It was something I always wanted, always knew I needed, and even tried a few times to research and purchase, but never pulled the trigger on.

I know all of us in the FORUM have some rare and expensive comic books $2,000.00 on up and I'm willing to bet those books slabbed or raw are in a safe place a very safe place.

Your 2022 Year in Review dielinfinite 25 2 yearsStudley_Dudley (49421): I don't recall what all I had planned for. I did find a small checklist of runs that I intended to finish off in 2022. I'm sure that I had other stuff in mind as well. Among the incomplete goals were to finish the price variant runs of Dazzler and Thing. I think I'm halfway through Thing and only have a few UK price variants remaining for Dazzler. Otherwise, I picked up a few keys. The GSX 1 was hefty, and I shouldn't have gotten rid of my...

Comic Book Production Numbers Kosmo 10 2 yearsThreeSeas (145): Kosmo, to answer your question, I do not think that DC ever willingly gave out their print run information and only did it when they were required to by the post office. So unless some collector or historian found it and posted it, you may not ever find more than the statement of ownership. Eventually I'll get to scanning my newer comics (from the 80's and 90's) and I'll make a note to post any SOO's that I come across here. Right now in...

Ebay Oddity dielinfinite 28 2 years50AE_DE (6464): The cases look legit but the labels are cheesy. The cases look much better than the comic skin garbage, but I do like the labels on comic skins than this one.

Curious... What is the MINIMUM Slab Grade You Allow When Purchasing? MurrayC 13 3 yearskidhuman (1438): I have never purchased a slabbed book. For modern, I feel someone will have a raw copy given all the online stores out there. If I was to buy an older, bronze, silver etc. It would depend on the book and all. An Xmen #1, if I happen to have the $$$ at the time, I would go low grade, 1.0 but it would all depend upon the mood, the cover itself since that is what would be displayed mostly, and the timing of everything.

Thoughts on the new “Chinatown” pedigree. CatmanAmerica 16 4 yearsCatmanAmerica (30409): There's also Mile High ( Edgar Church) which is a separate pedigree from the Denver pedigree.

Revising a pedigree should not be a big deal. .

I'd want a good look at that color break on the right. 22 seems the best one to me. I would go for a bundle deal too.

On the other hand, you at least saw those books! I didn't have a lot of options looking for low numbered X-Men, even if I wasn't going to pull the trigger on much.

These 3 Batman books would sell very quick. Knowing that it might make sense to look at one of the other books like Whiz Comics that might be in even a higher grade than those and this way you do not sell the 3 most desirable books first...

Perhaps the underlying question is, do his fans think he SHOULD kill and why or why not? I'm sure if Batman were real (which sorry Scott Snyder he isn't) he would defend himself...

Medical emergencies can distract you and make you not think as clearly. Google used to be good. It's pathetic now. It gives search results that don't even include the words I enter into the search engine. They got rid of the "+" sign for searching and the closest substitute is putting words in quotes. Even that gives poor results.
Golden age advice Roarshack 27 5 yearsCatmanAmerica (30409): That's a tough call grading wise, but if I were providing a ballpark guess based on appearance it would be around 50% of the value of the same book with similar wear and a fully attached cover. :beer::)

But for those who dislike pressed books, reholdering the book in a slab with a larger inner well is as best as it can be. A book like that, in a mylite2 & full back will have the same stress on the spine as it would, in its' current slab. Cracking it out will not change anything.

Clearly a 95 year old man can never have enough income, geritol is pricey. Never lined up for a signature, now for sure I never will. Bad taste.

Ebay Bucks! kaptainmyke 16 6 yearsCopperAgeKids (3717): Actually, your offer of $400 was not even close to "lowball". The seller was asking the moon for the book at $1000.

That paid what I would consider to be slightly below FMV or FMV. IMO, it is a solid $425 slab. The seller...

What kind of hit on grade would this be QuaBrot 6 6 yearsdoog (8378): Might seem unfair, but my experience with both companies is that golden age books take less of a hit on this than silver and newer. Less of a hit on pretty much everything, so maybe 1 grade.

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.

There is no way to say it is half a grade hit or one full grade, etc.

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 7 yearsOrbitCityComics (1483): 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.

The Most Affordable Pedigrees? DarthLego 15 7 yearssuckerv (88): Did they really? I have a Penn. Dutch Ms. Marvel. How would they go about verifying its authenticity? Mine came with a little notation on the invoice. I ask because the only option in the pull down menu when submitting a book is the "Pennsylvania Copy," which I assume is the actual Steve Geppi Pennsylvania Pedigree. Would I just put in under the variant?

I'd probably resell it.

Motion Picture Funnies Weekly #1: worth? Despain 3 7 yearsDespain (1618): @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!
Why is the OWL card still outdated? DarthLego 5 7 yearsBrianGreensnips (14746): @shrewbeer That makes sense. I have never scene where it says to not consider using the OWL card and this years Overstreet is the only one that I missed in awhile. I have a couple OWL cards and besides newer stock materials being used I still think it would be useful. I will have to look closer at last years Overstreet. Thanks for the info.

Grading Strictness Sliding Scale GAC 16 8 yearsJWKyle (3300): @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 8 yearsThemaxx35 (2510): 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 8 yearsSagii (8262): @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 8 yearsPovRow (568): 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...
