My goal is around 9 to 10 for avengers 83. The last 2 are on their way. One was a great steal. I bought it as a VF- for $13 and sent it for pressing as I noticed most of the flaws are non color breaking creases. After a press, it became a 9.2 Very Happy

Are you buying #361 from LCS? Ebay wise, I know prices are hitting new high right now.

Speaking of #361, here is another one for you Whetteon. All 2nd prints.





Okay and that's fantastic getting a 9.2 in that situation!

I've bought some #361's as slab's, but mostly raws. I'm being patient and nabbing the bargains. LCS here are almost non-existent and don't have back issues.

Nice stash of the 2nd prints as well! Thumbs Up

Hopefully he wouldn't disappoint...

My latest batch of comics have arrived in the mailbox!

Sadly this will be my last purchase for the year. I want to stop myself until I have sold off my current investments, which wouldn't happen this year unless adam warlock appears. Very Happy

So, here is one of my latest hoards.
It is my love confession to Zatanna!

So far so good!. I have not bought a single comic in May. It is lucky that there is no real new issues that I feel I have to get in on. I have most of everything that is the topic of our speculation. Very Happy

Do you think those Zantana's will be the next hot thing after the Hawkman #4 book? Think

Not really. I just liked them as a collector. Those Adam Huges covers are a killer! Thumbs Up

Surprisingly, there isn't a lot of them out there for sale on Ebay.

A shame that more people don't care about issue #15. That's just a gorgeous cover. She looks great on it.

By the way, have you noticed the price upswing in Amazing Spider-Man #361 2nd prints? I'm curious as to how long you will hold these until you sell them. In other words, are they part of some sort of timed portfolio and when will that portfolio be sold?

I like the fact that Zatanna was an ex lover of one of my favourites characters : John Constantine

Man, I thought I was the only one who loves #15. It looks absolutely gorgeous and should be up there along with catwoman #51 and supergirl and the legion #23 variant. Hopefully, one day it will! Applause

Definite upswing on the second print. I am going to sell some when carnage is confirmed in the venom movie. Going to keep 2 or 3 copies for myself Very Happy

#361 is actually in my portfolio 3 which I didn't flesh out in the other thread. Maybe I should along with a few more others Think
