Classic Cover of the Week 2/22/2016
Catman Comics #28
Pretty cool but seldom seen LB Cole cover. No surprise here but 0 online active or completed to compare to though there is 1 active in a live auction session.
18 Universal copies on the CGC Census, 1 9.4 at the top, I would wager this is a pedigree copy, probably the Church and 2 2.5s at the bottom with a total average of 5.11.
SHELF DATE of June 1945
Bobby Benson's B-Bar-B Riders #14
Besides having one of the greatest names on a comic, this also features a “cartoonish” Bondage, Skeleton, Shrunken/Severed Head cover. Though mainly considered a Western and featuring the original Ghost Rider, this single issue sticks out like a sore thumb in the line up of 20 issues it ran for. There are actually a fair number of copies up online and come to auction somewhat regularly.
37 Slabs with an average of 6.93 on the CGC census. 2 8.5s at the top and a single 2.5 at the bottom. Average grade of 6.93 mainly because of the 11 8.0s up there.
SHELF DATE of Spring/Summer 1952
As always, thanks for looking, folks!
