  1. I like the black/white cover than the colour. The color seems a little bit “crowded “ to me.
  2. There’s a foil cover in artgerm’s web store
  3. my mom was cool with my collection..... I would place a Superman or Batman or X-men or something else on top, then on the bottom of the pile was my more (ahem) "interesting" issues..... now my wife...on the other hand.... I got about 8 long boxes... all in the basement, under lock-&-key. When me and my wife fight, she would always bring up my collection and complains about them. At one point, she commented that "she'll burn/sell/throw away all of them". She never did, I figured it was just in the heat of the moment statements.... BUT just-in case, thus the lock.....
  4. Any word on Jay's cover for Aero #1?
  5. In my case, it took close to 1 year (11 months) for books to return to me. It was a SS submission. So I don't think, it'll be lying around any where. Even when it returned, I wasn't too happy...... the books came back with grade less than 9.0, the grader's note said, it was missing a page. Before submitting, I checked those books and didn't noticed any page missing. When I asked about it, all they can say to me is, they submitted the "exact same book, they don't check the inside". I was very suspicious about it, because, after a few month, on their FB page, they're showing a similar book (also SS) BUT with a grade of 9.8..... It's a shame really, I've been going there for my CGC since the 90's and up until now, they were really good.... well until they started renovating and expanding.... then everything all went to $%^& Check-out their FB page and scroll down to date March 25
  6. I think the original plan by Snyder (BWL creator) was to have him as a one-off, the same as the other Dark Metal “Batman”. You got The Red Death (Batman/Flash), Devastator (Batman/Doomsday), Drowned (Aquaman/Batman)... and so on.... they were supposed to returned to the Dark universe by the end of the series. By the middle of the mini series, DC realized that BWL was getting a lot of attention. People were cosplaying, fan art, talking online, etc... I believe this is why the last issue of Dark Metal got held up, they changed the ending slightly, to let BWL stay is the main universe. If DC makes good stories, stay true to the character and NOT overstretched, BWL would become a great addition. On the other hand, if DC put him in all books, that’ll be the end of BWL. Gweenpool anyone? Good article
  7. Close to 20hrs mark and all sets are still available. IMHO people realized that it’s a re-used art (as pointed before)(that’s just laziness) so they didn’t bother with this set..... The beginning of the end???
  8. I’ve been passing all his Catwoman covers...... I don’t know. Even his Captain Marvel seems mediocre to me..... I really like his Supergirl, Wonder Woman and Harley. I think it’s his dark background, that throwing me off.
  9. It’s below Black Widow’s right armpits and right boob. Its a very messy cover, too much is going on. Who’s the chick kneeling below, the one with the “W” on her belly???
  10. Same can be said to any comic artist. Just look at Campbell, and Jim Lee’s art.... all their covers that featured women all look the same. The only difference is facial expression (smiling or closed lips); different hair style, mask or not, and even different angles. Heck, I think even AH all his women looked the same. I think only Alex Ross’ cover looks like a different women....
  11. Well MAD (Joe Madureira) was very popular in the 90's with his anime style X-men. I'm guessing Battles Chaser's popularity is being fueled by nostalgia.... I think MAD is trying to return back to comics when his video games route went bust..... I still remember bidding on a full set of Battle Chasers #1 CGC SS 9.8-9.6 about 10 yrs ago. I believe there were 4 covers and I won (CND$100)
  12. Is there any reason why this book is that hot?? A ratio of 1:100 should be just $100 after a week not x7 First appearance?? Major death?? First artist cover?? First “spider-wang”??? (DC done it why not Marvel) im asking since I passed on this regular book last week.......
  13. Thanks Dre... Hope your mom feels better Question : Are you gonna have JCS's Return of Wolverine?
  14. When DC announced that there doing the Black Label Series, they also announce it as being matured. Heck, they even announce that Batman White Knight will be getting a Black Label treatment (w/ Joker and Harley, doing it full-on). When DC announced it, people didn't noticed it. They were just "eh...whatever". When the book arrived, comic book store, didn't heavy ordered it either. I think at my area, only one LCS ordered heavily, the rest only ordered for their Batman pull box. Even then, people weren't noticing it..... Only when DC announced that, it's going back to 2nd printing and saying that on future printing, it'll be censored. Then that's when everybody wants a piece of it. It also doesn't help that it was featured on some Late Night Shows. I think the reason for this crazy spike is, it's not because of "it", i think, it's because censored future printing and it got crazy publicity coverage......
  15. I’m on the fence if this would have staying power. It has Batman, the first book of DC’s new comic book lines, showed Batman’s wang (a shadowy at best), it also showed us a side of Bruce’s dad, plus the Joker died. But it if you guys all remember Marvel’s Ultimate Line. That was supposed to bring the characters into the 20th century... what happened now??? The only remnants is Miles (Spider-Man 2.0) At first the line was big success, MCU Nick Fury was even based on that. But eventually, the line folded, and nobody cared anymore. Id say Batman Damned #1 is like Ultimate Spider-Man #1.... for a few years it’ll stay hot, but eventually it’ll cool down.....
  16. Where do you live?? If you’re close to the GTA, there’s a lot of LCS that’ll submit books for you. A much easier route IMHO. If that’s not an option, if you go to Canada Post’s website, there is a form that’ll you need. I forgot the form number. Essentially the form has to be half filled out by you and CGC. Basically the form is to inform custom that you’re not selling/buying anything but only a service (CGC). This way you won’t get charged/taxed when the book returns to you.
  17. Detective Comics #27 Fabok Fan Expo Exclusives  Raw/Acetate set:  $60 raw NM+ or better set x1
  18. Detective Comics #880 Black Foil Exclusive  $50 raw NM+ or better x1
  19. The only difference between the two is the forehead shadow of Batman (one has it and the other doesn't) and the elastic on Catwoman's goggles (one has more lines)..... Other than those two, I don't see any difference. I guess he's so used to drawing Batman and Catwoman, that he can drawing them almost identically. It is a sketch though..... I guess if he's asked to draw Batman and Catwoman head sketches, that's his default drawing. He doesn't have to think about poses or head position or where to draw
  20. A year is just too long I wish they would show a picture narrating the books..... I know it's Hazel, but the dialogue suggest that she's all grown-up and telling this story to somebody......
