Title: COMIC BOOKS
Post by: RCMerchant on December 14, 2019, 05:27:21 AM
Do you like comics?

I buy alot of Sgt.Fury comics from the 60's.
Back when I was a kid, I bought comics every chance I had. That and monster movie mags...I still do.

I'm looking at this one now.

I know it's odd that I like war comics I reckon- but I do. I have lots of Sgt.Fury and Sgt.Rock.

I guess I outgrew comic books. They were great when I was a kid. I think the last comic book I bought was Superman vs. Muhammad Ali.
That said, I'd be interested in reading vintage comic books. When I was in Paris (France) years ago we went to some book store of sort. There I found a book with a collection of comic book/art by some French comic book writer that illustrated his work from the late 1960s to 1970s. It was pulp/horror/sleaze with a touch of S&M. Would've been a great coffee table book. I still regret not buying it.

I have a lot of British comics from the 80's and 90's, which alas don't have a lot of collectors value but I like them. Got several collections of older collected works, mostly horror type comic strips like Tale of the Zombie or Hookjaw. I like to keep an eye out for something with Axl Pressbutton being reissued but no joy so far.

Been reading comics since about the mid-to-late 90's.  (A time when a lot of people say comics where at their worst). 

Mostly super heroes, especially Green Lantern.

I do like Eric Powell's The Goon and his recent series Hillbilly, which can be described as Conan the Barbarian set in early 19th century Appalachia.

Love comics.

Mostly into Marvel titles.  Doctor Strange, Howard the Duck, Hulk. 

The Mask comic from Dark Horse was insane, loved that. 

Ninja Turtles.  A whole bunch of comics really.

I love comics. I have about 12 long boxes full of them (actually, a very small collection compared to most collectors). My sweet spot is comics that were published prior to 1990 (most of my collection is 1960s and 70s). I prefer Marvel, but I've been building a pretty decent DC collection in recent years: Justice League of America, Green Lantern, The Flash, The Atom, Action, Superman, Batman, Detective, Brave and the Bold, Teen Titans, Phantom Stranger . . . just about anything.

I'm mostly a Marvel guy and the 80s and 90s were my era.  I really started getting out of it about the time they launched the New Avengers and everything turned into decompressed events.

Yea I have some comics. I need to get back into reading Neil Gaiman's Sandman series.
Been reading comics since about the mid-to-late 90's.  (A time when a lot of people say comics where at their worst). 

It's usually the early to mid 90's that they were at their worst imo. For Marvel it was longer, DC got lucky with some of the best stories coming from the mid to late 90's. Image Comics was the new kid in town, and it's flagship comic, Youngblood, had so many delays between issues that it became a joke.

Sweet finds!

But yes, I love comics.

These days I read a lot of graphic novels and comic book collections.

I really love Swamp Thing, both vintage and when Alan Moore took over. Also the new horror/supernatural series, Gideon Falls is really good. I also really enjoy Vampirella, any era of that one really, and The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

Some of my favorite graphic novels are Black Hole, The Watchmen, and Maus.

Post by: chainsaw midget on January 29, 2020, 11:07:51 AM
I recently finished a read through of ... most of the original Hellblazer series. 

Wonderful stuff, except for the final few years when they introduced a spunky young girl with blue hair as a new love interested and had John marry her.  The series went straight to hell at that point, and not like the good times when the characters would actually go to hell. 

So I skipped ahead to the final issue.  I've checked multiple message boards and nobody can quite figure out what happened in that issue. 

Oh well.

I just started re-reading my Amazing Adventures: War of the Worlds/Killraven collection again. It started out as a great series, but the excitement fizzled out and they never even put any closure to the story. The series just ended with a strange, surreal final issue.

These days I read a lot of graphic novels and comic book collections.


I scored this one last week when the local comic store finally opened up after over a month because of our local COVID-19 "hunker down" order by the mayor. I could have ordered it for $9 less on Amazon, but I paid $30 to support the local small business instead; plus I didn't have to wait for shipping when I was holding it in my hands at the store.  :cheers:

In late July I ordered $560 worth of Amazing Spider-Man comics from an online retailer. The package seemed to be taking longer than expected to arrive so I checked the USPS tracking information. There was a message that said the package could not be delivered or returned to the sender and was being sent to the dead mail office. I contacted the seller and he said the post office destroyed the package in a mail sorting machine. I got a full refund, but the thought of those comics being destroyed is horrifying.

I'm bidding on these 4 books at the moment- my max is $100.
A Vampi #1 can go for well over 600 bucks... this is as high as I go. High as I ever bid on comics. But it's a Vampi #!!
I think I may have a good chance of winning, because the guy selling is not a comic book dealer. So the auction is going under the radar.

