So I'm sure I'm not unlike many of you in that I have a list of books I'm trying to find at just the right price. I'd love to hear what books everyone's looking for and if it helps a few people get the books they're looking for then all the better for everyone, I think!

I would say the book I'm currently most on the lookout for is a low-grade Avengers #4. I've let it slip through my fingers a couple of times in the past few months that I'm still kicking myself for. mycomicshop.com has a couple of copies I almost bought but they each have some defects that kinda put me off. The search continues but I don't think it's too long now before I add it to my collection

An affordable Golden Age Cap. I've got my eye on some on eBay, but I just haven't found that "one" yet. I'm also working on completing my Cap volume 1 collection. Plus, a series of "themed" comics that I'm actually quite excited about!!

I'm not very familiar with that issue but it is a really awesome cover!

You're telling me! I was lucky to get my book a year or two ago. I paid about $150 for a raw copy and it came back a 4.0 from CBCS. I look on ebay now and they want like $300 for a 1.8!

I had a comic dealer buddy of mine come across a beat up copy with a detached cover MAYBE a 2.0-3.0 max...he said he would sell it to me for $180. I instantly said SOLD! Then 2 days later I asked him when I could swing by his house to give him the money and he had sold it out from under me for $400. Needless to say, I was furious.

Same thing with Flash 123...bid on a toilet paper copy missing two pages and it sold for $120. Ridiculous. My max bid was $65

I should probably do some catching up ... I could've sworn Gwen died 40+ years ago.

It was a series of special anniversary variants featuring covers depicting the key moments in ASM.

@Gaard Amazing Spider-Man 692 was the 50th anniversary issue and had several colored variants depicting key moments in the character's history including Peter getting bitten by the radioactive spider, Spider-man joining the Avengers, encountering the alien symbiote, and a red cover depicting Gwen Stacey's death

I'm trying to find a Fathom vol. 1 #14 DF connecting cover variant without the foil logo for a reasonable price. I've found one on eBay that's reasonable, but it's in Canada and they want $20 for shipping.

COLLECTOR dielinfinite private msg quote post Address this user
@DarthLego I've bought a few books from Canada in recent months. The shipping has been pretty high on a couple but the item itself was priced reasonably enough that it was still a pretty good deal altogether. I take it that's not the case with your Fathom book?

Superman 14 is a great book. My current want, but cannot afford anytime soon is Captain Marvel Adventures 1 restored. Sigh

Thanks Swampy. I was tempted to PM the guy this morning, but I gotta little scared because he is brand new to the forum. I might send him a message later.

I have been buying comics since I was old enough to read, and have bought, sold, and traded hundreds over the years. My biggest regret is selling an X-Men #1 (VF/NM) almost 35 years ago for $400 to my LCS. A college friend of mine was getting married and I needed air fare to Buffalo. I had a great time at that wedding, but wish I had come up with a better plan on getting to it. I still think that I will replace that book one of these days.

It is a very difficult book to find, especially in blue label.

Looking for an affordable mid-grade raw X-Men 94. I've kind of suspended my search temporarily though because I just got back from vacation, so funds are a little tighter than I'd like them to be.

Once I've recovered though, I'll likely resume my hunt at Amazing Comic Con Houston in September.
