Review: National Film and Sci-Fi Museum

by Ian Wells

The National Film & Sci-Fi Museum opened its doors this August and I finally got around to visiting this weekend. The museum is located in Milton Keynes, right in the town centre. I still can’t believe the town where I was born and live is the home of the national anything. Let alone something I […]

eBuying Comics: Week 63

by Ian Wells

I thought I would dedicate this space to taking a moment to reflect on eBuying Comics in 2021 and look towards the future. I always used to buy the summer edition of Wizard magazine as it was an entertaining indicator on how good/bad comics had been that and how much better/worse they were going to […]

eBuying Comics: Week 61

by Ian Wells

Since making her debut in 2010 with her appearance in Iron Man 2, Black Widow has been a key ingredient of the MCU. I think would appeal to audiences about her was her being the human element, whilst at the same time being able to hold her own. Even though her story differed a lot […]

This week I am going to talk about a subject that I have previously touched upon many times before. I felt it was a bout time I went more in depth on it, as I have some personal connection with it and so can go deep. Without further delay the subject in hand is the […]

Last weekend through a contact I made via an eBay purchase I was sent a PDF of the first edition of the Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide from 1970. I felt it was my duty to put it under the microscope. In doing so I took some inspiration from Ed Piskor and Jim Rugg on […]

This Easter weekend in between eating chocolate and re-watching The Defenders on Netflix I did some comic collection housekeeping. There was a two pronged attack to the housekeeping: First I wanted to update my want lists both into a new notebook and in order of priority. Next I came across a new website for cataloguing […]

Wolverine #10 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artist: Adam Kubert | Colourist: Frank Martin | Letters: Cory Petit Immediately this issue gets bonus points for picking up right where we left things in #9. Not even a fraction of a jump forward. The art helps sell this in a big way. The first page is a […]

There really is only one topic to talk about this week. I am of course referring to Zack Snyder’s Justice League, the comics and the storylines that influenced it. A quick review to get us started. I loved it. I thought it was a triumph in story telling and cinematography. I think I only used […]

This week I bring you an interview with Richard of RJC Pressing. For hardcore collectors grades and appearances of comics is everything. Nowadays before sending your prized issue of to get the slabbing treatment you can send them away to be cleaned and repaired. I have heard the pharse ‘pressing’ heard many a time on […]

Are we in the new age of a second speculator boom? Immediately I would say yes. But there are a lot of caveats to go with that answer. It is not a heat of the moment answer. It is something I have believed has been coming for a number of years, possibly even longer than […]
