  1. I was just thinking it's not only a time to be picking stuff up cheap, but also grabbing new stuff that looks to have potential. Of course, if the parent company decides that there's not much to gain from the publishing arm of the company, everything will go south.
  2. There's a rule that they must be in the highest traffic area in the store.
  3. Crazy how little that storyline goes for. If Bane is Batman's Venom, then Legends of the Dark Knight 16 is Bane's ASM 252.
  4. Funny, I went to Midtown last week at open. Since I was passing by that way later in the day (2 hour public transportation trip to get the vaccine), I stopped by to grab another but they were sold out (around 5pm).
  5. So you're saying that NFT artwork is the "Name a Star After Someone! It'll be recorded in book form in the Library of Congress Copyright Office" of the 2020s?
  6. When I was doing eBay results searches to update that Comics Since 1988 that are worth $$$ thread, I found that a good number of The Long Halloween issues (I know that the book you sold wasn't technically part of that run, but looks similar) were a bit pricey. I may send mine off to be graded.
  7. I'm the right age to think that either of those things were possible.
  8. If you had given me the choices of a '70s movie or a Zach Galifianakis movie, I would have guessed the latter.
  9. Funny; I've seen this gif plenty of times but never had any idea where it was from. My guess was that it was from some relatively recent comedy that was parodying a Grizzly Adams-type character
  10. Moon Girl & Devil Dinosaur #1 has one 9.6 sale over 250 (BIN). Auction results have been less than the threshold, but prices of 9.8s suggest there could be more over it coming.
  11. For what it's worth, I think it was issue 2 that has a Spawn cameo at the end, with a full appearance in 3.
  12. As mentioned, limited numbers of a new cover is going to draw attention. As for the "readily available," while there was a lot of early hype, I imagine, since this is Boom, and not Marvel, DC, or Image, there would have been a number of stores that ordered more conservatively, and sold out. Of course there's plenty of stores that went big and still have them, but if you like picking your books up in the shop and all of the stores around you are sold out of 1st, you're going to get the reprint.
  13. If it makes anyone feel better about their chances, I got 25 for 25 in a prescreen submitted in December.
  14. The Wolverine/Cyclops/Iceman cover has the pinup that includes Omega Red, and some people are picking that up as well.
  15. I totally understand that. If I ran an LCS, I'd probably limit everything to 1/customer the week of release to give everyone a chance to get a copy. Other than pre-orders, of course.
  16. Just checked eBay and a copy of Tankers has already sold for $100. I got to Midtown Comics as they opened this morning. Had to wait on line to get in. By the time I was in the door around 8:30, all of their stores were already sold out of Nottingham #2 (they were limiting to 1/customer) and Rise #1. There were a lot of books they were limiting, and not just cuz Bad Idea said so.
  17. We know now that the bandana was Bishop's covid mask.
  18. I'm surprised I haven't seen anyone mention the name on the uniform that Zemo stole when they broke him out of prison.
