Thank you again my friends!

Your one of a kind stories are treasures. Like a time portal to way back when.
Looking forward to many more of your remembered adventures....

One of those titles you would find in off-beat locations...not your corner

Thank you for your kind words.
There are 750+ Golden Age comics in my collection purchased between 1942 and 1954.
Both CBCS an CGC agree that I don't have enough books and their quality is too low
to qualify for a Pedigree...but thanks for the thought.


I bet CBCS, though they will not pedigree your collection, will put on each label: FROM THE PERSONAL COLLECTION OF MARTY MANN.

If you would like me to talk with West over there, you have my email, just reach out to me.
Always happy to help you Marty!


Yes this sounds great!

According to Overstreet there were 5 total issues of Golden Lad, but this is the first I have ever heard of it.

I thought the lettering looked a lot like the “Green Lama” logo and checking the listing they are the same publisher - Spark.

@KCBatmanFan I used to own a high grade copy of #1. Sold it many years ago as it did not fit my collection at the time. Had to buy it to get the entire deal that was all DC GA except that one....

There are only 3 on the CBCS Population report and 31 on the CGC Census. Does this book have a Gerber index?

Agreed, #6 is a Classic Cover...I also like #2 the "FORWARD TO VICTORY" cover.
Besides #5 I also have #7 the Christmas cover. They weren't that easy to find
on the newsstand.

@martymann - A 3.0 graded copy recently sold on eBay for $8,500 (October 9th). Last year, during the feeding frenzy, prices in that grade ranged from around $7,500 to $12,500.

I would have scooped up a copy too. Very nice.

Marty, this book popped up in one of my searches yesterday. Have you ever seen this title?

I doubt if I'm alone, but I must confess that as a kid I never bothered
to read any of the 2-page text stories in my comics. I read every
word of the ads but just ignored the "2-pagers".
While looking through my CAPTAIN MARVEL ADVENTURES #59 the title of the
"2-pager" caught my eye..."FARMER BOY" by J.B. Magill. For the very first
time I stopped and read it and to my surprise enjoyed it.
Now it looks like I have an additional 750+ stories to read.

@martymann Amazing what a dime could buy you back then.
So when you had a few dimes, and you opted to buy something other than comics, what were some of your favorite things to get back then?

The only other true passion I had were BARCLAY LEAD TOY SOLDIERS.
These 3 and a half inch gems which were available in every Dime Store
toy department were incredible. I collected and played with enough of
them to fill two large tin cans still around each packed in a sandwich
bag to keep the paint from flaking off...wonder I didn't get lead poisoning.
