The X-Men have certainly had a roller coaster ride in their fifty six years existence. Starting out with a roster of five (Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Beast, Iceman and Angel) led by Charles Xavier the ranks of the X-Men increased […]

For a while now I have toyed with the idea of purposefully buying comics on eBay with the goal of reselling them for a profit. A lot of items have been selling or should I say listing and not selling since the inception of this blog have all been from my own collection. My listings […]

eBuying Comics: Week 27

by Ian Wells

When I first got into comics I would only really see Green Arrow in DC group shots in adverts and stuff. My train of thought at the time was ‘Oh The Avengers have an archer so naturally so do the JLA.’ I  really got into the character a few years later when I picked up […]

Dead Man Logan #10 Writer: Ed Brisson | Artist: Mike Henderson |  Colourist: Nolan Woodard | Letters: Cory Petit After a couple of issues of scene setting for Logan’s return to The Wastelands we get an action heavy issue.

Nothing hits the nostalgia sweet spot better than a good old issue of Marvels ‘What If?’ line. These stand alone alternate takes on Marvel comics continuity are fondly remembered by readers who were around at their start.

As comics are a visual media I am going to talk about collecting original artwork these week. When I first came up with this subject my initial idea was just the eBay hunting side of things.

This week I want to talk buying comic supplies and storage online… Do you know your Mylar bags from your top loaders? Are you using the right backing boards? Do you know the difference between a long box and a short box? Actually that last one is rather easy. There are as any different brands […]

It is fair to say like Star Wars in the 70′s and Game of Thrones today, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were a pop culture phenomenon. Between 1984 when the comic debut and the mid 90′s the heroes in a half shell were everywhere. Comics, cartoons, movies, actions figures and pizza boxes. The humble beginnings to […]
