A COUPLE VERY DIFFERENT BONDAGE COVERS….  HAPPY LABOR DAY!!

 EERIE #2

EERIE #2

(AVON)

Though issue #1 commands a much higher premium in the market, this cover is far superior.  Amazing to say the least with an early Wally Wood (of EC fame) bondage Zombie Skeleton, whatever the hell is on that dude's shoulder cover.  Available from time to time, but big money being paid with 2 raw mid grade examples ending at close to 900.00 and a grand.

13 Universal copies on the CGC census with an average grade of 6.42.  A 9.4 at the top and a 2.5 at the bottom with a pretty even spread with the remaining 11 books.

SHELF DATE of September 1951

 

 

 BRENDA STARR #14

BRENDA STAR #14

(Four Star Publications)

Arguably THE defining Bondage cover.  Add in the Headlight and Good Girl aspects of the cover and you have a monster of a Golden Age book that most not “in the know” would simply pass over.  A couple recent sales on Ebay include a Universal 4.5 copy ending at 811.00 and a 7.0 Restored copy for a little over 1000.00!!

26 Universal copies on the census with two copies in the 2.0 spot at the bottom and an impressive 9.4 and 2 9.2s at the top.

SHELF DATE of March 1948

As always, thanks for looking, folks!
