  1. That's something blatant (but not explicit) on a Mature Readers book, not something subtle or suggestive on a book for general audiences.
  2. Would it really? Then shouldn't Lobo #1 be a huge book?
  3. I don't think I want to know what the Direct edition looks like.
  4. The numbers on recalledcomics.com are generally suspect at best. Most of the numbers people want (and some lying insufficiently_thoughtful_persons invent to fill the void) are not available to the public.
  5. That's right, your copy does not contain the first full appearance of Wolverine. If it's not on the label, it's not in the book. Too bad.
  6. Well, Hush is okay, but he's not even close to being a Venom or Deadpool.
  7. There are at least two other requirements for a true test... 1) age of the comics need to be the same, 2) the characters need to have similar depictions in the other media (both are from animations or both are based on live actors, etc.). I don't see how either of those are relevant if the characters actually have equal demand (popularity) and there is equal supply of their 1st appearances. Of course, as mentioned, popularity is hardly simple to measure and supply may not be much, if any, easier. I already mentioned it - 1st Star Trek in comics versus 1st Scooby Doo in comics - both are very similar books, but the average Scooby Doo #1 is worth double the average Star Trek #1 even though Star Trek is a bigger franchise. Scooby Doo is a comic book based on a television show of animated comic book drawings. Star Trek comics are based on live actors. That's the main difference, and Scooby Doo is winning because of it. miraclemet was comparing a real first appearance to a first appearance in a comic. Whether your point is valid or not, your post is about something completely different.

  9. Tell her to give up on those stupid purses and buy you some more comics! I mean, if you change your mind about getting married.
  10. Well, it must be one or the other since you've done it multiple times now. Ever seen a mirror? You are the embodiment of exactly what is wrong with the hobby and market right now. You not only believe any stupid thing claimed by any random clown, you also spread it without making sure it's accurate.
  11. You aren't the only one. It's really rare for a limited series to be cancelled.
  12. Got a lot of them, do ya? Well, since I'm feeling really generous, I'll take them off your hands for $100 each.
  13. It's probably not trimmed, but it's definitely both miswrapped and miscut.
