  1. With these you'd do better paying CGC not to send it back.
  2. Here's a really good breakdown of those cool '66 'Black Bat' cards: Popular Batman Cards in Pictures Part One - 1966 Black Bat Batman Cards Quoting now (emphasis mine): The 1966 Black Bat cards (like all mainstream sets of 1966) was licensed worldwide to be produced in various countries locally. As a result the set is available in the following variations: 1966 Black Bat Orange Back Topps (USA) 1966 Black Bat Orange Back O-Pee-Chee (Canada) 1966 Black Bat Pink Back Series A&BC (UK) 1966 Black Bat Fan Club Series A&BC (UK) 1966 Black Bat Orange Back Scanlens (Australia) So it looks like yours are that "O-Pee-Chee" Canadian printing. And congrats on a such a fun pick-up. Look to be in excellent shape from your photos.
  3. It's good to see someone like Truman get attention. One of the all time top-tier comic book Illustrators imho. The man certainly does his homework on 'heavy metal' (firearms, weapons, armor, vehicles, aircraft, etc.) and it shines through. One of fandom's bright spots.
  4. Surprising she's not recognized. She had plenty of TV exposure in JLUnlimited. Well written character in that animated series, with lots of personality. She provided a charming counterpart to Supergirl. That, and being a prominent JSA cover-character for decades.
  5. Exactly. And it's silly (in my mind) to think "comic book collector" doesn't extend to digital. Someone who collects a wide variety of digital-offerings could possibly be more involved with the artform than, say, someone heavily invested in CGC'd comics. Right? Just think of iPads and Androids as Slabs with zoom-in features and viewable pages.. You bring up an interesting conundrum that didn't exist before the digital age. Is it collecting if someone is simply collecting digital copies? You can't smell them ,touch them, feel the differences (each age used different paper and inks). It might be collecting in a newer sense (much like collecting pics from the internet might be) but I can also see how it isn't in the 'old' sense. It's much like collecting reprints IMO. The "interesting conundrum" I'm hinting at is this... "Is it collecting if someone is simply collecting digital CGC'd copies? You can't smell them ,touch them, feel the differences. (unless you crack them out, ruining the cert.) Right? So, hypothetically, someone could own a warehouse full of encapsulated comics and never physically touch one. That was my main point. That "digital" isn't "less than" anything when it comes to collecting comic books. And maybe "more" since digital is 'consumable' in the traditional sense.
  6. Ironically, with modern, Digital may be "the original". The 'director's cut', so to speak. How it was 'intended'. Transfer to a paper-medium might result in loss of line, color-shifts, muted effects, diminished textures and so forth. Lost in transference.

  8. Sorry, but this made me laugh. Without buying and warehousing boats can't be a sailor, even if they've spent a lifetime at sea? By your logic. It's a storytelling medium, paper or digital, floppy or collected volume. Anyone enjoying the stories is as much of a fan as the archivist or temp-curator.
  9. They already do...the H-E-Bs here have it. Love it too! Might as well go with the Dymamic Duo....
  10. They already do...the H-E-Bs here have it. Love it too! Aw, damn!! I NEED that here...may have to make a little drive and pick up a case or five! I think its the blended in jalapenos that make it so good...not just a dash of hot sauce. Shipped right to your door Mystafo. Nationwide. https://www.heb.com/search/?q=whataburger
  11. It's is definitely not In-N-Out Burger. We like our burgers with taste down here. Got that right! I went through an In-N-Out by my work, not knowing much about them other than cars line up pretty far. Mistake. I'll never go back. Absolutely horrible. Dry, tasteless, cold. Ugh. Whataburger, Braums, Dairy Queen... So many choices for a decent burger. In-N-Out was a complete shock.
