Thanks FC.
And while JVJ may have a TON of books he's depending on others to scan them.  If you were able to scan something that means one less book that has to be packaged and sent to someone else saving the turnaround time and expenses for sending, etc.

We appreciate anything you can manage for scans.

The IW reprints were normally shot from the original plates; ads are different and there are sometimes other minor changes.  A scan of the whole original book would definitely be preferable to my scan of the reprint.  But whatever you're willing to do is great.

OK, after unearthing my scanner and wrestling with drivers for my new laptop (well, new since I last scanned anything), I've got a cover-to-cover scan of Phantom Lady #23 (300 DPI .tiff files, zipped into an archive).  I'm one who doesn't consider a scan "done" until it's c2c- missing indicia and statements of ownership make me sad, and there's an SOO on the last page of this issue- not sure that made it into the IW reprint :-)

These are *raw* scans- I flipped the alternate pages so they're all right-side-up, but otherwise did no rotating, cropping, cleaning, etc.  I'm afraid I just have too many coding obligations at the GCD to spend time on that, especially given that I have no experience or particular skill at doing such things.  That said, if any page is too badly scanned *please* contact me and I'll rescan it.

Last time I did this (with Wham Comics #1 and Funny Pages v4#1), narfstar found some folks who could do the post-processing, so I'm hoping that can be done again.  So where should I put this (and future) raw scans?  Should I follow the normal upload procedure or would y'all rather have them go through some alternate channel?  Sorry I can't manage to post-process these as I know it just makes more work for other folks, but it's the best balance I can strike, I think.  We're desperately short on coders at the GCD.

And please do not forget that Wham #2

I've scanned that as well, now :-)
Also, Junior #9 (1st issue) from Fox- 100% early Al Feldstein
c2c scans for both

Hi Fox,
I'll send you a Private Message here to figure out an exchange.
I'll happy do the edits for you if wanted or perhaps Builder-Boy would like to do them?

To the best of my knowledge, all Phantom Lady books are scanned. Which ones are you missing?

If B is asking about the status of the Phantom Lady Archives (super, super delayed), it is back on track and scheduled to be released later this year.  Several things have moved forward and with much help from several scanners we should have a very nice looking (Large!) volume 2.  :)

Stay tuned!

And it's now been up a couple days.
Another massive thanks to everyone who helped with it, especially JVJ, Ken Quattro, Archiver_USA and OtherEric without whom the second volume has no chance of being completed.

Would it not be cool to have both Phantom Lady archives printed as is as two hard cover books?
One with all the Quality material and one with all the Fox material.
I am going to be looking making a set of these for my book shelf.
Any ideas or comments?
B.

I'm happy to know you enjoy them enough to consider it B.  It certainly was a massive job.

Oh I bet it would look amazing though I never designed anything for the spine of any printing
I imagine it wouldn't come cheap with so many pages!
And I hope you add your own colour corrected PL17 pages into it.

I'm planning to do a new edit on PL22 in the near future so you might want to hold off and add those pages as well.  Nothing as complicated as the fix I did on PL19 or what you did on 17 (though 22 is another horrible printing job.)

If you do get them please take a picture of the two, it would be icing on the cake for me.
