  1. Not the highest of grades, but this was one of the first comic books I bought as a young kid in the 80s. I loved Sergio Aragonés from years of reading Mad. Thanks to Rich Henn for getting this signed and remarked at SDCC a couple years ago.
  2. Those numbers seem high, so I'm guessing those are worldwide numbers. In 2018, according the NHTSA, the number of US auto fatalities was just over 36K (over 12 months - averaging around 98/day). As of today, the number of COVID19 fatalies in the US was 72K (over 2-3 months - with 877+ today). The "Fatalities per 100M miles traveled" has gone down significantly over the past several decades, possibly due to the numerous safety measures being enacted. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motor_vehicle_fatality_rate_in_U.S._by_year
  3. Not sure if this was posted anywhere, but just read this about Diamond not paying publishers this week... https://www.msn.com/en-us/entertainment/books/in-blow-to-publishers-comics-distributor-to-withhold-payments/ar-BB11YG5W?ocid=spartanntp Edit: Nvm, I found it in another thread...
  4. Season 2 is wrapped up, but we won't get the first episode until October?! Patience is not one of my virtues (thus my need to fastrack all submissions, even if not really needed)
  5. For the books that have barcodes on both direct and newsstand editions, I think a 5 digit secondary barcode means direct. Whereas a newsstand will only have 2 digits on the second barcode.
  6. I think I posted before, but this is my favorite Punisher cover - because Tim Duncan. He also owns a custom car shop in town, and the car pictured on the cover was one he actually built and raffled for charity (and was signed by Stan Lee!) I had this book signed by Mike Choi in person, and is the only time I've been able to have my books personally signed so far. But those darn Newton rings!

  7. Funny, my daughter checked out that book this week from the library for a book report (also got the Clara Barton one). Except hers is titled "Who Is Stan Lee" and was published in 2014. Same picture on the cover. There's many of these types of books from the publisher, and it has a listing in there of around 100 or so other books about various people.
  8. CGCData.com has all sorts of good info (yes, it is ASM300) http://cgcdata.com/cgc/cgctop/
  9. Very well packed raw comics, and easy to deal with. Thanks!!
  10. After a 25-year or so break from collecting, decided to get back into the hobby a couple years ago. Not sure what prompted it, but i think i saw a new LCS open up and I stopped in to check it out. After researching comics online, and this "new" grading concept, I bought my first graded comic during a 15% off sale on eBay; a Star Wars (1977) #1 9.6 WP (because Star Wars!).
  11. This is probably in the wrong forum (maybe should be in the newbie one). But most local comic shops around here always have the physical copy. Some sell it to you and one actually gives it for free if you ask.
  12. Thanks to Twin Cities Comics for getting Brie Larson added!
  13. Just saw it again with the family. LOVED it even more with the second viewing. Looks like this may be an early birthday present to myself: https://www.bestbuy.com/site/star-wars-9-movie-collection-digital-copy-4k-ultra-hd-blu-ray-blu-ray-only--best-buy/6393929.p?skuId=6393929&ref=212&loc=1&ref=212&loc=BM01&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI76aUvszX5gIVTdbACh3FkAvPEAQYASABEgLTgvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds
  14. Saw it tonight and loved it. Will be seeing it again at the theater. Visuals were fantastic and I actually enjoyed the story and how it wrapped up the saga.
  15. Unlike comic books, where the heroes and villains stay dead! Although a one-off movie starring Luke's old hand might have promise
  16. From what I read, It doesn't appear that Disney+ was hacked. Rather, this is a result of other breaches and people used the same password on Disney+ as they did on those other compromised sites. Don't use the same password for multiple places!
  17. From this article: https://collider.com/how-to-watch-disney-plus/ So how do you actually watch Disney+? The streaming service is available to view on the following devices on launch day: Desktop web browsers Android mobile devices Android TV Apple TV Chromebooks Chromecast and Chromecast-enabled devices Fire TV streaming devices Fire TV Edition smart TVs Fire Tablets iPads iPhones LG TVs Samsung TVs and devices Sony PlayStation 4 Sony Smart TVs Roku players Roku TV Xbox One
  18. Sure, it pairs well with underwater coffee, which somehow stays in an open cup...
