Set Listing    

Set Description:

Synopsis: This set is currently a little more than 80% complete with the vast majority of our books (58) 9.8s and almost all of our books highest graded examples. Moreover, 31 of our books come from Pedigree Collections, including 14 from the Pacific Coast Collection. The highlight of this set are Issues #1-4, which all come from the Pacific Coast Collection and are all highest graded examples, with #1 and #3 being single highest graded and #2 being 1 of 2. As of Winter 2022, 13 of our books are single highest graded.

Background: When I originally named this set, the only books we owned were the Giant Flashes. We later added the Giant JLAs and the Giant World’s Finests, but only as parts of other collections. It was not until my friend Mark in England decided to break up and sell his award winning set of Gorgeous Giants that we started buying additional books. We have been fortunate enough the last couple of years to pick up a number of these books, but this set still has a very long ways to go and is not one of our top priorities going forward.

The problem with collecting these books on any semblance of a budget is that the books are pretty much impossible to find until they come up all at once. Twice we could have pretty much finished this set by buying every book at an auction, but finances did not permit buying so many books at once. Moreover, since all the books fit into other sets, some like the Batmans, which are more heavily collected, are far harder to find than others. Nonetheless, if you have a book we need in high grade, let’s talk.

2022 Update: It seems that a large percentage of my friend Mark’s (Coloreman’s) Gorgeous Giants set were acquired by one collector, who decided to sell them on Heritage in late 2021. We did not get them all by any means, but we were able to jumpstart this set with a couple of dozen high-grade books. We have also started to just fill some slots rather than waiting for highest-graded examples to come on the market. Still, this set has a very long ways to go and completion certainly does not appear imminent. Nevertheless, finishing it has become a little higher priority than it was before, but many of the missing issues remain difficult to find, at least in 9.6/9.8.
