  1. Hi Mollie, Thanks for adding these. I just learned that the latest story arc only ran through 54. The series will be on a break for somewhere around a year (but only the creators can say for sure). Sorry. They've taken breaks before but usually only for about 3 months. Can issue 55 be removed from both sets for the time being? Thanks
  2. Hi Rich, Have you heard anything about Brian Vaughan or Fiona Staples showing up? They weren't on the list of scheduled attendees last I checked. Wondered if you may have any inside info either way. Thanks, Scott
  3. Taking a shot at trying to reach the owner of the recent listing of a CGC 9.8 #18 Error version of Sandman on ebay via Mycomicshop. If you are on the boards please get in touch with me via messaging. Thanks, Scott

  5. Hi Mollie, Would you please add issues 50-55 to both Saga 1st Prints Only and Saga Complete with Variants. In addition if you would add #50 Virgin Variant to the Complete with Variants set. Thank you
  6. Looking for a CGC 9.8 copy of the non-variant Mexican edition of Saga #1. I'm willing to pay $200+. I can also offer trade (or some combination of cash/trade) from a large collection of CGC 9.8 SAGA and SANDMAN (Gaiman) both Blue and Yellow labels for each if preferred. Please message me direct if you have a copy of this book and we can work out the details. Thanks, Scott
  7. Received my books today. Thank you very much Rich for the books and the bonus books! Look forward to dealing with you more.
  8. Hi Rich, I'll take this and the #342 if I haven't overlooked someone claiming them first.
  9. Hi, I originally posted this in Comics General and I'm adding it here from a suggestion I received there. I'm interested in options for CGC 9.8 Subscription service. I know of 2 personally (3204 Auctions and Made the Grade). I've also heard about BeachBum comics but don't know anything about them. Any other recommendations members can suggest or feedback to offer on the few I've named? Thanks, Scott

  11. I'm looking for any assistance, advice, help, you name it for a problem that I've run into over a recent attempted purchase of a unique CGC 9.8 GOTR #1 Sig. Series The book, The auction I won this auction and made my payment the same day. The next day I received an email on the item. At first I thought it was just a confirmation that the item had been sent out by the seller. Instead it turned out to be cancellation of my purchase from the seller along with a corresponding refund! I emailed the seller right after to find out what was going on. Here was the reply I received: I was in the process of shipping off the comic when I accidentally dropped it on my kitchen floor. I will need to ship the item to CGC for a new case. Sorry for the inconvenience! I told the seller to just send it to me and I could decide if I would need to reholder the book. I noted he could give me a small refund off the purchase price if they chose. I followed that message up with a question of why they cancelled the purchase in the first place. I felt the seller should have contacted me about the problem to discuss it and possible solutions. None of those would have been me choosing not to buy the book. I received a reply back hours later saying they did not see my response and that they had already sent the book to CGC in that time! Here is the picture I received of the "damage" Damage? I was, and continue to be, highly skeptical of both the circumstances of the damage as well as the sending off of the book for, I assume, reholder that quickly. But I let the seller know that I still wanted the book and expected them to notify me when the book was back and to honor the price I paid for it. I asked if they would do that and heard nothing back. It is getting to be about the time a reholder submission may be completed. I tried again recently to reach the seller for an update and whether they were going to fulfill the, imo, wrongly cancelled order. Nothing. So I contacted ebay to see if they could reach the seller and use their involvement to get the seller to follow through with the deal. I heard back from the ebay representative this afternoon and they had been in contact with the seller. What they shared from that contact seems very contradictory. The seller was dealing with family issues and they were in the process of closing their ebay account. Yet they would supposedly let me be the first to know if they listed the item again. I'll note here that according to gpa this book sold for $1500 back in 2014. You can see that if the seller is the buyer from that time they would have been taking a decent loss on the book. Needless to say I'm very frustrated by all of what has taken place. I don't know if I'm dealing with a scam artist or not. On one hand I have not lost any money so that is a positive. On the other I thought I would be the owner of a truly special book based on all of the sigs from a great show at a tremendous value. Now I'm not and I'm skeptical that I ever will be. So that is a BIG negative. So I'm putting my story out to the board community for their insights and suggestions. This may also serve as both a warning to others about this seller and a request that if anyone happens to see this book pop up for sale anywhere to let me know and be forewarned yourself. FWIW here is the seller info I received from my paypal refund: Anthony Rey anthonyrey83@gmail.com Thanks in advance for any help you can give me here.
