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.

You talk about how the US is now "ranked below all other major countries" (without even defining what a "major country" is...that is, it's just a talking point)...and then try and tie that into "what is best for yourself" is "inherently flawed."

Saturn Girl is coming to Supergirl. det_tobor 8 4 monthsdet_tobor (652): The tv version is doing better than the comic version for content. Bringing in a quality Martian Manhunter, a variety of aliens on Earth, better stories and guest actors. This tv version of Superman has more of the Christopher Reeves style personality than the current movie version, even though his costume is the modern movie style.

Do you think (???) to add filler to the books to make them look more like adult magazines of the time?

What grade would you give ASM 30? QuaBrot 20 6 monthsthecollector1 (4): The real question you have to ask is are you slabbing for future sale or just to confirm the grade. If so, i would have one of top dealers in your area grade it out. if its not a 9.2 or better there's no value in slabbing to confirm it.
Score of the weekend Thearrow 7 6 monthsearthshaker01 (5695): @conditionfreak #1 you can find, #2 is harder to get, but The Tortise and the Hare is even tougher. Dan O'Neill told me The Tortise and the Hare is really Air Pirates Funnies #3, but due to lawsuit they renamed it. They are all tough to find in high grade.9.4 or above. I think all the ones I have aquired are easily 9.4 to 9.8. Plus if things go well I'll have atleast 3 of the 4 artists signed on the cover when I am all done next week.

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...

Stolen comics report ivegotneatstuff 18 10 monthsearthshaker01 (5695): Well let's keep it in perspective were talking comics not the Hope diamond. No surprise the only people that care about a stolen comic are a few comic collectors and the guy that owns the comic. I mean if it had a ton of value it would be insured. If it's not worth very much no one is going to say they found a stolen comic even if they could identify it.
"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.

1st Cameo vs 1st Full Apperance KingNampa Jump to first page54Jump to last page 10 monthsTowmater (3565): They can be had for next to nothing compared to Hulk #180's. 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.

The Most Affordable Pedigrees? DarthLego 15 11 monthssuckerv (88): Did they really? I have a Penn. Dutch Ms. Marvel. How would they go about verifying its authenticity?

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.

Where to get size guide (check trimming)? QuaBrot 4 1 yearPovRow (535): Basically the centerfold should stick out a little more and, as you approach the first/last page (this is when the book is folded normally) gradually stick out less. It forms a > shape when looked at edgewise from the top or bottom. Just get a newspaper and you will see it easily. Some books have the illusion of being trimmed because more art is cut off on the right edge or the top or bottom. This can be caused by mis-wrapping where the...

How do you grade comics with loose pieces? kaptainmyke 20 1 yearkaptainmyke (12205): What's interesting to me is the prices of ASM jacked up tremendously from last years guides to this year. So, that 1.5 grade last year was worth around $1500 but this year shot up to $3500. This book will continue to go up in value so the 1.5 grade doesn't bother me much. Intrinsically being unrestored and complete is evident. When I bought the book, it was alleged as a 2.5 but when it changed hands the book literally was so fragile it...

Newsstand marks on older books jmh722 11 1 yearesaravo (7612): If you look at the CBCS grading guidelines, a comic in Fine/Very Fine condition can have one fairly obvious defect if the rest of the book is okay. So it's entirely possible that the books could at least grade at 7.0. If you can obtain them at the cost of a lower grade than that, like a 5.0 or 6.0, it should be worth it.
