  1. Agreed, Bob. It's just so f'ing cool. It's beyond cool. When I was a freshman and first saw it in SotI in my high school library.I went nuts. I've owned 2 or 3 over the years, but this is just too much.
  2. When Ed was telling me about the collection you could feel the excitement in his voice. I've known Ed since 1992. He's seen everything - yet this time it was different when he was describing it to me.
  3. It's the coolest thing I've seen since September 16, 1978 when the Windy City collection walked into my shop on the first day I was open.
  4. Exactly. My posting is just stoking the fire. The real juice will be the listing of the individual issues and the scans as they come back from CGC. The backstory brings to mind brotherly love and respect.
  5. Yes. They go back to the late 30s but the early books are generally not high grade. I understand there's a complete run of Caps and the later ones are tremendous.
  6. Yes, it's my understanding that the highest graded books are from this period.
  7. Again, I don't want to jump the gun, but the back story is heart-warming and the impetus for this collection to still exist today.
  8. According to my contact, this new collection checks every box.
  9. If the books in this new collection only sell for an average of $1,000 each that's $5 million. Unbelievable. I can't wait to see exactly what's in there. And all I heard was 9.6 and 9.8 on the first batch back.
  10. I'm not going to steal Heritage's thunder, but I will say that I spoke to a close buddy today who told me that they will be selling a new pedigree collection of 5,000 high-grade GA books. What he was telling me was absolutely mind-blowing. They're still out there!
  11. Episode 2 of Moondog’s Pop Culture Radio Hour is available now! Back in the fall of 1993 the biggest news in comics was the upcoming debate between two friends of mine: Peter David and Todd McFarlane. It would take place on October 8 at ComicFest in Philadelphia. Basically Todd and his Image Comics brothers thought that the emphasis on, and popularity of, writers was misplaced and that artists were the real stars when it came to the creation of comic books. Peter, at the time one of the most pop
  12. Episode 2 has Peter David explaining how he's going to match up with Todd McFarlane in their infamous debate at the Philadelphia Comic Fest in Nov 1993. That's the kind of stuff that was going on in the world of comics back in the early 90s!
  13. For the first time in over 27 years, The Moondog's Pop Culture Radio Hour is back on the air! I dusted off all the old tapes and made them available at www.moondogbuyscomics.com/podcast. This first show features Dave Sim, Neil Gaiman, Jim Valentino, Jimmy Palmiotti, Joe Quesada, Todd MacFarlane, Alex-Hyde White and a whole lot of cool stuff that was happening in the world of comic books back in September 1993. Look for new episodes every other Wednesday at w
