from 1961!

Wow. I don't have any of the pre-Thor issues!

^ 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)?

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...

The first of a series of 5 comics Kristi decided to buy me at the weekend.

Got a stack of Classics Illustrated comics today. 25 cents each seemed nice.

The Burgomaster

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 . . .

Just bought Daredevil #1 on eBay.

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?
