Collector esaravo private msg quote post Address this user
Hope everyone is enjoying their Saint Patrick's Day and feeling good enough to be looking for some comics to purchase. I have put together some packages at discounted prices of some odd-ball books that I have lying around.

For those you don't know me, I am a long-time collector and not a dealer. I don't sell on ebay and I don't have a Twitter or Facebook account. I have sold and/or traded books with dozens of great collectors on these forums for the last three years or so, many that I now consider friends. I try to be fair and I sincerely want everyone who purchases something to be satisfied with their books. I know how to package, and I ship USPS Priority Mail with tracking and insurance (I will not ship Media Mail). I only accept PayPal as payment and I will ship pretty much anywhere in the US for $10 (prices quoted do not include shipping).

It will take me some time to post the scans, so please be patient. The first "I'll take it" claims it. I will PM you to finalize the sale. These are packages of two or more comics, and I'd like to sell them that way. If no one claims a package after a few days and you are interested in some of the books, please PM me and I'll see what I can do. If anyone is looking for something in particular that you think I might have, feel free to ask. For this evening, I am posting mostly Silver Age DC's, Charltons, and Gold Keys that on average are in VG to FN condition.

I only own two EC horror comics. Both are slabbed and I wouldn't mind grabbing a few more myself. I saw that you picked up some nice raw copies recently. Made me jealous!

Thank you very much for taking notice!

Just prior to 2016 I had 65 short boxes which is by no means a large collection. But early '16 I dumped 49 to thin the herd and what I have left I just can't bring myself to part right now. LOL

2023 I plan to start selling,... piece by piece. If I was just 10 years younger, I would be buying/trading with a lot of you guys here. Anyhow, sorry to OT your sales thread.

Let's get back to business here!

Okay, Kaptain, do you like Adams? How about a run of the Phantom Stranger with some classic Neal Adams covers? To misquote Matt Damon, “How do you like them Adams?”

Here are issues #’s 14 through 18. I’d put them in the VG range with a few in the VG/FN range. First $35 takes the lot.

SOLD!



Neal Adams version of the Swamp Thing?



Would you believe Brother Voodoo?



Old Man Xavier?



Drivin’ that train,...



What’s Kraken?

A few more; two high grade runs of the Shadow. The first is the 1987 DC series with some all-time great covers by Sienkiewicz, Rogers, and Baker. Includes issues #’s 1-9, all should grade at least VF/NM with most higher. $40 for all 9 issues.

Here’s a few more of the Shadow. Issues #1, 3, and 4 of DC’s limited series from 1986 (how did I miss #2?); and the first issue of the 1987 Annual. Great Chaykin covers on all of them and again all will grade VF/NM or higher. All four for $16.

How about Strange Adventures featuring Adam Strange. These four books present nicely, but the collector I purchased them from had the bad habit of writing his purchase dates in ink on the bottom of the insides of the back covers. I have issues #220, 223, 224, and 225. I guess I would say VG for condition, but they look better than that (and a pair of outstanding Joe Kubert covers too). $15 for the four issues.



Beautiful cover with almost a Golden Age look to it.



Funny, I don’t remember this battle.



Never give a suped-up super vacuum to a blockhead.



Perhaps the inspiration for a scene from Independence Day?
