Default Pick Up Thor #344 NOW!

I've seen this book go up from $2 to $20 in a week. There is a seller on Amazon that I ordered from who shipped me a NM copy this week. The book was BEAUTIFUL! and if you want to get in one what could be a HOT, HOT, HOT!! book when Thor 2 comes out, grab 1 of the few copies they have left at $5.75

Even if you only get one, this could be a 100+ book in no time.. It's the 1st appearance of Malekith, who is the main protagonist in the Thor 2 movie.

Order it here: Wabash Valley Emporium before they're all gone. You'll see completed auctions on ebay for $20 and those copies are generally VF and I'm super happy with the condition I got from this place because they're clearing out old stock, stuff that's never been circulated.

Don't say I didn't tell you to grab this book!

I'm passing on this sellers info because like I said earlier the quality of the book I got for a 20+ year old book was phenominal. Almost as if it was brand spanking new off the printing press. So good, I ordered another one. I'd like to order about 10-15 of them but my wife WILL KILL ME!!!

It was from that seller but I found some others. Got 2 for $16 shipped. Much better than eBay price. Hope they're in good shape

I thought so. Got one each of 346 and 347 featuring malekiths first 2 cover apps as well. When the movie gets closer may flip the 3 in a lot. I'll probably end up reading one just because I love the origin stories and I'm in on the lot for so cheap. Got 2 coming from amazon. One listed as NM in brand new shape, hope it looks as good asthe ones you guys ordered!

Indy, as one of the resident comic gurus, I was curious if you'd be selling some graded 344s on here? I'm interested in owning/flipping a graded one. As well as a reader copy.

Give me a little time to find grade-worthy copies and yes, I'll offer it, or if you have one I can send it in for you. As of now I only have 1 I'd consider grading and that ones for me

Amazon still has a couple, but they're all VG-F and they're now 4-20, with most being closer to $20 now. If Amazon would combine shipping I would have bought more. I had 4 in my cart last week and they wanted like $20 for shipping, with no option to combine, so I could only order 1 at a time.

Okay. I found a place online with NM copies. Or so they claim. I'll order one at 4.99 and see what they turn up to be. Thanks!

http://www.comicsplusonline.com/stor...1/Thor-%23344/

My concern is Malekith is a lesser known villain. So hopefully they do an amazing job with him and cause people to be interested in him.

I was REALLY wanting Lokis first appearance. But 6.0 cgc copies are WAY to steep for me. Journey into mystery 85(?) is hard to find even ungraded. I was after a reader copy. Much like the silver surfer 1 posted here a few days ago.

Thanks for the heads up on Comics Plus. I just ordered 4 of them. When they come in if they're worthy of grading I'll offer them up here for anyone who wants to get one graded. I think it's a nobrainer provided they'll grade well.

To anyone who ordered multiple copies from Comics Plus. Please let me know if you received an email stating that they could only find one copy in stock.

I find this hard to believe. Web software like the one they are using allows you to enter the exact amount of inventory you have available. Are they selling items they don't have for all their other titles as well? I seriously doubt this. I figure they noticed a trend and are denying orders and have plenty to cover it. IF this is the case, this would be shady business tactics and I won't do ANY business with them in the future.


Keep your eye on Ebay for a seller posting Thor #344 from Corpus Christi, TX.

I just got the email. I responded telling them I know for a fact they found more than 1. I said to just ship my one copy. Hopefully it's in good shape.

Hells yeah! For $3 a pop with no shipping, that's a no brainer IMHO

Just picked up a copy on Amazon that stated "Good" condition. For $6 w/ shipping, figured it was worth a shot.

Indy, seriously, I'm a card collector....stop dragging me into this addictive hobby you call comic collecting. Lol!

Will do, but so far I have 1 I'll probably grade so far. I have another coming in and hope it's in good shape. Looks like Amazon is totally drying up on these. Last week is was littered with Thor 344's.. I should have tried to pick more up, but I just pre-ordered Bedlam and 10 copies of Revival #2 and Harvest #1 - can't buy them all!

Image #1s/speculating has been hurting the wallet...and the funny thing is, I could easily say I've made $ so far since getting back into comics (thanks to you Indy, pre-CBJ forum in the OT section) but it seems when I've made a little, it goes right from PayPal to something elsE that looks good. But between what I'm into on Revival, ToT, WD, and some misc. I have been doing very well. Good enough to keep some for PC and enough to have a little extra for my baby boy. Revival is my biggest investment and all signs are pointing to $$$

I'm hearing through the grapevine that there were producers at SDCC trying to secure the rights to the book.. hang on to Revival. The value might go up REAL fast if this proves to be true....

In fact, I was gonna sell my 1:10 Cover B Variant CGC 9.8, but now I'm gonna let it collect some dust.
