  1. Ugh. I managed to set my alarm to go off 30 minutes *after* the auctions instead of before. Was hoping to get one of those Curators. C'est la vie... Congrats to whoever picked those up!
  2. I can't answer your question, but that stinks. I really like the light gray short boxes! :-/
  3. One of these two... I posted these in the "Your Favorite Copper Covers" thread too... Two of the first (if not *the* first) comics I bought off the stands, I think. I believe I got them at a gas station or something at the bottom of Sugar Mountain when we were going to stay up at Sugar Top, during the summer for some reason... I read them both so many times and just LOVE the juxtaposition between the covers.
  4. I'd be happy with the current sales model if they just reduced the output to something manageable... Not counting any of the stupid variants, reprints, collections, or non-MU material (Spider-Man game, Marvel Tales, Star Wars, Conan...), the pre-order discount price to order 1 copy of every MU book is $199.50. That's with just under a 40% discount, so newsstand is nearly $400. Ridiculous. Not even going to pretend that the exercise of counting up everything with the variants is worthwhile...
  5. Wow. There are some amazing books in here... I only have one double-cover issue, and it's nothing overly special... here you go though!
  6. I see it... do you not see an image at all? (Shock Suspenstories 1)
  7. Looks like CC takes care of this easily! "Thank you for letting us know, we’ve removed the listing."
  8. Just found this scan of another one from decades ago... Wish I could find the original! (I don't remember which issue, but I was trying to draw an image from LegendLore)
  9. I'm just sitting on my thumbs waiting on Jack himself to get popular before someone manages to find a 9.8 copy of MS2...
  10. So... similar to this thread regarding ComicLink: I just found a book that I've owned for nearly 6 months for sale on ComicConnect for more than double what I paid for it. (I bought it as BIN on Ebay) I assume this is the same kind of situation mentioned in the previous thread (and I emailed CC to get it taken down), but is this a widespread problem? Seems like sites that just act as middlemen should be able to do more to ensure listings are accurate and books are actually available. I like the idea of having sellers have to actively refresh listings after [x amount of time], and although that wouldn't fully solve the issue perhaps it would help. Guess we'll see what happens with the CC email... I felt like I should have sent a picture with today's paper or something though. My little hostage ransom note!
  11. Can't afford to sell this one since, as far as I know, it's one-of-a-kind, and I doubt if someone paid me what it would take to separate it from me I could ever afford to pay them enough to separate it back!
