    Off-topic comment, but Britannia is a GREAT read.

    Why people hate most modern books

    '80s Marvel comics are my favorite superhero comics, but there is so much more variety available today for those who don't want to read superhero comics. That's what makes this the Golden Age in my opinion. Something for everyone. And so many wonderful works. However, there is plenty of garbage out there today as well. Perhaps more than in any other age, but the sheer quantity of quality material outweighs it all. Just like TV. So much great stuff available now, but also lots of terrible shows.

    I'd agree, for the superhero genre at least.

    Yeah, and this the true Golden Age of comic books as far as I'm concerned. NOTE: I stopped buying DC/Marvel stuff to read years ago, which is unfortunate but the endless reboots, variants, lack of continuity and endless 'events' is a turn off for me.

    Will be having a 50% off sale in late March at the Ottawa Con and will have a bunch there with me.
  6. "Stirring the pot" is important, otherwise your oatmeal will stick to the bottom and burn. True story.
  7. Yeah, it's always a gamble I guess. I had a SA X-Men graded 9.0 or 9.2 back in the day with a similar dot on the exterior of the BC. Blue label. But, this book being a black cover, and coming from a lot of books that have obvious CT on some of the books is what makes me wary to purchase it... Gonna get a blacklight and inspect it once more. I'm not too concerned about those ridges. Stay tuned!
  8. I am on the fence... It doesn't look like it from the FC, and I, as well as others, have had books with these types of dots that are not CT, so....
  9. So, what's the consensus from the photos? CT or ink drop from the printing process??? Thanks in advance.

    Well, let's just a put a fork in it and say you're right and I'm wrong. No need to beat this horse to death and start quoting different definitions of a "loss leader", because no matter what source I cite I'll just be told it's wrong. #TimeToMoveOn

    No, it's a loss leader in that scenario when I'm pricing normally $4-10 books at a buck a book to stimulate sales elsewhere. It's just not profitable at that price at the more expensive cons. Depends upon your definition of a "loss leader." I'm employing the one where it's sold at below it's minimum profit margin.
