Re: Curious...did any filmmakers comment on how trailer gave the movie away?

You know, everything that occurred in this movie did not actually occur. It was yet another simulation/program. So, no matter what was good or bad about the movie we saw, Bloodshot 2 can easily have an entirely different look/feel/style with different (or the same even) characters because it was all...

Re: Dr Tomorrow #4 (2020)

I actually have enjoyed Doctor Tomorrow so far. It is certainly not historically aligned with what we are familiar with or have come to expect from Valiant; however, I do not dislike the book the same way I did Psi-Lords and Dead Drop. I would have loved this book as a kid, and sort of look forward ...

Re: DBS's 100% CONFIRMED "Rare" Print Run Info

You might want to put a note/disclaimer in the beginning of the very first post that while these are the number that were printed that copies beyond those earned, used for damages and given as comps to artists/partners the rest of the print run was destroyed. The actual number of these books that e...

Dino’s quote about Harbinger 8 1:120 Lemire Variant:

I take the above statement as meaning there were 500 printed in total (180 earned plus 320 for extras, giveaways, etc.) of Harbinger 8 1:120
You are 100% right, and all posts have been corrected to reflect this.

Re: 2020 CGC Registry Awards

So the number of pages may also have something to do with initial point-value and scores. For example, a 24 page new book might receive a baseline score of 24 points (until a request is made with documented sales records to justify a point-value increase), whereas my Life and Death of Toyo Harada 9....

Re: 2020 CGC Registry Awards

CGC is also hit/miss on correcting/updating the registry.

They used to take MONTHS to update; then they hired a new guy and it took days.

However, now we are back again to it taking MONTHS to update.

Re: DBS’s “VEI Top 10” - July 2020

I always appreciate these lists and look forward to them every month. I was thinking back to the Wizard Top 10. It wasn’t just based on sales but what was hot. Got me wondering why would the top 10 hit list look like if it was based on what people are looking for (as we know some of the books peopl...

How were the print runs for the glass variant confirmed. Missed that. Thanks!
I spoke with two senior VEI employees, who would not (as a matter of policy) give me exact print run numbers; however, they did provide a range for all 1:250s printed (so far) which was 180-200.

Re: DBS’s “VEI Top 10” - July 2020

Nice to see some glass on there! Now that we have confirmation on the approx. print runs for the Glass/Mirror variants I believe that buyer confidence has increased somewhat in these books. CGC not grading the Glass/Mirror was a hard blow IMO that has hurt collector demand for them a bit. However, ...
