eBuying Comics: Week 55

by Ian Wells

This Easter weekend in between eating chocolate and re-watching The Defenders on Netflix I did some comic collection housekeeping. There was a two pronged attack to the housekeeping: First I wanted to update my want lists both into a new notebook and in order of priority. Next I came across a new website for cataloguing […]

Wolverine Wednesday #42

by Ian Wells

Wolverine #10 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artist: Adam Kubert | Colourist: Frank Martin | Letters: Cory Petit Immediately this issue gets bonus points for picking up right where we left things in #9. Not even a fraction of a jump forward. The art helps sell this in a big way. The first page is a […]

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 […]

This one is long overdue as I bring my Creator in Focus segment back to the pages of eBuying Comics – last seen in Week 38 where I looked at the key issues of Todd McFarlane’s career. I have decided to make a tweak to the segment, previously I looked at current values of those […]

eBuying Comics: Week 52

by Ian Wells

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 […]

Wolverine Wednesday #41

by Ian Wells

Wolverine #9 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artist: Adam Kubert | Colourist: Frank Martin | Letters: Cory Petit I just had a big, stupid smile on my face as I read this from cover to cover! Outside of just being a fun read, this issue actaully moves the story in interesting ways from where we left […]

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 […]

Wolverine Wednesday #40

by Ian Wells

Wolverine #8 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artists: Adam Kubert & Viktor Bogdanovic | Colourists: Antonio Fabela & Matthew Wilson | Letters: Cory Petit I actually really enjoyed this issue despite it not delivering on the cover image. As a sidenote, the cover must be the first time Adam Kubert has drawn Maverick since the 90’s […]

by Ian Wells

At the end of last week  we received the news that another highly influential artist pulled up a seat at the great drawing desk in the sky. On the 2nd December Richard Corben passed away at the age of  80. Another talent gone too soon. I had to take a bit of time to put […]

Wolverine Wednesday #39

Wolverine #6 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artist: Viktor Bogdanovic | Colourist: Matthew Wilson | Letters: Cory Petit Right away I found it very annoying this didn’t pick up immediately with the rainbow bridge reveal of last issue. That all probably happened in a different comic. Wolverine #6 is after all part 3 of a 22 […]

eBuying Comics: Week 48

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. Lockdowns, tier systems, furlough and social distancing. We have never experienced anything like this before. I hope in those […]

Wolverine Wednesday #38

I made the decision to review both issues of Wolverine that tie into X of Swords as one post, and as we are now going into a second lockdown I’m not sure how my LCS will be operating. So this week I will be catching up and giving a review of X-Force having recently picked […]

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 […]

Wolverine #4 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artist: Viktor Bogdanovic | Colourist: Matthew Wilson | Letters: Cory Petit When I first read this issue I found it a pretty solid read. But when it came to doing the review and I was flipping through it, it raised a few questions and is a tad confusing. Basically […]
