  1. For me it's close, but I would choose Perez based solely on Future Imperfect. That book blew me away as a kid.
  2. '1st Silver Age appearance' comics usually are designated when a certain character has not been used for a while, no? Such as Batman 171 (Riddler), Batman 234 (Two-Face, clearly in Bronze but I guess there had been a lengthy layoff for the villain), Batman 189 (Scarecrow), etc. Creating a dividing line between Showcase 4 when the character has been regularly appearing sequentially doesn't usually cut it unless I'm mistaken.
  3. That's funny except it's 'Patience is a virue.' I guess you can't spell-check a piece like that though.
  4. I wouldn't consider this political at all. I actually work in MILSATCOM too. I'm not sure I'll get onboard with the show, though. The US military as bumbling iddiots schtick has stopped being that funny to me. It seems Hollywood portrays it in no other way except when trying for nonfiction.
  5. I wen on a deep dive to try and figure out Heritage taxes and it was very hazy and unclear. Even something as simple as shipping and handling is not easily spelled out. Yeah, it's on the buyer to figure that out. But they certainly don't make it easy.
  6. I've been re-watching some of these with my kids. They wanted to see them all in the order they came out. I didn't see them all because they've watched some at my ex-wife's house too. I've been really surprised at how much I've enjoyed re-watching these. These are some super fun movies that I think will stand the test of time, at least as great action/sci-fi movies.
  7. Heritage is a pain. You have to add buyer's premium and then nearly an extra 10% for taxes. It's hard to figure out exactly what the final ticket price will be. I've been burned a few times by not doing enough research into their additional costs.
  8. No one wants to be staring down the business end of a one-eyed monster.
  9. My oldest daughter is devouring some of my trade paperbacks right now. If I'm reading an arc, I'd rather it be all together rather than in 18 different floppies.
  10. Yeah I read his post and then was incredibly confused by people suggested he ditch some his treasured keapsakes he'd painstakingly assembled.
  11. Yeah for sure. I never said they're not cool. They definitely are. To me it seems like price variation collectors are niche. There are probably people that seek out pence copies over cent copies. Just like there are people who seek out Canadian price variants. It just seems like those seeking out pence copies are unwilling to pay a premium for them like other price variants. If they were, when they came to market at auction they would go for more money.
  12. Hmmm I disagree with the 'herd mentality' theory. I also don't think it's due to the ignorance of collectors. I think many collectors feel the way I feel about them. I understand they came off the same run; Pence copies are not reprints. I understand they are more rare. Sorry, don't care. The cent versions are just more attractive to me; I like them better. That's not to say that Pence copies aren't cool or neat. I just like their 'cent' counterparts better.
