  1. please let me know if you have one for sale and your price. thanks
  2. if a polybag can transfer a line onto the book id hate to see what this does to a book 20 years later. no way is this not an issue for books. just another example of a company not standing by their product and making corrections.
  3. I always try to do full runs whenever possible. I have definitely over 100 full runs. largest though is probably spawn but that's a relatively easy one to obtain.
  4. grabbed these today. im an old school 80s wrestling fan but not a fan at all these days and im a huge heman fan so just couldn't resist. they are so ridiculous that they are cool
  5. I just got this spidey from Walmart on Saturday. I don't buy the alternate colored logo versions like the xforce shown but I will get all the different covers like the black cat. anyways I think this one is all new. its at least not used for issue 33 but does anyone know if this was just taken from another issue which they have done in the past. love the cover regardless.
  6. id just ignore it but I have had dumb enough buyers to counter offer my price with a higher price which I obviously accepted and they paid. ive also had several occasions where they send a best offer higher than the buy it now price. I don't understand their logic but the extra money is nice.
  7. just curious how sales were and what attendance was like. I normally go but I along with a lot of other people I know are all going to keystone this weekend so skipped out.
  8. im watching and think this season is pretty lousy. I really thought the show was great and hit a stride when they did the big re-cast but has since slowly died back down. this latest episode I thought may have been the worst episode of the entire franchise. was extremely boring. it felt like more of a recap for people who have never seen the show before. and can we get over this whole leave a box thing, we get it, it doesn't need to drag out and be the entire premise of the show. you can leave boxes while doing a bigger story line to keep continuity but to keep it as a main focus is just dull.
  9. I just won a captain marvel 18 last week the same way, so I guess it does happen quite often. I will say as a seller I have also been seeing more and more slow payments.
  10. ill buy a low grade book as a placeholder. if I never get a chance to buy a better copy or the book sky rockets in price at least I have a copy for the run. this has happened a few times where a book skyrocketed and I became ecstatic to have bought the lower grade as at the time I wouldn't have even been able to afford that if I waited. then if you do get a nicer copy you simply sell the lesser one and recoup some of the cost. bottom line is either way you at least have the book.
  11. for the same reasons one cover A book that is printed at 20,000 copies goes to $50 and another cover A book printed at the same amount is found in dollar bins.
  12. I just ran out at lunch and confirmed the exact quantities that were listed above. I picked up the 3 black cats and a thanos. I like when they have totally different covers and not just the changed logo color but decided on the thanos anyways.
  13. I would never buy a book off a dealer if they made me pay tax on a cash purchase. id tell them to take a hike. now for a credit card transaction im shocked if they DONT add tax and that is fine. whether you have a tax ID or not doesn't mean you actually report the tax. like someone else said like waiters, dealers don't report 90% of their income since theres no way to track how many books were actually sold at a show. they report enough to make it look worth while and to pay for the booth but the rest just goes right in the pocket. all credit card transactions must be reported because there is a trace. this goes for anything in life. if you never asked a maintenance guy or laborer doing work on your house for a cash discount you are wasting a lot of money because they almost always give deals knowing they are making the money under the table and don't have to report the tax from a cashed check or card which can be traced. you can pull this for any small family business as well like landscapers, photographers, electricians, etc.
  14. def a very awkward cover. is this a retailer exclusive or just a late cover add through previews?
