  1. Past hour
  2. I think you hit the nail on the head. I'm not sure how long they've been out of the picture, though. It could be a case where they recently shopped the collection to an LCS owner a few months ago who said, "These are wonderful books, so I'm going to offer you top dollar for them—$50,000 for the whole collection," and the elderly brother accepted the offer, thinking it generous.
  3. Putting Mickey Rooney picture on comic subtitled "Short Story Comics" is blatant discrimination against vertically challenged people. That wouldn't fly today.
  4. Brought these for $900 combined from eBay. Also, I have no idea why I can't get the picture to be the right way round
  5. has a JIM 2X battle page, 121 at $19k and a non-action page from 126 @ $9k recently - would suggest your page is $20K+ as folks suggest...that said, has a large spread so you might be able to split that with the seller. Sounds like a nice find to me!

I know companies are in the business of making money but it would have said a lot about Disney’s overlords if they said, hey, the world is struggling through the pandemic, here’s Black Widow on Disney+ at no extra charge to our subscribers. If they would have done that last year. But we can’t lose a dollar now can we? I mean Disney can’t afford that. They are living check to check.
  11. I do remember your greatest hits track of "Joker's Gonna Bomb Tonight". Legendary!
  12. Maybe they really don't want any of these things. Maybe the folks in charge want the same thing that I'd serious suspect many higher ups running different things want, judging by what a bang up job they're doing; hands in the air like they really don't care.
