Fantastic!!! I can't wait to see them!!! Frederic, you have incredible ST's yourself. This gives me something to strive for.

Paul,

My pleasure. You won't have to wait long to see some of the Pac Coast Strange Tales as I'm whipping out the first box today and I'm going to email Frederic the scans later on. Hopefully he can post them sometime tonight. I haven't had the chance to look at these books in a couple of months and this gives me the chance to do that. I'm like a kid in a candy store every time I can pour through these kiler books!

Nice pickups on the Bostons, Paul. I have a few Boston Strange Tales and they are all killer. That is a great collection and still somewhat underrated in my mind.

I still can't figure out how and why these early Marvel gems (Strange Tales) with FF covers and appearances are still so dirt cheap in the Guide. I guess paying multiples for high grade CGC ST's doesn't make one flinch as these books are definitely worth many times the Overstreet price.

Doug

Bronty,

No, I believe the PC ST run started with #101. There are a few pre-hero Pac Coasts, but only TOS's (37 9.2 and 38 9.6). I don't know of any others.

Thanks for asking. If anyone knows of any others that would be great. The collection seems to start around 10-11/62 (ST 101, FF 8) and then you see full runs atarting thereafter (Incredible Hulk #5, TTA #39, JIM #89). So, I don't think there would be any pre-hero books prior to ST 101 or JIM 83, etc.

Doug

Doug, those are outstanding!

Is there any history behind the 103 and 108? Non-pedigreed, but
outstanding quality.

Thanks
