  1. The Baker tells are faces, fingers, and form. This has all three. Baker worked fast in a smaller format to create almost an animated style for this story. He obviously looked at Wood's Western Crimebusters work. This is his Western action mode, a different style than the slick romance stuff for which he is known. Only one 2.5 on the census, Most will never have the chance to hold and read this squarebound pocket size graphic novel comic book. Anyone else have a copy?

  3. On the other hand, I think this is...
  4. Would love to see interior shots of this! Is it comics inside?
  5. A bargain at twice the price. Just the second copy I've ever seen. From the esteemed collection of the late apex dealer/collector Phil Levine. Phil had an eye for the very rarest. Doubt we will see another one of these soon, although this price might shake one or two out. Ha ha, right! Vital publications usually had pretty widespread distribution with multiple editions. Wonder if this was a tryout/test run? Good get!
  6. Among other things, Robert Beerbohm was one of the comic medium's most important researchers. He pioneered using the internet to network collectors. Through Yahoo Groups Bob set up a Platinum Age Comics group. It was a great email list / forum. People from all over the world shared information about early comic books. We are talking hundreds of comic books that nobody had ever documented before. Some comics almost 100 years older then previously thought. It was amazing to see worlds of rare comic books shared in a way that was not possible before the internet. Bob catalogued all that information from years of exchange between dozens of researchers. He then convinced Bob Overstreet to include it in his Price Guide. To Bob's credit, he put the Platinum Age catalog in its own separate section of the Guide. Peruse it and you will see a wealth of amazing, beautiful, and rare comic books. Because of Beerbohm and Overstreet's hard work, we know more about comic books than ever before! Hail Bob Beerbohm - I hope he is in Comic Book Heaven, finding new comics every day! Here are just a few of the comics shared through Bob's Platinum Group. They are in the Price Guide now because of Bob's efforts.
  7. Short run from Story Comics, who also published MYSTERIOUS ADVENTURES, classic pre-code horror title.
  8. Congrats on a pickup of a truly rare and important and exciting comic book! Only other copy I have ever seen and currently unlisted anywhere.
  9. Two Heath stories behind this Western Romance photo cover...
  10. Here's a shotgun wedding cover. Any others?
  11. Thanks to all who posted this year! It is always a treat to see the Christmas-related comic items! Merry Christmas to all!
  12. 1941 Sears giveaway. The comic is kind of tough to find, the "Wishing Whistle" that originally was distributed with it even tougher. .
  13. Well whaddaya know?!? Thanks very much for pointing that out!
  14. Those Ford Rotunda comics are classic giveaways. Only given away at the Ford Rotunda in Dearborn. According to Wankopedia: It was among the most popular tourist destinations in the United States, receiving more visits in the 1950s than the Statue of Liberty. It was destroyed by a fire on November 9, 1962. (Oddly, the cover of the 1954 version seems to foreshadow its ultimate fate.) Many contain early art by noted children's book author Richard Scarry. 1954 1955 1956 1957 1958 1959 1960 1961
  15. Omigosh, Robot Man, those light sets are all amazing! Thanks for sharing them! Do any of them still work?
