Have some Green Mask fills for vol. 1 Green Mask #5. Don't have the cover. From looking at the mycomic site of LoneStar Comics, there is an auction for a vol. 1 Green Mask #5 on April 6. It is in fair condition.

I can fill the front page and back page. 1,2,63, and 64.

Ok. Hopefully someone can add these fills for an update to Green Mask vol 1 #5. Only need ifc and ibc now.

Hello hufflepuffle,

The scans for pages 1 and 64 look very crisp, but the scans for pages 2 and 63 look a bit out of focus, and as though they were not scanned flat. Did you take those pictures with a camera? I assume you were trying not to damage the book by scanning the inside pages, but the quality will be much better if you can get a flat scan of it. If you can't, I understand.

It also looks like there are a few rectangular regions that were copied / pasted on pages 2 and 63, to replace missing page corners or page numbers. I am thinking that one of the scanners or editors here could attempt a better repair job, if you have the original images.

Thanks for providing these!

Hello,
Ok. I didn't realize the quality of two of the pages were that bad.  I don't like to press the flatbad door on my books as it's destructive. I guess I need to try one of those cheaper overhead document scanner cams.

I rescanned page 2 and 63 with some careful holding. See if these are better.

Hello HP,

Page 63 looks great, but it looks like page 2 might have moved while the scan was taking place. If you look at the vertical panel borders, you will notice that they aren't straight lines.

It might be possible to correct that deformation in a graphics editor, but it would be tricky. If you can try one more rescan on page 2, I think it would help. I would be willing to do the page reconstruction to replace the missing bits in the corners (although it would take some guesswork, unless I can find a reprint of those story pages.)

Thanks again for doing this!

I think this is the best version I can get of page two. The panels were printed at an angle on this book.

Thanks very much HP, that last scan is a big improvement.

I will see what I can do with these pages now. If anyone knows of any auction images or other sources that would show the missing lower corners of these pages, please let me know. Otherwise, I'll just leave them empty in my edits.

Ok,
Been out of here for a while and had other serious issues going on. Now going to try and post some more goodies for the 10 year anniversary.

Here's Cosmo Cat #1. Think you can take this off of your unscanned list now.

Another one is the missing Babe #6

I used a different front cover image and ifc ad, as my copy has a corner missing. Love the Boody Rogers artwork, and cartoon easter eggs he left in these comics.

Thank you for the books, hufflepuffle!  I approved the Babe #6, but the Cosmo Cat has the pages numbered in such a way that they show up out of order.  They need to be 01, 02, 03...

I can edit the book and post and approve a corrected version, or you can do the edits yourself.  Just let me know.

Some nice books and hole fillers on the site as well.
Bravo!  :)

Ok. I edited the page numbers for Cosmo Cat re-uploaded. The ad is 003 and not out of place. It's the 1st wrap page after the ifc. The rest of the pages should be in complete order as numbered.

Cover, ifc, ad, Roscoe Bear, then the Cosmo Cat stories, etc.
