About this journal
I have not written a journal since before the format change. I had the two password issue. I wish things were not changed but I will attempt to use it. I quoted Ultron in my title as I finally completed my Voyage to The Bottom of the Sea set. I have been searching for years for a high grade copy of Four Color 1230 which was the movie comic and first issue of the title. Metropolis had a 7.0 raw about five years ago but it looked like a 6.0 at best and I didn't buy it. A few months back a 6.0 CGC came up and I really wanted to get the big 100% so I bought it.
It is the best I can do . The search will continue and someday I might find a better copy. A 7.5 White Mountain copy is the best CGC copy out there and has been for years. I did pick up a somewhat scarce Buck Rogers in The 25 TH Century #8 CGC 9.0 recently which was distributed in multi-packs only. My best find from the Gem City Comic Con in April was a raw Thor 126 which I got for $150.00.( It graded 8.0 off-white to white} I found it in the first five minutes of the early buyer part of the show and thought I'm off to a great start but everything was downhill from there. Upgraded my Journey into Mystery 121 with a 9.4 recently. The recent Comiclink auction had many books I wanted but my Arizona vacation and prior comic buying did not allow me to bid on only a few of them. I did win the Space Family Robinson #9 Double cover I wanted though. Still waiting on them to be added to my set. Still hoping my old journals will show up soon , not sure what the status is on those. I hope they aren't lost in space.
