Boy Comics 30, home to Crimebuster. This comic includes the Crimebuster, Hero of the Month, Swoop Storm, Yankee Langongo,and Young Robin Hood story all in it's pages. There are two Crimebuster stories both of them being written and drawn by Charles Biro. There is also a George Tuska story inside. This comic is notable for a few things. First it is the retelling of Crimebusters origins, Crimebuster, along with Daredevil and Airboy had become Lev Gleasons most popular characters. This is also a pre code comic, and feature more violence than usual. This includes a cover that depict a slashed throat victim with extensive blood, and the mentions Tuska story which features a teen on fire, fairly graphically.
This book is in FR/GD (1.5), and is a pretty gorgeous almost 70 year old comic. It does have some condition issue, but nothing super extreme. First the cover is a one staple cover and is missing the part of the cover that would of been held to the staple. Someone a long time ago had tape the cover back into the book from the inside You can see slight discoloration to the front cover, and darker ones on the back where the acid from the tape has effected the cover. The tape is EXTREMELY old. There is also an Abrasion on the upper cover front. The only other issues with the cover are, some soling, some small tears along the edge (there are 6 the longest is a .25"), and two on the back cover. There is also writing on pen on the front cover. The gloss and color of the cover is gorgeous, and has very little loss of either one. The interior pages of this book are breath taking they are mostly white, with a little off white and supple. Comic is complete, all page firmly attached.

I have been grading comics for 20+ years. I grade them based on industry standard grading criteria. I also understand grading can be subjective. If you have a issue with anything I have graded, please contact me, I guarantee my condition grades, and yes, even I miss things on occasion.
There are a lot of sellers out there who have no clue how to grade, and won't stand behind their grades like I do. IF there is a descrepancy between my grade and what you get sent, contact me. I 100% guarantee my products.
I will consider all REASONABLE offers. That being said, some items are more open to offers than others.
I ship all items, next USPS business day, 99% of the time. The only exception would be for extreme weather circumstances, or I am away at a Comic Con. If you need me to ship on a different day, please contact me.
Item prices do not include Import Taxes, VAT, Customs Fees or specific Country fees. Because all Countries import laws are different, it is left up to the buyer to know what their own Customs laws and fees are, and to pay them accordingly.
Additionally, if you arrange different shipping method than my standard shipping method of the US Post Office there could be fees added upon delivery of the item, which are also the responsibility of the purchaser.
Massachusetts Customers: Sales Taxe does apply to MA customers purchasing from my shop. You are in luck though, comic books are not taxed by the State of Massachusetts. Any other item I sell that sales taxes apply too? I eat sales tax

At check out you will have a choice of how to ship, based on what you are shipping and it's size/weight. Media Mail shipping is only available for books and records. It is against postal regulations to ship comic books media mail. I am willing to research other shipping options based on request.
Yes, I have approximately 20,000 in storage, all eras. Because of the way Etsy fees work, it is not worth my time to post comics under $4 here. But you can contact me with requests, and I can set up special orders via Etsy for that. I especially have long runs of Late Bronze to Copper Age Comics (1980 to the late 1980's)
I determine my prices based on what comics have been selling for for that past 6 months. I mainly use a combination the Comic GPA Analysis (http://comics.gpanalysis.com) and Comicsrealm.com for a price guide but I also monitor sales and auctions at sites dedicated to selling comic books.
I review my prices every business quarter and make price adjustments (up or down) accordingly.
Yes, I am willing to do local pick-up/delivery. Delivery could have a extra charge, I am willing to deliver in the Southeastern MA and Providence RI area. Please contact us prior to purchase if you are interested in this.
Yes, unlike a lot of sites, we do high quality cover scans of every comic we have for sale, and DO NOT touch them up in photoshop nor change their size. This allows you see most of the condition issues (If you hit "ZOOM" under the pic, you will get a blow up of the image) and get the true color of the comic. We only scan the front and back covers, because generally that is where most of the condition issues with a comic are. I some cases, if there are interior issues, we will photo those issues.
As always, if you want extra images of a comic, just ask. As a reminder, colors can be seen slightly different between different monitors and mobile devices.
