These miniature comics are from 1966, and only 5/8"x7/8" (view next to a penny), and are known as the world's smallest comics. (Listed in Overstreet in the Promotional comics section under Marvel Mini-books.) Neat pieces of Marvel memorabilia. They were distributed in gumball machines, and they made 6 titles in 6 colors: Captain America, Incredible Hulk, Millie the Model, Sgt. Nick Fury, Spider-Man, and Thor, in red, orange, blue, green, light green/lime, and yellow covers. About 50 pages, black & white, usually with an illustration on one page and text on the facing page (view a Hulk page). Some have stories (usually reprinted material from what I've read), and some are joke books. Insides are all the same per title, only the cover colors change. They have a glued binding, and many other's copies have dried out and are very fragile, but mine are all in good shape, but I'd be very wary about trying to read them anyway. Mine were not out of gumball machines, they were unused overstock, and most are in very nice shape, but quality varies, especially with the back covers. The pics are several times larger than the actual books, so the defects will look way bigger too, but in person most of the defects are tiny.
They supposedly made millions of them, and they're not as rare now as once believed, so don't believe that 'rare' hype you'll see elsewhere. Most all of mine have some edge flaking, this is very common. These are all I have left now:
Captain America, green, say VG/F 5.0, has some little scuffs/wear on front and edge flaking...$6.50 (View)
- Incredible Hulk:
- Blue VF 8.0, mostly edge wear/flaking...$10.50
- Red VG+ 4.5, couple vertical white scratches on front cover, tiny white spots/flakes, could be printing defects; light edge wear front & back as usual...$6.50 (View both)
Marvel Super-Heroes Vol. 1, 1968 run:
#15 F/VF 7.0 to VF- 7.5, white pages. All new Medusa (of the Inhumans) story, by Archie Goodwin, art by Gene Colan, plus reprints. Medusa vs. the Trapster, Sandman and the Wizard. Nice copy, and it has the "normal" printing spots all over the cover from them stacking them before ink was dry, which most of this issue's print run had. They show some in the scan as the pinkish spots in the title, but show more in person. Main defect is a vertical 1.5" upward bend ridge near right edge, about 3" up from the bottom. No color break, and doesn't show in the scan, but noticeable in person; minor little kink spot at bottom left edge in Medusa's foot; top right corner has faint 1/2" mostly vertical bend to it, hardly noticeable; 3-4 worthless short stress marks on spine in the white border, they show more on the flat edge; decently square spine, and cover is otherwise smooth, edges are clean; back cover has some usual transfer "dirt", not bad...$24 (View)
#19 F/VF- 7.0 or so, off-white pages, with a couple "buts". All new Kazar story, George Tuska art, plus Golden Age reprints. Nice overall, but has a blue pen streak near top edge just off the Marvel box. It's about 7/8" total, but only 1/2" really shows, rest trails off; down the spine edge about 1/4", there's a 1/4" split, don't know how that happens. Above the split there's no tear, but cover isn't glued to pages there. Split doesn't show unless you open it and look inside, otherwise all you see is a fuzzy line. Lower right corner has 1/4" and 1/16" creases; top right corner has faint 3/16" bend from tip ding, also on back corner, ding shows on most page tips; 3/8" thumbed stress line midpoint bottom edge; little chip/tick off bottom spine edge. Clean, nice color. Priced below guide Fine...$10 (View)

Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D./SHIELD, 1968 series:
#3 VG/F 5.0, off-white pages. Steranko cover & story. Looks better than grade, main defect is a 1" corner crease upper right; about 7 very thin 2-4mm spine stresses, hardly detract; fuzz at bottom spine corner; 1/16" tip crease bottom right; and found 2 water/moisture spots on cover—one 3/16"L x 1/8"H in R in Fury, shows as dull spot, but inside there's a stain spot; other lighter dull spot in E in SHIELD title, about 1/2"L x 3/16"H, has scattered little dull spots spreading off of it; a few little ones in Marvel box above Fury. You don't see the spots unless glinted or you're told where they are. And a water stain that shows on inside front cover on bottom edge near spine—two spots, bigger one is 3/4" wide, about 3/8" high at highest point, and a 1/4" one above it. Doesn't show on front due to green grass color, and is not all fuzzy or browned like bad stains, but has discoloration. Only affects the inside cover, not interior pages. Otherwise nice glossy cover, nice edges. Back cover is clean and nice...$12 (View 580px wide, 157kb) (View 900px wide, 332kb) (View back)
#6 Fine+ 6.5, off-white/white pages. Steranko cover. Five or six 3-4mm very thin spine stress lines, not kinked. 2 odd other wrinkle/stress lines are what cut down the grade: One curls down from top edge above Fury title to D in S.H.I.E.L.D., so about 2.5" long, but very thin, only the 1" part above Fury shows super thin white crack line, rest trails off, but you can see the slight indent/bend to it when glinted; other one runs vertical near spine edge, about 3.5" long, very thin; top right corner has some thin/very light stress lines too, no bends; Marvel box has a super light/thin vertical print crease running through Fury, can see it better on inside, almost invisible on outside; couple very minor thumbed edge stresses along top, barely noticeable; bottom spine corner has little impact ding and light 1/8" stress/crease. About 5 middle pages have 2-3" printing creases across top right corner, and last couple pages have a couple 3"+ dips/bends from printer too. Nice clean off-white back cover...$25 (View 580px wide, 161kb) (View 900px wide, 259kb) (View back)
