Re: BAD IDEA Eniac 1-4 Deal from Collector's Paradise (UPDATED)

I sent my cash. Excited to see what Dinesh and the boys are doing, but the nearest shop in their program is about three hours away. I'm not even sure if they are still open or what.

Re: Barry Windsor-Smith signature on X-O Manowar # 1

Does anyone ever remember Frank Miller signing any Valiant comics in the 90s? I haven’t really noticed any of his sigs on Valiant comics through the years until more recently (I’ve seen CGC SS Valiants done within the last few years). Back in the day, did he freely sign (ala Shooter and Layton)?......

Whoop ... found one. It’s in better shape than it looks, weird reflections off the bag. Don Perlin signed it at the same show. I added Shooter later.

Not sure where I stored them ... I think it was Solar 1 and 2 and Bloodshot 1.

Do we order through the store web site or just send PayPal with a note? Either way I’m in. Apologies if this was explained somewhere ...

Any chance you’ll be doing this for other Bad Ideas?

Here’s a couple of the cards (I gave one away). Might have to dig a bit for the books.

Re: The Market on Ultimate Fallout 4

I think I might move a few of these, finally. Probably a good idea to get them graded. I grabbed a few from storage (4 first prints, 1 each of the seconds) and they all look pretty close to perfect.

Re: Barry Windsor-Smith signature on X-O Manowar # 1

I met BWS at a con once and he signed three Valiant books for me ... I also got him to sign three cards from the Upper Deck set. On the books he wrote his scribble, but on the cards he did the same initials he used on covers (BWS). This was at least 20 years ago ... Bob Layton and Don Perlin were at...

Definitely one of the coolest things about living down in your neck of the woods. Usually we can see the launches up here but it was too overcast for that one.

Bad Idea

I'm a bit out of the loop ... what kind of schedule are we looking at for Bad Idea comics? Is Collector's Paradise going to be shipping these out (there are a couple of shops in Florida that were looped in originally but they are a few hours from me and I'm not even sure if they are open)? I'm willi...

Re: Your Quarantine Experience?

I've been working ... we haven't had a C19 in our hospital for a couple of weeks now although it looks like they might be coming back soon. It never got too sketchy here; I think the most positives we had at one time was less than 10. But it was complicated dealing with all the gear and disinfecting...

Re: Are we becoming indifferent towards Valiant?

I've been with Valiant for about 30 years now. Sometimes it's great, sometimes it's meh, sometimes it's not even there but I bleed Valiant.

Also, I am a bit of a dillweed.

Re: SDCC 2020

Argh. Good news is they are giving the option of rolling over the badges to 2021. I'd hit that.

And good to see I am getting a full refund on my hotel. I was pretty sure that would happen, but it did say non-refundable when I paid.

Re: New Ninjak, Harbinger and Punk Mambo coming soon

That Savage preview looks like Dead Drop.

I am, however, excited every time I hear they're bringing Harbinger back up to the front.
