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

I’ve never met any of the Valiant creators/artists/writers. But, hopefully he was in a rush for some reason and doesn’t act that way consistently. That does seem like a missed opportunity to interact with the fans. I could see being very quick with each person since there were so many. But, not to ...

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

Took me a while to remember to take this photo. It's one of my oldest Valiant things I own, box set of 4 books, signed by Barry, Shooter and Walt Simonson. I never met Shooter or Walt, I bought it signed by all three. I have other BWS signatures as I had met him at least 3 times. Obsessed. But this ...

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

Call the shop first. It could be they are not open or it could be that Bad Idea has not sent the info to them yet. Make a relationship with them if you can, because you will need it for every BI book. I am here if that does not work.

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

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? So, the quick answer is no, but let me explain why. At $16, we make VERY LITTLE on this deal. This is not lik...

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

a. the whole industry revolves around the idea of pre-orders b. I never said they don't know the release, I said it's not my place to announce it. it's theirs and they know when to do it. I don't think Dinesh has ever missed the correct timing on announcing things. c. ok, homes :roll: :roll: :roll:

That is something Bad Idea will have to disclose, I am not about to step on their marketing efforts :) Oh, and I don't know yet, things changed with COVID. But I know you are about to see a marketing campaign for the ages. Dont ask me how I know.

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

hey all So, I know I have made pretty strict rules about ordering Eniac before, requiring subscription at our store and all that fun stuff, BUT... life is different now since COVID, so I am going to relax the rules a little to help Dinesh and Co, and try to sell more books. It's a lot of work tracki...

Re: BAD IDEA

Ok... I just ordered issues 1-4 ENIAC from Ed (Collector’s Paradise). Ed is super nice and accommodating for anyone (like me) that doesn’t live near a comic distributor Of #Badidea (and needs mail service). Thank you Ed! Thanks, Tom. I am about to post about it, we are changing things up a bit from...

Re: DC ends relationship with Diamond!

I don't need to hear from them. It was also very underhanded the way DC announced these new distributors without saying who they really were. It took comic press 10 min to figure it out.

Re: Valiant metal signs - new in June 2020

Displate is a big time company, been around for a long time and has a Marvel license, so I don't think it's illegal. Valiant probably has a shared license to distribute movie images and probably got permission from Boss Logic to use the image (or Sony did).

Re: X-O manowar original art for sale Quesada/Palmiotti

honestly, besides an auction house I don't see it selling anywhere else. And I don't know if it will pull 12k there. XO is not a big pull (take it from someone who's got more xo art than most) outside of this website and facebook group. I know to us it's a historic piece but to the rest of the art w...

My holy grail #1 probably, but unfortunately even in best times I could not justify this to the wife, and right now, with 3 months worth of business bills stacked up that I will have to come up with, it's not even a joke I am willing to bring up to her.
