  1. Well, I’ve decided to send some books to Sarasota for grading...
  2. I’ve been looking for a nice mid grade copy for a while. I see so many faded covers and the red cover seems to show all the little imperfections.
  3. I picked up my Defenders 1 yesterday! Here's a list of the books that I have on pre-order: Stern Spider-man FF V2 - 4 Man Thing What If V1 & 2 Amazing Spider-Man V3, V5, and Michelinie/McFarlane Annihilation Conquest Captain America Brubaker - Death, Lives Ultimate Spider-man I also plan on getting the SA Thor V1 Omnibus when it comes out. Marvel realizes that they have a cash cow going, but that's a lot of Hard Covers being released. I'm certainly buying them...
  4. Cool book Jon. I have to go lower than @Funnybooks because of the large spine split. My guess is 2.5 with an outside shot at a 3.0.
  5. The only book I care about in that run is Hawkman 4, and unfortunately Z is not on the cover.
  6. I have no interest in the box sets. The OHCs and Omnis look so much better on the shelf. I'm glad that we are getting reprints of FF V2 & 3 plus a new V4. If only they could reprint the Byrne V2 Omnibus...
  7. I just want to keep reading the title. I could always read them digitally but it’s not the same. Masterworks are so notoriously expensive on the secondary market.
  8. I didn’t read any of the Apocalypse stuff either. I did enjoy the Wedon and Morrison runs. Still need to read Uncanny XForce
  9. I planned to not buy it, but then I happened to be at my LCS, as my daughter wanted to buy some Manga. I saw a copy on the rack and totally caved. I'm not an Omni completist, so I need to figure out a good cutoff point for X-Men. My new mantra should be: "I will not buy Excaliber/X-Factor/Power Pack... I will not buy Excaliber/X-Factor/Power Pack... I will not buy Excaliber/X-Factor/Power Pack..." At present, I don't plan to purchase the Claremont/Lee Volumes, Fall of the Mutants, or Mutant Massacre, but I could probably be easily swayed...
  10. Good trailer. I'm intrigued by the whole time travel aspect. To be honest, I'm looking forward to the DB Cooper scene.
  11. It all depends. I have a white collar job that can be largely done remotely. We had one of our busiest years ever.
