Title: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: Yoc on July 22, 2011, 09:30:30 AM
Hey gang,
Let's all welcome DCM German member Tilliban's First Scan - a wonderfully gory Canadian precode horror comic -
Journey Into Fear 020!

Tillian uploaded it twice, the first a MASSIVE 300dpi version that is almost too big for one file on DCM but wow it looks Nice!
The second version a much smaller 19mb one for those on a bandwidth budget.  ;)

Thanks T and I hope we get to see more!

Title: Tilliban comes onboard
Post by: tilliban on July 22, 2011, 12:10:04 PM
Dear DCM-Gang!
Let me say that I am a big admirer of your fine work.
Being from Germany and living in Cologne the DCM is the MAIN source for us europeans to ever lay an eye upon those comic books.
My hobby are precode horror comic books - and I run my own (german!) website about them:
http://fifties-horror.de/
 >:D
In my opinion every owner of old comic books should donate scans to the DCM.
I'm specializing now in hunting down unscanned issues.
Be prepared to see some more next month - BAFFLING / BEYOND / SPOOK / HAND OF FATE / WEB OF EVIL aaaand JOURNEY INTO FEAR #21.
I know how to tease.

Post by: OtherEric on July 22, 2011, 02:20:37 PM
Thank you for the scans, Tilliban, and looking forward to more.

Not every owner of old books is able or willing to scan them, but for every new one like you who we find that is the collection grows.  So thanks again.

Welcome aboard T, and thank you again for the ones you've given so far.
I am and I'm sure others are looking forward to your next scan.

Yep, T knows how to tease for sure!
That list has me drooling here.  ;)

Welcome T and we certainly agree with your opinions on scanning.
Without those like you - most of our collection here would be lost forever.

Title: The way I tease....
Post by: tilliban on July 24, 2011, 02:41:35 AM
It's not like I would tease you on evil purpose.
But I'll be off to summer holidays to Spain tomorrow.
Furthermore I do not own a scanner!
Shame.
I have to ask a friend of mine to share his office for a few hours. Hope to work some sessions in mid-August.
Then I have to rework the scans with a MICROSOFT OFFICE PICTURE MANAGER (yuck!) software.
No PHOTOSHOP for me, o no.
That's why I can only choose file sizes of 400 K or 4.000 K per page.
I'll settle for the small size - they come out nicely in your (by the way) FANTASTIC "Preview"-Viewer.
How'd'you do that?!
Did you programm the thing or is it some readymade feature everyone could get?

Just gettin' the facts, ma'm...

See you next month!
Title: Re: tilliban uploads
Post by: Yoc on July 24, 2011, 09:13:23 AM
Darn shame you have to rely on that software T.  Oh well...
BTW - you might consider scanning at the larger size and resaving them smaller using free software like the one I recommend - IRFANVIEW.  http://www.irfanview.com/
You can set it up to resave a file at a smaller size under advance settings and it will do batches of scans if you have them all in a single folder.  Just remember to do a backup of all your original jpgs first so you can try different settings and not worry about losing your originals.  Also - it's never a good idea to resave a jpg more than once.  I suggest do some tests, figure out your settings and then apply them to your files so you resize and save each only once.  If you'd like some more pointers you know my email address.
Doing this you could have your larger original scans saved for possible future use and still share a smaller version here in DCM.
Just a suggestion - your current scans are fine for viewing but it sounded like your software was limiting you more than you wanted or needed to have.

Thanks again and have fun on your holidays!

Tilliban - I have a spare (legal) copy of Photoshop Elements that came with one of my scanners. Would you like to have it? I think it's version 6 or 7. Not real modern, but it is still an excellent program and it's free...  I'd be happy to drop it into the mail if you send me a Personal Message with your address. I'll steal a few bucks from the JVJ Postage fund.

or you can just email me at jim@bpib.com
Peace, Jim (|:{>
Title: About that postage fund...
Post by: tilliban on August 10, 2011, 02:12:54 PM
Jim, I am truly moved by your offer.
Why not exhaust that ol' DCM postage fund and send me one of those "scanning machines" you Americans claim to have invented.
(won't sell them to the Russkis, I promise)
Joking, of course. Been reading too much 50s comic books.
Golden Age indeed.
Yeah, I'm back from southern Europe and will try YOCs method first.
So hopefully we'll see another horror upload around the weekend.
I'll keep you posted.
The man who came in from the heat (i.e. Spain!).
Title: Re: tilliban uploads
Post by: JVJ on August 10, 2011, 10:18:16 PM
PS Elements will make your life so much easier, Tilliban,
It's really no great effort or expense to send you the copy. I send stuff all over the world, so it's pretty much a part of my basic skill set. Send me your address by PM and I'll actually be HAPPY that someone is using the software instead of it gathering dust in my office.

Title: Takes to it like a duck to water...
Post by: tilliban on August 18, 2011, 05:20:13 AM
Dear Jim,
fabulous news: your PHOTSHOP ELEMENTS arrived - and I took to 'em like that duck to putrid water from the 1950s.
Used it for my new upload:

BAFFLING MYSTERIES #5

Sad to say, this book contains no real highlights, except maybe for this delightful one-pager called "Baffling Mysteries" (page 24).
In this comical ditty two pranksters disguise themselves in ridiculous fashion with bed-linens to scare a ferryman.
They jump up and scream: "We are Death!"
SAY:::: WHAT???
Instead of falling on his butt laughing, the ferryman carries them off to Hades.
Maybe the right thing to do...

So all the best from Germany (where this story ist supposed to take place).
On Halloween. There is no Halloween in Germany, but who am I to correct fun literature like that?

Title: Re: tilliban uploads
Post by: Yoc on August 18, 2011, 11:30:58 AM
Now up, thanks very much T!
:D
Title: Re: tilliban uploads
Post by: JVJ on August 18, 2011, 06:41:58 PM
You're welcome, tilliban,
PS, even at the Elements level, is a pretty neat program. Glad to help.

Now I'd beg to differ with you about Baffling Mysteries #5. It's got Mike Sekowsky, Ken Rice and even Gene Colan. Granted, not the best work any of these men did, but nothing to sneeze at, either.

Title: Wanna spot some art?
Post by: tilliban on August 19, 2011, 05:13:17 AM
Hot patootie!

You know the artists of ACE magazines?!
Grand Comic Database knows next to nothing.
I've been trying to crack this tough nut - and indexed BAFFLING #5 with a George Appel story.
Am I wrong about that?
Please tell me, which stories from #5 are Rice / Colan / Sekowsky.
I wanna learn to identify ACE artists.

I bow to the wisdom of one the greatest art spotters in comic history.
Yours very truly
T.

Appel is definitely involved. I tend to think of this style and "Guttwirth/Appel" as both seem to be there. Who's doing what? I can't say.
Quote
Please tell me, which stories from #5 are Rice / Colan / Sekowsky.

First story is Sekowsky inked by either (or both) Vince Alascia or Jim McLaughlin.
Second story is Guttwirth/Appel
Third is Ken Rice - a great artist who worked primarily for Ace and is often mistaken for Lou Cameron.
Last story is Gene Colan inked by ?

I don't know who does the two fillers. They are reminiscent of Sol Brodsky a bit.
Quote

Feel free to tone it down a bit. I'm just a guy with a knack. I studied at the feet of Hames Ware and Jerry Bails and learned from lots of other guys. The biggest hurdle to learning how to ID artists used to be getting a chance to see the comics. Now you've got access to tons of them, as well as a Who's Who and the GCD. Start learning. You don't need me nearly as much as you might think.

Title: Tilliban takes a shot...
Post by: tilliban on August 23, 2011, 11:05:52 AM
Dear Jim,
Thank you very mucho for your info concerning BAFFLING #5.
Uploading now

BEYOND #5.

Using your tutorial I would say:
DEMONS OF WALPURGIS MOUNTAIN (last) should be Sekowsky.
ENIGMA OF THE UNSCHEDULED PASSANGER (third) eludes me – any ideas?
THE FRENZY OF SHEILA LORD (second) is one of those rare Gutwirth/Appel concoctions again.
BIG TOP NIGHTMARE (first) looks familiar, (from ACE-story “When Black Wings flap” in BAFFLING#9) can’t put a name on it.
By the way: Ken Rice is very good indeed – and I would never confuse him with Lou Cameron.
; -)

All stories from Beyond#5 are quite nice. My favourite is “Demons” though, located again in a German/Austrian village where people have names like “Eric”, “Hans”, “Fritz”, “Karl” and “Bertha”. Which is allright, by the way. But do they have to have family names like “Zwiebelbart” (Onion beard)? And must that village be named “Grausam” – which means nothing less than “cruel”. Sets the right tone for the whole piece…

Tilliban:

TRUE TALES OF THE SUPERNATURAL #1 - Frank Giusto (?) inked by Vince Alascia.
THE FRENZY OF SHEILA LORD (second) is one of those rare Gutwirth/Appel concoctions again.
TRUE TALES OF THE SUPERNATURAL #2 - Vince Alascia.
ENIGMA OF THE UNSCHEDULED PASSENGER (third) eludes me – any ideas? - Richard Case
DEMONS OF WALPURGIS MOUNTAIN (last) should be Sekowsky.

Dear DCM-Gang!

I wanna delve big-time into the horror comic books from the house of ACE.
Do some research about this company.
Does anyone know if there's any kind of information ever been published?
Articles in ALTER EGOs, PRICE GUIDES, COMIC BOOK MARKETPLACES or other magazines?

From 1989-1993 New England Comics Press published 11 issues of a title called Tales Too Terrible to Tell (and then Terrology for the final two issues).  It mostly reprinted, in black and white, pre-code horror stories but there was also a serialized history of pre-code horror comics by editor George Suarez that ran in every issue.  The first three issues were a general history with lots of facts and figures and then he started tackling the various publishers in more detail with one or two examined each issue.  Unfortunately he never got around to Ace before the title was cancelled.  The whole series was supposed to be eventually collected in book form but as far as I know nothing ever came of it. 
I know that a few years ago Roy Thomas was trying to track George down to see if he would be willing to reprint/finish his pre-code horror history in Alter Ego but again nothing seemed to have come of that.
Even though he never apparently finished the history those TTTTT books are worth tracking down (I believe that they are all still available from New England Comics-- for less than cover price!!) and reading for what information he did put out there.  I occasionally see his work referenced by some of the bloggers who touch on pre-code horror comics.

A couple of interesting Ace facts I can throw your way from George's facts and figures is that Ace was the third most prolific pre-code horror publisher with a total of 97 comics (well behind Atlas-399 and ACG-123 and narrowly beating out Harvey-96 and EC-91). Another fact was that Ace was the sixth publisher to jump on the pre-code horror bandwagon (behind Avon, ACG, Atlas, EC and Fox) with their first title coming out in September 1950 (the majority of publishers started publishing horror titles in 1951 or 1952). 

The only other book that I can think of off the top of my head that might help you is Mike Benton's The Illustrated History of Horror Comics which had some info the various pre-code horror publishers.  It came out about twenty years ago, IIRC.

Best

Joe

I will be there from Sept. 23 through Nov. 7. I can bring my Ace data cards and if you want to schedule a "lesson" I'd be happy to spend a day or two looking through scans and helping you to learn the styles.

But I'll use the information you mentioned.

Dear Jim!
What? You're spending six weeks in Paris?
That's an offer I can't refuse.
Paris is a 4-hour-train-ride from Cologne. Small europe!

Marking a book c2c is purely optional.  I normally don't bother unless I'm upgrading an earlier scan, so people know it's an improvement over an earlier version.

Agreed. However, on the flip side, I feel it IS important to note whether a scan you're uploading is missing any pages (or has partial pages), especially when it's the only version available.

Post by: John C on September 17, 2011, 09:34:37 AM
I'm reminded of an old Infocom contest, where they gave a prize to the best picture of someone with one of their games on the Great Wall of China.  As I recall, they got a pile of entries, and one of the winners was just a boot toe and the corner of a game in front of the Great Wall's...encyclopedia entry.

So yes, I do envision the potential for a "strangest place you've read a comic" contest.

Oh, right.  To fill in the blanks, Infocom was a software company in the late '70s and early '80s that made their name on text adventures like the "Zork" series, which were generally well-written, irreverent, and came packaged with an assortment of "feelies," physical artifacts to help bring you into the game.

Should you young'uns want to know the frustration of having to guess what the programmer wanted you to do without any viable hints available on the screen, rather than installing Windows 8 (sorry, couldn't resist), you can give this a shot:

http://pot.home.xs4all.nl/infocom/zork1.html

(Yes, it's pretty much legal.  Activision licensed the game for redistribution a long while ago as a publicity stunt for an otherwise-forgettable game.)

Title: Defective file and missing issue
Post by: tilliban on September 28, 2011, 10:18:18 AM
My mouth will be dry when I'll be holding these books in my hands...
 :P

Having joined the ranks of the JVJ scanning crew, I'm still looking to complete the ACE horror canon.
We are still missing THE BEYOND #1 - JVJ hasn't got a copy.
And as I just discover...
... the file for BEYOND #23 on DCM is defective, am getting an preview error.
But how could 2163 people have viewed the file?
Maybe they just viewed the error message...

It's the file format that won't show the preview, "CBR", the file will download and be viewable with the viewers on your computer though.
By the way we are "fixing" these files one by one for the online preview viewer. It just takes time to get to each one that doesn't work with "Preview".

Hi T,
Prime user is doing a fantastic job helping us re-upload broken or misnamed files as we speak.
I'll add this Beyond issue to the next list I send him of needed fixes.

And thus begin the JVJ scanning festivities.
The first one out of Jim's collection is now uploaded:

HAND OF FATE #9

I'll follow with at least one issue per week.
At the beginning of 2012 ACE horror comic books will be complete on DCM.

Or, as the great austrian mime Arnold S. put it, "Christmas comes early this year".

 Nice scans on the Ace book. I rather like the Hand of Fate series.

 I look forward to seeing what else will be included in the Early Christmas material.

 Thank you and John.

Have you noticed the new uploader "sundancetrance"?
(he put HAUNTED THRILLS #10 on the site)
He's an email-acquaintance of mine.
Another crazy german!
I urged him to scan his DCM-missing horror comic books.
According to MY files there should be following six more in the next weeks.
(he's got that famous WORLDS OF FEAR #10, rrrrrrrrrrr)
Nice.

Hi everybody,
here is the other crazy german :-)
After using DCM for a couple of years downloading tons of pre-code Horror/Sci-Fi/War books it was time for me to give something back. So stay tuned for some more books this autumn. Thanks to Till(iban) who encouraged me to finally start scanning. I am also indexing for GCD (using my real name Wilhelm Dohmeier). I am crazy for pre-code-Horror since the seventies, when I discovered the first (and for a long time only) german EC-Horror -publication named Der Beste Horror aller Zeiten  (The Best Horror of all Times), the german edition of  EC Horror Library of the 1950's (Nostalgia Press, 1970).  Excuse me for my not so propper english. It's good enough for reading old horror comics but not well enough for higher level conversation.
All the best,
Will aka sundancetrance

Sundancetrance has added another scan today -
Strange Fantasy 006 (no ads).

One of our members mentions this book is missing the 5th page of the story "Death on Ice".
Is there any chance of adding that?

You see?
It's like an avalanche going down.
I recruited "sundancetrance" and now he is trying to get a third crazy german to share his collection.
Hopefully this thread will soon be named "Crazy germans uploads".
Working on it:

Therefore another one today: Tomb of Terror # 13 c2c   enjoy !

Yoc, Your asking is welcome. It's a pity that I didn't checked the scans while I had the book. Same goes for the ads and text story. That was 2 years ago and i had a very slow scanner which means a boring long time scanning one whole book.  This won't happen again, scanning books of my own collection using an new higher quality/speed- scanner. I prefer c2c too. Nearly all of my books are complete, just a very few are coverless or/and have missing centerfolds. I checked the DCM scans which are incomplete and will add some missing pages from books I have in my collection.
The next book is already scanned and will coming up soon. It's an incomplete one, missing both, Cover and CF. Crummy, but all comic-stories are complete. After that much nicer scans will coming up soon :-)

Post by: Yoc on October 15, 2011, 04:00:02 PM
Hi Sun,
If you need covers I strongly recommend joining HERITAGE AUCTIONS and searching their archives section.  Thousands of front and back covers scanned at high resolutions too.

Post by: jfglade on October 15, 2011, 04:59:23 PM
"Tomb of Terror" #13 is a very entertaining book to judge by the first two stories (I'll finish it later tonight). Interesting that it is a science-fiction change of pace issue. I can't help but wonder if it wasn't a test to see how well a collection of Science-fiction/space stories would sell for Harvey. Obviously, Harvey's change of direction to material for younger children as the result of the coming Comics Code would have squelched that idea.
Title: Re: tilliban and sundancetrance uploads
Post by: tilliban on October 17, 2011, 02:44:47 AM
My turn again to post something.
It's...

HAND OF FATE #13

Haven't read it yet, but there seem to be really nice stories from Streeter, K. Rice, Zansky and probably Sekowsky (JVJ has to confirm).
Low grade comic books like this are perfect scanner fodder.
They actually look better when digitalized.
 ;)
Title: Re: tilliban and sundancetrance uploads
Post by: josemas on October 17, 2011, 06:33:33 AM
For what it's worth the final story in the issue ("Fate's Final Scoop") looks like Sekowsky pencils to me.

Thanks, josemas.

I'll be meeting Jim Vadeboncoeur, Jr. (aka JVJ) next week to spot ACE artists.
Will then be indexing all ACE horror comic books on Grand Comics Database.
(work has begun already)
Your input is welcome.
Maybe I'll contact you concerning stories which we cannot decide upon...
Can tell you more via PM if you're interested.

 That "Cycle of Horror" cover story is genuinely ghastly, and exactly the sort of thing that Dr. Werthem was trying to warn my parents about not long before the Comics Code sanitized American comic books. I had only the vaguest of recollections of that particular story, which I still think about as "the one where the rats eat the man." Having a chance to re-read it and see what I remembered and what I didn't was very interesting, perhaps even theraputic. That's the second horror story you've posted from a Harvey comic which I remembered reading when I was quite young, and it is becoming harder to associate that part of the company's history with Little Lotta, Hot Stuff, Little Dot, Richie Rich and so on. Thanks for unearthing those books.

I have those kind of memories from the old 70s gore filled Eerie Publications, Skywald and Stanley magazines Jon.  And I've been collecting scans of them for the same reasons.  Today my memories have less of the gore than what was really there.
Title: Re: tilliban and sundancetrance uploads
Post by: tilliban on October 27, 2011, 09:11:43 AM
Hi everybody!

That story "Cycle Of Horror" is one of my favorites!
Drawn by the master of sleaziness, Al Eadeh himself...
After reading this you wanna wash your hands - wonderful.

I am back from Paris with a fresh upload of

BEYOND #13

Spent joyous and insightful hours there with Jim Vadeboncoeur, JR. looking through a BIG stack of ACE horror comic books.
We updated his art spottings on these.
Will be spending the next week indexing them on Grand Comics Database.
And continue to upload horror books every other day.
So enjoy!

BUT.
We can turn back our clocks and delve into the ACE-age.
To insanity and BEYOND.
(though it's an issue of Baffling I uploaded, a mystery? Yessofcourse)

BAFFLING MYSTERIES #16

There's a signed Cameron story (3) in it, but I think the stories by Rice (1) and Zansky (2) are drawn better and executed much nicer.
But he'll grow, that Cameron guy.
As I observed with Jim in Paris, these three (and throw McLaughlin in the pot) will race each other for quality artwork in future issues.
Or maybe all that champagne and caviar got to our heads...

Hi everybody,
too much party this weekend. So I didn't have the time  to scan an whole issue. Instead of this I fill in some missing pages. Most interisting will be the centerfold for Avon's Witchcraft #3 which includes 2 comic pages. The other ones are a very low grade cover of Dark Mysteries # 14 and one missing ad from Black Magic # 3.  Next week I will back with a whole c2c  book

Seems I'm not that good an observer...
It's a nice and much needed scan, so don't worry.

And I know - and YOU know that there's more in store.
So, good people at the DCM - be ready for some surprises to come!

Sir! Sir!!
Please step away from the ACE horror, sir!
And put your hands where I can see them...
all three of them... thank you.
Let's take a break and feast our eyes on the mad workings of the Iger studio.

STRANGE FANTASY #10

Scanned from my personal copy.
ACE horror will be back next week!

STRANGE FANTASY #10

Scanned from my personal copy.
ACE horror will be back next week!

 Great horror comic, Talliban. The artwork isn't first rate but it doesn't need to be because most of the stories certainly are. I especially liked "Bloody Mary" and the ending of the last story. Very nice cover on the book as well. The book is much better than anything I would have expected from Farell.

 Thanks.

Ok boys and girls, I just finished my last scans for this year. Be prepared for probably my rarest book. It's featuring the most awesome Saunders cover of all time, everybody guesses it ?
Next week i will go for a 2-months trip to southeastasia. So you all have to wait until february for my next book. In the meantime Till have to fight alone on the pre-code-horror-front. I am sure, he will come up with more great stuff. Strange Fantasy # 10 was a very pleased surprise, Till.   
All the best to everybody,
Will

I knew what sundance had up his sleeve there.
Wow!
One of the most sought-after horror books.
Nice finishing touch for your first round, Will!

I'll stay online and entertain you with the rest of ACE horror - and some small surprises as well.
On today's menu:

HAND OF FATE #18

Contains the maybe finest story Ken Rice ever did - the last one ("The Spectral Executioners").
It's not a Cameron, probably influenced by him though.
These ACE artists are getting better by the issue now...
So, stay tuned.

Nothing special, but I uploaded a PRIZE crime book which I had laying around.
So, Blammo!, scannerfodder:

JUSTICE TRAPS THE GUILTY #57

There's Bill Molno in it, as far as I can tell - and Jack Kirby's version of the TRUE story of Wilbur Underhill, better known to you all as "The Tri-State Terror"! Ceased his activities due to his death in 1933.

Asked JVJ to send me a batch of ACE crime books. So there may be more crime underway!
Will return the next days with a new horror book, of course.

Definitely Molno on the second one, Tillman, but it's Mort Meskin (not Kirby) on Tri-State Terror and that's Marvin Stein on the cover and the first story.

FWIW. (|:{>

Will send Ace Crime next week.

Ayayayayayay...
That's why I'm just an amateur.
Mistaking Meskin for Kirby.

Found a hidden signature for Sy Grudko though...
(in “Wanted: Ghost Writer” - Beyond #18) - fourth line on the newspaper in the splash.
Jim, you mentioned his name - and he's really there.
Maybe he did most of the 1952 one-page fillers...

For today let's enjoy this fine issue:

BAFFLING MYSTERIES #22

It's a grey and rainy autumn day here in Germany and I feel like having been drawn by Louis Zansky...
And thanks for bringing on the ACE crrrrime.

It is always a RELIEF, Tillman, when someone discovers a sneak that confirms an ID that I have made. Does anyone realize just quite how weird it is to look at these old comic stories and think that I know who drew them? It's tres bizarre - very nerve-wracking as I'm verbalizing a combination of gut-feel, past experience, name memory and artistic/stylistic knowledge. And I know that those abilities seem rare in comics fandom. Why is that? And how long will I be able to do it before the memory goes. It's already (as Tillman will attest) getting harder and harder to dredge up the names that go with the styles - and there's no "reference" books that will take you from a style to a name. Sigh...

Maybe I should quit while I'm still able to see Sy Grudko and remember his name.

Crime books in the mail tomorrow.

Peace, Jim (|:{>

(relax, it's just two issues...)

PENALTY #47
PENALTY #48


Courtesy of il JVJ collezione.
The last two crime comic books ACE ever published.
They're code approved reprints from Super-Mystery Comics, but still fun, because they show how censorship worked.
In many panels there are weapons missing, sound effects missing, cleavage is missing...
Interesting.

And this one's mainly for closure.

WEB OF MYSTERY #29

Last issue, and missing issue on DCM, please mark it as COMPLETE SERIES!
But again in the last story there's approval fumbling at work.
Missing blood, missing knife.

My favorite - by the way - is the reworking of Bob Powell's pre-code horror classic "Colorama".
In the code version the optometrist isn't killed, and the onsetting blindness is explained to be only temporarily!
So we have a murder in the heat of the moment and punishing blindness (pre-code) vs. a just dissatisfying visit at the optometrist's (post-code).
Bummer!
Title: Re: tilliban and sundancetrance uploads
Post by: narfstar on December 24, 2011, 08:51:07 AM
Doorway to Yesterday changes from Beyond 7 to Web of Mystery 29 gotta love the code.
Some differences in reprint are made. Page 2 panel 3 is changed from word balloons to top captioning. CODE CHANGES: Page 5 panel 5 kill to strike. Page 6 panel 1 is dead to is lost, panel 2 dead to done, panel 5 death to doom. Page 7 panel 2 death's head ring is changed to strange ancient ring, panel 3 red outfit is blue, panel 4 it crashes becomes "the plane has to make a forced landing, panel 5 is redrawn from showing the man's dead body and the pilot stating "only one man killed..in such a strange way..his neck was broken as he was hurled forward..his safety belt was defective!"  to the man holding his head the pilot says "only one man injured...only stunned..no bones broken...A most unusual kind of accident..his safety belt was defective!" Death's head is changed to ancient symbol. Last panel adds "Was this just a routine accident that frightened the stewardess to flight and Hank's episode a figment of his mind... or could there be another significance."

I need help. Can anyone identify where the other stories in Web 29 come from?

Post by: tilliban on December 24, 2011, 01:24:14 PM
@narfstar.

My findings concerning WEB 29 reprints so far:

“Deep Into Darkness” – should be a reprint from FOUR FAVORITES # 25 or 27.
Don't know which, both are not up on DCM.

“The Doorway To Yesterday” – reprint from BEYOND #7 (November 1951), as we know already.

 “Conscience In The Witness Chair” (Paul Parker, UNsigned) – reprinted from FOUR FAVORITES  #29 (June 1947) as “The Unknown” (Paul Parker, signed) – reworked and censored (knife murder and blood removed).

HAND OF FATE #24

Contains one of ACEs finest stories: "The Man Who Would Be Fate".
By VIP artist Lou Cameron.
I set a high value on story WRITING as well as drawing.
And this story is most impressive.

January will see the last of the available ACE horror comic books up on DCM.
Will intersperse with the occasional crime book or other horror, some cheesy books no one expects as well...

Yehehes, Jim sent me a box full of dozens of crime books (threw in some western and war) - all ACE - so it's gonna be a big crime fest the next weeks. Starting with the last pre-code issue

CRIME MUST PAY THE PENALTY #44

This is an all-reprint issue from I-don't-know-where.
Looks like a case for... narfstar!
Maybe.

I'm going to upload them chronologically backwards.
Cause my ACE horror work is almost done. Then I'll be in the year 1955.
So I take on crime from there and go back to the year 1948.
From there on I will be studying some other books taking me forward into the year 1955 again.
So I'm pretty much stuck in a pre-code-loop.

Double uploader today:

BEYOND #26

Has all of ACEs great ones: Rice – Zansky – Cameron – McLaughlin.
On the crime side of things we have

CRIME MUST PAY THE PENALTY #43


And there’s Louis Zansky twice – whew!
That again is an all reprint matter, so we see a young Louis Zansky here – double whew!!

@Jim – I have an amateur question here.
Your index card says “FBG” – whose name is signified by these initials?

FOUR FAVORITES #1

Brought to you by Jim Vadeboncoeur, Jr. - the man with all the books.
This is the oldest comic book I ever held in my hands.
September 1941, old as my mother!

Fun art all through - and an interesting crotch shot on page 32.

CRIME MUST PAY THE PENALTY #42

It's a great issue from December 1954 with all the ACE greats on board: Ken Rice, Louis Zansky, Jim McLaughlin PLUS one by Al Camy.
Two reprints, two original stories.
Muuuuch more crime going down (or up?) here in the next weeks.
This is more a threat than a promise...

Welcome to a ACE crime/horror double feature.
First up is another great issue:

CRIME MUST PAY THE PENALTY #39

The Cameron lead story is nice, but even more beautiful and gripping are the follow-ups by Zansky and McLaughlin.
Second book for today is

BAFFLING MYSTERIES #25

Last missing issue! Mark it complete-o, Mr. Admin-Man.
It’s a strange book, cause code-approved. All reprints from earlier ACE horror books.

First story (a boxer’s tale) seems uncompromised, in the second the title has been rendered harmlessly from “Mark Of The Sinister Cat” to just “Mark Of The Cat”. On page 2 a knife thrown at a cat is drawn smaller and more out of range. On page 4 facial transformations are not shown anymore. Same goes for page 6, where it’s just six hairs standing on end of the woman’s head which are left out!
Grand finale on page 7: “She must die!” is changed to “She must pay!” and another reference to death is cancelled. The man stabbing the woman is gone. And the last panel has new text: “I don’t understand” replaces the former phrase: “That she-devil is destroyed at last”.

The next story is heavily retouched, please see for yourself: “Flee The Other Self” (Ken Rice) used to be: “It Is Written: I Die Tomorrow!”. In many balloons the Leroy original text has been doctored in handlettered changes. The best part: The Fate character (it’s a story from HAND OF FATE) has been redrawn in many pictures (probably by Louis Zansky) to look like the doppelganger of the protagonist!
The end is just fantastic: Paul falling down a man-hole, killing himself and drifting face-down away through the sewers? Not anymore! He is pulled out of the water and gets to live!

Mopping up with a harmless Colan-story where just the last panel morale has been shifted away from terms like "bizarre" and "insane".

Great work by all the scanners!

Thanks T I will try to come up with another comparison file but right now I am working on a milehigh bonanza. I have many of the books scanned thanks to my document feeder  :D The Squeeks series will soon be complete. Not a big one but another one. Lots of other fun stuff. I recommend Two-Bit the Wacky Woodpecker

Uploaded today is the next crime book.

CRIME MUST PAY THE PENALTY #38

This is a "normal" scan now, compared to the existing "mini-sized" one.
I don't know squat about this book, all the info is on Jim's card at the end of the scan.
Seems to be an almost complete reprint of CMPTP #3.

R.I.P. Stanley Morse

Soon as I learned from the "Obituaries" section that notorious horror publisher Stanley Morse passed away, I delved into my digital files and brought this up.

WEIRD MYSTERIES #8

It's half apart and incomplete, but the three best stor... (let me rephrase that concerning it's a Morse mag)
... the three most interesting stories are there.
The four-page-quickie "Premonition!" is actually pretty good!
I'm strangely proud to add the infamous psycho killer tale "I Killed Mary" to our database.

(in comparison to the 1970 Dick-Ayers-version "I Chopped Her Head Off!" this is kindergarten)

And - blammo! - on with the ACE crime books.

CRIME MUST PAY THE PENALTY #37

is up. This is the second issue in a row (after the uploaded #38) consisting exclusively out of late 40s reprints!
Strikes me as odd. Presenting old material in mid 1954.
Again they are most dynamic reprints (Rudy Palais, Syd Greene and a real funky Warren Kremer story).
But they didn't dare pulling this off with their horror books.
Hm hm hm.

