Re: How is this CGC 8.5?

CGC IHMO grades the different era's based on a different set of standards and allows more defects for grades on the older eras. If that was a copper age or modern age book it would be something crazy like a 7.0.

Re: Vehicle & Playset Sale!!! Vintage MOTU, TMNT, Hot Wheels

I have had plenty of stores like what you are describing. Back in 2012, I had a scammer buy a complete GI Joe 1985 Mauler Tank, steal all the small parts and ebay forced me to take the return and there wasn't anything I could do about it. Now I mostly sell any vehicle/playset as parts or sell the b...

Re: Bloodshot Trailer

It looks like Dinesh was trying his best to “do things right” with this movie Valiant introduction.

Re: Undervalued Gems

Does anybody know why there’s been a hike in the asking and selling prices for Lucio Parrillo regular and variant covers this summer? Some of his Red/Queen Sonjas from 7-10 years ago have suddenly become quite overpriced, in my opinion. Maybe the new Marvel Conan titles steered new people toward hi...

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

Anyone look at Avengers v1 #8 recently? It's selling like crazy in any grade. 7.5's used to be a $300 book, but now VF slabs are seeing actual sales on eBay of $1100 - $1500. I've got a raw copy that I've bounced back and forth over the years with being a 7.0 or 7.5. I'm tempted to have it pressed ...

I saw this, not sure if it's going to get much use. I'm also concerned will this cause the actual turnaround times to be even slower.

The Ultimate lines got me back into comics in about 2001. I loved most of the runs but sold everything when it was hot except for the X-men run.

You can use joeypost from the CGC boards, https://cfpcomics.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

He is a bit cheaper then the one at CGC and he personally drives to CGC once or twice a month and delivers books directly to them.

Re: Which lines of comics might be optioned for movies?

I think in the coming years most popular Vertigo titles will eventually get made into movies/tv shows, ie Sandman, Fables, etc.

A lot of the issues past 120 had small print runs, and then after say 235 seemed to have an even smaller print run. A lot of these books can be found in dollar bins.
