Set Description

The Zenn-La Collection has been the center of my collecting universe for the past 6 years when I became enamoured by CGC graded comics. This collection has no intent on becoming the highest graded, but rather become the first and only Silver Surfer (Silver Age) pedigreed set. Currently, this set is one book shy of completion and 2 books short of having pedigree representations for every issue (SS #16 & 17 exception). Although pedigree books tend to have high grades and have high points associated...points have never been my drive for collecting.

I am passionate about history and each one of these pedigree books have a story that go along with them. The Zenn-La Collection has a pedigree representative from almost every Silver Age Pedigree. Collecting CGC pedigree's can be challenging and that is what drives my collecting passion...the hunt. This collection could not have been obtained without the help of many fellow board members...thanks to you all!

If your asking why Silver Surfer?...well this is how it began. My first silver age comic book was not Silver Surfer, but rather Fantastic Four 36. I was caught immediatly by the cover art & story and then began buying a few more stories. Then I stumbled upon FF48-50 the "Galactus Trilogy", and I was hooked...but not to old "chrome dome" initially, rather Galactus. As I started collecting more, I started to realize that Kirby had created a very intriguing character with the Silver Surfer. This character was powerful, sleek, intelligent and full of despair...wow!! This guy is complex and way cool. Thus, the Zenn-La Collection was born.