With

HAND OF FATE #25a

another ACE series is COMPLETE!
Yay.
There's a numbering glitch in the ...dings... general map, though.
It says "issues published:18" but there are 19 to download and none of them a double.
Please correct to "issues published: 19" - it's that damn double number 25.

OK T, I've changed  the information on the double #25 issues. Your's is #25A (Nov) and the other #25B (Dec) by the way. And the count is 18 total issues I believe.

I love to count my beans!
Gonna mix some western and war into our ACE crime spree.
So here is (first of two)

HEROES OF THE WILD FRONTIER #27

Which is actually the next issue of Baffling Mysteries (who died with #26).
Lead story really is Cameron, I couldn't believe it at first sight.
Very toned down, strangely inked, rather boring, ahem...
But a nice Zansky following and a most unique and puzzling collaboration of McLaughlin + Ken Rice.

And, wow!, what an issue. A reall killer-diller!
(expression I picked up from comic books)
All of Ace's BIG 4 of the fities are in it:
McLaughlin, Cameron, K. Rice and Zansky.

Plus special bonus on page 38 of scan:
Handwritten commentaries by Cameron himself - from his correspondence with maitre Vadeboncoeur.

@GEO: Didn't mean to confuse you.
PENALTY is an expression from soccer.
Soccer is the European form of football.

CRIME MUST PAY THE PENALTY #33

With an all new mix of artists. See JVJ's index card on last page.

Let's diversify, people!
Here's one of those rare ACE war comic books:

WAR HEROES #3

No index card for this one.
I say it's a clear-cut Molno on first, McLaughlin on second, "Ace" Baker on third - but:
QUIZTIME for the last spot: Who is this?
This guy did four or five ACE horror stories - Jim and I speculate this could be our "phantom" artist Mario Rizzi, but no one ever saw an art sample of Mr. Rizzi.
Is there a signature on the post-box-like device in the splash?
Does it say "Susan"? Does this make any sense?
Jim, please have another look.

Crime Time:

CRIME MUST PAY THE PENALTY #32

Interesting line-up with Jim McLaughlin, Sy Grudko, Howard Larsen and Dick Beck.
Who could possibly resist a crime comic book with story titles such as:

"Beautiful Babe + Crime King = Murder!"
"The Big Shakedown"
"Murder's Double Poison - Big Joa and Little Joe"
or best of all:
"The Punk With The Itchy Fingers"

More next week from your punk with the itchy scanner.

Post by: tilliban on January 23, 2012, 07:05:33 AM
Giddyup, ya cowpokes!
There’s been a lot of western uploaded recently, but I too can’t help it.
It’s a scanning stampede with TWO issues of Ace’s western romance:

WESTERN LOVE TRAILS # 8
WESTERN LOVE TRAILS # 9


Missing issue #7 will follow in the next weeks.
WLT8 has an index card, WLT9 does not.
So it’s western quiztime and here are my guesses:
Looking at the #8 line-up (Ed Moline, Brewster & Walsh, King Ward and Louis Zansky) I speculate for #9 this line-up: Louis Zansky, Ed Moline, King Ward and Brewster & Walsh.
Just hafta shuffle those artists around…
That’s the main trick with art spotting.
 ;)
Jim even does it without using his hands!

Pretty damn good, Tillmann,
Zansky has a puzzling inker here and I don't know who it might be. And the last is penciled by Charles Nicholas, not Brewster - I'm pretty sure. He's VERY evident on pages 4 & 5. Also, I tend to disagree, upon reflection 25 years later, with the Moline ID on WLT #8. This is much better than Moline and not nearly as "influenced" by Raymond by way of Moldoff. Today I would credit Kisses At Wildcat Ranch to Frank R. Sieminsky (best guess) and an inker (?). [I only do this to confuse us all.]

Keep on keeping on. (|:{>

Time for a crime surprise.
Not another ish of PENALTY, but

TRAPPED #2

As Jim speculates on his index card, it's an all-reprint issue.
The fun with ACE comics is, you know when it's a reprint.
Because they switched completely to Leroy lettering in the summer of 1952.
Any book after that date with handlettering has got to be a reprint.
Though I don't know from where... We may know when all the PENALTIES will be indexed.

And I concur with Jim, it IS Marty Rose - and the missing one should be Sy Grudko.
No idea about the cover, though!
Very strange and clumsy - look at the gangster's feet.
Small wonder the police is catching up with him.

And now for something completely differnt:

HEROES OF THE WILD FRONTIER #2

Solid and classic western lore and artwork throughout.

On the third story there is that strange "swipe artist" again we encountered in ACE horror, Jim.
You give three suspects: Gates, Ravielli, Bean. From what I've seen and checked on GDC and DCM, I'd go for Louis Ravielli.
But I just know too little.

Post by: jfglade on February 12, 2012, 02:53:27 PM
 I loved Web of Evil #10. One of the reasons I pay close attention to the horror comics is because my olden brother was a fan of the genre and it was from his comic books (and the few I could beg my parents to buy for me) that I learned how to read. Some of the horror comics scared me a bit when I was four and five but it was a delightful sort of fright, and many of the stories stuck with me while the Disney and Dell books didn't (except Uncle Scrooge) and some other genres like war and teen humor. I remember some of the story and I'm always on the lookout for ones which I recognize to compare the memory with the real thing. Web of Evil #10 was obviously an issue I read because I remember "The Brain that Wouldn't Die." I saw it the same year that I started elementary school, and I undoubtedly had trouble with the text because what I remembered didn't quite make sense (or rather I didn't fully understand the ending but had a pretty good grasp on the rest of the story) and now I see that my then developing reading skills weren't good enough for me to understand the text of the last three panels. That's one less mystery now.

 Thank you for posting the issue. It's a pity Quality only published one horror title because this issue and other issues of Web of Evil I've read were a cut above much of the competition. Up until five minutes ago, I thought the "brain story" which haunted me was from an EC book.

I can't say that I see the Molno in the last story of War Heroes. Unless his style changed after going to Charlton. I often recognize Molno and it is mainly his noses. I see a face and think that is a Molno nose and I am usually right. The men in War Heroes 4 do not have typical Molno noses. Now JVJ may shoot me down and that is OK I am often wrong. Sometimes I can positively identify but not always and sometimes I can say no way but I try.

You should make it so that your old avatar shows through in the white space, Tillmann! That might be very cool. Put the old avatar on a layer below the new one in Photoshop and change the blending mode of the ACE layer to "multiply".

Let me know if it looks good (like I imagine it might).

This is a nice suggestion, but don't be offended if I decline.
I'd somehow have the feeling to be behind bars.
Or the ACE logo being a kind of keyhole where people are peeping through.

And everything must go!
So here another issue:

WAR HEROES #5

There's no Jimcard going with it, so here are my guesses:
Cover by Jim McLaughlin, first story mystery artist Rizzi/Pious, second story nice and pure McLaughlin, third story is strange (I see Charles Nicholas in it, but who else???), last story nice example for a pure Grudko at the height of his abilities, alas.
Title: Re: tilliban and sundancetrance uploads
Post by: JVJ on February 24, 2012, 11:59:08 AM
You're correct right down the line, Tillmann,
Definitely Nicholas pencils on third. Sy Grudko on fourth. The first remains a mystery.

Peace, Jim (|:{>

see you soon?

Today we present more crime, of course.

CRIME MUST PAY THE PENALTY #20

I am baffled how GOOD Chic Stone looks in the lead story (in June 1951).
He's even slightly better than in his horror work from 1952 on.
There's a nagging suspicion in my head that he might be inking Mike Sekowsky here.
But that's probably just an attack of art spotting paranoia...

Post by: John C on February 26, 2012, 07:06:12 AM
I'm usually the last one to look at the art, let along discuss it, and I certainly don't have the practice a lot of you do, but the figures in the panels don't seem to have enough "mass" to be Sekowsky.  I don't see any strain in the arms where people are leaning on things, the clothes look like they're floating rather than hanging, and even the panel with the guy being pushed, it's too static.

On the other hand, some of the faces do look sort of like his.

He sent me this picture:

The gent in the back is LOU CAMERON, alive and well.
In the words of my "source":
"Lou Cameron is 91 years old, lives in New York, and is very lucid and, I hear, opinionated."

That's just fantastic.

Hi everybody,

I am finally back with a real horror book:

                                                    MISTER MYSTERY # 14

The honor for this rare gem goes to my friend and DCM - member Whitewolf61 who leaves 3 nuggets of his collection to me for scanning. The other two books I will post within the next 2 weeks. Have fun.

Can't wait to see it. Fantastic entry, Will.
From me and Jim there's another

CRIME MUST PAY THE PENALTY #17

(I'm holding back a nice horror book as well for DCM's second birthday...)
Ach, there's no Jimcard for CMPTP#17 - so here are my guesses:
Cover by Zansky, then weird first story (Zansky inking Grandenetti?), the second is an Alascia inkwork (probably on Sekowsky).
Getting even weirder with the third one (another Sekowsky - or is it Walton now?).
For sure is only a last entry by Louis Zansky.

Wonderful.

 I just got around to reading that book a few hours ago (I'm far behind on the "new" material). "Green Horror" was less than horrific but I'm not sure it was meant to be humorous; I can see where it would evoke laughter or at least a chuckle or a snicker. "Fear in the Jungle," also in that issue, read more like something from one of the "Mad" imitations. It made great sport of the jungle genre and was intentionally humorous. I enjoyed both stories, and I thought it was a decent issue.

 I think there is quite a bit of tongue in cheek humor in many horror comics. I just usually don't see the humor displayed so obviously as iit is in that parody of lords of the jungle. I also find a lot a deliberate humor in grade B American horror movie, although many of the more recent ones are taking themselves too seriously.  I think horror should be great fun, not an exercise in repulsion and disgust and horror comics usually didn't cross the boundry into humorlessness. Keep them coming.

 Take care,

That's right, Jon!
Horror needs a bit of irony, else it's just splatter.
The EC comic book hosts did it the cleverest way.
Their imitation were a lot more cynical (compare any MISTER MYSTERY book) and forgot about the tongue-in-cheek.

This long run of CMPTP ends with #2, but there is a #1 which is called #33 (because it took the numbering over from FOUR FAVORITES).

Knock on wood.

 I certainly wasn't expecting a romance comic, but I guess it is a change of pace or has monsters in love. I'll check it out on the off chance that it might actually contain something I don't associate with the romance genre.

And up now is our sunday horror surprise:

OUT OF THE SHADOWS #6

Courtesy of our gentleman Jim.
I'll just keep them coming.
Arranging a wild upload of horror / romance / crime / western and satire.
Be afraid, be afraid...

Rrrromance comes knocking with

DEAR LONELY HEARTS #2.

Knock on wood.

 I certainly wasn't expecting a romance comic, but I guess it is a change of pace or has monsters in love. I'll check it out on the off chance that it might actually contain something I don't associate with the romance genre.

 I thought I was kidding, but "Price of Passion" may as well be a horror story because it has a violent climax and ends with two people trapped in hell. Not what I expected from the romance genre.

You exaggerte, friend!
(that should have been "exaggerate" of course)
That's not hell, that is the way of those "wayward girls" down south...

For today I donned my scanning mask and present the Scanned Ranger, halt:

MASKED RANGER #4

Which is of course a clone of the Lone Ranger (who in reality is me, scanning in darkness surrounded by the animals of the night).

Title: Re: tilliban and sundancetrance uploads
Post by: tilliban on May 15, 2012, 11:56:18 AM
And while I have time on my hands, it's more Premier romance:

TRUE LOVE CONFESSIONS #4

I always marvel how MUCH and MANY of these were around.
Was the biggest market of the 1950s if I'm not mistaken.
Title: Re: tilliban and sundancetrance uploads
Post by: Geo (RIP) on May 15, 2012, 01:25:53 PM
I think "Horror" might have beat it out, but not by much, it would be number 2.

And thanks T for the upload.

Post by: tilliban on May 16, 2012, 11:53:29 AM

Look what I found rummaging thru my crime files:

MR. RISK #2

Which makes this Ace mini-mini-serie COMPLETE.
There were only two books named Mr. Risk. They are online now.

And with that whiff of horror

ADVENTURES INTO DARKNESS #7

I am signing out for the weekend.
Going to Switzerland again for some mountain biking, paragliding and bungee jumping.
Nah, just typing this to alarm YOC...
 ;)

Am taking a train ride, nothing else.
So we'll all be safe till next week for a lecture in romance.

And - kapweeeng! - fast like a speeding bullet (not faster than, of course not) freshly returned from Switzerland ...
... it's another criminal upload:

CRIME MUST PAY THE PENALTY #6

From 1949 (and looks all like 40s artwork inside).

(still flashed from my weekend stay in central Switzerland, this is as close as you can get to paradise in Europe, the air is obscenely clean and fresh and spicy, you wanna import it in bottled form // I imagine this is what Canada must feel like)

It depends where you are in Canada T.
In the city we get the usual smog, etc.  Up north, very nice stuff and some amazing views as well.

Title: Re: tilliban and sundancetrance uploads
Post by: tilliban on May 24, 2012, 10:01:15 AM
Thanks for the confirmation, YOC.

I decided it's time for a romantic upload (this sounds awkward, doesn't it?):

MY SECRET MARRIAGE #4

Brought to you from the people who gave printing a bad name: Superior!
A book of my own, modeled on my private secret marriage, of course.
Title: Re: tilliban and sundancetrance uploads
Post by: Yoc on May 24, 2012, 03:22:54 PM
Thanks T!
Superior was Canadian, but please don't hold that against us.   :-\

Post by: tilliban on May 26, 2012, 08:26:51 AM
The thought indeed crossed my mind, dear YOC...

Let us take another step into the completion of Ace's master crime title with the upload of

CRIME MUST PAY THE PENALTY #4

Big 52-pages issue with nice artwork by Palais, Greene, Battefield.

 Thanks to you and Jim, I can cross one more story off my list of childhood horror stories that I've been trying to identify and re-read. "The Drums of Cajou" is the vampire story that has haunted me since I first saw it when I was five and had my much older brother read it to me because I couldn't quite read well enough then to handle it by myself. The cover of "Out of the Shadows" #8 with the severed heads hanging on wall and a fiend dipping a fresh on in who-knows-what is also startlingly familiar. For year I thought the story with the female bat-like vampire was probably from a Harvey book or one of the smaller short-lived publishers, and it never crossed my mind that Ace might have published it.

@YOC: And I didn't even tell you about my visit to the local amusement park.
Got some astronaut training there!

@jfglade: Glad to be of assistance.
I can promise you some more precode horror over the rest of spring and summer.
Working on it - fervently.

Nicely put, Yoc.
I should change my profile name to "Danger Man".
But my eyes got too bad for real danger - too much scanning!

CRIME MUST PAY THE PENALTY #2

is up - and it's a wrap!
With chicken and salad.
No, it's another mega-series COMPLETED!
(the complex matter of CMPTP can be studied on this site of the Grand Comics Database)
http://www.comics.org/series/name/crime%20must%20pay/sort/alpha/

That dubious #33 [= #1] (and a singular series) is missing, Jim didn't include it.
I am accidentally just bidding on that book, will know more tomorrow.

Jim, I'll ask for missing ACE titles next time we see each other.
We are not done with them books yet!
So for today it's cowboys'n'injuns time with Premier's

Enjoy-hee-haw.

And with the upload of

MEN AGAINST CRIME #3

it is a wrap - concerning books from Ace.
This was the last I still had in store. Will get some more though in autumn from our Californian Courier.

