  1. About as long as it takes to read a Modern Comic.
  2. At least with an encapsulated coin, you can read EVERYTHING, unlike an encapsulated comic.

    Moderns that are heating up on ebay!

    Yeah, I am a little surprised at the IH #1 and #2 prices in the secondary market. It's a decent read, but I don't think it sustains.

    Got a comic room??? Showcase it here!

    Just a thought, paint the walls? I find a darker color on the walls really help the room pop more, once you start putting things on it.

    Adventures in the Dollar Box

    Found this in my LCS dollar box. Kind of cool being a Golden Age comic and all. For those not in the know- Major Inapak The Space Ace was a one-shot give-away comic used as a promotional piece for a vitamin fortified chocolate drink called INAPAK.
  7. Is it possible to come up with a negative number?

    Chicago comic shop to be given away

    Oh man, I think I was there once a looooonnnnnng time ago. I think they had sports cards as well. They had 2 Chicago Cubs signing autographs that evening- Jaime Moyer and the great Andre Dawson.

    Why people hate most modern books

    I went and found WINGS on Hulu. Same writers as Cheers, with an amazing cast. Funny in the 1990's and still funny today.
