  1. It would be nice if the promoter would publish a list of exhibitors. It's in my hometown, but I'm not going unless there are a fair amount of comics dealers.
  2. And that is my biggest fear. While I don't remember owning many Charlton, Red Circle, etc., I did have a pretty decent collection of Atlas/Seaboard titles.
  3. I agree with this. In all the Kirbys I've plowed through in the past week, I've never come across a panel layout of his that's reminiscent of the left hand page in the photo. Nope, just checked. Just checked. No go. Not Champions 18, but I appreciate all the suggestions!
  4. This spread doesn't appear in New Gods, Mister Miracle, The Forever People, The Eternals or Kamandi. I've checked every page (I'm very unpopular with my wife this week). Believe me, I'm starting to second guess what I'm seeing as well. I figured my only chance was that this just happens to be someone's favorite comic of all time and sees this this thread.
  5. It's a scan. The comic is such a tiny portion of the original photo, I had to blow it up quite a bit just to be able to make anything out at all. And, no. I don't think I'll ever get over Macho Grande. Those wounds run...pretty deep.
  6. Yeah, it's a pretty lousy image. It's such a small portion of the original photo. My first thought was Uatu, as well. But after scouring all the Watcher appearances I could find, I don't think it is. However, I could be wrong.
  7. Help identify this comic from an old photo I was recently gifted a box of family photos that included a photo of myself from February 1978. I'm in my room reading a comic that I can't remember or identify. Here's a scan: Any eagle-eyed bronze age fans recognize anything from these pages? It appears there's dude in the upper left corner of the left hand page wearing a high-collared...robe? Maybe? And in the middle panel on the right, another dude with arched eyebrows? I'm drawing a complete blank. I was reading everything Marvel and DC at this point, and had a pretty decent collection starting from 1973 onward. I did have a few silver age books that I picked up at garage sales, flea markets etc, so it's possible it's older. Any help would be appreciated.
  8. I thought at the very least I'd get PMed an offer or two. No one likes to haggle anymore?
  9. Sandman 8B Editorial Variant CGC 9.4 - $1800 $1600 (priority shipping, insurance and Paypal fees included) PayPal only, no returns on CGC books. Ebay feedback here. First gets it. Let me know if you have questions.
  10. Is that a colour rub on two different places on the back ? If so, I'm sticking with my 9.4. I have a 9.6 with one speck of that rub on one corner of the back cover. I even talked to Matt Nelson about it. The rubs on your book are much larger, and if in two different places I'm not seeing a 9.6. 9.4, maybe. CGC is tight now too, so also keep that in mind. Best of luck let us know how it turns out. Hopefully the others will end up being right. (thumbs u -J. You are correct. There is a lesser linear rub to the right of the trademark and the larger rub above it. I'll post my Baltimore results here in a couple weeks.
  11. Thanks Jaydog and RockMyAmadeus. And yes, that speckling on the spine is reflected light. It's a Karen Berger variant so I had planned to get it graded regardless, but having never submitted a book for grading, I wondered how those rubs might affect the grade. I'm going to be in Baltimore in a couple weeks and I see that onsite grading is offered. Any experience with onsite grading positively or negatively affecting the grade?
  12. Pictures would help. (thumbs u -J. I'm not close to a scanner this weekend, but here's the best camera phone pic I can pull off at the moment: Bottom right back cover corner: Front:
