MarvelPremiere47

What’s that you say? You’d like to know what sorts of old, expensive comics we have for sale?

Marvel Premiere #47 is the first appearance of movie star Scott Lang in his fancy-schmansy Ant-Man costume. I’d love to sell you a nice CBCS graded 9.2 (Near Mint Minus) copy, but I’m afraid you would have to part with $180 in American currency.
(image above is not our actual comic)

We have a nice Inhumans Volume 1 #1 in Fine Plus (6.5) condition for a mere $25. C’mon! Twenty-five dollars! You’ve probably spent more than that on caffeinated beverages this week!

If the Inhumans aren’t your style, then perhaps I can interest you in this lovely copy of Deathstroke #1 in Near Mint Minus (9.2) condition for $20. Now, just to clarify, this is the first New 52 Deathstroke series from back in 2011 not the second Deathstroke New 52 series from 2015. Subtle but important difference.

If single issues aren’t what you’re after, then how about a nice Flashpoint set? All five issues of the main Flashpoint miniseries for just $35.

As the demons and plagues of the new Harbinger deck wreak havoc throughout Talisman, three new characters seek the Crown of Command. Their quest is more dangerous than ever before: cursed Followers lie in wait for fresh prey, dire Omens darken the skies, and the terrain itself suddenly transforms as time runs out for the entire realm.

DUNGEON FIGHTER FIRE AT WILL EXPANSION
Dive right into the fun with The Big Wave, the second expansion Dungeon Fighter that immerses you in the ocean’s mysterious depths. The pirate Jack Parrot brings his maritime experience (and his parrot) to the party of heroes as they battle a whole host of underwater monsters, such as the Waterlogged Zombie and the Sea Witch. New equipment and power cards arm you with water magic to help you conquer The Great Cthulhu before he wraps you in his tentacles, while three water elemental dice and new game board pieces create additional dexterity-based challenges.
Come off the frying pan and into the flames with Fire at Will! This first expansion for Dungeon Fighter sets monsters, weapons, and heroes ablaze with a new heroine, Melissa the Fire Sorceress, who joins the party as they journey through a cave in the fire mountains and combat scorching monsters like the fire-breathing Bullrog. Experience tokens reward heroes for their efforts and power cards give them access to fire magic, while additional game board pieces such as the firewall and the fire ring introduce new ways to throw the dice. Can you and your fellow heroes stand the heat, or will you be burnt playing with fire?

Expertly crafted with a full range of articulation, the Cad Bane in Denal Disguise Sixth Scale Figure is an excellent addition to any Star Wars: The Clone Wars or bounty hunter collection.

Cake is a Card Wars champ who can’t be beat, and Fionna…is really tired of getting beaten! They set off in search of a challenger who can really test Cake’s mettle.

BOOK OF DEATH 1
BOOK OF DEATH #1 (OF 4)
A coward dies a thousand times before his death, but the valiant taste of death but once.’  The Valiant heroes. X-O Manowar. Bloodshot. Ninjak. The Harbinger Renegades. Unity. This is how they lived. This is how they died.  Now we know. The Book of the Geomancer has recorded it all. But only a young girl – the last in a line of the enigmatic mystics who protect the Earth known as Geomancers – has seen this future come to pass, from the coming cataclysm to the dawn of the 41st century. Alone with her sworn protector, the Eternal Warrior – a soldier battle-forged across five thousand years of combat – the duo must defy their allies to stop the Dark Age that now threatens to eclipse our world.  Together, they are the number one target of every hero and villain on Earth. Either the Eternal Warrior hands her over  or they take him down. But can even he single-handedly protect one child when the entire Valiant Universe wages war against him?  The blockbuster Valiant event of 2015 starts here as New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (X-O MANOWAR) joins superstar-in-the-making Robert Gill (ARMOR HUNTERS: HARBINGER) and visionary artist Doug Braithwaite (ARMOR HUNTERS) to begin a thousand-year journey into the future of the Valiant Universe  and rain, fire, blood and war on the heroes of today.

