  1. No...they still have to get the Gauntlet. And dispose of it. The danger is still there once Thanos realizes he's been tricked.
  2. OK...we’re far enough in the Avengers Infinity War run that I’m going to give my theory on what happened. Stop here if you don’t want the movie spoiled.... When Iron Man and Spider-Man was trying to grab the Gauntlet off Thanos and Mantis couldn’t put Thanos to sleep, Starlord acted like a complete jerk trying to interrogate Thanos about the whereabouts of Gamora. My take? Starlord was trying to distract Thanos while Stark replaced one of the stones, probably the Reality Stone, with a fake one; generated by Stark’s new nanotechnology armor. Thanos bailed quickly when Strange too easily just gave up his stone and immediately got in a fight to get Vision’s stone. When he got what he thought was the last stone, Thor went ballistic on him before Thanos snapped his fingers and half the universe died. Thanos then immediately bailed out. Thanos never realized he still didn’t have all the stones when he did the deed and Dr Strange conjured up a massive spell, with the help of the Reality stone, to make it look like all the heroes died. Thanos was tricked and all those who “died” are probably sitting in one of Strange’s dimensions before he brings them back. That’s what I think happened...

    Batman 227 or TOD 10?

    TOD #10. Jim
  5. I have comics I bagged and boarded in the late 80s. They are as fresh today as when I boarded them. This whole fallacy of the comics degrade over time and need to change every 3-5 years is garbage. I've bought multiple comics in yellowed bags but the comics within were great with white pages. This whole myth of the bags and board will harm your comics is greatly overstated. Mylars are great...no doubt as you don't have to change the appearance of your issues when pulled out of the box when viewed in the bag. But as far as being better to protect the actual comic? Hype to sell either more bag/boards or Mylars. Jim
  6. That's great data. And it's is working for you. But for the mass it's not. Comics aren't an at sustainable forum anymore. And for anyone wanting to start a business its not as comics as they're majority business but other endeavors. The toy and card business rules now and even those will fall given time. Online gaming is stealing these folks and before long, and it is going to happen quickly, you won't have anyone in your shops. Jim
  7. wThe number of dealers weren't advertised. Hell, I didn't even know before the show opened. The year before they had four to five dealers. I was disappointed because I wanted to see what others had. But ultimately I was the only one with comics and, frankly, not many that attended were interested in what I brought. My German shows drew much more interested customers. But that was 10 years ago. There were many other dealers there as well though. Jim
  8. Also, Pensacon, the big convention in the area, last year had one, ONE, dealer with anything considered vintage comics. And no one was at his booth. I actually set up a collection booth at another, smaller, show in Pensacola last Aug. I was the only seller with comics in the whole place. Did OK but was surprised I was the only one with comics to sell at a comics show. Jim
  9. My opinion? Don't open one. Comics are losing their audience and frankly have out priced their customers. The only reason comics shops stay open in my area of the woods (North Florida Panhandle) is for card games and D&D type activities. They make the majority of their money there. Comics have become an after thought and their inventory has shrunk according. Jim
  10. Here's a blast from the past... Jim
  11. How do I get them to display? Jim how d I get them to display?
