  1. I've always viewed it that way, mainly because the GA sandman character just doesn't resonate today. Still, I've always wanted a copy of the book, and thought I'd finally post a WTB notice on the buyer forum. I could see the Spectre eventually making a big splash in the DC movie universe, or on one of the shows on CW. The guy with the suit, tie, hat and gas mask? No. But hey, I love the character myself.
  2. Will consider any complete copy. Preference for a restored, reasonably affordable copy. Serious inquiries welcomed.

    What is currently the hottest genre?

    Prize and Super-Mystery go for multiples of guide in every grade now. Ditto Four Favorites, Lightning, Sure Fire. Lots of these books are basically impossible to find now.

    My guess is that the duck books and photo cover westerns will never be of great interest again. Now grab up as many as you can, because they'll probably go thermo soon.

    What is currently the hottest genre?

    Don't know if they're the absolute "hottest" GA books now, but a lot of the Centaur and Fox books can still bring 10, 20, even 50 times guide. Try finding, say, Amazing Man 25 or 26, in ANY condition. Try finding Fantastic 3 (Well they're actually easy to FIND, since all existing copies now belong to one person).
  6. The early (pre-Archie) run of this title seems weird to me, with the first few issues being less highly prized than #7-21? Anyway, it appears that the #7 to 21 issues have really gotten hot in the recent past. I just got blown away on a blue 3.5 #13 in the current Hake's auction, it's at $1500 and still going. Is it the bondage/torture covers on #7-21 that have made them inflate so much? They're starting to catch up with the early Archie issues of Pep.
  7. I'm looking for a complete, good condition 1960s comic spinner rack. Roughly 90% of them out there seem to be the "Hey Kids-Comics" racks. I'd consider other racks as well. Thx!
  8. Anyone familiar with this particular seller, bought from them before? Has a small amount of books, but some relatively big/expensive items. Thx.

    Incredible Hulk #181 - is it *that* red-hot?

    Prices on the book will never go anywhere but up. That's your "reality".

    Silver age comics that are heating up

    Doom Patrol? Why would that be hot now?
  11. I still absolutely love looking at each new edition of the OCBPG, even though it's miles from accurate and always has been/will be. What SA books should we expect to have made big moves in this year's edition?
  12. Another HUGE factor that's positively impacting the hobby: New foreign collectors and investors. Comic book collecting/investing was largely confined to the US and Canada until relatively recently. It's exploding all over the world now. Of course, the superhero media explosion has helped fuel this, the Marvel cinematic universe in particular.
  13. B&V 40 has been spiking for a long time now, and is still doing so. Not sure exactly why. The cover is cheesecake lite, but really no more so than some other early issues of the title.
  14. Last year the Overstreet guide took a few tentative steps toward reflecting market reality on some GA books. Still, it's almost comical how inaccurate they remain. Too many specific examples to cite, but basically every Centaur and Fox book is undervalued by 3X-20X or more. Some obvious breakout books are ignored. One example I just noticed is Betty & Veronica 40, not even broken out in the last Overstreet, it'll go for at least 20X guide or more in most any grade.
  15. Probably ten bucks? I've had my Weird Mysteries 5 since 1980, that's what I paid for it.