MTGMagicOrigins
MAGIC THE GATHERING TCG: MAGIC ORIGINS
The Magic Multiverse is a boundless expanse of worlds, each different from the last. These worlds, called planes, differ as wildly as imagination allows. It is these many planes of existence that form the diverse settings of Magic’s ongoing storyline. While average beings are unaware of worlds beyond their own, Planeswalkers know the greater truth: Each plane is but one of many, with unique mana and magic that could be theirs to control.
Expansion sets typically have a single setting; every card in a set—usually every card in a given block of sets—shows creatures, spells, and locations from a single plane of existence. Core sets like Magic 2015, on the other hand, embrace the diversity of Magic’s history, showcasing cards set on many worlds.
Magic Origins is a core set, but it’s built around the origin stories of five Planeswalkers: Gideon Jura (formerly Kytheon Iora), Jace Beleren, Liliana Vess, Chandra Nalaar, and Nissa Revane. Each of them has a home plane, and each of them unlocked their potential as a Planeswalker and traveled to a new plane.
Those ten worlds—five home planes, five destination planes—form the core of Magic Origins. In the set, each of those worlds is strongly associated with two colors. Cards in the set that are from that world are concentrated in those two colors, although not confined to them.
Magic the Gathering TCG: Magic Origins comes in the form of the following products; Intro Packs, Booster Packs, Fat Packs, Two-Player Clash Decks and Deck Builder’s Tool Kits.

 

ChewCasesoftheFDA
CHEW: CASES OF THE FDA
Based on the Eisner Award-winning comic series by John Layman and Rob Guillory, CHEW: Cases of the FDA seats 2-5 players and is playable in about 30 minutes. Players compete to close cases pulled directly from the pages of the ongoing comic book. They’ll enlist partners like John Colby, Amelia Minz, and even Buttercup the lion, while simultaneously sending fiendish villains and cultists out to sabotage their rivals’ investigations.

 

EndoftheWorldWrathGods
THE END OF THE WORLD: WRATH OF THE GODS
Strange humanoid creatures, stinking of seaweed, shamble out of Earth’s oceans as a mind-breaking horror rises from R’lyeh. The massive wolf Fenrir awakens beneath the Scandes mountain range as Jörmungandr, the world-serpent, writhes out of the Pacific. Earthquakes shake the world as Earth itself attempts to eradicate mankind. The supernatural has become irrevocably intertwined with the physical, and you’ll need all of your skills and talents just to survive for another day. The world will shake beneath the wrath of the gods!
The supernatural enters the physical world in Wrath of the Gods, the second book in The End of the World roleplaying line! With the scenarios included in this book, you can take up arms with heroes of yore and the Norse gods, or flee from the mind-bending terror of Cthulhu. You may hide from the Four Horsemen as the events of Revelation take place, speak to Quetzalcoatl as the Mayan apocalypse unfolds, or battle wild beasts as Earth itself turns on us. Wrath of the Gods brings you as close as you can (safely) come to supernatural powers ending civilization!
This roleplaying game offers you the chance to play as yourself during the tumult of the apocalypse, using an elegant, narrative ruleset. Wrath of the Gods contains five unique scenarios, each offering a different take on the end of humanity by divine wrath. Each scenario also contains an apocalypse and a post-apocalypse, allowing you to survive the initial panic and make your way in life after the world’s ending.

 

FireflyTallCard
FIREFLY: TALL CARD
Straight out of the Firefly ‘verse comes Firefly: Tall Card! With rules and artwork inspired by the game played on Firefly, Tall Card will make you feel like you’re a fellow crew member aboard Serenity! Each box contains a 66-card deck, including the round “Tall Cards” as seen on Firefly! Also included are more than 50 additional cards so you can create other Tall Card variants.
The gameplay is similar to draw poker, but the suits are inspired by Mah Jong tiles so the composition of the deck is very different from a standard 52-card deck.

