  1. It is common for collectors to price themselves out of a collectible field, to reach a point where the pieces coming in have to be of a certain quality (and over time it becomes cost prohibitive). At that time collectors will typically transition to a new collectible that is cheaper and more fun.
  2. I have a similar issue with my acid free at time of manufacture boards, most local LCSs use Southern Hobby. However, for me it's more environmental than anything. If I leave my boards out in the humidity for a few days they will become convex. My corrective measure is to keep them bagged until ready to use and pressed down under a stack of books. Or bag them all up in one sitting and store them flat in a box top. Hope it helps in the interim.
  3. He clarified this ahead of the big 2020 signing event, but he signs just about anything Venom because it's a character he created. And he'll sign just about anything he's done art in, even if it's obscure. He doesn't sign spoof covers and a handful of books for personal reasons. More info- https://www.cgccomics.com/news/article/7862/ It is interesting because in 2017 the only Spawn blanks were the 265s and the Mexican 240 (now we have Spawn Kills Everyone Too, Spawn 300, and Spawn 301)
  4. Cool book! You can tell based on the dates that McFarlane signed first it's lucky he signed low. For the big 2020 signing event he just did, I saw a lot of blank books come out with massive signatures right in the middle of the blank.
  5. With underground comix, one of my collecting focii, the labels evolve and change over time as new information is uncovered by CGC or added by collector request. Old label books have few to no notes on them. Take a look at a few examples of your book on feeBay current / sold auctions... If there is something you want on the label, request it and see (they likely won't honor it but they might).
  6. @Skylath I got fed up trying to buy Spawns locally about a year ago. I buy my Spawn comics online from Things from Another World. I order the covers as they become available in Previews and they hold my books and ship them about once per month. I also joined a Facebook group to try and follow news on some of the rarer Con / Store exclusive books.
  7. What's not to like!? Comics. Good. Slabs. Good. Meat. Gooooooood
