Seriously!  He's kicking butt and taking names!

Also, if your comic has been discovered, I would love to see some covers.

Sorry Dave but no. I knew I'd catch some people on this one. Kind of a trick "blurb".


Would it be the Marvel Tales reprint, then? Of course, I'm not sure what issue that would have been... I know MT #30 had ASM #43, but they'd skip occasionally... #62? Or am I just focused on the wrong Prowler?

Michael Casselman- You are correct! That was Limited Collectors Edition C-22. I had the opposite problem. I don't think I was ever able to lay hands on the second edition, with Tarzan fighting the lion against a green background. 

James Best- Thank you, sir! I have fond memories of that issue. I could not believe I was holding an actual (albeit reprinted) chapter of the long-fabled Galactus Trilogy in my hands! Heady stuff!

Leigh & Joseph, thank you! I had a job with a major back issue comics retailer on and off for five years. I worked upstairs in the office, but still had a lot of contact with the inventory and spoke with a great many customers placing phone orders who either didn't know or couldn't remember the issue number of the comic they wanted. "I know it had the Sub-Mariner on it, and it was a space comic..." :-)

Meanwhile, Dave Phelps seems to be blowing the lid off this contest at the moment! Nice work, Dave!

Mike Norris- Green Lantern #40! A classic!

And here's the cover of the Tarzan reprint I first read back in 1973...

Skimmed the thread to see what hadn't been guessed at yet. First the ones I had guesses for:

Joseph Gautier: IN THIS ISSUE: THE DEADLY DEBUT OF SILVER SHADE! ...AND FIRESTORM'S FIERCEST FIGHT EVER!

Don't remember any Silver Shades in Flash so probably a Firestorm. That's a Conway sounding villain and the one issue he did that isn't popping into my head is #53, so I'll go with that one.

Joe Hollon:
DARK SWAMP,
DEAP FEAR!

It's that Spider-Man/Man-Thing issue of Marvel Team-Up isn't it? #68? (You don't get recreations of the Marvel Tales version so I'll assume you got the real thing. :-) )

Brian O'Neill:
THE FIGHT TO SAVE EARTH FROM STAR WARRIORS

Just read a comic with the DC tabloid house ad in it... Superman vs. Muhammad Ali

And here are the other open ones:

James Johnson: "Let the trial by combat begin!! The battle only one of us will survive!"

David Miller:
AFTER THE BIG BANG!
&
RHINO ON THE REBOUND!

Me: The Final Battle!

Shaun Barry: "Slashing DEATH, When the Mysterious Steel Claw Strikes!"

Michael Hogan: DOOMSDAY PLUS ONE

JW Campbell: "Flight Z-40… Location Devil's Triangle… AMBER ALERT! WE ARE BEING ATTACKED BY THE CAPITOL BUILDING!"
