CGC Label Error

I just bought Spider-Gwen #5 CGC#1594823016 signed by Stan Lee; the Aja Variant Cover. The label says Stan Lee signed the comic on 11/28/2018—that’s an improbability. Today’s date (as of this writing) is 8/15/2018. Did a mysterious benefactor traveled into the future and have Stan Lee autograph the comic? Doubt it. The obvious answer is, he signed the comic in “January” instead of “November” of 2018. CGC must’ve accidentally hit “11” instead of just “1” for the month. Does an error like thi

One Man Comic Business

You too can start a comic business! Basic Journal to note my experiences buying and selling comics. Your mileage may vary if you replicate or emulate any of my experiences. But the enjoyment I've gotten out of this hobby and how I've approached it is something I thought I'd share. First, a little background. I collected back issues in the mid 1980s mostly in the Boston area spending my paper route money on 1960s Spidermans and 1970s Xmen. I won't bore you with those details but formative

Hulk vs. Glob

Won this in the recent Comic Link auction. The Glob was a character you could call a precursor to the Swamp and Man-Things, I suppose. Don't see this book turn up on the market very often. Had this issue when I was a youngster along with several other Herb Trimpe Hulks from that era. Enjoy.

Another update!

Man, the updates are coming fast and furious! I've just finished setting up a new mailing list entry portal, and I wanted to share it with everyone here. I just send out one email a month to give updates on The Crimebusters - a little more often when it's actually time for a new issue - so if you're interested, it's a great way to get the direct scoop. Anyone who signs up now will get a welcome email that includes a link to a new digital ashcan which has short previews for both issues 1 and

The Crimebusters #2 - Boy Comics #121 Variant Cover question

First, thanks to everyone who supported the first issue of The Crimebusters and helped make it a reality. I'm super grateful! I'm currently hard at work on the second issue, and one thing I'm trying to figure out it what to do for the Boy Comics #121 variant.  I've got two basic options - I could do an all-new original design, or I could do another homage cover. I think a lot of people really liked the homage to Captain America Comics #3, so I am leaning towards doing another homa

The Death and Return of Superman Collector's Editions

The Death and Return of Superman saga is so 90s, and also credited with the beginning of the publishing gluttony that paved the way for the market crash later in the decade. One such 90s thing about this set is the number of "Collector's Editions" released. I have most of these and enjoy them, but it has been frustrating finding them graded. These editions crowed just about every comic shop in America but I never see any raw 9.8 candidates. Most of the graded examples are also listed with high B

The Crimebusters - con report!

I attended my first convention as an artist over the weekend, so I wrote up a little thing about the experience here, including a short video diary about the con and the comics I ended up bringing home myself:crimebustercomics.com/2019/09/16/catamount-comic-expo-convention-report/

Frazetta Greatness

One Of Many Covers Picked this up at one of my LCS. Always been a fan of Frank Frazetta and this cover has to rank as one of the best. Would have preferred a higher grade, still, this one presents the appearance of a 9.0. I will be posting more journals with some other Warren mags with his cover art when I acquire them. Enjoy.

Frazetta Greatness V

Won this in the Heritage auction last night. The last of the Warren magazines with Frank Frazetta cover work that I wanted. Probably one of the toughest to find in high grade too. And it also features interior artwork by Neal Adams. Enjoy.
