SERIES RELAUNCH ISSUES #20 CGC 9.6, WHITE PAGES #22 CGC 9.4, WHITE PAGES ABOUT ME: I know this is not Match.com and that people are here looking for comic books, not potential soul mates, but since this is my first post selling comics on the CGC boards, I thought folks may feel more comfortable buying from me if they knew a bit about me first. However, if you couldn't care less whether or not I am a USMC Iraq War veteran living in Baton Rouge, LA, where I manage a small production company incorporated in 2012, who is also a well established seller on eBay with 100% positive feedback, or a Nigerian prince who not only wants to sell you an amazing Bronze Age comic book lot, but also trusts that you are a distinguished individual of high character who can be trusted with his personal fortune in excess of $40,000,000 USD of which you may keep 5% if you will just send 1% of that amount via bank wire first to establish that the $40,000,000 is sent to a verifiable, legitimate checking account per Sec. 455.H0L3 of African Continental banking regulations, then skip this section and read the next one that is all about how to pay me. For everyone else, rest assured that I am definitely not a Nigerian prince who sends out phishing emails. ? My name is Sean Huze and I am a USMC infantryman (2001-2005), an Iraq War veteran, and a small business owner living in Baton Rouge, LA, with my wife, son, and daughter. Incidentally, my wife and I vehemently disagreed on what to name the latter. We both felt so strongly about our very different choices that compromise was impossible. So we did what any two, mature, rational adults would do in our situation: conflict resolution via a single round of "Rock, Paper, Scissors." She lost and my daughter’s name is Daenerys after the character from George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice & Fire series. ?? Lastly, I am a CGC authorized dealer since 2015 with an excellent track record selling comic books, trading cards, action figures, and other collectibles on eBay over the past several years.* * Yes, I am well aware that one could make a strong argument that the final sentence of the preceding paragraph is not only the most important information about me that a potential buyer needs to know, but it is also the only relevant information to a potential buyer in the entire paragraph. PAYMENT OPTIONS: Payment via PayPal (business account) is due upon receipt of the invoice. The invoice will list each comic included in this lot individually along with its grade and CGC certification #. I can also accept MasterCard or Visa credit/debit cards (over the phone, not online), but there is an additional 3% transaction fee added to your total if you choose this payment option. SHIPPING: Free domestic (US states & territories) shipping via USPS Priority insured for the full purchase price. I will ship internationally via USPS Priority International to Canada, Australia, France, Germany, UK, and most EU countries, however shipping is the buyer's responsibility. I will not add for packing materials, handling, etc., though, so your shipping cost will be the exact amount USPS charges for postage and nothing more. This lot’s packaged weight is approximately 20 pounds (9 kg). Enter that weight and select USPS Priority International Mail if you would like to calculate a shipping estimate from Baton Rouge, LA, USA, 70817-3717, to your delivery address. Also include insurance for the full purchase price in order to get a more accurate shipping estimate. I will consider shipping elsewhere, but please PM me first to discuss. RETURNS/REFUNDS: Returns for damaged items or items not as described (i.e., I sent the wrong comics by mistake somehow) within 30 days and I will refund 100% of the purchase price and reimburse for the return shipping within 12-24 hours upon receipt of the package containing the returned items. I will also accept returns within 14 days of delivery, "No questions asked," however return shipping is the buyer's responsibility. MISCELLANEOUS: Please understand that if you PM me with an offer and someone else commits to my asking price by replying to this post with or via PM and I did not accept your offer already, then this lot goes to them. That said, I will respond to all reasonable offers quickly. If I accept your offer, the lot is yours at the price offered and I will update this post with "SOLD" immediately after doing so. Should someone happen to commit in the brief time between me accepting an offer and updating this post, I will notify them via PM that the lot was sold prior to their commitment. However, if I reply with a counteroffer and someone commits before you reply accepting my counteroffer, the lot is theirs. While these scenarios are unlikely, they could happen and it's best to address them upfront instead of after the fact. Thank you so much for your interest in this lot. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reply to this thread (others may have the same question) or you can also PM me if you prefer. I'll respond quickly either way. Warm regards, Sean Huze (aka Sandstormer)
For my money, Mister Miracle was the most successful of the Fourth World titles in both idea and execution. The deceptively simple concept, coupled with Kirby's out there early 70's imagination, led to some great stories. It took me a while to find a nice copy of Mister Miracle #1 from April 1971. I finally picked up this nice looking mid grade copy from a fellow boardie for a nice price. Look at that cover! How could you not want to pick that up! Well, if that one didn't entice you, than surely this one did? Mister Miracle #6 from February 1972. Hands down, my favorite Kirby cover ever. Beautifully homaged by Jackson Guice for Action Comics #708 from March 1995. One last favorite cover of mine is Mister Miracle #13 from April 1973. I love the twist on the old "damsel in distress tied to the rail road tracks" trope. And that Kirby train...classic! This run also features the 1st appearance of Big Barda in Mister Miracle #4 from October 1971. Will Barda and Scott ever make it into the DCEU films? Call me sentimental, but I could definitely see a high action, super-hero romance film being successful. Have we had one of those yet? Deadpool, maybe? Time will tell, but with the Fourth World coming big time with the Justice League movie, we can only hope...
