Re: Bloodshot (2019) #2 discussion

I couldn't even get through issue #1 so I'm not going to bother with this one. So is everybody missing Jeff Lemire at this point? I know some complained during his runs on Bloodshot Reborn and Bloodshot Salvation but I always found them very readable and, overall, I really enjoyed them. These new bo...

On eBay Lewis LaRosa SAVAGE #2 Full-Splash Page Original Art

Hey Folks, I am selling a beautiful full splash-page of original art by the great Lewis LaRosa from SAVAGE #2 on eBay with no reserve. The auction ends tomorrow evening MONDAY NOVEMBER 4th so not much time to go. The price is currently $125.50 which, to put it bluntly, is a helluva lot less than I p...

Re: VALIANT AUGUST SALES!!

As a Valiant fan it is unfortunate to see this. But weren't sales numbers in the 5K - 6K range for most of the Valiant titles even under the old regime? I'm not talking about the first issues and stuff that sold well but, generally, once most series got going I don't think the numbers were much high...

Re: Is there any continuity now?

It definitely feels like everything's disconnected and meandering in directions. I'm pretty close to giving up on Valiant. I know a few good creators are coming but I'm not sure it's enough. I am just coming back in after taking six months off from reading Valiant. Really enjoying Incursion and am ...

Re: Incursion #2 Discussion

I took about a six-month break from reading VEI titles but recently read the first two issues of Incursion and have really enjoyed it. I didn't realize it was a Gilad & Geomancer book. Fun read thus far! I hope it maintains the quality.

Re: WTS: VEI Variants CGC Graded

Thanks for looking! And, yes, I always liked that Harbinger #6 1:20 cover. That is a really clean copy that I thought could get a 9.8. Oh well! We're always at the mercy of the CGC graders. :-)

Still some very nice deals there if anybody else is interested.

One of the last variants I need to complete this set (besides the #25 Perlin/Hitch). I'm looking for a quality, high grade version of this bad arse book, can be either CGC or raw. PM me if you're interested in selling. I have a copy of this book in CGC 9.0. I realize it's probably not the condition...

Yes, I believe he has sold on eBay before under another seller name and got into a bit of trouble here with the grading of the books. There was a thread about it here about a year (maybe more?) ago.

Yeah, that A&A #10 is another really tough under appreciated variant. I was bummed that one didn't grade a bit higher but they're tough to find in any condition.

Some VERY nice slabs went tonight for (I'll say) bargain prices! The Harby #25 and Shadowman #13 1:50's could have easily gone for a bit more and TBH I'm sort of surprised they didn't. Congrats to the winner(s) and to you as well. Thanks to all bidders! I was very pleased with the final results. Ye...

Re: I am Selling Some VEI Variant Slabs on Ebay this Week

Hey guys, just bumping my sale thread one last time. Most of these auctions end tonight (Monday 5/15) with a few more ending tomorrow night. Most of them are dirt cheap. No reserves on anything so these will all sell even if it's just for the 99 cents minimum bid. Good luck to all bidders!
