  1. I agree there are some good books. However, sales are down for the third year in a row. Marvel is propping up their sales by variant covers, over shipping, rebooting series and raising cover prices. All of which hurt comic book shops. They know exactly what they are doing.
  2. Bleeding Cool articles are very biased. What they are leaving out is DC has cut the amount of titles they are producing because the comic market is in a tailspin right now and according to DC they don't have the talent on board to produce the titles. Marvel on the other hand has increased the amount of comics shipping in April in order to continue flooding the shelves. War of the Realms #1 was released in April with 25 variant covers. These predatory practices are part of what is driving comic stores out of business.
  3. Until Marvel stops valuing identity politics over good stories their tailspin will continue. If it wasn't for Disney's deep pockets they would be crashing even faster.
  4. Those in charge at Marvel don't care about making a great comic book anymore. They are there to promote a political agenda. Promoting their agenda plus toxic creators who attack fans equal less sales and increased prices.
  5. Possibly because he was very difficult to work with? He definitely deserves to be in.
  6. Alterna has been able to print 32 page comics with a $1.50 price tag. Marvel should be able to do even better.
  7. I ate lunch with Drew many times at Hungry Harrys on US 41 in Land O Lakes. Super nice guy. He will be missed.
  8. I did something similar to this. I opened the book to the first page and placed a sheet of micro chamber paper across the pages. Every day I turned the page and moved the micro chamber paper to the new page. When I reached the end of the book the smell was gone.
  9. As someone who was once a first responder, that's exactly what I thought and why I clicked on the thread in the first place.
  10. On modern books I use BCW silver age bags and E. Gerber backing boards. The BCW bags have a nice snug fit but not too tight. I would recommend BCW bags over any others. On older books mylite 2's with E Gerber backing boards.
  11. These work well for me book ends Just flip the book end around so the shorter side goes under the comics and angle the comics slightly away from the book end to keep them from sliding down.
  12. I have been using corrugated plastic comic boxes from Bags Unlimited for years. Never had to change them and their long boxes are a bit shorter than normal long boxes so they are easier to carry and move.
  13. On ebay even the professional graders are not professional graders.
