Re: Incredible Hulk 180 The 1st Wolverine app Club

I saw a WTB thread at CBCS for a Hulk 180, "since 181 is out of [his] reach". It made me take a peek at my 181's grade (7.0) on GPA for the first time since May and my jaw hit the floor :-o :-o :-o Last I saw it was averaging right around 2k. Then with three sales in June it climbs to 2.6k...

Re: THIS WEEK IN YOUR COLLECTION

I've had INCREDIBLE luck (IMO) finding these in the wild. Each time was a surprise, and amazingly, 2 of the 4 I've found were purchased online with no mention of a Double Cover :rockout: This one came from My Comic Shop. My other Double Covers are Longshot #1, Strange Tales #180, and Amazing Spider-...

Re: Hello

Not sure we can supply "many" people for you to meet, but there are a few of us here. Mostly life long or long time collectors.
Personally I collect Silver Age and Bronze Age with a dash of Copper.

Welcome!!

Re: Looking for name of comic about a drug that gives super powers

Sorry, it doesn't ring a bell. The only character I remember taking a drug for powers was Underdog (the original) and his Super Energy Pill.

Re: A Warm Welcome and Introduction

Welcome to The CBF, George! Yes, times have changed for the better with the help of the Marvel Films- These days I don't mind being seen in or coming out of a comic store, but I try not to let anyone see me bring comics into my home because, unlike when I was a kid in the 70's, comics are recognized...

Re: ASM #300 4.0/VF

Can you share a pic? Crazy how low grades are fetching these prices. It seems whatever is going on with the character these days in comics is enough to fuel the flames, and that the movie doesn't seem to be as much a factor in the price hikes like they usually are. That's good, because the movie loo...

"4.0/VF"?? Is it raw or graded? For slabs, I use GoCollect (CGC & CBCS)- $5.99 p/month Another choice for CGC is GPAnalysis $9.99 p/month For raw books, I usually use Watchcount.com, but at the moment that site has a 403 error. Only a CGC 4.0 has been recorded as sold recently for $175...

Re: THIS WEEK IN YOUR COLLECTION

I purchased these 20"x16" pages from Mike Royer. They're an unpublished short story (1978) that Marvel reported "lost", then some time later "found" and returned to him. It was most likely designated for the Marvel Preview magazine (1975-1980). https://i.imgur.com/Sq9jd...

Very happy to 'meet' you! I'm also a Spidey can, but I stopped reading his titles (and pretty much all titles) around issue 375. When I returned to the hobby 10 years ago, I really didn't care for the product Marvel was putting out, and decided to stick with the comics and eras that I liked. Hope yo...

Re: Secret Wars #8

Correct, SW #8 is simply the origin of the symboite. ASM 252 & MTU 141 are the 1st appearances of the suit (though I believe ASM 252 actually came out like a week or two before MTU 141), Web of Spider-Man #18 is the 1st very minor appearance, or hinting, at Venom as it has a mysterious hand shov...

The store hosting the Ron Lim signing had a line for the the free comics going outside and stretching around the building. No thanks.
Instead I spent time going through their 50% off back issues.

I brought some of my OO Silver Surfers for Ron Lim to sign (mostly slash page except #75 and The Vault). I often bought an issue from the rack even though I had a pull list at the time, and I just brought the better looking of the two. I strongly considered bring my Thanos Quest books, but they real...
