Neat books, never seen them before. I didn't know there was a "bat hound" and it has a mask too. Also a "super key" where does Superman keep it, under the super door mat or perhaps the super key chain.

Ace wears a mask to prevent other dogs from knowing who he is, natch! (They really do include that in the stories!)

He was often shown on the cover and included in stories for a couple years. Probably an attempt imitate the success of Krypto.

Love the thought of Supe stuffing the key under the mat!

WOW tth!

I think the expression is throw down the gauntlet, not the sword, your armor, and the horse!




And I didn't even break out the big gun yet! Seriously, it's always nice to have an excuse to show off a few books, and to see other people's books. I love 10 cent SAs!!!

And very nice books, Actions below 300 are really tough to find in HG. I've said it before, but HG SA from 1956-1962, even mainstream titles, is often harder to find than a lot of HG GA. So few pedigrees cover this "dead" period for comics, and the few that do, such as White Mountain and Bethlehem, can be erratic in terms of grades, as you've pointed out. It's rumored that Western Penn goes back to this era, but I've only seen drips and drabs, although what little I've seen was very sharp.

scan 4 -- the scanner can't really capture the colors on this one.






Very cool A-Bomb cover! Great colors on that one.
Even though the cover states that WW just saved Steve, with her hands in that position it looks as if she's about to make his neck go *SNAP*!

scan 2 -- to forestall any questions, the upper right staple is not rusty -- just the shadow from scanning.






This is one BEAUTIFUL BOOK!

This is actually one of my favorite books in my collection. The cover colors and gloss just jump out at you.

I'm getting ready to start a Dennis the Menace thread, so here is a preview: The best known copy of an impossible book to find in high grade. I've been looking since I was ten and this is the best I've ever seen. By the way, this IS a ten center, not a zero center!!! Keep the posts coming -- I'm loving it so far. Great thread idea, tth2!!!
Joe

Thanks. I've been reading old posts and noticed that you had purchased the Dennis ebay lot. I tracked that lot but had other priorities at the time. those are wonderful books. post more when you get a chance.
