Why do people keep posting pics of this little furry creature who is running rampant with a heavy amount of arsenal on his back? A proponent of the 2nd amendment, perhaps?

Other than that; awesome grade on a great book! Great job, T!

BTW,

couple more goodies to add. I'm on this little kick right now of picking up some cheaper stuff that I want just kind of for fun and more for PC than investment necessarily. But shortly I'll be focusing on picking up a few higher end items to make up for it

so here's my two latest PC additions. probably two of my favorite series that I am reading right now...

Black Science #1 CGC 9.8 WP Ghost Variant


Lazarus #1 CGC 9.8 WP


thanks as always for the look/comments!

well this one had to go through kind of an adventure and had me wondering more than once if it was ever going to make it. first it got stuck in New York, presumably because of the weather. I think the tracking info showed it processed in New York and then didn't update for four days. Then suddenly it updated to out for delivery, and then delivered. Thing is...I didn't get it. But then this afternoon one of my neighbors stopped by and low and behold there it was! it had been delivered to their house by mistake.

so anyway, after a bit of an arduous journey, it finally made it home. this was what I put my ebay bucks toward this quarter so out of pocket it only cost me $44 which I thought was pretty solid!

TODD: The Ugliest Kid on Earth #1 CGC 9.8 WP



thanks as always for looking and I should have several nice maildays this week too

Nice pick up Mr. 9.8..
It could be worst. If all you posted were books with sigs on them, we would've probably called you John Hancock instead. LOL

thanks! really looking forward to adding ASM 300 to that one and the ASM 252.

so this latest arrival I picked up for two reasons. one, I really dig these 3D lenticular covers and two, a fellow board member was selling it for what I thought was a really solid price so I snatched it up and today it arrived home in my PC

Batman: The Dark Knight #23.4 CGC 9.8 WP (Joker's Daughter #1 3D cover)

sweet, good luck on the grades! I actually have a raw set from the Batman series. I think its Joker, Riddler, Penguin and Bane. pretty sweet looking books but will probably just keep them raw.

well today I got in my first books from the Indy grading club and I'm pretty happy with them so here they are...

Manifest Destiny #1 CGC 9.8 WP (Ottley Beast Variant)


Superior Spider-man #22 CGC 9.8 WP (J. Scott Campbell Variant)


thanks as always for the look and comments
