He’s either naive, or playing games.

I asked him to send a pic of the inside cover. No response yet.


OfferUp---> that say it all, scam, like craigslist, lol
and yes that is a Crate reprint.
also here a link for any one not to get ripoff with that comic.
clickable text


It has no price on the cover and the original has yellow fenders. I don't think any reprints have yellow fenders.

I'm also in CT. Let me know where I can pick it up. Offer $5 which I think may be the going rate for this loot crate reprint.

Such a weird story. I understand there are scammers out there but this is way over the top. How on Earth could this guy think this is an original AC 1 or that he could fool someone into believing it is? What price is he offering it at??? MCS does sell their consignment comics both on their website and ebay at the same time.

He wanted to know what I’d give him for it. (Red flag)

I literally received the pic of the Action Comics 1 as I was posting this thread.

To be clear, the first Action Comics he sent me pics of is a later issue at 4.5 in a Purple label slab, not the reprint of #1.

I thought it was possible he had the same issue, but sent a pic off the web at the moment just to say “here’s one I have. Not this specific copy, but this issue.

Still a weird move, but at least it would explain things.

1000 yen, shipped. Has to be priority mail insured, though.

My brother did this to someone. Picked a bar in providence and when the guy got there he texted back

“I’m not coming but you can sit there with a drink imagining how awesome it would have been if you got to [know me carnally.]”
