It is of course the force of DC Comics bravest and boldest vs Marvel Comics mightiest heroes. The Justice League vs The Avengers! Not only are the bragging […]

The month of October will be dedicated to running auctions in support of The Hero Initiative. This is a project I have been planning the logistics for, for some time now. During the height of the pandemic probably seemed the best time to do it as it was helping a worthwhile cause. Of course on […]

In 1973 Marvel latched onto the Bruce Lee, Kung Fu craze and launched the character of Shang Chi into high octane kung fu action in the pages of their comics. Now it is my turn to latch onto the latest craze and talk all things Master of Kung Fu. Firstly I haven’t seen the movie […]

eBuying Comics: Week 63

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 […]

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 Easter weekend in between eating chocolate and re-watching The Defenders on Netflix I did some comic collection housekeeping.

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 […]

This change in the market has no doubt brought a […]

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 […]

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.

Trade paperbacks and hardcover collections are no doubt the comics industries biggest commodity. For my favourtite characters I am still a floppies guy.

The year is 2020, the most futuristic sci-fi sounding of years. With the futuristic motive set up and with this being the first eBuying Comics of 202o I am a firm believer in looking forwards not backwards.
