I do love me some Conan The Barbarian! Ive been picking away here and there at the Title. Looking to make a run of #1-100

Again the Batman Year One Storyline is a favorite as well.

The Prestige Format Batman Cult books are highly unrated books IMHO and are great pick ups as Well!

I have some very nice unread Sets of Batman: The Cult if anyone is interested in a set.

Here is my current Conan run



I didn't even notice that the web version hadn't added in the 2 I just bought. The desktop version did but I hadn't synched them.

I was never a fan of Doctor Strange until I started reading the Strange Tales books. The battle leading up to and concluding in this issue is epic. Great great stuff.

I'm not a big X-men fan...but I always loved this cover since the day it came out. My copy was 9.2 at best...so I waited for my price on ebay.

This is one comic that I'm not looking to sell ever, so 9.6 is good enough (not paying 9.8 price for this).

A couple of McFarlane covers that I had to have. Waited for the right price for Hulk 340...Copy has a few spine ticks, but pages are white and no other distracting defects.

ASM 316 on the other hand was advertised as a 9.6...turns out it has about 4-5 spine ticks that are barely visible, but more concerning is a 1/4" crease that breaks color near the bottom spine that wasn't disclosed, and I believe the photo of the area in the listing angled the camera just right to mask it. I'd probably let it go (as I bid for about a 9.2 price) but the pages are also OW to tan. Going to try to send this one back, but seller "does not offer returns" and so far hasn't responded to my request (giving it 48 hrs).

Too bad about the Spidey #316. I don't blame you for sending it back.

The X-Men and Hulk Books on the other hand look Very nice.

@Drogio Maybe it is your OWL which has started to get tanned -

Nah, it's made with the higher quality archival stock acid free paper 😛

I have noticed that both cbcs and cgc grade a bit on a sliding scale as far as what is considered white vs. off white. They don't follow the owl card and have their own scales, I believe. The card is useful when making a point, though, that it's clearly not white as it provides contrast.

Seller agreed to take it back, so we're good. My bad for not asking for a pic of the interior, though. Especially since most raw asm 316s I see on eBay that provide a pic of the interior are clearly in the off white range. Something up with the paper quality that month!

Spent the weekend in Maine with the wife. She wanted to do some Christmas shopping in the Freeport and Kittery areas. Stopped at a used bookstore and found nothing, and even found a used comic store south of Portland (overpriced mostly reader-quality books) where I only purchased two (empty) BCW short boxes.
Luckily, I had stopped at my LCS on Friday before we left. They were having a sale and I found these two comics:







Not perfect, but at a price I couldn’t pass up.

Please tell me that scribble mark at the top isn't something trying to pass as a signature

Yeah his sig isn't what it used to be.

What's scarier, and I know this sounds weird, but if you're not careful... or rather, if he's not careful, his signature can look like a dick. So you'll get this dick sketch on a book that you a)probably paid a lot of money for and b) paid $100 for him to draw.

Mazz doesn't sign books. Nice.

Another d-bag creator who can't be bothered to do something nice for the fans that supported his work.
