    Conan Comics

    Foom! The entire book is all about Conan. Here are a few pages.
  5. thanks for the lack luster early reviews all! You help me to confirm that Disney has no clue how to make Star Wars films and I am right to boycott this franchise until further notice. Will not be seeing this film.

    I love the advert for the plastic figures. I had some of them when I was a kid.

  11. it also looks like some color touch to me. Above Harley's head and under the Batman TM. Is a crease/line and I think I see color touch there.

    It is like Christmas when you open one of the boxes and find something you want.

    Pgm is this seriously a 9.8

    a CGC 9.8 should not have such a major defect as a bindery tear though. It also seems to only be allowed in books that are manufactured with lousy paper that tends to tear when folded. So to me it appears they are picking and choosing when it is allowed.

    Pgm is this seriously a 9.8

    the real question is: if they print 10,000 copies of a book and 10 of them do not have any bindery tears but the other 9,990 do have them, is the bindery defect then always ignored when grading because for the most part the books always have them? And furthermore: how does CGC know that the books with bindery defects will all have them? There may be copies out there that do not have this defect. My opinion: when it arrives from the manufacturer with a defect it should always be considered in the grade. In other words all CGC 9.8 books should appear to look the same.
  15. I bid on a few books but did not win anything. Oh well. I am hoping someone here on the boards is the owner of the Jungle Comics 11 CGC 7.0...really wanted that book but clearly did not want it enough
