The R rated Baywatch movie isn't full of bouncing naked boobs? That's not right. smile

I guess they were trying to avoid offending people who'd never watch a Baywatch movie or TV episode. Not the first TV reboot movie to miss the mark.

On the plus side; they haven't starting rebooting them all - In Space!

The MCU Captain Marvel will be out late next year. She will also be in Avengers 3.
Captain Marvel (Mar-vell) was created in 1967 by Stan Lee & Gene Colan
Carol Danvers (no powers) was created in 1968 by Roy Thomas & Gene Colan
Carol became Ms. Marvel in 1977 thanks to Gerry Conway and John Buscema
In 2012 Ms Marvel changes her superhero name to Captain Marvel. Disney wanted to give Carol a movie, but knew Ms. Marvel wasn't a winning name anymore.

I returned to add notes to this posting but I'm very satisfied with your notes on Spawn #1 variant.

Thank you so much for your support. I sincerely hope the administrators of CPG jump on their back log of missing issues.

As paying CPG members, we all have a vested expectation of their services.

I'll definitely be checking back...

Magically yours,

I hope someone @ CPG addresses your missing issue report, Magic dan... I just logged in here today to check my own report from February (http://comicspriceguide.com/forum/topic6840-missing--variant-amazing-spiderman-.aspx) and nobody has responded yet. Perhaps they don't have enough volunteer administrators.

Your own missing issue report caught my eye and I wanted to reply in support of your post, with some further points for CPG to consider about breaking out Spawn #1 newsstand edition in the guide:

  • Two of the three big grading companies now recognize Spawn #1 copies with UPC codes as distinct variants (denoted "Newsstand Edition" on labels now at CBCS, and PGX).
  • These UPC coded copies are dramatically harder to find than Direct Edition copies (because the vast majority of Image's sales were Direct sales lacking UPC codes... the UPC coded copies were exclusively found on newsstands).
  • And perhaps most importantly for CPG to consider: the newsstand market value has pulled apart to such a degree from the prevalent direct edition, that a distinct guide entry for the newsstand edition is absolutely merited.



Also, CPG should consider breaking out newsstand copies of Spawn #9: All three of the three big grading companies recognize copies of Spawn #9 with UPC codes as distinct variants (denoted "Newsstand Edition"). There are manufacturing differences between the newsstand edition and the direct edition that go well beyond the UPC code itself -- in the case of Spawn #9 there is an actual paper difference where direct edition copies were manufactured with expensive glossy paper, while newsstand edition copies were manufactured with cheap newsprint. Physically different paper causes CGC to "break out" these copies on census as a distinct variant.

Arguably, if CGC or CBCS is breaking out a variant, and if the market value is much higher, then CPG should absolutely have an entry for it. And, there is precedent at CPG already to make the distinction in both cases (i.e. for both Spawn #1 and Spawn #9, comparable situations exist where CPG elected to break out the newsstand copies as variants):

  • ASM v2 #36 provides a precedent for Spawn #1, because CPG has a distinct entry for the more highly valued newsstand edition, and, much like with Spawn #1, the visual difference between the direct edition and the newsstand edition is the presence of a UPC code on the front cover of the newsstand edition (but the absence of the code on the front cover of the direct edition)
  • Spawn Batman has a difference in the paper used between the direct edition and the newsstand edition, and CPG has a distinct entry for the newsstand edition (one that should probably be updated by the way, the value is arguably too low given the extreme rarity difference with the direct edition a dime a dozen and the newsstand edition impossibly hard to find). This provides a precedent for Spawn #9, which similarly has a difference regarding the paper used to manufacture the newsstand edition version of the book.

If you need more recent sales / asking prices to help in valuing these $3.99 cover price variants, I have two new listings to bring to your attention.

(1) An active listing for a $3.99 cover price variant ASM #606 asking $399.99 in CGC 9.6: http://www.ebay.com/itm/282487004757

(2) A recent auction for a raw $3.99 cover price variant ASM #569 described as VF, sold for $42 with 15 bids: http://www.ebay.com/itm/182583643738

I hope this helps... It would be great if an administrator can make a quick reply just to let me know if anyone at CPG has actually read this missing issue report (originally posted in February).