 

DCDECKTEENTITANS
DC COMICS DECK-BUILDING GAME: TEEN TITANS
Teen Titans go! You’ve played with the old guard. Now play as the youthful up-and-comers. Play as Raven, Beast Boy, Wonder Girl, Red Robin and more. The Teen Titans are all about proving themselves, and with this set you can save your best cards for when you really need them. When you’re ready, unleash everything you’ve got and the results will be spectacular.
The big new focus of DC Comics Deck-Building Game: Teen Titans revolves around Ongoing abilities: Cards that stay in play until you need them. Every time you put an Ongoing card into play, it essentially gives you an extra card to utilize on a future turn. Previously, only Locations and a couple of other cards could ever stay in play. Now every card type at every power level has multiple different cards with Ongoing. Sometimes they help you every turn. But mostly they stay in play until you choose to discard them for their mighty effects. If you can build up several Ongoing cards, unleash as many as you need to take down the Super-Villains!
This set also pays attention to the different card types you have in play. Playing cards from your hand puts cards into play as usual. But with Ongoing cards out there, you often have several card types in play already. Such synergy!

 

MarvelDiceMastersAgeUltron
MARVEL DICE MASTERS: AGE OF ULTRON
Marvel Dice Masters: Age of Ultron is a collectible dice-building tabletop game designed by Quarriors! creators Michael Elliott and Eric M. Lang.
In this game, each player fields one of the superhero teams, with each hero — Rocket Raccoon, Groot, Captain Marvel, Daredevil, Kang and more — being represented by custom-tooled dice; each team must be composed of 15 dice, and a player can “purchase” dice only from his team. Each hero also has one or more character reference cards, which show the special abilities for the characters based on the die rolls. Different versions of these cards will be available in booster packs, allowing for more customization of your team. Players use these dice to collect energy, recruit new heroes, and battle head-to-head. In addition, each player brings two basic action cards to the game, which are placed in the center of the table; both players can purchase these cards. A player wins once the opposing player has been reduced to zero life.
The Marvel Dice Masters: Age of Ultron starter sets come with 44 custom dice, 38 cards, two dice bags, and a core rulebook. Booster packs include two dice with two matching character cards.

WARHAMMER: AGE OF SIGMAR
The World Before Time is gone. Shattered. Consigned to an oblivion no-one thought possible. The metallic core of that ill-fated world was hurled through the cosmos, the God-King Sigmar clinging desperately to its sigmarite surface. Aeons passed, until the core caught the attention of the great drake Dracothion; it was he who rescued Sigmar, and taught him the secrets of the Mortal Realms – connected by Realmgates and peacefully populated for many years.
But even in this utopia, Chaos would find a way to corrupt and distort everything. The Age Of Chaos gradually turned life in the realms into hell. Embracing wisdom instead of strength, Sigmar retreated to the Celestial Realm and began assembling the greatest mortal warriors, steeping them in the magic of the stars and instilling them with absolute divinity.
The Stormcast Eternals, as Sigmar named them, are ready. Sigmar’s storm is lined up to unleash its fury on the forces of chaos. The realms will tremble and the skies will scorch as the legions of the Dark Gods feel the blistering rage of the Stormhosts!
The Age Of Sigmar has arrived.
Warhammer Age of Sigmar is a fantastic starter set for any and all fans of Warhammer! Detailing the first incursions of the Realmgate Wars, this box set contains everything you need to begin your adventures in the Age Of Sigmar.

GAME OF CROWNS
Many will sit on a throne, but only one can wear the crown! Long ago, the great Ruelen Empire was united under a single banner. In the aftermath of Ruele`s Doom, the Empire was shattered, torn apart into nine houses each led by one of the Emperors former council. The realm was thrown into bitter conflict, as each of the nine houses vied for power over the others – each seeking to reunite the broken Empire under their rule. This conflict became known as the Game of Crowns. In Game of Crowns, each player takes control of one of the nine noble houses, using clever planning, skillful negotiation, and daring confrontations to gain dominance over their rivals to seize the crown!

cap47      Captain America Comics $37 (not actual comic at EC)
Happy Fireworks Day everybody! What better way to show your patriotism than by coming into EC this Fourth of July and helping to pull the nation out of this Recession by stimulating the local economy! In honor of Independence Day we here at EC are having a big sale: 20% of off anything in the store that is red, white and blue! Well … 20% off of anything besides Vintage Comics, which includes the four books I’m about to tell you about, but still 20% off of ALMOST everything in the store is still pretty awesome! So without further ado, here are a selection of very patriotic Captain America comics which are FOR sale but not ON sale this Fourth of July.

