Sometimes I think the "Splash Page" is as good, if not better,
than the Cover.

It was 1945 and SUPERMAN and LOIS had a Refrigerator...while we
still had to depend on the Iceman lugging a 40 pound piece of ice
up three floors every three to four days for our modern Ice Box...
comics were pure fantasy then.

Bought a few ADVENTURE COMICS because they had GREEN ARROW, AQUAMAN, JOHNNY QUICK, THE SHINING KNIGHT along with SUPERBOY...really felt
like I was getting my moneys worth.

Interesting. IDW reprinted some of the content as recently as 2010.

Never failed to pick up a motorcycle cover when I saw one.
Always thought the sidecar was on the wrong side.

Been busy booking a cruise for later this month to celebrate our
55th Wedding Anniversary.
Thought this would be appropriate.

Always thought that turning the JOHNNY THUNDER character into
a western hero was a good decision.

ALL-STAR number 41 is one of my all time favorites featuring the
"NEW" INJUSTICE SOCIETY and the HARLEQUIN reveling she's not a
"real" criminal...just trying to attract the GREEN LANTERN...
really a good story line.

on the newsstand...but have little or no collectible interest today.

Been awhile since I walked down the Avenue, Marty. Always loved that Batman 44! Splash page is as advertised as well. And the good news (for me) is I still have many pages left to enjoy! Also congrats on your anniversary!!!😎🍺

Always love the variety of your collection, Marty. Is that because your tastes were towards anything and everything or is it because you took what you could find? I know finding runs of comics back then was a challenge; heck, even when I was growing up in the 70s, I couldn't find newsstand comics with a guaranteed regularity. There were no comic shops in my neck of the woods either. By the early 80s I opened a wholesale account with Alternate Realities out of Maryland. I had to buy a minimum of 30(?) books each month but i got a big discount and all the books were delivered almost untouched by other grubby hands.

Jeff...Thank you for your kind words. The variety of my collection
came about as I was always on the lookout for first issues...not
because I ever thought they would be valuable but I just enjoyed
finding new characters. I was also limited in acquiring runs of
favorite titles by the selection and numbers of copies at the
newsstand or in the newsrooms. And, finally the lack of funds
kept me from buying many of my favorite titles.

Speaking of variety...how could I not buy these two issues that
were on the newsstand the same month?

Posted this on The Golden Age Comics thread in reference to the
DUKE OF DARKNESS character...just found out that the JCA on the
cover stands for JASON COMIC ART.
