Classic Cover of the Week 4/11/2016
New Week, New Covers!!
MARVEL TALES #116
Those “In the Know” are in a perpetual state of searching for this gem. Those not hip to it would pass it by in a bin with out giving it a second thought. Personally I am not a huge fan of the cover, though it does have a “rabid” fan base 😉
10 Universal copies on the CGC census, average grade of 5.25 with the top being 2 8.0 examples and the low being a lone 2.0.
SHELF DATE of July 1953
BULLS EYE COMICS #11
Same company that brought us one of the most desirable Skull covers in Punch Comics #12 also debuted this issue about a year earlier. Cover was penciled and inked by George Tuska and as is with most of these obscure 1940s books, it's plain and simple a ghost.
0 on the Census says it all.
SHELF DATE of May 1944
As always, thanks for looking, folks!
