Henry Kuttner, The Time Axis. First printed in "Startling Stories" in January 1949, and this was the first book publication in 1965, with a cover by Alex Schomburg. > Kuttner died in 1958 at the age of 42, but in his short life he accomplished quite a bit, such as discovering future Oscar winner Leigh Brackett, collaborating on stories with his wife C.L. Moore (including "Mimsey Were the Borogoves," named as one of the best pre-1965 sci-fi stories by the SFA), writing "Green Lantern" comics, writing a bunch of Cthulhu Mythos stories including "The Graveyard Rats," influencing a bunch of people from Ray Bradbury (Kuttner actually wrote the ending to Bradbury's first published horror story) to William S. Burroughs, etc. He deserves to be better known. > #henrykuttner #clmoore #mimsey #cthulhu #greenlantern #raybradbury #williamsburroughs #pseudonym #nondeplume #alexschomburg #leighbrackett #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #book #sciencefiction #scifi #fantasy #scificovers #pulp #collectiblesciencefiction #bookish #scifisunday

Here's a nice Golden Age double header for #schomburgsaturday and #showoffsunday ! Captain America 26 from 1943 and Human Torch 3 (2) from 1941. Both gorgeous covers from the one and only Alex Schomburg. Got both of these from the recent collection we picked up. Both very low grade with completely split spines, but present incredibly well. Just beautiful! #alexschomburg #captainamerica #captainamericacomics #humantorch #timelycomics #Marvel #Marvelcomics #vintagecomics #precode #comics #comicbooks #igcomicfamily #igcomiccommunity #igcomics #comiccollection #comiccollector #comiclife #igcomiclords #goldenagecomics #goldenage #comicsforsale #comics4sale
Here's Pyroman beating on some Nazis for this #SchomburgSaturday . #StartlingComics #AlexSchomburg
Every single raw book in my collection gets the mylar treatment, and now the slabs do, too! Gotta keep those babies scratch-free, and MyLites2 are crystal clear so they still look great when displayed. Even though this sounds like a sponsored post, it isn't ๐Ÿ˜ This also doubles as a #schomburgsaturday post with Marvel Mystery Comics 28 CGC 5.0 from 1942 as the lovely model. #mylites2 #mylar #mylarbags #comics #comicbooks #igcomicfamily #igcomiccommunity #igcomics #comiccollection #comiccollector #comiclife #cgc #cgccomics #vintagecomics #precode #Marvel #Marvelcomics #timelycomics #alexschomburg #schomburgsaturday #goldenagecomics #goldenage #humantorch
I have not posted much from my collection but was inspired by the post from @streyflexin about the first and second Alex Schomburg covers and wanted to share mine. I am a huge fan of Schomburg and always love looking at everyone's posts that appreciate his incredible covers. #igcomicbookfamily #igcomics #goldenagecomics #marvelmysterycomics #humantorch #timelycomics #alexschomburg #vintagecomics #marvelcomics #comicbooks
Was gonna wait for #schomburgsaturday but regardless of condition, here's something truly rare you don't see every day! MARVEL MYSTERY COMICS #3 ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ This book is huge it has allot of big things going for it, most obvious it's the 3rd ever Marvel/Timely comic ever, the 3rd appearance of The Human Torch๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ The Sub-Mariner ๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒŠ and the angel ๐Ÿ˜‡. This is also....wait for it...tied for the FIRST ever comic cover (timely and any publisher) done by Alex Schomburg. MM3 and Daring Mystery Comics 1 were set to come out the same time Jan 1940. So this is the very first cover schomburg did, he's done covers for pulps years before but nothing for comics before this. Another interesting key about this book is that it's the first time in a comic book that.....a TV appeared in a comic book! Think about it it's 1940..so that's pretty cool. Yes it's got a beat spine but hey it's all there, even just the cover of this would be cool! #stayflexing #streyflexin #igcomics #igcomicfamily #igomicbookfamily #goldenage #goldenagecomics #marvelmystery #marvelcomics #timely #timelycomics #humantorch #submariner #subby #3rdappearance #alexschomburg #schomburg #xela #rare #htf #comiccollecting #comics #comicbooks #comiccollecting

For the first time in my life I really feel a racist wind in my Country ... Very strange ... But I believe in our super heroes against every form of new Nazi policy ... "America's Best Comics" #7 (October #1943 ) ...

