Multiple stories in each, most have various combinations of Dick Dastardly & Muttley, Penelope Pitstop, It's The Wolf, Cattanooga Cats, and MotorMouse & AutoCat.

These are half guide or less already, and save another 30% if you buy all 8:
#1, Fine 6.0, but looks better. Lightly tan pages. Mostly 10-12 little 1-2mm spine marks; smattering of a few very light reading kinks; a 4" light indent line in bottom right running diagonally below propeller down through Penelope's chest/neck; a 2.5" very light bend running diagonally from the 'TL' in Muttley, to above the salt shaker to edge; light valley 'line' near the spine in most of the yellow part of cover. No wrinkling in any of those bends, the one near spine is most noticeable in person. Little tanning spot at bottom spine corner on back, about 5/16" high, 1/16"-1/8" wide, not foxing or water stain, just a tanning area. Slightly miscut near bottom spine, you'll see it hooks down a little. Possible tiny bits of rust on staples if seen under magnifying glass...$10 (View)
#2, VF- 7.5. Nice copy except for the 1/2" corner crease in top right; 3-4 little 1/16" or so spine stress marks, slight tear at top staple; very light indent line running along length of spine, about 1/2" in, nothing to write home about...$9 (View)

#5, F/VF 7.0. Main things are a dent/bend in top right corner, about 1" across, 1/4" in, not creased, but has hump-bend line; 3/4" valley bend/spine kink at top staple, about 5 other 1/8" spine stresses; top spine corner has slight indent ding, couple little stresses; a very few light reading kinks...$8.25 (View)
#6, oh, F/VF 7.0, most would probably say VF-. Top edge near spine corner has a 1" horizontal kink depression that goes through the book, so has hump line on back cover there too; Above the 'N' there's a slight pinch/kink spot that goes through the book, it's bit heavier on the back cover; Gold Key box has a 1" vertical light indent line with a 5/8" thin white line to it, barely shows in scan; slight impact ding at tip, shows more on back; 1/8" spine stress mark, plus only a couple 1/16" ones along spine; few light reading kinks/small waves in Dastardly; light blue squiggles you see in Dastardly are how it was printed, maybe some junk on the plate...$8.25 (View)
#7, VF- 7.5. In Gold Key box at tip and through little "Fun-In" title, there's curved bend line about 1.5" total, but only 3/4" of it has the deeper kink, and goes through the book, has little 1/16" tear top edge there too; nearer right corner there's a light semi-circular impact wave bend, couple waves to it, goes through the book, but pretty light on front, little heavier on back cover; some thin white scratches below Autocat on plane body, another in his shoulder/exhaust cloud; nice spine, only 2-3 light wrinkle stresses or kinks 1/8" or less; bottom spine corner has the 'tick' piece missing; 2" thin printing crease on back cover near bottom of ad...$10 (View)
#13, VF- 7.5. The Hair Bear Bunch story. Whitman version. Like #7, it has nearly the same 1.25" bend/kink/thumbed spot at top corner, but much lighter, with light 3/4" white hair thin line in Whitman box from it; 1/4" corner crease lower right; a dozen or so worthless little spine dings, most don't show in the white background, a couple show in the green part...$8 (View)

Hero Alliance: "End of the Golden Age" graphic novel. VF/NM, 1986, 1st print, Pied Piper Press. Early Ron Lim art! I really liked the comic book series (don't have any left besides this), and the graphic novel is a very good Super Hero story you'll enjoy. 46 pages. Cover has 3 vertical vein lines in upper part − 2 are about 1/2", one is 3/16". Non-color breaking though. Also has about 5 little white streaks starting below N in title and in guy's ribs & arm, but these are printing defects, not paper flakes. Cover price is $6.95, yours for 50% off...$3.50 (View)
