  1. Lucky you got a 9.4 for light finger prints! I had a recent submission on a (seemingly) sure fire 9.8 modern book that got knocked down to a 9.0 for "light fingerprints on cover". They were very faint on a black portion of the cover that were probably missed by myself in my pre-screen but I was still surprised by the grade hit.

    Edmonton Expo - September 21-23, 2018

    I've bailed on the Calgary/ Edmonton Expos as a vendor years ago The smaller local shows are getting saturated and poorly coordinated as well. What to do, what to do...

    Do it, get it graded. You won't have to wait long to sell

    Newsstands in high grade would definitely carry a higher premium to the right buyer. Personally, for myself, I would still buy a nice 75 cent Canadian price "variant" because the very first copy I bought of #21 was brand new off the rack at a local pharmacy in Canada

    Yeah, if you know history of this book it wasn't too long ago that there was no 9.8s on the census. When the first 9.8 copies got graded they were selling well north of $2000 and let's just say I got my first copy for a pretty penny. There were maybe 5-6 copies available at the time. Since then, the census saw a small steady flow of 9.8s grow to over 80 books and prices dropped fairly dramatically up until maybe 2-4 years ago. So the remaining the 11 books that I got were purchased in the $300-$500 range but I doubt I'll ever buy another as current prices are above $1200. It's just one of those books for me that every collector has that you just can't help yourself at buying when the price is right no matter how many copies you have hoarded already.

    Maybe. This is one book I'm having trouble parting with, it's a childhood grail for me. Thought the least I could do is share a pic for others to appreciate!

    Russ Heath, DC War legend, passes away at 91

    Sad to hear. It has only been in the last bunch of years that I have become to really appreciate Heath's entire breadth of work.

    Moderns that are heating up on ebay!

    Agreed, I'm sitting on some 9.8 candidates that I need to get submitted. Besides, its a great Starlin read!
