  1. It would be an interesting case study to see how many people actually READ Modern comics. I have 10 a month on my pull list, that I read each and every one. I like to keep up with the characters. I would venture to say that a good percentage (30%-50%) is not reading. Simply buying variants or buying and filing away as runs. I have no data to back this up. Merely gauging responses to people on the Modern boards who ask about current titles with only a handful of responses. You start a thread about a variant, and you get 20, 30, 40 responses. You ask about a story line and you get crickets.

    Immortal Hulk

    Definitely more horror/supernatural vibe. Interested to see where this goes or how this 'immortal' thing pertains to Banner taking an arrow in the head.

    Some kind of a new record for Marvel Super-Heroes #13

    They aren't talking about this one silly....
  4. Plenty of other ways to 'preserve' a comic book. Don't let that piece of hard plastic lull you into a sense of kevlar security.

    Is Mile High a reference to their prices?

    I'm confused. Isn't this listing the same NM copy? https://www.ebay.com/itm/BATTLE-ANGEL-ALITA-VIZ-MANGA-1992-Series-1-Near-Mint-Comics-Book/283292320154?hash=item41f589c19a:g:Wb8AAOSwG1JcCOYX:rk:22:pf:0 If so.....then.....

    When to settle....

    When should you settle? When being homeless means getting a 9.8.
  8. I think I read somewhere once that most Marvel and DC's hovered in the 250,000-500,000 range. The better selling titles on the higher end of that spectrum (ASM for example).

    Best Way To Find Buyers that.....

    Ironic you have no interest in selling to a 'dealer', but your ideal scenario pretty much makes you a dealer. Try ebay. If you are not computer literate (but here you are) set up at a show. If that is too much work, put them on Craigslist and ask for reasonably close what the books are actually worth and be firm in your asking price to weed out the dealer.
