  1. Ron just bought a big slew of books from me and it was a pleasant transaction from start to finish! Thank you!
  2. Most are currently bid way below the cost of grading! Great time to snag some deals!! https://www.ebay.com/str/ivegotneatstuff
  3. I actually called a couple Spanish film organizations and surprisingly they didn't write back - maybe due to my poor english (I think I might have been saying to them - "Hello! My name is David and I have original very small chick peas" in which case, I would have hung up too in disgust .. Anyway, I finally reached a woman named Marian and I think she could tell in my voice I had something so she asked me to write her an email (even getting her email address correct took some time due to accents, etc.. This is what I wrote to her "Good afternoon. My name is David Bull and I first apologize I do not speak Spanish. I live in New York and I am writing as I recently purchased a collection of film and, in that collection, are many many reels of film of and related to Garbancito de la Mancha. I believe these films are old (some are nitrate_) and I also believe there are some reels which were used in the production of the film (unused audio etc) but I am not an expert. I am writing because I believe these may be culturally and historically important to Spain and perhaps Portugal, which many of these cases are labeled with. Here is a drop box with some of the photos of the film https://www.dropbox.com/sh/e291ob4gbvf1bnm/AAD-KdWjmaEofcSV-5lBH3F7a?dl=0 I would love to speak to someone regarding this film, as I feel it belongs in Spain - or at least with a Spanish partner in the United States who can properly store and “restore” the film. I have read online that this film is scarce - and that there are no good copies of it. Perhaps this will solve that problem! I would love to speak to someone - my phone number is XXXXX Best regards David Bull" They actually WERE going to fly over - the top guy in their department and her - but then they remembered someone who used to work for them in Madrid now worked at Cineric in NYC - http://cineric.com so we realized the easiest solution would be to just drive them to him to inspect the collection.
  4. I know haha - In the end the thought of holding a countries history and culture hostage for $ had me feeling slightly nauseated .... I charged them pretty much what I had into it (plus having to store nitrate film in our barn isn’t exactly safe)
  5. ha well - I originally bought it because there were a couple movie posters hanging out of the boxes - so I thought "oh cool - eBay fodder" so I asked them if I could buy the entire thing - some 15 boxes of stuff - and they said sure - so I did. I pulled out the posters and stuck the rest in a hot storage room (I know - stupid) - I saw film reels, but I had completely forgotten what Tarantino had taught me - nitrate film can self combust and is highly flammable. I didn't go back to the storage for about a year - and it was only then that I realized I needed to get them out of there..so I brought them back to our barn and put them in an old refrigerator/freezer to keep them cold. I then slowly pulled out reels and did research - and started to realize what I had. After calling around to a bunch of places I eventually got ahold of Spain.. (who were very excited to say the least about what I had found). THEN - I went to another yard sale and stumbled upon the other half of the same collection owned by a completely different person - and by some miracle I found the other half of the reels and bought those too.
  6. A two year project finally coming to fruition... Spain just started making press releases a couple days ago. I know its not a comic book - but know there are many animation fans here and just wanted to blab about it I sold them back to Spain for pretty much what I paid for them plus my costs (I think I saw Hugo and Cinema Paradiso too many times lol) https://www.theguardian.com/film/2020/jul/21/garbancito-hero-of-europes-first-feature-length-animated-colour-film-to-fight-again

  10. I don’t know why receiving this comic has pleased me more than any other book I’ve ever received (and I’ve received some pretty good ones) but I guess I just appreciate how the Itchy and Scratchy cartoons within a cartoon on the Simpsons made me laugh so hard I would cry and almost puke 😂 thank you Roger Meyers!
