  1. That's pretty much it. Controversy helps. I have to admit its a very nice cover so the high end variant collectors will chase it. What might be funny is if they company decides to print some more …… and I don't mean a 2nd print lol. Wouldn't be the first time the "print to order" rears its ugly head.
  2. Okay makes sense. Its on the right side of the front cover about an inch in all the way down the cover. You should be able to see the difference from the left side which is whiter to the right side which is darker. The dustshadow makes sense because the line is almost perfectly straight down the side of the book on the right side.
  3. Sorry to hear of your loss especially a comic book collector. Do you have the time to do this right or do you want them gone fast is really what you need to ask yourself. Since they aren't just comics you will need someone who specializes in several areas if you want them all gone at once. Without doing a lot of work you will expect to received a fraction of the true value. If the collection is valuable then the more time you put in the more monetary reward you will reap. You can also advertise it on craigslist, here and other places and you will get dealers to come look at it and make offers as well. Good luck.
  4. Yeah I am just looking for some idea here. Whats the different between a dust shadow and a tan line. Most of the time I see the tan line on a back cover this one is odd its on the front. I don't think you will be able to see on a cell phone even if I increase, but all try. Well the pic is the max size I will try a cell phone pic tomorrow along the edge.
  5. I think that's the best they could have done with what they had left. I was satisfied with it, yet sad.
  6. I have had only one chance to buy the X-Men 11 V2 and it was a VF copy at the time and I passed. I regret it now. The rest I have either seen or found a few copies of each not many, but more then X-Men 11.
  7. Don't know about how to grade this one. There is a vertical line about an inch wide on the side of this book that looks like a tan line. At first I thought it was a stain, but its too neat. Assuming a couple of spine tics on that back cover how do I grade this one?
  8. You know with Nicka running a sales thread he is going to be occupied he might miss out on some books in other threads. Breaks my heart I am hear all night thank you
  9. MA 97 will end up being referred to as the 1st appearance just from a lack of understanding comic book 1st appearances. I understand completely the viewpoint that Darkhawk 1 is the official first appearance, but when the character appears on the cover and is discussed inside it makes it a lot more difficult. MA 12 is a really good example of just a preview book. MA97 I think has a little more going for it and I can understand both the confusion and sellers who claim its a first appearance.
  10. Just a reminder as well lets be nice in this thread. The copper thread just got locked. Lets all remember why we have this thread.
  11. If it was another book I would pay attention, but that book just doesn't seem important to me. It will be interesting if the show goes the way of Iron Fist as well. But for now sell, sell, sell.
