Re: More Slabs Ending Sunday Night

I love the Build a Bear Bloodshot and the comic with the Build A Bear on the cover. It was an off the wall gimmick.

Re: What comics are you reading now?

I picked up some of the TMNT trades from IDW on Comixology. And those books are actually really good. Probably gonna follow the series in trade now. That series is quite good! I have read up to around issue #25 or so to date. I was a tad too old for the era of TMNT cartoons and toys etc, but I have...

Re: Top 10 Selling Valiant Books of 2020

Thanks for complying the list DBS.

I think I might be addicted and in need of help as I have a CGC 9.8 copy of all 10 books in both lists.

Re: RE: Selling the rarest CGC 9.8 Old Valiant released book on eBay!

I tried and would have gone higher. I hate that eBay doesn’t extend an auction by X seconds, it’s the fastest sniper! I assume you were the bidder just under me. Having sat around $200 we likely all thought our snipes would have been more than enough. Had the book been at a live auction where time ...

Re: RE: Selling the rarest CGC 9.8 Old Valiant released book on eBay!

I was the under bidder with a snipe at $2,222. Figured it would be high enough as it was sitting at 210. Problem with time set auctions on big items as they don’t allow for continued bidding like Heritage or ComicConnect Anyone here win this book? I did get the two deathmate greens, Deathmate epilog...

Did someone here win the Magnus 64 newsstand? I hope someone on here got it.

I am evidently out to lunch on newstand values. I put a snipe in just above $150 and was nowhere close to the closing price.

The sales post is from 8 years ago and the guy hasn't been on this site in two months. Think your chances are low but you could try messaging him and hope he has it forwarded to his email that he has received a message.

Re: another unseen VH1 item..

So I was mostly right. It is a copy that has been colored but before being colored it was reinked, which was the part I missed. I am not involved in the original art world of comics but as this piece is not the original art doesn’t that diminish its value tremendously? I mean it’s great it has been ...

Re: Magnus #5 (1991) cover sells for $10,000+

I have been wondering the same thing. The prices of so many items in the $1,000s, $10,000s of dollars just seems strange to me. There really are not that many people out there who can afford to spend a small fortune on comics. Capgemini says the High Net Worth Population globally is ($1 million to $...

Updated for purchases.

I am surprised Eternal Warrior, Turok and X-O Manowar make up half my outstanding issues. I would have thought they would have been some of the easier titles to acquire.

Not my auction (and I already have one otherwise I would have bought it in a heart beat). A CGC 9.8 copy of the Punk Mambo 1 1:100 flocked variant was listed in a BIN auction for $150. I think this is a very good price for this book graded in 9.8. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Punk-Mambo-1-Flocked-1-100-...

Re: Bloodshot II - Movie Announcement

Hopefully it will be better than the first one. I thought the first movie was a bit "meh". A 90 minute distraction that was the last movie I saw in theaters before everything shut down here just a couple days later.

More Valiant on the big screen and more exposure can only be a good thing.

Re: 29 years of collecting Valiant...

Well written and I agree with what you said Greg.

I would add we need more positivism on the Boards. Let's not let the weight of 2020 get us down. There are plenty of great Valiant stories starting from when Turok was first published in the golden age through today.
