    The GA in Australia

    I just consigned a run of Brenda Starr Australian comics to comiclink that should be in the next auction. Very cool books. And here is the only Australian comic that I currently have in inventory.
  4. Not sure if anybody here on the boards buys westerns, but I just loaded some on the site.

    What are the rarest romance comics?

    In all seriousness, I didn't include any links to my site or offers to sell. I bought these books because I had not seen most of them before. Most of them there are no graded copies of. I had someone tell me at SDCC that they had never seen the last issue of Thrilling Romances before. I just thought they were pretty cool and they have some very nice artists inside (some of them at least).

    SDCC 2018 A Dealer's Perspective?

    This was not at all the case. My worst day was Weds. night. Preview night is just so short. If you don’t get in early, it’s really not enough time to get much done. I was steady throughout the weekend and my best day was Sunday, followed by Thursday and Saturday (basically even) and Friday bringing up the rear and it wasn’t bad. I always feel like the mistakes are bought on weds and then the people shop for what they want til they find the deal/ book they are looking for depending on how many days they are at the show. Sunday is often my best day anymore at shows. Not always but many times.

    SDCC 2018 A Dealer's Perspective?

    I think Bob pretty much hit the nail on the head. As far as the dealers who were not there, I miss Bud. Always enjoyed talking to him and he typically comes around and actually buys comics. Terry's booth I believe was filled by Greg Reece, so the net quality of comics was probably higher than before. I've been doing SDCC for 20 years. And certainly it has changed greatly in that time. As a dealer, you either adapt to those changes, or you are left behind in the dust. It is not a cheap show to set up at. Most dealers are going to have a minimum of $10,000.00 of expenses, before the show starts, some considerably more than that. However, there are still buyers at that show that I see nowhere else. And I meet new customers every year. Like Bob, I am trying to use the convention not only for sales, but also for making long term customers for my website. I have added a couple of dozen new customers to my website in the 2 weeks since the show. Between that and the still very good sales, the show is more than worthwhile. And there are still more quality comics at this show than any other in my opinion. Just to give you an example of what people were buying at the show/shows (Torpedo and SDCC) Phantom Stranger #1 CGC 5.0 (Golden age) Western Comics #65 Shock Suspenstories #5 Haunt of Fear #18 Famous Funnies #216 Strange Adventures #55 Tales from the Crypt #41 Weird Science-Fantasy #27 Weird Science #15 FF #49 Batman #158, 217, 189, 232 Journey into Mystery #83 CGC 2.0 JIM #114 Spirit #22 CGC 7.0 GL #85 Haunt of Fear #12 X-men #14 Black Terror #22 Western Bandit Trails #9 Women Outlaws #1 Star Spangled Comics #125,129 Strange Adventures #38 ASM #129 Batman #55 CGC 5.5 Authentic Police Cases #18 Fantastic Four #52 CGC 8.5 Pep #79 Conan #2 CGC 9.6 Dr. Strange #178 CGC 9.6 Spooky #1 Ghost Breakers #2 Tomb of Dracula #10 CGC 9.6 Adventures into the Unknown #53,54 Friday Foster #1 CGC 9.6 Beware #13 X-Men #101 CGC 9.6 Web of Mystery #5,13 Tomb of Terror #5 Hand of Fate #11, 15 Mysteries #2 Avengers #4 CGC 3,5 Amazing Detective #3 Superman #138 CGC 9.0 Batman #68 CGC 7.0 Marvel Mystery #77 CBCS 7.5 Kaanga #13 Daredevil #181 CGC 9.6 Tales of Suspense #81 CGC 9.2 TTA #53 Silver Surfer #12,13 Beware Terror Tales #4 Adventures into the Unknown #20, 55 Vic Flint #1 Blue Ribbon vol1 #4 Detective #247 Aquaman #1 Navy Combat #96 ASM #28 Shock Suspenstories #15 Avengers #11 Silver Surfer #16 CGC 9.6 Marvel Family #30,34, 61 Special Marvel Edition #15 CBCS 9.2 HOM #156m157, 158, 164 All American Men of War #58 Battle #34 Frontier Fighters #4 Our Army at War #33 HOM #29 All True Crime #36 Western Comics #64,82 New Mutants #98 Wonder Woman #203 Spy Fighters #5 Men in Action #2 Marines in Battle #2 Amazing Spider-man #361 Avengers #87 Two Fisted Tales #33 Captain America #102 CGC 9.6 Beware the Creeper #1 CGC 9.4 Detective Comics #411 Tales of Suspense #43 X-Men #66 Strange Adventures #205 Wonder Woman #187 GL #26 Big stack of Atlas war and crime from new collection (28 books) Strange Adventures #100 JIM #91 Avengers #104 Superman #199 Marvel Spotlight #43 Batman #171, 244 Batman #251 CGC 7.5 ASM #33 X-men #100 CGC 9.4 Amazing Spider-man #14 CGC 8.0 Gi Combat #77,78 Our Army at War #38 Star Spangled War #29,67 X-Men #101 CGC 8.5 FF #121,122,123 Batman #239,255 Detective #426, 422, 423, 439 GL #84 Black Panther #15,17 Superman #247 Jungle Action #11,12,14 USA #12 CBCS 5.0 Our Army at War #70 Teenage Temptations #9 Flash #182 Menace #5 ASM #141 ASM #59 CGC 9.4 Rangers #33,39 Fight #57 Captain America Ann 1 CGC 9.4 Captain America #149 CGC 9.6 FF ann #4 TTA #2 Mystic #45 Marvel Tales #132 True Complete Mystery #7 GS Invaders #1 GS Spider-man #4 Fantastic Four #5 CGC 3.5 Amazing Spider-man #31 CGC 8.0 Avengers #181 CGC 9.6 ASM #102 CGC 9.2 Our Army at War #41, 35 Western Comics #77,81 HOM #31 X-men #138,49, 122 Captain America #130,132,123 Action #124 Action #60 CGC 6.5 World's Finest #47, 52 Wow Comics #28 More Fun Comics #100 Secret Hearts #48 Captain Marvel Adventures #41 ASM #252 GL #47 Iron Man #95,134,169,149,150 ASM #134 ASM #62 Hulk #104,150, 153 Strange Adventures #22 CGC 7.0 Silver Surfer #1 DC Comics Presents #26 Mr. District Attorney #53 Flash Comics #18 CGC 4.5 New Mutants #87 Phantom Stranger #11 Wonder Woman #102 All Star #12 CBCS 6.0 X-Men #49 Conan #1 CGC 9.6 Adventure #288 Action #284, 287, 289 Superboy #89 Doom Patrol #99 ASM #28 ASM #5 Batman #44 Flash #116, 153 Blackhawk #38,40 All Top #15 CGC 8.5 Aquaman #3, 29 Amazing Spider-man #64 CGC 9.8 Marvel Premiere #61 X-Men #5 Batman #81 CGC 6.0 Cowgirl Romances #10 CGC 5.0 ASM #361 Wonder Woman #213,216,223,225,226 Thing #17,3 Web of Evil #8 Witches Tales #5 Frankenstein #2 Startling Comics #35 CGC 6.5 Eerie #6,12 Alarming Tales #4 Batman #123 CGC 9.0 Black Cat #52 Chamber of Chills #25 ASM #300 Daredevil #42,43,50 ASM #83 ASM #239, 300 WWBN #1 Inhumans #1 Flippity and Flop #13 Hulk #181 CGC 4.5 Hulk #141 Secret Origins #1 CGC 9.0 Iron Man #128 Amazing Spider-man #129 CGC 7.5 Amazing Spider-man #121 CGC 7.5 ASM #131 CGC 9.6 ASM #72 Marvel Premiere #13 X-Men #128 CGC 9.8 Wonder Woman #163 Batman #208 Wonder Woman #98 CGC 4.0 X-men #100 TTA #8 CGC 7.5 Walt Disney Comics & Stories #80,100 Iron Man #128 Ghost Comics #1 CGC 5.0 Hulk #107,108 JIM #103 CGC 7.5 FF #49 DD #22,23 Hulk #112, 113, 140 X-Men #117 Jumbo #153 Rulah #24 Tales of Justice #53 Action #273,274 Action #56 Batman #54 Air Fighters vol 2 #9 Action #81, 85, 88 TOS #40 Wonder Comics #6 Wartime Romances #14 CGC 3.5 Captain Marvel Adventures #3 CGC 5.0 Action Comics #66 CBCS 8.5 Fighting Yank #9 CGC 5.5 ASM #238 Adventures into Weird Worlds #23 JIM #89 CGC 7.0 ASM #5 CGC 6,5 Uncle Scrooge #11 Batman #113,115,118 Marvel Premiere #47 CGC 9.8 Hulk #130, 105 ASM #78, 97, 98 HOM #183,190 X-Men #94 Lois Lane #17, 51 GI Combat #16,18,59 Plus a bunch of other cheap stuff which I didn't bother to write down individually.
