One of my MOST favorite covers of all time and my personal “grail”. The women in the picture is so beautifully rendered, while Swamp Thing appears so supply in the background. It is a work of art. Thanks again for the share Steve!

one of my copies obviously color faded, but I really think the toning down of the colors worked to make it look more macabre. I like it. I need to get it sent in for signature verification

Do you know that the model for the woman is Louise Simonson?

The Mile High Copy still hasn't surfaced. Chuck felt like it was still with the family that bought it.

@sborock I got to get some of these high grade obscure GA into you soon. I may shock you, even though I know you've likely seen it all, and maybe well see one in this thread.

@sborock Yes, please.

These books are cool, but they're giving me a complex about the quality of my collection!

@infinityG & @CatCovers.......... For every book I post, we get in 100 low grade or inexpensive books. Most people don't have a lot of super high grade books in their collections. Collect what you love and can afford and you will have tons of fun in our great hobby!

I am curious about the process itself...what determines which books you yourself grade? Do you get the top 2% or is it random and they deal you books to grade like any other grader?

I finalize all rapid, quickstream, 1 & 2 day submissions. When I am done, I help finalize all other tiers to move your comics through quicker. This weekend I put in about 12 hours and mostly finalized moderns (about 80%).
