When I was a kid and bought comics off of the spinner rack at Mackenzie’s party store, or Moffet’s corner store, I didn’t know or care about whether or not an issue was a reprint or not.  Marvel repackaged and recycled a lot of their silver-age stuff, and I am glad they did.  This was from August 1972.  Part of a great string of issues.  After issue #5, MTA switched to reprints of the Avengers. (y’know, that team with the Hulk, Iron man, and a few others?  LOL).

One of my favs that I still own…FF #112  15 cent cover price from 1971.  Hard to find in top grade, since the black cover shows stress marks very well.  I would estimate my copy as Very Fine, probably about a 7.5.  I’ve seen comparable copies on ebay going for about $180.  A 9.6 was on there for $1750.  Doubt they will ever get that for it, but who knows? Perfectly happy with my copy!  I always like the Hulk/thing battles…Benji usually got the worst of it, but I rooted for him anyway.

Been awhile since I posted an awesome Thor cover.  Even tho’ I’m pretty partial to the Kirby/Buscema silver and bronze age issues, this one is pretty cool…….

all i can say is, “wow!”   I’ve been a fan of Ennis since his Hellblazer days.  wow, is this guy over the top.  I’ve just finished book #3, and even tho it’s over the top, it’s probably as close to what it would be like with real superheroes this side of Watchmen.
