  1. I was the boardie that ended up with the book. Was a sucky time for all. Nearmint was kind enough to let me have the book with no hard feelings. Anyway I sent pics of the book to a reputable conservatinist to see if it could be unrestored and the verdict was 'no' as the cover was cleaned. So I'm really surprised (and happy !) To see the book in a blue label and in such a great grade. Beautiful book . Nice to see it reappear. Congrats to the owner for having the guts and initiative to even think of unrestoring it.
  2. I dont quite agree that her death was lightly addressed in the movie. They had several scenes building up to her death e.g. scenes between cap and her talking about family and between Clint and her , reflecting on their long history. And she was no token anything. She was the defacto boss having even capt marvel updating her. Even after her death, there were several scenes remembering her. I always wondered how they would write her in from the early days as she had no superpowers but think they did an amazing job in fleshing out her character. Some may have felt her death more strongly than that of tony
  3. Think also another reason would be Bucky's past as the winter soldier. Though he was brainwashed, he still had blood on his hands. And for the public at large who wouldn't have all the facts, he wouldn't be the right candidate to take over the mantle. They did give him an homage by having Bucky nod his approval when Sam looked at him before accepting the shield.
  4. Agree with Bosco, dont think Clint sacrificed anyone. Not trying to be a spoon here but Thanos sacrificing Gamora was for me the best scene in infinity war. In endgame, it was easier for them to sacrifice themselves than each other. Once again, just being an here. It didnt mar the movie whatsoever.
  5. Am curious. If u needed to sacrifice someone u loved to get the soul stone, and Thanos sacrificed Gamora to get it, then in the case of Hawkeye and Black Widow, he didnt really sacrifice her. In fact both of them were sacrificing themselves for the other. Does that count ?
  6. In that case I would recommend that you skip the pre screen and just submit the book for grading since you want it graded regardless of the grade or designation. Side note, I didn't know that you could pre screen just one book . Thot it required at least 25 books minimum.
  7. It's part of their aml (anti money laundering ) measures. Govt agencies may query them on a person's ID when looking into suspicious transactions. It's legit. Just make sure all communication is done with PayPal ( as in official email )
  8. David mack also drew some art which was used in Jessica Jones season 2. Appeared in a few episodes. It was unmistakable. I watched the credits for his name and it was there. Wonder if it will come up for sale.
  9. I don't think what syaf did was right by any stretch of the imagination I.e., inserting his religious views into the book. Having said that, we have to take a step back and look at what he actually did. He put references to a march in indonesia and quoted a reference to the quran. The specific reference being that muslims should not be led by non-muslims specifically jews and Christians alike. Is that anti Semitic or just plain cold logic ? Think the verse also means any religion that is not Muslim. Would the fact that a political office nominee having a different faith affect your views on voting for him ? If that's hate speech, then it's Ardian quoting from a book which can be easily purchased in the US. I remember when Obama's citizenship and religion was an issue. Granted it was right that action be taken against ardian but an anti Semite. I'm not so sure. In his view, he is just being obedient to his faith.
