Golden Age Goodness - Show us what you got!!

Postby wasteddraftpicks » Sat Jul 05, 2014 5:41 am

This is the only Golden Age book I own - Bought it at an antique mall and it was mixed in with a handful of other silver age keys - It's on its way back from CGC right now, but since it will probably be used in a future contest either here or on the CGC boards I will hold back the grade!

Action Comics 36 is probably my favorite book in my Golden Age collection. When I saw it in a CLink auction, it was a 'must win" as it represented a simpler time of Superman where Superman strictly involved adventure, a touch of sci-fi and black and white storylines. Superman was still drawn in a simplistic way and I really liked the Fred Ray art. My second favorite Superman book is probably Superman 15 which seems to be an homage to the Fleicher cartoons of the time.

I don't think I ever posted this online anywhere. I wanted to share a pic of the very first two Golden Age books I purchased.

The Batman #41 showed up in a CLink auction and for some reason, I was drawn to it. It had the notation that it was the first Batman Sci Fi cover so maybe that was it. However, I think this was the issue that showcased what was to come in the 50's as well as where America's interests lay in the early post war years. Either way, Batman and Robin battling little green men. Nuff Said. (No I don't know why I blurred the serial number out of the image at the time.)

The Superman #15 is still in a mylar and was picked up from Metropolis Comics here in Union Square. I remember making an appointment to see the book and I was nervous as my schedule appointment was during a rainstorm. The last thing you want to do is go into Metropolis soaking wet. They had a container to store umbrellas and I remember having them turn the pages :lol: Superman 15 is a great cover and the fact that it is raw allowed me to actually read the issue once I got home and made sure I was dry. I do apologize for the lack of a scan of the book. I cannot find the file and I do not feel like taking it out and scanning it at this right now.

Just wow... That is the foundation of everything that I enjoy reading and all of the superhero movies I enjoy watching on the big screen these days. Would you ever get it graded?

My only 2 Golden Age books at the moment. Just saw it on ComicLink, really liked the cover. So I grabbed it. Just cool to own a book that came out when my grandfather was 15. He had moved back to the US by this point, (From Germany) so he could of owned one of these.

The Hot Rods one I really liked the Date stamp. And Im a big Car guy so that was a plus too. Also its the 1 and only graded copy!