First we have this lovely Very Fine+ (8.5) condition copy of Captain America Volume 5 #6, the first full appearance of Bucky as the Winter Soldier for $35. I know “Winter Soldier” is a lot more B.A. than “Bucky” but I still call him Bucky or occasionally Commie Bucky.

Whoa-Ho! Lookit this nice Golden Age Cap book we have here! Captain America Comics #47 from all the way back in June of 1945. It’s a CGC graded 6.0 (Fine) and you can bring it home with you for the low, low price of $1,800.

If that book seems a little steep, then hows about a nice CGC graded 7.5 (Very Fine Minus) copy of Captain America #117, the first appearance of longtime Captain America chum The Falcon, for $350? Not sure if you know this or not, but The Falcon has recently been promoted from the rank of “longtime chum” up to full fledged “Captain America Himself” status. I know “Captain America” or “The Falcon” sounds a lot more B.A. but I like to call him Glide Man because that’s his superpower … he’s an excellent glider.

Ooo! Here’s a hot little number! How about a set of Captain America issues 357 through 364 for $90? Issues 357 through 364 is the entire Bloodstone Hunt story which contains the first appearance of longtime Captain America non-chum Crossbones. Crossbones is going to be in the next Captain America flick so his first appearance is quite sought after at the moment, so why not come and buy these books before someone else beats you to the punch? After all, nothing tells the world how big a patriot you are than buying comic books which feature the first appearance of a villainous terrorist who routinely tries to kill an American war hero!

Fairytale Gloom

FAIRYTALE GLOOM
The Game of Grim Incidents and Unhappily-Ever-Afters

Let’s face it: Fairy tales are awful. Wolves and old women eat children, giants fall from the sky, and even young girls break-and-enter to steal porridge from unsuspecting families.

In Fairytale Gloom, custom collections of fairy tale characters like Jack, Gretel, Puss in Boots, and Little Red Riding Hood do their best to stay happy, but circumstances conspire to rain woe on their sad, benighted heads.

These heroes become beasts, give up on Grandma, and cry wolf once too often. Even though they look into magic mirrors and kill golden geese, most end their days living in giant shoes… or worse.

Eventually, enough Unhappy Endings come to pass that the game ends. And then? The most miserable collection of characters wins.

Fairytale Gloom is a stand-alone game that’s also compatible with all existing Gloom core games and expansions.

 

 

DoctorWhoVillains

MONOPOLY: DOCTOR WHO VILLAINS

TradersofOsaka

SushiDraft

SUSHI DRAFT
Five deluxe sushi rolls are on the menu, but you will need to pick your rolls strategically if you want to eat your way to victory. Each turn, you will pick one sushi to eat, one to keep, and then pass the rest to the player next to you. Earn points by eating more of one type of sushi than your opponents, or earn dessert (more points!) for the most variety on your plate. Sushi Draft is quick to learn and fun for the whole family, and is the perfect introduction to the classic genre of pick-and-pass/card-drafting games!

 

 

EminentDomainMicrocosm

EMINENT DOMAIN: MICROCOSM
The galaxy just got a whole lot smaller…

Two mighty empires are about to collide. Play your cards right and become the ultimate ruler of this microcosm!

Eminent Domain: Microcosm is a quick-playing two-player card game which brings you all the thrill of building a space empire in just 15-20 minutes. Each turn you take a card into your hand from the supply, then you either play a card and carry out its instructions, or pick up your discard pile to refill your hand. Each card also has a scoring condition on it, and to win you’ll want to maximize those conditions.

