    All true,I'm sure. I recommend that folks who are still interested in becoming...and this is specific...a 'professional writer' google John Scalzi and his own book on this.

    When and if my local comic shop goes out of business, I will not be feeling any guilt about it one way or the other, at least in terms of making my own consumer choices to purchase where I purchase....

    Mile High is reputable as is LoneStar. Former is not 100% as far as grading goes on older books. Many good dealers on eBay, of which I am one. eBay ID: tokyodays comics

    Fellow here said he was a TPB fan and pretty much gave up on the monthly pamphlet issues. Makes a lot of sense, really. Guy was also confused by the pricing which, when based on page or issue-reprint...
  16. Sticky: cup of crapola, really

    I've nothing against Joe Quesada,one way or the other, but let's face it--he's hired to spin the s**t out of things, obfuscate as best he can, and...well, the usual.
