I can only imagine the thrill of all the unread stories kids would find in these piles each visit. I never experienced this, but recall how cool it was when one of the secondhand/antique shops I’d lurk around would have a few comics mixed in with the Nat’l Geographics, old Life’s, TV Guides, etc.

Can I take the easy one’s on the right to start? Mad Magazine #121, and if both Sad Sack Army Life’s are the same I’ll go with #21 as the font is a darker blue on 21 than 20 background is pink on 20 and 21 is that generic blue/gray they used on covers so often.
Edit : also Outer Space #1. There was only one issue.

Nice group of books on display. Not sure what my budget might have been, but I couldn’t get out of there without at least 7 or 8 of them. Laugh #100 and Archie’s Joke Book #46 are fairly easy to spot, as was Sad Sack #96 with a large Muttsy in the corner. I just missed getting this book a couple weeks ago because I was screwing around on some message board. It had one bidder.
Anyone know the title of the comic just to the right of the guy’s head?

steveinthecity: Btw, the chard was fine. Very light taste, not bitter at all. Had it mixed with spinach and romaine to use as “greens” for salads.

Stupid Team Up: By-Tor and the Snow Dog is a terrible Rush song. There, I said it.

steveinthecity: They probably have more than one. Did they make any albums after Moving Pictures?

steveinthecity: oh, there was “Roll The Bones”? I honestly cannot recall them right now.

Stupid Team Up: They did make albums after Moving Pictures because that's when I was old enough to go see them. I remember Fastway opened one of the shows.... Kinda weird choice

Stupid Team Up: I saw them on Grace Under Pressure and Power Windows

steveinthecity: All those titles ring a bell, now. I heard “Permanent Waves” album on radio, and then bought my first Rush album, which was actually the 3-disc set “Archives”. I never did see a live show. I only know Fastway from their 1st album.

Stupid Team Up: Pete Way from UFO and Fast Eddie from Motorhead... Did they have more than one album?

Stupid Team Up: The fake crowd noise is the worst... I can barely hear the announcers.

steveinthecity: I’m not getting Tampa Bay, it’s St. Louis vs 49ers. +1 on crowd noise. I forgot there was no crowd at first, then wondering why the announcers are talking so loud.

steveinthecity: Ugghh...forgot. Cardinals are Arizona, not St. Louis.
