More Coastal Comics

January 1998

Thunderbolts #10

Yeah, I know ads like this aren’t super exciting, but I’m a historian and a completist, so I feel compelled to share all the ads from the books I’ve scanned.

Anyway, here we’re visiting East Coast Comics again, almost a decade after the last ad I published from them. And I thought I had a lot of tags last time – well, I think I broke my record again, because in addition to all the regular series, they also listed all sorts of limited series and special sets!

I’m sure a lot of these titles can be found in quarter bins today, but I wonder just how many of them have skyrocked in value.

First-Named Stars of the ’70s

January 1978

The Secret Society of Super-Villains #12

It’s posters of all of the hottest stars! … from 1978. Here we’ve got a set of five posters: Farrah Fawcett, John Travolta, Jaime Sommers, Steve Austin, and Donny & Marie Osmond – all for only $2! That’s right: You can get the Six Million Dollar Man for only $2 – actually, since you get five posters, that means the Six Million Dollar Man would only be 40¢! That’s more than 99.99% savings!

Or, if you’d prefer, you could also order the set of Kiss, the Hardy Boys, Grizzly Adams, Kristy McNichol, and Baretta.

A couple things of note here: Of the actors, their real names are used for half and their characters’ names for the other half. That seems odd to me – I wonder why they did it that way? Maybe the actors themselves weren’t as well known as their characters? Anyway, I don’t think this incarnation of Steve Austin is nearly as exciting as the last one I featured!

Also, they have a name spelled wrong! “Jamie” is supposed to be “Jaime” – the i is on the wrong side of the m!
