Great thread. Sure are some wonderful books being posted here. Here's one of my favorites from my collection.It came from a bound volume and has some resto on the spine,which kept the price down,and I couldn't be happier. It's a beautiful copy in hand.. :cloud9:

Are Planet Comics more susceptible to tanning than other Golden Age comics? I last 5 or so Planet comics I have held in person have all had very tan inner covers. Also I have inquired about several Planet comics online and the majority have had tanning.

 

Thanks

I would say no more than any other title.

Hmmm,

 

I can't seem to find any of the later issues for sale (65 and up) without tanning. I guess all the goods ones are being hoarded. :frustrated:

Fiction House books are notorious for lower quality production, and that can include the paper they printed on so it is not uncommon to see tanning. The thing is I see tanning on all titles printed before 1950.

Thanks that's good to know. The reason I thought it might be unique to Planet's is that the ones I have owned seem to have perfectly fine pages, but the inside of the covers are very brown. I have not seen this on any of my other comics. Usually a book is brown all over, makes me wonder if the paper they used for the covers is poor.

I think the further you go back in time then this becomes more prevalent. Of the 4 planets I own so far the PQ is OW x 2, COW & OWW. That's not too bad I think. I only really worry about Brown or heavily tanned pages (in any books), which I don't see too often or anything that's Brittle. I have limited experience with planet books but they don't seem too different from other GA books in terms of quality of paper used, but I would say that EC books definitely used superior paper to their contemporaries.

I picked up this rare Canadian edition of Planet Comics from Heritage recently, and wanted to thank Jason ( jhutton2 ) for the tip on the availability of the book. I don't always check the weekly auctions so I probably would have missed it:

Decent looking copy that I think fits in perfectly with the other 3 issues I have and completes the Canadian Edition set:
