  1. Thanks for add the Pre-Unity book. I generally strongly, strongly, strongly, strongly agree that TPBs should not be added to sets. (That one of the 4 TPBs reprinting the 18 Unity issues (Unity Saga 1-4) is included in the Valiant Unity Set annoys me to no end). Solar, Man of Atom: Alpha & Omega #0 is a bit different as it was issued by Valiant as the zero issue for Solar where as the other Valiant zero issues (i.e. Magnus, Shadowman, Harbinger, etc) were floppies in Solar's case it was in TPB form. If it is too contentious do not worry about it. Ok, it is a little different story with that one... I'll put it in, but know it may come out later if it causes a big stink. I do see your point though.
  2. Hi Molly: Can you please add to the Usagi Yojimbo set the following books: Albedo 2 Universal Albedo 3 Modern 1445017006 Albedo 4 Modern 1297682004 Critters 1 Modern 2025253006 Critters 3 Modern 0158518021 Doomsday Squad 3 Universal Critters 6 Modern 1562996023 Critters 7 Universal Critters 10 Universal Critters 11 Modern 0283801010 Critters 14 Modern 0176240008 These are the first Usagi Yojimbo stories in chronological order and used in the series internal numbering before the Usagi Yojimbo finally had his own book.
  3. I have a problem with two of my CGC books. The first book is Captain Johner & the Aliens #2 (Valiant 5/95) yet when I type in the certificate number 0178042003 it comes up as Eternal Warrior 3. See attachments. The second is Grimm Fairy Tales #120 (Zenescope Entertainment 3/16) C2E2 2016 Exclusive and when I type in the certificate number 1358848003 it says it is unable to locate this comic based on the certificate number. See attachments. I hope the first book can have its listing corrected so the certificate points to the correct book in the database and the second book can be added to the database.
  4. Not sure if this is the right place for this but there is something wrong in the database for: Eternal Warrior 1 Gold Variant Cover https://comics.www.collectors-society.com/registry/comics/SlotScoreDetail.aspx?SlotID=32793 In the chart it lists a CGC 9.8 Universal should be 176 points and for very few people (like me) it is 176 points https://comics.www.collectors-society.com/registry/comics/PeopleSetDetail.aspx?PeopleSetID=35566 but for most others it is 240 points: https://comics.www.collectors-society.com/registry/comics/PeopleSetDetail.aspx?PeopleSetID=95394 https://comics.www.collectors-society.com/registry/comics/PeopleSetDetail.aspx?PeopleSetID=7656 https://comics.www.collectors-society.com/registry/comics/PeopleSetDetail.aspx?PeopleSetID=63193 This is a key book in 3 different sets and the 176 vs 240 is a big difference.
  5. Two requests please: Set: Solar, Man of Atom Book: Solar, Man of the Atom: Alpha & Omega #0 Certificate: 2006999023 There has been a lot of push back on adding Trade Paperbacks to sets. I am going to avoid adding Trades, at this time, until a common consensus can be found among Collector's Society members. Set: Valiant Pre-Unity Book: Solar, Man of the Atom 10 Second Printing Certificate: 0936746002
  6. Not quite as nice as the 9.4 discussed above that I was the under bidder on but I finally got my Solar 1. In 9.0 which I guess is fitting as it matches my Magnus 1 and Turok 1 which are the same grade. Much lighter on the wallet as only 1,250 on eBay.
  7. Pretty pumped about my auction wins today. It was a Magnus heavy day. Picked up 14 issues that I needed (and lost 4 others that I needed).
