“Justin’s Jabber” – Back Issue Comics! 11/8/17

Everybody see Thor Ragnarok? Good stuff, eh? Lots of yuks. So very many yuks. “Please kind sir, please don’t cut my hair.” Being a man of long follicles myself, I got quite a chuckle off of that one.    Journey Into Mystery #83, first appearance of Thor, CGC graded 5.5 (Fine Minus), $6,000.

Hola! Que pasa! We took in a nice Modern Age collection late last week. Lots of Deadpool and Harley Quinn back issues in there, and we know how much you guys like those! There was a first appearance of Death in there as well! (That’s Death the DC character, not Marvel’s skeleton in a purple […]

Egads! We’ve got ourselves an AWFULLY expensive book in this week! This is one of those books that’s so darn expensive that it’s kind of embarrassing to mention the price. The book in question is a very nice copy of one of the big Golden Age keys; and if you know comics, then you know […]

So if you read last week’s dispatch, you may remember that I was heard to remark that September 2017 proved to be a very slow month for buying collections here at the store. Well, if the past few days are any indication of how October 2017 will shape up to be, then expect business to […]

September sure has been a slow month for buying collections here at EC. It’s weird, I’ve never had a month where I came in this far under budget. No need to worry though, I don’t believe that we will ever suffer from a shortage of sweet stuff that we have to offer. Take for instance […]

I love super-hero and/or villain duos with referential names. For example: Cloak & Dagger, Thunder & Lightning, Hammer & Sickle, Rose & Thorn (not really a “duo” but still counts), or perhaps… Showcase #75, first appearance of Hawk & Dove, Very Fine (8.0) condition, $100. If you were interested in the first appearances of any […]

Hurricane coming! You’ve got all of your storm supplies already, so why not swing by the store and stock up on comics before Irma rolls through town? Your power might go out, y’know. No TV, no internet, no radio, no Blu-Rays, no video games. Add reading material to your list of Hurricane essentials. It’s just […]

Movies and television shows! That’s what drives back issue sales. Even the rumor of a movie or television show being developed is enough to send prices — on what was previously a very inexpensive back issue — through the roof overnight! Me? I’m not really current on all of the hot shows and flicks. I […]

Just imagine: if Batman aged in real time, that fool would be almost eighty years old! Batman would be fighting crime in a wheelchair. Actually he’d probably be one of those Jack LaLanne types who’s spry well into the golden years. Batman would be a silver fox for sure….   Batman #10, early Catwoman appearance, […]

Clayface is really gross looking to me. He doesn’t really look like he’s made out of clay. He looks like he’s made out of … well, you know … poo. I’ll admit that isn’t a terribly flattering comparison, but the book I have here is not at all … well … poo-like, I guess? I […]

I’m sure we’ve all seen the photos of Josh Brolin as Cable and ummm … whats’er name … (references Google) … Zazie Beetz (wow, that’s a really cool sounding name! I wish my name had three Z’s in it. My name doesn’t have ANY Z’s in it!) as Domino from the upcoming Deadpool sequel. First […]

Just graded books this week. You can’t read ’em, but they sure do look pretty. And, hey — if you think you might want to sell ’em in the future, graded is the way to go! These are kinda pricey books. If you wanted to read ’em you can always grab yourself a nice, inexpensive […]

Dave told me a story awhile back that I’d like to share: Apparently back when he was in high school, he and a few buddies bought an old school bus and used it as a mobile barbershop. These guys, they drove around soliciting people on the streets; offering to bring them on the school bus […]
