  • Sounds like a bit of short-lived hoopla.

    BUT. . .

    I pick up my comics on Friday, so my comic shop better have my Batman because I don't really care HOW much it's worth, I just want to read the story. I rarely sell comics unless I need some dire emergency cash or I'm dumping them cheap at the flea market to make space.

    They're working on the third strike (Immortal Hulk & Walking Dead) when it comes to comics shooting up in value that mysteriously disappear from my hold because I don't pick up on Wednesday. They've done it once to my daughter too (Naomi). That ain't the way to keep a customer.

    Anyone else ever have this happen to them?

  • The lcs that usually has about 20-30 copies of Batman mysteriously said they did not receive any extra copies. I bet in a few days their Ebay account will suddenly have some selling for a huge premium.

  • Yep, my box has 'Lost' a few books too...i ended up cancelling it and told them i was never returning, then they up and went out of business to my pleasure. Now i build up relationships with LCS owners...i have them in my phone and call them as soon as i want something. Only 1 LCS still holds things for me, but ive spent TONS and i get along with the guy very well. He held me a BM89 (only 1, but paid cover) but still got it luckily...My brother didnt have the same luck...but hes a ahole to everyone over the dumbest stuff so its to be expected lol...

    My advice...get to know your dealers, you will know who is trustworthy and who is not...and only spend your hard earned money with those you want to stay in business, the rest will fizzle out...

  • I guess they took my reminder (from when they "lost" Immortal Hulk #2) that there's 3 other comic shops in town to heart and had both my and my daughter's Batman today. The guy even joked about how I needed to flip them quick online. Too bad that isn't why I buy comics.

    It's interesting to hear that this has happened to others. It just seems like a sketchy way to lose regular money from a customer just to get a few quick online sales.

  • Batman 412 is the first appearance of Mime who is Punchline’s mother. Any heat behind this one? I saw Instagram hyping it up.

  • I did a price check and it went up slightly from what we had it at, but not sure if thats from being in that movie or punchline...but i highly suspect its from the movie....other then that,in all honesty what has she really been in other then the lego batman movie...not a well known or often used character...Just because shes Punchline's mother, doesnt mean value trickles up the family tree lol...i know you know that, but putting it out there just in case...Mime will get forgotten unless shes used...

    I saw this information on Instagram. Some people on Facebook are saying that Mime is not Punchline’s mother. So who knows?

    I just thought it’d be worth a mention for speculation purposes.
