Re: WTB DIVINITY #1 LAROSA (1:40) 9.8

Your 9.6 looks great. Hopefully it gets sold. It sure beats the remaining raw copy on E-Bay with a couple of issues that probably drops the grade a little. Honestly, I will never understand what kind of Ouija board, coin flip, or rock-paper-scissors-lizard-spock game CGC uses to divine a 9.6 from a...

Re: Bloodshot available for digital download next week!

I finally watched the movie last night. I really enjoyed it, but it felt... I don't know... Short? Incomplete? Something. The movie was very fun though. No ulna to the neck though. :( Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk Yeah, I was totally expecting the broken ulna neck stab. That may have be...

Re: WTB DIVINITY #1 LAROSA (1:40) 9.8

If a raw went for $300, I figured I'd list my 9.6 at $295 and see what happens. It can't hurt to test the market, I suppose. If anyone is interested, I'll knock 5% off the price and cover the shipping.

Priority Mail got more expensive

After being raped by Ebay and Paypal, I went to ship the slabs as promised via Priority Mail. Which is now $15.05 each. Yikes. Over $30 to ship just two books. :!:

How are you guys shipping slabs these days?

Re: X-O Slabs heating up

I don't remember how many at this point. There's what you see there and I think 17 that didn't pass the 9.6 pre-screen. They all look pretty perfect to me... I wished I had just screened for 9.8 and then kept resubmitting.

It's funny how powerful a Tweet on the back issue market these days!
It's just silly.

The proud owner of that stack of X-O #1s that sold on eBay a couple of years ago has to be happy now.

X-O Slabs heating up

Since the Cena tweet, 9.8s have gone up around $75. On April 8, a few went for about $150 or less. I just sold one for $225 and a 9.6 for $69 plus shipping. I relisted a 9.6 at $79 to see what happens. Might hang back on 9.8s for a bit and see if the market climbs. And they called me crazy when I bo...

Re: OTV/VCR - Bloodshot Movie Review

I agree with a lot of the points you guys made... especially the nanites traveling back to reform the body part that was injured. And I felt that way since the first trailer. But it's more cinematic, I suppose.

Re: Saw something interesting Predator Vs Magnus

Yeah, ya can't start with Unity. You have to know the characters a little to have an appreciation of what's going on. Fortunately (or maybe not) there's not too much to read before Unity.

Harbinger is an easy start. It's a well known archetype.

There's a local 'second run' theater near me that usually has films after they've left the big chains. So there's still hope of seeing it in a theater. :hope: It's actually a little landmark in the area and absolutely gorgeous. And no trailers or commercials to sit through!

But why though? Creating comics seems like one of the only businesses that's relatively safe from the virus. How many people work in Valiant's office? 10?
