The Unworthy(?) Comic Book

Hi, all.

Well, folks, it has been a long week.  First, the election and the results, then Veterans' Day and a three-day weekend for some of us.

I was chatting with my mother this weekend about the value and worth of my comic book collection.…

Probably the most unique comic of the week is the return of the Vampire Hunter D character to "western comics". Doug got a chance to meet the artist and see some sample pages of this…

Back to Busy-ness!

Hi, all!

 

Well, folks, October has been a busy month, but November is finally here.  My 2012 to 2016 collection, including Marvel's latest Secret Wars and DC's New 52 as well as the renewal of the Valiant Universe, is almost finished.  I need a few issues to complete the runs on which I am working, so I will probably be hitting the back-issue boxes at the downtown location this week or next.  Also, a lot is happening in the…

A Day Late and a Few Dollars Short, But ...

Hi, all.

Well, folks, I've just about got my collection complete.  Thanks to Matthew Schnell in Ohio, I have five of the issues on my needs list arriving very soon:  All-New Captain America #4 & #5, Superior Iron Man #2, Hail hydra #4, and JLA (Vol.4) #9.  This will help me complete those runs, but I still need Justice League of America (Vol. 3) #3 & #7, Uncanny X-Men (Vol. 4) #4 & #7, and a few other issues before I can say I am done.  Then, perhaps I will begin…

Time to Buy ... and Sell!

Hi, all.

Well, folks, I have completed my collection inventory for all of my comics from 2012 to the present.  I have nearly 1200 issues worth over $4500.  Although I am still missing a few issues, I am ready to start selling them.  I posted a list of over 1000 issues on Facebook but have only gotten a few interested nibbles.  Most of the online buyers seem to be looking for older issues than the ones I have…

Getting It All Together

Hi, all.

Well, folks, after more than four years of being back in the comic book collecting game (after a hiatus of over twenty years) and weeks of work, I have finally gotten my collection into a manageable state.  Once I get everything inventoried and priced, I will be ready to start some serious selling and trading.

I just want to take a moment to thank Pete Kilmer, Mike Costello, and all the folks at the Castleton store for their help these past few years. …
