eBuying Comics: Week 50

by Ian Wells

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 […]

by Ian Wells

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Okay well only the first week of December but 2020 has been horrendous, so lets take the small victories. For a lot of people 2020 has been tough.

eBuying Comics: Week 37

Trade paperbacks and hardcover collections are no doubt the comics industries biggest commodity. For my favourtite characters I am still a floppies guy. If I ever want to try something new, or catch up on something I missed, TPBs are the way to go. They are so readily accesible nowadays whether it be from comic […]

This week I wanted to take a look at the wider world of collecting comics, looking at a very niche subject outside of just buying and selling comics online. So you buy and buy comics, at cons, local comic shops, markets and online. What do you do next?  Bag and board them, then what? Put […]

eBuying Comics: Week 15

by Ian Wells

For a lone wolf Batman has had a lot of sidekicks and assistance over the years. Affectionately referred to as the ‘Bat Family’ everyone has their favourite. Over the years the ‘Bat Family’ has become more diverse and I think it is fair to say each addition to the family in some way defines Batman […]

‘The Defenders: Season One’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

If there is one thing we know about The Defenders, it is that expectations were high. In a perfect world, this would be The Avengers of the TV world.
