  5. I understand you don't want to see the image if you don't want to, that's your choice. This is why the book was shipped in a black bag to cover the image. I understand not having it shown in public and it being your choice if you want to see it. If you slab a nude image, it should be for your eyes only. However, since this is porn cover, by your definition, do you associate BOOM! Studios with porn? Do you still read their books or any book/magazine company that are associated with porn? Do you like that they are associated with porn? I understand this may be CGC's logic but there are other comic covers (as some have already posted) that display porn images was well. I find it hard to understand where the line is and that any image with penetration is their limit when there many covers are slabbed with nudity and porn images as well. Like someone has posted earlier, money is money, and I think they are leaving money on the table for books like this.
  6. Yeah, the whole "no penetration" rule is a bummer. The art on these covers are stunning, from an art perspective. Found out during Heroes Con that neither CGC or it's competitors would slab these books. It's a shame, as there art is art! I understand if they don't want to slab real nude pics of people but as a fan of all forms of art, it is just that, art by a great artist. I think penetration in art is still really taboo, especially if you look at other media sites that won't let even art with nudity be displayed. Maybe we can get a petition going to have these books slabbed!!!
  7. So this just happened and I am highly disappointed. I really enjoyed this show. I enjoyed it more than the comic (surprisingly). Th writing and acting were some of the best of a SyFy show and comic adaptation. I hope Netflix or Amazon can pick this up (I doubt Hulu will, since Disney owns most of the stock now).
  8. 1. The pic is not great, and I don't anybody can really tell or give a good opinion with a bad pic. 2.@forbiddenwon , I think this is the wrong place for your pic of these books, as trying to get grade from this pic doesn't work. You would need a up close pic of the all sides and corners of whatever book you want the community to give a grade on. 3. In my opinion, the books have a good lot of signatures. I like the blanks with a hefty load of sigs (as many as you can get). You can definitely see the signatures better on blanks than on art covers. I think signatures on art covers ruins the art, unless they are kind enough to sign on empty space.
  9. I will have to submit the most recent issue of Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man #6 I'm not a fan of the big arc stuff, especially nowadays, but this was a great modern single issue story, that gave all the feels. Great story & art. A must read. (great thread btw)
  10. Millers signature might be noted on the back of the Label, since I'm sure there wasn't enough space to list all the signatures on the front Label. Also, since there is a comma after the annotation of Jim Shooter's signature and not an ampersand,I believe the annotations continue onto the back of the label.
  11. jsgonz0 Message I got from this user: "Sorry this is a mistake my son dont know what he was doing." Well, I guess your son shouldn't be on Ebay since the user bid 12 times during my auction
  12. I understand this theory for the future. What if we just see another set of individual movies leading to a formation of another team? What if we get Spider-Man (movie), Kate Bishop (Hawkeye streaming), Speed & Wiccan (Wanda/Vision streaming) lead the way to "The Champions/Young Avengers" or Namor, Hulk, Doctor Strange movies leading to "Defenders" ? Also, what if there is never another Avengers movie? With Eternals being produced, maybe we will see more space teams and/or movies. Possibly move stories away from Earth/America and see Captain Britain, Namor, Nova, etc.
  13. I am hoping that at least Namor gets brought into Phase 4 & this leads to "The Defenders" (I mean, look how good Aquaman was for DC)
  14. I think the biggest question is, would you be okay if it downgraded to a 9.6? If so, then definitely go for it (I enjoy multiple sigs on a book, especially when it completes the list of the book's contributors). If you are not okay if it downgrades, then I would hold off. However, there are definitely some handlers that can do their best to keep it at a 9.8, so I advice talking to them. Lastly, if you do get it done, I think you should give us an updated pic with the complete sigs and a congratulations would be in order! Good luck!