#7 Fine- 5.5, off-white pages. Steranko cover. Top right corner has thin 1" corner crease, light bend to it, and it goes through the book, with 3/4" crease on back cover corner; stress fractures along top edge overhang; 5 or so spine kinks, most very mild, one at bottom is worst, with thin dip extending about 1/2" in; couple 3/16" stress marks too, 3-4 other short ones, most hide well in the art. Back cover shows some very light indent lines near bottom spine corner, 1/4 to 1/2"; two dull spots in ad that look like thumb prints when glinted, can't see otherwise...$15 (View 580 px wide, 155kb) (View 900px wide, 333kb) (View back)
#10 VF 8.0, off-white/white pages. Christmas story, hence the cover art. Very nice at first glance, little niggling things keep it from VF+. About 7 very thin 2-3mm spine stresses/fractures, no kinks; slight abrasion along bottom edge; some pin-tip size indents in the red ornament, most at bottom, one near top; light color rub/scuff spot in bad guy's eye (right one looking at it), another very minor scuff in ornament neck; 3/8" light print crease in Fury's ornament near bottom. Back cover is clean, off-white, has a 1/8" little layer peel/scuff spot near open edge...$20 (View 580px wide, 145kb) (View 900px wide, 286kb) (View back)
#13 VG/Fine 5.0, off-white pages. Versus the Super Patriot. Mostly it's spine kinks/stresses, plus a 1/2"w x 3/4"h very light moisture stain in top of flag stripes, not solid, no waviness or fuzz, easy to overlook. Has about a dozen various stress marks, half are 1/8", others are shorter and hard to see in the yellow part, but have mild kinks to them too, a couple valleys extend 1/4" to 1/2" into cover, but shallow. 1/4" dip/kink at .12 price is heaviest one. Top right corner has very light writing imprint of price, covers about 3/4"x3/4" above and into Comics Code box, shows when glinted. 1.5" thin horizontal printing wrinkle at Super Patriot's right foot, another lighter 1" vertical one in gun shadow on flag; little abrasion at bottom spine corner and some along bottom edge; few light reading kinks bottom area. Nice back cover, bottom spine corner shows minor ding...$8 (View 580px wide, 143kb) (View 900px wide, 269kb) (View back)
#15 F/VF- 7.0, off-white/white pages. First appearance of AN assassin named "Bulls-Eye," but NOT the same one from Daredevil later (Bullseye), this was this guy's first and last appearance, but still high priced in guides. NOT a 'key issue' at all, why do people still say it is? Little fuzzy/rub at top spine tip with the little tick piece there; in Marvel box, there's two little white rub dots right next to black edge across from Fury's shoulder, 3-4 really thin 3mm stress lines/wrinkles, another at top staple; at bottom of top staple, you can see one of those "<" shaped kinks going out 1/2" from it when you glint it, but very very light and shallow, and bottom staple hole has 1/16" tear, melds well so hard to see. Rest of spine is nice, but has very shallow valley the length of it, nothing I count off for though; bottom edge has very slight abrasion along most of it, worst part is near spine where it has the most minor of curl/mush to it, about 3/4" long; open edge has about a 2" section near bottom of white edge abrasions, but broken up. Back: upper left corner area of back cover got bent a little long ago, leaving a couple/3 very light wrinkle lines. Worst one is about an inch down, across corner, maybe 2.5", oh so slightly raised, only about 1.25" of it is noticeable. Inside cover, the ad shows white stress in the black part of that wrinkle. Other wrinkle lines are above it, longest is 3.5" if you count the last part as the same line, which it may not be; another very faint one above that is about 1" long. Can e-mail large scan of back. Pic of back corner has been darkened a bit to show the bends better...$32 (View 580px wide, 171kb) (View 900px wide, 366kb) (View back) (View close-up of top corner)

Pro Action magazine #1, 1994. A collaborative effort from Marvel Comics and NFL Properties, "Where Pro football, comics, and pop culture collide," this 48 page mag has features on NFL stuff, and Marvel stuff. Has Troy Aikman cover and article, with Wolverine slashing "through" it. The 2 neat features it has are an original Uncanny X-Men comic book bound in, with a Wolverine cover. 16 page story featuring Callisto and the Morlocks, ("My Enemy, My Friend," by Ralph Macchio and Chris Marrinin), and two 4-card sheets of high quality trading cards: One sheet has Cyclops, Storm, Gambit, and Wolverine, other sheet has NFL Quarterbacks Randall Cunningham (Eagles), Steve Young (49ers), Phil Simms (Giants), and Warren Moon (Oilers). Also articles on rookie 49ers player Todd Kelley, interview with coach Dave Shula (Don Shula's son), Junior Seau's workout routine, and more. I have several, VF/NM, VF, VF- and one in VG+, due to it's back cover getting several creases, and some spine wear on the front, but insides are ok. The defects on the others are just a few spine kinks of various sizes. $2.95 cover. This should be a lot more valuable by now, due to the original comic and exclusive cards, and I didn't find very many for sale now on the net, but seems there's not a lot of demand for it still:
