Awesome! That would be a huge book to cross of my list, Narf!  :D

You can also thank Talia and Nobby as contributers to getting this book. It will be sold for more comic money after scanning. I was also able to get an issue of Hi-Jinx to scan with it.

Believe me, I am grateful to all of you. This was one of those books which I wasn't sure would ever show up. I've been curious to read whether the Crash Kid story functions as an origin tale, or if it jumps in with him already working as a superhero.

And those books look great, Geo. Smashing colors!

Whenever I think of Buster Crabbe though, I always get Buck Rogers and Flash Gordon into my head. He really did have the perfect look for both of those characters.

Nice list KB.
My personal list is any missing issues of Famous Funnies or Heroic with HG Peter doing his none WW work in them.  My thanks to Rangerhouse for all the Heroic issues he recently scanned.

Thanks to contributions by Nobby and Talia, Cannonball was purchased. It is now scanned and edited. I am saving it to unveil at the Easter grand opening of the new and improved GAC. Mark has done a great job and I invite everyone to come over and experience it this weekend. There will also be some newly scanned SA PD Charltons and the issue of Hi-Jinx that I bought with Cannonball.

Thanks to all of you guys.
And I hope the new GAC has nothing but smooth sailing and great success.  Break a leg as they say.

Thanks to everyone involved on that Cannonball Comics 01 for knocking it off the #10 spot. I feel like I'm going to have to update my list weekly as the books are really rolling in these days.  :)

Yoc, I'm with you on those Heroic issues. The stories are fun and the colors are unbelievably vibrant. Harry Peter did some great work on Man O' Metal. Too bad he didn't tackle some of the other superhero characters, although I'm not complaining as Ben Thompson did a really nice job.

Thanks for the heads-up on that CC #6, Narf.

I might look into getting that one to scan and upload (if I have the cash) because I'm not sure when -- or if -- that issue will come along again.

Well, I contacted Terry about that Captain Courageous #6. Looks like it's already been sold.  :'(
