Sterling Silver

Had a great week this week, comics wise. After sitting on my rear end for near three months, I'm back hunting out books and purchasing Silver Age.
I managed to buy some early Amazing Spider-man books from a nice chap over at the CGC boards, ASM #11 and #24, both in the VG range. The cover to the ASM #11 is especially sweet



If you want a bigger scan, just left-click and drag the scan to the url
(address) bar

Love those funky Ditko poses and the grade is just prefect, still a good
looking book but not high enough to command nosebleed prices. I wouldn't
mind getting the rest of the #1 to #40 run in the same grade

And from fellow Mid-grade Silver Age collector "Aces" Chris I bought some
early Thors. It looks like Thor will be the new series I'll be trying to
complete this year, after buying the entire Simonsson run last month, I've
now bought a near full run from #143 through to #160 (Kirby !!)....If My
math is correct I'll need another 60 or so books prior to these (including
the Journey into Mystery books) and then of course about 250 after
that...but hey who's counting ? Certainly not me as I'm too busy enjoying
the great Jack Kirby artwork and the far-out stories of these 60's gems.

Funny really I never really liked Thor before, but then again I never
really read the books, I just assumed they wouldn't be my cup of tea...go figure
