I wanted to get all those covers signed on the same day for fun but Todd didn't want to sign the Spawn Thanks. Can't go into much details why but kinda PO but whatever. If anyone is interested in that asm 300 then send me an offer. I am not interested in that one anymore.

A couple Batman sets- I bought a 9.6-ish #404 from Flying Donut's $3 sale some years back. I have NO idea where it is- It's [i]possible]/i] I included it in a sale or as a freebie in a sale, so I had to get another just in case. It's not as nice though.

It would be nice if smaller images could post side to side.

The Simmonsons are so damn nice. Walt was a bit of a foul-mouthed old man though. First time I met them, I kept my composure even though I was fangirling on the inside. I live in Texas so I don't often see the people from the East Coast like the Simmonsons. I must have dumped about $200+ in their charity bag. Had four sketches(one I had to close my eyes because I gave it to my friend) and they both signed like ton and ton and ton of stuff for my wife and I.

Not really new, but it was forgotten. I must have separated it from my others back when I thought I'd be slabbing my collection.

IF I ever slab this, it will be at a convention, but there are soooo many 9.8s out there- the cost is better utilized at the art booths.
I know it's at least a 9.8- no need for me to pay for the risk of shipping it to someone paid to tell me what I already know before paying for the risk of shipping it back.

Obviously I'm too chicken to submit books lol

Has a very nice cover centering. That's a huge plus!

Hello everyone,

So I was able to procure a graded copy of this most beautiful book. I haven't been this smitten by a cover in quite a long time.

@ThorneArt awesome cover, that one. Hoping the price goes down a bit more before I get one.

Picked up ten of these NM newsstand books today. With the current trend, if five are 9.8s, ill be more than happy

Hopefully OA is acceptable here, if not, OP please excuse and I can remove.

New commission from instagram artist Crap Panther. "Vita est morte est vita". Death of Alec Holland, birth of Swamp Thing. (The initials of the two creators are hidden in the image).

Following the lead of @Odins_Raven, I am a big Bernie Wrightson fan and loved the original Swamp Thing series. I still can’t believe he is gone, or that around 35 years ago a “friend” of mine talked me into selling my entire set of Swamp Thing (1-24) along with my HOS #92. Stupid! Anyway, I recently sent CBCS a few Swamp Things from the second series for grading (#soon) and have been looking for an original #1 to buy.

I haven’t purchased a #1 yet, but I did purchase the following book that reportedly was signed by Wrightson. The book came in today’s mail and is in need of a good press to maybe reach a VG/FN-. Also, my name’s not Hannah, so if any of you have that name and want to trade me a similar book signed by him “To Ed” we should talk.

PS - Does the signature look legit?




And yesterday, after reading about this issue in the previews/new issues forums, I caved in and bought a new comic! I plan on reading this one, and it will probably be a while before I buy another new comic since this one was $7.99! It does have an awesome cover.

Won this statue last night. Wound up paying $20 over what I'd hoped to pay, but still got a deal on it. This will go great next to my Amazing Fantasy 15 sculpture.

Pic is from the listing since I don't have it in hand just yet.

@esaravo I have a VG Swamp Thing #1 I'd consider selling if you're interested.

Upgrades.
The ASM 51, "graded" @ 9.0 but fwiw looks more like 8.5 to me, was included with the 50.

Sorry for the interruption, but has anyone heard from DocBrown? Seems to have been awhile since his last post.

@det_tobor Looks like Doc got a two week suspension on 12/17, that explains his absence up to January.

I'm sure he's around.

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.

Clown next to a flowing gutter as Casper offers him a red balloon. It took a minute to realize this isn't a cool coincidence. For a moment I thought it was an actual cover from the bronze age, and thought it might've inspired King.
Cool idea!