For the next weeks it will be books from Standard, Comic Media and Premier.
Presenting the missing issues of a whole new other crime series.
So be prepared.

The next Standard horror helping is online:

THE UNSEEN #8

No Toth in this issue, but great Sekowsky galore.
Title: Re: tilliban and sundancetrance uploads
Post by: tilliban on June 09, 2012, 08:06:38 AM
And this is our new crime series we'll be following the next weeks:

POLICE AGAINST CRIME #2

From the underrated and rather unknown Premier Magazines.
It's a thrilling book with "okay" artwork.
I find these more intriguing than the products of the Lev Gleason company.
CRIME DOES NOT PAY is brutally overrated.
Their artwork is bland or outright shabby (straight from the 40s), the writing is wooden and rigid.
 :-X
No offense, GoldenAgers, but I am a 50s man...
Title: Re: tilliban and sundancetrance uploads
Post by: Yoc on June 09, 2012, 11:25:32 AM
Being the first on the block helped CDNP a lot.  I agree they can be wooden.
Title: Re: tilliban and sundancetrance uploads
Post by: tilliban on June 11, 2012, 08:51:33 AM
And heeeeerrrreee's number one of:

TRUE LOVE CONFESSIONS #1

Numbers 2, 3 and 4 are already up, and I have some more to come.
Jeez.
Are these confessions of true love or true confessions of love?
And is there a difference? Find out for yourself.

Post by: tilliban on June 15, 2012, 02:53:47 AM
We continue our crime series with

POLICE AGAINST CRIME #3

And I still get a chuckle out of the fact that they printed the "against" so small that on first glance the title reads like
"Police Crime"!

That's why it's called the "golden age"...?

Today it's

TRUE LOVE CONFESSIONS #5

and still some issues to go.
As they say: Love conquers death.
One could probably spend eternity scanning romance books.
My own private hell. Just mumbling here. Do not pay attention to the man behind the scanner.
Title: Re: tilliban and sundancetrance uploads
Post by: Yoc on June 18, 2012, 03:31:38 PM
Thanks T, we really do appreciate it.  I might suggest perhaps alternating titles to avoid such a hell all at once.
Variety being the spice of life or something like that.
Title: Re: tilliban and sundancetrance uploads
Post by: tilliban on June 20, 2012, 12:43:11 PM
I do, I am.
I'm not THAT crazy to scan two or three romance books in a row!
I even upload them in a pell-mell fashion to avoid mental disorder.
So it is

POLICE AGAINST CRIME #4

for today. See? See???
Heeehhaaaheee...

Comic Media published quite interesting romance books.
This

ALL TRUE ROMANCE #14

is a blend of romance and crime, for example.
Event the artwork is appealing, because it does not follow the usual patterns.

But I got just one more to follow this. Soon.

ALL TRUE ROMANCE #16

We have no more of this series by Comic Media.
Or do we, Jim?

Interesting book, by the way. They blend their romance with girls involved in crime - and a story (I daresay) about a bathing suit babe in bondage.

Let's wrap up this nutty operation!
Here is

NUTS! #5

Last issue, struggling like mad to be like MAD, harhar.
There's advertising spoofs and even a dear "Captain Marvel/Marble" parody.
Enjoy.

I just got my early Heroic Comics back from Blake Bell and will bring those not scanned yet with the other comics that T asked for. They will certainly give you some "diversity" in your next batch, Tillmann. Some Blue Bolts, too. Lots of Bill Everett that ended up in Blake's second Everett volume.

Peace, Jim (|:{>

Hey, tilliban?

After you get the Police Against Crime Comic series done, do you think you can do the Crimes by Women series next?
Title: Re: tilliban and sundancetrance uploads
Post by: Yoc on August 17, 2012, 06:25:42 PM
That's great news Jim!
I'll update the list when Tilliban confirms he's gotten them.
Title: Re: tilliban and sundancetrance uploads
Post by: JVJ on August 17, 2012, 10:23:12 PM
Will hand them off to Tillmann sometime between Sept. 24-28 when we rendezvous in Paris.

What is going on here?
Maybe the heat finally got me.
It's the hottest day in Germany since the Dark Ages (with over 100 Fahrenheit), so I'll upload

DANGER #1

From Comic Media, of course. Which COMPLETES another series!
Fanfare please.

Concerning CRIMES BY WOMEN, not on my radar, sorry.
If I interpret Jim's last reply a certain way, he may be packing them for me.
But I think the batch is bursting already...
Just let it be a surprise for all of us.
Think I'm sweating while typing.

Sadly, dear jfglade,
Comic Media horror books are rare and expensive.
And Jim doesn't have them.
One more from Horrific will be coming up next month, though.
We'll need another "source" to learn more about Comic Media.

Anyway, I swing by today to drop another Premier romance book:

TRUE LOVE CONFESSIONS #9

Two more to go.

Final issues.
So we're out of the code-approved wood.
Back to pre-code horror next time.

Post by: tilliban on September 05, 2012, 04:13:20 AM
Yeah, decided on a double upload, because two lame code-approved issues equal one mediocre pre-code book.
Right?

And today we close the doors on

POLICE AGAINST CRIME #9

Final issue.
As the rule with Premier it features miniature lettering, raggedy printing and strange artwork.
Title: Re: tilliban and sundancetrance uploads
Post by: tilliban on September 08, 2012, 05:06:41 AM
This is a coincidental thing.
Got my hands on a copy of

HAND OF FATE #15

and offer it now as a "different version" scan.
The existing one is quite blurred and shot by digicam.
I want to say that I was thankful for that scan (and I used it for my ACE research), but here is now a cleaner scan.
Title: Re: tilliban and sundancetrance uploads

I'll milk him for some more books, absolutetly.

Today I felt a crime book would be nice. So here's one of my own:

KERRY DRAKE #24

Back on the weekend with another JVJ comic.
Title: Re: tilliban and sundancetrance uploads
Post by: tilliban on September 13, 2012, 07:17:59 AM
Snard, I always scan cover to cover.
It is complete. Checked again.
The 32 pages are odd, but not the first time I come across this "phenomenon".
There are some books out there (which count for 36 pagers), but only did print 32 (leaving out one 4-page sheet).
Title: Re: tilliban and sundancetrance uploads
Post by: tilliban on September 15, 2012, 07:42:21 AM
Hip hip horray...
Uploaded Jim's last Comic Media book:

HORRIFIC #11

Fine art, mediocre writing...
(but why does it say "No cover yet" for two hours?!)
Title: Re: tilliban and sundancetrance uploads
Post by: Yoc on September 15, 2012, 07:47:12 AM
Oh I know!
It's because of Jon's Sunday's Gif file.
Once the feature chokes on something all uploads afterwards are stuck at 'No Cover Yet.'
I'll have to delete his file to fix things.
Sorry Jon.

See you soon. And this post celebrates FIVE DAYS of log ins to DCM (well, including the GAC time, too, I suppose). What a way to spend one's life.

The last issue of our Premier run.
(I always have something up my sleeve.)
Will start scanning your new batch o' books soon.

It's gonna be great, but you'll have to endure 30 romance books from ACE as well.

How do you attach those "screenshots" to your upload scans???

They're always nice, and if it's not too much trouble, I might do it for future uploads.

Hi T,
This is covered in our uploading tutorial here -
http://digitalcomicmuseum.com/forum/index.php/topic,1882.0.html

Read step 7 - adding thumbnails or 'screen shots' as they are called when looking at a book on the site.

DARK MYSTERIES #20

From Story/Master. Not bad. I like the Altman best ("Flames Of Hate").
Sadly the last horror book in my possession.
And the last till Halloween. Then I'll shoot up some new books of Jim's.

But I'll play nice and just tag along. Donating some horror scans.
Probably.
Might as well upload a bunch of ROMANCE books and pretend I confused Halloween with Valentine's.

Glad to contribute a VERY old book today:

SUPER-MYSTERY COMICS vol. 4 #5

from January 1945. Jeez.
Always make me feel dizzy to see a book out of times of war.

Another matter: Feel a bit downcast today.
Spent two hours scanning ANDY COMICS #21 - to find out it's up already.
And in a very fine and complete version by HenryPeters.
Uploading my scan would be totally redundant. And quite useless.
Senseless! Absurd!! Futile!!!

Any thoughts?

No harm done.  But please check for all your books before doing any scanning.  Quite often a second scan is needed but not always.

By the way, I met with "sundancetrance" at the Cologne comics fair.
A very nice and enormously knowledgeable guy from the Hannover area.

Now that you mention it, Jim, feeling a bit queasy just there...
Kidding. It'll pass.

I uploaded a first replacement scan for books not looking good. Now

WORLDS OF FEAR #7

ANDY COMICS #21

I scanned by mistake. It's already up, but Jim gave me this to scan.
Aaaarrrggghhh.

Second I upload an oldtimer issue of

SPY SMASHER #10

Which would be nice (would be fantastic!) if there weren't 8 pages missing in the middle!
Noticed this only when numbering the scanned pages.
Double and triple Aaaarrrghhh.

Let's put this behind us. Now.
Scanner's blues is. Over.
Feeling better and see you next week...

As for Spy Smasher: you all have to realize that my collection is not perfect either. If this book was complete, I could never afford it. It's okay to lament what is missing, but don't forget to enjoy what we have!

Yes, that WAS Sekowsky. Trust yourself.

Now I must end my break and go back to work. I've finally (almost) got the test page separated for the featured work for ImageS #13. Tomorrow I arrange for a press test to see if what I envision can even be done. Wish me luck.

Hey tilliban, if you find another version of a book already on the site - please don't hesitate to continue your own scan.  There is not rule a second version can't exist.

Also, as in the case of the Spy Smasher, please don't hesitate to pull missing pages from fiche or another scan on the site to fill in your pages.  This is exactly why DM and other fiche scans uploaded their versions to the site.

Thanks for all the work guys!  And good luck on your test Jim.

There's George Evans art in all of them no one has probably seen until now.

Feeling glamorous today.
So it's

GLAMOROUS ROMANCES #42

From Ace. A few more will be coming up in the future.

Post by: jfglade on November 18, 2012, 01:36:29 PM
And the odd books just keep rolling in:

LOVE MYSTERY #1

From Fawcett.
Jim informs me that these are actually hard to find.
All three issues will be coming up the next weeks.
There's George Evans art in all of them no one has probably seen until now.

 It is interesting to see a "genre-bender" trying to blend crime and romance, and the contents of this issue are very well done but instead of doubling its market share the series undoubtedly turned off both mystery and romance fans. I enjoyed it and I look forward to the other two issues.

UNDERWORLD CRIME #7

Probably hogwash of the same sort, coming from the same publisher.

Celebrating the upload of my new website: FICTION HOUSE & STANDARD HORROR!

UNDERWORLD CRIME #6

We COMPLETE another series.

Signing off for the weekend, I’m going to Brussels, Belgium.
There’s a trash film festival (the “Offscreen”, believe it or not) and I’ve got tickets for an evening with John Waters!
Jeezerella! These comic books put you in the right mood, don’t they?
Us Europins, we love our slice of sleaze, that’s why Europe is a giant Eurotrash theme park.
Kidding, of course.

Time for another Fawcett horror replacement/enhancement scan.

THIS MAGAZINE IS HAUNTED #9

Existing version is barely okay.
Well, I'm back from Brussels, Belgium, where I witnessed John Waters perform his stand-up routine.
Quite... special, but enjoyable all the less.

What even flashed me more was seeing the movie THE WIZ, a 1978 funk/ soul/ disco version of THE WIZARD OF OZ, starring Diana Ross and Michael Jackson. Director Sidney Lumet very cleverly shifted the original into a new contemporary dimension. The Emerald City being the Big Apple, the Flying Monkeys a biker gang, the poppy field an eros center... and so forth. Knocked my socks off. Masterful.

But I had never heard of that before. Did some of YOU knew about this movie?
Just wondering - and marveling.

Funny thing, I've never seen it (though I spotted it available on Netflix, so I may remedy that soon despite not being so big on disco), but I was a kid when it was released, so I definitely remember the media blitz.  I think that was also the height of Ed Koch's (New York Mayor at the time, who passed away a couple of weeks ago) "How'm I doing?" ad campaign, just to sound topical.
Title: Re: tilliban and sundancetrance uploads

I knew about it. I've seen it about 3 times on TV over the years. I was amused and glad it wasn't trying to be a remake of the 1939 movie.

Diana Ross as Dorthy was a stretch.  She looked and was a decade or more older than the actor they should have used.  Name recognition I guess.

Thanks for your memories of THE WIZ, guys!
I was just so baffled that it even existed. Learned in the meantime that diehard Michael Jackson fans were familiar with it.
They didn't like it, though...

Well, since we're not in Kansas anymore (I hope so at least) here's some eye-candy without music:

WONDER COMICS #20

Jim stuffed it in my pocket, I scanned it and it looks almost sensationel - wild mix of adventure and science fiction.
Title: Re: tilliban and sundancetrance uploads
Post by: Yoc on March 15, 2013, 02:09:52 PM
Thanks T!

Perhaps it was my young age but I enjoyed the The Wiz and I'm not a Jackson fan at all.  The surreal production, especially the subway number, and the songs were the most impressive.  It's worth a watch IMO.

OZ once again. Just saw that new film "Oz the Great and Powerful", which is veeery nice, too!
Sam Raimi's best looking horror film, by the way.
 :D

And comic-wise it's

JOE YANK #11

for today. I auctioned the still missing #9 from Ebay, but it won't arrive.
Starting to worry...
Title: Re: tilliban and sundancetrance uploads

Pssshaaw.
Wrangled JOE YANK #9 out of the customs office - and three other books.
But for now it's

WORLDS OF FEAR #5

from Fawcett. Another different version.
And the last one, sadly. Jim does not have #9.
Title: Re: tilliban and sundancetrance uploads

Time to sneak in one of Jim's romance books:

GLAMOROUS ROMANCES #50

The last of that series - for the time being. Others coming up.

Bruised my rib cage this time. Very slightly.
Hurts only when I laugh. So I don't!

COMPLETE LOVE Vol. 28#2

is my choice of upload for today.
Expect hopefully another one of those before I'm off to see the wizard.
In Paris, next week. Meeting Jim for an exchange of comic books.
Busy bee.

This is what I've been mentioning sometime ealier somewhere:

BEWARE #15 (the 1955 issue)

thus COMPLETING this series.
Guess what I'm doing just now. Sitting here in Paris (France) with JVJ indexing a new bigass batch of books to scan.
Sipping white wine and nibbling baguette et fromage - superbe.
Ah, the life.

And we surely wish you had been with us, Yoc.
It was wining and dining and art spotting at its finest.
In that order.

But I'm back to the scanning machine, lots of new books waiting for the world.
Some crime, horror, war, romance and even that old stuff from the 30s!
Some beauties I got waiting in line.

First, I gotta shovel out some romance, making room. Jeez.

COMPLETE LOVE Vol. 31#1

That's the last I got of these. Other titles in the pipeline.
Work never stops!

His last for Fawcett, he defected over to EC.

So the troops will stay together...

After looking through 50something comic books.
But that's how it is.

And this is
LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT #34

The last book of our short upload run of this series.

Well, here's the first of the Ten Stories:

TEN-STORY LOVE vOL35 03 (#201)

I got five of them in a row. Not realizing that these contain just reprints of earlier Ace romance books.
Ace published after the end of 1954 only reprint issues.
So maybe there is some REAL LOVE inside.

Good to hear from you, Jim.
Meant to contact you for days, but been absurdly busy preparing stuff.
I'll be "playing" a Düsseldorf gallery in early August.
Displaying horror comic books and covers, installing horror topics, showing panel slide shows, giving lectures in comics history.
Rrrrr.

