Re: Magnus Coupon Printing Errors

This can really go a lot of ways and it gets very complicated what really might have happened. The key thing to remember is that everything started out as an uncut sheet. If you go back to the old thread and look at my post with the uncut sheet and the poster you can see the difference. It turns out...

Re: VH1 Solar #3 is iconic cover? Really?

I have always been partial to 7 in the 1-11 run, but I understand the love for 3 even without Harada.

Re: Serious question...how accurate is this article?

I think the main premise is reversed. The changes aren't causing the declining sales, the changes were BECAUSE of declining sales. They are an attempt to raise sales. Writers were hired and characters were changed to bring in new readers. It hasn't worked...maybe because it alienated old ones, mayb...

Re: Serious question...how accurate is this article?

Question...about IronMan being a teen girl, which isn't accurate I see, I am under the impression IronMan was always a teen, except in the Marvel movies. Am I right? I very much am guessing. Idk about Tony being a teen; I've always seen him as a 40-something while I've been reading comics. However,...

As I said via PM, if you didn't want the whole set I may be able to pull a subset of the issues you need. But it wont be all of them.

Re: How is this CGC 8.5?

It's always been "buy the book, not the label"!!! :-) It's important to remember that not all defects are created equal. The chip at the top left is a bindery defect and the book looks very clean with sharp edges. At the end of the day there is some scoring system going on at CGC, and when a 70 year...

Re: Valiant: The Complete Digital Comic Book Collection

Reminds me of what happened with No Man's Sky, if any of you are gamers. Rooster Teeth didn't ship the collectors set until about 5-6 months after the game was released, blaming it on the awesome things they were putting in the box.

Re: My experiments with Silver/Bronze slabs

So I did this for years and your results are really good. You have a lot of leeway to make mistakes when you get even a subset of 9.6s and especially 9.8s. Where you really have surprised me here is in what you were willing to pay for the books up front - especially without a big key or two. It real...

Re: Valiant Continuity Bible.. where is it?

LOL! Photobucket took care of the censoring automagically! There is not a single legal website I loathe more than photobucket. What a disaster. I bought Kevin Van Hook's original Bible from him in January 2004 for $175. My memory is fuzzy but I think I sold it soon after in response to the photocopy...

Re: VH1-3/VEI/GK...Ungraded books! Long-running sales thread

I know there are a few new-to-Valiant people lurking, so I am going to make a bulk VH1 commons offer. I think I can get ~100 books in a Medium Flat Rate box. No bags, no boards, no assurance that there wont be some dings in shipping. I am stressing this as a bulk option for someone who wants to read...

Re: want to sell

These look like these are in nice shape, but I’d stay away from submitting them to CGC. There are some spine and corner defects that will prevent these from being 9.8s. Great books though! I agree. You should prescreen if you don't have an experienced person to look at them in hand. That Rai 3 is v...

Thanks, folks! I’m not surprised there are books like this that likely languished for 15+ years before slabbing & discovering they’re rare in high grade, but seemed weird to me. There's another thread on just this topic. I have 100 unread well-cared for copies and not one of them will grade 9.8. I ...
