Charlton's Space War #6-10, 1960-61. Recommended. Steve Ditko covers and art in #6, 8 and 10. Who? What? Why? and Where? Fundamental universal sci-fi teasers -- luckily enough we have Ditko & crew to answer those questions! Art by Rocco Mastroserio, Bill Molno, Dick Giordano and Charles Nicholas.

THE QUESTION Omnibus By Dennis O'Neil and Denys Cowan Volume 1
Collects The Question #1-27 & three annuals, 1987-89. Recommended.First of two volumes. Just a few short years after co-creating Spider-Man, artist and writer Steve Ditko created the Question, who worked as an investigative journalist in public and a vigilante in secret. Two decades later, writer Dennis O'Neil and artist Denys Cowan unleashed their acclaimed reinvention of the Question for the late 1980s, coinciding with one of the most creative periods in comics. While retaining familiar elements of the character--including his faceless mask--O'Neil and Cowan also imbued Vic Sage with a Zen philosophy and forced him to ask vital questions about his methods employed while fighting crime in the corrupt town of Hub City.

If your life was destroyed, and you knew that those responsible would never be held to account, how far would you go to get revenge? If you were given a chance to kill anyone you wanted, with a guarantee that the law could not touch you, would you take it? That's the opportunity that a man called Agent Graves provides, in the form of a special case containing a gun, a hundred rounds of ammunition, and total immunity for their use.

Collects the Captain America stories from Tales of Suspense #59-77, 1964-66. Our Highest Recommendation. By Stan Lee. Art by Jack Kirby. After Cap's revival from his long sleep after World War II, as recounted in The Avengers #4, here he got his first all-new series in the beginning of the Marvel Age. Marvel by agreement could still only publish eight titles a month, so they shoe-horned Cap into Iron Man's regular title, creating one of the best monthly reads in comics! Marvel, 2022...More.

Item Code: MMMC01
Soft Cover, 6x9, 216pg, Full Color
This series is now 13 titles strong. I want to say so many are my favorites, and they are. But this run of Lee & Kirby Cap 18 stories in Tales of Suspense, some taking place during World War II, are also real gems as Captain America returns to the Marvel Universe. Check out all volumes in the series here.

Imperfect Books & Posters

Recommended. By Jim Lawrence. Art by Jorge Longaron.The Friday Foster comic strip is the story of a former nightclub "camera bunny" turned photographer's assistant turned fashion model. With an innate inclination to help others and a natural beauty that makes her a magnet for men, Friday often finds herself in some very sticky situations and world-class adventures.

Limited, 500. Highly Recommended. We were excited when we saw they were redoing the fabulous door-sized poster of Vampi that Warren did back in 1972. But what we got looked like they'd been done a while back and then badly stored so that they all ended up with creases, like you'd have with a rolled poster that got slightly flattened--not totally flat, but squashed somewhat. So we refused to sell these as they were, and now offer them as-is with a full understanding of what you are getting! The original edition on Amazon starts at $199! We found more copies at $350 and $500! Here's the original blurb: "You've been begging for it! Now, you got it! Harris Comics is reprinting one of the crown jewels of Vampirella collectibles: the Jose Gonzalez Door Poster! Die-hard Vampi fans have often paid top dollar for this, but now you too will finally be able to take one home! This special edition of the poster will bear a small Vampirella 40th Anniversary logo on the bottom. Dynamite, 2020. Condition: These are wavy and creased (though not completely flat) due to being stored rolled up with something squeezing them.  ...More.
