  1. Can anyone help me identify that golden age comic book issue where there is a young teenage boy in bed dreaming of comics? It's a classic cover. Thanks for the help.
  2. You watch cinema and Netflix, and most films come and go. Rarely do they stick with you, engraved in your mind; Joker is one of them. I think this is primarily because of how dark the picture was and the ambiguity in meaning. The film masterfully leaves certain aspects of the plot open to higher interpretation.
  3. Some of the songs in the film I will never think of the same way again. Much like A Clockwork Orange.
  4. Also is Joker the 1/2 brother of Bruce Wayne? Have there been stores written about this?
  5. This is the kind of film you don't want there to be a sequel. This was standalone piece. It should be appreciated as such and kept that way.
  6. It was a great one, for sure. I've been now two nights in a row. I have a plot hole kind of question, though. Wayne is only a boy in the film and Joker is what in his 30's or 40's? Of course, Wayne and Joker become nemesis years later when Wayne becomes Batman, but doesn't that put Joker in his sixties? What's the story behind this?
  7. the judgment is meaningless if you think both our political and judicial systems are completely broken.
  8. It seems to me like the OP got ripped off by the storage company. It's a petty scam; the con makes a list of new renters, Googles their names then breaks into lockers with found information about wealthy clients or postings on social media. I would most certainly get surveillance footage including the parking lots to see if there were any license plates, getaway vehicles or accomplices I would also get the names of all employees associated with the storage unit and run background checks for outstanding warrants and prior arrests. Heist of this magnitude likely isn't their first rodeo.
  9. It's a flat 2.7% globally plus they waive the 30 cent transaction fee. The PayPal 2.9% obviously goes up if the funds are international.
  10. I'm a lot less hesitant to pull the trigger on a high dollar book when it comes to being CGC graded. So yes. CGC, however, is not full proof either as evidenced by the Ewert micro trimming fiasco. Most deals happen online these days, but I make it an effort to know who I'm buying from, their return policy and most importantly their reputation.
  11. https://www.ecommercebytes.com/2018/09/08/more-info-for-sellers-as-ebay-kicks-off-new-managed-payments/ Breaking news to me, though I saw this coming with the eBay Paypal relinquishment several years ago. I noticed when purchasing eBay branded shipping supplies this afternoon from their official store that I could only check out using a credit card — no PayPal. This is eBay's new branded merchant account terminal which is different than Authorize.net or any other merchant API tie-ins eBay's offered in the past. I like it, and reminds me a lot of Stripe as you can save your payment method which certainly streamlines the process and allows for quicker checkout. My question for prospective buyers, would you still prefer to use PayPal? All else equal would you buy from a seller that offered PayPal versus the new eBay credit card terminal? I don't think in the foreseeable future eBay will totally abandon the PayPal integration, but they may not make it a preferred method of payment which for sellers could lead to one having to enter in tracking numbers for shipments, filing disputes and offering proof of delivery separately.
  12. I think you have it the other way around, for most people, it's buy the book NOT the label which is hard to do if the thing is slabbed. The problem with PGX is their restoration check (if you can even call it that). They're known widely around the hobby for putting unrestored labels on restored books which has in some cases cost buyers thousands of dollars. I've never bought a PGX book because I always thought books in the PGX holders were hiding something, i.e., restoration, being overgraded, pages missing, major tears, etc. I work too hard for my money and couldn't know in good conscience I'd likely be buying something where there was a caveat or something I did not know was wrong with it.
  13. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00317ERM6/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1 I've also heard good things about Prisma. Have you used them? In this set, you get eight assorted tips. I like the signature on the Action Comics you posted but I'm looking for something finer and rounder opposed to brush. I've included something similar signature-wise I'm looking for below.
  14. Kav, on these if the pen moves quickly across the surface of the paper and you do not blot it do you have to worry about bleedthrough?