Attack of the Thai lunch! ...

Was that repulsion you were expressing?...  I was thinking they had forgotten to kill whatever it was you were going to eat there and you had to sneak up on it. :P :)

Never had Thai food myself, so I have no idea how they serve it... live, dead, cooked, uncooked... or what they serve for that matter.
Title: Re: tilliban and sundancetrance uploads
Post by: JVJ on May 09, 2013, 10:01:40 PM
That's just Tilliban's wry Germanic sense of humor coming to the fore (in public, even), DL.
The wearing of the napkin over the mouth while eating is just one of those crazy German things that you learn to put up with.

Seriously, though, Tilliban was goofing and I was shooting just before we tucked into a lovely luncheon. There's a nice French influence to Thai cuisine and this particular restaurant has an amazing way with seasoning that sets it apart from typical French. Thai can also lean heavily toward noodle and clay pot dishes. I'm very adventurous in my eating habits, figuring that in most cases millions upon millions of people have managed to survive for centuries quite nicely eating their cuisine so I guess it won't kill me to try it once. Usually I find that I like it.

I don't know how available alternative cuisines are in your area, but usually they are excellent value for the buck and can be surprisingly delicious in very new and different ways.

Peace, Jim (|:{>

Whew... Jim used the term "attack" and for a minute there I was thinking Dracula (or perhaps in this case more Ozzy Osbourne).  I mean, it looked like a nice place there... I should at least think they would have provided you with a knife to do the dirty deed.  :P :)

And I requested a big ol' hairy Americano taking pictures of me.
Bam! There he was. Nice guy, really, by the name of "Jim".
Loaned me a box of comic books as well.
Here's another #1 hit from 1947:

Start digging into Jim's vault of STORY COMICS books.
It'a a start with

FIGHT AGAINST CRIME #2

Which is just a run-of-the-mill crime comic.
This series is intereting, though, because they start packing horror into it.
In the later issues. Got a (very) few more.
All coming up in the next weeks.

Hi T,
Upgrades are existing scans improved with additional pages or better scans but basically the same scan as before.
(dif ver) are a completely new scan of a book that has already been scanned.

I think that covers it.

Thanks for the latest.

Say, I hope SunDanceTrance is doing Ok.  We haven't heard from him in quite a while.
-Yoc
Title: Re: tilliban and sundancetrance uploads
Post by: tilliban on May 30, 2013, 06:01:25 AM
You know, I coaxed SunDanceTrance into scanning some horror books, but he's really not into that kind of thing.

I'm meeting the guy, in fact TOMORROW.
I'll be attending the comics festival in München (Munich to you) over the weekend.

There are some interesting exhibitions (Underground comix, tribute to Crumb, 75 years Superman, Wertham and the Comics Code) - and Denis Kitchen will appear in person. Gonna have a look.

So I'm signing out with my last Ace romance scan:

TEN-STORY LOVE vol 36 #1 (205)

There's lots more at Jim's home in California, but I'm done with these - for now.
Going to start a batch of romance from Story/Master. Soon.

Hi T,
Hey, we'd be happy to hear from Sun anytime he can manage it.
And by no means is anyone limited to one genre or another when sharing.

Have fun at the convention and say Hi to SDT for everyone here on DCM.
:)
Title: Re: tilliban and sundancetrance uploads
Post by: tilliban on June 03, 2013, 07:37:24 AM
Love the hat, Yoc!
Been diligent making contacts in Munich.
I'll be experimenting with digi cam pictures instead of scanning.
Got the go from a German collector to shoot his books.
Will meet the man in August and photograph a few missing pre-code horror books.
Maybe we can use that digi cam operation to get more from SundanceTrance.

Saw Denis Kitchen live. Sat in a room (a dark and small beer den) with him and only a dozen other people.
Denis told fabulous stories about his encounters with Eisner and Kurtzman.
The turnout was so meager because the whole of Bavaria is currently drowning in historic rainfalls.
Probably a late deluge for publishing underground comix.
I got soaking wet myself running around and looking for the event.

Anyway, I'm back home and dry - to present you with a personal copy scan of

TOMB OF TERROR #5

Beloved Harvey title, sporting two classics: "Rat Man" from Powell and "Head of the Medusa" from Palais.

Title: Re: tilliban and sundancetrance uploads
Post by: Yoc on June 03, 2013, 12:17:44 PM
For sure digital photos are an option but whenever possible I'd encourage a traditional scan.
CadetEd is using his own user made digital cameral apparatus and gotten some good results.
Lighting and background seem to be very important to the final product.

Good luck and glad you got to enjoy the convention despite the rain that seems to be unending in Europe these days.

For sure digital photos are an option but whenever possible I'd encourage a traditional scan.

Keep in mind that, only a few years ago, Rangerhouse's scanner would have been considered a camera.  They do a great job, assuming it can be held steady and the lighting is good.

Post by: Yoc on June 03, 2013, 06:48:57 PM
True enough John but also keep in mind that Rangerhouse's scanner cost him several thousand dollars and was designed to photograph paper sources.  Your typical digital camera was not.  It is possible to do so but there is a lot involved.  Just ask CadetEd.  :)

Yehehes, digi cam shots are tricky!
I know.
But I've been experimenting with a low-priced family camera, a tripod, a hammer, a box of nails and two wet sponges.
Great results.

I'm surprised you're able to successfully download Tilliban's uploads on your iPad using the ComicBook Lover app. Whenever I try, the file downloads as a zip and there's nowhere on the iPad to open the file.

I'll use your link to hopefully backup all the comics I've already downloaded. Thanks.

Well, allright, here's the deal.
I visited German collector whitewolf61 (a friend of sundancetrance's) and managed to photograph 20 DCM missing horror books.
So you'll be seeing my special DigiCam edits for a while.
Starting with

CHAMBER OF CHILLS #24

See below a picture of the famed "Vault of whitewolf61".
Stored away in an unknown location.
400 original pre-code horror books.
The German Holy Grail of FIFTIES HORROR.

A plea to the admin: Could you change the name of this thread from
"tilliban and sundancetrance uploads" to something like "tilliban and the German collectors uploads"?
You're very welcome to find a catchy name.

We're neglecting good ol' romance.
Therefore I give you:

LOVELORN #11

Ahhh.

No worries on romance - lots of it to come in the Fox Spotlight but thanks all the same!

Post by: tilliban on September 29, 2013, 09:15:33 AM
Jeez. My photo edits are not that popular as it seems...
But any scan is better than no scan.
I'll keep them coming, though, for all the historians out there.

THIS MAGAZINE IS HAUNTED #3

will COMPLETE the run of this title.
Who's your daddy?

A book Jim brought me.
Next up will be horror again!

Time for a nice JVJ scan:

DARK MYSTERIES #3

Very fun pre-code horror from Story Comics.
Sadly the last issue Jim had in store.
I have maybe ordered one or two more from my pocket money...
Ach, just wait for it.
I work on comleting all the horror books.

Time to get rid of a first "doublette" scan:

STARLET O' HARA #4

Another scanner did this book before me.
Happened three or four times more.
That's my bad for storing scans for weeks and months...
I always keep a stack of scans in my drawer - and won't upload more than two per week.
Because I won't overfeed you with material.
And I choose which genre might fit...
Yeah, I'm a freak.

Today we have an oldtimer to marvel at:

ALL-NEW SHORT STORY COMICS #2

From Harvey, 1943. Jeez.
Still some pages missing, but the existing ones are very fine!
Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: Yoc on October 18, 2013, 07:44:40 PM
Very nice to see this one - thanks very much for sharing it JVJ.

Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: tilliban on October 21, 2013, 04:59:55 AM
On with the rarities!
Here's a very seldomly seen

CRACKAJACK FUNNIES #7

from 1938. Jeez. Sadly middle sheets missing, but else relatively fine...
Signing out for a week.
My globetrotting mission leads me to Rome, Italy.
Looking at ruins in POOR condition. Don't you have any MINT ones here, Signora?
Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: JVJ on October 21, 2013, 07:01:39 AM
Like the wizard from the Arabian Nights, Tilliban, we should wander the streets offering 'New comics for old! New comics for old!' See if it works. Alladin's wife fell for it. While we're at it, we might try 'New wine for old!' And hope for the best. Karen and I are off tomorrow to celebrate my birthday with lunch at De Vinis Illustribus and a bottle of 1949 Clos de Vougeot plus whatever Lionel brings to the table. DVI being our favorite wine merchant in Paris and an invite to his table something to treasure and, surely, savor.

Then it's off on Thursday to Breda and some measure of fun and games. Any DCM members attending the Strip Festival Breda please come up and say hello. I look SOMETHING like the avatar painting, just not quite so distinguished. You might find me at the Flesk/Spectrum booth as John brought some ImageS over and is giving me some space to display/sell them.

I'll see YOU, Tillmann, the following week.

Peace, Jim

Greetings to you ALL from Paris, France - where I went to see the wizard!
Our own JVJ - Jim Vadeboncoeur, Jr.
Instead of giving me a brain he presented me AGAIN with a pack of comic books.
And who needs a brain when he can read fun stuff like this crime/horror hybrid???

Pay NO attention to that man behind the beer stein.

Tilliban just left to catch the TGV back to Koln where he will process the latest batch of comics PLUS a whole brain and a half full of IDs we made on Quality and Ziff-Davis horror issues. Watch for his updates on DCM, GCD, and on his own http://fifties-horror.de website. He'll be fixing a lot of inaccurate and blank GCD entries.

Great visit. Thanks for making the effort, Tillmann.

Peace, Jim (|:{>

Ah, well, you know, there's a price to what we're doing.
After three days of spotting art in horror comic books your face starts to derail in strange ways...
(photo proof below)

For today let's see some leftover scan - last we have from this series.

SOLDIER OF FORTUNE #4

Jim, of course, stays his guru-like calm.
He's seen too much, I think.

Enjoy. Can't scan at the moment, my computer is slowing down Photoshop to a near standstill.
Hmmmpfh. Let my notebook defragmentate for three whole days - and still continuing...
Maybe I should just restart the damn thing.

The tilliban upload bonanza continues with this interesting war time young women's magazine:

CALLING ALL GIRLS #43

Something JVJ picked up.
Why's there sometimes a black upload thumbnail?
I wonder.
Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: Yoc on December 03, 2013, 11:15:39 AM
Hi T,
Usually the Black thumbnails happen when the cover scans are over large (above 1.5 or so mb) or not jpgs - ie PNG or TIFFs.
In your Calling All Girls case none of these apply.  I've no idea why it or two of the FH books I added have a problem.  Grrrrr.
I can manually fix it so I'll do that shortly.

-Yoc the mystified.
Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: tilliban on December 04, 2013, 11:27:55 AM
Sorry to have mystified you, Yoc!

It's okay now. Your doing? Nice work!
Thank you very much.

Post by: Yoc on December 18, 2013, 09:14:11 AM
If you uploaded it using the Upload File link it must not have made it to us ArKay.
We check for new files daily.

Please read the FAQ on uploading at this link:

OK, up to the 4th upload then.  The upload form isn't for the faint of heart, and this is coming from an IT guy! ;)

Wish me luck.

Rainer
Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: ArKay on December 19, 2013, 08:12:17 AM
Guess I will have to throw in the towel on this one.  It's a high resolution scan and it probably chokes on the images (~1.5-2MB/page). 
Can't bring the quality down any more, this is already at 80%.  The cover doesn't shown when I hit preview so I guess you won't be seeing this either.

"Information: Thankyou for adding this new file to our database.. The admin has required that files are approved before they are added to the database. Your file will appear in our database if the admin approves your file."

I also got this message the last time.
Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: Yoc on December 19, 2013, 09:00:52 AM
Thanks ArKay, that's the message you want to see.  Then your upload just needs to be approved by the staff which I just did.
Your scan is now on the site.

If you would like to add more scans - please feel free to start your own topic say 'ArKay Uploads' or something like that.

Thanks again for the nice new scan of this book,

It's a fellow German pre-code horror aficionado.
Congrats that you joined us, Rainer.

Told you the first one would be hard!
Why didn't you call me?

Now up is a very fine version of
BEYOND #8.

Hurra!
(German for "Hooray")
Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: ArKay on December 19, 2013, 12:00:31 PM
Thanks Yoc!  And it's all there, the preview image & the thumbnails!  Did you have to add them by hand, because they didn't show at ail in the preview?

And thanks as well to Tillmann!  I didn't know the upload failed so I was assuming that it just took a while to approve.  Otherwise I would have asked you directly :)

I had made the mistake of adding the file first before fiddling with all of the other fields so all in I must have uploaded the file at least 3 times, once when trying to add thumbnails and again when doing the preview twice.
Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: Yoc on December 19, 2013, 07:24:31 PM
Hi ArKay,
It's best to first choose how many 'thumbnails' you want to add and update the form.
Next add the rest of the info needed - going top to bottom.
Only hit Preview once and wait for a while for the file to upload - Please do not hit Preview more than once as it will show more than one instance of your upload on our end.

And here's my latecoming christmas present upload:

TALES OF HORROR #9

Last missing issue of that series. So it's COMPLETE - if you don't consider the one reprint issue to be a hindrance to completion...
It's my pre-code horror pleasure.

That's my only pre-code book so far, I collect 70s horror magazines.  And those I won't be allowed
to post for another 20-30 years?  Or even longer? :)

All of my pre-code stuff is from archives.  While the comics are technically PD I doubt that those
reprints are as well.

Technically most of them (if not all) are reprints or at least remakes of 50s strips anyway. :)
It's a rather cheap fix as well!  Well, not as cheap as it used to be since I have pretty
much picked clean eBay Germany and now have to resort to importing them, but they are still affordable.

I remember being sent home from grade school when caught with a copy of one of these amazingly gory 70s mags.  Wow did I get an ear full from the female teacher who found it.  And it wasn't even my magazine!  We were passing it around the room and I just happened to be caught.  Oh well.

You could use some of the earlier Eerie Pubs to fill in some missing pages in a lot of Ajax-Farrells...and maybe even reconstruct some missing ones.  I have been entering Keith Smith's data into the GCD for this publisher and hope to have all of them indexed before the next semester starts.

Post by: Yoc on January 01, 2014, 08:18:37 PM
It's an idea but we can't use anything printed beyond Dec. 1959.
Those Skywald, etc books are still under copyright and they were known to alter the art as well adding gore when needed.

Most of the gore was on the cover anyway which is of course what the teachers saw as well.  I would have loved to have grown up with those books.  I vaguely remember reading the odd Spider-Man or Hulk issue back then, that was about it.

The Eerie Pubs stuff I have compared is 80-90% identical to the original.  Sometimes they would add something (blood, drivel, whatever) or replace and/or insert a panel.  I have seen plenty of comics that seem to have borrowed pages or whole stories from b&w reprints.

I'm sure tilliban would love those 70s books since he prefers b&w comics IIRC!  Today the Eerie stack has gotten a little bigger again.  Also gotten another issue of "Chilling Tales of Horror" which mostly consists of b&w ACG reprints (or maybe swipes)?  They look pristine.  They did some Key reprints as well in early issues.

Hi ArKay,
If you eventually scan your any of your mags I bet T would like a copy and I sure would for my personal collection.  Sadly we can't share them here though.
Good luck in increasing your collection.

@YOC: Great anecdote about your school days!
Didn't you fell a bit delinquent then?
 :D

@JRVANDORE: That is an interesting option.
When we are down to the last 30 missing pre-code horror books, I wanted to start making some "calls".
Asking known collectors to share these special issues.
A last resort would be to "reconstruct" missing issues from their b/w-reprint version out of Eerie Pubs.

