CAPTAIN MIDNIGHT on radio was a lot different than the comic
book CAPTAIN MIDNIGHT.

It was quite a surprise when I picked up a copy of MORE FUN #101
off the newsstand to find placed between AQUAMAN and JOHNNY QUICK
a 5-page story, the first story, of SUPERBOY. In later years I
discovered it also contained the last GA appearance of THE SPECTRE.

@martymann looking at your collection it dawns on me that buying comic books in the 40's and holding them turned out to be kind of a kids version of investing in Real Estate. Certainly we all wish we could have bought Real Estate in the 40's, and certainly kids couldn't afford to. But with your dimes and nickels you made your little weekly investments, not even realizing what you were doing at the time. Just like prime real estate, they became more and more rare over the years. Now many of those 10 cent investments are worth 3,000-30,000 times the amount that you invested. Probably even a much better percentage return than if you had been able to buy real estate.

@EbaySeller Thank you for your kind words...every once in awhile
it is brought to my attention that my collection of 750+ comics
were purchased for around $80.00...if only I had a few more dimes
back then.

photograph...

@martymann that photo-cover Captain Marvel caught my eye and I bought one on Ebay last month. I also took a long look at a #92 but the copy I was looking at was pretty low grade. Most of the Captain Marvel books are still priced reasonably enough that I don't like to go below 4.0 or so.

Funny that the first panel talks about how popular Superman is and the next panels starts a retelling of the Krypton origin story. I wonder who decided that would be necessary to introduce Superboy?

@martymann It's both ridiculous and adorable! It's nice to think of a time when comic books were written for such an innocent and impressionable demographic.
