  1. Finally got to read my Conan run. It was purchased from a collection 15 years ago (which I'm still reading) and came across a strange double cover I've never seen before. The 2nd cover was actually a center spread. Got a little excited because with this cover being protected not only by a front cover, like most double covers, but it was also protected by 8 pages of storyline on either side. I checked it out, and sure enough, not one tick on the spine no creases, perfect in every way. And then I saw it. The lower right corner was ever so slightly blunted and the lower left corner had the same problem on the back. I'm calling this a manufacturing defect as the 4 pages before it as well as a couple after the center spread were also damaged... ever so slightly. If the damage was there after the comic was purchased, I'm certain the rest of the pages would also show this defect. So, I wondering about a couple things. Has anyone out there come across a second cover in the center and what are my chances a getting a 10.0 on the 2nd cover with the manufacturing defect. I'm leaning towards no, but as I'm not 100% sure I thought I'd ask. And if no, what are my chances of a 9.9? I'd settle for that. And, if anyone is wondering, I wouldn't give the front cover anything better than a 9.4 or 9.6 maybe.
  2. Never read the comic. The show started slow but after the 3rd episode I was hooked.
  3. I liked it and will keep watching it but was unimpressed with how...within 24 hours, the batsuit was tailored to fit her and simply by seeing all those wonderful toys in the batcave she knew how to use them without any training or coaching whatsoever. Like someone already said. way too rushed.
  4. I agree....8.0...even with the stain. The key here, is you don't see it on the front cover...only the inside. Makes a difference.
  5. You might want to at least start reading the Spawns...before you decide to sell them. I personally enjoyed the run very much and you might too. Ánd, you may have enjoyed them so much you might decide to keep them? Just a thought. On another matter, if you feel what you purchased was worth the money regardless of condition, then you didn't over-pay.
  6. I'm all in...and thanks again for doing this. Very much appreciated as it's so much fun.
  7. ...If the grade is the same, not as much as my CGC rated Hulk 181. (Shameless plug...I've decided to support my local comic book forum)
  8. Ouch! Good enough reason to hang onto the collection and simply let my kids get rid of it.
  9. Not sure if this works in the US....but I do believe if I sold a comic on e-bay I would legally have to report the difference I paid with the what I sold it for to Revenue Canada. (This would be difficult only because I never kept track of what I paid for the comics when I purchased them) It's my understanding however, when I'm gone and my kids inherit the books, they get to sell them without having to report the income.
  10. If I had to do it all over again from the start, I would have bought nothing but high grade keys. For purely speculation, those tend to go up the most. But then, I wouldn't have been able to have ready all those great runs from the Silver and Bronze age...which to me was more important at the time and still is. I'd stay away from restored if you're interest is pure price escalation.
