Stan's

The Red Skull So I finally found my 1st SA appearance of the Red Skull, and I am not disappointed with the condition, maybe a seven. So I guess I have selected the book I want Stan's sig on.

The Greatness of Eight-Ness!

Whaaaaat? I swear I am not trying to copy Tnerb on this list in any way. It just seems like we are generally having the same ideas so far when it comes to the Ages in the bottom three of our lists. He has a Modern Age, a Copper Age and a Silver Age. Ditto here, as made true by my #8... Little Dots Uncles and Aunts #2 9.6 I have a number of Silver Age Harveys, but if I had to part with all but one, this would be the one I would have to keep. It came down to either this one or my Tracy #1

132

or 131...? So I'm now 4+ years into building and slabbing the go-go check collection. And I still love my focus - there's something for me in every genre - from funny animal to superhero to western, and in every price range from inexpensive to hard on my pocketbook expensive. The thing is: now I have reached a milestone - the next book I buy or slab for the collection will represent 25% completion, 132 of 531 books. What I am wondering is this: should I try to cross my milestone with a

The Saga hits a snag

Thoughts on how we look at the grades we get and why . . . Unless you are a grading genius and have better than 20/20 vision, a magnifying glass, bright lights in your back pocket and assorted other tools of the trade wherever you go, you are in the same boat as me and, I am sure, countless other CGC submitters: you suffer from the soul crushing experience of total and utter comic overgrading. Well, maybe not soul crushing, but disappointing. Yes, I thought I would have a few 9.6s, and ev

Why not?

Since I'm here... So I just "happen" to be in town. Decided to take the family to Disneyland for the weekend. What's that, WonderCon is happening? Well, sure as long as I'm here I really would like to go (wink)! I'll let you know if I find any must haves for the collection. To see old comments for this Journal entry, click here.

This has been another thrilling adventure of Superman!

I may not be the biggest Man of Steel fan or collector (I give that nod to Brandon Shepherd and others), and I definitely haven't read every adventure of the Caped Wonder, but I am a big fan nonetheless. When I was a child, Superman was the one superhero I wanted to be. What Superman stands for: purity, morality, strength, and order, which symbolically stands defiant in our often troubled, turbulent, and chaotic world. Superman never bends to the will of evil, nor does he sacrifice his m

Prez

I'm going to be staying on Joe Simon for one more day. Yesterday I said that I really enjoyed the awesome weirdness of Brother Power the Geek but I can't say the same about Prez. You would expect a comic like Brother Power to be surreal but I wasn't expecting Prez to be even stranger. Prez Rickard ends up benefiting from a new Constitutional Amendment that dramatically lowers the age of presidential eligibility by becoming the first teenage president of the United States. There is a whole l

or Don't know what to expect For a few weeks I had an invoice with three books marked received, once I saw them change to verified I checked what books they had. Two on that invoice were Marvel Team Up #100 and Sandman #14. These are two I took to the ECCC to get signatures on. The Marvel Team Up was an acquisition and the Sandman was a book I was doing my best to get caught up on since I started late in the series with #32. The third book however was a copy of Daredevil #9. I wanted this bo

R.I.P. Stan Lee

I know right, I was just as surprised as you I was looking at the AP website and saw where Stan " The Man " actually died in April 1992 after reading a copy of Youngblood #1 at a signing event. The exact cause of death was unknown but its believed that he suffered tremendously as his face remained transfixed in a rather pained expression. Initially it was ruled a homicide but a subsequent investigation was dropped and there had been lingering speculation in the industry that it may have in f
