My December 6th submission (103 books) just moved to Grading! Yay! Time to celebrate...with more new comics!

ASM #298-300, because why not? The 298 & 299 are really nice, the whitest covers I’ve seen on these outside of a slab in a long time. I have 298 & 299 being graded right now, but whatever they come out at, I think these two will grade out higher. The 300 looks fantastic, no spine ticks or corner creases, but the red has some fade to it. Still a fantastic copy. It also helps that I got all three at a great price.

Dark Knights Metal, the foil cover first prints & one-shots. I’m not a huge Batman fan, but these look great. It’s the first Batman event I’ve found myself enjoying since Knightfall. When the Metal run is over I’m getting the books graded & framed, then having the frames mounted to a Bat-Symbol I’m having a metal shop cut out of polished stainless diamond deck. I’m going to float that over a black wood base w/ LED backlighting. Man-cave wall decor, writ-large.

The Dell’Otto Venom Inc. Alpha & Omega. These are getting graded & framed up; they look great & are a nice wall piece.

Cool idea!

Friend of mine just closed on a house, I got him this for his cave.




This was an impulse buy, I might get it pressed and try to flip it.

Artist name is Alan Quah - his work is extremely difficult to get hold of. I was lucky with this one

Some more books to ad to my Black Widow mini-series sets plus one for the Harleys. Some could use a press but that can wait

Nice - how many copies do you have now?

@poka 11. I’m all done buying for now, paid about $8 per and most are NM+. Did pretty well!

I **WISH** CBCS had a fast pass that was actually fast 😔 and $40 for a 2-day modern is too much. I just cannot wait that long and am really torn about having to open a CGC account. Idk what to do. CBCS having a census with newsstands was really great, but who knows if that will ever happen; I’d really rather not send any newsstands anywhere else in hopes of that :/

@shrewbeer Gotta tell ya' man, I'm nerding out over the comics *and* the kitchen. I'm renovating this fall & it looks like I picked the same glass tile backsplash you did (though I went for a lighter granite). Nice pickup sir. Well done.

First ever magazines graded and the grades were higher than my guesstimates. All 3 were eBay purchases that will go on my comic room wall eventually. I figure I will find some more worthy of submission, as it was a successful experiment.

That Savage Tales #1 looks sharp! Better than my 9.6.

@MR_SigS thanks it’s an awesome cover. The disappointing thing is the back has ink from the artist which dinged it down in the grade. But Bill usually takes a lot of my money at cons. But his prices are ridiculously good for what you get.

Just an observation for JustABitEvil in Post 785. I noticed there is a "star" near the 15 cent label on your Avengers 87. I was an Air Force brat back in the late 60s at Bitburg Air Force Base in Germany. I have many comics from that era with the same "star." It signified, I believe, that the comic was from a Base Exchange (BX), i.e., the Armed Forces Exchange. Not sure where your comic originated specifically, but thought others with similar stamps might be enlightened.

I already have 3 NM copies of Gambit's 1st appearance, so I figured it was time to get the hotter 2nd appearance despite the fugly parallelogram miscut.

I collect covers where characters are surrounded by a circle of enemies, so the 'Tec 411 fits.
Plus Talia, of course.
Fortunately, I'm satisfied with low grade 'keys' or 'hot' books if need be (you should see my Iron Man 55).
When it comes to DC I'm late to the party, being a Marvel fan as a kid and only giving DC's top titles a cursory glance. But that's okay because, while more expensive than if I were a life long fan, it's fun collecting Batman titles. In fact, I'd buy a modern Batman TPB before a modern Marvel TPB without hesitation. I'm sure Marvel has decent reads- don't light the torches , but for me right now, Bats is cooler. It just took me a while to truly appreciate how cool this non-powered hero is.

I like collecting the 1st appearances of Marvel's cosmic comic characters, and needed the ST 138

Some impulse upgrades, since they were affordable.
I've decided to actively hoard at least 4 similarly conditioned copies of 'hot' books because I have 4 grandchildren. Lord knows if they'll even care to keep them when the time comes, but wth, it's fun.

Upgrading my FINE-ish WBN 32 isn't likely to happen any time soon since that kind of money can be used for other biggies, and I like the cover for 33 more anyway, so at almost half of 2017's GPA avg, :takeit:
However, it's interesting to learn what measure of corner creases are allowed on VFs at CGC. Would a CBCS 8.0 have a 3/4" corner crease? Serious question.

The Spider-Woman 1 is just a great cover- There's something more aesthetically pleasing about her look from other curvy female characters of the BA, and Romita scored a bullseye with the art.

And obviously I'll want each of the kids to have a copy of Sandman #1, so I got another.
