I just bought a low-grade copy of Strange Tales #80 from a seller on eBay for $19.99 shipped! I will scan the cover when it arrives ;)

>I always loved Jack Kirby's art and this was one of my most favorite of his monsters.<

This would be mine (though like many of the best monsters, he was really anything but!):



>Marvel was reprinting a LOT of their pre-hero monster stories back in the early-mid '70s.<

Just doin' what Marvel did - trying to glut the market, and so eat some of someone else's pie! (In this case, Charlton's.)


I love Jack Kirby and that is one cool monster. I can see inklings of early Hulk in that guy.

Very cool!!! I bought the Harvey Horror reprints.

The Yoe books usually aren't comprehensive, right?  They just pick the best examples?  I know their Dick Briefer Frankenstein comics was just a selection.

Usually the Yoe books are examples of the best of and quite often pertain to certain artists.. In this case though with COMPLETE VooDoo they will be in a full run over,I believe,3 volumes. Probably why the PS artbooks and Harvey horrors are usually more than 2X the price. Full runs.

I wonder why he chose this one to do the full run?  I would have thought some of the other stuff would do well, also.  We had alot of interest in the Eerie Publications one.

Mine is only in Good/Very Good condition, but it was the only first print listed at the time so I snagged it last Saturday and it just arrived yesterday afternoon.

I try to shoot for Fine to Very Fine, if I'm going to shell out the cash for a comic.  It doesn't have to be immaculate, but I definitely want it to be nice.  Yours looks like a fantastic reading copy, though!
