365 Days of Spawn!

Approximately one Spawn comic posted daily for 365 days- through the upcoming film and milestone issue #300. The majority of these issues are original owner, and as of this posting I am only missing one issue (#150) from being completely current. I will reserve Sundays for posting a Spawn spinoff or one-shot at my discretion.

Weaving the Web: Building a Complete AMAZING SPIDER-MAN Run

A noble quest to build an Amazing Spider-Man collection Hello! As my board name suggests, I am a Spider-Man fan. I have been since I was a youngster. I started actually collecting at around age 14. Pushing 40 now - Where does the time go? I basically took 7-8 years off from the hobby though, from right after high school all the way through university and didn't start really again until about 2004/05. Once I got back into the hobby, I checked out a bit of everything but I also decided to

The Crimebusters #1 - Kickstarter complete!

The Kickstarter campaign for the first issue of The Crimebusters is complete, and was a rousing success. Thanks so much to everyone who supported it! I'm really looking forward to sending out the comic and hearing what you all think. And I'm hard at work already on issue #2, so I'll certainly be sharing plenty more as we go. Thanks!

The Crimebusters #2/121 - first look

The Kickstarter has ended and I'm just waiting for the copies of The Crimebusters #1 to arrive from the printers! If anyone missed the Kickstarter and wants a copy or copies, let me know and we'll figure something out when they arrive! In the meantime, I'm keeping busy by working on #2! The second issue is called "The Secret of the Ghost Bride." It features Chuck and Trixie investigating a haunted house. With a twist: there might be some time travel involved, thanks to the surprise ret

Thus it begins ... and ends?

I have a veritable cornucopia of comics, and I've been schlepping them all over the world.   Back in June we finally settled on a place to live after a year of aimless wondering, stuff comes out of storage, comic boxes go into the basement.  Too many comic boxes.  So I think, "what's the point?"  I don't follow anything anymore, I'm never gonna go back and read em.  The ones I love I know by heart and why have ones that I don't love? So I hatched this idea to finish my X-Men run and sell A

The Crimebusters Kickstarter - final 48 hours

Hey there! We're inside the last 48 hours, so I have composed another update (well, a couple really since last time I posted here).  I also just wanted to remind everyone that may be interested that this Kickstarter is going to end shortly, so if you do think this is a comic you'd be interested in, now is the time! Most of the variant covers will be printed in very small numbers, and the Kickstarter Exclusive Variant Cover in particular (which is an homage to Flash Comics #92) is going

The Crimebusters - just 5 days left!

A little update here. In the week since we passed $1000, we've pretty much hit a full stop. I think the amount has only gone up by $26 in the last week, with just two new backers. But I had heard that's how these things go, so while it's a bit disappointing, it's not surprising. I am still occasionally getting new "followers' - these are people who have asked Kickstarter to remind them about the project when there are two days left - so it's possible some of those people will back at the end.

Set up my profile and posted about grades.

Well I set up my profile to start with. I also posted to find out to find out opinions about grading some of these books. I have The Mighty Captain Marvel Ross Variant (CGC 9.8), Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars #8 (CGC 9.4), ASM #238 (CGC 7.5), ASM #252 (CGC 9.0), and ASM #300 (CGC 8.5). However, I do have two PGX Graded Books as well. I have ASM #62 (PGX 7.0) and ASM #121 (PGX 7.5). My wife and I also want to get Feedback on our Batman Adventures #12 and her two Comic Con Variants, Gotham City

The Crimebusters #121 (2) - first peek!

I've been so focused on getting the Kickstarter up and running for the first issue of my Boy Comics revival The Crimebusters that I haven't had any time to actually begin working on the second issue. This weekend, though, I was finally able to start working on it! Here's an early look at the first draft linework for the regular cover for the second issue. I'm hoping to do the Legacy Number Variant cover soon as well, which will have the #121 on it instead of #2 - and which will be an h

Grrrr...I'm getting priced out. Think I'll collect Conan and video games

Call this a rant, if you like. Crom and Mitra, but I'm seeing stupid prices on things and it's dam irritating!  Books a little nicer than normal...books I turned my nose up on a couple of decades ago...cost as much as I'm willing to spend on a used car for my soon to be college student daughter.  I just don't know that I can enjoy tying that much money up into something that isn't really the very best and/or that I don't find captivating.  Kudos to you guys who got in early and avoided the tempt

Swamp Thing Streaming Series Canceled

June 6, 2019 It's been a long time since I posted a comment or written a journal. I've been on the sidelines watching the world of comics vicariously through the movies, TV shows, the internet, and auction houses. What brings me back is the sad and dissapointing news that the DC Universe has pulled the plug on the new Swamp Thing series after having only aired one episode. It's a head scratching decision since the show was given absolutely no chance to succeed, yet it has drawn gl

How to identify a lost Green River pedigree book!

TALES TO ASTONISH #75 Green River! Because of the ubiquitous date stamps on these books, it's possible to identify slabbed and raw books that lost their pedigree label or were never slabbed as a pedigree book from the collection. This copy of Tales to Astonish #75 is the latest addition to the worlds top Green River Collection. It was spotted on a dealers website and identified by the date stamp, (in faint red - just below the white box with the number 75) which was a dead ringer for the dat

Won this in the Comic Link auction last night. The greatest of the Neal Adams runs was GL/GA, and I could not pass up the opportunity to acquire one of these in 9.6. My winning bid was not too high, either. Enjoy.

The Crimebusters #120 (#1) - Boy Comics Variant!

Here's the final variant cover for the first issue. Of course, the whole point of this originally was to make new issues of Boy Comics, so there has to be a cover with the Boy Comics logo and numbering. And there is!       Here's a look at all four covers for this first issue. sorry for the slight blurriness, the site here automatically squeezes the image to a certain size like it or not:         Less than a week until the Kickstarter on Ju
