I have a question for you. As a U.K. person, do you prefer Pence or Cents copies. I have a buddy who owns an LCS whose Mom is British and he always gets excited when a pence copy turns up over here. GOD BLESS...

I don't discriminate really between Pence or Cents and have lots of each.
I would normally buy whichever the higher grade.
Obviously the Pence copies have a much smaller print run and are desirable to a lot of people, but I think think that the Cents copies are more widely accepted, especially the keys.
If faced with the choice of buying Pence or Cents of equal grade, I would buy the Cents but the completist in me would get them both if I could afford them.
A few examples of both.

AWESOME!

Gotta get around to doing this someday...


Looking at your set awards, your collection would make mine look rubbish.
I would love to see a photo of those high grade early Spideys.

Excellent set of group shots.

I noticed you had Magnus Robot Fighter included among them. Which cover, of the first 10, would you rate as your favorite?

There is a MRF thread here, but it's been a while since it's been updated.

Wow, that's such a hard choice.
I love painted covers, robot covers and Russ manning anyway. Put all 3 together....phew..
If I was forced to make a decision I would chose #3 as I think that it was the first issue that I owned and the cover depicts an impossible task due to the size of the robot, that just makes you want to read it to find out whats going to happen.
I will have to look for the MRF.
What would you rate as your favorite ?

I have always liked issues 4 & 5 the best. If I have to choose just one it's issue #4.

Some lovely books there.
I always liked Steve Rude's art and the cover to Magnus Robot Fighter / Nexus #1.
I think is absolutely fantastic and very retro in style.
I dont have a scan at hand at the moment but I am sure you have seen it.

I actually had not ever seen the Nexus # 1 version of Magnus. I checked it out on the Grand Comics DB, and found it's a pretty awesome cover. \(thumbs u

I have just been and scanned issue 1 & 2
I love Steve Rude's work on Nexus and most of his other stuff, but I think he excelled himself here.
I think #1 is one of my all time favorite covers from any era.
