1. USE THE GRADING CONTEST ARCHIVES!! I can't stress this enough, especially for people that are new to the pro-graded comic scene. Looking over past contests can give you invaluable knowledge. The more familiar you are with the way the respective Grading Companies grade books, the more successful you will be in the contest. Here is a link to our Grading Contest Archives: THE STL COMICS GRADING CONTEST ARCHIVES


2. Remember to grade the book as CGC or PGX would grade the book not necessarily what you would personally grade the book.


3. Use the Graders Notes as a tool, but don't take them too literally. Sometimes the notes can confuse as much as inform.


4. Make the scan smaller to put the book in a better perspective if necessary. Sometimes looking at a large scan can magnify defects a little too much and affect your grading judgement.

Not to worry, though. I managed to get them all packed up and ready for shipping.

==================

There is a problem with the shipping, however. It's double what I charged. But, only because of one book that won't fit in the envelope. That one book doubles it. Which one can I give you a partial refund for? Or will you pay extra for shipping?

Sorry.

Sincerely,

Your concerns seem to me indicative of the fear and paranoia that rule many peoples lives in this brave new world. These people seem to think that the worst possible thing that could possibly happen will probably happen so why take any chances. And they lord it over the rest of us by acting holier than thou.

Taking it a step further, I believe this thing about not posting pix of your kids is symptomatic of an over-protective parent's willingness to shield their children from this cruel and nasty world. And when the kids grow up, who's going to protect them, then? Will they have the street-smarts to be able to protect themselves?

I'm not trying to pick a fight. Sht happens. Everyone takes all kinds of chances every day. It all comes down to how risk averse you are. In the end, you should do whatever you feel is best and deal with whatever life throws at you. In this particular instance, I feel safe posting a picture of my son here due to the fact that no one here knows my name or address, much less his. Besides, don't pedophiles usually hang out in Pokemon chat rooms and such?

(I also allow my 12 year old son to ride his bike where ever he wants without a helmet and watch adult swim with me. We laugh our azzes off. Together.)

OK. I guess that's it. Now, can we develop this thread into a compendium of all comics that fit each catagory? Has it been done already?

Silver Foil
Colored Foil - Incredible Hulk #300
Prism Foil
Holo-Grafix Foil - Uncanny X-Men
Embossed - Fantastic Four (white, red)
Affixed Hologram Card - Uncanny X-Men
Die-cut comic book - Ferret (sp?) #1
Plastic jewel affixed to cover - Eclipso #1
Colorforms "creat your own cover" - a Superman issue (can't remember # with Lobo)
Pop-up diorama cover - Mighty Magnor issue
Glow-In-the-Dark - The Maxx, Ghost Rider
Polybagged - Uncanny X-Men
Multiple covers - Spider-Man, X-Men, Image

Regarding colorforms, what about covers with an art style different than standard comic book fare?

Sienkiewicz's "Kiddie Crayon" child abuse cover for Moon Knight.
Superman had one, also, minus the child abuse theme.
Were those gimmicks?

Were there "virgin" (absent logo) books back then?

What was the first "Virgin Variant"?

(I know, I should post this over on the StL Variant Mafia board.)

San Diego Summer 2007
And one last thing... What's the order of comic conventions now in terms of best convention for dealers?

Chicago, San Diego, New York, Heroes Con, WonderCon, etc.

MrBedrock
San Diego, New York, Chicago, Heroes Con, WonderCon, etc.
There are a bunch in the next level - Mega-Con, Heroes, Detroit, Philly & LA Wizard.
I can tell you that the worst show for me is the one closest to home - the Wizard Dallas show is absolutely abysmal for selling collectible comics. The t-shirt guys probably do great, and I know they sell alot of beer at the concession stands.

we brought tons of 3 dollar books (thinking all the family with kiddies would go crazy with cheap books) which sold about 9,000, and a very weak selection of pee stained golden age books, and left are other Marvel and DC silver and bronze at home due to space limitations. I concur with the others that to have a great show you need a healthly selection of *spoon*, ( your outer wall of protection from the riff raff) thick quality of mid priced goodies, and hopefully a stocked amount of great 100 and up goldend age.

To address the Chicago Whiz concept, it is quite correct - i am never setting up at a Wizard show ever again. A ba-zillion reasons, a few being:

cuz my booth is configured by me at the warehouse and then we duplicate it setting up at the big shows i do

(Jamie does my credit cards with his satelite up-link

some local toy guy with cages to display his wares with an opening in the back we "shared"

38 years in a row have i been to that Mecca of Culural Media Conglomerates it is moving towards as the popular culture of this country continues its ever forward evolutions

as one has to be able to rebound up & down showing customers stuff as well as running tackles with shop lifters on occasion

waaaaaay diff than say the expert staff at San Diego who help out dealers in & out when they have a pile of stuff - i like the way they do business

why is it (rhetorical query actually) the West Coast Freeman guys & gals at San Fran or San Diego are so helpful, they come out to you to help load your van even, they ask you if you need help

i hate having to think I have watch the dealers like that around me more than the customers in front of me

Guards not working - janitors stealing - over night burglaries

Hauling boxes of valuable comic books to a show which had demonstrated a lack of control over night time security is something i am unconvinced of to risk this year based off previous Wiz-Burns as i call them.

San Diego is so much more secure, any other larger show like Wiz-Chicago and/or NYComicon, the new upstarts who have yet to work out a deal with the Freeman guys who stalk us during set up
NYC Freeman on the other hand prey upon us indiscrimantly only because they still can

and i sold a lot of 20 to 50 dollar books in all grades

- is the internet for sales is the wave of the future in this business river?

RB on VARIANTS:
guess if i participated in those 1/2 nd zero special isssue show exclusives they would treat those who do not differently
- then again, i once got a phone call many many years ago late 1980s from Gareb S with him asking me about my displeasure with some of the tactics in their then "new" monthly price "guide" which jacked stuff up to many dollars even before it got published - many times back in the day -
being in this business now for over 40 years i take umbrage with manipulation of the comic reader customer base

back when i was younger, pre-warehouse flood days, i set up at some 25-30 shows a year up & down the west coast mainly while at the same time trying to keep on top of four comic book stores spread out 100 miles
- 23 full time employees plus part timers, open seven days a week.


The comics ware house of this comic book company i founded also serviced a couple hundred other comic book stores for recent "hot" back issues -

health insurance and plan issues? had them too

meetings with CPAs and accountants, quarterly returns, Fed rules to wrry about, bankers, cash flow projections, demographic studies for customer flows, never ending kaleidoscope

============================================================

But i see comic sales at shows peaking these days, a trend which began some time ago - eBay has taken its toll, many main customers then have no bucks for the shows, or get their fix so they do not need to come to shows any more - they also be busy with "life" but they still be junkies

after the push to, there, back, down to earth, the gathering of the tribes is once again completed for the year

any one else notice that say G-4 did two hours a night "Big Ballyhoo" and on Thursday at least there was exactly 1.5 minutes about actual comic books, and then it was of a Brit with a $120,000 Captain America #1 for sale - and that was it

those who purchased a piece of the Final Collecting Legacy (FCL) of comics fandom history - get a copy of Alter Ego #68 from TwoMorrows to learn more, read all of this thread as an adjunct to what appears in AE 68 and you will have a decent overview of one all comics fandom persons should have an insight into collective history.

lamented i was driving across country during Overstreet Advisor Meeting and Heritage Auction scenario there in Baltimore - i enjoy interjecting my input into comics philosophy on many levels in case few noticed.

Only the Angouleme show in France or Lucca in Italy rival its all-inclusive sweep of inter-related popular culture, both festivals i have also been to many times.

San Diego is such a target rich environment

Go read ON THE ROAD section in Dark Horse's Comics Annecdotal Encyclopedia BETWEEN THE PANELS for a few details on the most famous known comic book vehicle accident of all time - so they say. Amazing thing is no one died.

I do not do auctions on eBay - strictly Buy It Now Or Best Offer

And i rarely go below 20% off offer wise on any of the material i list in my eBay store

It takes a lot of work to get the product to market - i am happy to send on larger scans for potential sales to happen - maybe one order per fifty gets something sent back - and i have a no questions asked return policy - i have found it is best to take a book back if the customer does not like it

And, of course, whenit comes back, it better be the same book i sent out, as i have had persons try to return a slightly lesser copy, hoping to up-grade off the cheap as it were

Response: I see a lot more sellers with really nice books... going with a Buy It Now Or Best Offer

You have to be intensly aware of everything you say. They'll twist anything if you give them an open shot.

FPRIVATE "TYPE=PICT;ALT=TimesSelect" Getting Coffee Is Hard to Do
By STANLEY FISH
The coffee shop experience is just one instance of the growing practice of shifting the burden of labor to the consumer.



It's too bad that this hobby atracts so many thiefs and rip-offs as to make convention going a blood sport.

The July 26-29 Comic-Con, that drew 125,000 people to the San Diego convention center, is still a place where perennial outsiders – nerdy boys, Goth girls, and all the rest – can become entertainment insiders, at least for a weekend.

science fiction and fantasy are no longer confined to cult status. The popularity of those genres in a variety of mediums means that Comic-Con isn't just about comic books anymore.

On the other hand, many find it hard to resist what has become a kind of Hollywood South. The event is so hip

Many of the fans of vintage comic books are, not surprisingly, on the older side. Younger attendees tend to prefer the flashier parts of the convention floor where they can find a variety of freebies.

But there are still plenty of comic books geared toward the young. The often female-friendly Japanese comics known as "manga" (in book form) and "anime" (animation) have been the rage for at least a decade. And there are now dozens of comics aimed at blacks, gays, and Christians.

Despite the growing diversity of comic audiences, there's always a bit of a stigma attached to attending such a convention. But Colleen McAllister, a pretty 20-something publicist from New York, says, "It doesn't matter whether you know the difference between DC and Marvel comic books."

Even so, her friends teased her about attending, and her mother seemed mystified. But she enjoyed the "sensory overload" and chance to meet "cool people." She's already planning to fly over next year. "It's worth it," she says.

Thanks to Esquire, here's the group pic taken by tb:

My favorite is Al Rios booth. At both Major cons that I have been to this year I have seen a bunch of attractive 20 year old girls dressed in fairy tale clothing (promoting grimm fairy tales) which happen to show alot of skin

Comic books in fluorescent display cases. These seem to grab my attention more than wall books.
If you want booth babes, I hear E3 is the place the to go.

=

I Had a great time at the SD Con this year as usual. Saw and spoke with a few forum members: Esquire Comics, Silver, Greggy, SACentaur, filter81 and others (please excuse me if you're not mentioned here, I don't mean to leave anyone out).

Anyway, I went on a mission for three books in particular and.......... didn't find a one. .............Oh well, maybe next year.

"Plan B" was to look for early Fox, Fiction House, Quality, Centaur/ pre-Centaur (Thank you, Jon Berk) and Catman Comics.

I should mention that FUEL and I scanned the entire hall several times for a copy of Superworld 3 - oddly enough we found multiple copies of 1 and 2, but not a single 3. Tough book!

I asked about the Catman #5 because I've virtually never seen a Catman for sale at the NYC cons (and believe me, I looked). I guess they're all on the West Coast!

Pittsburgh Comicon Promoter Michael George
to be Charged with Wife's Murder

http://www.myfoxdetroit.com/myfox/pages/News/Detail?contentId=3992170&version=1&locale=EN-US&layoutCode=VSTY&pageId=3.2.1

He shot his wife and stole is own comics?

Sometimes people steal things after the murder to make it look like robbery was the motive and not the murder itself.

Yup. And it's entirely possible that the "stolen" comics are what linked him to the murder. Perhaps they found someone who can link him to the comics after when they were allegedly stolen or maybe he thought after 17 years it was "safe" to try to sell some of them.

Speculating on this is no good - the details will come out soon enough
I remember when his wife was shot - it was in CBG

Seriously, where did you cut and paste that text from? I'd like to see the original article.

I didn't cut and paste from anywhere... it's my writing. These are the facts playing out on local news channels in Detroit. The websites from these news stations will slowly catch up with their tv coverage. Detroit Mike is ahead of the pack on this one.

Yea, but he's on "the wrong side of right". Someone can be 100% right about something and still be wrong. If I hit a person in a
crosswalk with my car then I am wrong and they are right, but they are on "the wrong side of right".-OldGuy

This is profound. That means that it makes no actual sense except that it makes us pause for a second. If this is from a lawyer I am going for another choice if I need lawyering up. Please don't be a teacher either. or a cop.
If you are 100 percent right you have to be 0 percent wrong.
There's no percents left!
At least in the real world.

adamstrange cgc
Last year tth2 and I received a special midnight showing of comics at RareHighGrade's place. It was a blast \(thumbs u but it was much too short due to the late hour and incomplete because RHG didn't bring out a certain book that we really, really, really wanted to see \(tsk\) . So this year he invited a small group of handsome and intelligent collectors for dinner and a show-n-tell at a time that would allow for a more relaxed visit. They weren't able to come so the bar was lowered to allow Bedrock, Esquire, Nearmint, Sacentaur, tb, and I to qualify.

Through a carefully coordinated transportation plan everyone converged at 7pm in the jungle garden of Casa RHG to settle in and unwind with their first drink. Everyone, that is, except for me who somehow couldn't remember the rendezvous time or booth doh\! and had to high tail it separately to the event. Arriving at the fashionably correct time of 8pm I was able to get the party started and we dug into the pizza and home-made dessert goodies (uber thanks to Mrs. RHG \(worship\) ).

After dinner we adjourned to the formal dining room for the viewing of the books. Sacentaur bought a couple of those gorgeous glossinated copies (that Chicago Timely was scorching! ) and Bedrock brought a sample of DC Comics to prove that he has the courage, taste, and thoughtfulness that goes well beyond that of a Timely collector (I'm so proud of him!). Bedrock's piece-de-resistance was his new favorite book (it involves a certain jungle character) and it was amazing to see in person. It's not the greatest art or the greatest coloring but when you look at the book you are transported.
Even through the CGC holder it glowed. Esquire brought some copies of correspondence between Siegal and Shuster and DC that had been written between 1937 and 1940. It was amazing work from the dawn of the super-hero era and provided insight into the concerns and pressures of a couple young kids who'd just made it to the major leagues.

One collector brought some lame 50s cr@p but we pressed through them quickly enough that they didn't spoil the evening. A couple collectors didn't bring anything to show but I promised tb and nearmint that I'd keep this secret so I'm not going to name names. They know who they are and I'm sure it won't happen again. rantrant

After a short break our gracious host presented an array of treasures that his minions had pulled from the vault just for this occasion. Since RHG is sometimes reticent to talk about his collection I'm not going to name specific books. It was an overwhelming experience, spiritually uplifting as we had a new adventure looking at many churches and having more fun and double the action any comic geek had a right to expect. I'm sure if you did a bit of detective work looking through old posts in this forum you would be able to figure out some of the books that we saw, except for the jumbo-sized finale that blew everyone away.

I will say to tth2 that the answer to "the question" is that it is at least nm+ with snow white pages.

Finally, filled with good food, camaraderie, and aesthetic wonderment, we returned to our cars and headed back to our lodging, reflecting quietly on the wonders we had seen and the gracious hospitality of our host.

Thanks, Peter!

tb was the proverbial kid in the candy store - as beautiful comic after comic passed through his hands, his glowing eyes doubled the illumination in the room. The blizzard of incredible books almost overwhelms one's senses. This was my second time through the Elysian Fields, and it was pure heaven.

Ever had one of those nights where a bunch of acquaintances became friends? That's exactly what that night felt like to me, and it was absolutely the highlight of my convention.

Thanks again, Peter, for a wonderful evening. You and your family are very gracious hosts, and it was a pleasure to view your museum-quality collection.
================================
Like all veterans, these two look back fondly on the world that made them. It’s nostalgia, but if anything, it’s nostalgia for a crueler world, not a gentler one. All these years later, their seeming nihilism seems more like integrity: a clear-eyed commitment to an old-fashioned ideal, despite its contradictions.

Bun B and Pimp C are two Texas gangsta rappers who perform together as UGK.
================================================================
He prepared the bass and bluefish with recipes from his days cooking for crewmates on long dragger trips. He cut the bass into chunks and set them in a dish of white vinegar before dredging them in Aunt Jemima pancake mix and frying them in oil. The sweet, sharp-flavored nuggets barely had a chance to cool before they were wolfed down.
The bluefish fillets received the most attention. Mr. Goldberg placed them in foil with several handfuls of thinly sliced onions and roughly chopped tomato. He topped this with three or four sizable pats of cream cheese, two spoonfuls of mayonnaise and a few lumps of butter before sealing the foil pouch and placing it on the grill alongside the clams and corn.
Wouldn’t all the toppings overwhelm the flavor of the fish? Perhaps, Mr. Goldberg said, “but I don’t like bluefish.” In fact, though hardly Le Bernardin (or the American Heart Association, for that matter), the mayo and cream cheese melted into a rich sludge that nicely offset the oiliness of the fish.
In a little more than 10 hours, the bluefish had gone from wild animal to art object to food for friends and family.

I've already sent him an email that if his travels should take him to Hong Kong, I'd be very hurt if he didn't look me up.

=========================

Just wondering as my GF will spend some time at the con,
but not the entire weekend.
She might need a partner in crime to make a dent in Chicago while I'm checking out books.

I don't trust any of you comic geeks.
Trust no one!

I have a couple of girlfriends that I am looking to get rid of.

=========================================

I just don't know why I bought so much modern krap. I was only a teenage at the time but still........
It was like pre-2000 Nasdaq stocks, we all bought into the hype of the hot book.
Oh how I wish I had instead spent that money on true high grade 9.4+ key issue 1968-1975 comics like Green Lantern 76, Iron Man 1, Batman 232, 234, 237, Spiderman 50, 90, 100, 121, 122, 129, X-men GS 1, 94, 100, Hulk 181, House Of Secrets 92, etc, etc, etc
These were all available in 1980-1985 for $2 to $50 in NM. If I had bought those instead of the modern krap, the comics would be worth over a million now.
Ah, hindsight...............


i was - no lie - stoned when i agreed to buy them. from a dude who was also stoned.
so, i guess that makes us about even

Thankfully, I never went for hype on new books and new collectibles. I immediately traded the first couple of issues of Gen 13 for some ECs and Fawcetts. I dumped my McGwire rookie card right after he broke the record, also trading it to my LCS for vintage comics of equal value (at the time).

I bought about 50 copies of Shazam #1 20 cents each. Thought it would be the next big thing after not being published for so long. Could not sell them because everyone else had the same idea

I just received some heart breaking news regarding some books last night
and I'm getting tired of all the disappointments in either some of the books
I receive, postal damage or the people involved. After paying off some
members I owe I'm taking a long break or just packing it in for good.
I hope and pray this passes and just wish one day would go by without me
thinking about this collection I cherished that I sold this spring during
a major money crisis.
I just feel like a fool who has lost their best friend. \:\(
At least my collection went to a nice guy. \(shrug\)
fay

I'm sorry that you are feeling down Fay! I hope you don't leave the hobby for good. I have started over for the 3rd time. Maybe when finances are better, you can start back collecting again

Worst buy? It always seems like I always buy through emotion and sell out of need, so I always end up on the short end.

The biggest waste of money I have is probably the full run of Tomb Raider's, which includes ALL of the 300 cover variants. The only redeeming factor is some of the covers are easy on the eyes.

==========

Witnessing this flameout probably would have been worth slogging thru the merits of minor Bronze books. oh well.


Last time I saw something like that was on these boards several years ago when Hammer (Comic-Keys) was here.


I miss insults containing the words "Prada" and "loafers"
Or this classic "...Pippy Longstocking look-a-like, culotte wearing, limp wristed, ham-slamming fay-gelas..."


Yeah, Ol' Hammy and Supa didn't get along very well, did they.
Still, the worst thrashing ever was the JC (then as CI) / Jens exchange.
the classic marching Hitler youth remark...

After the total hatchet job he did on you in that "how much will they be worth in 30 years?" thread? He not only insulted your opinion, he completely shat all over your intelligence, mocked you, etc. Very personal stuff.
You MUST be a glutton for punishment or suffering from Stockholm Syndrome.

A handy rule for criticism: When in doubt, insult the audience: "I can't see this appealing to many, especially as poetry is so little read here, but its publication remains an important contribution."

The comments archive is admittedly very long. Alternately, if you don't feel up to sifting through buckets of watery vomit to pick out the meaty chunks, you can check out Dafnap's LJ post here where she archived some real gems as they came in. I believe that post missed some of the later ones.


The strip is inevitably a mediocre shadow of the detailed, reverent descriptions Wimbledon has provided. Seth gently satirizes the ability of comicologists (and all experts) to devote undue attention and praise to a work more because of its obscurity than any inherent quality.

================================================







I understand that you are not satisfied with the books but unfortunately i will not be providing you with a refund unless it is deemed required through ebay or paypal. my reasoning behind this is that the books were not misrepresented in any way as i never stated in the ad that i am a strict overstreet grader, nor did i include any number value grading on the books and i also included high resolution pictures that could be super sized for easier viewing. in addition i just looked at the overstreet and according to your grading opinion you still payed less then or on point with the guide. i disagree with your grading and your classification of the books as it is my opinion to do so. the issue here is that the books were not misrepresented in any way and you were given ample tools to see for yourself the condition of the books which again i feel you are mistaken on. do not ship the books back yet as i will not accept the shipping until this is resolved through paypal or ebay. the options that you have are as follows. i will either work through ebay and paypal on this matter and i assure you that as a seller i will win in regards to my ad and representation. the other option is to avoid this lengthy process as i will be willing to issue a partial refund that we can mutually agree to. again i strongly disagree with your grading and we are basically playing a game of opinion as neither of us are professional graders. i do not mean to sound rude or unsympathetic but their is a significant inconvenience that you are putting on me and there is no negligence on my part. if you are looking for guaranteed grading you should be bidding on graded books from companies like CGC or PGX. i had many other sellers who wanted these books and now i am going to be inconvenienced because you think the books are graded differently. you can contact me with your response and hopefully we can resolve this.

So basically, he wouldn't allow a return because it was an inconvenience to him.

I wrote back to ask what kind of partial refund he was willing to offer. He said he'd give me $75, and if I didn't agree to it, I could file a Paypal dispute. Which I did.

I explained in my claim with Paypal that the seller clearly used Overstreet grading terminology, and that the actual books were overgraded, and therefore misrepresented. I tried to explain that grading is NOT subjective, and that the grading guidelines make it very easy to determine the accurate grade of a book. I directed them to the three "Spare a Grade" threads where forumites had come to fairly unanimous agreement on the grades of these books.

The seller responded by saying that (1) grading is highly subjective, (2) that he didn't use Overstreet grading "numbers", (3) that his feedback is testament to his accurate grading, (4) that I was just looking for an Ebay 'steal', (5) that I still got a good deal even at the grades I claimed the books were in, and for good measure, (6) that providing a refund would really inconvenience him.


The best should not be the enemy of the good.

It's a bit below what I normally collect, but I figured I could pick it up on the cheap and have a nice little MH run (of an admittedly obscure title).

Now, I know that GA collectors pride themselves on not caring about gauche things like differences in grades above VF (because we should all be so lucky to own any comic book from the 1940s in any grade), but considering that the #1 and #3 were 9.6s and I picked them up for less than 3X Guide, doesn't 2.2X seem like a rather aggressive asking price for a 9.2 copy?

WTF?? \:o \:o
To my shock and surprise, I'm actually the high bidder on four books (out of 23) going into the live auction. I'm guessing I may win one. Which would also be the first win at a Signature Auction since late last year because all of my bids in 2007 have been blown out of the water.
I'm either a tightass with my bids or the HG Gold market is really nutty, with premium prices paid for 2nd and 3rd tier stuff that I thought few people even bothered to collect.
Or both. meh

On a side note, did anyone else notice that after San Diego, Metro bumped the prices for most of their premium GA stuff even more? Books that have been sitting in their inventory for five years have another 5% added to their asking price? I guess everything sells eventually, and their business model certainly works, but I think I'm going to sit on the sidelines and let other folks pay these nosebleed prices. When those same folks who pay top dollar absolutely need to sell, I'll be there on ebay to lowball their auctions and hopefully pick stuff up on the cheap.


It's too bad they don't have video. The two floor bidders on the GLs should be coming to blows pretty soon.

One of the first things you learn when you join the fraternal order of comic dealers is the old adage, "If it doesn't sell for $100, it will just as easily not sell for $1000"!
Words to live by really.

its called good old fashioned "English understatement"

Anyone proud enough to admit they won the Detective # 1 ?

I am sure the winner will come forward shortly....


He's probably one of those reserved, English-like dudes.


oh, he is a shy one alright



and the "shy" brit comes to bask in the light...

Pre-code horror has been soft for a while now. I'm trying to buy what I can now because I know when it bounces back, I won't be able to hang.

Although the hammer price was only $170, I bet you by the time I get the actual book, it'll be a lot closer to $300. Not only the usual Heritage juice, but they also always seem to look for the most expensive way to ship the book to you even if you ask for regular air mail. Not only that, they also insist on adding the cost of this excessive shipping onto their Customs value declaration form which only increases the duties paid. With Heritage, it'a always punishment pricing as they seem to go out of their way to ensure you pay the absolute maximum for the book you are buying.

This auction reinforced that GA Ducks are THE hottest segment right now and the sale of a FC 386 (US 1) for a new record so soon after the previous record sale in November seems to indicate it`s not just 2 crazy Scandinavians driving each other up!

I put in some decent bids on a few some "short bus" Vancouver books, but was outbid on all of them.

That Warren Hall had one heck of collection and he started out reading and collectioning in the golden age to boot. Too bad his golden age collection was lost when he had to move as a kid! The thing I like about this Heritage auction was that almost all the consignors except for one had the guts to put their books on the auction block with absolutely no reserve! Than you can really get a good gauge of what a book is worth and how strong the market is

Now put down that pipe.


And put the crack up.



San Diego Summer 2007

And one last thing... What's the order of comic conventions now in terms of best convention for dealers?


Chicago, San Diego, New York, Heroes Con, WonderCon, etc.


MrBedrock

San Diego, New York, Chicago, Heroes Con, WonderCon, etc.

There are a bunch in the next level - Mega-Con, Heroes, Detroit, Philly & LA Wizard.

I can tell you that the worst show for me is the one closest to home - the Wizard Dallas show is absolutely abysmal for selling collectible comics. The t-shirt guys probably do great, and I know they sell alot of beer at the concession stands.


we brought tons of 3 dollar books (thinking all the family with kiddies would go crazy with cheap books) which sold about 9,000, and a very weak selection of pee stained golden age books, and left are other Marvel and DC silver and bronze at home due to space limitations. I concur with the others that to have a great show you need a healthly selection of *spoon*, ( your outer wall of protection from the riff raff) thick quality of mid priced goodies, and hopefully a stocked amount of great 100 and up goldend age.


Robert Beerbohm

http://boards.collectors-society.com/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=1821505&page=1&g..1UNREAD

To address the Chicago Whiz concept, it is quite correct - i am never setting up at a Wizard show ever again. A ba-zillion reasons, a few being:


cuz my booth is configured by me at the warehouse and then we duplicate it setting up at the big shows i do


(Jamie does my credit cards with his satelite up-link


some local toy guy with cages to display his wares with an opening in the back we "shared"


38 years in a row have i been to that Mecca of Culural Media Conglomerates it is moving towards as the popular culture of this country continues its ever forward evolutions


as one has to be able to rebound up & down showing customers stuff as well as running tackles with shop lifters on occasion


waaaaaay diff than say the expert staff at San Diego who help out dealers in & out when they have a pile of stuff - i like the way they do business


why is it (rhetorical query actually) the West Coast Freeman guys & gals at San Fran or San Diego are so helpful, they come out to you to help load your van even, they ask you if you need help


i hate having to think I have watch the dealers like that around me more than the customers in front of me


Guards not working - janitors stealing - over night burglaries


Hauling boxes of valuable comic books to a show which had demonstrated a lack of control over night time security is something i am unconvinced of to risk this year based off previous Wiz-Burns as i call them.


San Diego is so much more secure, any other larger show like Wiz-Chicago and/or NYComicon, the new upstarts who have yet to work out a deal with the Freeman guys who stalk us during set up

NYC Freeman on the other hand prey upon us indiscrimantly only because they still can


and i sold a lot of 20 to 50 dollar books in all grades


- is the internet for sales is the wave of the future in this business river?


RB on VARIANTS:

guess if i participated in those 1/2 nd zero special isssue show exclusives they would treat those who do not differently

- then again, i once got a phone call many many years ago late 1980s from Gareb S with him asking me about my displeasure with some of the tactics in their then "new" monthly price "guide" which jacked stuff up to many dollars even before it got published - many times back in the day -

being in this business now for over 40 years i take umbrage with manipulation of the comic reader customer base


back when i was younger, pre-warehouse flood days, i set up at some 25-30 shows a year up & down the west coast mainly while at the same time trying to keep on top of four comic book stores spread out 100 miles

- 23 full time employees plus part timers, open seven days a week.


The comics ware house of this comic book company i founded also serviced a couple hundred other comic book stores for recent "hot" back issues -


health insurance and plan issues? had them too


meetings with CPAs and accountants, quarterly returns, Fed rules to wrry about, bankers, cash flow projections, demographic studies for customer flows, never ending kaleidoscope


============================================================


But i see comic sales at shows peaking these days, a trend which began some time ago - eBay has taken its toll, many main customers then have no bucks for the shows, or get their fix so they do not need to come to shows any more - they also be busy with "life" but they still be junkies


after the push to, there, back, down to earth, the gathering of the tribes is once again completed for the year


any one else notice that say G-4 did two hours a night "Big Ballyhoo" and on Thursday at least there was exactly 1.5 minutes about actual comic books, and then it was of a Brit with a $120,000 Captain America 1 for sale - and that was it


those who purchased a piece of the Final Collecting Legacy (FCL) of comics fandom history - get a copy of Alter Ego 68 from TwoMorrows to learn more, read all of this thread as an adjunct to what appears in AE 68 and you will have a decent overview of one all comics fandom persons should have an insight into collective history.


lamented i was driving across country during Overstreet Advisor Meeting and Heritage Auction scenario there in Baltimore - i enjoy interjecting my input into comics philosophy on many levels in case few noticed.


Only the Angouleme show in France or Lucca in Italy rival its all-inclusive sweep of inter-related popular culture, both festivals i have also been to many times.


San Diego is such a target rich environment


Go read ON THE ROAD section in Dark Horse's Comics Annecdotal Encyclopedia BETWEEN THE PANELS for a few details on the most famous known comic book vehicle accident of all time - so they say. Amazing thing is no one died.


" . . . what i told that reporter who altered my observation. I guess they edited my slang out in his note taking. "


You have to be intensly aware of everything you say.  They'll twist anything if you give them an open shot.


Will getting out of the comics corral/pen/side panel/ghetto mean more foot traffic next to the DC or Marvel diorama


"San Diego Comicon to me is a Gathering of the Tribes"


First used by Perry Ferrill, Los Angeles, late 90's? for his desert bash, the first Burning Man


replies to RB:

 It's too bad that this hobby atracts so many thiefs and rip-offs as to make convention going a blood sport.


The July 26-29 Comic-Con, that drew 125,000 people to the San Diego convention center, is still a place where perennial outsiders – nerdy boys, Goth girls, and all the rest – can become entertainment insiders, at least for a weekend.


science fiction and fantasy are no longer confined to cult status. The popularity of those genres in a variety of mediums means that Comic-Con isn't just about comic books anymore.


On the other hand, many find it hard to resist what has become a kind of Hollywood South. The event is so hip


Many of the fans of vintage comic books are, not surprisingly, on the older side. Younger attendees tend to prefer the flashier parts of the convention floor where they can find a variety of freebies.


But there are still plenty of comic books geared toward the young. The often female-friendly Japanese comics known as "manga" (in book form) and "anime" (animation) have been the rage for at least a decade. And there are now dozens of comics aimed at blacks, gays, and Christians.


Despite the growing diversity of comic audiences, there's always a bit of a stigma attached to attending such a convention. But Colleen McAllister, a pretty 20-something publicist from New York, says, "It doesn't matter whether you know the difference between DC and Marvel comic books."


Even so, her friends teased her about attending, and her mother seemed mystified. But she enjoyed the "sensory overload" and chance to meet "cool people." She's already planning to fly over next year. "It's worth it," she says.


Thanks to Esquire, here's the group pic taken by tb:

Bedrock, AdamStrange, Nearmint, Esquire, RHG, Sacentaur.

Our tablecloth for the pizza was the Church set of Jumbo 1 - 8. ..:o


Spinal Tap slabs go up to 11.0

adamstrange cgc

Last year tth2 and I received a special midnight showing of comics at RareHighGrade's place. It was a blast ..(thumbs u but it was much too short due to the late hour and incomplete because RHG didn't bring out a certain book that we really, really, really wanted to see ..(tsk..) . So this year he invited a small group of handsome and intelligent collectors for dinner and a show-n-tell at a time that would allow for a more relaxed visit. They weren't able to come so the bar was lowered to allow Bedrock, Esquire, Nearmint, Sacentaur, tb, and I to qualify.


Through a carefully coordinated transportation plan everyone converged at 7pm in the jungle garden of Casa RHG to settle in and unwind with their first drink. Everyone, that is, except for me who somehow couldn't remember the rendezvous time or booth doh..! and had to high tail it separately to the event. Arriving at the fashionably correct time of 8pm I was able to get the party started and we dug into the pizza and home-made dessert goodies (uber thanks to Mrs. RHG ..(worship..) ).


After dinner we adjourned to the formal dining room for the viewing of the books. Sacentaur bought a couple of those gorgeous glossinated copies (that Chicago Timely was scorching! ) and Bedrock brought a sample of DC Comics to prove that he has the courage, taste, and thoughtfulness that goes well beyond that of a Timely collector (I'm so proud of him!). Bedrock's piece-de-resistance was his new favorite book (it involves a certain jungle character) and it was amazing to see in person. It's not the greatest art or the greatest coloring but when you look at the book you are transported.

Even through the CGC holder it glowed. Esquire brought some copies of correspondence between Siegal and Shuster and DC that had been written between 1937 and 1940. It was amazing work from the dawn of the super-hero era and provided insight into the concerns and pressures of a couple young kids who'd just made it to the major leagues.


One collector brought some lame 50s cr@p but we pressed through them quickly enough that they didn't spoil the evening. A couple collectors didn't bring anything to show but I promised tb and nearmint that I'd keep this secret so I'm not going to name names. They know who they are and I'm sure it won't happen again. rantrant


After a short break our gracious host presented an array of treasures that his minions had pulled from the vault just for this occasion. Since RHG is sometimes reticent to talk about his collection I'm not going to name specific books. It was an overwhelming experience, spiritually uplifting as we had a new adventure looking at many churches and having more fun and double the action any comic geek had a right to expect. I'm sure if you did a bit of detective work looking through old posts in this forum you would be able to figure out some of the books that we saw, except for the jumbo-sized finale that blew everyone away.


I will say to tth2 that the answer to "the question" is that it is at least nm+ with snow white pages.


Finally, filled with good food, camaraderie, and aesthetic wonderment, we returned to our cars and headed back to our lodging, reflecting quietly on the wonders we had seen and the gracious hospitality of our host.


Thanks, Peter!

Bree is dead. She also never lived, as we all know, and we were supposedly airheads for believing, just as those who believed in Jason Bourne and Jack Bauer must also be airheads, if much manlier ones.

Fans of “Lonelygirl15,” the Web series that concluded on Aug. 3 with a 12-episode marathon finale, were invested in her far-fetched plights, and her sweetness, and now those who love fiction in all its forms can bury her, as we have buried Sherlock Holmes, Tess, the wife of the guy in “A Farewell to Arms,” and Romeo.

Sorry for being sentimental. You shouldn’t be cynical about the dead too soon after they’re gone. And it’s my belief that you should never be cynical about “LonelyGirl15″: the first full-fledged online-video series moved fast, and worked well, and it was the beginning of something.

But the project will continue: “The Creators” (as they call themselves) are working on an LG spinoff based in London called KateModern.

***

Back in the Screens business for real on Monday, with a few video-related tales from Thailand and China.

***

p.s. This comment comes from the LG15 forum. I thought it was poignant.

by JustAnotherLonleyGirl,

I still don’t know how I feel, other than really, really sad.
Is it pathetic that I was truly attached to this series and these characters?
I mean, I thought for a long time that in the end, Bree would die. She would sacrifice herself for the others. But the problem is that this wasn’t the end.
I don’t understand how I can go on watching this show the way I have. The Season 1 Recap really set the record straight for me: All along, everything we’ve put into this show, every string of hope we’ve held onto…. it’s all been about Bree.
I know there are those of you that say you didn’t like her. That you watched it for the others. But, how could you watch for the others and be on their side, when all along they were driven by one thing: Bree. Saving her.
I’ve been around a long time on these forums. Maybe I don’t have the most posts on the forums, but I post when I have something to say. Maybe I’ve never received any direct acknowledgement from the Creators or the characters. I’m not in anyone’s top 8, nor have I been thanked in a video for my solutions for a puzzle. But I’ve been there for every puzzle, trying to figure it out. I’ve analyzed and ripped apart every video, trying to find hints and themes. I’ve racked my brain out over the meaning of water, immortality, purity, feet, hair, and more for hours on end. I’ve sat in front of the computer and joked with my fellow fans. I’ve fought with people and been thoroughly annoyed by people on here. I’ve complained with people about boredom or disappointment. I’ve even shared my feelings with some of you regarding my family or friends. When I didn’t know if my cousin was dead or alive, this is where I sat, and this is the screen at which I stared.
And now I truly feel like I’ve lost someone important to me. I know it’s just a show. I know it isn’t real, and I can see Jess again in Greek on Monday. But I can’t see Bree again. Never. I feel like Bree never truly opened up to us. Like I’ve spent the past year trying to understand her, and gain her trust so we could feel what she felt, and understand what she thought. I feel like she contained all these secrets in her heart that are now lost forever. I feel like I’ll never truly understand.
I suppose that’s partly how the Creators wanted it. Perhaps because Jonas and Daniel will never be able to truly understand. Perhaps this “key to everything” is meant to suffice for our lack of understanding. But I doubt it will.
She didn’t even know that she had the option of being trait negative. Why couldn’t they bust that door open? Why couldn’t they use the same knife Daniel stabbed the shadow with to threaten Lucy until she gave some answers? WHY COULDN’T BREE LIVE? I just feel like she should have been able to live. I don’t see how there can be a season 2 now.
And of course, I’ll keep watching. I kept watching through everything before. CiW was more compelling than LG15 in the beginning, but I kept watching without her. When Bree and Daniel were just on the run and homeless, everyone was bored and a lot of fans were lost, but I kept watching. When I was strongly opposed to Jonas entering the series, and he did, I kept watching. When I fell in love with the OpAphid ARG, and became truly attached to the people involved with it, and then it was lost over something seemingly meaningless, I kept watching. And that was really the worst blow of them all, thus far. But this? The death of Bree? I mean, the Bree I truly loved was lost months ago. After her dad died, we never saw her, truly, again. But there were short glimpses, here and there. And there was hope. There was faith.
Now it’s gone. She’s really, really done. I’m still in denial. I still think there will be a big twist, and she’ll be alive. But even I know that this is really the end of the lonelygirl15. After an entire year of laughing and talking to these characters as if they were real, of connecting to a community of fans of all ages, of seeing the community change and fans come and go while I remained, all driven towards the rescue of Bree, she is gone. It’s like we failed. It’s like we were going to fail all along but we blindly hoped to win.
I’ve been a faithful lonelycracker for a year now, and I’m suffering from withdrawal symptoms worse than any crackpot I’ve ever known.

Blah.
Love always,
Loretta AKA JALG

The Free Market's Dark Side
As the free-market sports world expands, so, too, does the underworld.
While no tennis scandal has exploded with the force of the continuing case of the former N.B.A. referee Tim Donaghy, there has been smoke in recent years around well-known Russian players.

August 24, 2007: Remasculate

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Remasculate&defid=2535908

The opposite of [emasculate]. To grow one's balls back after they have been
shrunken by an especially effeminate activity.

God, the girlfriend dragged me to go see License to Wed... it was terrible. I
had to remasculate afterwards by watching Die Hard: The Bloody Retribution.

Every single day my Chemistry teacher would say to the class "95% of Americans are scientifically illiterate...don't be one of them". That always drove me crazy. He made fun of those scientifically illiterate Americans by saying how easily they would just take any fact by anyone as a true fact without questioning the validity of it. This drove me crazy because this was exactly what he was reinforcing by just giving us a fact and not having us question it.
