‘Unmatched: Redemption Row’ Board Game Review

by Matthew Smail

Almost anyone who watches popular movies, reads comics or engages with fiction of any kind has surely made comparisons between their favourite characters – and in some cases crossover stories have become more popular than the fiction that started them. Without focussing on any particular theme, and by picking up a mixture of royalty-free and […]

A Memoriam In Four Colours: George Perez

by Ian Wells

“George’s vision and attention to detail were unparalleled and made devout readers into fans and fans into super fanatics.” – Jim Lee Just because we knew this day was eventually coming doesn’t make it any less sad. I can’t even begin to imagine what George Perez, his wife, family and friends have gone through these […]

A Memoriam In Four Colours: Neal Adams

by Ian Wells

Legend. Pioneer. Innovator. Influencer. These are all admirable words to describe Neal Adams, but I think there is one that is all-encompassing of the man and the talent and that word is; Giant. In one of the first Wizard magazines I read they were doing a retrospective on his Batman work. The piece opened by […]

eBuying Comics: Week 76

by Ian Wells

Recently I relisted some unsold items, but this time I used the ‘item specifics.’ eBay claim this increases traffic to your listings and increases the chances of selling. Below you can see the before and after results. I have come to the conclusion that what they claim is simply not true, although admittedly it is […]

eBuying Comics: Week 75

by Ian Wells

Welcome to the first Versus of 2022 and it is a big one to start! This year I wanted to go bigger than just pitting similar characters together. 2022 is also the 30th anniversary of the birth of Image Comic, so what better way to start than by having the Image 7 face off in […]

eBuying Comics: Week 74

by Ian Wells

Recent Sales Success I had the recent fortune of some puzzle pieces all falling into place at the same time. It only resulted in me selling one comic but I think the turn of events involved was worth documenting. It all started the morning after the Superbowl. I had the day off as it was […]

This week I will be revisiting the items from my X-Men sale that were first listed in Week 45. I am using an old Wizard Magazine this time around, as well as the grades and values on Zap Kapow Comics to come at the same issues with a fresh approach. Also this time round there […]

eBuying Comics: Week 64

by Ian Wells

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 […]

‘Crisis Protocol: Ghost Spider & Spider-Man Expansion’ Board Game Review

by Matthew Smail

I recently reviewed the Black Widow and Hawkeye pack for Atomic Mass Games’ Crisis Protocol, and I remarked at the time that it was the first expansion I had encountered that featured a re-release of a character that existed in the core box. Where Black Widow was concerned, the updated model and character card featured […]

‘Crisis Protocol: Hawkeye & Black Widow Expansion’ Board Game Review

by Matthew Smail

You’ll forgive me, I hope, for my lack of initial excitement at learning about the Hawkeye and Black Widow pack for Atomic Mass Games’ Crisis Protocol. Whilst I think Natasha Romanoff’s alter-ego is a fairly interesting character, I didn’t realise when this pack was first announced that this would be a very different Black Widow […]

‘Crisis Protocol: Rocket & Groot Expansion’ Board Game Review

by Matthew Smail

With loners like Thanos and Hulk having recently joined my Crisis Protocol ranks, the popular combination of Rocket and Groot offers a welcome change. In keeping with their relationship in the movies, this interstellar duo work best when taken together – in particular, because of the Deadly Duo Team Tactics card bundled with them, and […]

‘Crisis Protocol: Thanos Expansion’ Board Game Review

by Matthew Smail

Thanos (much like the Incredible Hulk) is a Threat 6 character in Atomic Mass’s Crisis Protocol game. Unlike Hulk, however, Thanos is a newer release and comes with a variant designed for play in the “normal” game as well as offering players the first “Ultimate Encounter” variant, which is considerably tougher. Think of these two […]

‘Crisis Protocol: Incredible Hulk Expansion’ Board Game Review

by Matthew Smail

It seems like an age since I last played Crisis Protocol, and what better way is there to celebrate the easing of restrictions across the UK than with a few friendly games using some new miniatures. The first in a series of these reviews is this one, for the iconic Incredible Hulk. This expansion was […]

Last weekend through a contact I made via an eBay purchase I was sent a PDF of the first edition of the Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide from 1970. I felt it was my duty to put it under the microscope. In doing so I took some inspiration from Ed Piskor and Jim Rugg on […]