@ALL: Sorry for asking a stupid question?
But aren't Eerie Pubs not in public domain?
I thought they were. But the point is rather that DCM won't feature anything past 1959. Right?

Ach, and I just uploaded an Avon funny animal book:
FUNNY TUNES #3
Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: Yoc on January 02, 2014, 11:29:27 AM
Hi T,
It was embarrassing mostly.  We knew the magazine would get us in trouble with all the blood and cleavage on the cover.  I can't recall which title it was but it had lots of wooden stakes being driven into vampires and flesh stripping going on inside.

I would only resort to reconstruction as a last choice.

I can't find Skywald titles on the Copyright site but yes, they were published after 1959 and wont be showing up on DCM.  I wouldn't be surprised if CB+ shares them though I strongly suggest they look deeper into the matter.

Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: jrvandore on January 02, 2014, 12:06:39 PM
Eerie Publications is Myron Fass; Skywald is Sol Brodsky and Israel Waldman (from IW/Super).

There are approximately three periods at Eerie. They started out doing straight reprints of mostly Ajax-Farrell material.  After a few years they started to redraw all sorts of 50's horror material (adding in Comic Media, Harvey, et al.), first with folks like Carl Burgos and Chic Stone, then later with Argentinian artists.  They mixed these newly redrawn stories in with reprints of their reprints and reprints of their previously redrawn.  The last several years of Eerie consist entirely of reprints with no newly redrawn stories.

Of course, Farrell had a habit of reprinting its own material, so it is something difficult to determine what exactly the source of the particular Eerie reprint is.  For those who don't know, Farrell launched a bunch of titles post code and they retitled and revised their earlier stuff for Code-approval.  But they also reprinted their material pre-Code.  Quite a mess to untangle.
Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: ArKay on January 02, 2014, 12:32:08 PM
Yoc, what you described sounds like a typical Eerie cover.  They seem to have had a couple of cut & paste characters they could combine in order to create a new cover.  So many of them kinda look the same.  "Weird" had the most issues.

STRANGE FANTASY #1

Thanks again for your insights, guys!
I was actually JUST wondering about an Eerie Pub reprint of an Ajax story. What baffled me was that they reprinted a toned-down, code-approved version of a story I have in store yet.

So, as JRvandore was pointing out, they must have fished out one of those in-house-doctored stories. Published in a code Ajax mag. Ahaaaa!
It’s a fearful mess I certainly won’t untangle. Luckily someone has DONE it already:

Wow, they put everything in one biiiiiiiiiiiiig page haha.  I own Mike Howlett's Eerie book and plan on actually finishing it one day.
I haven't bothered with getting his index book since there's plenty of information in the GCD to which I am also contributing
(most of my stuff is on hold since they want a synopsis for each story, the ones which are in the "Table of Contents" don't suffice anymore these days).
Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: jrvandore on January 04, 2014, 07:17:46 PM
Not to hijack the thread...but synopses are optional at the GCD.  What the GCD no longer allows is using the companies' text from solicitations or the like.  But you dont have to create synopses.  And I have put in Keith Smith's indexes for all the issues except the ones you are working on, so once you are done we will have all those reprint relationships documented.
Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: ArKay on January 05, 2014, 07:33:01 AM
I simply followed what people had done before me, you know?  My first entry had been accepted which was cool, so then I did a bunch on a lazy Saturday (it's a lot of work actually) and most of them got rejected.  The other Eerie stuff had been indexed that way, quoting the TOC and adding "(from TOC)".  That used to be OK, but it no longer is.  Some of the notes I got for my edits:

"Synopsis: This text should describe the story so you can identify it in a reprint situation. You could also add a name for one or more characters which will make it easier for other researchers to identify reprints. The text should not contain any exclamations like "Chiller!" or "Gulp!""

"The old synopseses you refer to should be replaced one day too.
They slipped into the database before the editorship was established, years ago."

The first one doesn't make it sound like they would be optional.  I haven't read all of those books yet so they will have to remain "in edit" until I do I guess. :)

Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: jrvandore on January 05, 2014, 08:35:00 AM
Trust me, synopses are optional.  As a matter of fact, I am in the process of removing all of those table of contents blurbs.  I think the editor suggested the synopses and characters because he didn't know that Keith Smith had identified all the sources already.  I have put all those in now, so that information is unnecessary to make the identifications.  So if you want to release the four issues you have I will put in the basics and you can put in anything extra afterwards.  Or I will wait until you are done and fix up the reprint notes at that point.

Reprints make me wonder who currently owns the rights to the Eerie Pubs comics.
I know that Craig Yoe is about to publish a volume of Haunted Horror consisting of stories compiled by Mike Howlett.
And today I have received a copy of "The Zombie Factory" from 2007 which also reprints 27 stories.

@jrvandore+ArKay: Of course synopses are optional on GCD, Rainer! You don't have to do 'em.
I am doing them for all the horror books I scan. So I can keep track of certain topics and do searches for stories...

I am close to owning 100 Eerie Pubs books now and so far I have read maybe 4 or 5.   :-X  So no handwritten synopses from me anytime soon.

I found this about the Zombie Factory book:

http://theporporbooksblog.blogspot.de/2011/04/zombie-factory-edited-by-patrick.html

Quote
It's not clear who (if anyone ) now owns the reprint rights to the Eerie comics. According to Mike Howlett's comprehensive overview of the Fass publishing empire, in 1976, increasing acrimony between Myron Fass and Countrywide co-executive Stanley R. Harris (Fass actually fired a bullet through the wall of his office and into Harris's) led to the latter man's departure to form Harris Publications. Harris took with him the rights to publish the horror titles.

No one knows if Stanley Harris and Harris Publications, which is still in operation ('Vampirella' is one of its more well-known titles), intends to release the Eerie equivalent of the affordable softcover compilations for Old School comics, as the Marvel 'Essentials' series or the DC 'Showcase' series have done.

And then...

[Presumably the Eerie comics presented in 'Zombie' are in the Public Domain, but I'm not one to quibble over licensing rights.]

I'm saving you plenty of space, those are just links to the images on my private page ;)  I don't usually upload stuff to every page I post.  I have a 27" monitor with a high resolution so to me those pages don't appear to be all that big.  I apologize if they are over the top.  I have scaled them down to 50%.

This is an example of a slightly modified comic, they only added some black here and there.  The original book hasn't been uploaded here, but I found this first page in an eBay auction.  
It would have been nice to compare them panel by panel.  It's originally from Ajax/Farrell's Haunted Thrills #6.

True... I think half of the horror comics are about love or lack thereof though  :D

This one has actually been one of my favorite Eerie stories so far, that's why I had scanned it.
The original Haunted Thrill goes for a lot of money, otherwise I would have bought it.
It's in 3 different Eerie issues as well.

And up now is another missing book from Key (no one has missed, though).
Just filling gaps, and this is NO horror book.

PRIZE MYSTERY #2

But, guys, attention, please.
Mike Howlett got back to me - concerning the copyrights to Eerie Pubs:

While working on the WEIRD WORLD book, I made many attempts to contact Stanley Harris about the rights of the Pubs and he would never get back to me.
Eventually, he had some kid call me and say "We no longer have the rights to CREEPY and EERIE", which of course meant the warren stuff. They had no recollection of The Eerie Pubs. Since the last published stories from Harris were in 1982, I feel we're all safe.
The stories were all plagiarized in the first place so I doubt they were EVER submitted for actual copyright. I searched the US Copyright website and never found anything. Some (not much!) Fass and Harris stuff, but no Eerie.
In the years since the WEIRD WORLD OF... book was published, I was waiting to get a phone call or letter saying I owed someone money, but it hasn't come!
So, I feel pretty safe doing the WORST OF... book (which is almost done) and comfortable saying the stuff is in the Public Domain.


I thought as much!

How did Prize Comics not print Prize Mystery?  Tsk tsk.

Many thanks for the info on Eerie Publications as well.  Sounds like another case of 'orphan works' where somebody holds the rights but doesn't know or care about them.  They fall after our 1959 cut-off date and frankly I'd have trouble making them a part of DCM given their very graphic covers, etc.  Call me a prude I guess.  I wonder if they show up on CB+ some day?

Please welcome DIABLO and his

STRANGE FANTASY #5

A rare book from Ajax-Farrell. And it’s a fun one!
I did some editing and uploaded the book for him.
As a first-timer he scanned only the stories. Which I am very fine with.

Note to DIABLO: the DCM completist police urge their scanners to present issues cover-to-cover (c2c). That is the whole booky shebang.
Don’t hand in the rest, please. Not for this one. Editing missing pages in is more work than scanning it all again.
 ???

Feel hugged by all of the staff at DCM - and those nerds out there reading comic books, tch!

Many thanks guys!
Welcome to the ranks of noble scanners Diablo.  :)

I uploaded a 'fixed' version correcting the file names.

Diablo, we suggest page numbers at the front of each file name using double digits.

Thanks again,
-Yoc

Oooops, very sorry you had to "fix" this book.
 :o
Didn't know about that - or didn't remember (I was educated a long time ago by you, Yoc).
I'm naming the single JPEGs from "Page01_Booktitle_Issuenumber" to ""Page36_Booktitle_Issuenumber".
That seems to work fine - and I'll remember that if the next guy comes and offers to scan.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: Yoc on February 02, 2014, 09:38:48 AM
No problem T.  I double check them most of the time.
It's easy enough to just click on Preview and if the first two pages are a cover and ifc it's likely fine.

Thanks again for all your work.

I choose to upload what's missing most at the moment.
And it was another day for romance. Your bad.

Rest of issue is rather lame, though.

Totally coming through, now.
As promised, it's a horror book again -

CHILLING TALES #13

Veeeery nice one. Rare Matt Fox art ("Hand of Glory") inside.
These Youthful horror issues are quite something, too bad I only got the one.

Easter came early this year.
Newbie by the name of RustlingsTim donated scans of a hot and loooong missing pre-code horror book.
I renamed, edited and cropped the files to give you my version of

Yoc, you might wanna check this one for uploading correctness and such.

DARK MYSTERIES #22

You hinted at problems with file naming (I don’t experience those on my end). I rename these files and they come out as „PageXY-DarkMysteriesXY.jpeg.jpg“ or such. I don’t know why that happens, but it causes no problems with me. But seems so somewhere in the DCM universe.
Sorry for that. If you know what’s going on, tell me. I can maybe prevent such things in the future.

And I join the effort by uploading

EERIE #8

The US version finally online. My first token of affection for our 4th anniversary! Yay!
Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: Yoc on March 28, 2014, 01:08:35 PM
Thanks T.
I suspect you have you options set to hide the file formats and when you add .jpeg you are not seeing .jpg is already there.
BTW, you might want to avoid using jpEg all together.  If you mix them you will sometimes see them show out of order is some apps.

I'll give it a look.

For today I chose a "western" book all about native Americans:

CRIME AND PUNISHMENT #54
CRIME DOES NOT PAY #67
JUSTICE TRAPS THE GUILTY #48
JUSTICE TRAPS THE GUILTY #73

and "CHAMBER OF CHILLS #14" (which tilliban already added as a "cam-scan", but I hope he doesn't mind).

Post by: Yoc on April 22, 2014, 03:56:59 PM
Thanks great news ArKay.
And don't worry if a book is already on the site.  There are no rules about it being rescanned and shared as a (diff ver) scan.  So please do scan that Chamber of Chills 14.  I'm sure Tilliban will welcome it as well.

Absolutely fantastic work Arkay did with his HD scan and edit.
You could print that in any kind of format!
And I welcome a true scan of that COC #14.
A digicam shot of a book is always replaceable.

I still got some Avons to upload, so here comes

ALL-TRUE DETECTIVE CASES #4

which is in itself a reprint. Of GANGSTERS AND GUNMOLLS #2.
Not a "different version", but the same contents packed into a new cover.
Well, we want it all here on DCM. The one and only.

Post by: ArKay on April 27, 2014, 06:53:22 AM
Crime month!  

I have noticed that Harvey did a lot of reprinting.  The stories from Witches Tales #6 were all used again to form issue #27 of the same series.  
Issue #7 was reprinted as "Thrills of Tomorrow #17".  
Witches Tales #8 became issue #28.

It must have been very common back then!

Yeah, that's no problem.

Any idea where I would find this book here?  CB+ has it listed as "Mysteries Weird And Strange".  I can't even find Superior here.

http://www.comics.org/issue/64877/

It says that DCM has a scan, but the link just leads to the site and not to a book.

Ah.  Search by genre is something we haven't done.  .
It's on our 'to-do' list for down the road.
Here I would just suggest using the Search feature and type the name of the comic.
Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: ArKay on May 03, 2014, 01:34:28 PM
Well, I better get used to using the search field then.  I don't know why I seldom use it.  This time I wasn't 100% sure of the title.

It's not the first time I have struggled finding something here since I always use the publisher drop-down which only shows the first level. 
Would it also show the contents of the levels below it would make life easier.

Genres help if you're browsing for new stuff I guess, they're nice-to-have.  I have tags/keywords on my cover site so whenever I upload a picture I add a keyword.
It's mostly horror anyway though haha.

Adding genre information to all of the books here sounds like a lot of work! :)

Post by: tilliban on May 04, 2014, 05:32:03 AM
Well, people, ArKay has a point here.
DCM could be structured more user-friendly.
We really should install something like genre-search!

In the meantime I will shoot up a nice Story book:

FIGHT AGAINST CRIME #16

This one features fine artwork by Goldfarb, Wildey, Andru and Savage. Good-looking!

Post by: Yoc on May 04, 2014, 09:51:51 AM

Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: ArKay on May 04, 2014, 01:19:05 PM
That photo gallery software I use doesn't have genre information so I'm thankful for the "Keywords" field which could be used for other things as well.
If you go to the search page it will list all of the keywords. http://covers.arkay.de/search.php  You can add multiple keywords of course.  They're hip!

If you're going to add all that metadata you'll soon turn into a 2nd GCD haha.  There should be a way to integrate their data, eh?

GCD has given permission for use of the data.

That's cool! I use ComicVine's data (they have a public API) for tagging my cbzs, there's a nice ComicRack plugin for it.

I tried finding a good PC program for indexing my paper collection.  It seems to be an impossible task.
The ones I tried all had problems indexing many of my horror books so I gave up!  ComicVine is great, as is the GCD.

Woops, sorry... wrong romance title.   :D

Would someone (Yoc) please forward that to the appropriate scanner (movielover).  Thanks.

Yeah, again sorry about that... if movielover wants to use it as an alternate cover good, if not, that's ok too, I see the GCD has a pretty good alt version of it anyway already.

It just seems lately that when I think "new romance comic scans" I think tilliban... doesn't everyone.  :P :)

Whoa, Drusilla!
I am NOT the romance man, I deal in horror!
See for proof my new update:

MISTER MISTERY #3

Ahahahah.
Though I have to confess I got tons of romance books coming!
Aaaarrrgghh!!!
Starting very soon, too soon with all three issues of CAMPUS ROMANCES.

Crime and Punishment 054 (http://digitalcomicmuseum.com/index.php?dlid=23955)

You all saw me totally through... is that correct English?

I AM the romance man.
No more horror, I'll join the romance upload avanlanche with the first of three

CAMPUS ROMANCES #1

Still got this and two more previously unseen books from Avon - all romance.
We'll finish this quickly. Three days, three Campus Romances.

JOURNEY INTO FEAR #5

it is. A digicam shot which turned out quite ... not so good.
Am alway a bit ashamed to upload these.
They're just a documentation.
Still got four more of those photo-books, but three of them look better than that.
You'll see - in time.
Got some good scans coming as well.

