Was going through boxes last night and I came upon a longbox that was almost all my OO books from 1986-7. It was interesting to see what I was reading at the time and what survived in good condition vs. what didn't. My technique at the time was to put four moderns in a silver age bag. :eek: Amazingly, these all survived in 9.4-9.8. Many many others were not so lucky. The Marvel project sketch cover has amped up my nostalgia for these books. I especially like the Cloak and Dagger.

He had $100 each on them, but the Primer has a banged up upper right corner and some ripple along the right cover opening. I figure it's pressable if I ever decide to actually take that route on a book.

The Grendel #1 structurally looks great.

He said he'd take $150 for the two of them, and I was happy with that.

That's all that counts. :)

 

I love Grendel. I wish I was even more aggressive than I was...

 

The very first theft I ever encountered on eBay was a tool offering "NM" copies of Primer #2, Grendel #1-3 for $180, all signed by Wagner. This was early 1999, and would have been my first copies of all these books.

 

Sent a MO, never got the books or the comics.

Mr. Furious was not happy about that one!

(Yeah, and I'm aware that it's bordering on OUTSIDE of the Copper Age, ok? I just like you guys the best.)

And finally... if anyone has a 9.8 of this.... whoo...I want it...

My THBs are all very high grade, but Pope signed them on the inside cover and they have bled through the front cover big time. :cry:

It's not something everyone wants, but for those of us who do, finding it in HG is pretty tough. I think they PRINTED that book with dings.

Don't know how much you collect his work, but the Baltimore Comic Con THB: Comics form Mars #2, is for sale at Adhouse books... Adhouse THB Comics from Mars 2

A couple of months ago a seller was selling a whole bunch of Eclipse books and I won about 20 of them.They were taking requests for other Eclipse books and would list them on a BIN for an agreed upon price.Out of curisoity I asked if they had any of the 2D books.This is what they had for about $9 each:

The only one signed is the 3D Alien Terror.Go figure.It's also the lowest grade with a smudge to the top right corner and one corner of the spine is bent.Still,very happy to have them.

This will hold me over until I get Frank Miller:

Probably Modern, but no one cares there. I maintain that Sandman retained its Copper-ness until '95. That's my story and I am sticking to it:
