by Ian Wells

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 […]

Dead Man Logan #10 Writer: Ed Brisson | Artist: Mike Henderson |  Colourist: Nolan Woodard | Letters: Cory Petit After a couple of issues of scene setting for Logan’s return to The Wastelands we get an action heavy issue.

eBuying Comics: Week 17

by Ian Wells

I used to walk around comic conventions and question why would anyone consider buying the Marvel Essentials. It always struck me as a wasted investment buying collections of stories in black and white and on inferior paper. Fast forward a few years and I now love the idea of Marvel Essentials. There is nothing else […]
