  1. No offence Alex (and you know I love you like a brother) but the signature on that book is better than the artwork.
  2. Just got my most recent set of books from Alex. As always, they were well packaged and full of gems. I worked it out last week that I have been buying SS for more than 3 years and I have got more than 95% from Alex and he is still my favourite seller after all this time.
  3. Well technically, I bought a HOM 174 for around $900 or so from greggy, so that's at least two in a row. That's still a good jump, but its warranted because it's increasingly being called a "key". In reality it has reprinted stories and no Cain-just a cool cover and being first in the new mystery format. and it has an Adam's involvement on the cover.
  4. i dunno. maybe my point is that i just got Hawkman 12 CGC 8.0 with Murphy Anderson's sig on the first page. i'm not involved in this other stuff. is that okay with everybody? Sal....writing the blokes name on the first page yourself doesn't count. Just joking......the blue label makes it seem like it is not a signed book, plus I hate the inconsistency with the way CGC handles unverified sigs. Great book....great sig.....
  5. and so Sal your point is...............
  6. Very nice pirate. I love weis and hickman. Currently reading the death gate cycle for about the millionth time.
  7. Stunning. i have never seen those books before. Thanks for sharing.
  8. I am glad that you have reconciled yourself with this scenario and have been able to rationalise the facts into "it was only a one off" and therefore he is good old Doug again. I can't do that same rationalisation........if he hadn't been caught mis appropriating funds would he have still been doing it? if he says he would press....why would I not believe he would do it to a pedigree book (i.e. so he has degrees of greed in that any book that isn't a pedigree he is more than willing to press up but a pedigree book is sacrosanct?) and on top of that he has been caught lying about the JIM (at least to one of the board members involved)........If I was to do an operational risk assessment on him I would have to rate him as a high risk..... I have tried to stay out of the debate as I am not really keen on mudslinging and to me there aren't any shades of grey either. He won't get anymore business from me.........
  9. Right now I just can't do it.......there is no logic in it at all, it is purely emotional.
  10. All but one of them has a 1 in it ...........
  11. I take it the Church copy, graded a mere 9.4 by CGC, which is currently up on Heritage's January Signature Auction, is not adequate? Tim...I have a watch bid on it (as well as on the 9.0) but I won't buy anymore slabs. I own araich's restored #7.5 and I think it is just the most wonderful cover. I gave it to my wife and she has it on display in our bedroom.
  12. B&B #54 NM+ B&B #34 NM+ Miss America #1 NM+ Bat #171 NM Looney Tunes #1 VF/NM
  13. An amazing story and great reading. Thanks for the scans.
  14. Let's not go too far. Superman is the strongest of all.............
  15. Thor has a hammer.....(just like Hank).....Hulk is the strongest.
  16. Just thought I would share some thoughts sent to me from one of the two guys who bought the Jack Adler collection. The reason I have placed it here is that to me the important part of the collection relates to the BA DC Horror genre. Robert from keycomics (ebay id) has been supplying me for quite a while with stunning horror coloured covers, approval covers and production proofs. I know that I should be posting some of this stuff (like the signed Adams HOM #174) but work truly impacts on this and I just haven't got my scanner hooked up to my lap top. I will make a concerted effort to do this in the near future. I hope that you enjoy reading about this truly remarkable man.
  17. As soon as I get back from interstate I will get it scanned.
  18. This has been discussed before, and the conclusion was no Adams. However, it looks suspiciously like Adams to me. If it was not Adams then why would he have personally signed the cover.... You guys might have discussed and dismissed but obviously adams believed he worked on it.
  19. Having just finished perusing Shiver's site (great work) I just thought that I would relate a piece of trivia that I was told by a dealer I buy off. For those who don't know, I collect cover art and my favourite art is the DC Horror from the Adler collection. A month ago I bought the approval cover to HOM #174 and was very surprised when I received the following from the dealer.... "House Of Mystery #174 Approval Cover SIGNED IN SILVER BY NEAL ADAMS. This 1968 issue is the momentous moment that kicked off the horror revival for DC, opening the door for House Of Secrets to start back up, and in the new horror format, the following year, with issue #81, and leading to horror in Unexpected, and eventually Witching Hour, Beware, Sinister House, and all the others! Mr. Adams related how he and Infantino worked together, at the same time, developing this cover, and it had all listeners in awe. (In addition: The classic image was later modified & re-colored and used for the front cover of DC Limited Collector's Edition #C-23, a huge horror treasury edition.) This landmark cover has long been credited just to Infantino, as such it is way undervalued, at least until it becomes more recognized for also being Adams! " What do you guys think?
  20. Here is a teaser for you all.....what is the first Neal Adams horror cover?