I just bought this-
from 1965-

(https://i.imgur.com/P11XmM7.png) (https://lunapic.com)

Back in 1970, we moved into an old farmhouse, and there was an old school desk in the upstairs bedroom, which had a pull out drawer underneath the chair. It was full of old DC comics from the 50's and early 60's.
Like Burgo, I prefer Marvel comics (big fan of Sgt.Rock, though); this is a nice flashback.
And the back cover is icing on the cake!

Unfortunately, it's from the 80's revival by Eclipse comics. Too much cussing for my tastes, but it has a dinosaur on the cover, so that's nice.  :smile:

From what I've read so far the dinosaur doesn't have much bearing on the plot. :/

Thanks guys. But sometimes I feel like I'm burning money on stuff I don't need.
I pay all the bills, cook all the food- I dunno. I always feel guilty when I buy something.
But I keep doing it so- f**k it.  :lookingup:

If you have taken care of the essentials in life why should you feel bad about getting some extras?

I had a copy of this- but sent it to Sister Grace looong ago.
So I bought it again!

Nice! I buy Challengers issues occasionally. I have around 20 of them. Good change of pace from the usual superhero stories.

^ have quite a few Atlas Kirby/ Ditko giant monster comics from the late 50's, early 60's.- all in horrible shape Not the 70's reprints (though I have some of them too).


Been trying to find this one at a reasonable price. Cost me $16.00 plus postage.
I always loved this Frazetta cover.

Hey there, RCMerchant - congrats on the CREEPY 15! I have been getting into CREEPY and EERIE lately and would love to pick up a couple of Corben issues... what's a realistic price range lately (if $16 is a steal)?


Title: Re: COMIC BOOKS
Post by: RCMerchant on August 02, 2021, 11:41:11 AM
It all depends on the issue. 70's Creepy's with Corben art go for about-roughly- $20.00 . It's all about condition too.
Happy hunting! I have 100's of comic mags and 60's and 70's monster mags, most in bad shape- but I don't worry about condition too much.

I just bought this one, with Corben and John Severin art ( 2 favorites), for $19 bucks- and that was after shipping costs.

Nice job!

I was out of collecting for a long time - a LONG time - and am still trying to work up my dander to make routinely large purchases, which for me are uhh over $10!  :lookingup:    I'll happily drop tons of cash on dollar bin books but somehow I'm too cheap to invest in comics that are actually valuable. Managed to pick up a NEARLY complete run of KAMANDI here and there over the past three months (only missing three issues now), and mostly for under ten bucks. Dropped $18 on a NM #1, and somehow $20 and $21 respectively on the oddly harder-to-find #2 and #3. I wouldn't do that for just anyone, but it's Kirby's KAMANDI! Those are the most expensive purchases I've made for single issues in years.

I seem to recall spending in that neighborhood for HARBINGER 2 + 3 as a kid in the early 90s, and might have even dropped $35 on a HARBINGER #1, which I regretted for a decade or so, yet now it seems like a good buy again.

But every time I ogle an UNCANNY X-MEN 129 on Ebay, the bidding goes way over $200 and my eyes roll back in my head.......  :bluesad:

Still, vintage Corben seems worth a few tens...

I recently got a few more key issues from eBay:

* Amazing Spider-Man #101 - 1st Michael Morbius, the living vampire
* Amazing Spider-Man #121 and #122 - Death of Gwen Stacy and Death of the Green Goblin

Just made an offer for Sub-Mariner #5 - 1st Tiger Shark


The search continues . . .

When Daredevil #1 arrives, I'll have #1 - 130, plus about 30 issues with higher numbers. Woo-hoo!

Out of pure curiosity RC, do you bid on ebay for your comics, or is there a specialist auction site?

I've been picking up the Trade Paper backs of KaijuMax  which is which is basically  OZ with Ultraman monsters.

The artwork is colorful and cartoonish, but the tone and stories are anything but.

I'm not RC (I could never live up to that standard), but here is where I buy mine:

* Mostly eBay, but I prefer "buy it now" to auctions (because I'm impatient)
* NewKadia - I've used this website for years. No auctions, just click and buy. They run daily, weekly and monthly sales (sometimes as much as 50% off, but usually 25 - 30%)
* Comic Connect - I just discovered this website a couple months ago. They have "buy it now," "make an offer" and "auction" options. The drawbacks are: 1) you may need to wait 3 weeks or more to receive your order 2) if you use a credit card, they charge a 3% fee.

I usually bid on ebay.
But I always look for the comics in bad shape. Condition is not a concern of mine.
If I can afford it-!

Burgo- I will never get close to how many comics you got.
I do have a large collection of monster movie magazines!

(https://i.imgur.com/9ZdYGNJ.jpg) (https://lunapic.com)

This is the first issue I ever bought in 1970. I was 8.
I had seen the mag before when I was in a foster home in 1969. The teenage son of my foster parents had a stack of them!
