    AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR (SPOILERS)

    I had taken a break for a,long while from any more superhero films and most tv shows so IJust watched it for the first time (on Netflix).. I could not believe they could integrate so many characters so successfully and tell a great story. The sequel will get me back into the theater!

  3. My inner sense tells me this will be very cool.
  4. I'd prefer book 1. I am not a fan of inside cover tanning and even less of shadows (regardless of being on front or back). I would, if books were in hand, use the sniff test.

    Twelve days and counting!
  6. I don't know why CGC feels compelled to use the term "re-glossing". The book was never "glossed" in the first place. The gloss comes from passing a cover stock with a high clay content between rollers. This produces a shiny hard surface that, when printed on, keeps the inks crisp as opposed to being absorbed like newspring interiors. . CGC saying "re-glossed" perpetuates the myth that somehow a gloss is added to the surface of the cover in original manufacture.They should start saying something like "gloss spray added to cover".

    San Francisco Comic Swap - Aug 26, 2018

    Now this is pretty cool. I like the vibe! I'll fill my backpack with whatever I can manage. Anyone interested in high grade DC Bronze Horror? Also have some assorted bits and pieces. If anyone's going by California and Fillmore and can pick me up/drop me off please shoot me a PM! If so I can take more stuff! Either way looking forward to this.

    I'm really psyched for this show. I shall be continuing my nostalgia collecting with more BA #1s and first appearances. Looking forward to seeing the boatdies and hopefully can hook up with Brain for lunch. ?
