  6. This event will be held live on Facebook! This was my favorite shop while going to college in Philly! Awesome shop, please support if you can! In light of the current state of the world due to Covid-19 and the inability for some of our patrons to make it in to our stores, we at Fat Jack’s Comicrypt have decided to launch live sales on our Facebook page starting September 27, 2020. Our first sale will be from 7-9 PM on the 27th. We will be offering collectible back issues of comic books, new & backstock trade paperbacks and hardcovers, original art, statues, and other merchandise. We will also have collectibles consigned to us that will be showcased in the sale. Having just passed our 44th year in business, Fat Jack’s is one of the oldest comic stores in the country, and we want to bring comics to fans for years to come and this platform will allow us to do that. Of special note is the complete original art for Black Panther #2, with art by John Romita, Jr. and Klaus Janson, featuring the very first appearance of Shuri (who, is rumored to be the new Panther in the next Black Panther film). We will also have the complete art for issue #1 for sale. The art for these two issues will be sold as a single lot. The opportunity to purchase this art will not present itself again, as the consignor has stated that this is the only offering for sale in the foreseeable future. We will also offer the actual copy of Action Comics #8 which was used as evidence in the lawsuit DC Comics brought against Fawcett Publishing over the Captain Marvel character in the 1940’s.. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a piece of history. We would like to thank JHV Associates for consigning this special historic book with us. Additional Golden Age & Silver Age comics will be up for sale. We invite you to check out our presentation as you just may find the items you may need to fill that want list. If you can’t get to our shops, we can certainly ship to you. We look forward to your feedback. Fat Jack’s Comicrypt is Philadelphia’s oldest and best comic specialty store, and has locations in Center City Philadelphia at 2006 Sansom Street & 521 White Horse Pike, Oaklyn NJ 08107 (856) 858-3877.

  7. Here were my pickups. The X-men 43 was on layaway and was picked up at the show. Another note, Anthony was giving free portfolios with every purchase! What a guy!
  8. Added my report to the first page. Will find out on the Wrightson.
  9. ASM is owned by another collector. Which is the other?
  10. Today was the annual (normally biannual) 2020 comic art con in New Jersey. It was a nice cold morning but the weather warmed up rather quickly by the afternoon. The warmth in the room could be felt as old camaraderies and old friends came together to see each other after what felt like a very long time. It was not only art exchanged but conversations and stories of past and everyone checking on each other and their families. The art in the room was amazing as always there were eight dealers who were set up with a mixture of modern and old Art. The biggest displays belonged to Bechara, Albert and Anthony’s comic art. Prices as we expect to continue to rise and it’s not a surprise that most dealers have priced strong because it’s very difficult to replace items. As collectors we may have become used to seeing pieces sell cheap which has jaded us from buying today. But the more you look around the room you see there’s a lot more youth in this hobby then there was before. Some people say that we are still in a very young state of the hobby while others will say that we’re close to a bubble. I don’t know which way it is either way but there are definitely good buys out there as long as you’re not looking for Steve Ditko or Jack Kirby Premier splashes or pages. For vintage art overall it seems there’s a lot more DC art and there is marvel art. X-Men is very limited supply and is usually picked up very quickly. There is always a good abundance of modern Art available at some of the dealers at various prices. There’s good buys it can be hard definitely if you look through Anthony‘s portfolios there’s some really good pages that not too much money. It’s always great to see some beautiful illustration art at the shows. I saw a few beautiful examples of Frazetta at as well as art by Wallywood. The Buscema pinup that recently sold was in attendance too. The fears of the hobby definitely continue. Many people who are selling are fearful that they’re under pricing some things so the prices are often well above what the market value is. When buying pieces many collectors will refer to different sources and speak to other collectors to see if the price is within reason. It’s an understandable fear but at the same token I feel like the way the market is going as long as you love the piece the market will continue to rise with it. Remember that some of the prices that we saw in 2012 and 2015 were considered high but when you look back today they would be bargains. And for many dealers to replace the Art that they have they have to pay up for it as well and that may reflect into the price that they’re asking. Joe and his team did a great job keeping public safety in mind with limiting how many people are in the room at a time. Temperature checks are being done and everybody was required to wear a mask. Hand sanitizer was plentiful. I felt very comfortable at the show and hope we can have another sooner than later!
  11. Sent you a message. They’re from a comic called Agent 13.