No worries T.  As you say, they are essentially placeholder scans and certainly better than no scans at all.  Our thanks to you and WhiteWolf.  :)

Added:

Fix uploaded for (still in the queue, tag and describe as you see fit):

Crime and Punishment 025 (http://digitalcomicmuseum.com/index.php?dlid=21242)

I tried to match the 4 missing pages I added and failed somewhat.  They don't blend in 100%.  May rescan the whole book one day.

Was a bit busy this week and couldn't make any scans.

Hmmmphh. So I present you with a nice scan of

ADVENTURES INTO THE UNKNOWN #54

Back in the saddle again folks, riding hard with

KID COWBOY #1

I'm gonna feed you the whole run of this Ziff-Davis book!
About a sharp-shooting kid, tchhhh.
Interspersed with the whole run of a new romance book (ah, finally) and some surprises.
Coming to a computer near you in the next weeks.

Thanks, Geo!  "Justice Traps The Guilty 048" is in the queue now.  Could someone please change the "The" to lowercase?  Don't want it to stick
out like a sore thumb.  I'm a little OCD about those things.  :D

Way to go with the crime books, ArKay!

I wanted to give you more romance (of course), but since there was so much of it up yesterday, I changed sides and give a rare code-approved something:

DARK MYSTERIES #24

And the first two stories are actually fun!
Will return with a veng... a romance book.
Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads

Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: ArKay on May 29, 2014, 12:28:26 PM
Thanks, T!

After having scanned and read a few of those crime books I am wondering how many of the
supposedly "True Crime" stories actually happened. Stories involving hypnotism or amnesia make me lose faith.
And since they often "change the names to protect the innocent" they are next to impossible to verify.

Jeeeezzz, ArKay!
Never trust ANYTHING you read in comic books!

Better still - don't read them!
 :-X

That's my advice for you out there concerning

KID COWBOY #2

Fantasy tales from the Wild West!
Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: ArKay on June 01, 2014, 10:08:15 AM
Can't stand romance comics, can't stand westerns.

Only thing that's worse? Western romance comics! I know they're out there.
Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads

Post by: tilliban on June 03, 2014, 10:29:51 AM
Sorry to disappoint (half disappoint?) you, Arkay, but I've got only a normal romance comic.
Yay!
I threatened you with it - now it's happening. New series going up - complete, starting with

CINDERELLA LOVE #10

First issue.
If you can manage, dear admins, create a folder for that.
There'll be 11 issues coming.
Heh, heh, heh...

It's fun to be a romance fiend!

Say, isn't this book public domain? I haven't found any scans of it so far. Maybe I'm just blind as usual.  Pre-ordered the hardcover.

Hey, that's a swell idea.
I could drop all that horror crap and use my skills to open up PRE-CODE ROMANCE.
You got me thinking there...

Am I joking?
Are you getting all goosebumpy yet?
You won't be able to start your computer anymore - without fearing it actually might have happened...
That is my ultimate horror for you.
Teasing you with

CINDERELLA LOVE #11 (second issue)

Much more to come.

Since other scanners uploaded western and crime, I chose romance again.
Your bad luck!
 ;)

CINDERELLA LOVE #4

Maybe you'll wanna add my remarks like "second issue" and "third issue" again.
When we get to numbers #10 and 11. Heh heh.
We'll burn that bridge when we cross it.
Or something like it...

Ah, forgot!
I'm signing out for the rest of the week, cause I will attend THE German comic con this weekend.
Comic-Salon Erlangen 2014.
Making the rounds with my FIFTIES HORROR project.
"sundancetrance" is with me, "whitewolf61" will eventually join for a day.

I got you a rare science fiction book today (courtesy of JVJ, of course):

CRUSADER FROM MARS #1

We do not have the allegedly existing #2, though...
Looks great on the outside, sounds exciting, but inside it's very mediocre stuff.
No good artwork, either.
Well, that's comic books for you.

So I snuck up another romance book:

CINDERELLA LOVE #5

That one's got at least a great cover.
Rrrrrr. Hubba hubba snort.

And I have a request for you admins.
Could you please relabel
Cinderella Love 012 -JVJ
to
Cinderella Love 003 (#12 on cov) -JVJ ?

Cause that 12 is the third issue - and confusing to see a missing #3 at the moment.

KID COWBOY #5

This will be my last upload for a bit of time, becaaaause:
Just informing you that I am signing out for the next two and a half weeks. Going on my family summer vacation – to the Offline Islands!
Nah, I’m traveling tot he volcanic isle of Stromboli (north of Sicily). Ever heard of that? It’s fabulous, been there before.
But I’ll be cut off from the rest of the world. So do not be alarmed by my absence or my not returning mails or such. The last days of July will see me back in the computer saddle again.

Ah, Tillmann,
Welcome back! I meant to tell you before you left that when we Americans say "Break a leg!" it means have great success. It is not to be taken literally. You silly Germans...

Nice to have some time to get back into the conversation. ImageS is at the printer and I'm waiting for the proof copy to review. Until then, it's just relaxing and trying to catch up on little things like doing the laundry and cleaning the house. We have tickets for Paris for Sept. 28. So plan your visit accordingly. The weekend of Oct. 10-14 is taken, but all else is open. Hope to see you there.

Well, good people, the novus scanner group invited me to join them.
Which I did. Meaning for you that my uploads will now be a bit larger than usual.
You are now getting every page with a 1440 pix width.
Was 1200 re. 1300 pix before.
Whomever that may concern!

And we join the western trail once more:

Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: tilliban on August 02, 2014, 08:51:37 AM
I have absolutely no idea, dear Yoc.
Why they choose 1440 pix width as their SMALLEST (!) format.
I frankly don't get why people insist on high-res files for books which were abysmally printed...
Sigh.
It's the new times. Everything has to be HD, blu-ray, 4K and 3-D.
Heck, I'm still watching DVDs on a telly with cathode ray tubes.

But for today it's another treat courtesy of JVJ:

Stories are crap, though. Hey, it's a crime comic! Watcha gonna expect for your dime?

Hi guys,
If files are exchanged and sensitive info has to be exchanged to do it perhaps you best use the Private Message option here ((http://digitalcomicmuseum.com/forum/Themes/default/images//im_off.gif)-click this under your post count) or use email?

You are all crazy.
Trying to better shabby old comic books.
But have it your way.
Anyone who likes can download the RAW scans of TRUE CRIME #9 under this link:

http://www.mediafire.com/download/2vq69qv0a7w338n/TrueCrime9RAW.zip

They look like this.
Off-square single pages stuck behind plastic.
My advice: Don't.
To quote a line from the fabulous movie THE BIG LEBOWSKI:
"You are entering a world of pain."
World of pain, dudes...

Just a heads up since few people seem to know this! :) JPEG is the worst format for editing comics in since it's lossy.
It means that every time you save and open one of those files it loses sharpness and clarity.
How much depends on the compression level used.

PNG is good, or TIFF. Of course those files will be much, much bigger!

I save and store my scans in Photoshop's own format and batch-convert (and resize) those files to JPEG for the CBZ when I'm done.
That way I can always come back to those files later should I need a different size or edit something. Of course this takes
up a lot of space.

Anyway, I will give it a shot. I love a good challenge!  O0

Post by: Yoc on August 06, 2014, 06:25:55 PM
Good luck with this ArKay!
Yes, I scan in PNG and batch at the end as well.  Others use TIFF.

Post by: CBpop on August 07, 2014, 05:15:10 AM
Excellent point ArKay, jpg should be the last step in completing an e-comic file.  I favor scanning to PSD files for editing and storage, which was difficult until  larger and cheaper external storage drives became available.  PNG has become popular and is another good alternate to jpg, although I've used  the older TIFF format with a great deal of success.  The resolution is much better with these formats and allows serious editing, down to the pixel level.

Another reason to use PSD file format in editing....  page alignment. Sometimes a scan will not be square due to the staple alignment, damaged page etc and you need to rotate to square a page.  I favor PSD for this operation and you're right tilliban, “ you are entering a world of pain”   ;D  but that's the challenge and fun of using a program like PhotoShop.  Using the PS Free Transform tool under File will rotate a page nicely.

 There is also something I call “scanner distoration” where the bottom of a page is smaller than the top due to problems with trying to flatten a page for scanning.  The PS cropping tool has a  setting that allows you to square up the art, a little tricky but worth the effort.

Just some of the fun in bringing the old comics back to life  8)
Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: ArKay on August 07, 2014, 07:13:08 AM
Yeah, PSD stores Photoshop related stuff so I use it for my own files. I would convert to PNG or TIFF if I needed to share them with someone else who may not have PS or use a different version. Luckily simple PSD files (no layers or other fancy stuff) are understood by many programs these days so batch conversion is easy with tools like FastStone Photo Resizer.

http://www.faststone.org/FSResizerDetail.htm

I could probably use Photoshop for the conversion, but this tool does a great job and is very easy to use.

For me scan restoration is fun, and I still learn new tricks with every book I do. The scanning process itself is very annoying. Luckily I don't have to correct perspectives! I always put a heavy book on the comic when I'm scanning. Straightening, cropping and centering them is enough work already! :)
Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: tilliban on August 07, 2014, 09:33:35 AM
I am fuming right now.
 >:D
I know you mean well by telling me how to improve scans.
But I choose to do them my way and I think they are looking wonderful.

I am so mad because I do not see any point in converting miserable and badly printed books into data-intensive high-resolution humbug.

For today it's
CINDERELLA LOVE #7

Weekend will see the next horror book.
Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: ArKay on August 07, 2014, 12:24:37 PM
Huh? You asked for help with this scan in the listing so I don't see what the problem is.

Man, comics are SERIOUS BUSINESS.  I am considering looking for a different hobby because people seem to be offended for every little darn thing.

I best just delete the work I have put into this ALL DAY. What was the point of asking???

I'm outta here for good.

OK, look...

Clearly, I'm getting here too late to the "party," but, while we're fairly liberal about what people say and do around here, we are what you might call obscenely militant about politeness.  The very few people we've specifically banned and are unwelcome are in that situation because they attacked another member.

If anybody chooses to get into a shouting match over a disagreement and take offense over suggestions or advice--welcome or not--such people will also be unwelcome here, because it's a far higher priority for us to have an open community.

Anybody preferring to insult and be insulted, you're perfectly welcome to head over to Reddit or 4chan or the like.  And anybody about to reply to ask what I mean, (a) send it as a private message, because I won't have the forum cluttered with excuses as to why it should be acceptable in this one case, and (b) phrase it very carefully, because I'm outright angry that we've lost a member over what looks to me like a childish pissing contest.

Post by: Yoc on August 07, 2014, 04:29:40 PM
Whoa!!  What the heck?
Guys, please.  Let's keep things calm.

T, I don't think anyone was trying to tell you how you should or shouldn't be doing your scans or edits.  Everyone has their own methods and we've been much the richer for all your efforts.  ArKay I wish had taken a deep breath and waiting a bit before he resigned from the group.  My own comments might have contributed to this and if they did I'm truly sorry for it.  I was speaking in generalities and meant no offence to anyone on their own works.

I hope ArKay reconsiders his stance.  I truly believe we comics scan collectors to be one of the nicest groups of people you can meet with a deep appreciate for the original books and their intent to be read and not just collected like stamps.  Anyone who has gone through the scan process knows what a chore it can be from start to finish.  It's not for the faint of heart scanning some of these books!

T, I hope you weren't upset by anything I might have said.  You know we love you here man!

ArKay, if you happen to read this I hope you'll reconsider things are rejoin.  I think we just had a case of crossed wires here.

ArKay's re-edit of True Crime 009 is now up!

I tweaked the title and description so people would see it was a new edit and not a repost of the old.
Bold my addition as well.

Thanks ArKay!
And thanks of course to JVJ for his comic and tilliban for his original scan and edit.

Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: ArKay on August 11, 2014, 07:36:11 AM
IMHO it's technically not a re-edit because I used the raw, unedited scans.
"re-edit" makes it sound like I took tilliban's edit and messed with that, no?  :-\

Apart from that I'm back! Sorry I left so fast.

Don't you wish you'd stayed in bed.
Looking at DCM, your favorite website, and it's another romance book:

DREAM BOOK OF ROMANCE #7

But don't fret. There will be coming up a horror book next.
And then 256 more romance books.
No kidding!
Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: Yoc on November 17, 2014, 03:31:05 PM
Thanks as always T!
Say, ever think about a series of Romance sites to compliment your horror sites?
Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: tilliban on November 20, 2014, 04:16:58 AM
Nah, Yoc, you won't see a romance website by me...
Craig Yoe is doing similar stuff with publication of his WEIRD LOVE.
http://www.yoebooks.com/comic_books.php
He's avidly reprinting 50s and 60s romance drek!
Tchh.

For now I chose to upload a missing crime book from my own library.
Classic stuff from ACE:

MEN AGAINST CRIME #6

Dragged my last (I believe) digi-scans out in the open.
Since it's an online-missing book, we can be happy to read it now.

MYSTERIOUS ADVENTURES #21

I got some more scans (!) of Story books coming... teehee...

Today no romance, but Ta-daaa:
My copy and scan of Harvey's

WITCHES TALES #23

does COMPLETE this fine series.
That took some time, jeezus.

Post by: tilliban on December 13, 2014, 09:54:32 AM
Aaaand the next series COMPLETED, gentlemen:
Jim's issue of

WAR BATTLES #3

finishes off this Harvey title.
Narf thinks his #4 needs an edit.
I am thinking of doing a diff version rescan - cause
a) I got that book lying here, from Jim.
b) Narf's copy looks pretty ragged, torn and off square.

I will scan MY copy (a good condition c2c book) and upload - sometime the following year.
Nuff said.
Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: Yoc on December 13, 2014, 10:00:26 AM

Yeah, #4 could use an upgrade someday.

Starting orderly with

Post by: Drusilla lives! on December 17, 2014, 09:37:59 AM
Yes, I suppose it's true... and what a rare and wonderful thing to behold when it works out.

Sadly, it doesn't for most... so they wait around for the second issue. :P :)

Sometimes.  :)
Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: tilliban on December 19, 2014, 08:22:53 AM
And - behold and pronto - here comes that second issue.
And again we ask tentatively:
Can first love be true love??
Yep, that is their slogan, motto and hook line.

While the jury is still out on that one, start reading:

FIRST LOVE ILLUSTRATED #2

And I love that crampled, mildew-eaten cover!
Makes people realize what kind of old crap we're handling here...
Think I'm gonna give your more love for christmas - plus a really nice horror book from my cabinet of goodies...

I just can't believe T turned his back on Real Love!  Why T, Oh why?   

I could understand if were Love at First Sight or even a more Glamorous Romance... but this isn't even an ACE book!  Was it Harvey's whispers of Sweet Love that swayed you to leave your Love Experiences behind?!?  Was it the promise of Teen-Age Brides that convinced you to take a vow, and make the commitment to scan the full 50 issue run?!? 

And you call yourself a true ACE comic aficionado!... FOR SHAME!  :D
Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads

Post by: tilliban on December 22, 2014, 01:57:45 AM
Yeah, Dru, it's true, I started out with ACE books - and somehow lost my way...

But we scanners crave diversion (as I'm sure you'd understand).
So it's a biiiig run of Harvey love books, and for my next project I'm thinking a biiig run of Standard romance.
Then I could turn back to a biiiig run of Ace romance books again.
We'll see.

For now, for pre-(code)-Christmas, showing you my love with the upload of

FIRST LOVE ILLUSTRATED #3

In two days a horror book, I promise.
Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads

And I give you a goodie Jim loaned me a while ago.

