After all this time I just found out this was the first issue
of JUNIOR.

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

This was my last DAREDEVIL...when the LITTLE WISE GUYS took over
the stories I lost interest.

While posting images on Nostomania I remembered I had two
copies of FOUR-COLOR #190, "FLASH GORDON THE ADVENTURES OF
THE FLYING SAUCERS" had to pick one to post. This issue is
one of the early FLYING SAUCER comics and has a wrap-around
cover showing the FLYING SAUCERS on the back cover.

Just realized this SMITTY is number one...not part of the FOUR-COLOR
group.

Just saw that at a recent (December 30, 2018) HERITAGE AUCTION
a JUNIOR #9 in VG condition sold for $720.00...never realized
that there was any interest in this title.

I didn't clip many coupons from my books but one I did clip
was inside the back cover of DETECTIVE #135. I sent for the
DAISY HANDBOOK using this coupon, ten cents and an unused
3 cent stamp.

While browsing my copies of WORLD'S FINEST I ran across one
of my favorite splash pages. From #34...

I know my copy is only a remainder, but I just discovered that
Overstreet shows MYSTERY IN SPACE #1 in second position on their Top Ten Science=Fiction Comics listing.

I don't remember seeing this one before Marty. That is what I like about your collection; you didn't seem to concentrate on any one genre or series. Always interesting to see what is next.

Collecting books from that era, now, is a lot of effort and money. I've focused on just a few genres but I am always tempted to just start buying like a crazy, ultimately cash poor, fool.

Thank you for your kind words and continued interest in my
collection. The newsstands were so full of great titles and
I just wanted to sample them all...restricted only by the
ability to pay for them...I missed so many great ones!

Little could I have imagined back in 1945 when I picked
up off the newsstand a copy of DETECTIVE COMICS #104, my
first DETECTIVE COMICS, that 74 years later I would be
buying issue number 1,000 of the same title off a table
in a store called BARNES & NOBLE.
