  1. Yup, although still not easy to find. Volume 3 ("Olympus") still goes for $100+ in softcover in worn shape.
  2. I tend to agree with this position. I am flabbergasted seeing prices go way up on the free 50th Anniversary DC Preview book because it's supposedly the first appearance of Watchmen (a "fact" which has made it's way onto Wikipedia), in a one page preview image. I certainly believe these books can be collectible for fans of a character or series, but to suggest that non-story preview images count as captial F, capital A First Appearances feels dishonest to me. Mileage will vary.
  3. Curio and junk store with a ton of eighties comics close to my place had this Eclipse Miracleman hardcover. Not one of the super rare ones but still a steal at $25 Canadian in near perfect shape.
  4. A few additions to the 70s Morbius set I'm putting together
  5. Terrific transaction with Jason. Book arrived quickly, packaged ideally. Thanks so much, I really appreciate it!
  6. Bought an Amazing Spidey 101 restored from Rick at a far better than reasonable price and it arrived quickly, and incredibly well packaged. Couldn't be happier with the transaction. Thanks for making my first board purchase so easy Rick!!
  7. Thanks y'all. The seller (local store) had this at an 8.5, which I thought was a stretch. Price was still decent.
  8. Picked this up the other day for a reasonable enough price. What say y'all?
  9. I'm still getting my sea legs as a grader, but having spent a lot of time looking at copies of ASM 101 of late, I feel pretty confident this is around 5.0-5.5. Nice copy IMO!
  10. Keep a close eye on the Golden/Silver sales forum here on the board. Over the last week a ton of classic mid-grade ASM issues have been posted at very reasonable (and in some cases excellent) prices. Keys will still cost you, but you're almost guaranteed to get a better deal here on the boards than on eBay or via a dealer.
  11. I'm the biggest Doom Patrol fan you're likely to meet, and I think they nailed it. I don't want to see the same thing from any version of the comics, where the show has shined is in melding together ideas and stories from various incarnations of the book and putting their own spin on it. I also want to give a huge shout-out for the characterizations they came up with for Rita and Larry. Rita being kind of prissy and horrified by her condition is a far more interesting take then her classic Silver Age persona (which to be honest is kind of bland) and Larry being frustrated and lonely taps into some real pathos. I wonder if we'll get a Season 2!