I alerted CPG to some missing issues back in February (http://comicspriceguide.com/forum/topic6840-missing--variant-amazing-spiderman-.aspx) and haven't received any response; this thread makes me wonder if CPG has enough volunteer administrators to actually read and process the reports we've given them?

Apparently one can volunteer at CPG by filling out a form here: http://comicspriceguide.com/about#_volunteer

Must be a ton of work to review this stuff and make entries, especially in this day and age with so many variants... I noticed recently on the Amazing Spider-Man title at CPG, that issue #666 starts on page 18 and continues to page 21... all packed in between with different variations. I can only imagine the poor administrators that had to churn through all that data entry.

Baywatch starring Dwayne Johnson

Dwayne Johnson stars in the new "Baywatch" movie as Mitch Buchanan, the head lifeguard at a California beach. Johnson is the dominant factor in this movie. He has tremendous charisma and just the right touch of humor to playoff Zac Efron's character of a newbie lifeguard. This movie is a hodgepodge of comedy and drama. Of course, that could be just a polite way of saying this movie has no real direction. One minute it is funny and you're laughing and the next there are broken bones and blood all over the place. It kind of reminds me of the "Chips" movie that came out a couple of months ago.
Yes, this movie will get no Academy Awards. However it does entertain. This film is worth seeing knowing that it will not be the greatest movie you will ever see and not the worst movie you ever see. It has a charm. And it is fast moving for a two hour movie. In one part of the movie the characters even talk about hack television shows and what the characters have to do in the shows. I guess this is their way of letting the audience know that they will not be taking themselves seriously in this film.
This is 'R' rated movie and it says graphic nudity, but the graphic nudity in this film is basically a dead man's penis that Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron use in a two minute skit. Considering the hot looking actresses running around the movie one would think that the nudity would concern the female body. There is no nudity of the female body other than there being skimpy bathing suits. Once again Zac Efron has found himself next to a male penis which can only perpetuate homosexuality rumors for him.
One of the secondary female characters in this film is an Indian actress named Priyanka Chopra, who in some ways reminds me of Yasmine Bleeth who was on the Baywatch television show. Perhaps they wanted her on this movie set and she did not want to do it so they said, "Screw you, we will have you on this movie set anyway," and they hired the Indian look alike actress.
I found this version of Baywatch to be entertaining though a few times it was offsetting in the way it would wander around the plot. Dwayne Johnson and his personality show why he is probably the highest paid actor in Hollywood at this moment. This film is worth a view.

Here's something funny that happened at a Half Price bookstore about a year ago. Their main Comic Book Guy came out with a cart of comics to put out and he saw me going through the clearance comics which I always do first and I could tell I put him at unease. He started putting some comics out and I was really finished going thru the clearance comics, but I sort of patiently pretended I was still looking while I was waiting for him to put out all the books. He put out some and then took the cart back. I think he was going to go over them more carefully and then bring some out later on. So I looked at what he'd put out and he had put out a bunch of early Gotham City Sirens and I bought some of the more important issues and left the store a few, because I did not want to seem too greedy. Then I went to the sales counter to purchase them and he came back out to help at the registers and before he left he glanced over to see what I was buying and he said, "There goes all my Gotham City Sirens did you leave me any?" And I said, yes, there are still some there. He knows that I always know what the hot comics are, so I figured it was no use coming back anytime too soon because he would certainly go over the comic books he had in his cart again. Since the store is really out of my way I have been careless not checking it lately,but I do not think he is there anymore. If so then perhaps I had better start making more frequent visits as it usually takes a new person a while to figure out what is actually happening for the current modern market.
I personally liked the guy and we were friendly. I can't blame him for trying to look out for the store as best he could.

I just read on another post that new titles aren't always getting added. I noticed a million and one different covers for this title on ebay and was hoping to get a list, so I turned here. Apparently I was wrong...
I'm hoping that these can be compiled and listed soon.
