Just because the last one didn’t work at all…
I sent up another goal… To buy a first printing TMNT #1, get it signed by Eastman & Laird and then have it graded and finally, auction that baby off! (wishful thinking, right?)
If you want to donate dollars, go here!
Cheap shot, I know.
Cleaning house at my folks, they found this complete, unopened and with original receipt in a box!!
It has some shelf wear and some wear from not sitting flat in the box it was in but otherwise its in great shape. Definitely a keeper item for my Turtles collection.
Ghostbusting Don & Dark Leo
ShreddeRaph & Krang
All these done by the awesome Erik Burnham!
Drawn by Ed Smith! “These Turtles ain’t Ninjas. I’m outta here.”
Drawn as a joke cover for me because I’m a big Ninja Turtles fan and the first time I met Ed, I was cosplaying as Rich Woodall’s Johnny Raygun. This pony has my hair & glasses along with the Raygun logo on its backside.
Ed offered up his services to do a couple sketch covers for me to auction off later this year in hopes of raising some funds for my brain tumor medication.
Since I won’t be posting or really using this page, except for maybe space for images…. That’s all folks.
This lot of TMNT #1 includes a fourth printing, con variant, FCBD/25th Anniversary printing and the Mirage color reprints!
I’ll be at Shellback Artworks first and hang out for a bit and then rush over to Jetpack Comics for a little while after that. Or maybe the other way around. Who knows?!
The third and final part of my trade is this Marvel Treasury Edition #12 featuring Howard the Duck & the Defenders!
This book is in great shape except for some small back cover issues. I haven’t taken it out of the bag & board just yet to see just how bad, but it still will make a fine addition to my Treasury collection.
The second item as part of the trade I did was this excellent copy of Superman #113 Pizza Hut reprint!
The book has a bit of spine roll, more from the bottom which has the book twisted ever so slightly to match the off cut back promo piece (not pictured) which shows some lines where it should have been cut. Even though this book was only reprinted in the late 70s, it still contains the oldest Superman material… That is to say, I own some newer reprints of older stuff but done so in a modern way. Does that make sense? Okay then.
A week or so ago, I set up a trade with a friend for some cool comic items. One of those items was this Spiderman record!
The record (so far) is playing nicely!
The storyline isn’t so bad, but these songs! Lol
Inside is the “comics”, five mini strips. The sleeve has some real wear and looks as though it has water damage, but it is all one piece… There is a poster of the front image but it has been folded wrong and is split across the center. Needs to be laminated or something to preserve it (no picture).
I will post some info on the other two items I got later…
Thanks Berik for the trade dude!