All-Select no.3 Spring 1944 from pre-Marvel Timely. Cover art by the prolific Alex Schomburg (born Alejandro Schomburg y Rosa in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico). Schomburg's covers always had so much detail: here he depicts Captain America, Bucky, The Human Torch, Toro, and Namor the Sub-Mariner punching Nazis at a torpedo factory. By 1944, u-boat losses had dropped off but the terror to shipping and coastal waters was engrained in the public consciousness through the losses in 42-43. U-boats hit 1322 Allied ships in 1943 and 582 in 1943 before dropping to 243 in 1944, with a high month of Feb with 88, which is comparable to the winter months of 1943. This issue was 52 pages with 47 pages of stories. Wartime rationing affected the size of some Timely issues in 1944-45. The three headliners were also joined by The Whizzer in this issue, though still in separate stories. All-Select follow the same format as All-Winners: having Timely's big three, their sidekicks and the Whizzer, or another secondary hero, like the Destroyer, or, later, Miss America. #alexschomburg #coverart #comics #goldenage #worldwar2 #timely #marvel #submariner #humantorch #captainamerica #goldenagecomics #punchanazi
It's that day again #schomburgsaturday here is one I've been searching for fighting yank 7 for a long time now, thus book is actually much harder than you'd think to find. So when Gene @shortboxed found one for me (the first one I saw for sale) I jumped on it...thanks again man! It's the #HitlerSpecial ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ love this cover! #schomburg #alexschomburg #fightingyank #ww2 #WWII #goldenage #goldenagecomics #nedor #nedorpublications #igcomicfamily #igcomicbookfamily #realigcomicfamily #igcomiclords #blackterror #captainamerica #startlingcomics #comicbooks #comics #comiccollecting #vintage #retro #igcomics

And my final post of the night goes to this beauty ๐Ÿ˜ Captain America comic #37 classic flag cover by Alex Schomburg. CGC .5 I just love this cover!! So much going on in this classic war cover. This one really highlights Schomburgs ability to cram as much as possible into a small space but yet make it all work together. #alexschomburg #classiccover #flag #captainamerica #cap37 #cgc #vintage #goldenage #goldenagecomics #timley #timleycomics #marvel #marvelcomics #bucky #nazi #ww2 #collection #comicbook #comics
Cal Comic Con pickup: The Fighting Yank 7 (1944) with a classic Alex Schomburg World War 2 cover of The Fighting Yank dropping a "Hitler Special" on a Nazi base. One of the best covers in the run, and tough to find. This one's off to a new home as well! #thefightingyank #alexschomburg #schomburgsaturday #goldenagecomics #goldenage #vintagecomics #precode #comics #comicbooks #igcomicfamily #igcomiccommunity #igcomics #comiccollection #comiccollector #comiclife #cgc #cgccomics #calcomiccon #comiccon #igcomiclords
Let's start today off with a bang! This was my biggest Cal Comic Con pickup: Captain America 27 (1943) in a very nice CGC 5.0 with OW/W pages. This book is one of my GA grails - classic Alex Schomburg motorcycle cover, one of the most sought-after issues in the Cap run. Cap and Bucky are leading Russian tanks over some Nazis, while gunning them down from a motorcyle. This truly is one of the all-time great covers and I can't believe I own one! ๐Ÿ˜ #captainamerica #captainamericacomics #alexschomburg #schomburgsaturday #goldenagecomics #goldenage #vintagecomics #comics #comicbooks #igcomicfamily #igcomiccommunity #igcomics #comiccollection #comiccollector #comiclife #cgc #cgccomics #calcomiccon #comiccon #timelycomics #bucky #Marvel #Marvelcomics

