*** Editor’s note: Sorry, we missed posting this on September 10th! D’oh!   HACHI-MACHI! Sorry! Been busy! Mucho, mucho busy! However my absence has not been in vain. These many efforts of both myself and others have born fruit. They’re looking pretty nice! Have a gander!   Ultimate Fallout #4, first appearance of Miles Morales, Near […]

That new Venom trailer! WOOOOO! Not too many people can pull off a crushed velvet jacket but apparently Woody Harrelson is on that short list. What can’t that guy do, right? Amazing Spider-Man #361 Newsstand cover, first full appearance of Carnage, Near Mint Minus (9.2), $379.

* Sorry folks – a glitch kept two weeks worth of “Jabbers” from posting!   Lets see what we have for everybody this week. Couple of Thors – Beta Ray Bill in the house! We have a Madame Xanadu set here; guess that she’s going to be on the Tee-Vee now. And a Hellboy to […]

* Sorry folks – a glitch kept two weeks worth of “Jabbers” from posting! Whenever I played the Konami Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arcade game I always played Raphael even though Raphael was obviously the worst character in the game. Loyal to a fault. No range. Raph had zero range. I would occasionally play Michelangelo […]

Cindy Brady: “Marvel, Marvel , MARVEL!”   All I sell is Marvel these days! C’mon man! I DARE someone to come in here and ask me for a non-Marvel key! PLEASE! I’M BEGGIN’ YA!!   A young guy came in the other day and asked me for some Robert Crumb stuff and it made my […]

We got us a coupla’ books here what’s been signed an’ another coupla’ books what ain’t been signed! There is an old saying that states that “ain’t” ain’t a word. That is true, “ain’t” AIN’T a word. It’s a contraction. “Ain’t” is actually two words combined to form one super-word! Super words for super books… […]

Lot of people asking me “How about these prices” (or some version of this) lately. Simple economics folks. Demand is up and, at least for a lot of the most collectible back issues, available supply is perceived to be declining. To all of my fellow collectors I recommend the following: buy only what you really […]

This complete set of The Crew that we have here would make a nice companion piece to The Truth set that I featured a few weeks back. First appearance of father and son respectively, two generations of the Bradley family! I still have them both so, y’know…if you’re interested…you just go ahead and let us […]

Got a fresh batch right here for ya’ folks!   A fresh batch of comics, that is. It’s important to be specific.   I’d hate for you to think I had a fresh batch of… I dunno… socks or something for ya’. Boring old socks. Who cares about those?   Marvel Premiere #15, first appearance […]

Two-Face possessed by the Carnage Symbiote!! Probably not going to happen anytime soon, unfortunately. However, Silver Surfer possessed by the Carnage Symbiote; that already happened. See, it’s right here next to Two-Face’s ugly mug.   Batman #234, first Silver Age appearance of Harvey Dent aka Two-Face, CGC Old Label 9.4 (Near Mint), $1,299.

Only one Lazer Swordz book this week but I have more. Oh yes … there are more. They are on Instagram and also right behind me on our wall display. They’re right up on the wall with these guys here.   Truth #1-7, first appearance of Isaiah Bradley, Very Fine (8.0) set, $199.

Well, it’s been a little while now. I suppose it might be time to quickly remind everyone that Lazer Swordz are FOREVER! Lazer. Swordz. FOREVER!   Star Wars Tales #13, first appearance of an infant of Yoda’s species (it’s not Grogu though), Very Fine/Near Mint Minus (9.2), $59.

Hey! HEY! How about these old humor mags here! Classic yucks from back in the day here folks! Hard to find these old funny books, so if you like ’em you better grab ’em. Truly rare finds here so don’t miss your shot at these.   Mad #1, CGC 6.5 (Fine Plus), $2,999.

Got a few Modern Age keys this week including one issue featuring a character that I didn’t even know existed until I priced her first appearance.   Had any of you ever heard of Vampire By Night before now?   If the answer is yes, then that’s a big hats off to you because you, […]

Two-Face doesn’t really have two faces. He has one partially scarred face.   I guess Partially Scarred Faceman doesn’t have the same ring to it as Two-Face.   I think I prefer Partially Scarred Faceman though. It’s both more accurate and more fun to say. Not as succinct as Two-Face, but I think I still […]

Let’s take a break from Lazer Swordz for a second and have a look at these nice Spider-Man keys, shall we? We’re always happy to see classic Spider-Man issues here at the store. I hope to never live so long that I somehow outgrow my fondness for Spider-Man. A darker fate, I dare not imagine… […]

AW, THE HECK WITH IT!! Let’s just keep this Lazer Swordz train a-rollin’ on down the tracks! Where is that Lazer Swordz train headed, you may well ask? Why to a galaxy far, far, away of course. Star Wars Tales #24, first appearance of Darth Nihilus and Darth Traya, Very Fine/Near Mint (9.0), $149.

“BOBA FETT?  BOBA FETT!  WHERE?!” At which point Han Solo accidentally booty-bumps Boba Fett’s jetpack (which either has an “on” switch on the rear panel for some reason or is malfunctioning and in need of serious repair) sending Fett flying into the Great Pit of Carkoon where he somehow managed to surviving being eaten by […]

Thanos versus Darth Vader!! Just sayin’ … could happen! Disney owns them both, so it could happen someday! It would have to be Thanos without the Gauntlet though. Otherwise it wouldn’t be a fair fight.   Iron Man #55, first appearance of Thanos and Drax, CGC 7.0 (Very Fine/Fine), $699.99