MISTER MYSTERY #18

That series almost complete - except for that damned number 12.
No one in Germany has got it, I know a guy who is hunting this issue for years...
We'll see.

Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: tilliban on January 14, 2015, 02:11:53 AM
Say you've missed them. Here's a next one:

FIRST LOVE ILLUSTRATED #8

There's a Jack Kamen story inside. Wonder o wonder.

And, as I notice with more bewonderment (is that a word?)---

DCM has broken the 50,000 member barrier!

Jeez, that happened quite fast all of a sudden. Hundreds of members must have joined the last days.
I'm always squinting at that number. Looked to me like the 50,000 was some weeks away, yet.
But here we are. Wow!
Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: Yoc on January 14, 2015, 09:17:45 AM
Yep, check the DCM in the Media topic.  Another mention in a French blog really pushed up our numbers in the first week of this month.

Thanks for the First Love.  I've always enjoyed Kamen's work since my first exposure to ECs.
Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: tilliban on January 18, 2015, 10:38:48 AM
And to take a break from romance (haha, sounds kinda funny if you don't get the context) it's CRIME!

CRIME DETECTOR #1

Just a crude Key book, but I got the chance to get my hands on these surprisingly cheap.
Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads

Nothing much special in this issue. Wait for the next...
Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: Yoc on January 21, 2015, 08:01:24 AM
Thanks T.
I've been only working on Prize Romance books the last week myself.
Lots of Kirby and Meskin I've never seen before.  A shame the printing and colouring was only average at best.
Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: tilliban on January 25, 2015, 01:24:30 AM
The printing is indeed a tragedy, dear Yoc.
The best scan might look sloppy cause of that.
The magnifying effect of our uploading worsens it all...

Anyway, hammering away with more romance:

FIRST LOVE ILLUSTRATED #10

is up.

Had to look up what you were referring to - had no idea that the line is in the song.
Interesting, and I thought I knew the lyrics to "Sympathy for the Devil".
Tchh.

For now it's a last romance shot with

Contains the classic "Black Death", which was remade over and over by the Eerie Pubs later on.
Am saying goodbye for four weeks now, am off to India (or Goa, to be precise), but will be posting impressions on my facebook account.
(under my real name "Tillmann Courth").

For you horror aficionados, there'll be automatic story uploads every Saturday on my site www.fifties-horror.de

Am bouncing back from India with a

BATTLE CRY #10

and a slight tan on my scanning arm!

@Sooth: saw your plea too late, but only found ONE bookstore along the coastline of Goa.
They carried some ACK comic books. Got me three try-out issues and am fairly intrigued by the stuff!
The illustrations are sub-par by my snobbish standards, but they are fun to read!!!

You can get the ACK comic app on iTunes or GooglePlay for tablets, though.
Sadly I do not own such a device.
http://digital.amarchitrakatha.com/
If you like, there's the possibility of reading digitally.
Which should be fine with us here at DCM.

Jeez, I'm holding back on my romance books, cause there's suffocatingly many going up these days.
So I'm gonna suffocate you with my love some other time.
Gladly I found WAR stuff in my scanning drawer:

US FIGHTING AIR FORCE #5

Wooah, much air fighting going on here!
As opposed to their sister title US LOLLING AROUND AIR FORCE, which got canceled after just two issues.
Unfair.
Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: Yoc on March 07, 2015, 09:00:43 AM

Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: tilliban on March 10, 2015, 07:39:09 AM
Ach, so much more romance to come.
No place for my romance...

So I chose to upload the first of three early issues of

MYSTERIOUS ADVENTURES #2

Got those surprinsingly cheap, in no good condition, but they make wonderful scans!
So expect more of these (duplicates, though, meaning different versions).
The old scans could use an update, and are now getting it.
Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads

Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: tilliban on March 18, 2015, 11:44:57 AM
And to stop the flow of romance once more, I interrupt (heheh) with a western comic.
Although it is a "doublette".
Meaning a book I scanned while someone other uploaded his version. Just bad timing.
So it's a "diff ver" now of Avon's

JESSE JAMES #23

I waited a year to present this. Quite nice art inside, but it's not much different (if at all) to freddyfly's version.
Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads

Apart from all the romance

FIRST LOVE ILLUSTRATED #18 #19 #20 #21 #22

I managed to squeeze in another funny book from Charlton:

FROM HERE TO INSANITY #8

and finally a horror comic (if only a - better though! - "different version"):

MYSTERIOUS ADVENTURES #5

And since #23 is missing, we continue with

FIRST LOVE ILLUSTRATED #24.

One more to come this week.
Then I'm off to the Munich Comicfestival.
The second-largest German comic convention, held every other year.
Four-day extravaganza, featuring british art this time.
Will try and stalk Don Rosa (he's a pre-code horror aficionado, as I'm told).

If someone wants to have a peek, here's the website of the "Comicfestival München":

I was wondering whether you took any photos at that comic fest... then I logged in.

Yet another shot of you and a plate of food?  Don't you take any goofy photos of cosplayers?... Geesh!

I'm still trying to forget that image of you at that French Thai restaurant you posted a year or two ago.   :)

@Drusilla & Yoc:

Yeah, Bavarian beer comes in one-liter-jugs!
In my hometown of Cologne you'll get exactly a FIFTH of that size served.
So, one beer in Munich equals five beers in Cologne.

And I HATE cosplay! Weren't that much "players" around, gladly.
I look the other way as fast as I can.

Romance books absorb all my patience, uploaded two more over the last days:

FIRST LOVE ILLUSTRATED # 25 + # 26

No Leia slaves girls around, but up went

CRAZY, MAN, CRAZY #1

It's mostly crap, though. But interesting as hell to see HOW bad they could be!

And here's a first for me - I rescanned one of my own books!

SPOOK #30

Deserved it. Was one of my first scanning jobs, done on an office fax machine.
Pages got terribly off square!
Can correct that now. And it's high-res now.
Printing is as bad as ever, though...

And we are closing the gap between FIRST LOVE ILLUSTRATED #31 & #34 by uploading

FIRST LOVE ILLUSTRATED #32 & #33

There you are.
#34 I bought myself two years ago - but Jim would have got it anyway.
Will keep continuing when I am back.

Am away again (tch) - this time to the South of Spain.
Since I am dragging my notebook computer along, I might be able to give you more books.
Should I find a stable WIFI connection...
We shall see.

Closing another gap here and coming soon to an end for this series...

O woe! O woeful, woeful, woeful day!
Most lamentable day! Most woeful day
That ever, ever, I did yet behold!

Sweet love, renew thy force.  Be it not said
Thy edge should blunter be than appetite,
Which but today by feeding is allayed,
Tomorrow sharpened in his former might.
So, love, be thou; although today thou fill
Thy hungry eyes even till the wink with fullness,
Tomorrow see again, and do not kill
The spirit of love with a perpetual dullness.
Let this sad int'rim like the ocean be
Which parts the shore where two contracted new
Come daily to the banks, that when they see
Return of love, more blessed may be the view;
   Or call it winter, which, being full of care,
   Makes summer's welcome, thrice more wished, more
       rare.

Dear Drusilla!

In another life you'd have been a romance comic author!!
For sure.
But do not fret. There are more romance titles lurking in the well-lit shadows.
Heh, heh.

Meanwhile, we upload Ace's

SCIENCE COMICS #5

and COMPLETE another mini series!
Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: Drusilla lives! on August 19, 2015, 12:55:53 PM

And we add to our databanks

MONKEYSHINES #2

as well as

FIRST LOVE ILLUSTRATED #45 in a different scan.
Notice:
I did NOT scan the next four issues of that title, because they are fully fledged reprints of older issues
(namely FLI #46 = FLI #7; FLI #47 = FLI#9; FLI#48 = FLI# 12 and FLI #49 = FLI#15).
One more book will come. Explain you there.

I'm giving you this reprint, cause the original is not online.

Uff! Done with those books.

No, Dru, according to GCD it's only a 5-issue-run!

http://www.comics.org/series/15837/

Probably a try-out. They were trying out titles all the time...

And up is a fresh scan of a horror book:

MYSTERIOUS ADVENTURES #3

And a single book of a Toby romance series I picked up somewhere:

GREAT LOVER ROMANCES #20

Next up probably a funny book.

Didn't check that. We are going to fill another gap with

Wait for another issue, then this will be completed, too.
My special Sunday treat is JVJ's

EH! #3

Sadly only this one, this gap cannot be filled by me and Jim.

Narf and dsdaboss both shared something this week so you aren't completely alone.

I've been sidetracked by a couple other projects.  One that will get a BIG debut in early November.  I'm very excited about it.
Once the projects get finished I'll get back to working on some raw Soothsayr scans waiting for us.

Keep up the good work!

Seeing those issues of FIRST ROMANCE go up – I’ve got one single issue of those in store.
Here it is:

FIRST ROMANCE #21

Lest I forget…
But of course we'll continue with that series you last saw going up

REAL LOVE #30

This romance flood of books is happening on its own.  None of it was planned by the staff.  It would have been perfect for Feb but we don't look gift horses in the mouth.
Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: tilliban on October 31, 2015, 08:31:02 AM
Open wide to look this gift horse in the mouth:

BLACK CAT #52

Now in a fresh and big scan. My Halloween treat for you.
Sadly I couldn't come up with a missing horror book.
All I have now left are four more different versions of existing precoders.
Well, done enough, gotta leave some gaps to fill...

Post by: tilliban on November 05, 2015, 02:46:28 AM
Well, last time around I gave you

REAL LOVE #31

But since there's so much romance going up, we'll take a short break for this series (#32 is MISSING anyway)
and lose a doublette scan while no one is looking:

KID COWBOY #10

I did scan the same time last year as member "badge" did. Now mine goes up.
We'll continue with romance...

Well, gaps will be gaps - and we won't be able to close ALL of them, but here's some more recently uploaded MISCELLANEOUS stuff:

FRISKY ANIMALS #50
YOUNG LOVE #58


Expect one more of those Friskies...
More romance and some horror doublettes in the making.

Ooops, I may have committed an uploading mistake.

DIARY LOVES #4

showed some error, right? Uploaded it freshly again!
Please delete faulty version!

Else up went:

TOMB OF TERROR #14
LOVE LETTERS #11
FRISKY ANIMALS #47
Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: Yoc on January 19, 2016, 10:55:04 AM
Thanks T.
That's a nice variety there.  Well done!

I removed the bad Diary Loves 4 but it resulted in two of your thumbnails from the good version being zapped as well.  Sorry.

Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: tilliban on January 21, 2016, 02:42:46 AM
Nothing to be sorry about, Yoc.
My bad.
Up is up. Thank you.

And with
LOVE CONFESSIONS #20

I am ending the single romance book upload bonanza.
Next romance upload will be the beginning of a whole series...

Signing off for the weekend. I'm off to Madrid, Spain.
First time there, meeting friends, see the town. Call me the reluctant globetrotter.

So, while other scanners are uploading romance, I can offer something boyish:

PATCHES #1

Databank says only this first issue belongs under Rural Home, rest is with Orbit.
That okay with you?
More to come, but then filed under Orbit.
Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: Yoc on January 26, 2016, 11:06:34 AM
Thanks T.
I hate to split a singe book away from a majority.  While techcially correct I feel it needlessly fragments the site.  IMO.
I'll figure it out when you've got them done.

Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: tilliban on February 01, 2016, 03:36:12 AM
I don't really know WHY they split up the PATCHES books...
Suit yourself.

As you may have noticed I'm starting to upload two series intermittently now:

PATCHES #2
went up and so did
INTIMATE LOVE #5 & #6

More of both to come. Every other day.

And as of now, I am logged into this forum for a whole of "6 days" and some minutes, counting up, ever up...

But that is your AGE, right?
Hahaheeha.

And we are continuing as promised with

PATCHES #3
INTIMATE LOVE #7 + #8



Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: tilliban on February 13, 2016, 06:20:41 AM
And we have up now

INTIMATE LOVE #9

as well as

PATCHES #4 and #5.

I've got a troubling question about my upload of PATCHES #5:
Why is the file size ONLY HALF the size it usually is?
On my drive this file is 50 MB, but the upload shows just 24.5 MB.
Flipped through the book, it's complete.

Do you have a new compression system running?
Or what?
Just puzzled: Tilliban


Title: Re: tilliban and the German collectors uploads
Post by: Yoc on February 13, 2016, 09:44:01 AM
Hi T,
NO, we do not have anything new running.
Please try uploading it again.

I just added a book and it's the same size.

Hot chocolate? Why would a sportsman like me drink hot chocolate?

High up in the mountains we chose to drink… (there’s no direct translation for this, but it really is)…
Hot egg liqueur topped off with cream. Can you believe it? True story!

And we’re off with the upload of a new

TAFFY #5

(a sister title to PATCHES) – more of those coming the next weeks!

With grrreat joy we present you the issues of

INTIMATE LOVE #26, 27, and 28

And thus a COMPLETE run of that title! Fanfare, please.

And we closed a first gap in the Blue Bolt cosmos with

BLUE BOLT vol. 3 #6

As well as more gap-closing with

FRISKY FABLES vol.2 #11

And TAFFY #6

Jeez, I've been away quite a while...

Not so much time for scanning, but try squeezing it in.
I need it as a zen-practice!

Managed some gap-filling with the uploads of

HOT ROD AND SPEEDWAY COMICS #4 
(which COMPLETED the run of that Hillman series)

TAFFY goes on with TAFFY #7.

and

LOVE JOURNAL #13

And the good Sir Vadeboncoeur (JVJ) supplied me in his thoughtfulness with some more gap fillers:

BLUE BOLT Vol3 #9

DEAD-EYE WESTERN Vol1 #7


More gaps in both series will be closed over the summer.

Hi T,
I watched it all but I'll need the subtitles to really appreciate it.
You did a great job with the slide show.  You might toss in a Sunny or Junior cover in the Sex section if you aren't limiting yourself to just horror/crime books.  Feldstein had had to be one of the best examples of 'headlight comics'.  Ward's Torchy and Baker's Sky-Girl would also make nice examples in a slide show.

You are right, Yoc, you can never show too few pin-up pics. I had more in store, but my time was limited to 20 minutes! I will hold this lecture again in October – presenting the hour-long version with way MORE pictures! Heh, heh, heh.
 
And I’m bouncing back with the upload of

TOMB OF TERROR #4

A nice and whacky issue, by the way. Presented “Dirt of Death” last month on my FIFTIES HORROR website.
Uploaded more stuff the last weeks, lost track, really.

We had WITCHES TALES #17  (which has rather crappy contents…)
BLUE BOLT vol. 9 #6
DEAD-EYE WESTERN # 11 + 12
LOVE JOURNAL #18
TAFFY # 10, 11 + 12
CRIME DETECTIVE #2


Huh, was rather absent, as I now realize. Well, been busy working for money.
And am on my way to a vacation in the south of Spain. Will see you in two weeks.
Maybe upload one more book before...

No more books to scan and doing a lot of different work by now.
But am making good on my promise to provide you all with last missing issues from Hillman's CRIME DETECTIVE.

Like this one: CRIME DETECTIVE vol2. Nr. 4

Why is it not showing up in the list of books under the title?
Please someone of you fabulous moderators take care of that.
Or did I miss something. Absent too long, it seems.

Arrgh.

Good news, though, on another topic.
Rummaging through my file drawer, I found high-res scans of some ACE horror books.
I did those last year for providing my Lou Cameron book with nice stories.
Book is out, I can start sharing the scans soon.

Do you KNOW about my Lou Cameron book?!

As birthday gifts.
All of these were high-res scans I did two years ago for that Lou Cameron book which came out last year!

I have six more of those, actually.
Will share in due time or with gun put to my head.
