  1. Well, 2,400 posts are enough I think and we've come to the end of the road. I hope the info on the pence books helps a future investigator and, who knows, someone might even read the Morlar thread properly and realise why it all went wrong. I had a lot of fun along the way though, and even made a board buddy or two. It was supposed to stop with the bee story, but nothing ever quite goes to plan does it. Anyway, nature's a calling so for the final time......
  2. I agree @rjrjr (hello again). I suspect it's the nearest we'll ever get to the spirit and mood of the early comics. #3 could have been better. I might have said this before, but I thought there was a fantastic 4 (no pun intended) to be made with MJ being killed at the end. Love or loathe her portrayal, to see Kristen bite the bullet in the right fashion, after 4 films, would have packed a real emotional punch. I have the plot and -script in my head. A shame it'll never see the light of day.
  3. Thanks @rjrjr but these are scans of books I used to own alas. Sold up a while back, long story. I do like the foreign editions and may well have gone down that road had I continued. I had a lot of the UK Spider-Man Comics Weekly back in the day. A full run of all 666 of those would've been fun. What are you completing in?
  4. That's right, and you do. Which is why only Greggy likes you.
  5. Oh well done @jsilverjanet, you're finally up where you belong! I take it @Architecht finally came through with the 8,000 like Wedding present then? What a wonderful end to the honeymoon. It's great to see a Seasoned Veteran at the top of the Leaderboard, making good use of those additional likes that those pesky 'Members' can only dream of enjoying. It just goes to show that, with the love of @greggy, and the unqualified support of the Absentee Landlord your every wish can come true. What a fairy tale in every sense. Again, my very best wishes go to the happy couple
  6. It's one of the reasons I dislike the CGC process. Judging a book on structural integrity alone, and ignoring eye appeal, means you can be disappointed with a 9.4 book when you find it miswrapped or miscut etc. My ASM 121 is a 9.0 and it looks so much better than my 122 which is a 9.4. I find that odd. So I recognise that CGC and CVA have their place, but I prefer the old way of judging your books yourself. Offer me a CGC with a CVA and I'll take it. But resto aside, I don't require the expertise of either company. In CGC's case, I personally find the subjectivity element on grading coupled with the absence of eye appeal rating alarming when a one point move can have such a huge financial impact.
  7. That's more or less what I was saying earlier. CVA doesn't grade the grader. They just judge the eye appeal and composition. If CGC gave a view on eye appeal alongside the structural grade, CVA would be out of business. As long as CGC ignores the composition / appearance, CVA will have a market.
  8. Probably. The eyes are at least. Pains me to say it but I really dont like the look of it all so far. Hopefully I'll be proven wrong.
  9. OK, so we're all agreed then. CVA is a waste of money @Bigsexy. Don't touch it.
  10. I dropped one of these the other day. Some bloke said "you can't leave that Lion there".
  11. Now that wouldn't do my grapes any good at all
  12. Shit
  13. Lot's of CVA fans in tonight 😃
