hello, world....

  • Hello, world (%u2026 there's a song that ........uh...sorry, got carried away)....

    Anyway, I%u2019m DUMPING all of my comics.....I can't afford to 'care' for them anymore.

    And now that DISNEY has bought MARVEL comics...well, let%u2019s just say, I took it as an %u2018omen%u2019 to get this 'four-color monkey' off my back. It HAD to END sometime, i guess.

    It's my personal collection, acquired over 30 years of %u2018comic hunting%u2019 in quick marts, bus stations, newsstands, comic shops, conventions, and, of course, on e-bay (what a 'long, Strange Tales.......uh....TRIP it%u2019s been).

    First, the 'hook' - i've got over 7,000 books (in 24 long-boxes) of various titles and companies (MAINLY from the 'big two' - DC & Marvel), with MOST (90%) graded at 9.4 (or higher), bagged (MYLYTES) and boarded, with (a few) signatures, from the most popular artists and writers in comics of yesterday and today ......

    all for 2.75 a book

    That's right .... for LESS than a comic cost TODAY (2.99, right?), you can give the holiday gift of vintage collectible comic magazines - no huss, no fuss, no long lines at conventions, no ebay haggling. I'VE done all the 'work' - so, you don't have to.
    Now, of course, for every BATMAN #244 (signed N. ADAMS / ra's al ghul) or UNCANNY X-MEN #137 (signed BYRNE/CLARMOUNT / death of phoenix), you're also going to get an ANGEL LOVE Special #1 or HULK 2099 #1 (not a LOT of 'minor' titles, but a wide selection).

    AND now ... the 'CATCH' (yes...there's always a 'catch, folks) : I want to try and keep this offer in the form of an 'INSTANT' COLLECTION - I CANNOT sell a TITLE RUN or INDIVIDUAL ISSUES of the items in question and keep the PRICE at 2.75 a book. YET, I wouldn't be opposed to 'breaking up' what I have to offer into TWO SEPARATE COLLECTIONS for sale - one, consisting of the DC TITLES and the other, the remaining MARVEL/INDEPENDENT TITLES.

    (and, TRUST ME, I've already 'heard' it all..."you're NUTS..." "..no FREAKIN' way..." "..i'll give you .25 on the DOLLAR..." - I figured - all the legwork, searching, preservation, and signatures i've gotten over the years 'adds up' to a 'measly' 3 bucks a comic, eh??).

    So....if anyone is (still) interested, feel free to request an EXCEL LIST of the items in question...

    (NOTE: I've also recorded what I have on the website "COMICSPRICEGUIDE.COM" (http://www.comicspriceguide.com/world/default.aspx?m=SCRODBUNDY) - took some time to input over 7,000 items....but hey, it's X-mas)