Took me a year to hunt both of these down! Picked up 29 at Emerald City Comic Con last year, and knew I needed a 28 in the same grade to match it, so the hunt began. I love how both of these covers work together, just some pure Alex Schomburg goodness. Two of my favorite books in my collection. #alexschomburg #schomburgsaturday #goldenagecomics #goldenage #precode #vintagecomics #comics #comicbooks #igcomicfamily #igcomiccommunity #igcomics #comiccollection #comiccollector #comiclife #cgc #cgccomics
Berkeley Comic Con pick up: Marvel Mystery Comics 28 CGC 5.0 (1942). One of my favorite covers in the entire run, by the great Alex Schomburg. Love the hooded baddie, little goblins, and of course the damsel in distress. Been on the hunt for this book in this exact grade for a year; super happy to finally check it off the list! #alexschomburg #schomburgsaturday #goldenagecomics #goldenage #vintagecomics #precode #cgc #cgccomics #comics #comicbooks #igcomicfamily #igcomiccommunity #igcomics #comiccollection #comiccollector #comiclife #igcomiclords #Marvel #Marvelcomics #marvelmysterycomics #marvelmystery #berkeleycomiccon
How about another awesome Hitler and tri-axis cover! Americas best comics 7 ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ done by alex schomburg ๐Ÿ˜‰. This is also a suggestive/innuendo cover....err look where Mussolini is ๐Ÿ˜‚ I'm not gonna say anything else lol. He's been in this position before, look at thrilling comics 41 ๐Ÿ˜…. I love how the black terror snaps the telephone cord and Hitler's frightened face. #goldenage #goldenagecomics #igcomicfamily #igcomics #schomburg #alexschomburg #schomburgcover #americasbest #blackterror #axis #axiscover #thrillingcomics #commandocubs #hitler #hitlercover #mussolini #classiccover #iconic #1944 #vintage #comicbooks #comiccollecting
My upgrade ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ One of my favorite timelys of all time. There's just so much going for this book it's just incredible. The only Alex Schomburg and Jack Kirby cover, first app of the badass Nazi fighting character destroyer, Stan Lee's first ever superhero creation which similar to cap 3 drives up the value of this book like crazy, an absolute must have timely/marvel grail that is very tough to get due to its demand and only 24 unrestored copies in the census doesn't help. #igcomicfamily #igcomics #igcomicbookfamily #goldenage #goldenagecomics #mystic #mysticcomics #mystic6 #destroyer #thedestroyer #firstappearance #cgc #cgccomics #timely #timelycomics #marvel #grail #marvelgrail #timelygrail #marvelcomics #stanlee #jackkirby #alexschomburg #schomburg #1941 #ww2 #wwii #kirby

Marvel Mystery Comics 29 (1942) with an awesome Alex Schomburg cover. One of my favorite covers in this series, just need a 28 to go with it. This was the first Schomburg book I ever picked up, at Emerald City Comic Con from Jamie Graham. One of my favorite books in my collection. #schomburgsaturday #alexschomburg #goldenagecomics #goldenage #timelycomics #Marvel #Marvelcomics #comics #comicbooks #igcomicfamily #igcomiccommunity #igcomics #comiccollection #comiccollector #comiclife #cgc #cgccomics #vintagecomics #precode #precodehorror #humantorch #marvelmysterycomics #eccc
Mystic Comics 2 with a nice and busy Alex Schomburg bondage cover! Pretty old comic from 1940, and only 15 on the census. Tough run to collect. There's a lot going on here: hooded bad guys, a girl in bondage going down a death slide into fire, and the Dynamic Man bursting through a wall to save her while trying to dodge bullets and molten metal being poured on him. Awesome. #alexschomburg #schomburgsaturday #goldenagecomics #goldenage #precode #vintagecomics #comics #comicbooks #igcomicfamily #igcomiccommunity #igcomics #comiccollection #comiccollector #comiclife #cgc #cgccomics #igcomiclords #mysticcomics

Ending 2017 on a high note. Went to a little con an hour away and worked a nice little deal for these two golden age beauties. Daring 12 from 1945 featuring the sub mariner, human torch, toro, and the destroyer. Allen Simon cover art. Americaโ€™s Best 14 from 1942 featuring the black terror, the fighting yank, doc Sampson, and the eagle.

I guess I'll join in on the fun, happy 95th birthday to Stan "the man" Lee ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ‚ Here's a really clean beautiful unrestored copy of mystic comics 6 ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ Stan Lee's first big character creation "The Destroyer" ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’€ who operates and kills Nazis within occupied Europe. The origin is great, stands up for the oppressed and whoops Nazi ass, the cover is even better! Incredible cover done by Schomburg and Kirby! Possibly the only cover they both worked on ๐Ÿ’ฅ. Don't ask if it's for sale there's a huge list of people ๐Ÿ˜‚, for multiple reasons everyone really wants one. #igcomicfamily #igcomics #igcomicbookfamily #goldenage #goldenagecomics #mystic #mysticcomics #mystic6 #destroyer #thedestroyer #firstappearance #cgc #cgccomics #timely #timelycomics #marvel #marvelcomics #stanlee #jackkirby #alexschomburg #schomburg #1941 #ww2 #wwii #kirby
Since everyone is posting, this was my 2017 list, I think I didn't do too bad...funny enough the "easiest" book on the list was the only one I didn't get but that's because I went full on golden age and stopped searching for the albedo 2 though it is a sweet book. I was close to buying a nice copy once, years ago, but someone local to it got to it first, I later found out it was @chloes_comic_swag ๐Ÿ˜‚ enjoy it man ๐Ÿ‘. There's so many books I want next so the 2018 list will be tough to make but I also already picked up some from it. Will do a year recap later #comicwishlist #realigcomicfamily #goldenagecomics #Goldenage #flash #flashcomics #captainamerica #captainamericacomics #alexschomburg #schomburg

Here it is... the "other" reason why Cap 3 is so pricey and unattainable is this 2 page story done by Stan Lee his first ever work for marvel. After that the rest is history...so dam you Stan the man for making this book such a pain in the ass to get! I just wanted the schomburg cover ๐Ÿ™„. Well at least the beauty of owning it raw is being able to flip through the amazing pages and see what the story is not just read it on a label . . Very interesting qoute from Stan himseld about it: โ€œNobody read those stories. Thatโ€™s why they let me do one. But you couldnโ€™t call a comic a magazine and get the magazine postal rates unless you had two pages of type. One day I was hanging around filling inkwells and erasing pages for the guys, and someone said, โ€˜Hey, Stan, we need a two-page story.โ€™ So I wrote one. And that was that.โ€ . . #captainamerica ย #steverogers ย #bucky #captainamericacomics ย #cap ย #timely ย #goldenage #goldenagecomics ย #ww2 ย #usa ย #1941 #classiccover ย #joesimon ย #jackkirby ย #kriby #igcomicfamily ย #realigcomicfamily ย #igcomiclords #comicbooks ย #vintagecomics ย #comiccollecting #retro ย #comiccollection ย #10cents ย #firstapperance #schomburg ย #alexschomburg
It's glorious! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ I can't believe I finally got one especailly a copy this nice! Never give up, the books are out there...sometimes lol. Schomburg's first cover in the cap title and one of his most classic/iconic covers ever! It's got it all bondage, Nazis, red skull, a blonde, human rocket launcher and of course cap saving the day. Now the other reason why this book is so pricey and unattainable is because inside is Stan Lee's first ever work for timely (marvel). Another fun fact, the art inside is not only done by Kirby and Simon of course but also MacRaboy played a part! . . Who wants to see the splash page and Stan lee story? . . Closing in on the mini cap run, need issues 5-8, and 10! ๐ŸšจHit me up if you have one or know of a low grade for sale ๐Ÿšจ #captainamerica #steverogers #bucky #captainamericacomics #cap #timely #goldenage #goldenagecomics #ww2 #usa #1941 #classiccover #joesimon #jackkirby #kriby #igcomicfamily #realigcomicfamily #igcomiclords #comicbooks #vintagecomics #comiccollecting #retro #comiccollection #10cents #firstapperance #schomburg #alexschomburg
