I was raised down in the Southeastern part of the state, but moved up to Indianapolis for school and stayed for work.

I miss it a lot - mostly because I miss my old comic store.

Just moved to Indy in April, the shops around here seem pretty good. Still looking for one with a lot of back stock though.

Nice to see some other Hoosiers on the board.

Venom vs Carnage #2 (first Toxin) is heating up. (thumbsu

Love the covers in the entire series. Crain and Carnage/Venom are pretty close to a match made in heaven. (thumbsu

Agreed, his interiors on that series are sweet too.  Hard to believe it's already 14+ years old.  Just checked the census for #2.  Only 26 copies in a 9.8, wtf?

Does this count as heating up? $3.4k plus....is this crazy or just the start for these rare books? Is Zombie Tramp here for the long term or a flash in the dark?

Wow, and those are 3rd print copies.  I wonder what a 1st print copy would bring.

There was a guy at fan expo canada infront of me getting books signed by Dan Mendoza. Just raw sigs... he had a first print! I offered him a grand on the spot and he turned me down then proceed to get it signed throw it in a shoe box and walk away. #rip that comic :sorry:

I offered a comic shop owner $1k a couple years back for 1st printings of #1-3.  He wouldn't budge because he said there was talks about a movie coming out (complete BS).  I wound up finding a copy but it took a long time to find one, but more copies became available once it started hitting $500 for the first issue.  Unfortunately, 1st prints are still either hard to find or the asking price is over $1k.

1st prints are almost impossible to find the print run was nothing. I too could have bought about 3 copies for $1k each a couple of years back, but thought it was stupid. I am content with still buying V2 and V3 cheap and selling them for a decent profit. Although its not as easy as it used to be.

Im not surprised at all. Arguably hottest show on TV right now and probably best animated show in years. Along with that, this being the book to have for that series and rare. I don't know if its got legs though, Id hang onto it for a while if it was me and flip it for a profit. But at some point, the next new hot show/comic is gonna take its place. I have a bunch of R&M books that I am about to flip along with a sketch. Hoping to bank nice on them. Ive already made some good change on R&M books. The views on my R&M books are 10x my other books.

If you're a R&M fan _PLEASE_ don't take this personal. 

I never heard of them in my life. Never watched the show.. I've heard of Simpsons, South Park, futurama, family guy. You know. The real BIG shows. 

That cover is hurrendous. I've heard of people buy books because of rarity. But this amount of money for that cover is mental. It defies anything that happens in the market right now. 

And I don't think that this will go away, R&M comics have been hot for months now and they're not slowing down. 

So again, I'm not a hater, I just cannot explain this

Oh I think it sucks too for that amount. I do think its probably a very first drawing or a very early drawing of the characters from Roiland. Thats probably why its the 1:50 Roiland variant. Just a guess. Its definitely not that pretty. Very simplistic.

It would be like if it was just an early version of Homer and Bart from the early simpsons on the cover of rare first comic from Matt Groenig. Think of it in that terms. This show really may get to that level with this generation.

And if you like any of those shows, you should watch R&M. Especially South Park and Family Guy.

I've never seen the show, but I've heard plenty of chatter about it. Now, Zombie Tramp, *that* I don't understand. I've never heard anyone mention it outside of this board.

Rick and Morty is probably the funniest show on television right now. I love it. But, thankfully, I have no interest in the comics. As great as the show is, and as rabid as the fans are, I just don't think these prices are sustainable in the long run.

I am a fan of those shows as well and due to some of the animation I could just not get into R&M...but I gave it a second shot on a few episodes later after the first one and it does have some very witty writing. There are a LOT of pop culture references and history written into the show and those layers help it appeal to a larger audience. Go back and watch some of the early Simpsons episodes. I can't. But from the few episodes I've seen this show does have something and I hope it stays around for a bit.

I have five words for this:  "shill bidding" and "blatant market manipulation".  One of the worst examples I've seen of it in a long time.   Let's have a close look-see, shall we?

Auction 1- Item shill bid by bidder 4***y (1), and "won" by m***l (33) with 100% bidding activity with seller, only for item to be immediately re-listed.  

http://offer.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewBids&item=122693287540&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2565

Auction 2- Item shill bid (again) and "won" by bidder 4***y (1), who was one of only 3 bidders in this auction.

 http://offer.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewBids&item=292251465774&showauto=true

Auction 3- Just two bidders, and "won" by our friend 4***y (1), again.  Other participating bidder is m***v (52)....

http://offer.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewBids&item=222651733202&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2565

...who also bid up Auction 4-

http://offer.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewBids&item=122669179821&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2565

Auction 5-  Once again, "won" by bidder 4***y (1).  Oh and look who was the under bidder on this one too! m***v (52) again. 

http://offer.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewBids&item=272844925942&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2565

Auction 6-  Look, here's our friend m***v (52) bidding up another auction again. 

http://offer.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewBids&item=222629285632&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2565

And these are just from the month of September.   

Sorry fans, but this book is as dirty as a wallowing pig's butt.  I would avoid like the Plague.

Definitely shilled, but two that were won were buy people with over 1,000 rep. So they must have thought the price was acceptable.
