I think that's why i have been seeking so many out. With CGC still planning to slab pulps in the near future, I think we are in a moment before the 'boom'. Sure there are many already in the stratosphere, decided by the faithful who have kept the market alive , there are many sleepers in my opinion with killer cover content -something comic collectors appreciate, and classic stories and authors (though unlike comics which i read, i am strictly a pulp collector for the cover art, which i absolutely love). 

I have “accumulated” great pulp covers for over 20 years. I rarely seek out many but they have always been things I grabbed when I had the opportunity. I have read a number of the shudder pulps but mostly collected covers. Always have been up to the past few years, VERY affordable compared to comics.

I have slowed down quite a bit due to prices and the fact that they are so thick they take up a lot more boxes. I have simply run out of space. So if I buy more, I have to sell some.

Same with paperbacks and Big Little Books. Comics are and have always been my first love…

Yes, you have displayed many a great pulp cover here RM that i have admired over the years before jumping in: The Fantastic Adventures with the woman trapped in the giant dogs jaws, The 'Babies for Sale' Green Lama cover, and the Canadian Uncanny Tales to name a few (worship)

And the few i have already have almost filled the space i set aside to store them because they are thick, which means i will have to cap it soon as comics are still my first love as well
