Copper Age Gray Hulk Set COMPLETE!

"They Call Me Mr. Fixit" - Issues #324-379 A little more than a year ago, I set out to get CGC 9.8 copies of Incredible Hulk issues 324-379. (All issues in the series with the Gray Hulk) I am pleased to announce that with the help of RockMyAmadeus, I now have the last two issues I needed. (#343 and #369) If you get a chance, go check out the set in the registry, with scans and descriptions - "They Call me Mr. Fixit" To see old comments for this Journal entry, click here.

It Never Hurts to Ask, but...

A simple yes or no would have been enough So, I was browsing some members' registry sets and saw a collection that had a book I wouldn't have minded added to my collection, so I messaged the owner and asked them if they might be interested in selling the book. It never hurts to ask, right? Instead, I get some long winded response about how this book has sentimental value to the collector (which is fine), yet they would be willing to part with it for 80% more than what the last recorded sale of a similar book was. Or if I was willing to trade from a handful of 9.8's they were looking for. Trade one of my 9.8s worth twice as much for your 9.6...no thank you. Then they close the response with what seemed to me like a lecture on how collecting is not easy and patience is a virtue. So, I've learned my lesson, no more contacting board members. Dude, a simple yes or no would have been enough. To see old comments for this Journal entry, click here. New comments can be added below.

Grey Hulk (Mr. Fixit) vs Wolverine

Original Art by Jerry deCaire Jerry deCaire came to my school a couple weeks ago to do his presentation to the students about how mathematics applies to comic art. He also did a bunch of drawings for them. Being a big comic geek, I spent some time with him talking about the trade and expressed my interest in him doing a drawing for me to frame in my office. He took my ideas of a fight between Mr. Fixit and Wolverine with him and today, his artwork arrived. I am very pleased.

Incredible Hulk #6 (1962) CGC 3.0

Last Issue of 1962 Series I got a cool bonus at work this year in the form of a Visa gift card. So, I bought this guy. GD/VG condition with OW/W pages and Steve Ditko cover and interior art. I now have 5/6. Until a decently-priced #5 in 4.0 - 3.0 condition comes along...