  15. Agree, Mycomishop is pretty good, no complains. Also ships and packages really well.
  16. Both series are co-productions with Marvel Television and ABC Signature Studios and join the upcoming third season of "Marvel’s Runaways" and recently announced adult animated series based on the popular Marvel Television characters including “Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K.,” “Marvel’s Hit Monkey,” “Marvel’s Tigra & Dazzler Show,” and “Marvel’s Howard the Duck," which will culminate in a special event, “Marvel’s The Offenders.” Wait, what the wha? The "Offenders"????? First time hearing about this too! So I am guessing HULU is now the home of Marvel tv show productions instead o Netflix
  17. Just came back from 830pm showing. Going to try to post this spoiler-free review: I have to say that it was not as good as Infinity War. IW had more action and was better paced. End Game is a little slower due to trying to "dot the i's and cross the t's". Definitely great battles scenes. I agree that the comedy was forced a bit at times, as the running jokes shouldn't have run as much as they did. As a swan song, it was definitely that as it definitely gave me some feels at the end. There are still a couple of plot holes. Unfortunately, too long to make me want to see it again in theaters but a good fan boy movie and conclusion to 22 movies.
  18. I think they want to movie to also be more about one man rising up to be a villain, I think the point is to take the "villain" out of the equation and look at the Joker as man, against the troubles of the world and/or maybe an anti-hero of sorts. I think the potential to look at him as a person rising up against the troubles of the world and going crazy is more exciting than just a plain old villain in the world. The Joker is definitely more complicated than just being a villain and to see the world through his (crazy) eyes and mind, is the goal here. Overall, i am pretty excited for this movie and the potential it has to 1. Be a great movie & 2. A good anti-hero movie for the DC Cinematic Universe.
  19. This actually makes sense for Neal, since he literally has as whole store worth of stuff when he attends conventions! Maybe if the store is successful, he may lower his signing prices
  20. ***I am putting up a list of CGC SS for auction on my Ebay store. *** Ebay Store link: DJMartini The following are up for auction, as well as other slabs that are up for offers! If you are a Board member and want to put in an offer, I will definitely be willing to negotiate the price better than non-board members, just let me know or PM me.
  21. HA! this is actually quite funny as I just watched the movie "Tulip Fever". spoiler alert:
  22. I agree, that with Wolverine out of the picture right now for films, Venom could take an edge if it gets rolling with it's own films. Carnage definitely needs to be in the next film. They could go many ways with continuing films, such as exploring the current origin stories being produced in comics. Sony could also go with different Venom "hosts" for future movies (in case Hardy becomes too much money to cast). I would love to see Thunderbolts movie where they use Venom as a replacement for Spider-Man in the "Dark Avengers" line up. This could take place while everyone was "dead" during Infinity War (but that may just be a fantasy, since I would assume everyone returns during End Game). And yes, 5 years from now, I think ASM #300 could rocket up in price. If McFarlene's new Spawn and other properties start to take off, this might be a way that ASM #300 will also start taking off too
  23. The only problem with this thought is that Wolverine as a character is far more popular than Venom will ever be. Not many people (outside of us comics folk) really know who Venom is. If you ask if someone know who Wolverine is to a non-comic fan, you are probably going to get more "yes" responses than you would with asking the same question about Venom. There has been only 1 Venom solo movie so far. There has been 3 Wolverine solo movies. Venom has been in 2 films total. Wolverine has been in 9 movies in total (I believe). Wolverine has been a lot more films, cartoons, and media in general than Venom has, so I don't think ASM #300 will get to a point like IH #181 has. Will it have huge gains in the next few years. I think that depends on how Venom does in the comic market and media. If Sony goes for a big push of Venom in media, then I would say possibly. Also, I think Venom needs a bigger (better) push in comics.
  24. Congratulations to Joe as this has been a long time coming. I'm also very glad he is still planning on doing conventions. It's always a joy to see him and talk to him, as he always has a smile on his face. If anyone has not met Joe at a convention, I highly recommend it, it is always an honor and pleasure!
