Over the coming weeks, I will be posting comics from an original owner Golden Age collection that I bought recently. The comics in this collection were amassed by two young brothers back in the 1940’s; these books sat untouched in a small farm house for many decades, until recently when one of the brothers passed away at the age of 82. The books in this collection all have excellent page quality (virtually all have off-white to white (or better) pages). All are 100% unrestored; none have ever been pressed or messed with in any way whatsoever. They will all be offered "raw" (unslabbed) at auction with $1 opening bids over the next month or so. There will be hundreds of early to mid 40’s books, including many DC superhero comics, so please be sure to save me to your favorite sellers list to see my new listings each week!


Detective Comics #120 from February, 1947.

Fine to Very Fine condition with supple white pages. Really nice book with just minor defects keeping it from grading even higher. Tiny, light spine stress ticks. Small, light food-like fingerprint smudge middle right front cover edge. A few tiny food-like stain specks lower right front cover. Very tiny piece off bottom front cover edge near bottom right corner tip (really minor, see scan). A few small, light finger bends left back cover. A couple of interior pages have small, light 1/2" brown food-like stains bottom/right margin.

Nice & bright copy with great cover colors!

Terms (

updated Nov. 2018):

*U.S. Bidders: Shipping will be just $5.00 for the first item won; if you win any additional items in a given week, they will ship together for free. I realize that $5 for a single comic can be a bit high in some cases, but if you are able to take advantage of the combined shipping rate and pay just $5 total shipping for a multi-item order, it is a really great deal.

All of my comics are bagged & boarded and shipped between sturdy pieces of cardboard in crush-proof cardboard boxes. I take pride in wrapping everything very securely and commonly receive messages from satisfied buyers complimenting my packing skills. If you buy from me, I promise that your items will arrive safely and exactly as I have described them.

*International Bidders: If you are in Canada, it is $10 shipping for the first item that you purchase and an additional $1 per item after that. So if you buy two comics, the shipping cost would be $11 total; three comics would be $12 total shipping (and so on). If you are in the United Kingdom or Australia, it is $15 shipping for the first item that you purchase and an additional $1 per item after that.

*All Bidders: Items will be shipped within 24 hours of receiving cleared payment. Tracking information will be emailed to you once item(s) ship.

Satisfaction guaranteed; if you are not 100% satisfied with any purchase, it can be returned within 30 days for a full refund of purchase price and return shipping.

Feedback will automatically be left after you have left feedback for me; this tells me that you have received the item and are satisfied.

Thank you for participating in my auctions and good luck!
