    Very Nice, I always like the race issues. I don't think it will be too long before we see one in the new dc after what happened in JL 2.

    Absolutely, I'd be surprised if we didn't end up with a race or two, everyone always loves them! :thumbsup:

    I had a liitle delivery on Saturday and was in little comic orgasmic mode as I savoured the moment (accompanied by angels goinmg "Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh" in the backgroud) of around 10 pieces. I wrote this on another site:

    And my daughters scanner does just what I need. The crappy photo's I took always had flash bounces on the cover, meaning I had to shhot them at an angle, which did not really work, were the scanner could get all the detail (and flaws) in crisp detail. I will be adding more scans soon to here as I am still tinkering...

    Those plus 2 others yes. Twelve 40+ year old Daredevils in FN-VFN condition and I probably paid approx half the guide price overall.

    Cheers!

    I am waiting for them to arrive (I have some others as well, but nothing special) from the US. A massive collection of high grade Daredevil from issue 1 onwards and with three days to go, no one had bid anything other than token amounts.

    I had a 'spare' £100, and started to bid. Sadly, it seems as though someone went higher than the 50-60% I bid on each indivual issue but also had enough to continually bid more than me. So while I had to wait until I was outbid (then freeing up cash to bid again) they could continue to bid. :(

    I though I was grabbing issues 80-100 or so, totally around £100, and my bids of £24 for multiples of 5 issues was outbid by a few dollars (and sniping as well, they really need to stop that! :mad:).

    The bids all ended up finishing from 7pm to 6am, and I was struggling to stay awake (and slightly annoyed at being outbid) and so went to bed dropping $90 on 131 and $10 on another 6 or so bids that covered newer and less valuable issues that I needed.

    I woke up to find that I won 131 for around £45 (normally a VFN/NM copy is around £80) and another 30 'newer' issues for around £4 total.

    Then got crippled for £30 postage :D

    I saw some Marvel comics today in the Works, they have random issues of X-Men and Avengers (modern era ones), two issues in a bag for 99p, I was tempted to buy them just so I could post them in here lol.

    I know why I don't have a collection of floppies it's because I wasn't introduced to Marvel comics when I was a young Cloyst, there was no Marvel wherever I was buying Beano & Dandy comics from :(, I only got into Marvel through piracy maybe six years back (shock horror piracy making Marvel a heap of cash) I'd find myself reading a series then anything I liked I wanted to buy in a nice glossy shiny format with lovely large art and quality paper.

    One advantage floppies have is there's no gutter loss like in the expensive hardcovers, look at this page. This is from Realm of Kings which has a sewn binding, the ones with glued bindings are even worse. I'd love to be able to see the art!.

    Poor Crystal is just lost in friggin gutter. You can't read it normally, you gotta stamp it down and look at it from an angle instead of head on.

    Exhibit A look at panel with Ronan & Quicksilver, you can hardly tell Crystal is there!

    Exhibit B this is my pulling the pages as far left as I can with my thumb

    Amazing!, Amazon.com managed to ship all five of my chunky Marvel books to me without damaging any of them!. Box took a beating as it was way bigger than the books so they could slide about, they had 15 of those airbag things in there (only on one side - they'd put them in a place which wouldn't stop the books moving) but all but one of them were deflating so they must have been doing a grand job absorbing all the impacts.

    Thats the only thing i hate about amazon is the packaging. I would by some book from waterstones but i see people in there reading them and bending back the covers.

    Any suggestions as to what company sends graphic novels out that are well packed?

    Bought my first ever comic recently (outside of The Dandy and Beano when I was a kid anyway!). Just got the monster Walking Dead Compendium 1....1000 pages :eek:

    I've just finished watching season 2 of the TV series, so will be interesting to see a. how this compares to the TV series and b. how I'm going to find reading a comic again after all these years...
