HOW BIG A SPLASH?

CGC 9.0, Over 4K. It's the first appearance of Fire Hair. Worth slabbing Marty.

@the420bandito Lord, you and I have probably run each other up on books in past auctions. Ace, along with MLJ and Looney Tunes collectibles(comics, Premiums, toys, etc) are my top 3 primary focus', but i dabble in Baker, Cole, Prize, Harvey, Centaur, tough Romance and more.

Prices have cooled a bit, so i have been able to pick up more again recently. I have decided i don't need to complete all the hero runs, but i'm about 4 to 5 MUST HAVE ones away from being 'satisfied' with my set.

I had to outbid Ramon Schenk to get a copy of Cartoon Spice #5. I consider him to be one of the Charlton Comic experts online. It's a little late to be considered Golden Age, but I'll squeeze in a scan. It's from 1958. It hadn't been listed anywhere before I bought it.

Just arrived today, a sweet addition to my Cap collection (raw, nice PQ, no apparent restoration or color touch). After the grade checks out, I envision a CBCS holder is in it's future...

Thanks for the info...with a detached cover and a piece missing from the bottom right corner of the cover I doubt if it would
grade very well.

Still, it's a sleeper now awoken, even low grade copies could fetch some type of premium IMHO

This is one I might consider selling...but I doubt if anyone wants
anything from my collection.

Making another stop on the HIT Comics tour is issue #23, one of the last two covers featuring Stormy. This one is curious because of the fine line detail work and general layout of the art. It has a unique pen/ink style that looks more like Eisner than Crandall to whom the cover is attributed. Perhaps it was a collaborative composition penciled by Eisner and inked by Crandall. Opinions welcome in probing for proper attribution to this unsigned work in lieu of definitive credit acknowledgement...

I plan on finishing my Four Favorites run and calling it a day. I have 75% of the books graded/ungraded but the missing books are impossible. I will most likely leverage my Super-Mystery books to finish it up.

My other interests are skyrocketing - PCH, lady in red, damsel in distress. Things are so crazy I barely bid anymore.

That is a LOVELY book! I have a 5.5.
I'm on the other side: I primarily have more issues of the Super-Mystery run than i do the Four Favorites run. I wanted to complete the SMC run but v3#4 and v6#3 are looking like the two most likely i'll have to live without. Still a few more to go in addition but they seem more attainable.

Of FF, i'd really like a #6 and #10 to call it a day on that run, but both NEVER seem to surface

This thread is terrible for my ego, and my wallet. Got this for a few bucks, from 1948.

Very cool cover JustABitEvil!

A book like the one below probably wouldn't do your wallet much good either ...it consumed mine... (CGC, 9.2 OW/W and highest grade), but as damsels in distress go, this Syd Shores cover with Captain America swinging into action to derail The Parrot from '47 is on the right track as well...




Note: Bucky isn't only tied up, he's playing second fiddle to the brunette in the front cage!

Thats an awesome book. I do love those distressed damsels of the 30s and 40s, was watching a Wings 91 last night, but NYCC awaits so I had to pass.

Upon genuflection, a healthy reverence for CHURCH copies is totally understandable!







Including these, there are six Church books in my collection, but each is special and more is never enough.

Great cover. I just picked up this book with a very similar cover. I wish it was a few bucks.

@the420bandito
Yours is in much better shape than mine, but hey, $10 for a Golden Age bondage cover is a steal unless it's literally been used as toilet paper, right? Most of the other books in this series that I've seen are under $20, maybe I'll do a run.

Finally, a rationale for CGC's oily Newton Rings that makes sense!

National Comics #15 is a book that's no longer in my collection, but I doubt anyone will rail against it since an effort was made to stay on track...
