  1. So many questions, I will try to limit myself to on topic. Scott, great job. I don’t have a discerning enough eye or nearly enough knowledge, but has Byrne’s pencils changed over time? More general question for anyone: I get why you wouldn’t give an artist or writer complete creative control, but this brings up a non art question I have. I sort of got sick of reading comics when they massively amped up power levels to ridiculous levels. I understand why this happens from an individual creator’s standpoint, but I don’t know why it is allowed to happen. I read about the Hulk havin
  2. Can someone please link me to a “reputable” online chat board. Something on face book or Instagram, but is legit (no Qanon stuff mixed in, nothing that will get me in trouble)? I just want to see how the general public (not these boards) talks about investing in comics.
  3. On the other hand, I just looked at the Ha.com historical auction prices for Green Lantern 76 in 9.6 (don’t have data points for a 9.8. It looks like it has dropped or stayed the same price over the last ten years. Same from what I see in GPA. Not a lot of data points, and I know dc isn’t marvel, but it seems like a key book that comic collectors would want. I don’t know which has way this cuts. Are there brand new collectors that might simply have no interest in the character or social importance? Or is it a book that simply isn’t being hyped as the next 10 bagger. Maybe it would be ea
  4. Thanks for these answers. I am not involved in social media much. I think things make a lot more sense when thinking about what I have been hearing recently going on in Facebook and Instagram. I get if a whole generation of people has made money on bitcoin and are looking for the next big thing how things could explode like this.

  6. Hasn’t the rise in prices been selective? I have read that most non keys, especially D.C. haven’t gone up that much, and I am not sure which way this cuts. High grade Green Lantern 76 hasn’t gone anywhere as far as I can tell, and that may mean the character has lost relevance to all the new collectors, or it isn’t seen as a hypeable comic. Which comics have.soared in value and how much is due to a new wave of collectors, a new wave of speculators, or the current collectors seeing it as equivalent to sports cards and relatively under valued, is all unclear to me.
  7. Prices of sports cards are soaring. I attributed this to a combination of two factors; 1) new collectors due to COVID who got into sports, here and around the world; 2) money printing/speculation/fomo, etc. the second factor is the bigger dynamic. It is easy to see this second factor. I would like opinions on whether the comic market has also experienced a wave of new legitimate collectors. I am not talking about just speculators and I am not talking at all about the rush to get out of cash. I am seeking opinions on whether the number of people who are genuinely interested in the hobby
  8. I would like to test a theory. Please like this post if you think NFT's are BS, but would also pay money to say you are the official owner of this. Thanks.
  9. I apologize in advance as this is going to come off as a stream of consciousness question, because it really is two questions; are there a stream of new collectors coming into the market, and if so, what do they want and how is it affecting the hobby. When I joined about 11 years ago, the conventional wisdom was that this hobby was on borrowed time. New readers were fewer and reading comics that were digitally drawn. Movie goers weren’t going to be interested in becoming comic collectors, let alone OA collectors. Key high grade comics might jump in front of a movie, but it was all specula
  10. I am certain this post will result in me having a garage full of worthless 20 years from now.
  11. I could have posted this anywhere on the CGC website, and it might have already been covered, but in 20 years, is there anything you think a lot of people will be saying, “I can’t believe I wasn’t stockpiling these”. It has happened with comics, OA, magic the gathering, garbage pail kids, Pokémon, etc. What do you think people are missing now ?
  12. I agree with this thought completely. Is there anything like OA 20 years ago that you expect will appeal to the Chinese? Do the Chinese have a collecting culture? Is there no way of knowing other than buying already expensive antiquities from auction houses? Thanks in advance for any response.
