The "Avengers" book is work about $14,000, according to experts.

I "wonder" who these experts are?

I'll sell him my 2.0 Avengers #1 for $8000, you know, just cause I feel sorry for his loss.  He would come out ahead after the insurance pays off

The burglar is gonna be disappointed when he discovers the comics he's stolen don't look as nice as Chuck's stock images he's seen online.

How is it revenue lost?  Who was gonna buy those books at those prices?

Apparently, the thief left the current MHC discount code written on a note by the cash register. Accordingly, he received a discount on the reported $42,000 worth of stolen comic books.

 

Yes, lame, like $42,000 worth.

Nice!

I've never ordered from Mile High.

I've never been a "mile high", though, to even consider buying from them...

I would assume it is revenue lost because the store was closed due to the break in.

Funny (not ha ha funny) to hear Chuck’s take on the morality of comic book “fanatics”.

I just thought about it, does that store not have an alarm system?

Or at least lights and a camera during closed up hours?

They have the camera(s) but I would think an alarm system would have been step numero uno.  Even the smaller shops I went to back home all had alarm systems.  From the video the guy was in there for 20 minutes.  He had essentially all the time in the world to clean out those showcases.  Stuff just isn't lining up to this story imo.

Wouldn’t put an insurance job past him. Especially since I suspect there’s no way he’s selling enough dollar bin drek to keep five warehouses and who knows how many employees afloat.

Oh I hadn't seen the video, but idk, I would think that he had an alarm too....

Don’t comic stores remove high dollar books from display when they close? It would seem to be the wise approach.

Like him or not, he is one savy business man. He has created quite an empire in the comic biz. He must sell his swill to somebody...
