I am a chic who digs comic books, always have and always will. I love art and writing. I am a HUGE Deadpool fan. I have recently returned to the comic world and have started building up my collection slowly. This site is great.
First off I have to admit I am guilty of buying some comics off ebay. I am pretty torn about the whole thing because they make it so easy to get exactly what you want. On the other hand alot of them are also greedy bastards and want you to pay way over what something may be worth, not to mention the crazy shipping costs. It can be more than what you paid for the book!
The reserves are set high off the bat so that the bidding has no way but to go up. As a re-offender, I made the mistake of getting rid of my comics and my action figures a long time ago, big mistake! Now I have to regain my collection of favs the hard way. I have even tried looking for stuff on craigslist and so on, you can usually get a pretty fair deal there, but sometimes it's hard to come by and you need to have good communications witht the seller.
I know I should'nt complain if I participate in the whole "ebay" thing but this is just a rant and I want to know what my fellow comic book fans feel about the whole thing. I think that ebay is a great idea in theory, I suppose an agruement can be made that it's up to the indiviual to pay what they want and the seller is'nt to blame they just want to make money.
I don't know still pretty undecided if ebay is a good guy or a bad guy?
