I asked to be removed from the CGC forum because of all the cliques that were more interested in posting memes than they were discussing comics.

I have been reading the CGC forum for about nine yea ...

I own a CGC 9.4 copy of this book. I want to sell it, but the sold prices on eBay never seem to settle around a number. Just when the price appears to settle, a copy will sell for about 30% higher or ...

I can confidently state I have never seen that magazine at a Canadian store or convention. Occasionally the boxes will contain some Detroit or New York City local stuff.

I have a short list of a couple of specific issues that I pick up whenever I see them. I don't advertise that fact other than to say I'm doing it (like now). The reason that I don't shout the issue ...

Maybe I have not read enough of your forum posts, but you do not come across as a "polarizing personality" to me. Perhaps there was one time when you took a hard-line stance against Kurt Bus ...

I do not recall reading this article on the message board three years ago, but I may have forgotten doing so. It was very informative. I would suggest re-working the fourth paragraph as much of its co ...

Nice number, whetteon!

"Unreal" is an apt word for the market. I would have been unable to get $3k (in CAD) for my entire collection in 2015. Today, on eBay, my high-grade copy of Edge Of ...

This is one of those books where all the cheap copies dried up in my area over six years ago. It may be on the rise again on eBay after years of price stagnation. I suppose every X-Men book with a fir ...

Wowers. That's a nice parting gift. And I love that Defiant.

She's not upset with me. She had said two weeks earlier that she brags about me to all of her friends. I've been there for her through a ...

This was another nice call by you, whetteon! Incredible Hulk #449 in CGC 9.8 condition will soon hit $1000 on eBay, unless the market collapses. Many copies have popped up over the past year on the ho ...
