These (2) showed up and still waiting on a 3rd book. From the Fantast Collection. I am very excited about the movie and story. Working with the people at Fantast is really great. A real pleasure.

Received this from the Fantast Collection and the Fantast store itself. There was a bit of a mix up and they worked with me to make everything right. Even sent a free t-shirt!! Very happy with their books and customer support. 

And this copy, Brave and the Bold 81 CGC 9.6 White pages is sweet!! Dark green cover and Adams interior artwork makes this very special. For some reason it does not quite get the normal Batman love, but it will get the Dover love for certain!

Yikes. Got back a 12-book submission from CGC. Some are keepers, some are to be sold and some are just until I get the chance to upgrade. 

Adventures in Leather!! Not as sexy as it sounds. One to sell and one to keep. 

Aurora - nice.

Detective Comics - awesome!!

House of Secrets - bought from @Dale Roberts raw! 

Phantom Stranger 14, at one point I owned a 9.8, passed up a second one and now...... it's a start. 

B&Bold - missed the stain. :cry:

DC Special - tough book to find in high grade. Cream pages?; I will likely crack & burn it.

From WorldWide Comics. Thank you Sharon!!

The Brave and the Bold has sat on their website for years. I have almost purchased it many times. I finally completed the transaction mostly because I was tired of looking at it behind the screen. Brought it home. 

The Strange Adventures should grade at least a 9.4, maybe 9.6.

I got this set from a private exchange. I have been after them for a long time and patience paid off. 

Superman 231 is very hard to find in 9.4 or higher. And it is a Twin Cities copy. 

Superman 237 is a Twin Cities copy as well. It is an updgrade from my 9.6.

From @mycomicshop received (3) today. 

Amazing Adventure - not a very good copy of a "9.6". Sad. I will be looking for a better copy. 

Tomb of Dracula - I won this with a low bid, an accident. For days, I did not realize I actually won it as I think I was tied with someone else. I did not get a "you won, pay now notice".  It was very weird. Not until I went to buy another book was I able to see it in my Purchase cart. I will likely crack this out and keep as my raw copy. 

Destroyer Duck - historic book for Groo and Destroyer Duck 1st but also Neal helping the artist community. Neal was a good guy in that way. Crusty Bunkers was another example of helping the community. This will need to be added to the Neal - Indie registry set some day. I have a long list of fixes and additions that I should send to CGC.

From E-Bay. This is a nice book. Hard to find in grade. A really odd cover with Superman cheering on Wonder Woman throwing out Lois Lane.

Lois Lane 83 - Brad Squared Collection

Lois Lane 85 - awesome green cover

Really hard to find these. Not very collectible so they stay hidden and unloved.

These are part of a recent CGC submission. Those DC Dollar books are sweet but not to CGC.
