The good thing, Cyberstrike...is that there currently ARE plans to reprint the original issues! Plus, fleabay will yield good Atlas crops...just requires patience...
I refuse to use eBay because they are forcing buyers and sellers to ONLY use paypal. I don't want to use paypal, I perfer to use money orders. I lost all respect and trust in eBay the second that eBay sent me a message that if me and a seller agreed to use a money order they could sue both of us! I have been thinking of starting a classic Atlas collection through online message boards like this one or Valiantfans (I could also try Seibertron.com a Transformers
fansite but they are more Transformers
related stuff but they tie a lot details to eBay) , but I have a lot of other hobbies that also required my attention.
Now that are plans for reprints (or TPBs/HC) I'll wait to see how they do that.
I would love to get copies of the B&W magazines though.
