Default Bigboytoys Tip of the Week! You'll love this one!

I guess it got posted on the site earlier than expected!

Helheim #2 "Death by Cuteness" Variant | Oni Press

Grab it while you can


I just hope no foolish lurker will sell this very low and destroy the market

Yas BBT!

Bagged me my quota of cuteness

Shipping was cheaper this time too, $30 instead of $40. I wonder if my emails with Tom had any bearings on this...

Been on the lookout for this everyday after stumptown

I have copies for PC already from a wonderful member here who went out of his way to get me some copies! Shout out to packers04!

So I was just on the lookout for this one to share to the community.. We should continue helping each other out on deals etc and not just to lurk and benefit from others

If I was not saving for the upcoming Con, I would snag a pair of these.

I posted in the Helheim #2 Grading Thread for this as you guys are gonna have to send me your own book for the grading as they had this book on TIGHT lock down and it was impossible to get multiples of. I still want to do a grading order for it as it's a killer variant, and the price will be $50 per book (my normal grading/shipping fee) as the books are $20 each (same as show)

So make sure you go order your Helheim #2 book(s) and let me know if you're going to send one to me for the grading order.

Thanks. I listed my personal copy on eBay hopping someone would be crazy enough to bid but probably not now because of that. I might pick up a few more copies.

It happens to all of us Ratherunique. You're not alone. I was thinking a few mins ago that I may not have ordered enough Walking Dead #110 which comes out next week. If not, no biggie, but if it's an action packed key issue, I'll be kicking myself..

They're saying #110 and #111 might be great issues

Yeah, really only makes sense if you buy 2+ with the $10 shipping. The shipping killed it for me on this. If you want this book though, it will never be cheaper than it is on Oni.

I should have ordered 2, I had a momentary moment of frugalness. I will probably send mine in Indy but with my luck it won't be a 9.8. Wonder if I can call and tack one on? lol

I will probably send you my Star Wars #1 sketch to send in at some point in the coming months but leary since I am not sure what it will grade out as, looks mostly good but worried about the spine edge.

Luck will eventually turn around my friend. I'll wish you all the best with the one you receive

As per Packers04 though, none of the copies on stumptown were 9.8. The ones with Oni were about 9.2-9.4 copies then the one that was being sold with joelle's booth were even worse.

I had them cancel my order and I ended up putting a new order in for 2 issues. They literally emailed me back in about 30 seconds, talk about great customer service.

Yeah, I spoke with Tom at Oni and told him how my B/W's were damaged due to them not using anything to secure the books last time and I hope these arrived in good shape, and he said he would make sure they're packed well AND he's including 2 replacement copies of the B/W books that had corner dings due to their cruddy packaging.. sometimes you just have to tell them what's going on, and most good companies will work with you. Oni got some bonus points today!

I also can agree, the Stumptown copies were hard to find, and the ones that were found were not in the best of shape. Hoping these are better.

To be more clear none that I saw we're 9.8's. I went through Joelle's last 7 copies and they didn't look the greatest. At oni the 2 I got they didn't let you choose or even see. They had them behind the table. Every single copy I saw had a slight to moderate or even more extreme blunted left corner. Some had printing smudges near the barcode in the bottom left. Also there was the normal spine issues aswell but luckily none that I got from Joelle or Oni wasn't too bad as far as spine stress/ ticks.
