    “Actually, Spider-Man’s webbing would make horrible dental floss, because of the choking hazard.”

    Hi, Mike. Just curious: when something like this arrives, do you end up keeping a bunch for your own personal collection, or do you usually end up selling everthing?

  • Sean Mageean says:

    What about a Marvel Team-Up where Spider-Man and the Crest Team stop the Cavity Creeps from destroying Toothopolis…???

  • Mikester says:

    Rich – I only rarely keep anything out of collections that come in. Mostly I’m looking for a few straggling Seaboard/Atlas comics, some Gold Key/Charlton Popeyes, fanzines, and Turoks. This collection pictured actually had a half-dozen Turoks that I need to check against my want list, so whatever I don’t need will go out for sale.

    DESCTRUCTOR and VAMPIRE PLANET (or was it Planet of Vampires?) are the best ones!

    Re: Atlas/Seaboard, I think Weird Suspense featuring the Tarantula, The Grim Ghost, and Morlock 2001 were good in their own odd ways. But Howard Chaykin’s The Scorpion is probably the best of the bunch. Rich Buckler’s Demon Hunter was also intriguing. Both characters got reincarnated at Marvel under new names–Dominic Fortune, and Devil-Slayer. And then Buckler had one issue of the self-published Galaxia magazine where Demon Hunter was retooled a third time as Bloodwing.

    You are overlooking WESTERN ACTION, with superb work by Doug Wildey.

  • Sean Mageean says:

    I don’t recall ever seeing a copy of Western Action –but I agree that Doug Wildey is a superb artist. I did enjoy his art and storytelling on the Jonny Quest issues he drew for Comico and also his Rio story, serialized in Eclipse magazine.

    “Tarantula, The Grim Ghost, and Morlock 2001″

    The fist 2 were OK, but I do really like Morlock. The first 2 issues were best, before the SUDDEN CHANGE OF DIRECTION that Atlas was known for.

    ” The Scorpion is probably the best of the bunch. Rich Buckler’s Demon Hunter ”

    Those WERE OK, but I like the Marvel versions better!

    Of course, Chaykin would use that character template AGAIN for Reuben Flagg, and this time OWN it.

    The best Rich Buckler creation will ALWAYS be DEATHLOK.
