In 1866 David Livingston set out to find the source of The Nile. In 1924 George Mallory set out to conquer Everest. In 1936 Professor Jones fought of Nazis in a mission to find the Arc of The Covenant. Now in 2019 maybe, just maybe I’ll get my hands on my own Holy Grail. I […]

eBuying Comics: Week 9

by Ian Wells

With the New Year fast approaching I thought I would pay a little homage to Wizard Magazine and look at what comics could be hot in 2019. This just for fun as I don’t have enough experience in studying the markets, but maybe at some point during next year I will check in with my […]

Wolverine Wednesday #20

Dead Man Logan #1 Writer: Ed Brison | Artist: Mike Henderson | Colourist: Nolan Woodard | Letters: Cory Petit I know this is Wolverine Wednesday but Glob may be my new favourite character. I hope he is around for all twelve issues of this series. By having him involved he provides light relief to what […]

eBuying Comics: Week 8

by Ian Wells

With Christmas on the horizon I wanted to take a look at my ‘Top 4 Holy Grail Comics’. The reason it is four and not five is because the fifth entry on my list is the holiest of holies for Wolverine fans. I believe I have enough content to get a blog post about it […]

eBuying Comics: Week 7

by Ian Wells

The 90′s are synonymous with two things in comics history. The birth of the superstar artist and the crash of the comic market. Are the two related? The polite answer is possibly. But there were many factors that contributed to the crash. Between 1993 and 1997 the comics industry hit an all time low, a […]

The Return Of Wolverine #2 Writer: Charles Soule | Artist: Declan Shalvey | Cover: Steve McNiven I have often criticised comics that ask more questions instead of giving answers as bad reads. However if there is a character that this story trope suits really well then it is Wolverine. It is especially effective in the […]

eBuying Comics: Week 6

Season 3 of Daredevil is earning rave reviews on Netflix from fans and critics alike at the moment and rightfully so. I most confess at this time and I wear it with a badge of honour but I first became interested in Daredevil after watching and enjoying the 2003 movie with Ben Affleck as the […]

eBuying Comics: Week 5

As this is my fifth post milestone I thought it would be a good time to do a glossary of words and phrases that I have already used and will be using more going forward when talking about buying and selling comics. The list of words and phrases will cover a variety of topics ranging […]

eBuying Comics: Week 4

by Ian Wells

I have been collecting comics for nearly twenty years now and I still can’t decide where I stand on ‘slab’ comics. A ‘slab’ comic is a comic that has been encased in thick plastic and given a numeric grade. The leading company in this field is Comics Guaranty (CGC). The numeric grading system introduced by […]

The Return of Wolverine #1 Writer: Charles Soule | Artist: Steve McNiven | Inks: Jay Leisten | Colourist: Laura Martin | Letters: Joe Sabino My initial response after reading this issue was that it was a very solid story. A decent enough return for a very big character. After re-reading it my overall feeling was […]

With Avengers: Infinity War now available on home entertainment world wide and its box office rampage finally coming to a halt I want to take a look at the variations in price for first appearance comics for some of the characters involved in the movie pre MCU and now. It goes without saying you superstar […]

eBuying Comics: Week 2

by Ian Wells

After my success at selling New Mutants #98 my Dad happened to mention  it to some people at work. However he forgot the finer details of how New Mutants #98 is highly sought after, how popular Deadpool is and how £107 is a relative bargain when you consider condition for such an in demand comic.

Welcome to a new weekly column where I will chronicle the ups and downs of being a comic collector using eBay to buy and sell. Things didn’t get off the greatest of starts. When I went to list my first item for sale I got an ‘Access Denied’ message! I want to start by talking […]

Old Man Logan #43-#44 Writer: Ed Brisson | Artist: Juan Ferreyra | Letters: Cory Petit Can we just delay the return of Wolverine for a few more months maybe even a year? Or just give Ed Brisson writing duties when Wolverine does return. Another solid two issues that hopefully leads to a satisfying conclusion next […]

Wolverine Wednesday EXTRA: Marvel Legends 12″ Wolverine Review

by Ian Wells

This is my first ever toy review, but then again this isn’t a toy. It says on the box ‘Ages 4+’ no way at the price I paid for this I would give it to a four year old. It should be ’30+’. Then again at the height of X-Men the animated series’ popularity I […]
