here are a few more i got from north coast nostalgia (see october 15th post). the demon #2 (original series), and our fighting forces #138 i got from the actual store on ridge road, both are in spectacular shape.  the captain marvel #9 (nm 9.4) i picked up off of north coast nostagia’s eBay store. this comic comes from one owner, he bought it in the 1960’s and bagged it and put it away in a huge collection that north coast is featuring on their eBay site. that eBay store is amazing, he has TONS of books listed, all in high grade. if you collect this kind of stuff, that is the place to look, i’m gonna have to practice some restraint.

the three of these books all have legendary silver and bronze age comics artists. captain marvel is drawn by gene colan, the demon is done by jack kirby, and our fighting forces is drawn by joe kubert.

here are some links..gene colan, –  jack kirby, –  joe kubert, –  captain marvel, –  the demon, –  our fighting forces,  – north coast nostalgia’s ebay store

cgc

here’s a recent comic book acquisition. it’s a copy of ’not brand echh’ #11 in cgc graded 9.6 nm+ condition. not brand echh was a statire comic on marvel’s and dc’s super hero’s, it ran 13 issues in the late 1960’s, this copy being from december 1969. since it wasn’t taking anything seriously, the collectors at the time didn’t take their condition seriously. so it is hard to find copies that are in high grade. not brand echh’s central super hero was “forbush man” a hero with no powers who wore red long johns. on this cover in the lower right side is a drawing of a german plane flying at king konk. the pilot is taken directly from the comedy show ‘laugh in’ which was ground breaking tv show in the late 60’s.
here’s what wikipedia say’s about the book’s name “The series title was a play on an advertising convention of the time, in which a competitor’s product was not referred to by name, but simply as “Brand X”; DC was sometimes playfully called “Brand Echh” in Marvel “Bullpen Bulletins” and letters pages, hence this comic was “Not Brand Echh.” The official title of the comic in its postal indicia was Brand Echh for its first four issues, and afterward Not Brand Echh, the cover title from the start.”

cgc grade

cgc, or Certified Guaranty Company is a comic book grading service independent from any comic book company. grades run from 1, being the worst, to 10, being the best. what they do is have three professional graders go through a comic and decided on what level of condition the book is in. the three conditions are then devided by three to come up with the final condition grade. the comic is then “slabed”, which is encased in a protection plastic case and sealed so it can’t be openned, hence preserving the grade.

ok, two of my favorite seasonal food products are now available…they have my approval. the pumpkin frosted mini wheats and the giant eagle brand sweet potato/pumpkin tortilla chips. i eat the hell out of these things, i buy multiples when i go to giant eagle. the mini wheats are incredible and the chips are subtle yet very distinct sweat potato and pumpkin taste. if anyone has a line on other good pumpkin products, let me know.

comics

north coast nostalgia, best comic book store in cleveland…carol and johns are a close second. why i pick north coast is that beyond the fact they carry a huge amount of new comic books weekly, they also carry a good selection of high grade bronze and silver age comic books. these are two recent purchases, hulk #134 and man-thing #11. the hulk is a warehouse find, they have about ten of this copy, it was hard picking mine out because of the pristine shape they are in. the man-thing is almost perfect, both are CGC worthy. i decided before i went to store i was going to buy only one book, i did real good leaving with only two thanks to audrey, the amount to select from made it really hard not to leave with 12. north coast nostalgia is located at 5853 ridge rd in parma ohio. their Facebook page is HERE, check them out.

rock candy

*ok, highly recommend reading…“ROCK CANDY” magazine! rock candy is like how ‘kerrang’ used to be. they cover hard rock and metal from the 1970’s through early to mid 80’s….the good stuff, like…the iron maiden tour of 1984, UFO classic era by pete way, 7 pages of angel!, thin lizzy, judas priest, accept, scorpions, manpower, vintage humble pie, metallica the early years (when they ruled), triumph, budgie, and so on! it’s like a magazine to go along with my radio show, or my radio show is the soundtrack to the magazine. these issues are packed, no advertisements. the only place you can get rock candy is through the internet, i got exposed to them on Facebook and immediately got a subscription. so here you go.. ROCK CANDY MAGAZINE…….ROCK CANDY FACEBOOK PAGE.

*speaking of my radio show, for those of you who don’t know, my show is called “overrated” and i’m on every wednesday 11am to 12:30pm east coast time on WCSB 89.3 cleveland, or listen on line from anywhere at WCSB.ORG
