Decided to start a back issue thread here at the new forum (maybe it will kickstart some more activity; or maybe not).
I went under the ID of 'thatjerk', which of course was not my price guide login, so the name's changed.

In the old forum I had a thread dedicated to my Marvel 70's monster and horror reprint runs that I was starting to add other stuff to just before the crash. I may post some of that stuff again too.
After completing the reprint books and my run of Fantastic Four 1-300, I've been kind of going for other things to satisfy the collecting bug.
One thing I picked up in the past year were these issues of Uncanny X-men. I already had 3 of the Neal Adams issues as part of work I did grading someone's collection for them, and realized that while I don't care about the 'old' X-men, I love the Adams issues and decided to complete those:

Picked this one up recently. I always liked Fin Fang Foom since I first read this in Crazy Magazine.

Thanks. There's something special about Mr. Fin Fang Foom. With a bit of luck, maybe he'll get in one of the Iron Man movies.

And a shot of books that I went to have graded at PGX back in the early days of being on the forum (I guess that was over 10 years ago now). I'm a much older and wiser man these days.

Stunning books you can be well proud of!


My run is complete from #30 - #100 and a lot above #100 but far from complete.

I only finished the run because I'm not quite as fussy on grade as yourself. Still tried to go for solid copies though, otherwise there wouldn't have been as much fun or challenge trying to get the run together. You have a lot of really nice books in your collection that I would love to have.

I'm with you on the grading issue. I'm not fussy about the grades on most of my books so long as I can read them with out fearing that they will fall apart in my hand. A complete run is still a complete run, after all. And you have a nice run. You can always upgrade later if you feel the need.

That is indeed your coverless FF. I was briefly considering getting one of those recreation covers put on it at one time, but it didn't feel right (and would have felt disrespectful to the previous owner). And they told me they couldn't guarantee to keep the original staples.

The cover-ed one is the Golden Records reprint. The picture is using the art of placement to hide the obvious deficiencies of the books (#7 has a big piece out of the bottom right corner, for example).

I picked up 9 and 10 from Doug Sulipa, and 6 from mycomicshop and 7 at a local show. The rest were from eBay.

I totally hear you on the recreation cover. I had considered it as well but also decided not to. Even to GR Reprint is a cool thing to have. smile

Tex -- I know you like that one. That's why I re-posted it. I'm quite happy with this one as I paid less for it than raw copies in lower grade were going for at the time on eBay.

Not sure if I
ever posted this one on the old board or not, but shortly after finishing up my
FF run, I decided to start grabbing all Dr. Doom appearances prior to 1980.
Still working on these, but I knocked off the most expensive one right off the
bat (although those Hero For Hire ‘where’s my money, honey’ issues are a bit
pricey now. Should have got those before Netflix announced the Luke Cage show):
