Comic Haul: A Stack of Golden Age WAR Comics

I buy comic book collections. So, each Saturday I will show you a portion of what I got. This time it’s War comics, something I know very little about, my love of GI Joe not counting in the least. But even though I’ve never collected them, I certainly have an appreciation for them. So, we’ll look at few that I picked up for $.25 each, some of them dating back even to the Golden Age.

+ More on cleaning comic books here.

+ Here is my eBay store where I’ll occasionally sell my doubles.

By the way, I'm still buying comic book collections. If you want to unload anything from 5 to 100+ boxes in one easy transaction, then please do reach out. clave [dot] jones [at] nerdsonearth.com  Click here for more details. 
A full run of Daredevil comic books.

As a bonus, I’ve doubled the amount of videos on YouTube each week in an effort to show off more classic Marvel Comic book covers. But while Saturdays jump all over the place, Wednesdays focus on comic book runs.

I’m currently working through AN ENTIRE RUN OF DAREDEVIL!! I’m talking every single issue, starting at #1.

I have 40 years of experience in comics and try to be accurate as I present the comics, but I’m doing it on the fly, so an occasional mistake will be made. Although I don’t ask for it, people are more than happy to get pedantic in the comments on YouTube.
