    May have slightly overpaid, but I got the FF 40 from comic connect tonight. Can't wait to read it!

    Is there a different letterer credited in the Mexican versions? (I assume the interior is also in Spanish...?)

    Thanks for the info again! I think that's what I'm leaning toward... May toss it up on the boards around $5k depending on taxes and blue label prices next month and see what happens... if it goes too low, I'll consign it somewhere with a couple of other TMNT's and cross my fingers (and yeah, looking back I really got a great deal... I'm pretty sure my high bid was $800.01, and I remember waking up early to watch the end of the auction and nervously submit that last bid. Good job 10-years-younger-Self!)

    ASM 121 - Who should have been the one to die?

    sadly, this is the best I can do ( | )

    And if my butt looked half that good in spandex I'd be sharing it with the world too

    ASM 121 - Who should have been the one to die?

    ah... I guess I'm reading it weird... I think the non-verbatim quote was something like, "she was dead before she hit the ground." She wasn't *literally* dead... She was just inevitably dead in a second or two. *thumbs up*

    ASM 121 - Who should have been the one to die?

    Yes, thank you! That's part of what I was trying to remember... But the 2nd part... if this is what happened, (and was intended) why the convoluted monologue about how she was already dead?

    House of Secrets 92 too hot to handle

    Really does seem like a crazy high market at the moment... still speculation driving it? I bought mine raw around 2008 at a local Con for like $150... submitted it to CGC last year... light water stains on the front and a rusted staple on the bottom hurt, but I still did ok

    Thanks for the thoughts! The lack of data is definitely frustrating, but yeah... it does look like a 50% discount is approximately what to expect... Guess I'll see what the tax fairy brings and go from there with the assumption I may be able to get 3-4 out of this one. The sales I was looking at (am I reading GPA wrong?) were, in reverse chronological order: 9.0 (SP) February 26, 2012: $1,300 (same book as the previous sale) 9.0 (SP) December 16, 2011: $800 9.4 (SP) June 12, 2011: $1,623 (CGC Verification doesn't have a match for this number...??) 9.4 (SP) April 04, 2011: $1,700 (wondering if this is the same book as above...) 9.0 (SA) July 28, 2007: $760 (this is my purchase of the book above.. the most I'd ever spent on a comic at the time! The resub last year turned it in to 9.2 (C-1)) There's this kind of crazy flip of an 8.5 with much more restoration back in 2014... not bad for a week's worth of work!

    ASM 121 - Who should have been the one to die?

    I finally got copies if 121 and 122 recently and thought, despite knowing the basic story thanks to ad nauseam recaps, that it was handled really wonderfully just the way it was... I did mean to ask... was there something about having to massage the dialog on the last couple of pages to make it clear that Spidey didn't actually kill her with the *snap*? GG's explanation that she was already dead seems pretty weak.

    what is a CURATOR COPY ?

    Nice, thanks that one doesn't pop like sonne of those other white covers, does it? Still pretty awesome!

    Beautiful! Any idea where the #1 is squirreled away?

    Yah, I'm just trying to get a ballpark to see if it's worth the auction risk and/or what a fair reserve might be. Not looking to lose it for just $1k, you know?

    Anyone care to hazard a guess as to what I might be able to expect to get for my 9.2 Apparent (slight color touch on cover)? I'm thinking about trying to sell this and upgrade to a Universal as tax season comes around... Very few Apparent sales figures on GPA though... The 2 9.0 Apparents (2007 and 2012) have no other sales during those years but appear to be about half (or a little less) of the Universal for the years on either side. The 9.4 Apparent (2012) also went for a little less than half of the Universal value that year. With 9.2's going b/t about $8k and $11k over the last year, does $4k sound like a reasonable assumption? Pretty sure I've posted these scans before, but here's a looksee:
