I did. Overpaid I’m sure because of the hype but what the heck.

@Comicnewbie @OGJackster only future will tell but I will almost bet that in 2 months or less they will sell for $5 or less on ebay

The grade is stated as NM+. I am not qualified by any stretch of the imagination to agree or disagree. I went by the fact he had 100% feedback on 2000+ transactions as a seller.

@poka I believe I once maybe overpaid for one of your books too. To be fair it’s a tendency of mine.

lol - just seen it too many times with these independents that they shoot up for a short time after optioned announcements etc and quite often nothing more happens.

Which reminds me I could not sell my Heathen #1 for below cover price sso I put them away in my remote storage. It is going to be a pain finding them again and by the time I find them - prices are probably back to where they were before

no need for apologizing.

The value of that one will depends on the movie - so can go either way.

Anyway - still a nice one

The best way is if you check slabs already graded. I found this one useful although need to just treat as one step for you to get better. https://coursecraft.net/c/comicbookgrading/splash

The course goes through all grades from 0.5 to 9.8

Don't know what he is currently charging but sometimes he has offer on the course and might be a good investment if you buy a lot and need a starting point. There is also some interaction with regard to grading where you will assign a grade and they will tell you whether they agree with your grading or not
