Re: X-O Manowar #1/2 Gold - CGC census jump 8/18/2020

I am hoping one of those is mine (probably not-as I am waiting for the presser to send to CGC). I got a raw copy and submitted it in mid July to a presser who will submit for me. Book has been pressed and is in the mail to CGC. Looking forward to getting it in December (CGC looks really busy with a...

Re: Time to get behind Rai and send a positive message to Valiant!

I've continued ordering it, but the shipping has been a mess of cancellations and so on. I think I might be missing an issue as well, but I won't know until the dust settles, I get my next order and then dig in the bins to see what I've got. I'll read it from start when I know I've got a contiguous...

Re: Bloodshot movie vs novelzation

Thanks to RedBox, I watched it last night for $.67. I thought it was a typical, action movie. It was cool to see a movie produced from a comic we all bought in the 90s. I definitely enjoyed Wigan's character and he was the bright spot of the movie. :popcorn:
