I wanted to keep focused on high grade raw keys, primarily Silver Age but certainly open to some Bronze Age as well.
When Marvel killed off Gwen Stacy in Amazing Spider-Man #121 and #122, that was the beginning of my loss of interest.
Hard to believe but the Bronze Age is now 40 years old and a lot of the properties from that time period are really at the forefront of the collecting industry now. As a collector I am drawn towards the Silver Age, now as a business man I recognize the value in seeking out Bronze 1st appearances in high to ultra high grade. For the next couple of days I have been going over in my head the books that I had to leave behind. Dennis is an admitted "Son of the Silver Age", having grown up with the influences of Silver Age greats: Kirby, Colan, Romita and Buscema.Three decades later, he is the creator of Crash!!
One thing that I left out of this post was that another great advantage to buying raw is that you don’t pay the premium associated with buying CGC slabbed books as well.Another great value once you get pretty comfortable with grading , is you can actually slab the raw books yourself if you are so inclined for either your personal collection or to sell and generate capital to continue your quest for your Holy Grails! Hi Dennis, your right, nothing like picking up a comic that is 40-50 years old and looks just like it came of the comic rack spinner! Now I realize this site is read by people from all over the world, and if you have been following the posts here the last few days, a lot has been said about it already. Checking out who was there and what was available and where I needed to spend more time at on Saturday.


Now it didn’t happen overnight but I can pinpoint that as single story that contributed to my loss of interest in my beloved hobby. Moon Knight’s 1st appearance, Werewolf By Night, Power Man, Iron Fist, Shang Chi, many of these characters slated for upcoming TV or movie appearances. There is probably some financial upside in grabbing those properties before they also go through the roof. Now I have never seen this book before and in all honesty being a Marvel Silver Age collector wasn’t even aware of this title except in passing. The 2nd appearance of Him (who would later become Adam Warlock) and a full outĀ fist waving Kirby slugfest with that great white cover, so hard to find in high grade! So I will leave it at that except to say I was there looking for raw comics in particular but I was looking for one CGC graded book as well. Now I am not a fan of pouring through long boxes, and am really not a fan of long boxes that are not in alphabetical order, as that to me just eats up time with absolutely no guarantee of results. I collected voraciously for another 20 years before selling my entire collection in 1992 only to come back about ten years later and start all over again.
Thanos, all the great Jim Starlin Captain Marvel and Warlock story arcs, all are about 40 years old.
I picked this up on Friday, and when I went through it that night I was once again blown away at how complete the first appearance of this title is and how far ahead of its time.


I’ll take this book any day over the current hot book, Avengers #55, first appearance of Ultron. Again, for me there is nothing like handling a book that is 50 years or more old, and it looking like it was just published. For me it was the Silver Age, and I never grow tired of trying to find a better copy, or another excellent copy of my favorites. Something about holding and reading a 50 year old book that looks like it was just published turns my crank more than any CGC book can! First appearance of Annihilus and the birth of Franklin Richards (although they never named him in that issue).
It is such a powerful connection to the days gone by, and yet a powerful reminder of all the years of joy that this great hobby affords us!
It took almost 50 years for that to reach the masses through billion dollar movies and weekly TV series.
