For what should be a rather mediocre book for the most part, its scoring on GPA
9.2 378
9.0 455
8.5 318

Even at 6.0 its a 160 dollar conversation....The best guess is either the good girl art cover, or the fact that aqualad becomes aquamans partner this issue?

Something seems to be going on. I noticed a couple months ago that it's selling for as much as the Solomon Grundy SA first in Showcase 55. Not sure why.

which is such an undervalued book. I think when people start waking up to the golden age characters, their silver age appearances should follow suite

Someone posted this in one of the cover contests and the cover just stuck with me, so I found it today.

Sorry to hear that....I was going to go raw, but didn't want to gamble on things being partially attached...held out for a blue label, took a while to find the right one with everything intact at a high grade and right price. Really happy with it.

As much as I do not like the fact they handled their Vertigo label before getting rid of it, titles like this is something I would like to see more of.

Plus the game you asked about will be submitted to Wata. I am just holding off on that so I can focus on getting Street Fighter III: Third Impact first. It's a long story...

Just got this , 1st appearance of James Rhodes also always wanted John Byrne signature but didn’t want to pay the current prices so I got this for less than I would’ve paid for his signature alone.Boo Yaa!

Here is a key issue that nobody here will care about. Compliments of NewKadia.com. And as they say... The second part tends to be more liked than the first!

In this case it is an upgrade of what I used to have. And is also a key issue that fans of Vertigo should look into.

Just came in the mail today! I’d been waiting for a big She-Hulk collection like this for a while. I paid a little more for it than I’d like for a book this size but I didn’t want to wait and risk it going out print and only costing more later on

Thanks! I was partially joking about nobody caring. Especially since this issue is the first series (second issue; with Vertigo Previews #1 being the first) to use the Vertigo banner. Plus it is the first Sandman tie-in, first appearance of Death (as Didi), and it is Chris Bachalo's second regular run as a comic artist. (The first was "Shade, The Changing Man".)

Plus seeing what type of service they offered I also ended up ordering two more key issues from them. So I am hoping to find more of what I want from them in the long run.

I’ve wanted one of these for a while. The earliest comic book adaptation of ‘The Invisible Man’ I’ve been able to find, April of 1955.

It’s only in Good, or G/VG condition, but I didn’t pay much for it after using my e-bay bucks. I’d love to upgrade it eventually, but it’s just a cool oddity.

This finally arrived from Comic Connect after a one month wait.

Lost out on an auction for a 9.6 File Copy (2nd Print) & grabbed this first Print to ease the pain.

Just won this at auction. The Emerald City Comic-Con exclusive variant for Lady Killer #1.

I now have all 3 covers for this book!

I’d seen people promote it as having a print run of only 500 copies. This isn’t noted in the description on MyComicShop, or other retailers, so I wrote it off as speculation. But today I was able to find an article on Comic Book Resources that seems to confirm the limited run.

In any case, I’m happy to have it. This will most likely be included in my next submission.

@HeinzDad

The last 2 covers I wanted by Peach, the stuff was sold out under 5 minutes. Someone said it was sold out in under 2 minutes. I had signed in to PayPal and was refreshing the second it started and still couldnt get the remarked books.

Competition at comic mint is fierce for sure.

It was my fault I kind of forgot. The dog has been flipping out over fireworks. He crushed a nail last night and bled all over, at 1:50 he opened it back up lunging at the tv. Bastard comic blocked me.

Hopefully your dog is okay.

I hate these fireworks and I know pets hate them even more.
