Here is my hole punched Ghost Rider #6 that I bought off the boards. I absolutely love the cover plus it has white pages!

any idea how much #1 is worth say in 5.0-7.0?

Careful there, Kev.  A significant portion of my collection looks like this:  :cry:

whats the story?

i'm a big mystery in space/strange adv collector.  I was picking up as many as I could around 6 years ago because i knew they were undervalued and it has paid off big time.  These books still have room to grow-DC blew away marvel in the sci fi dept hiring actual sci fi writers like edmond hamilton and otto binder to write em.  the art was also top notch with infantino and whatnot.  marvel mainly went with the monster of the week.

I had the same reaction as Bob/RobotMan when I ran across these back in 1976.  Several hundred sweet Atlas at $1 each.  :whatthe:  Needless to say, I bought the dealer out.  :devil:  Here's just a small sample of what I added to my permanent collection that day:

Several hundred at $1.00 each? I would have bought him out as fast as I could open my wallet!

i met some girl and got her number called few days later and she invited me over.  She then proceeded to pull a Cindy on me and after 30 minutes of sitting there while she yakked on the phone I got up to leave.
"Oh are you leaving?"
"Yes I had a great time but I think I'll take off now"
She called me 3 days in a row but I never picked up the phone.

That’s a very nice looking 2.5.

As a relative newbie to the hobby, I'm legitimately shocked at how many of these are, and how proudly they are posted!

I've accepted some pretty raggy EERIEs and other Warren mags at times, but I'd have to draw the line at 3 holes punched in the book.  That just does NOT present well AT ALL!

...to me, but hey, if your books give you pleasure...

I think I'm more bothered by writing on the cover, which a lot of people don't seem to mind at all, and which seems to be a lesser grade reduction.

I've seen some that were obnoxious, but I don't mind a small unobtrusive date or something like that.  Some kid's name would bother me.

But I'd actually pay a premium for that "six to midnight" Batman cover...

Seeing many Planet Comics in pretty beat condition going for some stiff prices.  So, for me a couple of clean cut holes on an otherwise nice condition comic is great with me.

mystery in space and strange adventures will be the planet comics of the future.

Now that's a wild back cover!  :whatthe:  Almost certainly made with a hand-held device known as a railway ticket punch.  Most had a maximum reach of 1" (which would explain why the punched holes are only in the margins of the unbound edges).  But why?  My guess would be mindless boredom, with no special purpose.  Thanks for sharing something I've never seen before!  (thumbsu

I once was at an auction and there were several boxes of atomic age and pre code books like this some were 3/4th covers as well. Came from a drug store and forgotten in the back room. An amazing stash of great reading books. Was the only bidder and probably paid around 25 cents each or a little less. Took me a long time to read and figure out what the issues were. Had a blast with them. I have since replaced most with better copies but probably still have some left in my collection. These are for folks on a budget with a true love of the medium not just “investment”…
