On the spinner-rack: August, 1975 (47 years ago this month). The bronze age was poppin’ with exciting comics this month from DC & Marvel. And don’t forget those scary b/w magazines! How could we resist? Did you pick up any of these gems or now have them in your collection?

  1. It’s kinda nuts to see the comparison in art between something like the Batman family which still feels “silvery” and the Conan which feels smack dab in bronze.

  2. I only have that OMAC. A thought I just had – I appreciate Kubert so much more now compared to Buscema than I did as a child.

  3. I’m an old fart but these are before even my time. I did buy the OMAC collection during lockdown when I was on a Kirby binge. It’s good stuff.

  4. Fun stash! I bought a significant portion of my collection off spinner racks in the early 70’s where you’d get 3 to 5 random books in a poly bag. I still have all of them. I have the Space:1999 issue pictured here.

  5. I can’t believe they were still doing those clickbait-y Superdickery covers as late as ‘75

  6. I’m pretty sure I still have the FF and Avengers (first G. Perez art on both titles!). I also once had that Batman Family (LOVED that cover) and the JLA, but sadly I’m not sure I have them anymore.

  7. Bought the Fantastic Four, First Issue Special, Superman, Justice League of America, Batman Family, and Giant-Size X-Men off the rack. I have the Avengers issue, but I think I got that a few months later. I no longer have the Bat or X book, both of which are all reprints, or the First Issue Special.

    Probably my favorite of the bunch is the JLA, which I think is the story where Cary Bates and Elliot S! Maggin travel to Earth-1 and become respectively villain and hero of the story. Ridiculous fun.

  8. Nostalgia overload! I can practically hear the guy at the register of the gas station/convenience store hollering “Hey kid, this ain’t a library, you gonna buy that or what?!” I finally found a drug store where the spinner wasn’t visible from the check out counter and I could discreetly browse to my heart’s content.
