Re: The Devil's Thread: Matt Wagner's Grendel

I have been out of the loop for a while, just saw these news. Its awesome that its happening. I think. More exposure to the comic, probably a shiny new pritnting of all the rare stuff (Omnibus, please) and MW might even start a new series or something. That said, i don't really care for the adaptat...

Re: Any idea what's going on with MONOLITH from BAD IDEA

I saw Lewis Larosa posting on Instagram within the last month or so that he had run into some serious back pain troubles this year, and that it impacted his ability to work on finishing that series. So maybe the delay in announcing anything about it was a result of that situation. That’s awful. If ...

Re: Any idea what's going on with MONOLITH from BAD IDEA

Well, they’re exchanging a rock for a first in line gold button currently, which is pretty hilarious. Maybe they’ll reveal later that the “rock” is Monolith.

Re: WTB Matt Kindt Dept H #1 Blindbox Sketch Variant

One of the htf variants (limited to 150) is on eBay for $250. I offered $200 to the seller who kindly declined. I’d like the book but I’m not sure I want to shell out $250. Anybody have an idea as to the value of this book? I’d pay much more if it were the original art variant limited to 50 copies. ...

Re: Discuss Hard To Find Or Currently Hot Comics Of Any Era

Comic Primer 2 (first Grendel) is on fire! Raw copies are nearly $1K. Years ago I was on the hunt for a high grade copy and best I could find is a 9.0 (after pressing and grading). That black cover is tough. A 9.2 sold this week for $1750. An old label 9.4 sold for a best offer listed at $2200 (so ...

How about the X-O Manowar VEI issue #1 error comic…. I believe it is a second printing (with the error on the inside saying it is a “first printing”). Were these caught and kept? Or, did some of the errors get out to the public? In other words, Is it worth checking these second printing comics out ...

Re: Bad Idea Gold Pins

I counted 378 Bad Idea participating retailer stores per their website. 200 might be off, but the print run for each of these books has to be ridiculously low. Besides, wouldn’t all this effort for a low print run be a bad idea…

WTB Matt Kindt Dept H #1 Blindbox Sketch Variant

If anybody has a copy they’d be willing to part with (or know of a copy online), please send me a DM. These came out a couple of years ago with the now-defunct blindbox series. I bought a box but did not end up with one of the sketch covers.

Thanks!
