Holy cow! Uh...what is Alf doing to that poor seal? Is this a kids book or a Furry's fantasy? I, I feel like I need to stick a sharpened spoon into my eyes to get rid of that image.



I am proud to Announce that I now have 500+ Hero Ratings!!! Thanks to all of my Amazing Customers! Big things are in store for Hall of Heroes this year. It is my personal goal to add a long box a week to my Inventory starting in April, 2014.

Well, dirty minds think dirty thoughts. Not that it's not suggestive, though.

I'd say he's trying to hold on to a slippery seal, while he's telling someone off-panel to hurry up (for whatever reason he's holding the seal for, but that's the hook on this cover, you have to buy it to find out).

It doesn't matter if it's 50 Cents or 50 Dollars - if you list it as NM it better be NM.

As if the seal thing weren't enough, he's also doing some Michael Jackson-style baby dangling in the top left corner:

It all depends on how you interpret it. Your never know what was and wasn't appropriate for the code.

I wear a mask. And that mask, it's not to hide who I am, but to create what I am.

Cover says "do no buy if safety seal is missing". So Alf is holding onto the safety seal, and he's telling us to "hurry up, already" and buy it before the seal gets away.

By the way, the issue gets it's special line-item listing in Overstreet because of the risqué cover, and books out at $12 (as of two years ago, anyway).

Oh, yeah. Pretty obvious there, now.

I might be misinterpreting ComicReaderBatman's point, here, but it seems worth pointing out that this panel is from one of the issues of Amazing Spider-Man famously DISapproved by the Comics Code Authority (which was, after all, merely enforcing rules drawn up by the publishers themselves). Also seems worth noting that the disapproved storyline was reprinted WITH Authority approval in Marvel Tales 191 (Sept. 1986), years after the publishers revised the Code to permit mention of drugs.

OK, mystery solved. Now how do you explain this?
