Re: Magnus 0 CGC - card or no?

She got a new laptop and in the process of migrating computers, she decided she is no longer happy with Comic Collector Live and moved to another program, which will involve re-entering our 90-or-so boxes of comics. She started with the slabs. She enjoys this sort of ontological pursuits. And she i...

Re: Magnus 0 CGC - card or no?

My wife was cataloguing a box of CGC slabs and we ran across a Magnus 0 CGC SS 9.6 slab. The label doesn’t say if the comic includes the card or not. Is it safe to assume that since the card is not mentioned on the label, that the comic does not have one? I think there is a more important question ...

Re: SHADOWMAN RETURNS APRIL 2021

That Shadowman preview was encouraging! I loved the direction of the story. Will definitely check it out. I still haven’t checked out the Diggle run. Cooled on Shadowman after End Times. Need to catch up. Since when can Jack make his mask materialize out of thin air on his face? Did I miss that? Any...

Re: CGC Signature Series Sketches on Blank Covers

Great insight. Thanks. I wonder if the best route is to have them just do original art. It seems like quite a process to do it in high grade on a comic cover.

Re: CGC Signature Series Sketches on Blank Covers

Super helpful. Thanks! I didn’t know that you could send directly to the artist with a SS invoice. That makes sense. $3k fir a famous artist. Wow. I assume in today’s day and age that’s how they make most of their $s. If I look at top VEI artists, I assume someone like Clayton Crain would be at the ...

CGC Signature Series Sketches on Blank Covers

Looking to understand how folks go about securing CGC SS Sketch Cover art from their favorite artists. I understand you need to have a CGC rep present when an artist is sketching a blank cover. Does this mean cons or comic shop signing (where the shop is an CGC submitter) are really the only locatio...

Re: I'm starting to think Bad Idea might actually be a terrible idea.

Bad Idea seems to be exclusive by design. That’s cool. That’s their thing. Quality over quantity. Not everybody’s thing, that’s for sure. But, they definitely own it. Dinesh has been around the block. The original team published amazing comics at Valiant. He is indeed doing this by design as I woul...

Re: The first BAD IDEA comic: HERO TRADE #1 by Lapham & Kindt out now.

I couldn’t get Pearl Jam’s special edition Animal CD when it came out in Seattle in 1994. I had to get the normal CD version. I didn’t boycott Pearl Jam nor did I ask Eddie to give me a copy because it was just not fair. I'll bite. What mysterious special edition of "Animal" are you talking about h...

Re: The first BAD IDEA comic: HERO TRADE #1 by Lapham & Kindt out now.

It does seem like this has not gone exactly as planned. Getting noticed is great but creating angst and anger in some of the people that would normally be some of the largest evangelizers for the brand and product is not great. Seems like there should be a better way. That’s the point. It should no...

Re: The first BAD IDEA comic: HERO TRADE #1 by Lapham & Kindt out now.

So much angst. Bad Idea is getting noticed. That is good for us who want it to succeed so we can read great stories from kick-ass artists. I am a crazy completionist and find myself spending too much on getting Valiant variants. However, I’m not at all angst ridden about not getting a Hero Trade (an...

Re: Shadowman Classic Omnibus Volume 1

Love the cover. I think it is new art, no? Usually the omnibus’ feature a popular cover # 0 or 1 from the run. This one seems to be new art ... follows the style of the issue 4 unity cover art of jack crashing through a window.

This peeks my interest. Who’s name should not be spoken? Wouldn’t this person by a legend for such a cool project?
