Looks legit. I believe the bar code for the second printing is 00212.

Newly back graded

backside

Artist proof bought from Jamie last year, got it signed/graded this year (JT in bottom corner; 5 JT artists proof were made)






Not a great grade, but not unexpected...the way I got this comic was a little unorthodoxed. It amounted to finding it in a place that occasionally has comics on what amounts to a spinner rack 3 weeks after it was sold out everywhere else.

@Enelson

What I always question about that first Spider-Woman cover is whether Fury is wondering what sort of energy blast just barely missed him or if he's wondering why his gun is magenta. He could be staring at either.

A few comics I got in the mail today. The four foreigns I bought off of eBay in one lot. The rest I bought off a Facebook sale. The highlights, for me, are: the "El Monje Loco", "Fever Dreams" and the Tank Girl.

The Tank Girl I got a good deal on and it will join my TG collection. The "Los Invasores" will join my UFO collection. The "Doce Del Patibulo" (Dirty Dozen) will join my war collection.

The "Fever Dreams" is supposed to have an excellent Richard Corben Sci-fi story in it (some say his best). So I look forward to reading that underground comic. It is a first printing with 54,321 printed.

But the greatest prize in my mind is the "El Monje Loco" #50!!! That translates to "The Mad Monk". It is a highly popular comic in Mexico. I've wanted to get a decent one that had the Mad Monk pictured prominently for under $20 for well over a year. Basically, you will find single copies starting at $30 in various states of wear. Well, I was able to pick up all four foreigns shipped in a single lot for under $13 (after using my $1.77 eBay bucks - LOL) Anyways, here is what I got in the mail today.

As a WWII buff myself, The real gem is the Dirty Dozen Book. Nobody did classic War movies like Lee Marvin. One of my all time favorites. Is there an American version of the book?

I wouldn't if you're not going to play around with the book Patty cake style.
Love old label books.
Yes I know you should replace them but there is a cool feeling to know the book was graded before the crack and press and reslab of today's slabs. 😀

I haven't been able to add a high quality Conan book to my run in quite some time now. Was really happy to add this book. Master Story teller Roy Thomas, Classic John Buscema artwork and its all topped off with a beautiful Gil Kane Cover. Everything I could ever want in a comic book!

Im still on the hunt for High Quality 9.0 or Higher Conan Issues: #28 #31 #32 #33 #35 #36 #38 #39 #43 #44 #46 #49 #50 #58 #61 #63 #65 #67 #68 #78

i have no desire to change the slab, I don't believe the slabs need to be changed out every so many years. I'm old and I love the old books and the old labels.

I’m pretty sure Dell published it in the U.S..

Yes, I checked them out. Looks like if a higher grade one could be found it could be kinda pricey

@00slim Thanks for replying and finding that pic!!

@BigRedOne1944 Yes, a high grade Dell copy might be hard yo find. I just checked the CGC Census. There are 27 Universal graded and one Qualified. The Qualified and 24 Universal are 9.0 or higher. I suspect those are in the hands of collectors and not dealers. Your probably going to have to find a raw one in wild. That could be tough, expensive or both. I never really thought I'd ever own a copy. I've always liked the movie and I've known about the comic for years, but I've never chased it. And honestly, if the "El Monje Loco" had not been in that lot, I STILL would have paid what I did for it. The "Invaders" #1 comic is a Gold Key comic that I've wanted for some time also. Again, not an expensive book in lower grade, but the higher grades are tough to find. But those two alone, in the condition they are in, are easily worth what the seller was asking.

Just a thought but the movie also had like two sequels if I remember correctly

There were actually no sequels.

The 1970 Film "Too Late the Hero" with Michael Caine and Henry Fonda was described as a "kind of sequel to The Dirty Dozen", but it was really just a stand alone film itself.

"Play Dirty" (1969) and "Inglorious Bastard" (1977) Both Similarly loose remakes.

Nothing matched the Original

Usually sequels do not match the original. The three movies are sold as a box set on almost any shopping site you care to search for them....they are indeed sold as Dirty dozen , and its two sequels. Disagree with the marketers if you like, that's how they are released

Also just so you know.....according to wiki "Several TV films were produced in the mid-to-late 1980s which capitalized on the popularity of the first film. Lee Marvin, Richard Jaeckel and Ernest Borgnine reprised their roles for The Dirty Dozen: Next Mission in 1985, leading a group of military convicts in a mission to kill a German general who was plotting to assassinate Adolf Hitler.[30] In The Dirty Dozen: The Deadly Mission (1987), Telly Savalas, who had played the role of the psychotic Maggott in the original film, assumed the different role of Major Wright, an officer who leads a group of military convicts to extract a group of German scientists who are being forced to make a deadly nerve gas.[31] Ernest Borgnine again reprised his role of General Worden. The Dirty Dozen: The Fatal Mission (1988) depicts Savalas's Wright character and a group of renegade soldiers attempting to prevent a group of extreme German generals from starting a Fourth Reich, with Erik Estrada co-starring and Ernest Borgnine again playing the role of General Worden.[3"


As you can see for yourself multiple sequels, although agreed none matched the orginal..

@Darkseid_of_town beat me to it. The made-for-TV sequels were poorly received, to say the least.

They definitely were not that great but sequels regardless....I think those are what are included in the box sets if I remember correctly, along with the original

Ed - thanks for the kind words and happy to hear they arrived safely. I sense you were a little worried when you saw the package! 😁

I will post Ed’s contribution to the trade which I received some time ago when I get it from my storage
