    Moderns that are heating up on ebay!

    This is picking up again. Was this not optioned before, or was the book just hot when it came out because under-ordered, and good story etc? https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_odkw=animosity+1+-(the+rise%2C+world+of)&LH_Complete=1&LH_Sold=1&_osacat=63&_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=animosity+1+-(the+rise%2C+world+of%2C+evolution)&_sacat=63

    Moderns that are COOLING on EBAY...

    Yea I'd like to know this too as I'm still beating myself up over passing on a 9.6/9.8 raw copy of that when it first came out. Store was only asking $30 or something like that which was more than I wanted to spend at the time!

    Rarest of Marvel Legacy Lenticular Variants?

    It really seems like these are mostly a bust. I usually don't buy in to to these type of books, but I did on these and nothing has happened at all with them except they've all gone below cover price..... With that being said, the Infinity Gauntlet #1 homage and Moon Knight homage are the ones I think I've seen sell for more than cover, even double cover on a few occasions. I will just sit on all my copies of the books and maybe something happens with them down the road.
  5. I can't understand why a pressing service would not be handling ALL books with some sort of gloves on. Makes no sense at all. New books with the freshness of the ink are super prone to fingerprinting in my experience. I always put on gloves when handling and processing large stacks of books even for my personal collection.

    Yea, as a matter of fact, I sold a 9.2 copy of Nova #8 for $40 about a month ago. Still sells. https://www.ebay.com/itm/253813624337?ssPageName=STRK:MESOX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1561.l2649

    Batman DAMNED #1

    I have to say though, I'm a bit pissed I didn't follow my gut on this one. Something told me that a new adult/darker DC imprint with it's first release being a Batman book, that this would have some kind of draw or wow factor in it. I had about 25 copies in my cart on pre-order, then just decided to drop most of my order that month. I'm trying to get off the wagon just a bit and clear stuff out, not buy potentially more "stuff" that I can't get rid of...yarrgh!

    Batman DAMNED #1

    I was about to say...seen Spider-Man: Reign from like 2007 or something? Been done and now that book is pretty much limp

    Alternatives to DCBS?

    If they have done this I'm in with them again moving forward. I don't really like Midtown as far as discount, or the way they pack. As stated above, I've had no real issues with condition as of yet, but the way they put the books in those paper bags is sketchy. If the shipment is somewhat larger the books just smash right through those bags and keep slamming up against the bubble wrap, and damages are very likely. I too give DCBS props as far as making that move again. That has to be a HUGE pain in the ! Good though when a business understands a mistake, a big one in this case, and corrects it like this.

    A couple of books that are selling very well right now: Incredible Hulk vs Venom- I guess venom vs anyone right now is hot due to the new Venom series? https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_odkw=hulk+418&LH_Complete=1&LH_Sold=1&_osacat=0&_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=hulk+vs+venom&_sacat=0 Spider-Man: Noir- Especially 1A, but 1B and the whole set are on fire. I sold a 1B last week at auction for $64. I have another, and have looked around town in some of my "secret spots" that I thought I remember a stash of these hiding, to no avail. https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_odkw=spiderman+noir+3&LH_Complete=1&LH_Sold=1&_osacat=1&_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=spiderman+noir+1&_sacat=1

    I found mine in a $1 bin about a year or two ago. That and the It's a Wonderful Life book. I had no knowledge of them before I found them, and just grabbed them because they looked like pretty cool issues that were not very heavily printed obviously.
  13. Have 2 copies of Batman 655 with a weird bubble on the substrate on otherwise 9.4++ books. I can almost remember seeing this flaw on copies when it first hit shelves, and I made sure to get copies without it. These I got soon after through the mail. Does anyone else have any experience with this flaw on this book? Regardless, what could I realistically grade these out at? Thanks
