Default been gone for a while. what did I miss?

baseball has kept me away from comics for the last 2 months and haven't even had a chance to get on here. am I seeing that I missed buzz for Todd and clone? I have about 7 Todd #1 and I got 15 clone #1 for $10 a couple months ago.

I had a few pms about how baseball was going. for those interested regular season ended Sunday. finished off season hitting .472. the all-star game was Saturday but sadly it was rained out. and the best news was a few weeks ago I got an offer to come tryout for Atlanta braves at the end of the month. was very excited about it until I researched what minor league baseball players get paid. still undecided now whether or not I'm gonna make the trip down or not.

hope everyone is doing well

btw Phanos I didn't forget about you

Avengers 55 has picked up a ton with Ultron being confirmed for Avengers 2. Good luck with the baseball as well!

We all rode a wave of success in selling hot titles, but then lost it all on a bad tip to invest heavily in Image #1 titles from the 90s like Youngblood, Wildcats, Spawn, etc...

just kidding!

The Image hype has seemed to die down with #1 titles. Although Todd the Ugliest Kid and Clone saw bumps based on tv show and movies news. Think Thank saw a bump also with an announcement at SDCC with the possibility of becoming a movie. So definitely check your boxes to see if you have any of those titles.

I think Thanos will still be a major player in the Marvel movie world. He may not be the main villain in Avengers 2 (and maybe not even Guardians of the Galaxy?), but I have a feeling that he'll play a part in those movies leading up to a bigger role in the next films. In Guardians of the Galaxy #5 he made a strong appearance at the end of the issue. I won't mention any spoilers but I have a feeling something will go down. The "Infinity" storyline is starting very soon, so Marvel is definitely bringing back interest in him.

Wow .472 is amazing man! Let us know if you do try out for the Braves!

Hey man, this is kinda off topic but if you make it to the Braves, welcome to ATL! Great fans here! (I'm from ATL, Chipper fan since 5th grade) lol.

As for comics,if you can find FF52 I'd go for it to. Black Panther! But don't overspend on it lol.

X-23 will be in the new X-Men series, so get Nyx #3 ready to list.

Man of Steel #18 5th print. They are out there to be found for a few dollars. I found a bunch at a LCS for $3, so just look whenever you are in one. Bank.

if you can find the second issue when it comes out next week you should probably pick it up as I believe it is much smaller than the first.

Go tryout, you'll regret it later in life if you don't. Besides its a experience of a lifetime if your a diehard baseball fan!

Well, in your absence i started watching "Trailer Park Boys" and now realize that your avatar isn't just a picture of you. I'm freaking loving it. Oh, and Avengers #55. Big time.

trailer park boys is the greatest comedy Tv show of all time imo. and it's not even close. if you can't appreciate tpb humor you are taking life way to serious.

are they seriously making multiple prints of uber? were the 10 covers of each not enough?

I honestly don't know how i went so long without seeing it. It's awesome. Big ups to Netflix. I would honestly like to hear more about this Braves thing. I've literally watched 2500+ braves games since 1990 and live about 5 minutes away from Turner field. I usually make it out to about 20 games or so a year. Minor league pay may not be huge, but with the right signing bonus you could be rolling in it from the get. Any more details you are willing to share? (your sports background etc)

I played travel ball my whole life up until high school. then I played in high school and after that 18 year old me thought a career of booze, drugs, and whores was a good idea and I stopped playing. flash forward 11 years and I decided to start playing again this year. out of the first 5 games I missed 3 because of work and 2 I only got an at bat. once I was given the opportunity to start I blew up. I was hitting like I never quit. if we would have had all-star game I was gonna be the starter and it was gonna be played at Coca-Cola park. Phillies aaa stadium. the reason I'm hesitant to go-to tryout is the fact I'm 29. players don't start at my age, they retire. but due to much coaxing from friends I think I'm gonna go. I mean what do I have to lose? and in freak chance I get signed I figure ill do it for 2 years. if nothing comes of it then I'll "retire"

I grew up in the area. I lived in Macungie until I finished undergrad a year or two ago and moved out, so like 15-20 minutes from Coca-Cola Park. Nice place to play.

I'm like 5 years younger than you though, so different classes.

I think I only went comic book hunting there once maybe 5 months ago. The Whitehall mall store and the store across from where Taco Bell is/Pig Pen was.

Go for it man! The worst thing that happens is that you get a nice story out of it. What position?
