  1. thats cool if you don't care but you shouldn't of paid.
  2. He is right. You should not have to pay shipping for a book that was not described correctly. Who told you this? This has happened to me and I request the seller to provide a shipping label and they do if they want it back.
  3. I bought a comic on ebay that wasn't as described. I received a full refund from the seller. I live in Canada and the seller was in the US so I had to pay $12 in import fees. I wasn't reimbursed this by ebay and they told me that they don't reimburse import fees. I've been told the opposite by other people who buy and sell on ebay. Does anyone know if ebay does reimburse import fees? Thanks.
  4. This guy either works for marvel or knows someone who does. No way you can guess all that. Impossible.

  6. This is getting worse daily. Almost every other one now is a scam from China. I've reported so many of them but I'm switching to only north america in my search now.
  7. Sellers from China have been posting all kinds of fake sales on ebay in the past couple of weeks. They take pics and titles from other people's ads and use them on their own ad. Forsure there fake. I've reported many to ebay but them seem to be coming up even more the past few days. People keep buying them but I'm not sure why. The price is always around $75 with free shipping from China lol. Example below.
  8. I don't mind it. I find some of the acting weak though. Jon Bernthal is awesome
  9. Reason I say 2-3 years with silver surfer is because it will take that long for marvel to get the movie green lit and made. I would be careful with the pot stocks. To me, it seems they are a bubble. None of them make any profits and don't plan to anytime soon. I would be careful with them. Lots of retail investors are all in on them. That's a clear sign of dumb money. Be careful.
  10. Hey Junkdrawer. Thanks for the comment. You make some interesting points. So would not not buy ASM #50 since Kingpin doesn't appear on the cover?
  11. Thanks. Yeah its very hard to call the top in asset prices. Got to be happy with the return you made. Cheers
  12. Hey Grebal. Thanks for the comment. I also work in the finance industry and I understand what you are saying. Comics are very similar to stocks. I stay clear of anything that is hyped. I try to buy books before that. Case in point, purchased Ms. Marvel's 1st appearance and #1 1.5 years ago for peanuts. I will be selling both in the next couple of months. That's the way I buy books. I agree with Hulk 181. It moved too much, too fast. However, when Wolverine shows up in a marvel movie that book might be out of reach even in low grades. It's come down the past 2 months and might be a buying opportunity. I try to buy books that nobody cares about. I do follow the marvel movies but also try to be smart about these things. For instance, about 2 years ago I started buying up 1st appearances of female superheroes. Ms Marvel, Spiderwoman, poison ivy, She-hulk etc. I figured that they will bring in females characters into movies and tv shows and that is happening now. I would definitely buy Spider-woman's 1st appearance. They will bring her in. They will do a surfer movie for sure. No doubt about it. I've heard rumours that Mephisto will be the villain in his 1st movie. I still think FF48 is a buy right now. Anyway, thanks for the comment.
