    Hi, it's a poster. I bought it recently when shopping. Wanted something dynamic, but interesting hanging on my bedroom walls. I sometimes just sit on my bed with a stack of comics admiring it.

    Not a purchase by me, as opposed to the lovely & talented Polar Bear (who of course forked out for postage as well), who sent me his duplicate copy of World's Finest #259 after I mused a few days ago about probably needing to commit myself to going after the 40 or so Dollar Comic-era issues that include Don Newton's "Shazam." The issue in question, it turns out, includes not only an example of that strip (inked by Kurt Schaffenberger) but also a Newton-pencilled (with inks by Dave Hunt & Vince Colletta, respectively) two-part Hawkman/Green Arrow adventure. Excellent!

    Not surprisingly, the Lone Star order I was even then contemplating went off last night with ... let's see ... a dozen WFs included at a median price of probably around $1.25.
    I tend to split superhero comics fans into "People who like Krypto" and "People who don't like Krypto."
    Basically, if you miss the wonder of a dog flying around in a little Superman cape, you're in the wrong hobby.

    Anyway, it is cool for you to acquire acrimony of crumbling time on blast this website.

    Just picked up X-Men #96 and #98, filling another couple of significant gaps in my collection. Beautiful Dave Cockrum art.

    I own very few WW comics, and that one on the right is one of them. I've had it since I was a kid. Don't know where or how I got it, but I remember the cover.

    Tony - congrats on the X-Men books! I know that feeling.

    hi pmpknface i love wonder woman. sometimes i try to figure out why that was/is the case and i think its because i was raised by women. The men during my childhood were all pretty terrible but the women, wow they were strong, determined. That's not to say they were perfect but I remember admiring some of them. So I think that instilled a love of powerful women in me (which probably explains my Xena fixation!). The shame of course is that pre-Crisis WW was so badly written. It was either her pining over Steve, him pining over her or her wicked mother meddling in her life (maybe being Queen of the Amazons wasn't enough to fill the day?)

    I just bought another big batch of bronze age readers. The total was 57 comics for $50 shipped, or 88 cents each. This includes:

    27 issues of Our Army at War / Sgt. Rock
    18 issues of Weird War
    12 issues of Unexpected

    I am sure I will end up with a few doubles, but at that price I had to grab them.

    Scott, I love it. You get these lots from like every genre imaginable. Do you have any idea how many books you've got? You have to be working on like 50 different runs at the same time! :D

    I am, it's kind of a mess. I know I should focus on one thing or the other, but I see these deals on Bronze Age books and I just can't help it. My checklist is pretty bizarre; my biggest categories are Archie, War, Romance and Superman Family. Then I have individual series like Conan, Dr. Strange and Wonder Woman.

    I still don't have even remotely as many comics as you do. I have been buying a ton over the last few months from dollar lots, but I think I am probably under 5000 still. It's a bit hard to say, as I moved to drawer boxes from long boxes so I no longer am sure how to estimate. I think I have close to or over a thousand comics I haven't read yet, though, which is one reason I am trying to plow though this Wonder Woman run to get a start on it all.
