Ebay question - possible scam? drchaos 13 2 daysCopperAgeKids (1429): Tell him you want to talk on the phone, if he is serious, he'll send his n FWIW, I highly doubt eBay would do anything at all, besides emailing you with a warning. Kicking sellers off is something eBay only does if buyers complain about fraud etc. They make steady coin off sellers like you, it is antithetical to eBay's way of things to suspend sellers who cough over hundreds of dollars a month in fees. If you are still not sure, call eBay...

Your Top 10 Acquisitons of 2017 dielinfinite 30 9 daysThanatos (3010): It's ridiculous how difficult it is to find a copy of Zatanna #16 raw in ~9.8 condition. I still look at every copy that shows up on eBay just in case. That Hawkman 4, Four Color 596 and GL 87 were all pressed by Avery, he does great work. Getting two RaM #1 BAM variants signed by Roiland back this week that he pressed and both got 9.8s.

Average grade of title-less comics! bige31 9 4 monthsCopperAgeKids (1429): I kinda/highly doubt it would be an "INCOMPLETE" designation, on the label. The book, aassuming the back cover is as sharp as the rest of the front cover, looks to be in the Fine range. My guess is it would fetch a 1.0. Boy Commandos is a notoriously poor/slow seller, the grading fee would be a deal breaker. However, lower grade GA books by S & K , do sell around Overstreet in raw GD 2.0 and under. It is at least a $30 book...

Oh and for the price on the one above usually when I see these they want 100 or so for them so not too bad of a price on that.

Grade My Comic keefriffhards 10 6 monthsDarthLego (20485): I hate to say this, but your best bet (if your intention is selling it) is CGC Qualified Grade with the green label, with Qualified service they will grade the actual condition without automatically calling it an incomplete 0.5, that sounds like what you want from what you said. I would also recommend getting it pressed unless the pages are brittle.

And then Nicholas sold it later for about $2.5 mil because Nick wasn't making that great movies after.

Is CBCS Getting Higher Prices than CGC? keefriffhards 15 7 monthsZosoRocks (1261): really don't know how bad someone wants something, and how much they are willing to pay to get that success. I remember I sold a Marvin Gaye "What's Going On" LP for $51.00.....but that was way after I put it out there for $8.00 - which I thought would have beent he "going price". Come to find out, the LP was pressed at teh same location as the Promotional copies were made, thus this could be one of those...

"Sun" Shadows on Comics QuaBrot 6 10 monthsCFP_Comics (2488): They can be caused by dust or oxidation from the sun. In some instances, the sun can cause the edges to become brittle which would greatly impact the grade. In most cases they are done on a sliding scale, the greater the shadow and brittleness, the greater the impact on the overall grade. There is no way to say it is half a grade hit or one full grade, etc.

For me, Taskmaster has one of the more interesting power sets in the Marvel Universe. I wish that more people enjoyed the character. If they used him in the a Deadpool movie as the villain, and wrote his interaction like Joe Kelly did in the comics the character would become a major force. The banter between him and Deadpool in the Joe Kelly written comics is perfect.

TOM REILLY PEDIGREE a bit of proper history BLBcomics Jump to first page32Jump to last page 10 monthsOrbitCityComics (1480): It actually has to do with the way people pronounced the word detective. In the time Batman debuted the US was filled with newly arrived immigrants. They would struggle with DEtective, and shorthand it to DAtective, or just tective. How TEC27 was thought up COULD very well be based on this.

Motion Picture Funnies Weekly #1: worth? Despain 3 1 yearDespain (1225): @QuaBrot Thanks. So GPA has the 9.0 at $43,000. Wow. That's crazy. I thought it'd be closer to $200,000 because it's so scarce, and according to CGC it is indeed the first appearance of Namor; Marvel Comics #1 is the origin of Namor. I understand that the character isn't as popular as Spider-Man or Hulk, but Namor's first appearance is a lot more scarce. Hmm. Thanks again for looking up the GPA for me!

Grading Strictness Sliding Scale GAC 16 1 yearJWKyle (3292): @Jesse_O Great answers Jesse. If I remember correctly I've listened to interviews with Steve Borock where he basically stated the same thing. There is no Golden age "curve" but all books were not created equally and that is taken into consideration when grading. I do understand the argument though if I take a 9.6 modern and a 9.6 silver age book the modern will exhibit better eye appeal and seem to have almost no noticeable flaws.

What book did you tape? Huffmaster 21 1 yearThemaxx35 (1708): It wasn't tape, but I recently dropped an otherwise pristine copy of my favorite Adam Hughes variant. The glossy cover just slipped through my fingers as I removed it from the bag. Resulted in spine stress on the back cover. The irony was I was prepping the book to be signed and sent in for grading. Plans changed pretty quick. I am hoping the damage will press out, but still seething over that one.

Whiz Comics 6.5 on C'Link Sagii 11 2 yearsSagii (1561): @Stelbert_Stylton Yes, and it went under the radar for years before DC Comics made the character a mover and shaker in the DCU. And then the Dwayne Johnson rumors started too and 'Wham' hot book. That is the example I have always sighted as GA book affected by movie buzz. And like Resurrection said, six figure books are likely not really affected by movie buzz/box office ( unless you're Captain America Comics #1).

Beginning Of the Atomic/Atom Age PovRow 21 2 yearsPovRow (535): I see them very differently. Comics went through some big changes after the war with the decrease in superhero books (with the notable exception of DC) and many titles from various publishers shifting to horror themes. We also have Wertham and the Senate subcommittee hearing on the impact of comic books on juvenile delinquency, which led to the code and the shift, eventually, back to superheros. If you calculate (as I tend to) the Atom Age from...
