Just loaded an image of HEADLINE COMICS #16 on Nostomania
and was surprised to see, based on their surveys, that it
was listed at a 10 on the Demand Gauge. Could be because of
first appearance and origin of ATOMIC MAN.

While searching through my collection for UGLY KEYS and GOLDEN
AGE FUNNY ANIMAL comics to post in their respective threads I
ran across this PEP COMICS #60. I had forgotten that my name
and address were printed inside the front cover as one of the
Prize Winners in the SHIELD G-MAN CLUB CONTEST...the Prize was
a free copy of a future PEP COMICS.

This was the Best time of year to find new issues of FOUR COLOR
at W.T. GRANTS. I guess they made good Christmas gifts.

In my endless search for a copy of STUNTMAN #3, I ran across this
STUNTMAN text story in my copy of JOE PALOOKA COMICS #9...never
noticed it before.

As I have mentioned before, Sundays were always terrific because
it was the day I went with my Father to the UNION NEWS Newsstand
at the train station and always found a Comic Book I couldn't find
at my corner newsroom. Not everyone carried STREET AND SMITH comics.

@martymann - Great books Marty! You might not realize it, but many of the books you have been posting recently are pretty rare and rarely ever seen, in any condition. And although they may not all be worth thousands of dollars, some have fewer than 10 or even 5 graded copies on the CGC Census. So thank you so much for sharing, otherwise we would most likely never see these great covers!

PS: Wishing you and your family a wonderful New Year!

@esaravo Thank you so much for your kind words and continued
interest in my collection. It is truly my pleasure to share
images of my books with you and the collecting community. As I
have said before, many times, never did I think some 70 years ago
I would be sending pictures of my comic books through the air to
be viewed by so many people...thank you all for giving me the
opportunity to share my collection.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Marty

I was reminded by Badger that reprints from STUNTMAN #3 appeared
in GREEN HORNET COMICS #37 and #39...hopefully this is the year
I end my search for a copy of STUNTMAN #3.

This was the First CAPTAIN MARVEL ADVENTURES I bought off
the newsstand...nearly 75 years ago and still in pretty
good shape.



OO (April 1944)("N" copy)

And then the very next month I picked up this issue which
introduced a new character RADAR The International Policemen.
I was then hooked on CAPTAIN MARVEL!

Always thought this type of cover art was "suitable for framing.".
