That's exactly what I did, Mike, I put my "best" slabs in it. The cost with tax was right around $30, which is too much in my opinion. But you can get that price down to around $20 each if you buy 5 or more (and then they will throw in free shipping too). At $20, it seems much more reasonable.

@michaelekrupp - That's a great looking bound volume!

PS - Take a look at the stamp on Issue #1; could it have been a Pence copy?

@esaravo Thanks! Not sure what the significance of the stamp on the cover of #1 is. It definitely has an American 25 cent price on the cover.

@michaelekrupp - Not all comics sold in England had pence versions, or US versions were sold, so they would stamp the covers. Here's an example I just found on Google of a stamped book.

Got an early peek at a neighbor's garage sale and picked these up for dirt cheap. They look like they're in perfect condition, except they've been drymounted.

Anyone got any advice for how to separate the poster from the foam backing? I'm thinking of putting a bedsheet over the poster, then using a dry iron on very high heat to make the glue give way. The posters are cool, but I'd rather sell them and use the money for more funny books.

I would leave them as-is, but it's your choice.

Linen-backing movie posters was a common practice among movie poster collectors. I've been waiting for the day when that would be frowned upon and considered to be a defect.

@X51 It doesn't bother me, and if I keep them, I'll leave them this way. It just makes them harder to ship. And yeah, I expect it's considered a defect among movie poster connoisseurs.

I'm not 100% sure that it is considered a defect. Movie poster collectors have their own guidelines.
Linen-backing a poster was both accepted and preferred. I don't remember how foam backing was viewed. I used to buy comics at a store that sold movie posters. They sold some really expensive ones like Forbidden Planet. I think they had a 3-sheet for Superman & the Mole Men. Some of those old posters were very fragile and collectors didn't want their investment to tear in half or fall apart. Movie posters were also folded prior to distribution to the theaters. This created weak spots and unevenness if a collector wanted to display it. Linen-backing made if stronger and aesthetically more appealing for display. More modern posters are probably shipped in tubes, hence rolled.

Now that's something I'd like to see. I do have an original poster for Love Me Tender (first Elvis movie) but that's not as awesome as Superman or Forbidden Planet. And yes, as you say, it's folded up. Never backed with linen, though - a friend's mom got it straight from the theater way back when.

There were people who collected Elvis posters, so that's probably got some value.

That Roger Rabbit poster is cool.

I love the original film. I’d be interested if the price is right. Shoot me a PM.

Nice, we just rescued a 2+ year old, never been in a house or socialized one-eyed hound (people keep saying it's a treeing walker hound?). I was thinking some sort of fox hound. anyway, he's doing very well for a one-eyed dog that was either buck-shot or B-B shot repeatedly at one point. He is now a pretty severe cuddler. (this was when we first got him and he just stayed in the back hallway for about 2 weeks...trying to fit on the cat's princess bed. Now he loves the walks with our 16 year old dog (we've had since 2004; rescued with a broken hip/fractured pelvis and bald from stress due to abuse at 8 mo).
he came with the name Ethan, but we've been working (and nearly successful) on changing his name to Willy....missing his left eye, had to name him one-eyed willy

what a sad and ultimately very uplifting story!! Thank you for sharing with us! And thank you for rescuing your pups!

My other dog is a rescue as well. Her name is Holly. We're not entirely sure what she is but we suspect maybe German Shepherd, Retreiver and/or Rhodesian Ridgeback. She was abandoned on the reservations in northern Quebec. No visible evidence of physical abuse but there was behavioural evidence. She's 4.5 years old now and we got her when she was 5 months old. She's doing great now..she's integrated nicely and is protective of her little brother Murphy. This is Holly.




sorry for the pic delay...upload issues.
