    Moderns that are heating up on ebay!

    Invincible issues have been great sellers for me for years. Issues 1 to 12 do very well along with several other issues in the run. I picked up another 10 issues for $1 to $3 this week. I expect nice bump for awhile when it come out it has a built in audience and it's done by Kirkman who has his audience as well

    Books you just cant find in the Wild

    Here is a cool one. Another X-Men 304 Hologram Error. Only this one is almost completely black with just a little blue.

    The dealer knew it was a variant, but didn't know much more. This one I paid a little more for than I usually do as it was a nice NM copy. He told me in 20 years of dealing it was only the 2nd copy he had seen. I believe as I think I have only found 2 in 20 years of looking. The Silver X-Men continues to evade me. I had a chance to buy one 10 years ago and passed.

    Spawn issues in the 190s are doing very well for me lately. I am still selling the Superman 7 Walmart Giant well. Green Arrow 32 Metal Tie in sells less then day for me each time. Metal is seeing an uptick as DC lays out plans for a Villains year. Hack and Slash has been on the upsurge for me as far as sells. Eternals and Ms Marvel(2008) series have been a staple of sales for me now for 3 months with consistent sales. What if Conan issues are in demand. White Widow is still a $15 to $20 regular cover sell Young Avengers 1 sells over $50 now in high grade raw as well as many other early YA issues are selling well. Avengers 343 is very hot currently. Nothing earth shattering here this time. Just sales.

    My brother just texted me telling me he liked the 1st two episodes of Umbrella Academy. I am on the fence about Exciting. It looks interesting, but we have had quite a few companies with new universes that have failed.

    Well you can trade me for the next time you find another X-Men 302 blank box.

    Batman who Laughs

    You know its going to be an odd year. DC is going to focus on villains so in the short term less then a year its a great book. Long term I wouldn't hold it unless I see something this year that changes my viewpoint. So from a DC point of view villains are a good short term investment this year, but long term I don't see them holding value unless all the speculators stick around long term when the movie money runs out.

    I wish you would post here more often. I like the short precise answers. It eliminates all the hyperbole and other odd viewpoints on something.

    Moderns that are COOLING on EBAY...

    Yeah that book as really cooled off, but if Bucky replaces Cap look for this book to go back up. If you believe it may be time to buy a few.

    Punisher DVD Inserts. Never saw one of these before.
  12. Is that a stretch? Um, hell yes. Is Superior Spider-Man the fist appearance of Spider-Man? Well, it's the first time he's superior, so yes? Yes it is a stretch. G+ sometimes just throws things out there for discussion purposes. After UXM 164 and AG9/10 there isn't a lot I look for except late Ms Marvel issues from 2008 and her GS issue for Chewie. I mean there is nothing wrong with picking up the other books for $1, but the above are the only ones I look for my two cents.

    Probably because they are pretty hard to find. Great find.
