@martymann I've been looking for some Clock covers on MCS and can't find any available. Sounds like a goofy character, but for some reason clocks make great covers. What's his story?

Question: I wonder if my copies of JACK ARMSTRONG #1 & #4
are too large for the Golden Age holder...they measure 7-1/2
by 10-3/4.

Someone mentioned that magazine sized holders are coming in April. Maybe those would work?

Just spent a portion of the afternoon revisiting a box
of coverless comics...the result of many years moving them
around.
Two that made me appreciate the 20 cents I had spent on them
were BATMAN #65 and #67 both from 1951.

Number 65 contains three BATMAN stories...1)"A PARTNER FOR
BATMAN" with WINGMAN the European version of BATMAN 2) "BRUCE
WAYNE-CRIME REPORTER" with the duo hunting for the leader of
the ARTISAN GANG and 3) the Classic Cover story "CATWOMAN-
EMPRESS OFTHE UNDERWORLD".

Number 67 is equally entertaining with 1)"THE MYSTERY ROPE"
2) "THE MAN WHO WROTE THE JOKER'S JOKES" and 3) "THE LOST
LEGION OF SPACE".

Covers are gone but the stories are still there.

Coverless comics continued...
Hard to say how many years have passed since I last looked through
my coverless copy of ALL-STAR #53 from 1950, but for the first time
I noticed a change of costume for ATOM "The Mighty Mite" "The Tiny
Titan"...I think I liked the old one better.
An other find was MORE FUN #101 with the first appearance of
SUPERBOY and the last GA appearance of SPECTRE...until SHOWCASE #60.

Yesterday I came across my coverless Batman 55 & 57, as well as a Detective 101 and another, but I can't recall which one it is off the top of my head. I had forgotten I had them!!

Just read about the "TRUCKEE MEADOWS COLLECTION" which
appears to be receiving as much attention as a "PEDIGREE"
...might be some hope for me in the future.

Digging through my remainder comics I started looking though my copy of TALES FROM THE CRYPT #20 (1950).
In the CRYPT-KEEPERS LETTER CORNER it explained why the
title had been changed from CRYPT OF TERROR.
One of the letters for the "CRYPT KEEPER" was from an ED
SZEP in Brooklyn, NY requesting copies of #6-#9 & #16
offering as "high as 75 cents apiece for them.
As far as I am able to find out there were only 3 issues
of CRYPT OF TERROR #17-#18 & #19 not quite sure was he
was looking for...but I sure hope he found them back in
1950.

Check in time...hard to believe that it's been 80 years since I bought my first
comic book off the newsstand...ALL WINNERS #4...graded 3.0 by CGC.
Funny how time flies!

Best to all.

There were so many popular titles on the newsstand to choose from, but I
always felt that from time to time it was fun to pick up a copy of an
unknown title...such a find was HEADLINE COMICS #16,Nov./Dec. 1945,
published by American Boys' Comics, Inc. 8 Lord Street, Buffalo, NY.

Re-Reading this book after so many years reminds me of how much enjoyment
comic books brought me back then.

First, this issue contained the first appearance and origin of ATOMIC MAN...
remember this was 1945 and anything "ATOMIC" was new.

The back cover contained one of the early CHARLES ATLAS "97-pound weakling ads.
The ad also contained a coupon for a FREE BOOK "Everlasting Health and Strength".
There was a box to check if you were under 16 for a copy of Book A.

Another ad was for "LEARN HOW TO FLY!" which offered an exciting Flying Game,
Flying Course Book and a DELUXE PRE-FLIGHT TRAINER COCKPIT all for only $2.49
post paid. I received this for Christmas and still have the "HOW TO FLY"
Course Book.

Stories included in this issue of HEADLINE COMICS included the cover story
featuring the JUNIOR RANGERS, also BUCK SAUNDERS and The Cowboys Of The Air,
WORLDBEATER and UUGGH and the adventures of CARROTT TOP.

Even today it's a GREAT BUY for ten cents!

Marty, it's nice to hear from you. Hope things are going well. I bought another one of these recently based on inspiration from you. Because I know that Tawny the Talking Tiger is going to be as big as Wolverine one day:
