eBuying Comics: Week 65

by Ian Wells

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 […]

This week I have very fortunately been given access to the Golden Age level membership for zapkapowcomics.com which I reviewed in Week 55. Also I have a brief interview with Steve of Zapkapow Comics as well. First I have to make an amendment to the last review. I now know how to add/remove single issues […]

eBuying Comics: Week 54

by Ian Wells

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 […]

eBuying Comics: Week 51

Comics may be more accessible than ever right now (as I state everyweek) with TPB’s being the biggest seller. As well as your LCS you can walk into places like Waterstones and HMV and be greeted with a healthy selection of the latest paperback collections. This change in the market has no doubt brought a […]

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 […]

eBuying Comics: Week 45

by Ian Wells

The Fantastic Four may well be Marvel’s first family but the X-Men are very much my family. I was a fan of the animated series as a kid and like most people was drawn to Wolverine and the infrequent appearances of Cable. There was something about Rogue that a young me didn’t understand! Things really […]

This week I have an interview with Ryan of Only Comics Fans. It is a site I can personally vouch for after using it very recently. It came across my Instagram timline and like all comic related things I clicked it. I’ll be honest a lot of this clicking ends in disspointment but this time […]

eBuying Comics: Week 40

by Ian Wells

So being in a pandemic is not fun! I decided right at the start that writing a blog about the often staggering prices of comics seemed inconsequential compared to real world events. Comics do have a great ability to be social commentary, whilst at the same time offering the ultimate in escapism. With the world […]

This year the character with the longest name in comics, and one of the coolest alter egos in comics, turns thirty years old. I am of course talking about the time-travelling mutant bad-ass that is Nathan Christoper Charles Dayspring Summers aka Cable. Although he has also been known as Askani’son, Chosen One, Traveler and Soldier […]

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 […]

As soon as you start reading/collecting comics you will soon learn one of the hottest topics is fantasy fights. We have all been in a conversation that starts with “Who would win in a fight…?” A lot of the time this world of fantasy pits hero against hero! We can trace our fascination with this […]

eBuying Comics: Week 30

From their humble Silver Age beginnings, to comic culture behemoth, to Marvel’s first successful movie franchise. 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 […]

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.

eBuying Comics: Week 24

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. But collecting original comic artwork  goes much further, covering a variety of ways to acquire such items. What I […]
