“Justin’s Jabber” – Back Issue Comics! 2/5/21

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

Welp, we have ourselves a very Bat-Family heavy assortment on offer this week, with a little splash of Star Wars – or as I prefer to call it “Lazer Swordz: Journey To The Middle of Whenever!” While we’re on the subject of Lazer Swordz, I’d like to take this opportunity to ask once AGAIN, Mr. […]

It’s that time of year again! Sleigh bells and sweaters and carolers and what have you. Well, when that familiar heavy-set fellow burglarizes your house yet again, helping himself to your cookies and tracking chimney soot all over the sitting room – here’s hoping he leaves some sweet comics from EC under the tree for […]

Got some nice sets for everybody this week! Sure you could get the trade paperback collections of these classic yarns, but c’mon! Those trades are printed on nice, brand new, glossy paper.

I had some reservations about featuring the copy of Killing Joke this week because it’s the only book out of the four whose price doesn’t end in a nine. That’s The Joker for you I suppose. That dude is always throwing off the equilibrium, isn’t he? Batman: The Killing Joke, first print, Very Fine/Near Mint […]

Mixed bag this week. Little bit of everything here, except Marvel. That’s not really by design or anything, but do bear in mind that I showed you lovely folks nothing but Marvels last week.

‘Member movie theaters? I ‘member movie theaters! Large auditorium where folks go to watch moving pictures. I kinda miss movie theaters! No need to worry, I have a feeling that we’ll all be watching flicks at the cinema-torium again before too long. Flicks about all kinds of things; flicks about love, loss, the human experience! […]

Treasury Edition crossovers! For those who may be unfamiliar, these here are BIG comics – “big” in terms of physical dimensions, not “big” in the figurative sense. “Big” as in larger than ordinary comics, not “big” as in “bigger than sliced bread” big. Although if you find these comics to be “big” in the figurative […]