  8. Here is my new copy of Ninja-K gold with the certificate number if that helps with adding the missing four books. Sorry that I only have the raw scan above for Shadowman (2018) as I don’t yet have a graded copy. The four books: Bloodshot Salvation #1 Gold Ninja-K #1 Gold Shadowman (2018) #1 Gold X-O Manowar (2017) #1 Gold
  9. Hi Mollie: Thanks for adding the Quantum & Woody (2013) #1 gold to the Valiant Entertainment Gold Variants (2012+). Can you please add the 4 other books that are missing: Bloodshot Salvation #1 Gold Ninja-K #1 Gold Shadowman (2018) #1 Gold X-O Manowar (2017) #1 Gold If it helps I am including scans of two of the four books I already have in CGC 9.8 plus scans of what the other two that I still need look like ungraded. Thanks,
  10. I was pretty quite around the Boards here after I sold off all my Marvels and Barks Ducks (thanks for the help with that Tim) as the only slabs I get were some V1 Valiants (plus all 1000's of unslabbed books). I was still in Hong Kong though up until a year and a half ago when I moved to Singapore to launch a hedge fund with a Business School mate of mine. Still make it back to HK about once a quarter and keep a mailing address and have kept my HK mobile number. Think my wife and daughter want to spend fall term break there so I would likely pop up with them for part of it and we should be there for Christmas as well. Maybe a month and a half ago I got back into getting Valiant slabs (V1 pretty hard). I have been reading the new Valiant but other than Gold and Metal covers have basically buying anything else slabbed. With my Valiant project I decided to go after the original Magnus, Solar and Turok books. I won Turok 1 in the Comiclink auction and picked up #4 off of eBay. Got Magnus 1 plus another 5 or so books and picked up maybe 10 of the Solars. I am generally going for 9.2+ for the books but did do 9.0 for Magnus 1 and Turok 1 given their relative scarcity in high grade. If you are ever interested in moving some of your Turok or Solar hit me up.
  11. Hi Tim. Been a long time since chatted. You are doing Solar along with the Ducks now? What about Magnus and Turok.
  12. You only need two crazy fans to drive a books price in auction up. The book was about $2,000 when I started bidding and I was the underbidder at 5,005. As it was in one of those conicconnect extended time auctions I believe that I was the sole other bidder on the book. I never ended up as the high bidder as it went from $2000 to its closing price so someone had placed an insanely high bid in previously. Found out later that the same book had been sitting in the ComicLink market place with a lower price for months and no one bid. I would be careful reading too much into one sale. It might just have been the winner and I who were willing to pay so much for this book.
  13. Yes I am quite happy to finally get a high grade copy of Magnus 1. To get that and the Turok in the same auction makes me a happy camper today. I was actually expecting the Turok to go for more than the Magnus. I thought prices would be swapped given the age and rarity of the two books.
  14. I thought with the bids I put in I was going to do really well on the Doctor Solar and Magnus high grade issues. I expected to win them far below what I bid and struck out. Solar 3 CGC 9.4 Won for $165.00.....The one issue I did not bid on as I bought it off eBay for $250 last week Solar 4 CGC 9.4 Won for $430.00.....I was the underbidder $405.00 Solar 5 CGC 9.4 Won for $2,350.00 …. I "only" bid $828.00 This seems crazy high even if it is his first costume Solar 7 CGC 9.6 Won for $480.00.....I was the underbidder $455.00 Solar 10 CGC 9.6 Won for $480.00.....I was the underbidder $455.00 Solar 14 CGC 9.8 Won for $480.00.....I was the underbidder $455.00 Solar 18 CGC 9.8 Won for $480.00.....I was the underbidder $455.00 Solar 20 CGC 9.8 Won for $605.00. ….Price surprised me as I bid $455.00 Magnus 2 CGC 9.6 Won for $1,000.00...I bid $625.00 Magnus 4 CGC 9.4 Won for $983.00.... bid $625.00 I was left the CGC 9.0 to CGC 9.2 and won Magnus 1 CGC 9.0 and Magnus 2 CGC 9.2 as well as Turok 1 (FC 596) CGC 9.0 I am curios as to the GPA prices on the books I won as my subscription had lapsed and didn't have time to renew before I bid.
  15. Hi Mollie: There are 5 books that need to be added to set: Valiant Entertainment Gold Variants (2012+) to make it up to date with 25 books in total. Please add: Bloodshot Salvation #1 Gold Ninja-K #1 Gold Quantum & Woody (2017) #1 Gold Shadowman (2018) #1 Gold X-O Manowar (2017) #1 Gold To better differentiate between three of these new books with three books already in the set I suggest adding the year to those three books already there to avoid confusion as Valiant often reuses the same name for new series. Specifically the three books already in the set have the same name but from an earlier series are: Quantum & Woody (2013) #1 Gold Shadowman (2012) #1 Gold X-O Manowar (2012) #1 Gold Thanks
