Picked up a few westerns in the last CGC VCC. Kind of hard to resist when the price of some of these 50 year old comics is about a $1 more than a modern.

I wonder what's up with the "Dan'l" as opposed to "Daniel." I wonder if this was a way to skirt some copyright issues. :???

Well this is actually in the Silver age since it's a 1958 book, It just has that Atomic Age feel! Just picked it up for a 10'er and postage! :biggrin:

It does have an atom age feel with the winged rocket ship. In 1958, the U.S. was experimenting with the X-15 rocket plane, which held speed and altitude records that I believe stand to this day. The X-15 piloted by William "Pete" Knight holds the record for the fastest winged, manned flight... he broke Mach 7. Prior to the shuttle, the X-15 was the only winged vehicle to carry humans into space. X-15 pilots went high enough to experience weightlessness and no atmosphere.

Rockets, Flying disc and jets are the epitome of Atom Age comics.

Here is a super swell combo cover...on the interior story, Dick Giordano does one of his best Wally Wood impersonations!

This is the very first EC comic I have ever owned. I picked it up from my local comic shop. Where I live, you just don't see comics from EC at all. Even though this is quite a beat up copy, I love it! :yipeeeee: Also, the small piece that is missing on the cover is actually inside the book. It came off but I still have it.

The water stain is pretty bad and the pages are really tan but not brittle.

This, strictly speaking isn't Atom Age, but it is a 1958 UK reprint of an Atom Age book, and it features a new cover (actually just an enlarged panel from the original book), but pretty cool, nonetheless...

Image

One of those "sleazy" Matt Baker romance covers :D

Image

... and, finally, a rejected Golden Age Sandman cover turning up on a 50's crime book?

When I got that Modern Love in, it was covered with some kind of scum, which the seller couldn't identify, and which I am thinking is either some kind of makeup, or some really clay-like mud... Anyway, it scraped off (mostly) :D

Here's the before and after shots, neither one photoshopped at all...

Nice VG copy of this impossible to find in grade book. VG due to piece missing from back cover as can be seen in the grading forum.
