Another good one about undergrounds was EggsActly.  Miss that guy.

EggsAckley, Howard Greber.

World expert level knowledge.  He taught me so much about that particular field, sold me some fantastic  Richard Corben books, someone I had a lot in common with, a boardie pal, and a great loss.

I consider myself an expert on SA Curt Swan books.  I know all those stories like the back of my hand.  

Everything, including whether the science is BS or not.

The good news is you don’t need to be the most knowledgeable in the comic book world to make a living, a lifestyle, or a pocket full of money year after year. It helps to keep your finger on the pulse but at least a quick check of the oil every so often. Any first appearances I can just google

Technically these are not the type of questions that boardies post looking for help on as the answers can be easily googled.  Some obscure bit of history about an LA comic dealer back in the 70s and Robotman has lots of info right at his fingertips, as he used to go there.  Lots of other examples.

There are quite a few SME on the boards. If you've been around long enough, you'll know who to ask.

So you "miss that guy" kav.

You can't even freakin' get his board name right. Howard Breger was one of the nicest and best boardies of all time. I am so sorry he passed away. A huge loss to our community. I loved Howard. Sorry Kav, you are one of my least favorites.

:sorry:

I thought it was EggsAckly but when I googled to make sure I didnt misspell cgc eggsackly nothing much popped up and eggactly had a lot of hits like this one so I went with EggsActly.  My bad.
