On a recent trip to Birmingham city centre, I nipped in to the mighty Nostalgia & Comics. There I found 3 boxes of classic silver & bronze age for sale. After deciding how much I could actually afford to spend, I came away with a variety of great silver age DC..
I love the DC 80 page giants, its a great way to read old stories that would be unaffordable usually and its also really neat to have them contained in one themed issue, this is my fave so far, the fantastic 'Things & Creatures' 80 page Superman
Another classic I picked up was 'Detective Comics 412' with a striking Neil Adams cover, this is an issue I've been looking for for a while now, only to be constantly outbid on E bay whenever one turned up.
There's a little corner damage to the bottom left, but overall, a great looking issue and a pretty good bargain at £4.00.
'Challengers of the Unknown' is another title I wasn't that familar with, being a total Marvel fanatic for years, I missed out on a lot of DC comics, thinking they were never that great, how wrong I was. Doom patrol is excellent, especially this recently aquired issue, not in the greatest of condition, this has never bothered me, as I like to read them and show them to people. This issue features the artwork of the great Jack Kirby who, along with Steve Ditko & Neal Adams, is one of the giants of the comic book industry.
