  1. At one point in my collecting days, I had six copies of this book. Five unstickered and one that still had the sticker, which I bought in CT. I tracked these for about five years and came up with some general distribution areas. I did enjoy the chase and Shield Agent and I had a laugh or two. I traded my stickered copy for a piece of Amazing Spider-Man artwork from Issue 145, which I had to eventually sell. Funny, after finding my stickered copy, I soon also found a copy of Pow! Biff! Pops! Probably two of the rarer Spider-Man appearances within less than a month. Anyway, they are long gone, still have the pic of ASM184 All Detergent variant.
  2. My older brother introduced me to comic collecting in the mid-seventies. He had boxes of them, but nothing too old. He explained that many were stolen when he left them in the car as part of cross country move. He had a lot of coverless comics, which were bought that way according to him. I always read through them trying to imagine what the covers looked like. Years later, I discovered the story behind these and with the internet was able to see all the covers. Great find, thanks for sharing.
  3. My brother and I bought two copies of the Amazing Spider-Man 150 when it hit the stands in 1975, if I have the year correct. Anniversary book. Um, sorta. I started buying two issues of ASM with issue 333 and did that to I left collecting at issue 600. Also bought two copies of Spawn 1.
  4. Great job by the OP. I know from discussion back in the day with the Variant Mafia how tough it is to put together this run.
  5. I saw this movie the other night. I haven't really followed the franchise at all, so I was open minded. I didn't really enjoy it, giving it a C- at best. Lots of things that didn't even come close to passing the common sense test. Agree with the comment posted above about not getting vested in the characters enough to care what happens to them.
  6. Wow, thought this one would have been solved hours ago.
  7. Nailed it. Very nice book with great colors! Looks like that upper left corner is the only thing bringing it down.
  8. I saw both Guardian of the Galaxies I & II as part of a double feature, both in 3D. My wife and I had a great time, as well as the packed theater, based on the cheers, laughs, and applause throughout the movie. I would say the first movie was slightly better, but this one was every bit as enjoyable. I think I enjoyed the opening more than any other part of the movie.
  9. Nice book. At one time, there were only about 3-4 copies known that still had the sticker. I assume there have been more that have surfaced over the last couple of years. Was this copy originally from the North Carolina area or did it come from somewhere else? Anyway, good luck with the sale.
  10. Yes. Love all the negativity in here.
  11. Man, I love this cover. One of my favorites. Awesome book.
  12. I haven't posted much lately in this thread. Nice to see it is still going strong. Had a few moments and thought I would plot out the graded AF#15 distribution. Well, I guess I just plotted universal copies.
  13. Hard to say
