Is Overstreet's Comic Book Price Guide still "the ultimate authority on comic book values"? In 1988 they celebrated Superman's 50th Anniversary with a cover by some guy who was not not a famous Superman illustrator; photos of some items from collector Danny Fuchs' collection; and an interview with creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster.
Here are the front & rear covers and the DC's house ad celebrating the Golden Anniversary..
See you Monday!

Here are the rear inside and rear outside covers of Eerie #13.
A blurb on the front cover told us to "Read why the number 13 scares you!" Well, this idea was never specifically addressed by a story in this issue, but as a representative issue of scary magazine horror from the late 1960s, this mag presented me with a little frisson.
Those finger bones marching one-by-one back to their owner in "Wentworth's Day." The discolored eye in "Tell-Tale Heart." The beautiful cat-girl's glow-in-the-cave eyes. The close-up of ogre loveliness. And on and on.
Makes me wish my allowance had been bigger back then!
See you on Thursday with some Super-pix and the beginning of a book excerpt that includes an interview with our best friends from Cleveland, Jerry and Joe.