ForbiddenStars
FORBIDDEN STARS
The shifting Warp Storms that surround the long lost Herakon Cluster have finally abated, leaving the ancient treasures and planets within this sector open to the rest of the galaxy. Now, the great factions of the galaxy mobilize their fleets and race to establish a foothold. The reward for successful domination surpasses all other concerns, and the price for conquering this sector will be paid in lives.
Forbidden Stars challenges you and up to three other players to take command of a mighty fighting force: the Ultramarines chapter of Space Marines, the Eldar of Craftworld Iyanden, the Evil Sunz Ork clan, or the World Eaters Warband of the Chaos Space Marines. Each faction offers unique armies and play styles, but your goal remains the same – to claim the key objectives selected for your faction. These objective tokens are scattered throughout the Herakon Cluster, but your opponents are sure to defend your objectives against you. You need to build massive armies and command them in unending war to best your enemies and claim your objectives. The fight for the Herakon Cluster is brutal and bloody, and you will either stride triumphant over the bodies of your fallen foes, or they will do the same to you.

WELL! Let’s just see what we have here.

Amazing Spider-Man #654 and #654.1 are the first appearance of Agent Venom. Venom was already pretty gnarly before, but then the government gave him a gun which appears to have increased his gnar-quotient significantly, because Amazing Spider-Man #654 and #654.1 sell really quickly. $45 for the pair.

X-Factor #24 CBCS Signature Series 9.4 (Near Mint) for $125. First appearance of Archangel AND it’s signed by Walt Simonson. Archangel is gonna be in the next X-Men movie so everybody is after a copy of this one. Can’t do much better than a 9.4 Signature Series! Well, I guess you could get a 9.6 Signature Series or something but we don’t have one of those so why not just buy this one?

Whoa! Marvel Premiere #7! First Rocket Raccoon in a Very Fine/Fine (7.0) for $375. He’s a space raccoon for Pete’s sake! A raccoon from outer space! Which when you think about it means he should probably be called Space Raccoon because I don’t think he really travels by rocket or anything. Maybe Spaceship Raccoon … but whatever, Rocket Raccoon sounds better.

WHAT! Next Men #21! First appearance of Hellboy! He’s a boy from Hell, well that is to say that he WAS a boy from Hell who grew up into a man who was originally from Hell which when you think about it means that the character should probably be called Hellman since most of his exploits are during his adulthood … but whatever, Hellboy sounds cooler. Anyways, our nice Near Mint Minus (9.2) copy is a mere $75. It’s our only first appearance of Hellman so you’d better buy it sooner rather than later.

ElfquestAdventureGame
ELFQUEST ADVENTURE GAME
Elfquest’s World of Two Moons is calling! Gather your elf tribe together – your very survival is at stake. Life can be difficult, even brutal, as you deal with fearful and violent humans, treacherous and manipulative trolls, and all manner of strange creatures and harsh environments.
It is time to embark on an epic journey of discovery to seek and find long-hidden answers about your mythical elfin ancestors, the High Ones. Each player selects a character, gathers up their attending items, skills and allies and joins their tribe-mates to complete tasks, events and quests.
There are a limited number of seasons during which you need to complete each scenario card. If you fail to do so, every member of your tribe loses resources (cards, tokens and cubes). If ever a character runs out of cubes, they are killed and removed from the game.
Each scenario pulls directly from 35+ years of Richard & Wendy Pini’s epic saga of comics and graphic novels. Sometimes your tribe will have to fight humans, negotiate with new elf tribes, travel across snow-laden mountains, mate to increase your tribe’s numbers, hunt and harvest to keep everyone fed or craft new items to help in your journey.
This cooperative game for 1-4 players delivers all the wonder, passion, danger, compassion and betrayal of the original best-selling series. It features the breathtaking artwork of Wendy Pini interwoven with the imaginative game design of Layman Kingsford. You will stretch your gaming and social skills as you interact with the extraordinary realm of Elfquest as you’ve never seen it before!

 

DungeonFighter
DUNGEON FIGHTER
Players take on the roles of heroes venturing deep into a three-tier dungeon. Along their way, they explore the dungeon, search its many rooms, and face endless hordes of vicious monsters.
Where Dungeon Fighter stands apart is in its unique dexterity-based elements. Players take turns throwing dice at a colorful target board, often from several feet away! What’s more, randomly drawn dungeon effects may dictate that a player must throw his die behind his back, with his eyes closed, under his leg, or under any combination of (often hilarious) restrictions. Keep a steady hand a clear mind, and your team with emerge victorious!
