I don't have very high-grade Gold or Keys (No 8.5 FF #1). Those are pretty low-to-mid-grade, but some of my stuff's kind of unique. I collect quite a bit of odd-ball stuff - outside of the standard DC and Marvel.

This is one of my favorites in my collection. Again, low-grade. But not something everyone's seen.
Spirit #1 (March 1952).

OK, so this one IS a very nice grade. Anyone know what's special about it?

Spirit covers have a lot going on. HEY!!! That's an ape cover smile

I've got a SDCC#2. For being some well known, Don Martin doesn't have many covers. Found my copy in a quarter box. There's some major comic star contributing to that book - lots of potential. Right now, the big draw is the Hellboy sneak preview.

That's it! It's really his 1st appearance outside of some rough concept prototype sketch in an Italian magazine.

Roy Rogers #71 (Nov 1953).
This... is... interesting. It's from the 50s when things were a lot less politically correct, so it has the "injun" (not Native American) say things like "Ugh. Me gettum horse!". Yikes.

Things have changed. Things that were commonplace and ignored are now offensive.

We can only pray it never does.

Back to odd stuff, Tales Calculated to Drive You Bats #1 (Nov 1961). Horror/Humor mix. Not that funny.
