No. Ace of Spades fits perfectly with the Joker’s motives and knack for theatre…

Good choice. Ostrander and Mandrake were a good team for that one. It was also nice that Ostrander wrote the entire series and Mandrake for the majority only absent a few issues throughout keeping it cohesive.

"There, their, they're." GAC private msg quote post Address this user
I've already completed my Mister Miracle run in 8.0 or higher...I'd like to upgrade 6 issues to 9.0 or higher thereby putting the entire run at 9.0 and higher but I'll put that on the back burner for now.

I've decided to work on my Eternals run in 8.5 or higher...love bronze age Kirby...all Kirby eras actually!

Picked up issue #5 today....already had issues 1-3.

Beaten by boat oars Studley_Dudley private msg quote post Address this user
First time in several months that I was able to devote a whole weekend to comics. I went to the Bookery and upgraded/added some nice BA Avengers books on Saturday. On Sunday, I went to Queen City Comics and bought some run fillers amongst other things. Now, I had plenty of opportunities for the keys at both stores, but I'm not just any trained monkey so I went straight for the drek.

@GAC Oh yeah I know all bout Ed. Actually, the movie "Deranged" (1974) (same year as Texas Chainsaw Massacre) is about Ed Gein (based off him). Great movie.

Toledo. Last time I was in Cleveland I had a couple incidents. That was 12 years ago and I haven’t been back since.

Nope, I changed his saying of “Cleveland rocks” to “Cleveland sux”.

I don’t know if there are any forum members from there but I’d still say it.

Two more that I got delivered today. The Hit #25 I've been after for a while. The Airboy #5 I got for a good price and I just kind of lucked into it.

We used to go in the early 90s every year for the Indy Car race at Burke Airport. We had a lot of fun and the Flats were the place to be with bars. I wonder if the Flats is still a thing. I know it was also near the Rock and Roll hall of fame which I attended many years ago.

Big thanks @HeinzDad for the coolest new addition to my collection this year. Already on permanent display.

Also, if anyone needs tips on improving their comic packaging game, he’s your man.

Edit: reshuffled my model cars a bit to better match.

This arrived this morning. Grabbed it because the price was right & the seller said they “didn’t see anything wrong with it”. In-hand, I see a minimum of seven spine ticks on the front alone.

Oh well, still a cool book & perhaps trade fodder for the future.

@sportshort “Witching Hour” books are great! I pick them up anytime I see them. Very Twilight Zone-esque stories.
