Avoid Chasing Comics Books that are rumored to be a movie

July 5, 2013

And for the record these two things are true…. 
1. 90% of tv/movie rumours never eventuate so a cynical opinion is justified
2. Most of the people that say they were with this book from day one are liars and only jumped on board because of the potential profits because of the announcement of the tv show.

Packing Comics

June 26, 2013

Cut two pieces of cardboard larger on all sides of the comic book and tape the comic in the center of one ( in a bag and board). Just a couple of pieces of tape and not all the way across as that will cause a crease. This part is essential as, a good bump will move the comic book to an edge and it get’s crumples. Then you tape it all together into a delicious cardboard and comic book sandwitch. Put that into a envelope so that’s snug. (padded is better). Mark fragile, do not bend in enough places that even Mat Murdoch could see it…
I literally send this to anyone I buy a comic from….

Pretzel Logic on comics

June 25, 2013

It should tell you how volatile the modern speculative market is. It is sad to say, but ‘pretzel logic’ is sometimes the norm. When something is ‘cold’ no one wants it. This is why you often have buyers and speculators who only want or treasure something after it becomes coveted by other collectors and speculators; which occurs generally only after a rise in price. When something is ‘hot’ everyone wants it. Just look at WD #1.

The hottest comic for 2013

1:250 variant

Prices all over. 

Raw is over $500.

But wait.

Buy a 9.8 when it comes out. 

I figure $600 

There are plenty raw.

No use getting a 9.6

Gail Simone back on Batgirl

December 30, 2012

She tweeted ““I KNOW WHO THE NEXT WRITER ON BATGIRL IS……and her name is ME!”

31,000 followers on twitter

Many comic book buyers

Rumors of a DC boycott

Simone is clearly a fan favorite and this goes to show that fan voices still hold a lot of power over the comic book industry.
