Wanted this one since I noticed it seems to be a precursor of the infamous Weird War 72 cover.

Three nice Unknown Soldier covers in a row (two Hitler covers).

GI Combat #201-213. Early dollar-size books. Tough, and just beautiful books. #207 with the Heath art inside is probably the worst to find.

 

Still plodding my way through getting these among other G.I. Combats. Of 201-213, I still need 203 and 210 before I have them all in VF and above.

 

Just got this one - blank space at the bottom occurs with these Dollar books on occasion. Christo_pull_hair.gif Looks pretty good otherwise - not perfect though.

Detective 404 with a nod to Enemy Ace on the cover (they are trying to make a Hammer of Hell movie in the story). Love the dark red, plus you get Adams' Batman. Too cool.

 

This is a Rosa copy I just got today. I think there is one already in the BA Batman thread, so I'll stick this one here.

I love that story. The first time I read it was in the treasury format. cloud9.gif

Me too! laugh.gif Wasn't that a great collection? An early Joker appearance by Bob Kane, a killer Jerry Robinson story, a mid-1960s Infantino, this Adams classic, and a Mike Friedrich/Irv Novick/ Giordano short to boot. Too bad most of the so-called Limited Collectors Editions weren't as tight-- they might have sold better if they'd taken better care in selecting the material.

Hey guys,

 

Saw some of the early Sgt. Rock issues, and thought I'd float a few of my faves. The Rock run from about OAAW #290 up to Sgt. Rock #330 has some real gems, not the least because of Kubert's inspired rn of covers. Here are a few of my faves.

 

OAAW #301

I got these along with the 207 I posted earlier. Wish I could afford to get all of them slabbed in nice grades like these.

That 204 is great. Nice colors, nice cover. If you don't mind me asking, where did you get it and how much did it run you?

 

The scans don't really do either justice as I just thieved them from Metropolis when I bought them. The yellow is great on the 204 and the rich earth tones on the 205 are even sweeter in person.

 

The 204 was $27. They have a slabbed 9.6 for $250 as well. But honestly, the 204 8.5 is good enough for me.

That's a kickass deal. I can't even see anything wrong with the 8.5. VF+ and VF/NM are such undervalued grades. Great pickup there, 204 is on my want-list now.
