  1. Yikes... I put that under inviso-text. You're a spoiling rat.
  2. Amazing Spider-Man #797 - 1:10 Ed McGuiness design variant. Or Eddie's ComixExposure #796 cover if shop variants are included.
  3. Today's "junk" is tomorrows cash pile. I've done fantastic on every one of these sales. Most retailers look at what's NOT on the list & get discouraged. I look at what has potential. Example: The last few had assorted Tradd Moore Ghost Riders that were dead as mess at the time of sale. They turned into cash pigs. If you have even ounce of talent buying moderns, Many No brainers here.
  4. I'd be curious to see a cBSi's "success" defined. What exactly is it successful at? Where is the proof of this success? cBSi is successful because of they have a civil discussion board? An invite only G+ group that bans anyone who doesnt drink the kool-aid is hardly a "civil forum". But, why would a "comic book investing" site be judged successful based on the civility of its forums? (which they arent) 99% of their articles highlight books which are worth less today then when they were written about..... on a site about "investing". That is is not success, but abject failure. cBSi is successful at *temporarily* pushing up the value of books they highlight (only for them to drop off again soon after). cBSi is successful at helping move store variants, which benefit cBSi and the store, but are worthless as "investments" which is what the site is supposed to be about. cBSi uses the massive resources and internet traffic of the CGC forums, like a leech, to feed themselves. Obviously blacklisting cBSi would be wrong(and I am free speech nut), but there is no shame that CGC doesnt moderate their forum to make the moderns section a cBSi cheerleading squad as some would have it be. cBSi's snake oil peddling only works because of the state of the market for comics right now, when it finally turns, they will be washed out with the tide. I've only been aware of CBSI for a couple of years. The group was brought to my attention by word of mouth from customers that enjoyed it & thought I would too. In two years the fledgling Google group has expanded to a website, a podcast, gatherings all over the country... The CGC boards have the same stagnant look filled with the same fruit-cakes after a couple decades. If you cannot see growth, success & the direction CBSI is trending.. You simply don't want to. (
  5. You cant have it both ways. In the last 2 days Ive listed at least 10 books on here for discussion. You gotta have discussion both ways about books. Its a give and take and it requires contributions and discussion. Some just cant have a discussion and never will learn how. This board is moderated well. Once instigators get strikes again it will go back to normal. Its not like this thread hasn't seen this before. This board is moderated well. Hilarious. One of the many reasons for CBSI's success is the civil forum that they provide. This board has degraded into an online asylum. Overall CGC should be ashamed of what this has become.
  6. And when the character appears on the show it will spike to $139... Then when she's killed on the show it will spike to $179 Then back to $39
  7. word on the street... It's a prismatic foil effect card stock cover.... Still generic looking, but I think it's going to be a bit more pleasing to the eye... You'll all want one. I don't collect Venom or McFarlane, so I wouldn't have any use for one. If someone GAVE it to me, sure I'd take it...so I could sell it ASAP. Annnd you just hit the nail on the head: Venom McFarlane Two blue chip categories in modern comic collecting. Ugly but tough to get... Always gonna be a market.
  8. Not at all... I ordered 4k. sold three of the 1/1,000 I'm bulletproof. I gave away a case of regular 1's with ea one. I'll STILL have 3,000 extra 1's... It's stupid. Honestly wouldn't get involved if fans didn't ask. That's the part you guys are missing. people. ask. for these. Stop buying them, companies will stop making them.....
  9. i remember the whining about the ugly 1:1,000 Vader Down book The internet fell over themselves for that...and they will for this one too.

  11. the dude was straight up mean Curious. Mean, how? Anybody else treated poorly by us at shows this year? ( feedback from shows is usually pretty positive ) Yes! You glare at me all the time when I walk by! Ohhh, I'm not alone there... That's true. People find it impossible to take their eyes off me... (cue "sure, it's hard to look away from a train wreck" response) I was going to say you're handsome as the day is long...

  13. I "speculated" who the new Venom character is? Cool for me to guess? I'm sure thats how Marvel will look at it. Give it your best effort, let's revisit in a few weeks & see how this works out for you, Alex. Eh?
  14. I "speculated" who the new Venom character is? Cool for me to guess? Thanks! Those "charity Animosities" sure are being "scalped" on the secondary market. The "comic book scalping guy " couldn't have anything to do with that... Consumers are being scalped: the act of cutting or tearing a part of the human scalp, with hair attached, from the head of an enemy as a trophy. Who is that charity guy? Who is that scalping guy? Eh? That ain't a good look for Aftershock.
  15. *shrug* How do I post on Bleeding cool? All Marvel & DC books are torrent files the Saturday before they ship. Publisher / printer or distributor obviously posts them. Shops don't get until Tuesday. It's my job to post stuff that sells comics. But for being a dink, I'm going to be one too. I'm going to spell out: comicbookscalping.com / jimmylinguinni / Alex Hoptf / Hip Hoptf variants as clear as I can Monday for Aftershock. Bet they'll mess when the "charity guy" is also the "comic book SCALPING" guy. Anyway... You should start another Instagram / Twitter account & harass some more twelve year olds. Have a great weekend. Smoke MO dope. So Venom #1 comes out November 23. You posted the first three pages of the book, cell phone pictures of interior pages - and sent them to Bleedingcool. You posted them on Google+ first, date stamped ect. So how does you leaking a book a month before it comes out equate to not spoiling and leaking a story that Marvel clearly didn't want out until date of release? Can you show an instragram account that contacted your daughter or even instagram posts by me about you? No because they don't exist. The fact that people contact me telling me you're telling them that should really tell you what those people think of you and your delusions. XOXO I didn't send Bleeding Cool anything. Now your a CBSI fellow, right? Take a peek on their group & see the venting for Rich 'borrowing" a post or two from there. How is it different for me? The three pages you are referring to were made available to general public. ( unless somebody texted them to you Pretty sure I could post those... ( but I posted a Wikipedia Image first , Alex ) Sorry you were too baked to miss that.
