5 Book Pep Comics Lot (1940!) -@elite_comics11 is proud to offer these extremely SCARCE books, some of which have less than 10 on the GPA census. -Approximate grades and issues as follows: #8 (5.0-5.5); #9 (1.5); #12 (5.5); #16 (1.8-2.0); #20 (2.0) - some issues have tape, staining, and detached covers, but all are complete. -Please DM me for more details re: condition or for more pics. -$9,400 OBO F&F for the entire lot (will not sell individuals) 🇺🇸🦅🌊🔥 -Disclaimer: I did not detect any restoration on these golden age books. Other books from this same collection were screened by CGC and found to be unrestored. However, with books of this grade and vintage, some form of restoration is common and it’s always possible some may go undetected. So I only warrant that the book is complete; I do not guarantee any particular grade or condition (i.e., whether a third party will deem it restored or unrestored). Ask for more photos or info if needed! #igcomics#goldenage#igcomiclords#igcomicbookfamily#igcomicbooks#comics4sale#comicsforsale#comics4sale#comicsfortrade#hangman#worldwar2#scarce#rare#military#veterans#ww2#pep#pepcomics#goldenage#goldenagecomics
Attended StocktonCon yesterday and found some great books. It was a busy show and tough to walk around at times. A decent selection of actual comic vendors. I was happy to check off some very rare books that I have been chasing. Here's some highlights: . . - Best Cellars was a surprising find. I have never seen one in person and there are no graded copies online or sold. It features a prototype Goon story by Eric Powell. I don't have access to the census atm but I can't imagine there are too many 9.8's. This book has 4 black edges and a very small print run. . - Funnybook 1 is the first appearance of Cherry Poptart. . . - Pep 73 is a classic Bob Montana that has been crazy tough for me to find. . . - This is the first Witchblade 87 Adam Hughes variant I have been able to find in the wild. . - That Doomwar variant has been on my want list forever. It's not a high dollar book but for some reason after a few years of searching, I have never seen a copy in the wild. I love that 80's punk rock Storm outfit and this is a great representation. I was shocked to find two copies, (which is how it always goes, right?) So I purchased both because I have hoarding issues 😂 #stocktoncon#comicbooks#comics#vatiantcovers#thegoon#ericpowell#cherrypoptart#pepcomics#archiecomics#archie#cgc#cbcs
O Cometa (The Comet) apareceu pela primeira vez em Pep Comics # 1 em janeiro de 1940, pela editora Archie Comics. Criado por Jack Cole, Cometa era o jovem cientista John Dickering que descobriu um gás cinquenta vezes mais leve que o hidrogênio. Ao injetar pequenas doses dele em sua corrente sanguínea, ele foi capaz de fazer grandes saltos pelo ar. Depois de várias injeções, dois feixes partiram dos olhos de Dickering e quando ele os cruzou tudo o que ele estava olhando se desintegrou. Então ele fez um escudo de vidro como visor, pois é a única coisa que seus feixes não desintegrariam. Percebendo que sua descoberta poderia destruir a humanidade, Dickering destruiu a fórmula para o gás e passou a usar seus poderes para beneficiar a humanidade. Após dezessete edições, o personagem morreu em um de suas aventuras. Possivelmente foi o primeiro super-herói morto em ação na história dos quadrinhos, em 1941. *********** The Comet debuted in Pep Comics # 1 in January 1940, by Archie Comics. Created by Jack Cole, Comet was the young scientist John Dickering who discovered a gas fifty times lighter than hydrogen. By injecting small doses of it into his bloodstream, he was able to make great leaps through the air. After several injections, two bundles came from Dickering's eyes and as he crossed them all he was looking at, he disintegrated. Then he made a glass shield as a visor, for it is the only thing his bundles would not disintegrate. Realizing that his discovery could destroy mankind, Dickering destroyed the formula for gas and proceeded to use his powers to benefit mankind. After seventeen issues, the character died in one of his adventures. He was possibly the first superhero killed in action in comic book history in 1941.
