    12th Annual March Madness CGC Grading Tournament - Signup

    Oops! I think I posted this in the wrong spot. -- Hi guys! I had no idea this would be starting soon! Isn't it still 2018?!? - thanks for giving me a heads up on IG comicquant! While I SO enjoy playing, and you guys are a blast, I need to sit this one out. The day job has me chained to a desk and I am having to schedule date nights to hang out with my books when I can (and the poor hubby is getting sloppy third tier date nights 🤣😂🤣) I would probibly end up making everyone wait until the very last second to turn stuff in, if I got it in at all, and that wouldn't be cool! I will definitely be keeping up with how you guys are doing and I'm excited to see who takes me out! (Can I keep the tiara?!?) Good luck everyone!!♡♡ I'm rooting for you!! ♡♡

    The WE LOVE Stan Lee thread!

    Depends on the circumstances. This is from 3 years ago and my heart is sad to see how things have gone down hill lately, but that is what age will do to you. I got to spend most of the day with him and it was a lot of fun. Even then you could tell the age was starting to take it's toll (but he was certainly still a feisty little gentleman!) Max was pushy yet understanding. I didn't see Max do anything inappropriate the whole day and I was literally 6in from Stan the whole time. He could have been a little more understanding of Stan's age, sure, but they were trying to get through the hundreds of guys standing in line wanting signatures before Stan just couldn't do it anymore and Stan understood and was down with that drill. They've done it many times before. I do think that now is past the time for that to continue. I've watched his new handlers at work and I'm not one bit happy with the situation. I'm very thankful I got the opportunity that I did and I wish that the last conversations in Stan's sunset days were regarding how happy he is and how wonderful he is doing instead of what they are -- conversations about the various sad ways he's being taken advantage of. Does anyone know if his daughter is just rich and stupid or actually mentally challenged? These things would never happen to my daddy, and if there was any idea that something like this was happening I would have someone buried in my backyard REAL quick!
  6. Thanks guys!! And thanks BUTM & Sckao for putting it on again! It was fun playing with you guys!! Would this be an appropriate time to ask if anyone has a Miss Fury 2 or 3 that they be willing to part with? I'm looking for a beater copy, nothing too fancy, but unrestored & complete
  7. All right guys, thanks for the pressure! It really helped ???? I have reluctantly entered my grades after changing them 1500 times over the last 2 days - and with two and a half hours to spare! ??

    Eclectic odd mix of various complete/incomplete fun GA/SA reading materials (most are complete but one or two may be missing a page - Can't remember and didn't page count again.) I am even including the 3D glasses so that you can read the coverless 3D Batman!! ?? To be mailed free within US & will cover up to $10 shipping outside the US.
  9. Luckily, being authentically geeky is now in style! If you would have asked me 15 years ago I would have said it would never be true! ??? I'm kind of digging being cool but unfortunately think it may just be a phase in the world and I will be uncool yet again in another 15 years ?? (although, with the price of books being what they are now that everybody & their dog are into books, I wouldn't mind a slight drop so I can start hoarding what I love AND eating again! ?)
  10. ?? I am definitely a her- (at least last time I looked down in the shower ?) I may not have much of a board presence ( which can be said for a lot of people since the new board started apparently) but I do have a comic presence Mainly I am on facebook comic groups and IG (Love anna on FB and annaeloveishere on IG.) While its a little odd that I have to explain my gender (how many of you are REALLY boys?!?! Huuumm?!?! ???) I get that it is part of being a female in the hobby! Im a GA collector mainly but have a decently broad collection of awesomeness. I love everything done by females (specifically (June) Tarpe Mills.) GGA does very little for me (to me it looks like Liefeld art, huge chest & tiny feet -but boys don't complain about that when it comes to GGA!! ???) but enjoy bondage. I am looking over the books (again) and am going to take my time on this round, (even though usually the first guess is the way to go) but if anyone wants to quiz me on all things female- I am down!
  11. Dang! Is that true? Well I guess it would have to be or I would have lost the whole thing. Thanks again for putting this on! It really is a lot of fun!
