    Moderns that are heating up on ebay!

    I guess we are getting pretty far off topic now, but when does a new comic become a back issue? And I think the tax only applies if the shop puts it on the shelf with the new periodicals? Comics in back issue bins aren't subject to the tax? Is that completely wrong? What are laws even...

    I was told that if the price is marked up on new periodicals, then they get taxed differently or something? Obviously this is a pittance if the book is marked up from cover to twenty bucks. Maybe it's just NYC or NY State tax rules? Also, no the shop cannot hand over comics before Wednesday. I assume 12:01 a.m. counts since Midtown Comics has their midnight release parties once in a while.

    Any body ever go to "The Dump"? Find anything?

    My grandma used to take us cousins around looking for old bottles. We found tons. She discovered a bunch of really old dumps, like from the late 19th century, that were basically just out in the woods by the time we came along and we'd go through there like proper archaeologists. Good times.

    Yep they are sold out now too, crazy. Glad I got one. Wasn't going to pay ebay prices for it, but definitely wanted one.

    Just got back from my local and they had two copies. They still have the second copy. Might order a 2nd at MCS though, thx for the heads up.

    that's nuts. I'm going straight to Midtown tomorrow to get my copy. I assume they'll have it as 1 per, at least I really hope they do now.

    PGX terminates entire staff?

    Dear Grantley, stop derailing this otherwise hilarious thread with your personal comedic issues.

    This week in your collection?

    They really have done a good job with them so far. The art has been very nice and the presentation is clean

    I loved it. What a blast of a film! I'm not sure how anyone can say its not needed to watch at least a few of the movies leading up to this. Other than going deeper into Thanos, there was almost no recapping or back story for any other characters. It was start to finish a slugfest. If someone isn't familiar with the other films and relationships between characters, they are gonna be lost here. I think they can still enjoy Infinity War, its great action and drama. Can't wait for the finale! And I am READY for some Captain Marvel

    Hunting for keys hidden in poorly described lots on ebay will never get old.

    Should lightly dry clean this book?

    Who are you calling a "web warrior"? rofl no need to get hostile, dude. I just think you should enjoy the book as is. But you do you! Be sure to sign your work after, though. Makes it more official.
