Runs I'd love to see completed include (in no particular order):

St John's Whack Comics (one of the very best MAD comics imitators), their Meet Miss Pepper (Kubert art!), and any more of their Canteen Kate's by Matt Baker, if there were more than 3 issues.

All the missing comics in Quality titles such as Feature and Blackhawk. And I would love to have every fiche comic in the archive replaced with a paper scan. Call me a snob, but I can barely stand to look at a fiche file of a comic. Also, there are plenty of Quality love comics that deserve archiving with slick art by Gil Fox, Bill Ward, and others.

All the missing comics in Prize titles such as Justice Traps the Guilty and Prize Comics Western (Severin and Elder).

The missing Spirit Sunday sections.

All missing Fox titles such as Zoot 10, 12 and 15 (and complete scans of ones that are only partial). Also their Crimes by Women and Junior Comics (top Feldstein headlights).

All missing Harvey comics such as many issues of Speed Comics (many with Powell art, I believe).

All missing Lev Gleason and Hillman titles and issues...

And I could go on and on. We still have our work cut out for us.

I have a missing Fox title coming up next, how about that Poz.  I just received the book today, scanning starts tomorrow.
So be looking out for it.

I will keep my eye out, you bet! I've got a small stack of five or so comics to scan as soon as I can dig myself out from under the pile of other work I have to do. Unfortunately, none of them is especially thrilling, mostly run of the mill fills for so-so titles. I own a fair number of Quality and Fiction House titles (by fair number I mean maybe a dozen or two each), but they're all ones that have already been scanned. The bulk of the rest of my collection are either Atlas or DC or Marvel and/or too late to be public domain.

Hi Poz,
If you spot any scans where the original book was in poor condition or if your own copy is in superior shape please don't hesitate to scan your copy.
There are no rules against having more than one version on the site within reason.

I'm definitely with you on that one. Can't get enough Speed Comics as far as I'm concerned.

Some nice looking books too!

My list is any Centaur superhero books and anything ODD. I want to see who is OBIE from Store Comics. I want to see the other Metropollitan  and Tops comics as well as Key Ring the more obscure the better.

I think someone checked on Sgt Preston but has anyone checked to see if Rin Tin Tin were renewed?

That Black Terror 018 was awesome, bcholmes. Thank you SO much.  :)

I feel like I keep having to revise my top ten because so many of the books keep getting knocked off. I know that Green Giant 01 was a big rarity on a lot of people's lists, and we've seen additions of all kinds of titles from superhero to western and romance. Anyway, I am redoing my ten and hoping some of them show up in 2012.

(1) Weird Comics #20 (Fox Publications)
(2) Banner Comics #4 and #5 (Ace Comics)
(3) Captain Courageous #6 (Ace Comics)
(4) The Eagle #1, and a complete #4 (Fox Publications) starring the Eagle and Buddy
(5) Captain Aero Comics #3 (Holyoke)
(5) Black Terror #1, #3, and #6 (plus issues that need completion) (Nedor)
(6) Dynamic Comics #2, #8 (on the way), #9-12 (Chesler)
(7) America's Best Comics; all missing issues (Nedor)
(8) Daredevil Comics #3-6, 8, 11-12, 14-15 (Lev Gleason)
(9) Prize Comics; remaining issues (JVJ has a ton of them)
(10) Cannonball Comics #1 with the Crash Kid! (Croyden)

Man, it's hard to narrow it down to ten. I also love Speed Comics (Harvey), Clue Comics (Hillman), Catman Comics (Holyoke), Bomber Comics (Gilberton) ... it just goes on and on...  ^-^
