kinda sad tho.. I love the feeling of walking into a comic book store .. your heart starts racing... ( will they have the Must Have issues I need..??).. just a thought tho.. lol

Does it have the tatooz insert in tact? Either way great pickup! Loved me some 238 when I was a kid. Intro to hobbie woot!

Its true, there is nothing like walking into a well stocked comic den and searching for goodies. I could spend all day doing that. But you cant beat the sheer selection available online. Easy to find that tricky isssue or htf gem.
Much bigger hit on the wallet when you go online though, its so darn easy to spend.

The real heart racing moments are when you find old comics in garage sales. Flipping through those stacks? Now thats like crack cocaine. Hellofadrug

nice deal, but 9.4 asm 238 goes for $100-$120 depending on page quality. I have a 9.6 white pages I would be happy to get $200 for 9.8 you can get for under $400. by next year you'll be able to get a 9.8 for $300.
There are deals to be had on ebay, but it takes sifting through tons of overpriced, overgraded stuff. Recently I've gotten some real steals on the monthly auctions at comiclink, comiconnect, mycomicshop, heritage. There is so much on auction between all theses sites and others that there are always a good 10% of books that for some reason or another don't get many bids. If you haven't checked these I recommend it. you also get to see some of the really high end stuff. Books that go for 20k 60k 200k and more, and on the other side books that go for $6 and everything in between. Also original comic art like the B&W pencils of covers or pages which show a lot of the talent and details of the greats that is lost after inking. I've been waiting for something I like to stay in my price range since I've never bought one before.

Still 3 days left but am curious to see what this 9.8 ends up going for:

Well without your brick aand mortar store you wouldn't have much in the way of eBay sales. I haven't bought on eBay for quite a while now and when I was I certainly wasn't getting bargains Wink

I agree with all that Smile

238 is a great story; interesting new bad guy; and we like the cover. A 1st app should have the character on the cover - Hulk #180 & Strange Tales #110 are examples of WRONG...

It's been a long time since I've seen a well stocked comic den. Fond memories. I remember one (a guy named Marv) - had about 10 long boxes of golden age in his 100+ box inventory (formerly his personal collection) - he didn't do very good at restocking... I remember one that was going out of business; 1st everything was half price, after a couple months everything left got marked down to ten cents - at that price, I spent hours filling 4 longboxes - including 6 NM- or better copies of Nova #1 and two F+ copies of Yak Yak (from Dell's Four Color series written and drawn entirely by Jack Davis)... There was one bookstore that had comics - unbagged in Tide boxes - on sheves in the restroom... Used bookstores were great fun, and every town had several; often there was a cat who lived there. There was one bookstore I used to frequent that had all used paperbacks and comics for 6/$1 - I'm not very picky at that price. Laugh Amazon killed those stores. And various taxes, if you're selling used books for pennies apiece, you have to keep overhead costs very low.

Laugh So true.


"In my time nightmares walked among us... walked and danced. Skewering victims in plain sight. Laying their fears and worst desires out for everyone to see, just to make us laugh.
And now nightmares are trapped inside the heads of humans. Pitiful echoes of themselves. I wonder whom they angered so to merit such a fate."

it just takes alot of spare time to find the deals.. I got new mutants 98 and it has to be in atleast 9.8 condition and it also came with 85 other comics in the lot for 80.00 free shipping.. so pretty much i paid for first appearance of deadpool and got the other comics for free.. and i got walking dead issue 3 for 75.00 in nm condition its worth 300.00 or so.. thats a steal !!

When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”
