Won this just now in the Comic Link auction. A book that has jumped up in registry points recently - 750, to be exact. Don't know if the character will be appearing again in the movies. I'm just happy to have all those points. I had a CGC 9.4 up until three years ago, then sold it. That one had crm/ow pages, so I've managed an upgrade here. Got it for under $400 too. Enjoy.
A few years back Sharonville sold a copy of this book on the boards and I fell in love withheld perspective of the cover shot, and the fact t thatched book was pre-assembled involvement in WWII (1940). So here we go another genre, another deviation from my "focus" Sky Blazers #2!
Gold Key Comics - UK Price Variants
Here is a summary of the Gold Key UK Price Variants that I have discovered hiding between the dates of March 1973 and November 1975. If you'd like to know more about them, please click the picture below and you'll be magically transported to the discussion thread in which we talk about them:
Meanwhile, here is an up to date summary of what I have discovered so far, which I hope you will find interesting.
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 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.
oh my gosh im like all bamboozled with all these different types of comics and wow your silly to pay enormous amounts of cash to take that really good comic home with you. get a grip its only comics! only joking with you 😜 no really enjoying going through stacks of comics ive recently discovered in my loft. Ive posted a few images of my favourites so far, i need to categorise them quick before it gets all mushed up in my head, advice welcomed on were to start apart from obvious marvel in one pi
As I was saying in my last entry, I was longing for my first Alex Schomburg war cover. It came by way of the boards from a member who was willing to work with my on time payments in July of 2016. I present to you Captain America Comics #33!!
As you can see, this book has been restored (via a piece re-attached to cover with glue) and has a detached cover. These are two characteristics I said I was going to stay away from except for the more expensive issues. I would consi
hello thought id tell you were i found my next lot of comics, i found it in the very last place in the loft i was clearing out the comics were inside a deteriorated old carrier bag underneath the loft door i was about to climb down from the loft when that was when i saw them.
Look at this last lot of treasure i found by chance. not quite the holy grail but very nearly.
So after about 2 ½ hours at the local courthouse yesterday, I got my 3 point traffic citation reduced to a zero point infraction for impeding traffic. The actual fine went up $30, but I'd gladly pay that to avoid the higher insurance rates associated with a 3 point ticket. Especially considering the fact that my wife and I just bought a new car last week!
Here's Superman impeding traffic, from Superman #85 from 1953.
This is another book from one of my LCS' monthly auctions. I
I won 2 Bakers this week on eBay. I'm especially happy with Midget Comics #1. It's offered so infrequently I went all in with a max bid of $100 -- and then it closed at only $8! I paid a bit more for Crown Comics #6, although it likely went lower because of its PGX grading rather than CGC.
I have 858 CGC books. Actually, that's 858 in my registry sets. If you also count the ones not in my sets, I'm probably well over 900.
One thing about slabs, they take up a lot of room. I have 12 CGC boxes so I store many of my slabs there. I store the rest on shelves in my comic room.
In my old comic room, I displayed CGC books on wire shelves, somewhat like dealer walls at cons. Below are a couple pictures from my old comic room. These wire shelves did a good job at displaying
Whew!!! Time to take a break from comic buying before I bankrupt myself. No more books until 2018. All in all, I had one of my best years ever for acquisitions. Maybe the best. I raised my total registry points from 64,000 to 77,000. Speaking of points, this one is worth an impressive 850. Fourth appearance of the new X-Men. I'll get back to the journals next year. Enjoy.
Wow, last month I found out that my little niche set of 33 DC Bicentennial comics was awarded one of the Best Bronze Age sets for 2018, a very nice recognition I must say Mahalo nui loa (thank you very much) to CGC!
And, even sweeter, I just picked up a replacement for one of the issues in the set - going from a CGC 9.0 WP to CGC 9.8 WP and gaining 98 more points! Although it's unlikely I could ever make a complete set of all 9.8 WP issues, I'm hoping to at least upgrade all the 9.0 and 9
I have set up a little comic shop here on the boards. I know selling in the galleries is *not a thing* yet, but I thought I'd give it a try.
I plan to keep about 50-100 books listed here, and will update regularly.
At least, that's the plan.
Anyway, check it out.
So i got my first birthday book as a gift this year. Blade Runner #1 (October 1982).
I think next year, Wolverine would make a great birthday book.
Any other October 1982 books to look out for? Feel free to share your b-day books as well, always nice to see.
A nice pickup here from ebay. One of my favorites of Frank Frazetta's many Warren covers. Tough to find in the higher grades slabbed and when one does turn up, the price is usually quite steep. Fortunately, my best offer to the seller on ebay was accepted and I didn't have to pay an arm and a leg. Enjoy.
SHAPING UP AND CREATING MY COMIC BOOK ROOM
This year I think I will start cleaning up my books and think up what I want to put in the room. Too many stuff I have in boxes, and they need be placed in good display. Thinking to buy metal shelves to put all my short boxes stacked up to free up space. It might take me a year or so to get the room as what I have in mind.
I had just started my special sketch project at FEV. I gave a blank comic book page (the kind of paper comic book artists
