Covered 365: Day 270

House of Mystery #270, DC Comics, July 1979, Artist: Joe Orlando. We’ve seen variations on this theme before, most famously on the cover of Suspense Comics #3, Joe Orlando’s ambitious attempt at the scene on the cover of House of…

Covered 365: Day 263

Uncle Scrooge #263, Walt Disney, February 1992, Artist: Don Rosa. Any one of these would have handily won the day yesterday. I was always a Carl Barks guy until someone years ago showed me a hardcover book celebrating Don Rosa’s…

Covered 365: Day 267

New Funnies #257, Eastern Color, July 1958, Artist: John Carey. Man! John Carey’s cover to New Funnies #257 was hard to pick, especially since my yesterday’s pick. Yeah, it has the sky blue but you gotta believe me when I…

Covered 365: Day 132

Undervalued Spotlight #374

Archie’s Christmas Stocking #2, Archie Comics, 1994. A thousand pardons for mis-timing this one, I could have sworn Christmas fell on a Tuesday and incorrectly lined this one up date wise.  Good thing that tis the season for forgiveness. The…

Undervalued Spotlight #149

Jackpot Comics #4, MLJ Magazines (Spring 1942) I’m not sure how I let this one go for so long. Perhaps it’s because I’ve been on a bit of an Archie kid lately? Anyway, this comic book is currently very undervalued.…

Undervalued Spotlight #137

Archie Comics #7, MLJ Magazines (March-April 1944) I heard through a contact that a CGC graded 6.5 Pep Comics #22 (1st appearance Archie Andrews, Dec 1941) sold for around $120,000. The deal apparently went down at a dealer booth at…

Undervalued Spotlight #106

Pep Comics #36, MLJ Magazines, February 1942 This is the 3rd time I’ve chosen a Pep Comic. Undervalued Spotlights #81 and #5 both featured great Pep issues and Pep #36 belongs right up there with them as far as I’m…
