Maverick Men Against Spike and Tyke!!

Western, crime and a helping of funny animals make up this little selection, you can't say I don't like a bit of variety!

Maverick #14 - January - March 1961 - Dell
Maverick's first six issues were under the 'Four Color' banner and the
title lasted until issue 19.
This issue was the last of the James Garner / Jack Kelly covers.
James Garner was replaced by Roger Moore until issue 18.
Men Against Crime #4 - April 1951 - Humor Publications (Ace Magazines)
The title was called 'Mr Risk'  for issues 1 and 2, and later became
 'Hand of Fate' from issue 8.
MGM's Spike and Tyke #22 - June - August 1960 - Dell
This started and ended life as a 'Four Color' title with 21 issues under
it's own name in between.

Image comics on eBay.

I've had some Image Comics for a loooong time now but since i'm now only collecting pre-1970's comics I think it's time for them to go! If you have an interest in bidding you'll find the links below the pictures.
   Up for grabs are: 

Bloodstrike 1 & 2 from 1993. Issue one has a special
'blood' splattered cover.
The spines have some small creases.
Brigade 1 to 4 from 1992/3.
There is a little bit of grubbiness on a couple of issues.
Savage Dragon 1 to 3 from 1992
Union 1 to 4 from 1993/4. Issue 1 has a holographic cover.
Issue 4 has a couple of small creases to the spine and a
price sticker on the back cover.
Wildcats 1 & 2 from 1992. Issue 2 has a holographic cover.
Issue 1 has small creases by the spine.
Youngblood 1 from 1992
As usual I will post anywhere in the world. If you're bidding, good luck!

The Many Ghosts of Master Marco Polo!

Okay. okay, 5 out of 10 for the title....!
This next batch from my collection is decidedly heavy on the Charlton front with two out of the three comics from the publisher. Charlton produced many titles, third only to the prolific output of Marvel and DC in the 1960's, but didn't have anywhere near the sales and success of the two main publishers.

Many Ghosts of Doctor Graves #2- July 1967 - Charlton
The title lasted from 1967 until 1982 with a few breaks
 in between, eventually ending with issue  72.
Cover by Rocco 'Rocke' Mastroserio

Marco polo - 1962 - Charlton
Sam Glanzman cover. Anyone else think Marco Polo looks like
a young  Patrick Swayze?

Master Comics #90 - April 1948 - Fawcett.
One of Fawcett's longest running titles at 133 issues.
Contents also included Bulletman, Nyoka the Jungle Girl and
Hopalong Cassidy.
