    RE: This week's batch of oldies.

    Always a treat to see your new/old books. Someone should compile a database of all of these cool covers
    Thanks for sharing!

    I don't know how many of you buy Back Issue, but the new one just came out and since it's about Treasury Editions, they published it treasury size. I don't know if it's genius or if I should smack them, since I have no way of storing it. It's pretty cool, though, I have to say. Of note for those who might be interested: The gigantic cover is a really sweet Alex Ross re-interpretation of Mike Grell's Legion of Superheroes Treasury Edition cover. Check it out:



    Except, being a treasury edition, it's about the size of my house.

    Not a huge acquisition or anything but it was the only Moore era Swamp Thing appearance I hadn't read or acquired.

    I received my giant lot of romance book today and am pretty much over the moon. I will be posting some pictures once I get them all sorted out.

    One issue in here was really odd, though, namely Young Romance #164. You know how comics sometimes have an image transfer on them, like if they are stacked when the ink is still wet you might get a couple words form the back cover of one book imprinted on the front of the next? Well, this issue of Young Romance, like 20% of the back cover is imprinted with the front cover from Mystery in Space #91. Enough so I can read the logo and figure out the issue number from the picture. Of course, that issue of Mystery in Space came out three years before this Young Romance, so it must have happened due to some kind of mishap with the owner's collection. It's really weird to see though.

    Here's a picture:

    Here's what a stack of 67 silver and bronze age DC romance books looks like:




    Another angle so you can see the great silver age cover on top there:




    Here's a selection of mid-grade giant-size issues:

    The older romance comics are pretty cheesy reading wise imho though. It's like I love Lucy stuff in some ways - it hasn't fared the test of time well. It makes Archie romance stuff look positively glowing by comparison.

    Congrats on the romance books. I tracked these 70s titles down several years ago, and they were very tough to find compared to other books of the same era. I'm still working to complete my runs of some of the early 50s romance comics.

    These two arrived today. Hulk #182, of course, has the third (brief) appearance of Wolverine. Star Wars #1 I just love for the art...

    I invested in Treasury bags & boards a while ago. I only had to buy the 1 pair of B&B's, but they come in handy. I also have a near complete collection of Marvel Treasury books, so you know I put them to good use. ;)
