@martymann - Were Winky, Blinky, and Noddy basically the Three Stooges? That’s what they look like to me.

When this book came out we still had an Ice Box...and the Iceman
had to carry a 25-pound block of ice up three stories every few days.

I have to admit that this was a surprise to find on the newsstand
mixed in with SUPERMAN and WALT DISNEY COMICS & STORIES...it was
on the top rack nearly out of reach for me.

I really like seeing these covers and imagining the reality of a young kid getting them for the first time and sitting down to read them.

If only you could have a conversation with young Martymann. Probably would be something like "Hey kid, great job keeping the comics all those years...that worked out better than you could imagine. Please try to be a little more choosy about where you set them down or who you let read them. Keep them away from water. Oh yeah, don't write on them. If only you could find some kind of a plastic bag or something..."

Thank you for your very kind remarks. As I've said before, never
did I think all those years ago that one day I would be sending
pictures of my collection through the air...far more incredible
than the stories in the books.
I'm always pleased that they stayed in the condition they are in
after years of moving around stored in cardboard boxes from the
grocery store. The worse thing being that one of the boxes got
wet and selectively damaged some of my favorite books.
And, I was very thankful during the mid '70's to discover plastic
bags to store them in, adding more years to their lives.
Again, thank you for your interest in my collection!

I am offering my REMAINDER copy of DETECTIVE COMICS #168 for sale
during the upcoming ComicConnect Auction.
I bought this copy in March 1951 at a corner store in Scranton,PA
...the store didn't sell new comics but had a box of these
remainder comics for a nickle each.
While I don't agree with it, the book has been graded as RESTORED
by CGC due to what they view as "color touch" to the cover. The
book was submitted to CGC by ComicConnect.
The JOKER Origin Page is in excellent condition.
I am truly looking forward to seeing how much interest there will
be in this book from my PARK AVENUE COLLECTION.

ComicConnect auction begins today at noon...
we'll see how this goes and maybe submit my TALES FROM THE CRYPT
#20 for the next auction. Except for the missing one third of the
front cover this book is in great shape...no blue ink on this one.

Hey Marty, do you have a specific comic cover that sticks in your memory as being particularly impactful to you as a kid? A cover that was so compelling or so haunting that it captured your imagination more than most? For example for me in early 1980's it was X-men 141, with Wolverine standing in front of the poster of all the dead or captured mutants in the future. The cover still sticks with me 40 years later. Anything like that for you?

Thanks for asking!
Saw this hanging by a clothespin in a store window on the way
home from school...hand to run home for a dime and hope it was
still there when I got back...always one of my favorites.
