Yeah Batmans rogues gallery over the years had some lame ones didn't it? I think it must come from always needing a halfway sounding evil villian every month.

I suppose that we forget that these comics from back in the 50's and 60's were written for kids to buy from newsstands and not the mature teen/adult collectors that buy them today, and some of them villains would of appealed to the youth then.

Mike if I had a bigger and better scanner you would be able to see where parts of the cover is missing and there are tears on the bottom of the comic and a tear on the back too. It's not perfect in any way, but I love the hell out of it! My 2013 goal was to get a copy of this @ 6.5 but I'm very happy with the 5.0 right now especially since it's still 2012! lol!

I picked these up a while ago from a discount store for a bargain price,
printed by Dorling Kindersley they also come with a really cool print that I was thinking of getting framed


But well worth picking up if you can find them cheap and your into the history of the companys

Was going to take a photo of prints from above books but used the scanner due to lack of daylight here, I can only do the Marvel one at the moment as the one from the DC Comics book is to big for my scanner



you get a colour print and a B&W line version aswell

Mike those are awesome! I bought them also for really cheap on Amazon. But my Marvel cover is different colors than yours. Those prints are awesome, and those books have so much valuable information! Amazing pickups! cheers

Awesome!!! cheers I'm planning on picking up a bunch of Masterworks this year. Much much cheaper than picking up the original issues. And you don't have to worry about ruining a valuable comic.

Sorry. I've been sucky at coming on here. But I am now dangerously close to finishing my comic room, and will post some pics soon!

We would have liked a story something like "I was kidnapped by some PowerGirl coplayers and forced into two months of being their Superman." But being sucky at showing up here is ok too. Just not as fun.

Sweet Odin's raven! I have the FF#48, but mine's a 7.5. Really good looking books, man! Sometimes I think it's cooler to see books that are 5.0-6.0 like your Avengers 4 and Hulk 181, because they still look great, but you know they were actually read and enjoyed instead of being kept perfectly flat is some creepy guy's basement for 40 years.

Johnny, I stil can;t get over those books. Just badass.

My local shop put these on ebay, and I ended up winning them all. Very low grade, but I feel like I got a good deal on them, and at least I have a beat up copy of #4 until I can get a decent graded copy.

Whoa Tad! Those are freaking awesome! cheers I absolutley love those books! You've got Cap Am, Kang and Wonder Man! You just need a few more and you will have a heck of a run of the first 15! P.s...that Avengers 4 looks way better than a 1.5

Those look really sweet Johnny. I've always loved that Flash cover. To me it looks nicer than a 6 but I have no clue on grading. I always thought the way Punisher was drawn back in the day he looked like an evil Mr. Spock.
