Way too cool of a thread to fall this far down the page list. Here's my only contribution. It's a shame about the minimal restoration and has some rust migration, but the book looks brand new in hand!



Any other Adventures out there?


Beautiful book.

Beautiful copy of a great book! Don't let the resto get you down, that's a great copy.

Heck, resto - or an otherwise really nice looking copy with no back cover - would be the only way I'd acquire a book like that.

Probably the rarest of the DC keys?

Great copy, congrat's.

Thanks for all the nice comments \(thumbs u

And don't get me wrong, the resto doesn't bother me a bit. I'm always happy to pay a fraction of the blue label price for a few dots of glue on the spine and centerfold!

Here's a scan of the back cover with the rust:



Given that it's already restored, I've toyed with the idea of having the staples replaced and the migration cleaned for preservation's sake. Thoughts on this?

Here's another just-picked-up copy of Adventure 40 - it's NBC (no back cover), but otherwise unrestored and has nice off-white pages, too.

She sure looks good in a mylar:
