Re: VH1 Harby 1 CGC 9.8, plus others - ebay auction

Love those Green Lantern slabs, I was a big fan of Emerald Twilight back in the day. Me too! Although, I wish Hal had stayed crazy and wish DC had left him in the past. Green Lantern is meant to have a new one for each generation. For me Kyle Rayner is GL. Not sure what the millennials prefers for ...

Re: What comics are you reading now?

Ten issues into Immortal Hulk and I am absolutely loving this title. Thought the title of “Immortal” Hulk was going to play out as a cheap gimmick - boy, was I wrong! Really dark tone to the series, with a really rich depth to the character that I don’t think he’s had in *years*. Dips more than it’...

Re: What comics are you reading now?

After reading Mr. Miracle last year, I picked up Female Furies today....what a waste of money. Bad writing, stereotypes of women that did nothing to enhance the story, and the use of Big Barda made no sense nor supported the continuity of the Mr. Miracle series.

Re: Beginning of 2019 State of the Comic Book Industry

And right now these people aren't even buying homes. They aren't buying anything that is significant, and we are talking about a generation where the high end is now beginning to crank their 30's . Most of that generation is not accumulating wealth so the future looks bleaker for comic collections.

Re: What comics are you reading now?

Lots of great covers from Savage Sword. It's one of my long term goals to start picking those up on the cheap for a binding project. Yeah, the covers are the initial draw... just so much eye appeal. But the stories are complex and fleshed out in a way you don't see in comics today. And the art is a...

The Ultimate Fallout newsstand discussion got me thinking about these.

These nag at me like someday a h...
