  1. This weekend I attended a local ComicCon where I bought some old hobby magazines. One called “Superman & Batman Magazine” really captured my attention. There were multiple pages dedicated to the “Mask of the Phantasm” film. Originally planned for a direct-to-video release, Warner Bros. ultimately decided to give Mask of the Phantasm a theatrical release. The film was released on December 25, 1993. This magazine pre-dates the film. You can tell because the back cover says, “coming this holiday season to theaters everywhere.” The interior pages were more than just a passing advertisement. The content dug deep into preliminary sketches, and the Mask of the Phantasm voice actors. It also included a jumbo-sized centerfold poster. In a world where collectors try to define “first appearances” and early cameos, I would like to submit that this magazine is just as important as the “official movie adaption” comic book. This could be the first time The Phantasm was ever in print. Anyways ... that's just my two cents.
  2. here's a random 2 books new to my collection ...
  3. (#1.) I have a comic with a mostly white cover. While the corners & spine are sharp, there has been some color-rub deposited near the staples (from the back cover of a different comic). How does this usually effect an otherwise great-shape comic? (#2.) I have a comic that has holes in the spine from what looks like a re-staple. I assume this was a production error, but can't find any other copies with a similar problem. Will this kill the grade? Thanks!

  5. If you have a nice Comic Book that was signed (unwitnessed), what is your best option? Can you have a company like PSA/DNA or JSA "certify" the signature before sending it to CGC? If the signature is inside the book, will CGC make a note on the label? I think JSA puts a "sticker" on the back of the book as a COA with a unique number you can research online. I have no desire to send it to Voldemort. Does anyone have samples of what they have done? Thanks!
  6. Good Day; Feel free to move if the wrong forum/page -- How do you feel about this Jack Kirby signature?
  7. Here's my 2018 sketchcard review -- feel free to ask questions --
  8. Agree with the above. Good fine show. I didn't spend a lot of money (but that's cause I'm hunting a bargain, not content with eBay prices). Chad Hardin -- $5 per sigWhilce Portacio -- 5 sigs free Adam Hughes -- $40 head sketches Pic of artist prices: Here's my blog link to a pair of sketches I got:
  9. saved as many screenshots as i could find -- LMK if you have more ...
  10. Thanks to those who have visited by BLOG so far. It's all about SketchCards and NonSports trading cards. I can use some help. Only 6 of my 303 visitors have come from "search engines." Is this just a product of being new? Will it take time? I would love feedback from any other bloggers! Thanks. P.S. -- another magazine published a sketchcard article of mine. It's on shelves this week, so new blog post soon.
  11. For trade as a full set. Infinity Gauntlet 1-6 value is about $120 Thanos Quest is about $60 Infinity War is about $10 Priority box is about $13 shipping So looking for about $200 total trade value.
  12. First 30 days were great. I posted six interviews with artists, and was published in Beckett Magazine. Thanks, all!
  13. I'm sure these aren't rare; But had to buy when I saw them. Were these "big box store" bundles? No "DC Logo" variants showing. Should i assume they are better left sealed?
  14. Hey friends -- I started a SketchCard blog to tell a few stories no one else seemed to be telling. Eventually I will start posting original comic art, too. (In fact, I got 2 new pages in the mail today). So if you like WordPress stuff, follow along, & thank for your time:
