  1. For me it comes down to whether or not you’d want a beloved member of your family selling something for $ 800.00 only to find out it was worth $ 50,000.00+. I wouldn’t want my mother being the seller in that type of hypothetical sale. Oh, and I wouldn’t want the buyer in my hypothetical sale teaching ethics to my child either.
  2. Touch base with them. You might be surprised by the answer that you are provided.
  3. In your conversations with the auction house personnel, did any of the bring up where they have a seen a softening of the OA and comic book market(s) over the last year?
  4. Your post is spot on. Saw it yesterday morning. The animation is off the charts but they should have 1) left well enough alone and 2) thought about putting such and adult theme/message/philosophical question in a kid's movie. I asked our 6 year old if he'd want to see Toy Story 4 again or the Secret Life of Pets 2 again and he said "Max, I wanna see Max." I have no doubt the movie will make tons of money for Disney.
  5. I'm lost. Yep, Stan had a story. A story that Miller threw a huge wrench in with Matt's dad becoming a drunk who beat Matt, Stick being introduced, and turning Matt into an antihero. Matt evolved but his origin and what he got turned into are nothing like Stan's and Bill's starting point. The same can be said about what Kelly and McGuinness did with Deadpool. Please note that I enjoy the Deadpool that Kelly and McGuinness brought forth. That look and writing of the book are Deadpool to me. Just as Miller's Daredevil is Daredevil to me.
  6. That can be said about every character. They all evolve. Yes, Deadpool was shaped by Kelly and McGuinness. He's been shaped by just about everyone who wrote and drew the character. To not recognize that is like saying that Bill Everett doesn't exist because Miller made Daredevil the character we all associate him being today.
  7. Rob, like many creators in today's comic collecting world, has figured out that some collectors put a perceived value on a comic if the creator signs it and then it gets slabbed. More than likely he's trying to figure out at what price people will no longer stand in line to get his signature. If people keep paying then he's gonna keep charging more for it and add any additional upcharge those same collectors are willing to pay.
  8. Think Geek has been running a moving sale promo. I picked up a Fallout 76 Pip-Boy 2000 Construction Kit and a Plasma Pistol for 50% off. The Fallout 76 Pip-Boy 2000 Construction Kit has sold out.
  9. I'd think that the OA work for the Spawn ad that appeared in Rust #1 and then became the cover of Spawn #2 might have a shot at the title of the OA Holy Grail for comic ads.
  10. Yep, this is spot on. My positive experiences of using the Comic Link platform far outweigh any negative ones I may have gone through. My experience has been that Comic Link has always been super easy to communicate with, and buy/sell items through.
  11. That's a very sweet Sale prelim. Very iconic prelim from Miller.
  12. Mike Zeck and Eddy Barrows have produced some great prelim covers.
  13. Thanks! With the above in mind, then about 90% of my collection is published.
  14. How do prelims of published covers and published inner pages get defined?
